Hippest Hippos SAB Card

Every Wednesday morning at 9am(-ish) Pacific Time I craft LIVE on FB and You Tube. This week I am unfortunately needing to go to work – so I went live on Tuesday morning instead. If you didn’t catch my video this morning you can see the card I created below. It was created using the (soon to be gone) Sale-a-bration Hippest Hippos stamp set, Hippo Dies and the Silver & Gold DSP.

I love this colour combo and you can find it ( plus some Pacific Point) in the Fine Sparkle Gems pack. This card is extra special too because it is a 2 for one card. You get a space to write and a smaller space for a gift card. Below is an image of the inside of the card.

I learned this great fun fold at my team meeting this past weekend. I love having a great team of crafters to share ideas with. If you are also looking for a crafting community, contact me to join my team (the Ink Pad Pals).

You can see exactly how I created this card in this video replay or by reading the printable card recipe below. All of the supplies I used to create today’s card are also listed below.

You can place an order by contacting me directly or clicking on the image(s) below.

Summer Sale-a-Bration 2022 – Perfect Pomegranate card

It’s the BEST time of year to shop at Stampin’ Up! – SALE-a-bration!!! For every $60CAD you spend you can earn FREE SAB items!

Today’s card was created using the Perfect Pomegranate HOST stamp set (FREE with a $375CAD party or personal purchase). It was also inspired by the TGIF Challenge (#tgifc376)

I used Sweet Sorbet and Crushed Curry inks to create these vibrant Pomegranate flowers. Then I blended the colour using a Blender Pen, which softened the image and brought out more of the orange in Sweet Sorbet.

To add a little interest to the background I also used clear embossing powder on the pomegranate seeds – hard to see in my photos, but beautiful in person.

Stampin’ Up! has also created a few samples in the SAB brochure using the Perfect Pomegranate stamp set.

To see all the details of how I created this card, check out this video. You will also find a full supply list below.

It’s the BEST time of year to shop at Stampin’ Up! – SALE-a-bration!!! For every $60CAD you spend you can earn FREE SAB items!

Today’s card was created using two SAB items! The Silver & Gold 6×6 DSP (FREE with a $60CAD purchase) and the Making Plans stamp set (Part of the Making Plans Collection that you will receive for FREE when you purchase the Starter Kit for only $135CAD). It was inspired by the TGIF Colour Challenge (tgifc375).

These soft colours mixed with the Silver DSP made me think of a pastel watermelon. I love this combo – it is great for a hazy summer day. This card is also a great one to have on hand – especially if you are hosting your first Stampin’ Party with friends and family 🙂

Here is a close up of the Silver & Gold 6X6 DSP. Use it as is, or add some colour to it with your blending brushes. The metallics are a great added detail to any card.

This is the full Making Plans Collection that you will receive for FREE in your Starter Kit, along with $165 in product of your choice, a past Paper Pumpkin kit, catalogues, and business supplies.

Penguin Playmates DSP

Today’s card was created using some FREE Sale-a-bration DSP and a Freshly Made Sketch. YOU can earn this DSP for free as well by placing an order of $60+ between Aug 3 – Sep 30. This is my FAVOURITE time of the year!

The only part that is stamped is the sentiment from one of the soon to released stamp sets – Christmas To Remember. The rest is DSP that is cut into rectangles and the bear was fussy cut.

I used Opal Rounds as an accent, the fabulous Glittered Organdy Ribbon, and some Wink of Stella on the tummy, paws and ears of the polar bear. A little bit of sparkle always perks up a card.

Contact me if you have any questions about Sale-a-bration, and get your wishlist ready so you can start ordering on Aug 3rd. 🙂
