My Inky Friends Time to Sale-A-Brate


Hello, stamping friends! My Inky Friends are so excited to be showing this year's wonderful selection of Sale-A-Bration items from Stampin' Up! - seriously, I think this is the best SAB ever! I guess because this marks their 30th year, they pulled out all the stops!

If you started at the beginning and are hopping in order, you just landed here from Shelley's Miss Mad Stamper blog where she featured Party Pandas. SO stinkin' cute! If you are starting here, just follow the link at the bottom to go on to the next stop, and so on until you see them all!

I chose the Amazing You stamp set, and the coordinating Celebrate You Thinlits. I like to recognize my stamping team members' achievements, and this set just perfectly fits the occasion! Up first is a card for the member who was tops in sales last month. The 'celebrate' and 'you' were stamped, and the 'amazing' was die cut from the Thinlits. The black filigree die cut is from Petals & More in the Occasions catalog.


Since we're showing off items on the SAB brochure, I chose the Bubbles & Fizz DSP that is another freebie available with a qualifying purchase. Love the stars! Some more bling was added with the Gold Glitter Flakes (also in the Occasions catalog).


Up next is a little gift for my top seller for the last quarter. Sometimes it's the same person, but this time it wasn't! More of the Bubbles & Fizz DSP was used to make a bag that would accommodate a pack of Metallic Enamel Shapes. (These self-adhesive shapes are so convenient, and they can be colored with Stampin' Blends to match any project!)


Stampin' Blends were used to color the flower, which was stamped three times and fussy cut, with dimensionals between each layer. I added a couple of long-tail banners that match the card, and some glitz with the gold and black mini sequin trim.


That's all I have to share today. Thanks so much for stopping by! Up next is Sara at Lily's Ink Pad; she's highlighting the Celebrate You Thinlits, which is one of the two premium choices.
