I pulled out this FREE Saleabration stamp set the other day and thought…let’s have some fun! I have boys…2 sons, a husband, and a grandson! Usually, there’s not a lot of girly things happening at my house so if I pull out a frog stamp I think guy project! But not this time…this time I thought pink, purple and frilly with a few bumpies for frog fun!
The stamp set, So Hoppy Together, is one you can get FREE during Saleabration when you place a $50 order. It has the 3 cutest frogs with a few fun extras and sentiments. I used Stampin’ Blends for the coloring because you get a great look even if you aren’t an expert with coloring. All you have to remember is to use Memento Black Ink so the color doesn’t bleed with the black.
For the bumpies I used the new Dot To Dot Embossing Folder in the Occasions catalog on Granny Apple Green cardstock. And then to make the card girly i added purple – Heather Highland and some of the girly 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon tied in a bow.
This is a perfect fun card for my niece…a young fun girly girl!

The Butterfly Gala Bundle in the Occasions Catalog has to be my favorite bundle right now. If you love butterflies and easy when it comes to creating then this is the bundle you want from the new Occasions Catalog.
This card was created as an invitation for a private card class I’ll be teaching next Saturday in Ellijay, Georgia. One of my newest customers is so excited to share Stampin’ Up! with her friends and family that she thought what better way then to host a private class. It will be a fun girl’s night out where she’ll be able to earn free product with her host rewards. Did you know that during Sale-a-bration you get an extra $25 in rewards with a qualifying order? Well now that you do, how would you like to host a fun gathering with your friends?
I wanted just a little bit of glitter so I added some Wink of Stella. Not a lot…just a little on the tips of the wings and across the middle. Just enough that you get a hint of shimmer when you move the card.
The checked paper is a Free product that’s available during Sale-a-bration. It’s the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and it’s awesome! Beautiful colors and butterflies on one side and all black and white patterns on the other side. It’s the black and white that gets me excited! And then the Poppy Parade as a POP of color! Makes me happy…makes me smile!
With the bundle, some card stock and a package of Rhinestones you will not only be able to make lots of butterfly cards but you will have earned the Botanical Butterfly paper for FREE! If I can help you with your order please call or text me anytime.

Three awesome ways to earn Free Stampin ‘Up! products from January through March. Please feel free to ask me questions. Call, text or email (info at the top of my blog). It’s going to be a GREAT Sale-a-bration!
Take a look at this sweet cupcake stamp set you can earn for FREE! Make it look realistic or have fun with colors…the choice is yours. Since I am ‘slightly’ addicted to the Gingham Gala 6″ x 6′ Designer Series Paper I made my cupcake in the fun Lemon Lime Twist color. I plan to make one in every one of the gingham colors. And yes, I again grabbed the black marker and added a little more fun! Just like yesterday’s project. You also get a peek at the sweet sheer Organdy Ribbon that’s also another Free item. Five yummy colors that match the gingham paper!
The way this works is for every $50 you purchase you get to choice a Free Sale-a-bration item. There’s no limit so you can get them all if you like! And make sure you look at the special items that are $100 rewards. All the items in the Sale-a-bration catalog are exclusive and can only be earned free during this time of the year.
So how long do you need to wait before you too can be stamping fun cupcakes? Only one more day! Sale-a-bration begins tomorrow, January 3 and goes through March 31. You’ll be able to view the catalogs here on my blog on the 3rd. Or if you want a catalog to carry with you request one here.
Have you taken a look at the A Good Day stamp set in the Occasions catalog? I know I overlooked it the first go round. But upon a closer look I knew it would make super “cute” cards. I have 4 to show you over time and I think you are going to love each and every one of them. Plus check out the gorgeous ribbon!
Just a few details and pdf tutorial:
First take a look at the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. It’s a soft crinkled ribbon that is easy to tie and is absolutely gorgeous on projects of all kinds. Here it’s in Peekaboo Peach.
The texture on the base layer was created with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This line of folders creates deep impressions especially if you spritz with a little water. When you use any of the dynamic folders make sure you use just one standard cutting pad on the top of the folder. If you forget how to sandwich this folder you can find a picture in the annual catalog on page 211.
Two new Scalloped Circle Punches were created to coordinate with this stamp set. They can be layered together or mix and matched with our circle punches. On this card I used the 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch matted with our 1-1/2″ Circle Punch.
The tiny leaves were colored with the light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend. For such small spaces I like to use the brush side of the marker using the lightest touch possible.
Make sure you order a package of the Delicate White Doilies in your next order. They add that little extra that makes your cards a wow. There 24 in the package for on $3 and you can cut them up and use just a portion like I did here.
