ICS Blog Hop...Time to Sale-A-Brate!

ICS header

Welcome to the Inspire Create Share blog hop!  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who gather together on the 2nd Tuesday of the month for this blog hop.  Every month we have a theme and this month it is, Time to Sale-A-Brate.  In case you are not familiar with Sale-A-Bration it is a fun  promotion that occurs twice a year.  This period of Sale-A-Bration runs from January 4 to February 28th.  During Sale-A-Bration you can choose a FREE Sale-A-Bration  product with a qualifying purchase.  You can see the Sale-A-Bration products HERE.


For my project I am using 2 Sale-A-Bration choices, Driving By stamp set and the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP.

 This card has a little secret it opens in a different way than  a regular card.


Kind of fun right?  The right edge folds back which allows the card to open.  Here are the details.

  • Midnight Muse card base- 5-1/2" x  7-1/2" scored at 3-1/4" and 6-1/2"
  • Sunshine & Rainbows DSP Granny Apple Green pattern 3" x 5-1/4"
  • Sunshine & Rainbows DSP Midnight Muse pattern 3/4" x 5-1/4"
  • Basic White CS 3" x 5-1/4" inside of the card
  • Basic White CS 3" x 3" cut using the Layering Circle die 2"-3/8"
  • Midnight Muse CS 3" x 3" cut using the Layering Circle die (scallop) 2-1/2"
  • scrap pieces of Basic White for the balloons.

You can see that I omitted part of the sentiment.  I used a self adhesive page marker to cover up the "hi" and then inked up the stamp.  Be sure to remove the page marker before you stamp the sentiment.


I also added a few dots using a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.  This marker is a handy one to have.  I could have also used the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to color in the sentiment instead of an ink pad.  If I had used the marker I wouldn't have had to use the page marker to cover up the word.  


The inside sentiment is from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set.  I also masked the car to stamp only the balloons.


This time I used a post it note to cover up the car before i inked up the balloons.  


Now it is time for you to hop on over to see what Dana has created for you!
