ICS Blog Hop...Sale-A-Bration

ICS header

Welcome to the Inspire Create Share Blog Hop!  On the 2nd Tuesday of the month we gather together to bring you this hop.  Each month there is a theme and this month the theme is...It's Sale-A-Bration.   Thank you for joining us and enjoy all the stops on the hop!

There has been a second release of Sale-A-Bration choices!  These choices are all from the 2022-23 Stampin' Up! Annual catalog or the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.  


I realize the numbers are difficult to see.  It is important to note that you will need to use different numbers when choosing one of the above as your Sale-A-Bration gift.

I decided to use the Dots & Spots Dies and the Daffodil Dies for my project.  I am a big fan of the Dots & Spots die.  I think it is so versatile and  creates an easy and pretty backdrop.

I haven't used my Daffodil dies in a bit.  I got stuck thinking that daffodils are just a spring flower but there really isn't any reason that they cannot be used other times of the year.  I chose a slightly unconventional color combination for a daffodil of Petal Pink and Calypso Coral.   I wanted to use Petal Pink because I just received a roll of Petal Pink 3/8" Soft Polyester Ribbon.   The ribbon feels like suede and is easy to tie.  

The sentiment is from the Biggest Wish stamp set and inked in Calypso Coral ink.  The banner the sentiment is stamped on was cut using the Stylish Shapes dies.


Inside I added a strip of Petal Pink cardstock and another daffodil using the same color combination.  

Sale-A-Bration will end on August 31 but remember that products are only available while supplies last.  The supply of Pool Party & Soft Sea Foam Cards & Envelopes and the Tree Lot Dies have already been depleted.  Avoid disappointment and get your order placed.

Now it is time for you to check out what the talented  Deb Naylor has made for you!
