Welcome to the Pals' February blog hop. We're so glad you are here because it's "Time to Sale-A-Brate!" Our Design Team created projects using Sale-A-Bration items to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal's blog. Either way, you've come to the right place. You'll find the full line-up below to help you move, or "hop" along from Pal to Pal.
Happy Wednesday! Initially I was not interested in the Tea Together stamp set in the Occasions Catalog. I didn't think I'd want to stamp the teapot without cutting it out by hand. Then I noticed that the Sale-A-Bration brochure offered the coordinating Tea Time Framelits Dies free with a qualifying purchase. That was all I needed!
I decided to color the rose image, and I'm finding I love our Stampin' Blend markers. I didn't have Lovely Lipstick marker, so I chose to use my Cherry Cobbler light and dark markers.
First I outlined the petal edges with the Dark Cherry Cobbler. Keep the marker away from the very edges so they don't bleed over. Next, I colored over all the petals using a circular motion and the Light Cherry Cobbler. Then, I lightened up the middles using the Color Lifter. The Cherry Cobbler is very similar to Lovely Lipstick, which is the color of the card base. Between the petals and the card base, I have that beautiful Grapefruit Grove Tufted embossing mat, so it's okay if they don't match exactly.
Thanks to my friend, Peggy Noe at Pretty Paper Cards for all of her great tips for using Stampin' Blends!

This card was so fun to make, although it did take longer than many of my usual cards. I was trying all kinds of things with my new Wonderful Romance stamp set and coordinating Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies. And of course, the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper goes right along with the stamps and framelits!

|This design is an alternative to the instructions with January's Paper Pumpkin kit.|
If you like crafting but don't have a lot of time to design, consider getting a pre-paid subscription to Paper Pumpkin from Stampin' Up! Kits arrive monthly right to your door and you can suspend you subscription if you'd like to skip a month at times. I love that everything is in the box except for scissors and stamp cleaner.

You receive a small new stamp set each month! I love this month's because it is a fun set. Here I stamped the little reptile and then colored it using my Stampin' Blend (alcohol-based markers) and Stampin' Write markers. Then I cut out the critter and adhered it using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. My card is a Narrow Note Card and it fits perfectly into it's envelope with my gift card. I used the sentiment "Happy Valentine's Day" from the January "Be Mine Valentine" kit, curving it onto my clear stamping block so it fit the curve of the outer envelope flap.
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to create. Please use my link to sign up for your own 3, 6, or 12-month subscription to Paper Pumpkin.
