Pals Blog Hop "Time to Sale-A-Brate!"

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!
