Sale-A-Bration Last Minute Inspiration

Here is some more Sale-a-Bration Inspiration from cards I received from some teammates.  I have linked all the products used below for quick reference and a quick shopping link to my store.  ewe... sorry about that photo, I guess that's what I get when I'm in a hurry. LOL!


I love how the background was stamped right on the card base.  On the two Bermuda Bay cards, there is no extra layer except for the Oh So Ombre Free Sale-a-Bration Paper, then a simple label. 

Now the center card takes it up a notch... still having a stamped background directly on the card base; which by the way, is Crumb Cake.  There is then a layer of the Rococo Rose Oh So Ombre SAB paper, with some splotches of ink, a rub of ink in the middle done with the Blending Brushes, then a White Embossed floral element.  


I love how creative my teammates are!  And so glad we share projects with each other for inspiration

Sale-a-Bration (SAB) end on February 28, 2021 so I am highlighting all things SAB from now until then.  I think this was my favorite set of projects so why not highlight them first.   These card features two fan favorites, Oh So Ombre 6x6 Designer Series Paper Stack and the stamp set, A Touch of Ink

There are 2 Levels of SAB... $50 earns and $100 earns.  Oh So Ombre is Free with a $50 purchase and A Touch of Ink is Free with a $100 purchase.  I have to say, this stamp set have a TON of stamps in it and it is 2-step stamping (outline & filler images).  Very cool.   So let's take a look. 


Colors of Oh So Ombre DSP:  Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green, Rococo Rose, and Bermuda Bay.

ALL gorgeous colors!  Here is a closure view of the individually:

  • Card Base:  Thick Basic White 5-1/2 x 8-1/2" scored at 4-1/4 on the long side.  Make sure to pre-score the thick paper before you fold in half to prevent cracking.  
  • Oh So Ombre DSP background:  4 x 5-1/4"
  • Solid card stock layer (in colors mentioned above):  3-1/4 x 4-3/4"
  • Basic White CS layer:  3 x 4-1/2"  (I made a mistake and cut mine to 3 x 4-1/4" but still used)
  • Inks are again in same colors as the Oh So Ombre paper and you will need Memento Basic Black
  • Stamp images onto Basic White piece, adhere to solid card stock and add to card with Dimensionals.


If you look closely at my Blackberry Bliss card, I stamped the butterfly and leaves on the Basic White just like all the other cards.  Then I stamped them again on some scrap Basic White CS, fussy cut out the butterfly and a couple of the leaves, then added the fussy cut pieces with Dimensionals.

One Sheet Wonder - using Sale-a-Bration Paper

SAVI Sunday 46 - One Sheet Wonder Using Sale-a-Bration Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper

How cool is it to be able to earn Free product!  This Paper Blooms DSP is really pretty and just a sweet design with beautiful colors.  Place a $50 product order with me and you can get this pack for FREE (January through February 2021), during Sale-a-Bration. 

I did a One-Sheet Wonder with one sheet from the DSP Pack and made 8 cards.  Let's take a look.


4 cards have Rococo Rose card stock base and a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Night of Navy card stock


and these 4 cards have Night of Navy card stock base with a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Rococo Rose


Here is the basic template I used which I took off of Pinterest.  The only thing I did differently, is that little 2 x 2 square in the bottom right corner, I left as a square.  


Watch my VIDEO here or below to see it in action as I walk through the entire cutting process.  I then figured out my card details and put them all together.  Your first cut is the most important!

I used a New awesome Stamp Set called "Happy Thoughts" and then "Detailed Bands Dies" to finish off the cards.

SAVI Sunday- Episode 44 - Planning for 2021

Welcome 2021!  And my first SAVI (stamping & various inspirations) Sunday Video of the new year.  I hope you rang in the New Year in a quiet and fashion, just like I did.  My hope is that we all have a better 2021 and I am anxious to see what it will bring. 

Who is with me on being a little old fashioned?  I love using paper calendars/organizers.  To me, there is nothing like being able to quickly flip through some pages to find what I am looking for and seeing is it written out.  I am just old fashioned when it comes to that.  The organizers I purchase have a clear front pocket so I decided to do some easy decorating and show off some brand new, upcoming Stampin' Up products!

  1. The Acetate and DSP paper are cut to the same size. 
  2. The acetate is laid over the DSP and lines up perfectly to the DSP images.  How cool is that. 
  3. I die cut 2021 out of Gold Foil using the Playful Alphabet Dies and glued to the DSP
  4. Take an approximately 13" piece of ribbon, tie to top spin
  5. Slide on an Antiqued Slide Element and tie a know at end of ribbon 

This was just another fun way to use Designer Series Paper.  I will enjoy seeing it every time I pull out my calendar.
