Extraordinary Hop - Global Stamping Friends


Welcome to a special Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop celebrating the new Sale-A-Bration and Occasions catalogues! Sale-A-Bration runs until March 31, 2019. During this time for every $60 or $120 you order before shipping and taxes you earn a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue for FREE!

So my plan was to share a pocket page with you featuring the new Happiness Blooms Memories & More card pack but ran out of time to finish the page - make sure to check back next week to see it! I had fun making this card - Whisper White Large Memories & More Cards and Envelopes and a the Happy Birthday 4"x6" card from the card pack made it a quick and easy card to assemble!

The Bitty Blossoms Punch Pack is perfect for adding dimension and fun flowers to your projects. For my card I punch out 2 of the flower shapes using Lovely Lipstick and Night of Navy. The center of the flowers is punched in Daffodil Delight. On the Night of Navy flower centers I added a Enamel dot in the center. I also added a Call me Clover Enamel dot on either side of the greeting although it is hard to see.


Supplies
Stamps:  None
Colours:  Night of Navy, Lovely Lipstick, Call me Clover
Accessories: Happiness Blooms Memories & More card pack, Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots, 3/16" Braided Linen Trim, Whisper White Large Memories & More Cards and Envelopes, Bitty Blooms Punch Pack

Shoebox Swap with Butterflies

Today's project is from Sunday's shoebox swap that my upline hosted for her team. I had a lot of fun. Unfortunately a few people were unable to make it last minute but the 3 of us had a good time! Lisa provided dinner and then we made our projects. I will share the other projects later this week!

Whenever I am stuck on a project for ideas, my go to place for inspiration is Pinterest. The theme for the shoebox swap was to use products from the Occasions and/or Sale-A-Bration catalogues.

To create the butterflies I stamped them on Whisper White cardstock with Memento Black ink then used a sponge dauber to put Smokey Slate ink around the end of each butterfly wing and then Daffodil Delight in the center. The stamp set is designed perfectly as the large and small butterfly are attached together as one stamp and then the Butterfly Duet punch lines up with both butterflies to punch them out. You can purchase this bundle and save 10%!

Supplies
Stamps: Butterfly Gala
Colours: Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Smokey Slate
Accessories: Butterfly Duet Punch, Tin Tile Textured Embossing Folder, Pearlized Doilies, Silver Pearls, Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration items)

Botancial Butterflies


Wanted to share a non Christmas project with you today. I love this simple card. The Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper has the butterflies ready for you to punch out. This paper will be available starting January 3rd.

I recommend quickly cutting around each butterfly before punching so that you don't punch others one as well. This will make your paper go further. It is hard to see in the pictures but the Whisper White strip was sponged with White Shimmer Paint to give it a pearlized look.


Supplies
Stamps: Butterfly Gala
Colours: Night of Navy, Whisper White
Accessories: Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, Tailored Tag Punch, Butterfly Duo Punch, Pearls, White Shimmer Paint, Stampin' Dimensionals

Butterfly Gala Card


At the crop last Saturday I used new product from both the 2019 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogues. You can start purchasing and earning rewards from these catalogues starting January 3rd. I was able to make 5 cards at the crop, it doesn't sound like much but between gabbing, colouring with the Blends (so relaxing) and other stuff I thought I did really well! You will see the other cards later this month.

I decided the card needed to use colours from the Brights colour family since it was for my niece's birthday. Thankfully I had lots of cardstock with me to make the choice easier since my first plan to use Gorgeous Grape didn't work with how the designer series paper was coloured in with Stampin' Blends. The new Botanical Butterfly designer series paper is in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue and can be earned with a $60 purchase. One side of this pretty paper is coloured images and the other is black and white (perfect to add your own splash of colour!).

Supplies
Stamps: Butterfly Gala
Colours: Flirty Flamingo, Bermuda Bay
Accessories: Stampin' Blends in Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lipstick, Old Olive, Highland Heather, Bermuda Bay, Tailored Tag Punch, Butterfly Duo Punch
