We’re showcasing our favorite new products from 2020 Sale-A-Bration brochure. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place.

Little Ladybug Stamp Set - Free with $300 order or workshop. Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

I only have a few of the items from the Sale-A-Bration Promotion catalog (more are set to arrive on Friday) but so far, my favorite is the Little Ladybug Stamp Set that can only be earned for FREE with an order or workshop valued at $300 or more.  On that note, I cannot wait for the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper to arrive!  That is my #1 pick from the Sale-A-Bration Promotion.

Cut a piece of Whisper White Thick card stock  to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

Use a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Pool Party 6×6 Designer Series Paper to 3 3/4 x 5. Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to the following sizes:  3 3/4 x 5, 3 x 4 1/4, and 3/4 x 3.  

Adhere the 3 3/4 x 5 and 3 x 4 1/4 together and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use a Stamparatus to position and stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto the 3/4 x 3 piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Add two drops of Smoky Slate Ink Refill to a quarter size drop of White Embossing Paste.  Place the “dotted” Basic Pattern Decorative Mask over the top of Whisper White Cardstock.  Apply the Smoky Slate Embossing Paste with a Palette Knife. Let dry. 

Crop the embossed cardstock with the largest Stitched Circle Die.  Cut an edge at 2 1/2″.  Use a Stampin’ Sponge to apply Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, and Pretty Peacock. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use a Stamparatus to stamp the ladybug and flower in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  Color with the following Stampin’ Blends:  Light & Dark Real Red, Light & Dark Cherry Cobbler, Light & Dark Smoky Slate, Dark Black, Light and Dark Coastal Cabana, Ivory, Color Lifter. 

If you have the Ladybug Dies (available to customers February 4, 2020), quickly crop the images with a die-cutting and embossing machine.  If not, (I don’t have mine yet) snip with Paper Snips.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Add two Coastal Cabana Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sides of the sentiment.
