February Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the February Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Annette McMillan's blog. Great project, Netty! Welcome one and all.

For this month's blog hop, we are all featuring Sale-A-Bration product in our projects. As you know, there is an awesome collection of stamp sets and paper to select from as your reward for purchases. Today I am mixing it up and have created this super cute card using three Sale-A-Bration products: Berry Blessings Stamp Set (SAB Level 2, pp. 14-15), Punch Party Stamp Set (SAB Hostess, p. 17) and Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper (SAB Level 1, p. 7).

I was so excited to earn the Punch Party Stamp Set because there are three coordinating punches: Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch, Double Oval Punch, and the Heart Punch Pack. (After weeks of valentine's cards, I decided to give everyone a break from the hearts today!!) 

Tip: Double punch two of the images with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch to create the squares!! Don't you love the Rectangular Postage Stamp punch!

The Berry Blessings Stamp Set and Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper coordinate with the Sweet Strawberry Bundle (Jan-Jun 21 MC, p.44, Item# 156214), however, I did not use the bundle on this card.

So, now it is time to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Maureen Rauchfuss.

This is a full list of our bloggers this month and their links in case you find yourself off track:

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I hope my project has inspired your creativity. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Be sure to check out the Business News section below - there is lots of information and updates to share, including a discussion on free products from the Sale-A-Bration flyer with each $50 purchase. BUT, all good things must come to an end and these fantastic Sale-A-Bration products will no longer be available after February 28 so time is of the essence!!

Stamp On!!

  1. Very cute - great use of that postage stamp punch - love how you made some of them smaller - very nice!

    1. The smaller pieces = a most excellent accident!

  2. Great card Sandy, particularly like the colours and the tip how to use the postage punch twice to get the square.

    1. Thanks! I really do like these 2 colors together.

  3. Fabulous card! Great job highlighting SAB products. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Great way to combine the SAB products

  5. I DO love that Rectangular Postage Punch! I don't use it enough, so thanks for the inspiration with your beautiful card!
