Stampin'Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop January Edition: Sale-a-bration is Here!

Hey there! TODAY is the first  2015 Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! Our theme this month is Sale-a-bration!

If you're already on the hop, you've probably just arrived from Stella MacKay's blog,

Stellar Stamps. Stella is a creatively talented sister-in-stamps. I love her ideas each month!

Besides Christmas, Sale-a-bration is my favorite time of the stamping year! I LOVE that my stampers get to choose a FREE SAB item from the Sale-a-bration brochure with every $50 order!

My project for this month features both an Occasions Catalog and a SAB set:

Stampin_up_hey_valentine_3 - Copy

I used the Occasions Catalog Hey Valentine, choosing a Gorgeous Grunge stamp with Marine Mist ink for the "bubbles". My card layers are cut using Circle Collection Framelits Dies and the white heat-embossed greeting is cut with the Circle Card Thinlets Dies banner.

I added a Red Glimmer heart punched with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (ON SALE in this week's Weekly Deals! yay!)

Stampin_up_hey_valentine_5 - Copy

On the back I punched holes to insert the sucker stick with the 1/4" Handheld Punch, and stamped "you're the best!" from SAB set Simply Wonderful with Memento Tuxedo Black.

Before I decided on the Gorgeous Grunge bubbles stamp, I tried the Shaving Cream Technique on Whisper White cardstock, then stamped the fishy image with Tuxedo Black.

I can't decide which one I like the best, but stamping with Gorgeous Grunge is definitely quicker and less messy than the Shaving Cream Technique!

Darling idea Carol! So cute!

Cari

I think I like the shaving cream technique the best. It really gives the appearance of water/waves. One of these days I'm going to give this method a try!

Carol Carriveau

Oh Carol, both of your ideas are great, but I think that I am more partial to the Gorgeous Grunge spots for the bubbles....your design reminds me of looking at the fish through a porthole!
