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:
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!)
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!
That's all for now. Check out the supply list below, then hop over to Judy Garza's blog HERE. Clicking on one of the supply list images will take you to my Online Store:
