Paper Crafting Blog Hop February 2020 Sale-A-Bration

I hope you enjoy our Sale-A-Bration themed blog hop this month with Independent Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world.  We are here to show you how to use those great FREE Sale-A-Bration (SAB) sets with items from the new mini catalog and the annual catalog. You may have arrived from Sandy's blog and her project was absolutely amazing.

My card for you this month features 2 items that you can earn for FREE with Sale-A-Bration, which runs through 31 March, but it is while supplies last.  So if you love something, place your order and get it now. 

My stamp set I am featuring from Sale-A-Bration is Sending you Thoughts, but I am also pairing it with Lily Impressions DSP, both FREE with a $50 in the USA.  

I started with a piece or Blackberry Bliss for my card base, and it is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  I then chose a piece of the Lily Impressions DSP and cut it at 4" x 5 1/4".  

Next I cut a coordinating piece of cardstock in Granny Apple Green at 1 1/2" x 3 3/4" and flagged the end using the Truly Tailored Punch.  

I then put the backside of the same DSP and it is cut at 2 1/2" x 2 1/2". I then cut another strip of DSP at 3/4" x 4" from the same pack of paper.  I finished by using the 2 1/4" circle punch in Granny Apple Green and Starbust punch in Whisper White and a sentiment from the Sending you Thoughts stamp set. I finished the front with some Champagne Rhinestones. Here is the finished front of the card.

For the inside it is a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and a strip of leftover DSP that is 1/4" x 5 1/4".  Sentiment on inside is also from Sending you Thoughts. 

Thank you for hopping with us each and every month.  We love to have you join us and gain inspiration and creativity.  Now click HERE to head and see Annette's blog to see what she has made.

All products I used can be purchased on my online store HERE if you don't already have a demonstrator.   If you place a $100 order you can earn both of these items I used in this card FREE.  Please use the host code found on the upper right corner of my blog if your order is under $150. If it is over, please don't so you get all the hostess rewards.   I would love to be your demo. If you need catalogs please send me an email to request them and I will send them to you, but in the meantime you can view them from my blog online. 

Happy Stampin'!  I hope I helped you find some creative ways to use this stamp set, as that was my goal and you my audience are my inspiration!
