International Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop: Hooray! (Perfect Pairings)

Hello and welcome to another International Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop!  I'm so honoured that the fabulous Ms. Kylie Bertucci in Australia invited me to join the fun again!  You're likely coming from my Stampin' (and real-life!) bestie, the incredibly talented and all-things-awesome Allison Okamitsu... yikes, tough act to follow!  

We have an incredible group of Stampin' Up demonstrators that wanted to share some creations using the FREE products in the Sale-A-Bration 2016 catalog; yeah, FREE!  With any $60 CAD order, you'll have your choice of these amazing freebies... and starting this week, there are three brand new ones! 

We've come together to share some of the new favourites, but also refresh your memory on the old goodies from the Sale-A-Bration 2016 promotion!  The new items were released just yesterday, but that's no excuse to forget about the existing goodies!  One of my favourites from the Sale-A-Bration catalog is the Perfect Pairings set; I'm a sucker for great sentiments, and this stamp set is packed full of them!  

This sweet little card actually uses two of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets; I've also added the balloon from Honeycomb Happiness.  Yeah, also free!  How cool is that?!

The Perfect Pairings set is so versatile and works beautifully with so many of our other products; I wanted to create a second card with the same "Hooray" stamp, but change it up to make a very different card.  The bright colours and fun balloons make for a great birthday card, and I love the chalkboard effect with these images, as well.

Thank you so much for stopping in today!  Please make sure you don't miss any of the team's fabulous creations for you today - use the links below to hop around the world and don't hesitate to use the "translate" button if necessary!  Next up is the fabulous Julie Kettlewell!

  1. Amazing card, Shannon! I love everything about it! The stitching, the gold embossing, the doily and the pop of glimmer from the new ribbon is perfect!!

  2. Shannon, it is easy to see where your blog name comes from...you have such an eye for color. Both cards are equally amazing!

  3. Lots of greatness going on here. You amaze me with your fussy cutting skills on the string and bow :)The stitched down vellum in gorgeous too!

  4. Gorgeous cards!!! I LOVE the colors of the first one!

  5. Clean and smart cards. I love the first one best.

  6. Both are stunning cards! The first is so soft and pretty and the second so colourful and vibrant! Love them both :-)
