Saturday Blog Hop: Loving Sale-a-Bration

Updated: Feb 1, 2022

Hello and welcome to the Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop! Have you had a chance to check out the amazing Sale-a-bration brochure yet? Stampin' Up!® always comes up with such beautiful products that you can earn for free! This week's theme was to choose our favourite stamp set from the promotion. I chose the Friendly Hello Bundle. I just love this stamp set and the bonus is that it also comes with matching Designer Series Paper to get you crafting right away!

I wanted to focus on the stamp set today, so I chose one of the simple backgrounds from the Friendly Hello DSP to help the lovely bird image to stand out. This is a line stamp set that you can stamp as is or you can try your hand at colouring and bring it to life. I went to my Stampin' Blends collection and pulled out the colours that I had to colour this image. I love the way the Granny Apple Green and the Pool Party look on the bird, so bright and fun!

The stamped image is on a piece of Basic White cut at 4" x 2 1/8" and the Granny Apple Green is 4 1/4" x 2 3/8". My favourite part of this stamp set is this awesome bold 'Hello Friend' sentiment. I heat embossed it in white on black cardstock. I know exactly who I am going to send this to as well! I love the cheery spring time feel this bundle has. It gives me hope for warmer days as we suffer through some brutally cold weather here in Calgary!
