GSF Extraordinary Sale-a-bration & Occasions Blog Hop

Welcome to the GSF Extraordinary Sale-a-bration & Occasions Blog Hop. This Blog Hop will introduce you to some of the amazing new products from the 2019 Occasions Catalog and 2019 Sale-a-bration Catalog. You can earn Free Sale-a-bration products with qualifying orders until March 31st, 2019. 

You will be visiting blogs from Stampin' Up! demonstrators all over the world as we share our fun, creative ideas with you. You may have just visited Libby's blog or perhaps you are starting your journey with me. I hope that you will enjoy the projects we have to share with you today.
For my card design today, I have chosen to use the adorable Hey, Love stamp set (item #148644) from the 2019 Occasions Catalog and coordinated it with the Be Mine Stitched Framelits dies (item #148527). While both of these products have been designed for Valentine's Day projects, they can be used for a variety of other occasions. 
I chose the cute otter image for my focal point and stamped it a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I die cut using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits dies (item # 148551) . I colored the image using the Stampin' Blends Markers and I just love how easy they are to use. I also used these framelits to die cut a frame from Real Red cardstock to make the image pop. I stamped the coordinating sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and used the Tailored Tag Punch to create the look of a banner.

The card base has been created from Bermuda Bay cardstock and I added a layer of Coastal Cabana cardstock that I embossed using the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (item #141481 2018-2019 Annual Catalog). I used Clear Wink of Stella (item #141897) to highlight the raised lines to create the look of shimmery waves. 

The layer of hearts was created using one of the framelits from the Be Mine Framelits dies and I attached it to the card front to frame the sentiment. I used one of the small hearts created by the die for the otter to hold and then I colored it with Clear Wink of Stella.

I just love how this card design turned out and it would be sweet as a birthday or thinking of you card. These products provide you with so many possibilities to create fun projects. Remember, if you place a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration, you can choose a Free exclusive Sale-a-bration product. Visit my Online Store or contact me for more details.
