Stamping With Friends August Blog Hop Sale-a-bration

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends August Blog Hop as we showcase projects created with the new Sale-a-bration products. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you.
Sale-a-bration is such a wonderful time of the year and I am so happy that Stampin' Up! has given us a second chance to enjoy this amazing promotion. For the first time, we have a second Sale-a-bration Catalog to enjoy full of new products to earn for Free with a qualifying order. For today's card, I chose to use the adorable Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper, which you can earn free with a qualifying $50 order. There are so many cute animal images on the sheets in this paper pack, so I decided to fussy cut two of them to create my card design. For the sentiment, I chose the Penguin Place stamp set from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. I love that it has sentiments for a variety of occasions. For the background, I used the snowflake embossing folder from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders that are available in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

Fox and Blue Bird images fussy cut 
This cute clean and simple birthday card focuses on the cute images from the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper. There are so many cute images to choose from and it was hard to decide which images to choose for this card. I fussy cut out the fox and blue bird and attached them to the Basic White cardstock circle. I layered it onto the Misty Moonlight scallop circle to add a border around the focal circle. For the background, I embossed the Balmy Blue cardstock with the snowflakes embossing folder from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders. I ran it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine twice, once for the top half of the cardstock and the second time for the bottom half. I attached a piece of the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon across the front of the Balmy Blue cardstock layer to hide the join line and attached the circle layer on top with Stampin' Dimensionals. For the sentiment, I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment with Misty Moonlight Classic ink and stamped the small snowflakes with Balmy Blue Classic ink onto the Basic White oval. I layered it onto the Misty Moonlight scallop oval layer and attached it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. To embellish the card, I attached several of the silver sequins from the Subtle Shimmer Sequins for a touch of bling.
