I’ve been dazzled and amazed by all the Sale-A-Bration choices in 2019. Did you know we’ve had three separate releases? You can see all the choices in the online store by clicking here.
One of my favourites is the Painted Seasons DSP – available as a level 1 product when you spend $90+ or in a bundle with the Painted Seasons stamp set when you spend $180+.
The colours in the DSP are so vibrant with a mix of pretty art patterns and bold geometric designs.
When it became available, I made the decision to just get the DSP. I might have a little bit of buyers remorse now – as I’ve seen so many beautiful cards with the Painted Seasons stamp set.
But – as much as I’d like to buy one of everything, Mr Papercraft insists I spend money on other thing too (like feeding the kids!).
One of the things Stampin’ Up! do really well, is coordination across the range. So, even though I don’t have the Painted Seasons stamp set, I do have lots of other lovely stamp sets and found that the large rose – also a Distinktive style of stamp – goes really well with this DSP.
My team made their choice of these cards at our most recent team meeting as the make & take project.
I love using the art patterns as whole backgrounds for a card. I’ve then added the largest Stitched Circle in Wood Textures DSP, a Stitched Rectangle embossed with the Country Floral Embossing Folder (another of my favourite Sale-A-Bration choices), Polka Dot ribbon, Healing Hug rose and the Happy Birthday from Well Said on another Stitched Rectangle. I do love the stitched die options – how did we ever craft without them?
The rose in this version is Poppy Parade to coordinate with the DSP.
And the rose in this version is Blushing Bride…
If you ever have issues with the Distinktive stamps not giving you a crisp image, try using an old credit card or store card to scrape the ink to one end of your ink pad. Then apply ink from the end with less ink. Less is more for the Distinktive stamps. Another suggestion is to ink the stamp up with a sponge dauber or brayer.
As well as Sale-A-Bration choices in March, there’s also a promotion running with extras that coordinate with your Sale-A-Bration favourites. Love the frogs but hate fussy cutting? During March (while stocks last), you can buy the coordinating framelits!
There’s also framelits for Hello Cupcake, Lasting Lily and Painted Seasons plus a new punch (Story Label) and an exclusive stamp set (More Than Words). Click here to see all the Sale-A-Bration coordination products in my online store. These items are purchase only – they do not have to be earned.
