Can you believe it has been over a year since I have said, “It’s time for another round of inspiration from The Stamp Review Crew“? But I am happy to say, it’s great to be back! What a fun hop we have planned for you! This week we are featuring items from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure, which you can get for FREE with a $50 USD purchase (before tax and shipping). If this is your very first visit to a Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop, we are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators whose mission is to do a blog hop on the first and third Mondays of each month. I know you will love seeing a variety of Sale-A-Bration items and the versatile and amazing things you can create with these products. I am Stop #24 on the hop. You may have just left Stop #23: the talented Charlet Mallet. Enjoy today’s hop!
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This card measures 4-1/4″ wide x 5-1/2″ tall when folded.
- Photobomber! With the exception of the crazy mop-top photobomber, this family of chickens was paper pieced using patterns from the Carried Away Designer Series Paper Collection, a Sale-A-Bration freebie! While one side features patterns that coordinate with the Lift Me Up Bundle from the Occasions Catalog, the other side has patterns perfect for decking out chickens! Of course, the adorable Hey, Chick stamp set is also one of the available SAB choices.
- Chicken wire! Settle down with a good movie and get ready to put those Paper Snips to work if you don’t want your chickens to fly the coop. I brayered Archival Basic Black ink onto the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and ran it through the Big Shot to create the illusion of chicken wire. I then snipped out the middles of the hexagons and brayered the “wire” with Smoky Slate ink. It’s a lot of snipping for sure, but the effect is oh, so cute!
- Another view! Rather than using glue, I simply stapled my wire in place, and then cut out the section which was over the chickens. The Speckles image from Glorious Grunge was used to add some gravel.
Here is another card I created earlier which features the Hey, Chick stamp set. It was too cute not to showcase it again.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card made with this adorable Sale-A-Bration set. Won’t you let me know in your comment today? Of course, if you ever have a question about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away. Now hop along to Stop #25, the incomparable Bruno Bertucci! I guarantee you will not be disappointed with what he has in store for you! If you get lost along the way, you can find a list of all the hoppers at The Stamp Review Crew. Until next time…
