Floral Cake Sale-A-Bration Crossover

Hello Kre8tors! I’m so excited to share a crossover card with you! What makes it a crossover card, you might ask? It combines a Sale-A-Bration stamp set, a Sale-A-Bration coordinating product, and a bundle from the Annual Catalog! I think these products work beautifully together, and I’m so excited to share this fun, floral cake card with you!

I knew I wanted to use the Happy Birthday To You stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration flyer. This stamp set is gorgeous and perfect for birthdays, Mother’s Day, or just because! I was able to watercolor a piece of Whisper White cardstock with an Aqua Painter and some Pool Party ink before stamping the cake image with my Memento ink pad in Black.

I also stamped a second cake in Memento on a clean piece of Whisper White card stock so that I could color in and cut out the flowers with the coordinating Sale-A-Bration product, Birthday Dies. I love that these dies cut out both the cake and the flowers! It’s a genius way to get double duty from this stamp set! I also cut out some small leaves from a scrap piece of vellum and colored them in using the Soft Sea Foam Dark Stampin’ Blend Marker.

The Bloom & Grow floral image behind this cake was the perfect element to just peek out from behind. I love the greenery sprigs and think it really adds dimension to this cake. I also took the Pool Party Dark Stampin’ Blend marker and traced over the black lines on the cake and pedestal to give the cake a little more definition and shadowing effect. I bunched up some Silver Thread to put behind the cake, and added Rhinestones to the center of the flowers for a little extra bling.

Can you believe that these flowers are colored in with a Pumpkin Pie Light Stampin’ Blend Marker? I think it looks so good! I really didn’t expect the orange to go with the blue and green, but it totally works! I used the Stampin’ Blend Color Lifter to lighten up some of the areas of the rose that I thought should have a bit of light on them. Finally I touched up a few of the round greenery leaves with the Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush. Love that bling!

Honey Bee Bundle SAB Part 1 and Kre8tors Blog Hop Mini Catalog

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more floral inspiration! Now, onto a very beautiful and special project using the Honey Bee Bundle and some GORGEOUS Specialty DSP from the Sale-A-Bration flyer!

I CASE’d this project from page 10 of the Sale-A-Bration flyer. I have already CASE’d one of them in a previous post, and will be CASE-ing the other in an upcoming post. I wanted to share this card with you because it uses some of the amazing gold foil papers from the Golden Honey Speciality DSP. When I first saw this paper, I knew I HAD to have it! There was no ifs, ands, or buts about it! And you bet I will be spending additional SAB rewards I earn on MORE!

This was a simple card to make, but it offers SO much! The stunning black background with the pops of Coastal Cabana… the delicate gold foil bee under the simple and small ‘Hello’ sentiment… the subtle hint of Coastal Cabana in the honeycomb under the gold bee… this card is packed full of beautiful details!

The best part about this paper? It’s absolutely FREE with a qualifying purchase! Just $50 in product will earn you a free item out of the Sale-A-Bration flyer. So that means if you purchased the Honey Bee Bundle, that gorgeous Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon, and an adhesive, you can get the Golden Honey Specialty DSP for FREE! Ask your demonstrator for details, or if you don’t have a demonstrator or are new to Stampin’ Up! go ahead and send me a message! I’d love to help you out!

The best part about CASE-ing the catalogs and flyers is that on some pages, Stampin’ Up! tells you exactly what you need to create these projects. On page 10 of the Sale-A-Bration Flyer, they give you a list of products you will need to create three beautiful projects. I followed that list to create this card, however I wasn’t able to get my hands on the beautiful Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon when I made this card, so I substituted for the Metallic Baker’s Twine that came in the Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack, which is also a Sale-A-Bration item you can earn for FREE with a qualifying purchase.

Check out my video tutorial below to find out how this beautiful card came together. And be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more great tutorials!

Party Pandas Side by Side Card

I made this Side by Side Card about two weeks ago and it has been sitting on my filming table since. I just wasn’t sure I liked how the Foxy Friends set looked with this card. But then, I received my Party Pandas Sale-A-Bration set and inspiration hit! I love how these twirling, dancing, happy pandas look on this card!

The bright colors are also really fun on this whimsical card. It’s perfect for kids both big and small! The Glitter Enamel Dots really punch up the fun factor on this project with their hint of shimmery goodness. I can’t help but smile when I look at this adorable card.
What stamp set do you think would work for this Side by Side Card?
