Greetings my stamping friends. As I mentioned in my last post, I have many products from the upcoming July-December Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure. With so many great new products to choose from, it was hard to decide which ones to use first. I finally chose the Penguin Place Bundle that has coordinating designer series paper that is FREE during Sale-a-bration, Penguin Playmates.
I created the background by cutting 1/2” from each of the designs of the Penguin Playmates DSP and attached them to a roughly 4” x 5.25” piece of Basic White Cardstock using Multipurpose Glue. I then attached the completed panel to a 8.50” x 5.50” piece of Thick Basic White Cardstock that was scored and folded at 4.25”.
The penguin, fox and bear are from one of the Penguin Playmates DSP designs (pp. 4-5 of SAB). The Penguin Builder punch (p. 33 of Mini) cuts out the penguin and then I fussy cut the other two. I added a Wonderful Snowflake from the Whimsy & Wonder Suite (p. 25 of Mini) and attached the animals using dimensionals. For the bear, I just used a dimensional behind his head.
The sentiment is from the Penguin Place stamp set (p. 33 of Mini). Both the stamp set and builder punch can be purchased separately, or together as a bundle which will save you 10%.
My finishing touch was to wrap a piece of White Glittered Organdy Ribbon from the Peaceful Place Suite (p. 37) from the inside of the card to the front and finish off with a bow.
As you will note, I used products from three different bundles/suites which is a perfect example of how well Stampin’ Up! products coordinate with each other. Just one of the many reasons why I love using them.
Now to show you how to “Sale-a-brate”: The Penguin Place Bundle, Wonderful Snowflakes, and White Glittered Organdy Ribbon total $46.00 (before taxes and shipping). By adding a package of Dimensionals ($4.00) to your order, you have earned the Penguin Playmates DSP for FREE during Sale-a-bration.
You will be able to start ordering these new products on August 3. If you don’t want to wait, you can become a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator and choose items from the Mini Catalog as part of your Starter Kit. Just ask me how to join!
