Happy Friday! Welcome to another Stamp Off with Susan, Jackie, and me. This week, we’re showing off our favorite Sale-a-bration products.
First, if you don’t know what Stampin’ Up!® Sale-a-bration (SAB) is, it’s my favorite time of the year. Customers, Hosts, New Recruits, and Demonstrators all earn lots of fun products during SAB (January 3-March 31, 2020).
Customers can select free Level 1 products from the SAB brochure with every $50 (or a Level 2 product with a $100) order. There’s no limit; the more you spend, the more you earn.
Hosts receive amazing credits for products as well as the super cute Little Ladybug Stamp Set if they host a party during SAB.
Demonstrators who join during SAB enjoy the standard starter kit – $125 in product of their choice – plus an extra stamp set of their choice and the mini paper cutter/Designer Paper Sampler – all for $99 plus tax.
Of course, Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators are also rewarded for sales and new downline during the SAB period.
Choosing my favorite SAB product was a no-brainer for me. It’s the Little Ladybug Stamp set.
I love the Little Ladybug Stamp Set. There are four adorable little ladybugs (plus a row of four others) and a large flower plus fun sentiments in the stamp set. Even better, beginning February 3, there will be dies that coordinate with the set – so no fussy cutting the ladybugs! The coordination products will be available through March 31. Take a look at all the coordination products in this video.
To make my card, I stamped the flower on Whisper White Cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, and stamped the sentiment using Calypso Coral Classic Ink.Then I stamped two of the ladybugs on another scrap of Whisper White Cardstock, again in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
I colored the flower using the Blackberry Bliss and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs. The ladybugs are colored using Petal Pink, Mango Melody, and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs. Because I’m a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator, I was able to preorder the coordinating dies a month early, so I used them to die-cut the ladybugs.
After I embossed the Blackberry Bliss Cardstock with the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder, I adhered it to a Whisper White card base. I die-cut a label from the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper using the Painted Labels Dies from the January-June Mini Catalog and added it to the front of the card. The stamped Whisper White layer is added to the card with Stamping Dimensionals. Finally, I added the die-cut ladybugs, also with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
These little ladies are so fun to play with. At our recent demonstrator meeting, one of our local demonstrators (Donna) showed us some pins she made using stamps and punches. These little bugs would make darling pins, and they are also perfect for Valentines. All you have to do to earn this stamp set is host a $300 minimum party. Of course, your guests will earn a Sale-a-bration product for every $50 they spend, so $300 is an easy goal to reach! Simply gather some friends, bring a snack, and I’ll do the rest.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
