Sale-A-Bration Farewell 2016 – Part 1


Welcome to part 1 of our Sale-A-Bration Farewell 2016 Blog Hop!

You’ll be hopping around to 8 countries and will visit 14 amazing Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrators, each with an inspirational project for you to enjoy. There’s just 13 days of Sale-A-Bration left and we’re getting ready to say ‘farewell’ to what’s been fantastic Sale-A-Bration of 2016. Currently you’re visiting me, Tracy May, from London in the United Kingdom. You can continue hopping my using the list of names at the end of this post. Now, let’s scroll down to see what I’ve been making.

My projects today are using what I think has to be my favourite of all the fabulous Sale-a-bration free gifts – What I Love!

What I love Sale-a-bration Farewell Blog Hop from Stampin' Up! Tracy May #sabfarewell2016

I started by stamping the background using the smallest of the two flower “filler” stamps in Soft Sky and Island Indigo. I then stamped the outline on a separate piece of card using Night of Navy and filled the petal colour with Island Indigo, before cutting it out and adhering it to the card over some cut out leaves, stamped in Pear Pizazz and some Silver Metallic Thread.

I was only going to make one card for today’s post originally, but I couldn’t help but make another. Shows how much I love this stamp set. I teamed this one up with Timeless Textures to create the background.
