Paper Crafting Blog Hop January 2022 - Sale-a-bration and Birthdays!

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop for January 2022 featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you this month - all spotlighting
projects that are Sale-a-bration/Birthdays!


I love the way our image stamp sets and our Designer series paper and our sentiment stamps all work together to make beautiful creations. For my card I used two Sale-a-bration products - Sunshine & Rainbows DSP and the Driving By stamp set. But I wanted to also go with the theme of birthdays, so I pulled my sentiments for this card from Best Year in our annual catalog - and they work great together!!

My card is a card on a card. This time of year I have tons of birthdays coming up - so quick and easy is the name of the game. I posted a video of a similar card and how I made it on my Facebook Live 1/7/22 - CLICK HERE.

The measurements for this one are a bit different - base is Crushed Curry 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"; DSP layer is 4" x 5 1/4". The for the little card you'll take a base of 4" x 5 1/2" and score it on the short side at 2 3/4" fold and attach to the base. Inside is Basic White 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" and a scrap of DSP. Outside is a 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" piece of Bermuda Bay; and a 2 1/4" x 3 1/2" piece of Basic White which is stamped and colored with blends. I also colored some rhinestone gems with a Bermuda Bay Blend and added as bling. I love the look and made several of the same card in no time flat - hope you liked it too!

Now click on through to the rest of those hopping with me this month to see all of their wonderful creations and inspirations! ~Maureen
