Welcome to our NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin! Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin! with creative paper crafting ideas to share with you. Today we are showcasing products from the Stampin' Up! SALE-A-Bration Brochure.
SALE-A-Bration is the most wonderful time of the year for stampers because all the products we are showcasing are FREE with a qualifying purchase. These exclusive products are only available for a limited time so if you see something you like be sure to contact your demonstrator ASAP!
For my card, I am using the Friendly Hello Stamp Set and the coordinating Designer Series Paper(DSP). This paper is beautiful and I love the colors they are so fresh and bright.
I love a good fun fold card and this is Z-fold super easy one. You start with a piece of 11 by 4 1/4 inch cardstock, score it at 5 1/2, and use a bone folder so your score line is nice and smooth. Then you fold back the front of the card to the scoreline and use the bone folder to smooth out the new scoreline.
I used the scalloped Contours dies to cut the 2 frames and after they were stamped and decorated I adhered them to the flap on the front of the card. It's important to remember to only put adhesive on one side of the mats because the right side must be left free so the card will open.
Please contact your Stampin! Up! demonstrator if you have any questions or to make a product purchase. I would be happy to answer any questions about products or the techniques shown here. If you do not have a demonstrator, you can use the below link to order products from me or join my [name of your] team. Before you hop on to Diana Browning's blog, please consider leaving me a comment below I love hearing from other crafters.

Time for a Sketch Challenge
I love a good sketch challenge. This one from Freshly Made Sketches looked simple but was a little more challenging than I expected.
I started with a stitched circle but it seemed too plain so I add a circle underneath that looks like a wreath to me, and it seemed perfect with the birds I wanted to use.
I stamped the bird with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then I colored it with Stampin' Up! Blends alcohol ink markers.
