Inspire Create Share Blog Hop - Sale-A-Brations

For just 2 more weeks, we're Sale-A-Brating Stampin' Up! style! Earn exclusive products free when you Shop, Host, or Join through September 30th. This month the Inspire Create Share Blog Hop features projects using products from our Summer Sale-A-Bration Brochure. SOOOO many great products to choose from! Get them while you can!


For my ICS Sale-A-Bration blog post, I chose to showcase the beautiful and very versatile Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper that you can get FREE with a $50 US order during Sale-A-Bration.  It's a great compliment to the Peaceful Deer Bundle (stamp set & punch) in our Holiday Mini Catalog. The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Wishes Stamp Set also from the Holiday Mini Catalog. You can purchase the Peaceful Deer Bundle and the Heartfelt Wishes Stamp Set and get the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper FREE when you order with me through September 30th!

You could easily swap out the holiday greeting for "Happy Birthday" making the Peaceful Prints DSP and Peaceful Deer Bundle even more versatile. Can you think of another sentiment you might use on this card?

A strip of Designer Series Paper makes it easy to add a little something extra to the inside of your card.

I love all the details on this card - from the red & black buffalo check to the layers to the black scalloped circle to the rhinestone and Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon. All these elements work so well together without them distracting from the 2 focal points, the deer punched from the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper and the beautifully scripted Merry Christmas sentiment.
