My Inky Friends "Time to Sale-a-brate!" Blog Hop: Celebrate You Thinlits

Welcome to the Lily Ink Pad stop at the My Inky Friends Time to Sale-a-brate Blog Hop. Each demonstrator on the hop (a linked circle of blogs) will feature one product from Stampin' Up!'s Annual treat, "Sale-a-bration" You can pick a FREE Level 1 product with every $50 you spend on an order or a FREE Level 2 product with every $100 you purchase. How cool is that? 

If you came from Cindy's Blog, she featured Amazing You, which coordinates with my product, the CelebrateYou Thinlits, although I am not combining them today. If you are hopping backwards, you've just seen Happy Wishes, which is also a Level 2 product. Either way, ENJOY!

Today, I am featuring the Celebrate You Thinlits, which are available for FREE during the Sale-a-bration sales period from January 3-March 31. Stampin' Up! also told us that this product will be in a a future catalog for purchase. Why pay later when you can get it for FREE now?

My set of projects began after I spent an evening playing with my Blends and the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. I ended up with a beautiful 12 x 12 piece of work that I decided to rework into a One Sheet Wonder.

Come back to my blog on Sunday to get a better template to recreate my projects. For now, I am just going to show you the cards.  I'll post supplies and more tips in my next post. I want you to be able to see all the fabulous blogs in this hop!

These two are classic card sketches. The flowers are the centerpiece, but the sayings are bold and fun. The amazing on card K was cut out of the White Glimmer Paper, but then colored with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends Marker.

I cut the amazing sentiment out of the White Glimmer Paper from the Myths and Magic Glimmer Paper. The other card, used the Celebrate to cut out the sentiment directly from the card.

I love both of these cards. I cut the Card C piece along a diagonal and separated it with a Pool Party Celebrate. The card G uses a cut out circle for a focus, so I added a layer of White Glimmer and a stitched framelit circle that I stamped the bird and branch from Petal Palette Stamp Set. To make the celebrate stand out, I layered a Daffodil Delight Celebrate offset on top of a Basic Black celebrate. 

On these two cards, I used the sentiments on a banner. The amazing is on a strip of White Glimmer Paper and the Celebrate was curved as I put it on a Whisper White banner. 

Card I looks simple, but I love the use of the black space. Card H uses the circle cut out of G and then an extra part I cut from the bird circle in the other card. It was a scrap just sitting in my desk and I love that I could incorporate it. 

I used Glimmer paper on these two cards also. I added a bit of Black Shimmer Ribbon and a bow for some fun. 

I hope you like my projects. I had a fun time creating them! 

Next up, visit Twila's blog to see her Happy Wishes Project, which are amazing. 


Happy Stamping!
