Stampin' Up! Happy Tails stamp set and punch bundle

  • Stampin' Up! Happy Trails Stamp Set & Punch
  • Crackle Paint Background Stamp
  • Country Floral and Petal Promenade Sale-A-Bration Selections

Stampin' Up! Doggie Friends

With all of the exciting free Sale-A-Bration selections introduced as part of the second and  third Sale-A-Bration releases, its easy to forget about other wonderful Occasions catalog items that will help your earn these free Sale-A-Bration selections.

One of my favorites from the Occasions catalog is the Stampin' Up! Happy Tails bundle.  The bundle includes the photopolymer stamp set and coordinating punch, and the doggie stamp includes large and small spots or can be left plain.  Purchasing these two items as a bundle saves you 10% over purchasing the stamp set and punch individually.  I'm also using another Occasions catalog favorite, the Crackle Paint background stamp. See the item numbers below and add them to your Wish List today. Purchase them before March 31 to earn free Sale-A-Bration selections for each $50 you order.  But don't wait!  Sale-A-Bration is Stampin' Up!s best and busiest sale of the year, and items are only available until they sell out.  This year's sale has been one of the best yet, and with the final weeks of Sale-A-Bration coming to a close, many items have already sold out.  Stampin' Up! has added even more selections in the final month of Sale-A-Bration, so don't miss your favorites!

The basecard for today's card is Basic Gray.  Then a Smoky Slate layer is die cut using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and then stamped with the Crackle Paint Background stamp in Smoky Slate ink.  Then the hearts are die cut using the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies out of Smoky Slate cardstock.     


The paw prints are from the Happy Tails Stamp set and are stamped on Smoky Slate hearts in Smoky Slate ink.  The sentiment -- also from Happy Tails -- is stamped in Versamark ink,sprinkled with White Embossing Powder, and then heat set with the Heat Tool.          

Order the Happy Trails stamp set and punch bundle (150632)
and save 10% over purchasing them separately

The puppy is stamped in Smoky Slate ink on Whisper White and then punched out with the Dog Builder Punch, and mounted on dimensionals before adding it to the card.  The heart is punched out of Lovely Lipstick cardstock and it is part of the Dog Builder Punch.

Country Florals Embossing Folder

One of the most exciting, free Sale-A-Bration selections is the Country Florals Embossing Folder.  You'll find my recent blog post have covered several techniques for using this versatile new folder including:

  • Inking the folder with an ink pad before adding your cardstock and running it through the Big Shot
  • Coloring the raised areas of the embossed cardstock with Blends Markers or Daubers
  • Using the embossed cardstock as a background for a beautiful sentiment
  • Embossing a lighter shade of cardstock with the embossing folder and backing it with a darker shade of cardstock from the same color family for a monochromatic look for your card.

There are so many different techniques you can use with your Embossing Folder, and the Country Florals is a beautiful addition to your collection of Embossing Folder.  The wonderful Country Floral Embossing Folder is free with a $50 USD order (before Tax and Shipping).  Be sure to place your order for this Sale-A-Bration item before Sale-A-Bration ends, on March 31, The folder is available while supplies last.
