Another Sale-A-Bration Sneak Peek using Friendly Hello from Stampin' Up!


  • Another card using Friendly Hello Stamp Set - a FREE SAB Selection
  • Getting the most from your Paper Pumpkin Subscription.
  • Check out the upcoming Kisses & Hugs January Paper Pumpkin Kit
I'm playing with another print from the Friendly Hello 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper, a Free Sale-a-Bration Selection, today.  It's part of a Free Sale-A-Bration selection called Friendly Hello Stamp Set + Friendly Hello 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper, Item $159990.  And it includes both items with your $100 purchase.  I'm obsessed with this paper and stamp set and every time I pull it out, cards seem to make themselves!  I had no intentions of making cards last evening.  I just wanted to do a little clean up in my messy craft room.  Next thing I know, this card comes together!  How fun is that!  The Hello Friend sentiment is from this Friendly Hello Stamp Set.  I heat embossed one of the smaller floral images from this set onto the label I die cut using the Painted Labels Dies.  The floral images in this background are perfect for this card. Good news!  The White 3/8" Glittered Ribbon I used on the corner of this card will carry over from the soon to retire July-December 2021 Mini Catalog.   My customers have begun reporting that they've received copies of the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog AND the Sale-A-Bration selections brochure, so watch your mailbox for your copy. 

Floral handmade card with Helo friend sentiment

The basecard for this card is Petal Pink Cardstock.  Then a layer of Basic white.  Next, I used a new print from the Friendly Hello 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper pack, which coordinates with the Friendly Hello Stamp Set.  I added a Basic White die cut from the Painted Labels along with a Petal Pink sentiment label from the same die set.

In addition to stamping the Hello friend sentiment in Tuxedo Black ink onto the sentiment label, I also stamped the small flower image from the Friendly Hello Stamp Set in VersaMark ink, added White Embossing Powder, and then heat set it with my heat tool.

For added bling, I created a bow using the White 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon, Item #156408, $8.50 USD, which is a carry over item from the soon-to-retire July-December 2021 Mini Catalog.  Yes!  This fun ribbon will carry over! To finish the card, I added two Elegant Faceted Gems, Item 152464, $7.50 USD.

Get the most from your December 2021 Lots of Puns Paper Pumpkin Kit

Most of my Paper Pumpkin subscribers have received their December 2021 Lots Of Puns Paper Pumpkin Kit now.  If not, it should arrive shortly.  This kit includes a bucket load of wonderful items to help you create fast, fun cards.  

The stamp set included in this kit includes a variety of witty puns you'll use all year long.  Puns not your thing?  You can easily turn your card bases and envelopes from this set into more serious cards, too.
