Darling Donkeys New Year's Card and Sale-A-Bration Sneak Peek


  • Stampin' Up! Darling Donkeys Stamp Set
  • January 2021 Sale-A-Bration Sneak Peek
  • Sending Hearts January Paper Pumpkin Kit - Order by 10 January 2021

I'm sure I'm not the only one ready to kick 2020 to the curb, as we look forward to a better 2021.  This card is a sneak peek of one of the Free Sale-A-Bration selections that demonstrators can order as part of their pre-order, and customers can select as a free gift with a $50 USD order beginning January 5.  Aren't these donkey's adorable?  You'll find so many uses for these happy donkeys on Birthday cards, thinking-of-you cards, and for just about any celebration.  I colored the donkey's with Smoky Slate Blends, and added Shaded Spruce die cuts using the Word Wishes Dies and the Playful Alphabets Dies.  You'll love creating your own playful scenes with these mischievous donkeys.

The card above uses a basecard of Shaded Spruce Cardstock.  Then a layer of whisper White for the image layers on the front and inside.  The three donkeys from the Darling Donkeys Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored using Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends Markers, and then fussy cut so they could be popped up on dimensionals and positioned to create a fun panorama.

The stars stamped on the inside and front cover are also from the Darling Donkeys Stamp Set.  They are stamped in Shaded Spruce.  The party hat is from the Zany Zebras Stamp set and also stamped in Shaded Spruce.  The shadow under the donkeys is from Zany Zebras and it is stamped in Smoky Slate ink.

The sentiment "Happy" is from the A Wish For Everything Stamp Set, and it is stamped in Just Jade ink.  The words "New Year"  Are die cut using the Word Wishes Dies and die cut out of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  The numerals 2020 are from the Playful Alphabets Dies and are also cut from Shaded Spruce cardstock. The balloon shapes are from a retired punch, and a punched from Just Jade and Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots to the card for a little bling.
