Sale A Bration Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to Stampin' Addicts Sale A Bration Blog Hop.
The blog hop starts at noon on Friday so all the posts may not be up yet.
If you have been following the hop in order you have just arrived from Shelley's Blog where she also created beautiful projects with the Elementary Elegance set.  We allowed 2 blog spots for the exclusive SAB items.  That's why there are 2 stops for some items.

. There are 18 stops on the hop and I am stop #13. So if you are just beginning with my blog be sure and hop all the way around until you come back to my blog so you won't miss any of the beautiful projects everyone has created to share with you.
***
First up a few cards.  One masculine . . .


 . . . and one feminine. 
I do love this paper offered for SAB!  It's got designs
for guys and gals in the paper pack.  I used the Top Note die
and cut it twice to get the fancy square layer on the 2 cards. 
***
For one of my 3D items I created a Birthday Banner.
I used the Perfect Pennants Bigz Die and circle punches
to create layers and dimension on the banner.  I did some shadow
stamping to make the images more impressive.
It's all strung on white grosgrain ribbon.  Festive and fun! 
Who wants cake?

***
My wow moment item!  A stamped bracelet.
I was so stuck for a WOW item to make with this set. Then I remembered this bracelet in my jewelry drawer. I made these a few years back for friends at convention. I had stamped flower centers from Greenhouse Gardens on the shell disks but was able to get the inked images off. I then stamped the small images from this set on them. These small stamps are perfect for jewelry!

*****
Thanks for hopping along! 
Please feel free to sign up to be a blog follower, or check back Monday for the how tos for the projects I created.  Hop on over to Krystal's blog now to see the amazing things she has done with the Stripes Embossing Folder.  Another great item you can get free during SAB.


Happy stamping!

Wow! you have some very interesting shaped pieces on your first two cards-- I especially like the one with "Happy Birthday" and the first one. (and the little butterfly brad is great accent!) I had no idea you could stamp on a shell-- seriously cool idea!!!

Nicely done.
The maculine cards are always the most difficult for me it seems. You've done it wonderfully.
The bracelet is indeed a "wow" item!
