ESAD Blog Hop | Sale - A - Bration 2019

Hello there stamping friends! Today and my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from the Facebook group ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) have a fun and fabulous blog hop for you. We are showing you products from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue and then showing what you can earn for free with the 2019 Sale-a-Bration promotion.

With some of the Sale-A-Bration products sold out, all of the Sale-A-Bration products that are shown in this hop are still available for you to earn (as of 10/03/2019).

I've use the Well Said Bundle from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue and then incorporated with it the beautiful Botanical Butterfly DSP that you can earn for free from Sale-a-bration.

I know the Botanical Butterfly DSP has been out for a few months with its fabulous colours on one side and the gorgeous black and white patterns on the other side. If you've followed my blog for a while now, you'll know that I'm a huge sucker for black and white and this DSP just appeals to me so much.

One of the DSP sheets has lots of images of butterflies and flowers all in black and white so this makes it perfect for colouring with the Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers and fussy cutting. Here I've used the Highland Heather Dark and Light Markers and the Daffodil Delight Dark and Light Markers. There is already a lot and shading and lines in the original black and white image so you just follow those lines already set out for the shading with your coloured markers.

The Well Said Bundle has all words and sentiments in the stamp set but in the coordinating Well Written Framelits not only are there words but there is also some fun images like some leaves, flowers, butterflies, hearts, birds. So it really is such a very versatile bundle. I've layered the leaves and the flowers flourishes,from the Well Written Framelits, behind the die cut circles and then heat embossed some of the words from the Well Said Stamp Set. I've also combined under the die cut circles some wooden leaves from the Butterfly Elements, also from the Sale-a-bration promotion. So if you were to combine the Well Said bundle with the Stitched Shapes Framelits you could then get the Botanical Butterfly DSP and the Butterfly Elements for free, which is most of the products that you'll need for this card.

Why not start out by colouring in the DSP sheet with all the larger butterflies and flowers and see what colour combo that you like and then use those elements for a fun and quick card? Once the colouring is done it's basically fussy cutting the images out and then putting your card together. Too easy.

I hope I've given you some inspiration today on combining products from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue and the 2019 Sale-A-Bration Promotion and and how you can get some products for free.
