Thank you for joining me on my first blog hop of 2018! Today's hop features products from Sale-A-Bration. I'm hopping with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the United States plus Australia, England, and France! What is Sale-A-Bration? From January 3 - March 31, purchase $50 in Stampin' Up! product(s) from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog, the 2018 Occasions Catalog, the Clearance Rack and/or a Paper Pumpkin subscription and qualify for special FREE stamps, paper, ribbon, kits or even dies!
My entry features the FREE Sale-A-Bration Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper (DSP). The paper coordinates with the Bubble Over Bundle from the 2018 Occasions Catalog.
I started my project with an 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock scored at 4-1/4". I layered a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and on top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the Bubbles & Fizz DSP. I added the largest oval from the Layering Oval Framelits dies in Bermuda Bay.
The Bottles & Bubbles Framelits dies coordinate with some of the images on the DSP. I die cut the bottle of soda - pop or tonic, depending upon region ;0) - from another piece of the DSP. I covered the bottle portion with the Fine Tip Glue Pen to give it some dimension and shine. It is important to set this aside on a flat surface for quite a while so it will dry completely. Once it was dry I cut another bottle label from a portion of the same DSP and layered it onto the bottle with Stampin' Dimensionals. The bottle cap was die cut from a small piece of Silver Foil. I popped the entire bottle up on Stampin' Dimensionals. The "bubbles" in Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock were cut using another die from the set. I popped some of the bubbles up with the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and some I left flat to create even more dimension.
The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White cardstock in Bermuda Bay Classic Ink then cut up and attached with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
When I opened the package of Bottles & Bubbles Framelits dies for the first time, I looked at the images and immediately the two straw dies that are included in the set made me think of this:
Hockey sticks! Having been a hockey mom for many years, right off I saw sticks; particularly because the straws have little grid marks at the bending point that reminded me of the texture the tape creates when wrapped around the stick. These are serious flashbacks because even though I spent about 7 years at the ice rink, my son hasn't played hockey for about 20 years!
Anyway, I thought this would make a great thank you card for a coach. The thumbs up die from the Framelits make perfect gloves. I did have to pinch the circle from the Paisley Framelits, as it was the only one I could find that was proportionally correct. It's a bit smaller than the 1/2" Circle Punch. The ice is a piece of Soft Sky cardstock cut with the second largest Layering Oval Framelit with a piece of Vellum cardstock on top. The Basic Black ring is the largest Oval Framelit. Don't waste a whole piece of Basic Black cardstock for this. I layered the largest and second largest Layering Oval Framelits together and cut them at the same time. The ring fits around the outside of my "rink" and I can keep the inner Basic Black oval for another project.
The sentiment is from the One Big Meaning stamp set.
