Welcome to the 2011 Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop, showcasing the wonderful FREE items you can earn for each $50. purchase from the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration catalog!

If you are going in order, you just arrived from Heidi's blog Running with Scissors, she did an awesome job featuring the single stamp Homemade. If you are starting here, you can view all 21 blogs by clicking on the links at the bottom of each post, but if you get lost, not to worry! Just click on the banner above for a complete list.

Welcome to stop #8, I will be showcasing the single stamp For You Flower. This single stamp is very versatile and can be used for any occasion.


Do you like the vintage style? This card measures 3" x 6" finished. I used the Love Letter DSP, coordinating colors of Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, and Very Vanilla cardstock. I added a vintage brad and Chantilly crocheted lace.



This card is 5" x 5" square finished size. I love the Elegant Soireee DSP, I took the colors from the paper, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede to design this card. Also used is the Vanilla Satin Ribbon and Pearls embellishments.



I used the petal cone die from the Occasions Mini catalog to create this stamper's necessities pouch...it has my scissors, snail adhesive and M&M's tucked inside.
Below is a close-up of the focal point. I used the Pawsitively Prints II DSP, coordinating cardstock in Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron and Poppy Parade Ribbon. The rhinestones add a touch of bling to the circle around the flower image.



I hope you have enjoyed seeing my design using this stamp - For You Flower. Now it is time to continue the hop by going to Lisa's Blog, Add Ink and Stamp. She has some adorable projects featuring the single stamp Tiny Teacup.



Live, Laugh, Love and STAMP!
