Sale-a-Bration Blog Hop

There's still lots of time in August to take advantage of the amazing deal during Sale-a-Bration!  You get to choose FREE product for every $60 you spend until August 31st!  How amazing is that!  Today I'm participating in a Blog Hop with demonstrators from around the world celebrating those amazing Sale-a-Bration Products!

I created my card on a recent Tuesday night Sketch Challenge.

My card features the Ringed With Nature Bundle and beautiful Rings of Love Designer Series Paper that you can get for free when you purchase the bundle!  Check out this fun card using strips of the Designer Series Paper and the gorgeous Embossing Folder.  I love that this bundle includes a Hybrid Embossing Folder.  What does that mean?  Well, you can emboss and cut out at the same time.  Check out the tree ring on my card.  So fun.  My background uses the embossing folder to create texture and then I added a tree ring plus the mushrooms.


  1. Cut Mint Macaroon card stock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold on score line to form card base
  2. Cut Poppy Parade card stock 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and adhere to card base
  3. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4" and embossing using Tree Rings embossing folder
  4. Adhere to card base
  5. Cut 6 strips of Designer Series Paper 3/4" x 3 1/2" and adhere randomly across card base
  6. Cut tree ring from Soft Suede card stock using Die and adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  7. Cut 2 mushroom caps from Poppy Parade card stock using Die
  8. Cut stems from Soft Suede card stock using Die.
  9. Adhere to Tree Ring
  10. Stamp sentiment on a scrap of Basic White card stock using Poppy Parade ink
  11. Cut out using Paper Snips
  12. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  13. Adhere Embellishments
  14. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  15. Stamp mushrooms in Soft Suede and Poppy Parade in bottom left corner
  16. Adhere to the inside of the card.
