Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Sale a Bration Sneak Peek 2021 - December 2020

Hello lovelies,

welcome to our monthly Stamping Sunday Blog Hop. Well it's the last month of the year....and what a year!!! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a chance to perhaps catch up with family in real life, over the phone or zoom! However we do it, it's important and special to keep in touch.

We have something really special to share with you this hop...a sneaky peak at what's in next year's Sale- A- Bration freebees!! During January (5th) and February 2021, Stampin'Up! are offering free products with every $90 or $180 spent in one order before shipping. The Stamping Sunday Team are showcasing what some of these items will be and have awesome ideas what you can do with them.

I'm Sharni Haines from South Australia you may have started here or come from the talented Sara either way have a look and keep on hopping around to see what beautiful creations everyone has to share with us today.


I have created a card and designed it 3 different ways....

1. The first way is designed for the Beginner, or what I like to also think of as simple & quick stamping. For those who like clean, simple and quick cards using very a little amount of product.

I am always drawn to the animal stamps, they always seem to catch my eye first! This cutie is from the Darling Donkeys - it's FREE when you spend $90 in one order. This is a super easy and quick card to make. I used Early Espresso to stamp the image and sentiment. The image was cut out, coloured in with Stampin' Blends (Smoky Slate, Ivory, Real Red & Granny Green) and stuck it to the card with Dimensionals.

I sponged on a little Bermuda Bay to 'earth' the figure.


2. Second is designed for the Casual Stamper who has a little more time, more products and likes to try out and use some different techniques.

This card showcases another FREE product - Oh So Ombre 6"x 6" Designer Series Paper. There are 48 sheets, double sided, in 4 colours. Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green & Rococo Rose.


3. Third is for the Avid Stamper who has the time, an extensive collection of products and a little more experience or likes a challenge!

For my third and final card for today I used the Playful Alphabet Dies to allow the designer Paper to show through with a pop of colour.

I added a second donkey and a bit of Linen Thread. The stamp is from another new set called Handsomely Suited from the Mini Catalogue being released in January.

So there you have it, my first play with the Donkey's and the DSP! I am hoping to try out all my new products over the holidays and have a bit of fun. Keep an eye out for more designs and ideas soon.

In the mean time, keep hopping to see what the rest of the team has to share with you...I actually can't wait!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.

Up next is the talented Katja...
