Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! We’re showcasing our favorite new products from 2020 Sale-A-Bration brochure. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Sale-a-Brate with Golden Honey DSP

If you haven’t seen the Sale-a-Bration catalog, especially the Golden Honey DSP, which coordinates with the Honey Bee Bundle in the January to June mini-catalog. Take a look at this gorgeous paper:

All the gold paper and accents are gorgeous! What’s even better is that the dies from the bundle cut out bees from the gold and Whisper White DSP! Winner, winner!

I created two cards for this blog hop. The first is for a beginning stamper and the second is for a casual or avid stamper. Both cards have the same basic layout, it’s just all the other “stuff” that goes along with creating the cards.

Here’s the first card:

Here’s the second card:

Using the Bundle and DSP

Once I picked the DSP, it seemed like the rest just fell into place using the Paper Players #353 sketch, as seen below:

I used the same DSP for the background matted by gold foil. In addition, I used the flax ribbon and large bees on both cards. Isn’t it great that these dies will work with both the stamp set and the gold and Whisper White DSP? Both cards have the oval shape cropped using layering ovals die set.

Both of the sentiments came front the Honey Bee cling stamp set. For the beginner card, I cropped the sentiment and gold mat using the same layering ovals die set. The “hello” sentiment was cropped using the Stitched Shapes die set. I outlined the oval using gold ink because I thought I had enough going on with the card without an extra mat for the sentiment.

The first card turned out clean and simple, which follows the CTS #353 sketch. Both the card and the sketch are minimalist formats. My upline, Brian King, designed the sketch, and his cards are usually beautifully clean and simple.

While following the same sketch, I added more embellishments for the more involved card using the Honey Bee bundle. The honeycomb gold foil pieces came from the honeycomb die. I stamped the beehive on Whisper White cardstock that I ran through the Big Shot using the subtle 3D embossing folder. Originally, I thought that the texture would be enough for the behive. When I was dry-fitting the card elements, I decided that I needed something more. I pulled out my clear wink of stella pen and drew lines across the beehive horizontally. I cropped both bees out of the Golden Honey DSP using the dies from the bundle.

As always,
