Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop in 2022! This month, the theme is Sale-A-Bration. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

A Friendly Hello Sale-A-Bration for the Pals Blog Hop

My Sale-A-Bration pick is the Friendly Hello bundle. I just love this cute little bird! You can color him to make him any species you want. For this card, I chose to make him blue so that he would coordinate with the paper.

This set can be earned with any $100 qualifying purchase. It is on page 12 of the Sale-A-Bration brochure.

To make the card

  • Begin with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock, score and fold at 4 1/4″ to form your card base.
  • Wrap an 8” piece of White Frayed ribbon around a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Friendly Hello designer series paper (DSP), secure the ends with adhesive, and adhere to the card base using Stampin’ SEAL.

  • Stamp the following using Tuxedo Memento black ink: your bird image on a 2 5/8″ x 4″ piece of Basic White cardstock, your sentiment on 5/8″ x 2 5/8″ piece of Basic White cardstock, and the three flowers on a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock.
  • Color the bird and flowers with the following Stampin’ Blends: Daffodil Delight, Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green, Mint Macaron, Misty Moonlight, Pool Party, and Soft Suede.
  • Crop two rectangles (one inside the other) in Fresh Freesia cardstock using the 3rd and 5th largest die from the Stitched Rectangle dies, using your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. (hint- you can crop them both at the same time, just be sure to use a non-stick tape {such as a post it note} to keep them in place.)
  • Adhere the frame to the bird piece using Stampin SEAL and attach to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Add the details

  • Fussy cut the flowers and adhere to the corners of the frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals. (fussy cut means to cut out with your Paper Snips)
