Stampin’ Up! – CTC Blog Hop – Sale-A-Bration

Hi All

Hello and welcome to this week’s CASEing the Catty Blog Hop.

This week we are taking our inspiration from the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) catalogue.

CASEing the Catty Blog Hop 68 - Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration

Whether you’re joining the Hop here, or if you’ve hopped on over from Simone a BIG hello!

Remember to click on through this week’s CTC crew to see plenty of inspirational projects that the crew have created for you – there’s a full list on the CTC blog page if you get lost along the way.

My schedule has only allowed me to participate in the Hops every fortnight lately – so it’s Sale-A-Bration for me again! Just as well there is such a wide range of products to choose from! If you’d like to view all the FREE items you can choose from during Sale-A-Bration – check out the original SAB catalogue HERE (pdf) and the new items released in mid February HERE (pdf).

Last Hop I used one of the Limited Time stamp sets released last month – the cute Pedal Pusher which is not shown in the image below.

For this Hop I’m featuring the other two new SAB products – the Metallics Glitter Tape and the Party Pants stamp set which you can see on the right-hand side of the page below.

I’m CASEing the card in the bottom left hand corner.

I also wanted to showcase the 2014 – 2016 In Colors as they will be retiring soon and will no longer be available. I know I’m going to miss several of these colours – Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss and Lost Lagoon have been favourites of mine.


I made my stripped background by sticking the Silver Metallics Glitter Tape onto a card-base made from Kraft cardstock. The balloons are punch out of the five 2014-2016 In Colors using the Balloon Bouquet Punch and I used the 2014-2016 In Colors Stampin’ Write markers to draw the strings. There is a stamp for the string included in the set, but for this card I wanted the strings to fall differently than the stamp so simply drew the strings.Stampin' Up!

Each balloon has some stamping on it – either one of the sentiments from the Party Pants stamp set or one of the other images. Love how the stamp of the balloon tassel makes a cute pattern on the balloons too! I did all the stamping with the Classic Ink pads in the 2014-2016 In Colors

    Love the silver tape! And the balloons look great!

  1. What a fabulous bunch of birthday balloons, Jackie. That glitzy background really sets them off.

  2. What a great idea to feature all the in-colours, those bright colours will only be available for a few more months and you have highlighted them so well as the balloons.

  3. hadn’t noticed the way they had done the background – looks easy and fabulous. thanks for pointing it out. Also love the balloons and celebrating – you could give this to Beth – congratulations to her on her achievements. (and to her parents who always share in all the struggles and successes!)

    The glitter tape background looks fabulous, Jackie and the In Colour balloons look great together.

    • Helen H on March 14, 2016 at 4:34 pm

    Love how you have given each balloon it’s own special treatment & the colours are fabulous! 🙂

  4. Fun card, and I love this stamp set too. The glitter tape in the background is amazing!!

    Love your card Jackie, the glitter tape really makes it feel like a celebration. Great idea to use the soon to retire in-colours as well.
