16708671_10155745877019428_3711871117612901296_nWow! I can’t believe Sale-A-Bration has almost finished! What a ripper we’ve had this year – have you earned lots of freebies too? Because we’re almost at the end of the promotion, we at ESAD decided to put on another blog hop, to give you some last minute ideas for Occasions & SAB products. Myself and 18 other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from Aus & NZ are participating in this blog hop, and you’ve most likely arrived at my blog from the very talented Courtenay Heuston – so let’s get started!

15203245_10155442854679428_7459331317352465654_ninbetween line sab picFor my projects, I couldn’t go past my two favourite sets in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue – Delicate Details and So Very Much. I absolutely love script fonts, and lace, so these two SAB sets are a match made in heaven <3

I made a 3″x3″ giftbox filled with choccies, and a card to match. The box was made from a 12″x12″ piece of Kraft cardstock, and I used the The Crafty Owl’s Box Buster guide to make my box – find the guide HERE. All you need to do, is key in the box size you want, and it automatically calculates your cardstock size, and where to punch using your Envelope Punch Board!

The box was stamped with several of the Delicate Detail lace stamps, and inked with Whisper White Craft Ink. Once dry, the box was stuck together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, and left to dry. On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped lace images using Flirty Flamingo ink; then punched the top using a Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. A sentiment from So Very Much was stamped using Crumb Cake ink. The box was tied up with Flirty Flamingo Satin Ribbon, and the tag was secured on using Linen Thread. Here’s the finished box:

On a piece of Watercolor Paper, I stamped the Thank You font image from So Very Much, using Versamark ink; and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This was then given a watercolour wash with an Aqua Painter and Flirty Flamingo ink.

The watercoloured card front was then adhered to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensional. A banner of Flirty Flamingo card was stamped with a sentiment using Whisper White Craft ink, then adhered to the card front using Dimensionals as well. Sequins and rhinestones finished off the card.
