Pals Blog Hop January 2022, Saleabration

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.


January Pals Blog Hop, Saleabration, Sunshine and Rainbows, Awesome Otters

Step-by-Step Instructions:
  1. Adhere a 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ piece of Magenta Madness cardstock to a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ (A2) Card Base; then adhere a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper on top of the Magenta cardstock
  2. Emboss a 1-1/2″x 4-1/4″ strip of Magenta cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhere to the Card Front
  3. Use Versamark ink and White Embossing Powder to create the “It’s Birthday Time!” greeting from the Awesome Otters Stamp Set on a piece of Black cardstock, then crop it out with the smallest die from Tailor Made Tags Dies
  4. On a piece of Basic White cardstock, use Memento Black ink to stamp the Otter and Hat images from the Awesome Otters Stamp Set; color using Stampin’ Blends: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Magenta Madness and Daffodil Delight
  5. Fussy Cut the Otter and Hat; add to the Card Front using Stampin’ Dimensionals along with the greeting piece over the embossed Magenta piece
  6. Make a small bow using the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon and adhere with a Mini Glue Dot over the hole on the Greeting piece
  7. Decorate the envelope flap, if desired, using a coordinating piece of Designer Series Paper from the same collection – cut to 2-1/4″ x 6″, adhere to flap then trim excess around the flap with your Paper Snips

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on February 9th. Our theme will be Birthday Bash when our team creates birthday projects to celebrate our family and friends.

Until then, happy stamping in your craft space!
