Friendly Hello

Stampin Up Friendly Hello

Friendly Hello is a bundle you can get for free during Sale-a-bration.  This bundle includes an adorable stamp set that has a cute little bird it in, flowers, leaves and some great sentiments.  The bundle also includes Designer Series Paper (also called Friendly Hello).  The DSP is 12′ x 12″ and includes twelve sheets (two each of six different designs).  You can get all of that for free with an $100 purchase!

I have to say I love the Designer Series Paper in this bundle.  The colors in this pack are Basic Black, Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green, Petal Pink, Pool Party and Shaded Spruce.   I love all those colors and they go so well together soI decided to use it as the focal point of this card.

To make this card I first cut out the Granny Apple Green piece on the front of my card using the die set called Nature’s Thoughts.  Then I layered the background pieces onto a Basic White card base.  I added the small strip of Shaded Spruce to separate the two different designs.  Then I took a piece of Basic White Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack and colored it using my dark Shaded Spruce Blends.  I love Blends because they can color so many things like ribbon, images and embellishments.   I tied that around the card base.  Then I layered the Granny Apple Green piece on top using Dimensionals.  Lastly, I took the sentiment from the Friendly Hello stamp set and covered the “friend” part using Washi Tape.  I inked the stamp up with Shaded Spruce ink, took off the Washi Tape and stamped it on a piece of Basic White card stock.  This is called masking and you can do it with almost any stamp.

There are so many great products in the Sale-a-bration catalog that you can get for free.  Some require a $50 order and a couple of them require a $100 order.  Sale-a-bration ends on February 28th.  You can order as many times as you want or place one large order and get lots of freebies at one time.

I made the card above using some products from the 2022 January – June Mini Catalog and the 2022 Sale-a-bration catalog. The flowers are from a stamp set called Daffodil Daydream. This stamp set has a coordinating set of dies called Daffodil Dies and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a bundle. If you order this bundle you will be eligible to get the coordinating Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper pack that I used for the background of my card for FREE from the Sale-a-bration Catalog. This paper is double sided with flowers on one side and patterns on the other.

To make this card, I first stamped the flowers in Memento Black Ink on Basic White card stock and colored them using Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends. Then I cut them out using the coordinating die. I layered them on a piece of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP and on a Pale Papaya card base. The sentiment is from another Sale-a-bration stamp set called Friendly Hello. I stamped that using Flirty Flamingo ink on a piece of Pale Papaya card stock and layered that on top using Dimensionals.

Lastly, I added some Matte Decorative Dots that will be, unfortunately retiring today.

I can’t have links to the products because they will not be live until tomorrow (sorry about that).
