Sale-A-Bration Favorite #1: Hey, Chick
Oh. My. Goooosh! How cute is this stamp set!! Seriously, I’m in love. This is probably the cutest Sale-A-Bration set I’ve ever seen! It’s perfect for watercoloring, which is my favorite medium. And I love the story behind the creation of this stamp set! Here’s what our illustrator, Lori Sume, has to say about her inspiration for this set:
When I was a child growing up in Canada, I remember some family friends who had little chickens that I thought were so cute. A couple of summers ago here in Utah, I stopped at a friend’s ranch and saw all their cute animals including their chickens. They had typical chickens but also another kind called Polish Frizzle Bantam White Chickens. I think they are so funny with all those feathers flopping around on the top of their heads and how they like to stare straight at you and cock their heads.
So when I was assigned to create the Hey, Chick Stamp Set, I was so excited. I wanted to exaggerate the rounder chickens and really make them round, and I also really wanted to draw one of those funny chickens I saw at my friend’s ranch. It was a really fun set to create.
The Mini Egg Cartons are available starting today! They come in a natural off-white color but you can easily color them using a Stampin’ Spritzer. Just add a few drops of ink to the Stampin’ Spritzer and fill the rest of the way with water or rubbing alcohol. Then spritz until you’re satisfied with the color!
Sale-A-Bration Favorite #2: Carried Away Designer Series Paper
Hands down, my favorite bundle from the 2017 Occasions Catalog is the new Lift Me Up bundle, which features these adorable balloon stamps and coordinating dies. I was so excited to see the coordinating paper in the Sale-A-Bration brochure! When you purchase the bundle, you will qualify (or almost qualify, if you choose the clear mount bundle) for a free Sale-a-Bration product. This is the perfect choice! You’ll get 12 sheets of 12×12 paper–2 each of 6 double-sided designs.
The colors are so delicious too! If you’re wondering what colors these are: Mint Macaron (retiring June 2017), Night of Navy, Peekaboo Peach, Smoky Slate, and Watermelon Wonder (retiring June 2017). If you love Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder, order them before time runs out! Starting in May, they will be available while supplies last.
Sale-A-Bration Favorite #3: Tasty Trucks
Food trucks! Oh. My. Gosh! I love everything about this stamp set! It reminds me of the food trucks in Portland (they call it Cartlandia). What is it that’s so appealing about food trucks? There’s one in Austin I love too called Kebabalicious. I’m getting off topic… ha!
Like Hey Chick, Tasty Trucks is great for watercoloring! And it’ll pair perfectly with our new Watercolor Pencils that were just released!
It’s also got cute mini-stamps that you can stamp right in the window of the truck. If you’re not a fan of cupcakes (you monster!) make it a taco truck instead! Also, can we taco ’bout how awesome that taco pun stamp is?
Sale-A-Bration Honorable Mentions
The Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack is absolutely gorgeous. It’s a soft ribbon, so you can attach it to card fronts really easily. You can also make some gorgeous bows (in case you didn’t see the picture above) with this ribbon. You’ll get two spools of ribbon when you select this as your gift. The first spool is a white ribbon with silver shiny accents. The second is a vanilla ribbon with gold shiny accents. Both are so pretty.
For me, this set was the underdog of the Sale-A-Bration brochure. It was the one I saw, thought it was just okay and went on with my day. And then I saw all the gorgeous cards people have been making with this stamp set. I love the charm of these lacy stamps. The paper on the tan card above is from the new Falling In Love Designer Series Paper, in case you’re wondering.
