Third Thursdays Blog Hop: Sale-a-Bration Coordination

Welcome once again to our Third Thursdays Blog Hop! This month our theme for the hop is Sale-a-Bration Coordination! Our posts will feature projects that either show or suggest coordination with FREE Sale-a-Bration product!
{you'll find Product Purchase Links for current items I've used, below the Blog Roll}

I have just moved across town, so this will be another short post. I just wanted to show how easy it is to use the FREE Penguin Playmates 12x12 Designer Series Paper, along with the Penguin Place BUNDLE (stamp set + Penguin Builder Punch). In addition, I'm showing you how you can create not only a holiday card, but also a birthday card - with exactly the same supplies!

The FREE Penguin Playmates 12x12 Designer Series Paper features winter/holiday scenes on one side, but the other side has some simple patterns that can be used for almost any occasion. There are the dots that I used, plus some striped patterns. There is one pattern that is made of pine trees, but there are no holiday decorations on that one, so it would be great for any outdoorsy or masculine type cards.

The cards are pretty self-explanatory...the only detail you might question is where I got the black and green ribbon! I used the Just Jade Stampin' Blends to color the Black & White Gingham Ribbon for each card. The inside of each card shows a little more of the design specific to each occasion.

Stampin' Supplies: Penguin Place BUNDLE (Penguin Place stamp set + Penguin Builder Punch), Basic White Cardstock, 2020-2022 In Color Cardstock Assortment, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad, Bumblebee Cardstock & Ink Pad (or 2020-2022 In Color Markers), Black & White 1/4" Gingham Ribbon, Stampin Blends Combo Pack: Just Jade (to color ribbon), Blue Adhesive-Backed Rhinestones, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, Paper Snips, Paper Trimmer, Grid Paper, Bone Folder, Simply Shammy (to clean photopolymer stamps). And don't forget to grab some Basic White Medium Envelopes for mailing your cards!
