We Create Blog Hop: Sale-a-Bration Sweetness

Welcome to the FEBRUARY 2023 "Sale-a-Bration Sweetness" Blog Hop!!! We generally hop on the first day of every month, and this month the focus will be SWEET projects relevant to 2023 Sale-a-Bration promotion. I am featuring the new Share a Milkshake BUNDLE, along with the Adorable Owls stamp set you can earn for FREE through the end of this month. {scroll to the bottom of this post for ALL product purchase links}

I made a card that could be used for Valentine's Day. The stamp set has the saying "Be my Valentine", so you could use that one instead, if you wanted. And actually, the Adorable Owls Sale-a-Bration stamp set works great with the Share a Milkshake BUNDLE to make sweet cards for that special someone, anytime you want to recognize them. You can earn the Adorable Owls stamp set for FREE with a purchase of $50 in product...and the Share a Milkshake Bundle is $44, so if you grab that - you are almost there! Maybe just add the Opaque Adhesive-Backed Gems to your order to make your order $52.

I am the last person to fussy cut an image, but I wanted to use the Basic White Cardstock for the saying, and I thought leaving the owl on a white layer would separate it too much from the clouds. Plus, it allowed me to tuck the tiny heart in the owl's "hand" so it looks more like he's holding it. I'll try layering it another way for you tomorrow, so you don't have to fussy cut the owl.

The dies that are supposed to make shapes for ice cream, or whipped topping, in the Share a Milkshake BUNDLE make perfect little clouds for this card. I cut the clouds from the Sale-a-Bration Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper, and I cut the hearts from Sweet Sorbet Cardstock. The "cloud" that has a heart on it, has a little rounded slit under that area. That's because the die set has a straw that you can put through it when you are using it as the top of a milkshake.
The Sale-a-Bration Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper has tons of different designs that are perfect for all your Spring projects! You can earn it for FREE with at least $100 in merchandise on your order. If you are already going to get the Share a Milkshake BUNDLE and the Opaque Adhesive-Backed Gems for $52 so you can choose the Adorable Owls stamp set, then you'll need to add another $98 in product to have enough to qualify for the Dandy Designs paper. Just check out the rest of the supplies I used, and pick out the items you don't already have at home! 
In case you want to stock up on some useful cardstock and ink pads, the coordinating colors from the Dandy Designs paper are: Mango Melody, Petal Pink, Fresh Freesia, Calypso Coral, Balmy Blue, and Granny Apple Green. And Crumb Cake makes a great neutral background for a variety of colors.
I will be putting together more projects featuring the Share a Milkshake BUNDLE, the Sale-a-Bration Adorable Owls stamp set, and the Sale-a-Bration Dandy Designs paper, so stay tuned.
