Stampin' Pretty Pals February Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ February blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! Our Design Team created projects using Sale-A-Bration items to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
For this card I used some of my favorite Sale-A-Bration items.  One of them being the foil paper that comes in Grapefruit Grove & Lovely Lipstick.  I used the grapefruit grove foil paper and ran it through the Country Floral Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.  It turns out with such a pretty floral pattern.  
I added a piece of the Painted Season Design Series paper over the embossed foil.  The Country Floral Embossing Folder and the Painted Seasons DS Paper are two of the newly releasing Sale-A-Bration items that you can earn with your order beginning Friday, February 15.
I fussy cut out a few of the butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly Design Series Paper (also a sale-a-bration item).  Then to make sure they matched the card base color, I used my light call me clover stampin' blend marker and gave them a touch of call me clover color!  I added some variegated ribbon and layered the grosgrain call me clover ribbon over it. The sentiment comes from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and is punched out using the Story Label punch.  
Have you not heard of the Story Label Punch?  It will be a limited release item during the month of March. Watch for more details on these awesome limited release items closer to March.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 13, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Spring Has Sprung” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

    1. Jennifer, love your beautiful card with so much bling and texture! I am a big fan to layered ribbon so love the pretty detail. Great job!

    2. Jennifer, so shiny and bright! I can't wait to get the Country Floral embossing folder! Love the texture!

      1. You will absolutely love that folder, thanks a bunch!

    3. Such a beautiful card I can't get over how the embossed foil catches the light.

      1. It really is pretty, but hard to photograph...thank you :)

    4. Yes, you found the wonder and shine of the country floral embossing folder on the Grapefruit Grove foil paper to be just as stunning!! Great card!!

    5. I can't believe how beautifully the foil paper works with the Country Floral embossing folder. This is just so pretty. The depth of color is amazing! Thanks for sharing!
