Sale-A-Bration 2020 Sneak Peek with the Artisan Design Team!

Guess what?!  It is almost time for the BEST TIME in the Stampin' Up! year!!!!  AHHHHHH!  And one of the VERY LAST assignments that I have on this year's Artisan team is to share a SNEAK PEEK with you!!!  Yes...it is ALMOST Sale-A-Bration time!!!!  AHHHHH!  How fun is that?!  A fun note...if you are a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator...you can start pre-earning Sale-A-Bration items NOW!  (Dates for the pre-earn are Dec 3rd-Jan 2nd.)  If you aren't a demonstrator yet, Sale-A-Bration begins January 3, 2020 so you can start earning them then!! (A reminder of what this all means.... demonstrators can earn items in the Sale-A-Bration offering early. For every $50 USD or $100 USD you spend, you choose a free item from the Sale-A-Braton brochure that matches the level you spent. Demonstrators can even use the preorder of the January–June mini catalog and purchase items from that catalog or any other current catalog, and earn free Sale-A-Bration products!)

So are you ready for a Sneak Peek?!  Then get ready for this FABULOUS Sale-A-Bration Sneak Peek Blog Hop with Stampin' Up!'s Artisan Design Team!!!  If you just came from Angela's Blog...you are already having a great time!  She's so talented!!! 💖  

The stamp set I get to showcase is called "The Gang's All Meer."  And it's a FUN set filled with cute little meerkats!  BUT...I wanted to show how you how versatile this set can be!  This stamp set has  fun meerkat images, but it also has some darling "supporting" stamps in the set as well.  So I made one card layout and two cards...one using meerkats, and one not!  What do you think?!   


So things I love about these cards:  WATERCOLORING!  I love a good watercolored image!  Both of the cards have the main image embossed with Gold Embossing Powder and then colored in using ink and an Aqua Painter.  Let me show you the specifics on the cactus card first...


Colors: Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Whisper White, Gold
Inks: Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Basic Black, Gold Foil Paper, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
Stamps: The Gang's All Meer
Tools: Stitched Rectangle Dies, Subtle Embossing Folder, Aqua Painter
Accessories: Baker's Twine, Woven Threads Sequin Assortment, White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder


Here are the colors I used for this card:  Mango Melody & Pineapple Punch for the sunset background, Granny Apple Green for the cactus,  Melon Mambo for the cactus flowers, and Crumb Cake for the desert sand.

I love the little touch of gold with both the embossing and the little Gold Foil Sheet strip on the side of the card:



I also love the clean white background of the card front, with a touch of texture with the Subtle Embossing Folder on a cardstock layer.

The meerkat card was made the same way:



Colors: Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Whisper White, Gold
Inks: Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, Crumb Cake, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Basic Black, Gold Foil Paper, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
Stamps: The Gang's All Meer
Tools: Stitched Rectangle Dies, Subtle Embossing Folder, Aqua Painter
Accessories: Baker's Twine, Woven Threads Sequin Assortment, White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder


The colors that are I used here are:  Coastal Cabana for the background, Crumb Cake for the Meerkats, and Granny Apple Green for the grass.  Look how cute their shiny gold touches are also...




I think they are adorable! This is the perfect card to showcase your watercolor talents!  And it's such a blast to do!

This pre-order time is an exclusive benefit for demonstrators.  So if you are a demonstrator, take advantage of it!  If you are not one yet...let's chat about how we can get you signed up!  I would love to help you!



Thank you so much for visiting!  I hope you enjoyed these cards!  Next stop is Aurélie and I am excited for you to see what she did today!
