I Miss Your Face with THREE Sale-a-Bration Products

We went for a walk in the park yesterday, staying an appropriate distance from everyone else who was there. I’m coping well with the current state of things, but I mostly miss being around my friends and family. I’m FaceTiming more than ever, but it doesn’t replace that face-to-face interactions with the people we love. “I miss your face” says a lot in this new world.

Sale-a-Bration ends tomorrow. If you want to earn some of the amazing products offered during this year’s 3-month sales event, now’s the time! To celebrate Sale-a-Bration, I made a simple, layered card with THREE Sale-a-Bration items. Can you name all three? Here’s my card:

Tags in Bloom, The Gang's All Meer, Woven Threads Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up!, Brian KingTips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Three Sale-a-Bration Products. Not only does my card feature three Sale-a-Bration products, but the items come from each of the three Sale-a-Bration product releases. The sweet fella on the front of my card is from The Gang’s All Meer stamp set. This stamp set can be selected with a $50 order (until tomorrow). Here’s a look: The Gang's All Meer, Stampin Up! 152294The sentiment is from the Tags in Bloom, one of the selections in Stampin’ Up!’s second round of products. This stamp set, which coordinates with the Label me Lovely Punch and Label me Fancy Punch, can be selected with a $100 order (until tomorrow). Here’s a look at the Tags in Bloom stamp set: Tags in Bloom, Stampin Up! 152292Three patterns of the Woven Heirlooms Designer Series Paper build a background for this card – don’t you love it?! This pack of papers from Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Annual Catalog is part of Stampin’ Up!’s third release of Sale-a-Bration items and can be selected with a $50 order (until tomorrow). Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper: Woven Threads Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up! 149497The Sale-a-Bration product code for the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper is 155883.

  • Sweet as can be. The Rococo Rose and Sahara Sand patterns from Woven Threads Designer Series Paper created a sweet backdrop for this card, but it’s the adorable meercat who steals my heart. I stamped him on a small scrap of the Sahara Sand page (it already has such beautiful texture) and then snipped him out. Tags in Bloom, The Gang's All Meer, Woven Threads Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up!, Brian KingI added a small heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies to his hands. Sweet, huh?
  • Soft, Sweet Color Combination. I love the softness of this card. It’s the colors from the Woven Threads Designer Series that inform the color scheme on this card. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have likely grabbed Rococo Rose from my shelf – shame on me. If you like this mix of Whisper White, Sahara Sand and Rococo Rose as much as I do, please save this for future reference:Stampin Up!

  1. Oh Brian what a sweet card. Your added heart is perfect and speaks volumes. This sentiment is absolutely great for this time we are experiencing. Glad you and your family continue to be fine!

    • Thank you so much, Katrina! I seem to be adding hearts to everything these days – so happy you like what it adds. ♥ Much love to you and your family.

  2. Who’d have known that “I miss your face” would be so needed in 2020. I like the meerkat with that sentiment too.

    • I don’t think this was on anybody’s wishlist for the new year. This sentiment is perfectly timed and so needed. All the best to you and your family! ♥ Thanks!

  3. Adorable!

  4. Adorable paring of critter and sentiment!

  5. What a sweet little “dude” and perfect way to share the love!

  6. SO appropriate!!! (and “wicked cute!”)

  7. My FAVORITE saying in this SAB set.

  8. That is a sentiment I totally missed. You are so right, perfect for now. We had a cocktail party yesterday with our neighbors, and stood 6 ft apart talking in the cold with big coats etc. Crazy times. Love that you combined 3 sale a bration items in one card.

    • Thanks, Susan! I didn’t realize I had combined three until I was done. Such fun! We’ve gone for walks but haven’t had any face-to-face interactions (except waving to our neighbors from the front porch). All the best to you and yours!

  9. It’s great how you are able to find stamps that I have overlooked. This is a very sweet card with the heart and sentiment. Enjoy your day!

  10. Perfect card for these crazy days! Stay well, my friend.

  11. I think I would like to send about 80 of those cards out. Just the absolute perfect card for these times. Thanks Brian.

    • Thank you so much, Grace! I’m so happy you love it – but snipping this little guy out 80 times would make your hands numb. Maybe you could get your husband to help with the snipping? ♥

  12. Such a sweet card! While I wouldn’t have thought of that DSP with the Meerkats set, it works perfect!

    • Thanks, Susan! I originally grabbed this Sahara Sand paper to stamp and cut him out. Then I challenged myself to use the other patterns in this paper. 🙂 Glad you like it.

  13. I am going to be a copy cat and make a few cards to share with my loved ones. You come up with the best ideas Brian. Your blog is my happy place. Stay safe my friend.

    • Thank you so much, my friend. I’m happy to keep things fun and uplifting here in blogland. ♥ Your loved ones will certainly appreciate this card.

  14. AW! How adorable.

  15. Awwwww, I love him my friend , so Darn cute ♥️♥️♥️♥️
    He made me happy ♥️
