Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! We’re showcasing our favorite new products from 2020 Sale-A-Bration brochure. 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 full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Happy New Year stampers!  I am starting the new year with a Celebration cake.  Who doesn’t love cake?  I tried to keep the card fairly simple and something you would all want to use again and again when a cake is needed.



My celebration cake is created with the Happy Birthday To You Sale-A-Bration stamp set.  When I first saw this cake, I thought it would be beautiful for showers and weddings.  I never seem to have that kind of set on hand.  But after playing it with and going for the more simple approach, I believe it can be used as any celebration that requires cake.  Who wouldn’t want all of those roses to eat?? 🙂

It does not show well in the photo but the flowers have Wink Of Stella on the petals.  I stamped the cake and sentiment in Smoky Slate Ink.  I did not want a dark cake.  I was planning on a soft look with all the colors.

I used a variety of the Stampin’ Blends to color the cake and flowers.  I outlined the cake definition lines and shaded the cake stand.  I debated on fussy cutting a flower and layering it on the cake.  But my plan all along was a pretty card that would not be too time consuming to make.  I look at a lot of the stamps and make my choices based on that.  All of the colors are listed in the supply list at the bottom of the page.

The ribbon is a member of the Parisian Blossoms Suite. The suite is one of the “I want it all” suites of products.  It is the Petal Pink Metallic Edge Ribbon.  I chose to just frame with the ribbon instead of overpowering the cake with a bow.

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!
