Blog Hop: Sale-A-Bration Inspiration from the Be Inspired Team

Hello everyone, welcome to my website. My name is Sarah Berry and I’m a demonstrator based in Morecambe, Lancashire, UK. I’m so thrilled to be invited onto the Be Inspired Design Team. We’ll be forming blog hops every two weeks, on a Thursday. So do check back to one of our blogs to start hopping on Thursday 8th February 2017.

Never miss a Be Inspired Blog Hop – If you’d like to receive a notification about our next hop, you can sign up for an email here –>

For our first hop together we’ll be sharing some Sale-A-Bration inspiration. If you’re continuing to hop around, you’ll have arrived from Kimberly Van Diepen, to continue around simply use the next blog button to continue onto the next team member.

The ‘Hey, Chick’ stamp set so amusing, how can you not need this set in your life? I love a bit of colouring in, which I’ve done here on one of the hens using Stampin’ Up!’s new Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen. I’m so impressed with these new Watercolour Pencils, it’s so lovely to add colour to your stamped images that’s more subtle, but also you can control very easily. I added sections of colour and brushed over with my Blender Pen. You can add as much colour to the image as you’d like, just give the Blender Pen solution a couple of seconds to dry into the cardstock.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today, if you live in the UK, France, Germany, Holland or Austria you can purchase any of these items I used today via the supplies list below. Thank you very much for visiting you’re now off to see the super talented Artisan Design Member, Louise Sharp!

    Sweet as sweet can be – just like you! I love the distressed edges and your perfect bow.
    Moving away from your card (even though it’s eggstravagant and all) – your photography is eggceptional! The little egg on the nest – love it! xo
