Let’s Bee Happy it is Sale-A-Bration Time

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 the2020 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.

One of my favorite things about Stampin’UP! is their coordination of products.  And I especially love this time of year when I, and you, can earn free products.  But when the free product also coordinates with other products, I’m over the moon happy.  That’s the case with the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper available for free with a $50 order of product (before Shipping and Tax). It was designed to coordinate with the Honey Bee Bundle.  There are even images that some of the dies crop out perfectly. Check out this video from Stampin Up.

One side of the paper is Black and White images.  The other side has Gold Foil accents.  That’s what makes it a Specialty paper.  The black and white side is made for coloring or using as-is.  I chose to use a sponge brayer with So Saffron ink and color the paper just a bit.  I used So Saffron  Dark Stampin Blend to color in the bees and the honey hives.  You can really see the difference the brayer made in this picture of before and after.

About Lynn

Thanks for visiting my Site. My name is Lynn Kolcun and I'm a Stampin Up Demonstrator. I love being creative with paper and ink, learning new techniques and sharing my craft with you.


  1. Gorgeous card! I love this DSP and how you used a braver to add color.

  2. I love all the details of your card. The slight coloring of the DSP was perfect blending with the other elements. A win!

  3. Love the honey bees, great job!

  4. Lynn, you love the bees too! Great card!

  5. I am over the moon happy with this bundle myself, Lynn! Got it today and cannot wait to play! Thanks for the sponging tip… I like the black and white so much I’d have never considered it! But flexibility is key!!

  6. Great card! I love how you added vellum to the larger bee! Brilliant!

  7. I love how you brayered on some extra color. This is such a beautiful card!

  8. Love this pretty card! The bundle is on my list to be ordered next (trying to wait till the end of the month but you are making it so hard). Those bees are just so darn cute!

  9. Love the added touch of color. Such a pretty card!

  10. I am also “over the moon happy” about all the coordination going on in the SAB and Mini catalogs!
