Pinkies Sale-a-Bration 2015 Blog Hop - A Big Day Magic Slider Card from Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Sarah Poulton

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using new Stampin' Up!® products that you can earn free during Sale-a-Bration. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

Thank you for joining me today from Cobi's blog. You've hopped here to the Isle of Wight for my little corner of Sale-A-Bration creativity. Sale-A-Bration is my absolute favourite time of the Stampin' Up! year. Who doesn't love a freebie as a reward for buying gorgeous crafting products?

I chose to feature the Big Day stamp set (along with the ribbons/buttons from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack which is another freebie you can earn during the Sale-A-Bration sales period). I created this magic slider card and matching gift box perfect for fitting in a little choccie or candle gift.

I used the colours of the Accessory pack as my theme- Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana. 

I created my slider element by creating a 2" wide Whisper White tag with my Scallop Tag Topper Punch. I then created a matching layered tag using a Window Sheet to layer over the top. I stamped my cake and greeting on to the Whisper White tag using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to exactly match the base image over the top on the Window Sheet tag (thus giving the magic effect when you pull the tag from the card).

I coloured my Whisper White tag with my Blendabilities Markers in Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral (don't forget you can also choose a colour set of Blendabilities as your Sale-A-Bration freebie if you want to start building your colouring collection).

And here is the little mini matching box I created using my Gift Box Punch Board. I used a 6" square piece of Crushed Curry cardstock which I then stamped with the matching Big Day stamps and coloured again with Blendabilities. I then tied with ribbons from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack.

Thank you for joining me today for my little bit of Sale-A-Bration creativity. Hop on to Eveline's blog to continue the fun.
