Paper Crafting Blog Hop – January 2024

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! This month’s theme is “Sale-A-Bration” or as I like to call it – the happiest time of the year as it translates into free fun products!

The Sale-A-Bration stamp set that I have chosen is the Watercolor Watermelon stamp set. My first thought was do I need watermelons? Then I started playing with the stamp set….
This card also uses the Heartfelt Hellos stamp set for the sentiment

When I made this card, I remembered the Raindrops embossing folder and thought that would look like watermelon pips in the background. I saw that Sabrina Kowalski (a French demonstrator that I unfortunately couldn’t find a blog or Facebook group for) had posted a picture where she used the stamp set to make a pizza. I had to give that a try:

Do you prefer the watermelon or the pizza alternative?

  1. Fun card Tracy. I noticed the raindrop texture and watermelon seed combo immediately. The pizza option is very clever, especially when paired with the greeting Let’s Get Together!

  2. I totally love them both!!! And I’d love to CASE them both!!! They are fantastic and I agree with you – why do I need watermelons!! But now, I want to make your cards!

  3. As a pizzeria owner, you caught my attention with this fabulous card. I didn’t think I needed a watermelon stamp set either but now I see pizzas and pies and more possibilities.
