A warm welcome to stop no. 5 on the Stampin’ Addicts Sale-a-bration Blog Hop!  You have just arrived from Joyce’s  blog where she showed you some fun things to make using the Digital Content CD.

Every stop on this hop is showcasing a different stamp set that you can get for free during Sale-a-bration – yep, you choose one item for free with every $50 in merchandise that you spend!

I am using the stamp set Sweet Summer that you will find on pg 8 of the Sale-a-bration Catalog.  It is a set of 9 featuring beautiful flowers, stems and insects and as I found out when I played with it, it is a very versatile set…so please read on to see my projects and for details of my yummy blog candy…

My first item is very clean and very simple…featuring a cute swirly stem stamp…

I used same-color double layers for both my Espresso base and Vanilla mat – this is a great way to give a very elegant look to a simple card…

I added some little Pearls to my berries and just before the thanks for a cute touch and decided against adding anything else to showcase just what an great look you can get using one stamp from this set and two colors of card stock.

My second item is bold and fun and again uses that cute swirly stem stamp from this set…and this treat is one that shows you how versatile this set can be…

Underneath that gorgeous red sparkly Glimmer Paper that is wrapped a chocolate bar – this paper is featured in the Occasions Mini Catalog and  is a pleasure to work with because ALL of the glitter stays on it – there is none falling off as you cut into it – gotta love that!  And the sparkles are dazzling…

I decided to make this a Valentine treat and so added those hearts hanging from the stem and added even more sparkle with beautiful Rhinestones…cute!

Imagine the possibilities – you could create holiday cards by hanging punched out circles for ornaments…or easter cards by hanging oval eggs…

Want to know more details and see how I wrapped my chocolate bar?  Come back on Monday to find out!

My third item is a treat for kids featuring a cute flowerpot…I think girls will love this and it would make perfect sleepover or party favors…

Do you know what the stem and flower pot are disguising? A Dum Dum lollipop!

My flower stem is disguising the lollipop stick and the flower pot is wrapped around the lollipop – isn’t it cute?   Both the stem and cute flower at the top are stamped with stamps from Sweet Summer and I again added some Pearls to my flower centers…

I added the little leaf and butterfly stamps for a cute finishing touch – want to know how to make this little treat?  Come back on Monday for the details and tutorial!

My last card again uses that cute swirly branch…I just love the versatility of this little stamp and will be using it for years to come…

Another simple card using Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake and this time my stem is standing upright with those beautiful flowers attached…

This flower is another stamp from Sweet Summer and I stamped and cut out my flowers and added them with dimensionals to the stem along with a couple of Pearls…love the Pearls…

I added a sentiment from You’re a Gem and a piece of beautiful Baja Breeze Seam Binding and there is one cute card!

Don’t forget to come back and visit me on Monday for more details, photos and tutorials about my projects…and of course to find out the winner of my blog candy…speaking of which…

Leave me a comment to let me know which item is your favorite and you will be entered into a prize draw – the winner will be chosen by random.org on Monday and one lucky winner will win a roll of beautiful Seam Binding of their choice from the Occasions Mini Catalog!

Thank you for visiting – now you’re off to visit Kim where she will show you some fabulous things that you can make using one of my favorite  Sale-a-bration sets, Bliss…

    What great projects! When I saw this set in the catalog for the first couple of times, I didn’t think much about it but now that I am seeing samples of what you can do with it? I have to have it!

    The friend card is my favorite. I love the colors and how the blossoms are popped up. Beautiful!

  • January 28, 2011 at 8:14 am

    Great projects! My favorite is the little flower pot. I can’t wait to get the details on how you made that. Thanks for sharing. jmniffer

  • January 28, 2011 at 9:02 am

    Very cute projects.

  • January 28, 2011 at 9:34 am

    Great cards! It’s a hard choice between the first and last card, but I’m going to have to go with the last one! Thanks for sharing.

  • January 28, 2011 at 9:56 am

    What sweet projects, Sarah! I’m especially partial to the Friend card–so elegant, in such a soft color scheme

  • January 28, 2011 at 10:03 am

    Holy Cute creations!!! Your style is perfectly in tune with mine. I am in love with the last card. I will be copying this for sure! Thanks!

  • January 28, 2011 at 10:25 am

    I just LOVE all of these projects – you are sooo talented!! The colors of each one is fantastic – thank you for sharing. I definately will be back on Monday to check out more!! thanks

  • January 28, 2011 at 11:30 am

    Thank you for showing so many uses for the swirly stem stamp! Simple and so pretty!

  • January 28, 2011 at 11:38 am

    All of your projects are amazing!! I can’t even pick a favorite. Now I really want this set too :)

  • January 28, 2011 at 12:08 pm

    Sarah, I always adore what you make, and this time is no exception! I wasn’t going to order this set, but now you’ve convinced me! My favorite is the gorgeous Espresso card!

  • January 28, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    I just love the stamp set you used, but the tulip embossing folder really caught my eye! Thanks for sharing your inspiration with us!

  • January 28, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    Favorite project, I’ll have to go with the chocolate & glimmer one!

  • January 28, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    These are all beautiful, cute and elegant, all at once! My favorite–sorry, can’t choose, they’re all irresitable and I’m so glad my Brown-clad friend is bringing a box with Sweet Summer set to me. Thanks for creating and sharing.

  • January 28, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    I love how you combined the rhinestones and pearls with this set! They work so perfectly with it!

  • January 28, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    Very cute. I really like the Flower Pot Dum Dum cover.

  • January 28, 2011 at 1:42 pm

    I LOVE the little bit of bling you used on all of your projects. None of it stands out so much to take over but they accent the projects beautifully.

  • January 28, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    Oh, good grief, how can I choose just one when they are ALL fabulous?! If I have to narrow it down, I’d say it’s even between the Thanks and the Friend cards. That’s the best I can do!

  • January 28, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    Love the hanging hearts on the chocolate, but my favorite is the Friend card — so elegant.

  • January 28, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    Your projects are ALL so cute,it is really hard for me to pick one, BUT if I had to, it would be THE CHOCOLATE CANDY BAR & GLIMMER PAPER !

  • January 28, 2011 at 3:38 pm

    You did an awesome job on all the projects! The Flower pot was just too stinkin cute and the other cards so simple and yet so elegant. I will have to rethink that stamp set because you really showed it’s versatility. Thanks, Penny

  • January 28, 2011 at 3:42 pm

    Well, I certainly can’t choose a favorite but I suppose I favor the first card because it looks fresh and appropriate for so many things! I, too, am taking another look at this set.

  • January 28, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    Sarah they are all lovely projects. But the first one is gorgeous. Clean and simple AND gorgeous.

  • January 28, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    OMG How can one choose? I like the friend card, but fell in love with the red hearts and the glimmer paper. I have to rethink this stamp set. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us.


  • January 28, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    Beautiful! I love them all, but for the season, the hearts hanging from the branch is my fave. Thanks for the great ideas.

  • January 28, 2011 at 6:08 pm

    I love it! This might be the set I choose to get! I’m trying to decide right now!

  • January 28, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    I love that Espresso paper & your card is beautiful!
    You have such great ideas!

  • January 28, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    Wonderful projects! I adore the hanging hearts – so clever

  • January 28, 2011 at 7:01 pm

    Lovely job!! At first glance I didn’t realize what set this was because I soo didn’t like it but wow you made it so much better. The the red card my fav of the hope so far!

  • January 28, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    I love ALL the projects, so cute.

  • January 28, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    These are all adorable Sarah! My fav is a toss up between the espresso one and the chocolate bar. Hmmmm, my favs are coffee and chocolate, imagine that. lol

  • January 28, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    Love them all. So elegant, but my favorite has to be the swirly branch. Love the color combination of Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake.

  • January 28, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    Wow-Great projects! Like them all but think the top one has to be my favorite!!

  • January 28, 2011 at 8:22 pm

    It is hard to pick one but I think the flower pot is my favorite.

  • January 28, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    so glad i happened across this hop-love your ideas for this set!

  • January 28, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    These are all so elegant. Beautifully done Sarah. I love the 1st card.

  • January 28, 2011 at 8:44 pm

    I love the flower pot. I cannot wait to see how to make it on Monday!

  • January 28, 2011 at 9:13 pm

    My fave card…I can’t decide between the love and the friend card!!! I LOVE them both!

  • January 28, 2011 at 9:33 pm

    I think the “friend” card is my favorite. I was not a fan of Baja Breeze but this card has changed my mind. I love it with the Crumb Cake. Thank you for showing those colors together.

  • January 28, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    Sarah, what beautiful projects! OMGosh that first card though has got to be my favorite.

  • January 28, 2011 at 11:17 pm

    The first card is so elegant!! Love all your projects, but the flower and pot lollipop holder is fabulous!

  • January 29, 2011 at 12:32 am

    Love the clean crisp look of the thanks and the friends cards. Thanks for sharing and would love to win!!

  • January 29, 2011 at 1:54 am

    Yikes…pick a fav! Are you kidding I love them all…and will be back for sure to see how they were made…but since you twisted my arm…the last one in Crumb Cake and Baja Breeze makes my heart go pit a pat. Just so delicate. Would make a great wedding card too.

  • January 29, 2011 at 2:06 am

    Wonderful projects, each and every one of them! The flower pot hiding the dum-dum is adorable, but my fav is the very first card.

  • January 29, 2011 at 2:38 am

    WOW, such unique projects. Loving them.

  • January 29, 2011 at 4:10 am

    I love all of these samples for one reason or another. Love the color combination and the card using Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake. Just looks so beautiful together. Also the hearts dangling on the Valentines card how cute. Love the flower pot just too clever. I guess the plain and simple would be in last place but not because I don’t like it just because it is simplier. Makes sense?
    Great Job on all of them.

  • January 29, 2011 at 5:10 am

    Love the flowerpot and Dum Dum lollipop. Just bought a bag of them to make some projects so will try this project for sure.

  • January 29, 2011 at 6:33 am

    I LOVE all your projects! I’m a CAS kind of girl so really enjoy your simple Expresso card.

  • January 29, 2011 at 6:42 am

    It’s too hard to pick one. All of them are perfect. But since I need to pick one, it will be the valentine one. It’s so long. what size is it?
    Changed my mind, I like the flower pot. Oh my, I like the friend one….ok it’s just to hard to pick my favorite. Love to visit your blog.
