Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team - Sale-a-Bration Coordination 2

Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Sale-A-Bration Coordination Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! I'm so excited to be sharing a few projects using some stunning new Sale-A-Bration coordinating products! For a limited time (March 1st-31st) you can get your hands on these exclusive products, so grab yours now so you can start planning your classes!
Our creative team of designers are bringing you inspiration and a close-up of all of the new goodies that will be available for this promotion, so get comfortable and have a ton of fun hopping along with us. You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Kaylee Van Es' Blog. I just LOVE what she has created!

Today, I will be showcasing the So Hoppy Stamp Set, along with the brand new coordinating Hop Around Framelits Dies (150073). Here's a look at the So Hoppy Set if you haven't seen it yet. 

So Hoppy Together Cling Stamp Set

How stinking cute are these sweet little frogs?! And the dies that coordinate make this set even more amazing! Not only do they cut out all of the images in this set(including the tiny little bugs), making it so easy for all levels of crafters, but there are additional dies like a water lily blossom and a lily pad in this set. You can see one of them showcased in the treat box below.

I wanted to make the my pillow box match the color scheme I was going for so I took my Granny Apple Green Ink Pad and used my Sponge Brayer to color my Kraft Pillow Box green. I also made a lily pad out of Granny Apple Green Cardstock. I crumpled it up a bit to add a bit of texture and layered two water lily flowers together for more dimension.

 I also wanted to have my frog as if he was popping off my box and I thought the image of the one on the unicycle would be perfect. Even if your only using part of the stamped image you can still use the dies to cut out most of the image.

Here's how you do it: 
  1. Stamp your image. 
  2. Color your image (I used the Granny Apple Green Blends Combo Pack).
  3. Line up the die and die cut the image out.
  4. Cut away any unwanted parts of your image.  

I like to do this because it cuts (pun unintended lol) down on any extra fussy cutting. Though I really don't mind it every now and again. 

You can also mask off the parts you don't want stamped before you stamp it, die cut the entire image and then cut away the unwanted part. Either way achieves the same goal. Here's one last close-up of the details in this fun little pillow box:
