OSAT Blog Hop | Sale-a-brate the Occasion

Hello and thanks for stopping by today! Today is the January OSAT Blog Hop where we are creating projects with Sale-a-bration and Occasions catalog products. Below are links to all of the blogs in this Hop, showing more ideas. I have chosen to create a card and matching gift bag with Party Pandas stamp set (Sale-a-bration) and the Amazing Congratulations stamp set (Occasions).

Party Pandas stamp set

Last year it was the Hey, Chick! stamp set that was much sought after and all the rage. This year the pandas are taking over. I was not really a fan of the chickens but these pandas are adorable! Simple stamping will get the job done with these party animals. I stamped and then fussy cut in this project, to give them a true focal point in each project. The panda is holding a simple banner created by punching little strips from the Everyday Label Punch, folding the strip over the twine and adhering with a glue dot.

The greeting is from a new stamp set called Amazing Congratulations. I hope you check it out, as I haven’t worked with anything like it. There is a large open image word stamp (I have used in my project) and several stamps that fill in the words. Kind of hard to describe, be sure to have a look (click on the product link to see it in full). The image is stamped in Island Indigo and heat set with clear embossing powder. This holds in the watercoloring I did with stamp pads.

Matching gift bag

Decorating a Gold Striped Gift Bag is too easy. Two die cut squares, a few fussy cut pandas with Stampin Blends highlights, some paper ribbon and shazaam! It’s a done deal.

  1. Having the card and gift bag match…very popular with people. The pandas will be a hit with recipients, especially children.

  2. Very cute card and gift bag. Where did you get the paper ribbon? So disappointed when Stampin Up said it wasn’t going to be available.
