Matt and I were out shopping for a new refrigerator and were drawn to a Black Stainless Steel finish, which has a cool matte, metallic finish. We may still settle for regular stainless and couldn’t decide BUT when we came home, my Stampin’ Up box had arrived with my pre-order for the new Sale a Bration freebies!

I immediately started to brayer, sponge and color this paper because it was so pretty!   I used Memento Black and a paper towel for some resisting:

The paper is called Springtime Foils, it’s GORGEOUS and will be available on Feb 16th as part of the 2nd release for Sale A Bration.   (there are 4 new products and this paper is free with a $50 order) It’s 12×12 and 3 sheets of each design.  I’ll be able to post the brochure PDF and item numbers when they are available to order Feb 16th.

If you want to see a sneak peek of the new Sale a Bration freebies available Feb 16th and how I altered the paper,  watch my video below!

so you can see where I got my inspiration….I still had that black stainless on my mind!

I looked around for something that would compliment my new black steel paper and saw the peacock, which is also a Sale-a-Bation freebie.   Now before you get after me for a black and gray peacock instead of a colorful one, they do exist!   (I know Cindy Brumbaugh will want proof so here it is:)

He sure is pretty!

The gold foil paper really pics up the bits of gold in the paper.

Here is a video from Shannon West at the Stampin’ Up home office showing the new Basket Bundle set that is free with a $100 order:

          (The basket weave embossing folder will also be available in the upcoming Annual catalog in June but until the end of March, you can get it free along with the stamp set with a $100 order!)

By the way, if you reserved a Stamparatus with me, those will be ready to finalize soon!  You can earn the new Sale a Bration freebies with that, also!

Orders over 250.00 earn an EXTRA $25 free on top of SAB freebies and host rewards

If you decide to sign up as a demonstrator (hobby discount shopper or business, all are welcome!) you get TWO extra stamp sets in your starter kit, any price!  And SU gives you free shipping on it all!

Off to watch the BIG game today!  I hope you all find time to enjoy the day and find some time to stamp, too!
