Friendly Hello from Sale-a-Bration 2022

I always look forward to the challenge of Monday Mystery Stamping and January 17th’s version was no different.  I like to challenge myself to use a stamp set and Designer Series Paper that I haven’t yet used or that I’m still not quite comfortable with.  Yesterday I used the Friendly Hello stamp set and accompanying Friendly Hello 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper bundle from the January-February 2022 Sale-a-Bration brochure.  Yes, it’s the ‘biggie’ offering available for your choosing when you make a $100 purchase of regular product from a current Stampin’ Up! catalog.  Whew!  Lots of words.  Bottom line, I selected this bundle when I resupplied myself with card stock and other odds and ends like a new stamp set or two and some accessories.

This is my fun and spring-y card created to send to a friend to bring a smile when she finds it in her mailbox.  Don’t you love getting a surprise in your mailbox?

SAB 2022 Hello Friend Bundle


Here are the products used for today’s card:

Paper Snips


To recreate the layout of today’s card:

SAB 2022 Hello Friend Bundle
Cut out 6 strips of different patterns of Designer Series Paper, 1″ x 6″.


Cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Basic White card stock and lightly apply Multipurpose Liquid Glue all over it.

SAB 2022 Hello Friend Bundle
Be gentle but thorough with the application of the glue.


SAB 2022 Hello Friend Bundle
Lay the first strip at an angle starting at the top of the prepared Basic White card stock.


SAB 2022 Hello Friend Bundle
Follow with the remaining strips, being sure to butt up each edge snugly to the preceding strip.


Flip the piece over and trim off the overhanging strip pieces using either Paper Snips or a Stampin’ Trimmer.

You’ll need one more piece of contrasting Designer Series Paper, this one 1″ x 5-1/4″ which you’ll attach to the left side of your layered piece before attaching it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Check the very first card above for placement of that piece.  It’s pretty clean and easy.


SAB 2022 Hello Friend Bundle
On a scrap of Basic White card stock, stamp your greeting.  – Die cut the greeting using the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss  Machine.  – Using a Stamping Sponge (that has been cut in wedges), gently sponge the edges of the label with a coordinating color of your card.  I used Fresh Freesia classic ink.


SAB 2022 Hello Friend Bundle
Fold a 3″ piece of ribbon (I used Fresh Fressia again) in half and place a Mini Glue Dot at the fold to hold the position.  Attach the ribbon to the back side of the label with another Mini Glue Dot.  Affix 3 Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back side of the label and then attach it to the card front.


SAB 2022 Hello Friend Bundle
Add a little Brushed Brass Butterfly to the greeting label layer.

To be honest, I messed up with the measurement of my Basic White layer and it was a bit too small.  Remedy: Cut a layer of coordinating card stock (Fresh Freesia again) to the proper 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Then attach the layered Basic White decorated layer.  I went a step further before attaching the decorated layer and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Gingham Embossing Folder.  It added a nice little ‘pop’ to the layer.
