IHP May DT Challenge – and a SALE!

This is a jam-packed post today, folks! Make sure you read all the way through or you might miss something really good.

First, today is our May i {heart} papers Design Team Challenge. This month we are all using stamps from Paper Smooches.

IHP0512-bear-hugsI used a cute new set called Happy Camper. Now, I’m so NOT a camper, although I did try it a few times many years ago. Nope, I’ll take a comfy hotel bed and room service over a sleeping bag on the ground and canned beans any old day! But as you can see, there are some really cute things you can do with this set that don’t relate to camping at all. I colored the bear with Copic markers E25 and E27, and used one of them (can’t remember which) to airbrush the bling to match.

I also used some of the Konnichiwa paper from Basic Grey. As you can see, there are some nice, non-flowery papers in that pad. I think this card could even be considered masculine – is that too much of a stretch?

Now, you’ll definitely want to jump on this little piece of news: IHP is having their Spring Cleaning Sale! Beginning today, May 15th through May 19th. Save up to 50% on selected items and as always, free US shipping with your $60 order!

All stamps 15% off! Spellbinders 20% off! Alterables 25% off! Inks (Sorry, Copics are excluded due to the manufacturer's strict pricing rules) 10% off! 12x12 Collection Packs 15% off! 6x6 and 8x8 pads 10% off! Embossing folders 30% off! And much more!

PLUS! Have you heard about IHP's new rewards from the {heart} referral rewards program? If you love IHP and are looking for another reason to spread the word to your friends, you’ll now be rewarded for doing just that! With our new rewards from the {heart}, simply refer a new customer and earn 10% of their first order placed in the form of a gift certificate.

Here are the nitty-gritty details: they must list you at time of checkout; rewards are not valid for any past sales and are only valid for their first order -- but you can refer as many people as you like! There is no limit to the rewards you can earn. We appreciate that you love IHP and want to give back when you share the love. Enjoy, and thanks!

I just love this little bear...and doesn't he look dapper on these great natural background papers. I think we share a love for comfort camping...LOL No bugs, a soft bed - yep, that's the only way to go! =)

How about glamping? (It's a real thing...I heard a report about it.) I like your bear and I'd like to see one while glamping. :)

Lori said...

Love your velvety-looking bear! And, I'm totally with you--no camping for me!

Gretchen said...

I'm not a camper either! My husband takes our boys with the boy scouts so I get to stay home in a nice warm, dry comfy bed!
Love your bear card too!
