CTC167 – Sale-a-bration


I hope you have had a great week!  We’ve had a bit of rain over the last couple of days, which is perfect for guilt free crafting!!

We are back casing the Sale-a-bration catalogue.  Did you know that we have also had a second release of SAB items?  There are three/four new items to earn for free!!  There’s a cute Eclectic Expressions stamp set, a stunning pack of specialty DSP – Springtime Foils, and another level 2 freebie, the Blossoming Basket bundle which includes the Blossoming Basket stamp set and the Basket Weave embossing folder.


I am attempting to be organised this year and get my blogging projects ready a week before I need them so that I don’t have to rush to get it all done by Sunday.  And I was on track this week but I received a parcel on Friday which included the Blossoming Basket bundle and I had to add an extra project to my blog!

Firstly, I decided to case one of the cards on the cover the 2nd release SAB catalogue that features the gorgeous Springtime Foils Specialty DSP.  This DSP has to be one of my favourites!  It features gold foil, rose gold foil and silver foil.  Bling it on!!!


Isn’t this card just so lovely?  I am also a fan of the Celebrate You thinlits (so glad that these are carrying through to the next Annual Catalogue). Sadly I didn’t have the DSP at the time I made the card, so I used the Petal Palette stamp set and embossed the flowers in copper embossing powder, on thick whisper white cardstock and used the Petals and More thinlits to cut them all out.  I added a banner of Powder Pink and cut the Amazing thinlit in Pear Pizzazz.  I coloured one bunch of flowers using my aqua painter and added a swirl of copper foil.

I added a little banner for the sentiment from the SAB Amazing You stamp set.


So for my second card, I cased the yellow card but I used Sweet Sugarplum instead.


I love the Dynamic Textured Impressions embossing folders! The detail is so amazing!! I spritzed a piece of thick whisper white cardstock and ran it through my bigshot and went wow!!

I stamped the basket twice and coloured the base with crumb cake and cut it out.  I then coloured the flowers in Sweet Sugarplum and Old Olive.  I added a butterfly in Peekaboo Peach.  I also added a bit of stella because, well, I love it!  Oh and I used a Daffodil Delight marker to colour the centre of the flowers.

I added the ticket tear border punch along the edge.  I used the Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set for the sentiment.


If you love these items, you can earn them for free by placing a $90 or more order from my online store, here.

Next up on the hop is the lovely Julia!
