I hope you are having a great weekend!! It is a beautiful sunny day here in Mundoolun today. Admittedly, I haven’t really been out in it but given I work in an office with no windows, it’s just nice to see blue sky!! I’ve been up since 3:30am today so I’m feeling a bit weary. I was fortunate to attend the Stampin’ Up! Backstage event for Stampin’ Up! leaders. It was an amazing event, even though it was on-line. I got to network and brain storm with demonstrators from around the world and hear amazing speakers.
Luckily, it finished at 10:30am so I’ve had a chance to have a play in this week’s CTC challenge which is to case the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.
Once again, I didn’t get far into the catalogue before I decided on my card. I made it to page 3!! I do love the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper, it’s just so nice!! I’ve cased the card on the right.
I just got the Christmas to Remember bundle which includes the Christmas to Remember stamp set and the Christmas Pinecone dies and I couldn’t wait to have a play to re-create this card. I started off with selecting the base colour of Evening Evergreen. I then cut out the two large dies, one in Be Dazzling Specialty Paper and one in Evening Evergreen. You need to be careful when poking out the die cut pieces as it is quite detailed and you don’t want to tear the paper. I layered the two pieces by placing glue dots across the cardstock pieces and gently pressing the sparkly piece on top. I added a few more glue dots on spots that were sticking up. I then attached it to the cardstock base in the same way.
For the sentiment, I decided to play with white embossing on the cork specialty paper. I have to say it comes up amazing!! You need to try it!! I then die cut it out using my new favourite labels, Seasonal Labels dies.
This card is so sparkly, I might have to send it to myself!! lol If you love this card too, make sure you check out the product links at the bottom of my post, so that you can purchase it all!
Next up is the lovely Julia.
