I hope you are enjoying all the amazing Sale-a-bration stamps and products! Especially given the fact that they are all free!!
We are caseing the Sale-a-bration catalogue again this week, pages 12-15.
I was inspired by the card in the middle on page 12, featuring the Tasty Trucks stamp set.
I decided to use the new Sale-a-bration stamp set, Make a Medallion as I hadn’t inked it up yet. I also wanted to use the Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper (which is also a new SAB freebie). I went to the My Creak Ink site and put in Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White and it came up a few suggestions. I decided to go with Sweet Sugarplum, Mint Macaron, Whisper White and Island Indigo.
I used the same Sparkle embossing folder as it’s cute. I then stamped the medallions using Island Indigo and Mint Macaron and the sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum. To cut out the circles, I used the Layering Circle famelits. I just love the scallops!!
Here’s a close up of the circle. It’s so sparkly!!
Next up on the hop is the lovely Julia.
Please come and join our Facebook Challenge Group where you can join us and share your projects from the same section of the catalogue.
Hope you have a great week,
Stampin’ Up! Product List
Seeing as I have time to play in my craft room this week, I decided to try out a few challenges. You may have noticed that I like to try the Mojo Monday sketches. I thought this week’s sketch was interesting and decided to give it a go.
Here is the Sketch. And here is the link to the challenge.
I’ve recently purchased the Pretty Petals DSP stack and it’s so pretty. I decided to base my colours around this stack, so I went with a base of Mint Macaron and then a layer of Calypso Coral before the DSP. I cut out a silver glimmer paper circle using two circle framelits. Have I ever mentioned that I love bling? No? Well I love it!!! lol.
I think this hostess set, A Whole Lot of Lovely, is my favourite ever. And this Thank You stamp is just lovely. I used my Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral markers to ink it up. To create the banner, I just used the reverse side of the DSP. Don’t you just love that!!
Here’s my card.
If you like it, please leave me a comment below.
Can you believe that we are more than halfway through casing the catalogue!! We are up to the Thanks section this week. There are so many great cards and projects to case in this section. It was hard to decide which one to make to share this week!!
I went with an old favourite stamp set (well, it’s not that old!!), the Six Sided sampler. I am a sucker for stamps which have matching punches or framelits. Anything to avoid cutting out myself!!!
The project that I am casing is from page 145 of the AU/NZ catalogue.
I wanted to do different colours to the catalogue so I got out my trusty Colour Coach to pick a combo. I wanted to use Tangelo Twist, a new in-colour which I haven’t used very much yet.
I ended up going with Tangelo Twist, Island Indigo and Sahara Sand.
To do the twine, I just cut a long piece and scrunched it up in my hand and stuck it on the card with some dimensionals. Easy Peasy!!!!
And for the bling, I used some champagne Glimmer paper. Looks so sparkly!!
Please let me know what you think!!
So make sure you join in with the Challenge at http://www.caseingthecatty.blogspot.com.au
You can directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combo, embellishment, just to name a few examples, as a springboard for your own creations. It doesn’t even have to be about scrapbooking, journaling or Project Life. For example, you can use a sketch idea for a card or 3D item.
* Create a new project for the current challenge (no back linking)
* Mention CTC Challenges in your blog post and link back to the challenge blog so others can join in on the fun.
* Let us know what project you CASED and make reference to the page of your country’s catalogue where you got your inspiration.
* SUO products (retired or current) may be used in your projects for CTC Challenges.
Hope you can join in!!
