It’s been an exciting weekend for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world. We have just had Onstage 2017 which is a fun time for demonstrators to get together, all at the same time throughout the world, and we have just seen the next Annual Catalogue! Yes, I have a copy in my hot little hands!! But I’m not sharing it with you just yet. You’ll have to wait until 1 June.
I also got to catch up with some of the CTC Crew in Sydney which was great! Nothing like meeting up in person. Here’s Liz Gross and I. Bronwyn Eastley and I were shopping and ran into Liz!!
So back with the program!! We are casing Easter projects this week.
I was flipping through the Annual Catalogue (gee, I should do that more often) and I came across this cute acorn thank card on page 36.
I decided to case the card at the top. I used the same Sparkle embossing folder with a whisper white cardstock base. Instead of using burlap ribbon, I decided to use a piece of Wild Wasabi cardstock and cut it with the fringe scissors to make some grass. I just love the Basket Bunch stamp set and the matching Basket Builder framelits. The bunnies are just so cute!!
I stamped the bunny, eggs, birds and flowers in memento ink and cut them out with the framelits. I coloured them using the blender pens and So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Marina Mist, Pool Party and Calyspo Coral ink.
To create the sentiment, I used a combination of stamp sets. Happy is from Endless Birthday Wishes and Easter is from Crazy about You stamp set.
I’m hoping my nieces’ like the card as their Easter present will be inside!! Not chocolate but tickets to a concert!! Best.Auntie.Ever
Enjoy our hop this weekend!! And Happy Easter!!

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.

Can you believe that we are almost at the end of July!! Where is this year going!! I’m still waiting for winter to arrive, here in Queensland. It was 28 degrees yesterday and I had on my t-shirt and shorts!! It’s a bit cooler today but still feels like Autumn.
This week we are back casing the Everyday Occasions section of the 2016-2017 Annual catalogue from pages 66-91.
There are so many gorgeous cards to case!! I love the Layering Love stamp set although I haven’t got it yet. I was inspired by the card featuring this set on the top right of the picture.
I decided to use the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set for my card and I didn’t feel it was quite appropriate to make a shaker card like the sample. I embossed the main card with the Sparkle embossing folder in Soft Sky cardstock, then cut out a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals framelits in So Saffron and then attached it to the front of the card. I then cut out the oval on both layers. I then stamped the sentiment in Soft Sky on a separate piece of cardstock and attached it from behind. That way, I could make sure it was centred nicely!!
I then punched a few little flowers and leaves using the Blossom Builder punch and scrunched them up a bit to give some texture and attached them with glue dots. And of course, there are a few of the teeny tiny pearls in the centre of the flowers.
I hope you like my card today!! Please leave me a comment and let me know!! Next on the hop is the lovely Kelly.
Don’t forget you can also join in with our challenges each week. We will select a winner at the start of each month. Click here to link up your project!!
