This week at Caseing the Catty, we are back sharing our favourites from the Sale-a-bration catalogue.

Did you know if you spend $90 on products from either the Annual catalogue or the Occasions catalogue, you can earn any of the products in the Sale-a-bration catalogue for free?  Isn’t that fabulous!!

Did you know that you can get a Project Life card collection for free?  It’s the Memories in the Marking Project Life Specialty card collection and it’s gorgeous!  You get 30 specialty cards that supplement our other Project Life collections.  There are 10 4″ x 6″ cards and 20 3″ x 4″ cards.  And of these cards, there are 15 overlays and 15 emboss resist cards!!!

Whilst these cards are great for using with Project Life, they are also good for making quick and easy cards.

So for my first card, I used a 4″ x 6″ black and white overlay.  Now remember it’s a bigger size than our usual card size, so keep that in mind when cutting your cardstock.  Ask me how I know!!  lol.

I put a piece of white underneath the overlay and then created my ice creams on a separate piece of cardstock and cut them out.  Aren’t the honeycomb embellishments to die for?  They are so cute!  I stamped the sentiment very carefully on the overlay in Staz-on ink and put it aside to dry for a while so it didn’t get smudged.

For my next card, I used one of the smaller 3″ x 4″ overlays and I added a piece of white cardstock underneath again.  I then used another SAB stamp set, What I love, for the sentiment.  A little bunch of flowers in the corner and it’s all done!!

For my last card, I used one of the emboss resist 4″ x 6″ pieces.  I carefully coloured each section with a sponge dauber.

I used the SAB Perfect Pairings stamp set for the sentiment and did a little paper piercing around the oval for an extra bit of detail.  A silver bow and again, another quick card.

A new challenge at The Colour Tree

My lovely friend Brownyn Eastley is starting a new challenge on her blog, addINKtive Designs, and I thought I might give it a try!!

I thought this was going to be easy but it took a little while to come up with a card. I decided to go nice and simple and create a baby card using the cute little bird from the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set (which you can get for free during Sale-a-bration). I stamped the bird on a scrap piece of thick whisper white cardstock, which works nicely with a little bit of watercolouring, and cut him out. I then used the new honeycomb embellishments and spritz a white one with So Saffron. I may have looked like I had a jaundice hand for the rest of the day!!

I just love the seam binding ribbons and I had picked up the Early Espresso one in the Year End sale in December so I thought it would make a great base for my little bird to sit on.

For my sentiment, I used a label from the Project Life Cards & Labels framelits and tucked in under the bird. I also punched a tiny heart from the Confetti Stars border punch.

Here’s a close up.

CTC15 – We’re back!!!

I’m so excited to be back sharing our projects at Caseing the Catty!!

And what great new catalogues that we have to share!! If you haven’t received a copy of the new Occasions catalogue or the Sale-a-bration one, please let me know and I’ll send one out to you.

Our first challenge of the year is to be inspired by a stamped project from the SAB Catalogue and use a SAB stamp set.

As you may know, I kinda like to use my blendabilities!! I received the A Happy Thing stamp set featuring a cute bird, during the pre-order period for demos. It’s not a set I would normally choose but I knew it would be good for using my blendies with. Did you know you can also earn blendabilities for free? Just by ordering $90 worth of product, you can choose a set for free!! I might be getting a few more sets before the end of SAB!! hehe

So I was inspired by the cute card on page 18 of the AU/NZ Sale-a-bration catalogue.

ctc 15 sab

I decided to do a normal size card rather than the square, just for something different. I also didn’t do the splats as I didn’t want to make a mess!! I used the Deco Labels framelits as I love this shape and I forget to use it. So I coloured my birdie using the new Bermuda Bay blendies and Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler. I also used one of the brown’s in the skin colour set for the branch.

ctc15a

You may notice the border around the cut out shape. I used the lightest daffodil delight blendie to colour the edge left by the framelit. I think it adds a nice subtle look. Like the sample in the catalogue, I used the Love Life stamp to create the background on the card. To make the banner, I just stamped the image using Baked Brown Sugar ink and cut it out using my trimmer and paper snips. I then put a strip of new Bermuda bay sequins underneath!! These are soooo pretty!! You NEEEEEDDD some!!

I hope you like it!!

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.

Guidelines

* 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!!

Stampin’ Up! products used:

It’s all free!

I’ve used lots of SAB freebies on my cards today!!  Remember for every $90 you spend on fabulous new products, you can choose 1 item from the Sale-a-bration catalogue.  I’m not sure if I should confess how many freebies I have received cos then you can work out how much I spent!!!  (eeekk!!) Just don’t tell my husband!!

So on page 25 of the Occasions catalogue, I was excited to see the Chalk Ink pads and chalk board paper.  I’ve been wanting to try this technique for a while.  You can get 3 lovely colours to play with:  Aquamarine, Rose Coral and Yellow Citrus.

So I wanted to try them all out. On my first sample, I have used Aquamarine and Yellow Citrus. They aren’t as bright as I had expected but it still looks lovely.

So I had an accident when I when I made the next sample (which I had actually made first). I stamped the top half in Rose Coral and then stamped the sentiment on the bottom half only to discover that I had mounted the clear sticker upside down on the stamp!! NNOOOOO!!!! So I cut off that bit and I think I like this one better!!

On both cards, I have used the Big Day Stamp set, Best Year Ever Designer Series paper from the SAB catty and also the buttons from the Best Year Ever accessory pack.

Let me know what you think!!

Happy SAB Stamping!

25 February 2014 – Is it a box or is it a card?

Now that is the question!! I’ve seen lots of Card in a Boxes on Pinterest and Facebook and it was time I jumped on the band wagon!!

I found a great tutorial by Tanya Bell, check out her blog here, and I was on my way. Once you get the cutting and scoring done, it’s up to you how you decorate it.

I love the Sale-a-bration paper, Sweet Sorbet (well all of it except the black print, yucko!!) so it was perfect for this card. I also used the matching SAB stamp set, Petal Parade.

We made this at Stamp club this weekend and the ladies loved it, except for cutting out the petals!! Not my favourite part, either!! Especially when I made up the extras and had to cut out 12 petals!!
