CTC307 – Sale-a-bration

Can you believe that we are at the end of February already? I can’t wait for the weather to get a bit cooler, it’s been so humid the last couple of days!

We are at the end of Sale-a-bration but we are doing one last hop to showcase the great freebies you can receive. As you may know, Sale-a-bration is only running for 2 months now but it will be back in July with a different range of goodies.

I noticed this cute card on page 10 which shows off the gorgeous designer series papers in the SAB catalogue.

There are four great packs of designer series paper in the latest Sale-a-bration catalogue. Starting with the Oh So Ombre DSP, I added a piece of Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, stamped a sentiment from the Punch Party stamp set (SAB hostess set) and punched out using the Label Me Fancy punch.

Next is the Paper Blooms DSP. I used a piece of Fine Art Ribbon and the sentiment is from Approaching Perfection SAB stamp set.

Next up is the Flower & Field DSP, which I paired with a sentiment from the Punch Party stamp set and the Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

Last but not least, is the super cute Berry Delightful DSP. This would have to be my very favourite paper from this batch. I’ve used the scalloped Tulle Ribbon and the matching Berry Blessings stamp set. As the sentiment was a bit longer, I used the Timeless Label stamp set.

Here’s a look at them together.

You have until the end of today (Sunday 28 February) to earn your freebies. Spend $90 in any of our amazing catalogues and you can choose from any of the goodies in the Sale-a-bration. (There are a couple of items that you need to spend $180 to receive).

Next up is the lovely Sandra all the way in New Zealand.

We would love to see your creations so please share over on at our Facebook group.

CTC306 – Bring the Bling

I hope you have had a great week! I went to a craft show yesterday for the first time in a year. It was so nice to see lots of crafty things! I may have made a few purchases!!

This week we are bringing the bling!! We are casing a glitter/sparkly project from either catalogue. If you find it glittery or sparkly, you can case it!!

I decided to case the card on page 20 of the January-June Mini Catalogue, which features the Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Actetate. I used a piece of the free Sale-a-bration Paper Blooms DSP for the background of the card.

I’ve just purchased the Wrapped Bouquet bundle which includes the Wrapped Bouquet stamp set and the Wrapped Flowers dies, so I used this as my feature flowers. I actually used the flowers that were not attached to the wrapper and then stamped just the wrapper as I wanted the bigger bunch of flowers. I coloured the flowers using Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue, Rococo Rose and Daffodil Delight blends and of course, I added Wink of Stella over all the flowers. I added a bow made from the Fine Art Ribbon.

Next up is the lovely Julia.

We would love to see your creation where you bring the bling, so please share it over on at our Facebook group.

CTC305 – Casing the Donkey

I hope you have had a great week! I had my stamp class yesterday and the ladies had a lovely time. (Don’t worry, I’m in Queensland and we can have visitors). I hope all of you who are in lockdown are able to get some crafting done!

This week, we are casing the Donkey Sketch on page 5 of the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.

This is such a great layout to case. There is so many different options you can do with this!

I had a look through my stamp sets and I decided to have a play with the Walk In the Woods set. That little hedgehog is too cute!!

I used the Berry Delightful DSP (which is part of a Level 2 Sale-a-bration reward) as the background and for the strip across the card. I cut out a piece of thick white cardstock using the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I then stamped the mushroom and hedgehog in Saddle Brown Staz-on (which has retired). I didn’t want the harshness of black staz-on. I then coloured using the water-coloured pencils and blender pens.

Next up is the lovely Peta and Marvi.

We would love to see your creations using this sketch, so please share over on at our Facebook group.

I hope you are having a great week. It has cooled down the last couple of days which is nice! Bring on Autumn!!

We have a gorgeous colour combo this time, Sahara Sand, Pacific Point and Granny Apple Green.

Isn’t that a great photo! I recently purchased the Circle Celebration stamp set as I love the textures on the stamps.

I used the larger Stitched Rectangle die, which doesn’t quite fit our cards. I could have trimmed the bottom of the card but I didn’t think it look odd, so I left it.

I then stamped three of the circles in Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point and cut out using the Stitched Shapes dies and Circle Dies.

I added a piece of Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon and a bow. I did stamp the sentiment onto the card directly, but didn’t get it straight!! So I stamped it a second time and cut it out using a stitched rectangle die.
