CTC64 – Celebrating freebies

ctc_header

We are back with another Sunday Caseing the Catty blog hop! Sunday’s are coming around so quickly, aren’t they! Especially when you have to go to work or school the next day. But I hope we can cheer up your Sunday evening with lots of cards to inspire you!

This week, we are back to casing the Sale-a-bration catalogue. So many glorious freebies to be had!! Did you know that some of the free stamps and paper are only available until 15 February? No? Well you need to get your order in so you can get them before they are no longer available!!

I just love the Hello stamp set. It covers more than just birthdays, although that is what I have focussed on this week. I was inspired by the card on page 18 of the catalogue.

I loved the gold Hello on the original but I was too lazy to do embossing!! (It’s been pretty hot and humid this week, which doesn’t make for easy crafting!!) So I thought I would try White staz on ink on my watercoloured Bermuda Bay background. But it didn’t come out as white as I would have like, but I was committed so I continued with it. I then stamped the birthday sentiment in Rose Red and added a piece of the It’s my Party washi tape as well. (It’s one of my goals to USE washi tape this year, rather than just collect it!!). I then added a piece of the Bermuda Bay stitched ribbon (which is sooo much nicer than the picture in the catalogue!!)

I decided to try a clean and simple version of this card and I love it!! The colours look so nice and crisp!

Stampin’ Up! Product List

17 March 2013 – It’s a Pool Party!!

I have recently rediscovered the colour, Pool Party. It goes so nicely with More Amore Specialty DSP in the current seasonal catalogue.

I wanted to use my new Hearts a Flutter framelits as who doesn’t love a good banner!! I was inspired by Andi Potler on Splitcoast Stampers, here.

I made a few changes and I used the new ovals framelits and the gorgeous Two-tone ribbon. Seeing as it was coming up to Valentine’s Day when I made this card, I used a stamp from Word Play stamp set. And of course, who can resist the opportunity to use the honeycomb embossing folder! Not me!!

love club

We did this card at stamp club and I had a few kits left over, so I made them up again but I used the O’Hello stamp set from the seasonal catalogue so I could use it for a birthday card as well!! I hope you like it.
