CTC115 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

I hope you are surviving the heat this weekend!  It’s so hot here, around 40 degrees Celsius!  We are camped out in the kitchen/lounge area with the air conditioning on.

We are back to casing the Sale-a-bration catalogue with week, pages 8-12.  This has a couple of my favourite freebies so it was hard to decide which one to do!!  I love the Delicate Details stamp set but apparently so do a few others in the Crew so I went with my other favourite, the Inside the Lines DSP.

For my first card, I cased the card in the top left corner with the flowers.  I did it very similar although I coloured the flowers in Peeakaboo Peach and used Old Olive patterned DSP.  I think the longest part to this card was cutting out the flowers!  Fussy cutting is not my favourite thing!  Oh, and I used markers to colour the flowers.

For my second card, I wanted to showcase the floral pattern piece of the DSP.  I used a few elements from a couple of the cards on this page.  I put vellum underneath the Thanks so that it stood out more.  And here’s a sneak peak of an upcoming SAB freebie, the Bermuda Bay glimmer paper!!  It comes in a pack with Mint Macaroon and Sweet Sugarplum in a 6″x6″ size, with 4 pieces of each colour.    This glimmer paper and two more stamp sets will be available on 21 February.

I’m glad I only did a small piece of this dsp.  Every time I coloured in with another watercolour pencils, I found a leaf that I had missed!!  But I think I got them all in the end.

Stampin’ Up! Product List

Colour INKspiration Introduction

ci-banner

I have some exciting news to share.  I’m on the Colour INKspiration Crew! It consists of a team of talented Aussie and NZ Stampin’ Up! ® Demonstrators that create projects based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches.

There’s also a Facebook group for Stampin’ Up! ® enthusiasts who would like to share their paper craft projects using the colour combinations.

Here’s the deal – Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 7 pm (AEDT), a new colour swatch will be uploaded to the Facebook Colour INKspiration Group and the Colour INKspiration Crew will get the ball rolling by providing inspiration for each challenge with a blog hop. Our first one starts on Wednesday, 11th January.

Members of the group have the option to join the Colour INKspiration ‘Challenge’ by uploading photos of their projects and can link back to their personal blog if they wish to. Make sure you click on the link below and ask to join Colour INKspiration, add the group to your favourites and share it with your crafty friends so they can join in with the challenges too.

So before we get started on 11 January, we are having a little pre-challenge to get into the groove.  Our colours are Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron.  You can add any neutrals or metallics papers that you like.  I was excited about this combo as Bermuda Bay is one of my favourite colours.

pre-challenge

So I just unpacked my pre-order parcels that I’ve had since the start of December and I just had to play with the Inside the Lines DSP which you can earn for free during Sale-a-bration.  Yay!!  And of course, I had to use the new water colour pencils too. Fortunately there was a Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight pencil.   Oh my goodness, these pencils are amazing!  Even if you aren’t arty, they make your project look stunning.  All I did was a little scribble on the flower then used my blender pen to spread the colour around.

I also used the new Falling in Love embellishments. You are going to fall in love with these. So pretty!

pre-challenge-card

I’m not one for making new year’s resolutions but I do intend to send more birthday cards this year, so I wonder who is going to get this one.  If you would like me to send you a card, just comment below with your email address and birthday.

Don’t forget that the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration start on 4th January!! Woo hoo!!

Happy New Year!!
