BE INSPIRED - SALE-A-BRATION


Welcome to this month's Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! Our theme this month is Sale-A-Bration. You may have arrived here from my lovely talented friend Stesha, or if you are starting here be sure to hop all the way around, you won't want to miss any of the inspirational projects the design team have created.  


Yes this is my favourite Sale-A-Bration Set! I love the Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set and co-ordinating Birthday Dies! It's so versatile and the dies just take it to another level.

For this card I've "daubered" the background with Balmy Blue ink then embossed it using the Subtle 3D folder - another of my favourite items! 


The floral images have been white embossed then water coloured with Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green. I'm challenging myself this year to using different colours and working my way through all the Stampin' Up! colours!

The leaves have been die cut in Granny Apple Green and Vellum Cardstock and tucked under the floral images.

Next up in today's hop is my lovely friend Tanya, I'm looking forward to seeing what gorgeous creation she has to share with us.

CASEING THE CATTY 263 | CASE THE COLOURS OF KERCHIEF CARD KIT


Hello and welcome to this week's CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. This week we are CASEing the colours from the Kerchief Card Kit on page 9 of the Sale-A-Bration. You are currently visiting Angela Meiritz-Reid's blog, you may have come from my talented friend Judy or if you're just joining thanks for stopping by. Please make sure to click on the next button at the end of this post to continue on the hop - you won't want to miss any!

No photo description available.

The 2020 Sale-A-Bration Catalogue has lots of gorgeous FREE products (please contact me if you live in New Zealand and would like to find out more)! 


It wasn't hard to choose the colours to case and I've also cased the layout! I'm using the French sentiment left over from the card kit as we have a French student staying with us for two weeks and I'm going to add it to cards to give to her mother when she returns home.

The Coastal Cabana base has been embossed with the Subtle sentiment and then I've added a Rectangle Stitched Die using paper from the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (another Sale-A-Bration FREEBIE)!


The flowers from the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set have been gold embossed and die cut with the co-ordinating Birthday Dies. I've water coloured them in Coastal Cabana and Pear Pizzazz. The Night of Navy circle has been created by water colouring a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock with Night of Navy ink and die cutting. I've also done this with some of the leaves and sprigs, the others have been die cut in Gold Foil Sheets and Vellum Cardstock.

I've added three Gold Metallic Pearls, how cute are they? And a Whisper White Baker's Twine Bow.

We would love you to join us with your CASE this week or next, using our Facebook group. Click on the image below to go there. For the first time you'll need to click on the "Join Group" button at the top. After you're added you can post your creation and you don't need to have a blog.

This year we are extending our challenges to two weeks. We will still hop weekly, showcasing different cards each week but you will have two weeks to participate.

INK IT! STAMP IT! - HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!


Welcome to the Ink It! Stamp It! Design Team Blog Hop. You may have arrived from my lovely and talented friend Kirsten Aitchison from Australia. If you are starting here please see the complete list at the bottom of this post which will guide you through all the creative projects the team has to share.

The theme for this hop is "Birthdays" and the Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue is perfect for creating a birthday card.


I love water-colouring and after seeing my gorgeous friend Sylwia Schreck water-colour using markers I decided to try it. Usually I dip my Aqua Painter in the ink but using the markers is much quicker as there is less water (well when I water-colour!) so it dries faster and the depth of the colour isn't washed away! 


Teamed with my other favourite mediums - paste, metallic thread, vellum and sequin, I'm in my happy place!


I created a little gift tag too, using all the same elements and added a strip of paper from the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.


I love the co-ordinating Birthday Dies - they make life much easier and there are some cute extra dies in the set too!


The Shimmery White Embossing Paste adds a lovely little sparkle to your project!

Thanks so much for stopping by - it's so lovely to have you here!

Please keep hopping for more great projects celebrating Birthdays!
