It’s my great pleasure today to participate in this International Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop. The theme is Occasions Catalogue /Sale-A-Bration – can’t live without.

I just love, love, love the new Watercolor Pencils from the Occasions Catalogue. They can be used with a variety of techniques and give your projects a real colour lift. Have you tried them yet? No. Oh no!! Watch out for my special one-off Watercolor Pencil Class coming in March. It will consist of 4 different techniques with tutorials to go with them and some videos too. Too good to miss!! Contact me today for more details. Anyway onto my cheeky project:

 

I really couldn’t decide on just one product. I also love the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder, the Hey Chick and the new 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Assortment Pack. It’s OK though, I managed to incorporate all these into one card. (Mind you I think there are a few other products on my ‘can’t live without list’ too).

 

I created a back facing cheeky chicken by colouring some hair over its face and adding Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to draw in the hair. I’d never make a hairdresser but it doesn’t look too bad. Of course these chickens are always up to mischief and have managed to make a hole in the chicken wire.

I inked up the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder before running it through the Big Shot. I’ve distressed the edges of the card and the hole in the wire with my Paper Snips and a Sponge Dauber with Basic Black Archival Ink.

 

One last look at the card as a whole. I’ve used Shimmery White card and a Blender Pen for the colouring. Don’t forget the Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper behind the sentiment.

Now make sure you hop along and see what everyone else in this Blog Hop has to share. You’ll be amazed by the inspiration. Next in the hop is the wonderful Jen Tribue. There’s a full list of participants below.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.

Remember, your creativeness is only limited by your imagination. Keep smiling and until next we share…

The Latte Girls team are looking at Balloons today, in particular the hot air type. Stampin’ Up! have a terrific bundle in the Occasions Catalogue which fits this theme perfectly.

Oh this is a gorgeous bundle and I have a class running on it for next month. What? You didn’t know? Sign up for my Newsletter to stay up to date AND receive 3 free tutorials every full issue. Click on the banner below or sign up in the side bard.

I had a bit of fun making this card with circles, scallop circles hot air balloons and I almost forgot the sentiment and then decided to add some stars for good measure.

This would make a great card for a male or change the colours and the sentiment to give someone a lift in spirits or say thank you for someone making you feel better. Lots of possibilities.

Now don’t forget to visit Leonie and Narelle to see their inspiration for this week’s blog hop.

Now I must say, this isn’t my original idea. Shell Bower who is based in the U>K> shared this card in Stampin’ Cafe which is a Facebook Group for anyone to join but you can only share Stampin’ Up! projects. It’s a great little group and many, many wonderful projects are shared there.  So, I decided to do a video on how to create this card. It really means, you’re creating your own background and it’s very pretty .

It’s just another way you can use Sale-A-Bration products which are FREE with a AQ$90 order and you can order through me or my online store.

Watch the video and let me know what you think, by leaving a comment.

Isn’t that a great technique. You can make your own backgrounds with any stamps, however this FREE set through Sale-A-Bration makes it very easy.
  • Card base is 21 x 14.8cm scored at 10.5cm or 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
  • Layer 1 (coloured card) 14.3cm x 10cm or 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Layer 2 (with lace background) 13.8cm x 9.5cm or 5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Scraps for stamping the medallion
  • Scraps for die cutting piece behind medallion

The Second Release of Sale-A-Bration Items is available from today. You can choose one product FREE for every A$90 purchase. See the products here

Today’s card is more about creating a small piece of art work to give away. You can use any colours and place the flowers and sentiment anywhere on the card. You could use strips of Designer Series Paper instead of Washi Tape. Many different ways of making this card. Try substituting the Night of  Navy Solid Baker’s Twine with Linen thread for a different look. Here’s the video:

I always like to use my weekend posts for challenges. This is the first time I’ve entered this particular challenge and I must say it stretched me enormously. Here’s the ‘inkspiration’ for the challenge:

Great colours don’t you think? I wasn’t quite sure about the Peekaboo Peach but managed to work it in quite nicely. Now I used a stamp set I said I wasn’t going to buy as it didn’t ‘talk’ to me. Let me tell you it’s been yelling at me so I gave in and purchased it. Gorgeous stamp set to use and I don’t know, now, why I was so reluctant to put it on my shopping list.

So where did I use the colours?

  • Marina Mist – ocean – I stamped first and then sponged over the ocean for a bit more depth
  • Peekaboo Peach – light from the lighthouse
  • Soft Suede – Lighthouse, sand, grass, birds and sponged around the edges of the Whisper White layer
  • Whisper White – Card layer 2
  • Soft Sky – card base and stamping and sponging the sky. I stamped first and then lightly sponged right down to the ocean
  • Memento Tuxedo Black – Sentiment and sea gulls

It’s Saturday and I’m giving the videos a rest and participating in some challenges. Today’s is Global Design Project 074 Sketch Challenge. Sketch challenges are agreat as they have some flexibility in interpretation. Here’s the sketch:

Make sure you visit the Global Design Project Blog to see the inspiration of the Design Team and the other participants in the challenge. If you visit their blogs, make sure you leave a comment as we all love comments. So here’s my card:

I’ve used Sale-A-Bration products for the most part plus Framelits Dies and a punch. I added the Whisper White Baker’s Twine for added interest. The two smaller circles are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the rest with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I love the Glimmer Paper, I think it makes it look kind of pretty. The centre I double stamped – once in Bermuda Bay and once in Sweets Sugarplum and then die cut with framelits. What do you think? I’d love to read your thoughts.

Now, I’ve seen a lot of these from the Demonstrators in the USA and thought I’d give it a try. Let me know what you think? Is it helpful? Is it something you need or want?
