Hello Sunday! And welcome to a CASEing the Catty blog hop, where the design team shares their creative inspirations from the pages of the Stampin’ Up! Catalogue.
Today’s theme is Sale-A-Bration…
You’ll see a range of projects inspired by the samples of the 2018 Sale-A-Bration catalogue.
I loved the ombre effect of the sample at the bottom of this photo on page 17…
So I set about making this feature the centrepiece of my card. I think the sample used cardstock for their letters. I created something similar using the Stampin’ Blends and Shimmery White Cardstock.
I coloured across the cardstock for this card….
Here’s what it looked like before I die cut –
- Light Pink Pirouette, Dark Pink Pirouette, Light Rich Razzleberry, Dark Rich Razzleberry
- Light Night of Navy, Dark Night of Navy, Dark Bermuda Bay, Light Bermuda Bay
- Light Daffodil Delight, Dark Daffodil Delight, Dark Pumpkin Pie, Light Pumpkin Pie
Here’s a close-up of the die cuts. I backed the cardstock with Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets before I ran it through the Big Shot – it makes it so easy to stick them on with no fuss or mess!

Here’s the pre-cut cardstock
- Dark Pink Pirouette, Light Rich Razzleberry, Dark Rich Razzleberry
- Light Night of Navy, Light Bermuda Bay, Dark Bermuda Bay
- Light Daffodil Delight, Dark Daffodil Delight, Dark Pumpkin Pie
The twine – which started white – was also coloured using Stampin’ Blends by running it under the brush tip along a clear stamping block. To get a slightly ombre effect, I
The addition of the ink from the blends makes it a bit thicker & more rustic, so I was able to curl the ends slightly using closed scissor blades.
I will never tire of my Blends!! Have you got yours? There’s lots of colours but if you add a couple of colours to each order you place, you’ll have a gorgeous set before you know it!
We’re just short of half way through the Sale-A-Bration promotion. Which means there’s still plenty of time to earn your rewards – and also 4 new items to look forward to very soon. The second Sale-A-Bration release starts on 16th Feb!!!
Next up for the design crew is Mel Pagano and her super cute Hedgehugs creation….
