Stamp Review Crew | Sale-A-Bration 2019

We’re sneaking in a bonus hop this month so we can share some Sale-A-Bration projects with you.  Make yourself a cuppa, sit somewhere comfy and scroll through the gorgeous creations from this clever team of SU! Demonstrators from around the world.

We were able to choose any Sale-A-Bration 2019 stamp set, so you’re going to see lots of variety and a sneak peek into everyone’s craft room favourites.  These sets are all available for {FREE} when you spend a qualifying amount.  This varies in each region.  In Australia, level 1 sets (all except the Lasting Lily stamp set) are free with a $90 order.  Lasting Lily is a level 2 set and available with a $180 order.

I’m playing with the Lovely Lattice stamp set on page 15.

These are the gorgeous catalogue samples….

I wanted to use the flowers from this large centrepiece stamp in a different way – by stamping them at the corners.

My first colour combination was a white base, Blushing Bride mat and Crumb Cake card front.  I added a white embossed sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays.

Then I changed up the order of the colours to have a Crumb Cake base, Blushing Bride mat and Whisper White card front.  This is a really easy way to make cards in multiples without them all being the same.

To add more texture to the cards (and because I’m totally obsessed with these framelits!), I cut & raised a Stitched Rectangle from the card front.  I really love how the framelits are designed to stitch on both the cut shape and the negative space.

The wooden butterfly on each card are also a Sale-A-Bration item for 2019.  Each pack has 84 elements – butterflies, flowers, leaves and more butterflies!  They are the perfect finishing touch for pretty & sweet cards.

I love these colours and can’t pick a favourite between the two designs!  Do you love one more than the other?

CASEing the Catty #211 | All My Love

Today is the end of another wonderful Sunday in January!  In Australia, January is such a lovely time – the days are long & warm, it’s school holidays so it’s lazy starts and fun days and no school lunches to pack!!!

How was your weekend?

The other great thing about Sundays is it finishes with a CASEing the Catty blog hop.  Today the Crew are sharing projects inspired by pages 4-9 of the Occasion Catalogue – the All My Love suite and following pages.

No photo description available.

So much love in this section of the catalogue – but as you’ll see from the Crew’s projects, they are great inspiration for all occasions.

I was inspired by the ‘You are Loved’ card on page 4 of the catalogue…

I wanted to recreate the look of having a die cut on the top layer and colour peeking out from the bottom layer.

The new Butterfly Beauty Framelits seemed like the perfect choice for this technique.

This style of card is better for an avid crafter who has a few supplies.  I cut the butterfly segment from a piece of Whisper White cardstock (4″ x 5-3/4″) and layered a piece of the beautiful All My Love DSP behind it.  I then added Multi-Purpose Adhesive Sheet to another piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut the butterflies again.  If you like using small dots of Tombow glue, you could use the die cut from the first piece.  The butterfly die segment sits back inside the negative piece.

To add some detail to the card, I cut the bottom right butterfly again from the same sheet of DSP, and used the top right butterfly from my first white die cut and layered these on top of the big butterfly in the middle.


And since I had a leftover DSP butterfly, I carried the theme through to the middle of the card.

The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthdays – this is a fabulous new set filled with awesome birthday sentiments.  If you send lots of birthdays cards (like me), you’ll want to make sure to order this to coordinate with all your favourite themed sets.

If the All My Love section of the catalogue sparks your creativity this week, we’d love for you to upload your CASEd creation to our Facebook group.
