SAB 2019

I’ve been through these catalogues many times and there’s so many amazing new products.  I had a hard time choosing which bundle to use for my project.  I eventually decided to use the Forever Lovely bundle on page 5 of the Occasions Catalougue and I’ve teamed it up with the gorgeous Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets from the Sale-a-bration catalogue.

My assistant, Marvi, was pleased to pose for photos today.  He’s been on his best behaviour since I caught him unwrapping the dogs Christmas present.  Click on the link below to see how naughty he was.

I’ve made two cards for tonights blog hop, both using the Forever Lovely Bundle.

The first card is a Z Fold Card.  The Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet has been die cut with a die from the Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies.  That’s a whole lot of lovely.  This die embosses as well as cuts, if you look really closely you’ll see the embossing around the flowers.

I’ve also used some of the co-ordinating DSP, All My Love.

I think this would make a lovely Valentine’s Day card.  I’ve used the sentiments from the Forever Lovely stamp set.

The second card is using all the same products but it’s got twice as much loveliness with the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet bordering the top and bottom of my card.

I’ve added a Stitched Square in Soft Sea Foam behind my sentiment.

ESAD December 2018 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

Stampin' Cat ESAD Joyous Noel Merry Christmas To All Stampin' Up!

ESAD Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my Blog.  It’s a busy night as I’m participating in two Blog Hop’s tonight.  The first Hop is with ESAD.  What is ESAD I hear you ask?

What is ESAD?

I’m joined by 19 lovely Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from Australia and New Zealand and we’re going to bring you some quick and easy Christmas inspiration using products from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  You may have hopped over from the lovely Cathy Pinchbeck, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you complete the full Hop, there’s a Participant List at the end of my post just in case you get lost along the way.

2018 Holiday Catalogue Front Cover

This Christmas will be the first Christmas in 35 years that I haven’t worked in Retail.  Wow, I’m feeling less stressed than I normally do this time of year.  I’ve even got all my Christmas cards made, the tree is up and I’m feeling organised.  If you’re not that organised I’m sure you’ll find plenty of inspiration in this Blog Hop.  Don’t forget there’s only 22 days until Christmas!!!

Stampin' Cat ESAD Joyous Noel Merry Christmas To All Stampin' Up!

I’ve made two quick and easy cards using my favourite DSP in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  Joyous Noel Specialty DSP is so stunning with the Copper Foil accents.  I will be sad to see this DSP go.

Stampin' Cat ESAD Joyous Noel Merry Christmas To All Stampin' Up!

I’ve used a Thick Whisper White card base then adhered some DSP.  I’ve added a couple of borders to the DSP, one card has Tranquil Tide and the other Grey Granite.  There’s also a Copper Foil border on both cards.

Stampin' Cat ESAD Joyous Noel Merry Christmas To All Stampin' Up!

I’ve added some Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape to some card stock then used the Merry Christmas To All Thinlits Dies to die cut my words.  This is a quick and easy way to add a little bit more copper shine to my cards.  Adding some Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the back of the card stock makes adhering the words super easy.

These cards look so shiny and Coppery (is that a real word) in real life.  My photos don’t do them justice.  I’ve tried to capture their shine in the next couple of photos.

The sentiments have been embossed with Copper Embossing Powder and are from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set.  I’ve used the Classic Label punch to punch them out.

I asked my assistant, Marvi, to pose for a photo and this is what I got.  We might get a better pose next time.  I think he really just wanted a tummy rub lol.

ESAD 2018 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

Stampin' Cat ESAD Dashing Deer Shimmer Paint Stampin' Up!

ESAD 2018 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my Blog.  It’s a busy night as I’m participating in two Blog Hop’s tonight.  The first Hop is with ESAD.  What is ESAD I hear you ask?

ESAD

I’m joined by 25 lovely Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from Australia and New Zealand and we’re going to bring you some Christmas inspiration using new products from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  You may have hopped over from the lovely Katrina Duffell, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you complete the full Hop, there’s a Participant List at the end of my post just in case you get lost along the way.

2018 Holiday Catalogue

The 2018 Holiday Catalogue starts on the 5th of September and runs until the 2nd of January 2019.  The first thing on my wish list was the Dashing Deer Bundle and the Shimmer Paint so I thought I’d combine these two items for my project today.

Stampin' Cat ESAD Dashing Deer Shimmer Paint Stampin' Up!

I’ve made four cards as there’s four colours of Shimmer Paint.

Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint

Bright Copper Shimmer Paint

I’ve inked up the antlers with my Black Ink Pad then I’ve painted the Shimmer Paint directly onto my stamp with a small paint brush then stamped it onto my card stock.  I’ve used Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Gold Foil and Copper Foil.

Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint

I’ve painted the whole stamp with Shimmer Paint for these two cards.  I’ve used Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Silver Foil and Champagne Foil.  The little bows on the reindeer’s necks are die cut from the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper and the sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.

It’s hard to photograph the Shimmer on the cards.  They look much better in real life than in my pictures.

My assistant, Marvi, not only helps out when I’m photographing my cards, he’s quite helpful when I’m typing my Blog too.  If there’s any spelling errors I blame him lol.
