ESAD 2017 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration Blog Hop

Thanks for joining us on ESAD’s 2017 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration Blog Hop.  You may have hopped over to me after seeing Nicole’s great project.  When you’ve finished on my page make sure you click on the next button to hop over to Rachael’s project.  I’m sure you don’t want to miss out on any of these amazing posts.

Today we are highlighting products from the new Occasions Catalogue and teaming them up with products from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.  Both of these Catalogues are full of great new products.  During Sale-a-bration you get a free item of your choice from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue for every $90 you spend.  Who doesn’t love something for free?

I’ve chosen to use the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle (p26 Occasions) and Delicate Details Stamp Set (p9 SAB).  Now I’m sure you just looked at both of these sets and thought “they don’t really go together” but I hope to change your mind.  It’s obvious to pair Delicate Details with the Falling in Love suite but I wanted a challenge.


Dragonfly Card

I’ve used Tip Top Taupe as my card base and layered it with Night of Navy then added some Copper Foil as a border.

White Embossing

The Delicate Details Stamps have been heat embossed in white and the sentiment heat embossed in copper.

Spot backgroundLayered dragonfly

It’s hard to see in the photo but I’ve stamped some spots behind the dragonfly in Versa Mark.  The copper foil dragonfly has been layered with whisper white card stock.

I’ve added some more spots on the inside of the card (these ones are much easier to see lol) and a sentiment and a small copper dragonfly.  Now my post wouldn’t be complete without a picture of my assistant Marvi……….

Marvi is such a poser but as soon as I looked away……………….where did my copper dragonfly go?

Now it’s time to hop over to Rachael’s blog and check out her wonderful project.

Thank’s for stopping by, I’d love if you left me a comment

    Gorgeous card Peta! It’s too die for…. well I guess the dragonfly did too! Hopefully you saved him from the clutches of a cutie.
