Occasions ans Sale-a-bration Blog Hop


If you haven't already,  you really want to check out what's in the new cattys. 
Some cutesy pootsie stuff that you won't want to miss out on getting. 

Remember if you spend $50.00 (in product - before taxes and S&H) in either the Regular catty or the Occasions catty or a combination of items from both.  You get to choose one item 
from the Sale-a-bration catty for FREE.  
Yep,  FREE.  
Here's the real kicker, 
for every $50 (in product only-before taxes and S&H) you purchase.....
you get to pick one item from the SAB catty.
$50 - 1 item
$100 - 2 items
$150 - 3 items and so on and so on. 

Here a the result of a few of the freebies from the 
SAB catty I used for the 
making of this card. 

I used an aqua painter and many different inks to 
create the watercolor look after I embossed the 
sentiment using VersaMark and Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder 
and heat setting it. 

Botanicals for you stamp set  (in SAB catty) #141234
Honeycomb Happiness stamp set  (in SAB catty) #141291
Balloon Bouquet punch  (in Occasions mini catty) #140609
Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder  #109130
Watercolor paper  #122959
Aqua painter  #103954
Various inks & cardstock

Christmas is almost upon us!!!

Join us in getting ready for the holidays and maybe get some ideas for your 
Christmas cards.

Below you will find that mine is pretty simple.  Well,  
simple for me as I tend to go
 wayyyy overboard sometimes.....LOL

First,  I taped off the Whisper white piece with washi tape to create a 
wide band.....kinda off center. 
Then I blended the two colors to resemble the sky and ground.
Then, I gently peeled the tape off and stamped the trees from 
"Lovely as a Tree
(One of the oldest available stamp set that Stampin' Up! still carries).

Then, I cut the word "NOEL" (using a thinlit and a Bigshot) out 3 times
 and glued them
 one on top of the other to give it some dimension. 
Layered it all together and its "LOVELY" 

Don't forget to stroll on through all the others and I'm sure they will make 
your "Holidays Bright"

Once you get all your ideas for your cards.......
get off this wonderful sleigh ride which was cleverly disguised as a 
Blog hop 
and get to creating.

Nothing says holidays like a homemade gift.
