CTC169: Sale-A-Bration

Today I played along with CASEing the Catty Challenge, CASEing pages from the
Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.  I chose the card from page 14.


Products Used:


How I made this card:

  • Card base: Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes – Calypso Coral.
  • Banner: Calypso Coral Cardstock cut to 4-1/4″ x 2-1/2″.  To create the banner using the Stampin’ Trimmer I cut a slit at 1-1/4″ approx. 1.5cm long, then taking my Paper Snips I cut from the corner to the top of the slits on both sides. Finally I used the Basket Weave Embossing Folder, found in the Blossoming Basket Bundle, to emboss the banner.
  • I stamped the sentiment found in the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set in Basic Gray Archival on to Whisper White Cardstock then punched out with the Everyday Label Punch.
  • Then I stamped the flowers and leaves from the same stamp set.  I stamped the individual flowers in with the Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral Ink Pad on to Whisper White Card Stock.  Then for the flowers with the leaves and the separate leave stamp I coloured in stamps with the Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Markers.
  • Then I started to but the card together by adhering the banner to the card base with Fast Fuse Adhesive, I cut two strips of each Bermuda Bay and Basic Gray Ribbon from the Shimmer Ribbon Pack, I ruffed up the edges of the ribbon.  Then attached them with Fast Fuse to the banner.  I attached the sentiment piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Using Paper Snips I fussy cut out all the flowers and leaves. The Bermuda Bay flowers I cut smaller then the stamped image. I started adhering the flowers and leaves with both Fast Fuse and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I finished off this card by stamping, Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Markers, onto the matching envelope.


I really like how this CASE turned and the overall layout of this card.

Until next time… Happy Stampin’,

The Mixed Medallions Step Up

I wanted to spotlight the Mixed Medallions Card Kit from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.  This kit contains preprinted sentiments so no stamping required.  This card kit is free with a $90 purchase before shipping & handling until the 31 March.

I wanted to demonstrate how when you take a few extra steps you can step up these beautiful cards.

Products used:

So here are the cards as per the written instructions.




My first step I simply added some die cut pieces.  Using the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies I cut out a Sahara Sand and a Berry Burst Medallion.  I adhered them underneath the sentiment pieces on the card using Tear & Tape Adhesive.




The final step up includes the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Die pieces.  I used the back of the preprinted sentiments of the other languages to stamp the sentiments from the Eastern Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set, stamping in Calypso Coral Classic Stampin’ Pad.

I adhered a piece of Calypso Coral ribbon from the Shimmer Ribbon Pack (also found in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue).  Then I punched a circle of Whisper White Cardstock using the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch, and attached it to the card with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I attached the sentiment and scalloped circle as normal.




I love how quick and easy this kit is to put together and with some simple step ups you can take thees cards to the next level.

Until next time… Happy Stampin’,

My Onstage Sydney Swaps

I just wanted to share my swap that I created for Onstage Local that I attended this past weekend in Sydney.

I participated in my teams ATC (Artist Trading Card) Swap which required us to create cards that were 3x4in in size.

This is the card I created:


I used products from the Succulent Garden Suite along with the Suite Sentiments Stamp Set and the Layering Circles and Stitched Shapes Dies.

I just love the way it all came together and I think it would look just as great scaled to fit on an A6 card front.

Until next time.. Happy Stampin’,
