Occasions & Sale-a-bration

So Very Grateful

Hello Stampers,

As you know, my Big Brown Box arrived from Stampin’ Up! a couple of days ago with my new supplies from the Sale-a-bration brochure & Occasions catalogue.

Here is another card I have created but this time a birthday card for a lovely lady.

The gorgeous background paper in called Sweet Sorbet and is from the Sale-a-bration brochure which if you place an order of $90 or more, you can get a packet for free! Yes you heard correct, free and it has 12 sheets in the pack!

The stamp is from the So Very Grateful Stamp Set in the new Occasions Catalogue, available for purchase on 28th January. Just let me know if you would like a copy of the catalogues mailed to you prior to the sale starting!

I used the Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the image and stamp the sentiment in Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Canteloupe.

Father’s Day Card

Morning Crafters,

I think it is well and truly time to get making our Father’s Day cards! It’s only 2 weeks until the 1st September and it will be here before we know it.

These cards are made in a similar way to the washi tape card I posted on Wednesday.  Super duper quick and although these are Father’s Day cards, imagine using Christmas papers instead!!! How fast it would be to make your Christmas cards in no time at all. This card only takes about 5-8 minutes to make!

Adhere a sheet of JAC paper to an A4 piece of Whisper White cardstock. (If you don’t know what JAC paper is, it’s a double sided sticky sheet). Cut a strip of this cardstock at 6cm, turn this strip 90 degrees and cut again at 6cm to create a square.

Cut 6 strips of your favourite Designer Series Paper (DSP) at 1cm. You will need 3 sheets of DSP as the sheets are double sided and coordinating colours.

Pull the other side of the JAC paper off and stick the strips on making sure they line up against each other.

Trim the excess and if you so desire, run your square through the Big Shot machine in an embossing folder for a little extra texture!

I even made a Happy Birthday one with left over scraps of paper!

Cardstock: Baked Brown Sugar, Neutrals DSP Stack, Whisper White

Tools: Big Shot, Chevron TIEF, Simply Scored, Trimmer

Punches: Word Window, Modern Label

This next card is also using JAC paper, but I cut the A4 page in quarters and adhered 1 piece to my A5 folded card. The Baked Brown Sugar strips were stuck on randomly, one across and one up and down, then alternating the strips of DSP and remaining strips of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock. Isn’t it an effective look! The centre piece was die cut and punched and put together with dimensionals and I sponged the edges with Baked Brown Sugar ink before wrapping the twine around 3 times.
