Beautiful Party CTC#70

This week at CASE-ing The Catty we are sharing another SALE-A-Bration pick, whether it be a stamp set, one of the papers or even Project Life - they're all available for you to pick when you make an order of $90. If you happen to be mad for everything in the Occasions catalogue, you can pick an item for every $90 you order ($180 = 2 items, $270 = 3 items, $360 = 4 etc). If you get as high as that, maybe you should have a chat to me about joining up as a demonstrator, Stampin' Up!® welcomes and supports all types of demonstrators from the hobby demo buying crafting supplies at a discount, through to those making it a full time business. During SALE-A-Bration you get to choose $60 extra, choose $295 of any products from the Annual Catalogue and/or the Occasions Catalogue and pay only $169. Of course, if you prefer to be a customer, you can purchase your supplies through my online shop, or by contacting me, you just need to have a delivery address in Australia.

This week I took inspiration from the SALE-A-Bration leaflet, second issue, which began on February 16th, It includes two stamp sets - Pedal Pusher and Party Pants - plus a pack of three Metalics Glitter Tape. I broke out the silver glitter tape for these cards, and I'm so thrilled with it! It tears just like washi tape and the glitter is brilliant! I might have got a little bit carried away using it, but is it possible to have too much glimmer and gleam?

My first card was based on the little 'Congrats' card at the bottom right of the catty picture. Very loosely based I could add, but it's so easy to vere off in another direction. I had been playing with the volkswagon from Beautiful Ride. First I stamped it on the white card, and then a second image onto a piece of Perfectly Artistic DSP (one of the earlier SAB items which made way for these new ones). It was easy enough to trim the body of the car and remove the windows. In real life there is a nice impression of the tyres being recessed, quite realisticly. The wee dog in the back seat is a tiny stamp you can add anywhere you please. I taped this onto the Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper with silver clouds, and added a few candy dots.

For the second card, I was inspired by the gift bag in the middle of the picture. I couldn't stop at one balloon though, and used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to add a couple more. The sentiment stamped on the Pool Party balloon is a very useful one to hang on to and use for a long while after Sale-A-Bration ends. There are eight really handy greetings and the lovely big balloon in Party Pants.

Maybe you'd like to share something from SALE-A-Bration which has inspired you. Here is the link to CASE-ing The Catty where you can do that.

I've jumped into the blog straight after my dear friend Kathryn, in Adelaide, so make sure you go back to her blog if you've missed it. She has shared a gorgeous butterfly on Glimmer Tape (seems like we all like a bit of glitz and gleam!!!)

Or just keep on blog hopping forward to another Melbourne girl, Judy May, but don't forget to do a full circle!

Cheers, Rachel
