I guess everyone is busy preparing for the festive season . I was surprisingly well organised this year , managing to have my cards posted out about 2 weeks ago . I have received some lovely hand made Christmas cards from friends and clients which I will be showing on my blog after Christmas . My ladies are so creative it's so lovely to see !
I have had the opportunity in the last few days to have a play with some of the products form the new catalogue which begins on 5 th January along with SAB . Don't know what I mean by SAB ? Sale-a-Bration is the one time of the year when S. U bring out a mini SAB catalogue filled with exclusive products you get to choose one for free with every $90 you spend , before postage . Pretty cool right ?
This year's products are awesome and I had so much trouble trying to choose because I wanted them all ! Why do I get to play before you do ? It's one of the many benefits of becoming a demonstrator ! I get to order from the new catalogue one month before the catalogues go live so that I can create samples for my customers to see at the next workshop or class . If you'd like to join my fantastic team contact me for more information . Also if you don't have your new catalogues yet I have plenty on hand so just contact me to organise to collect your copy .
Now to the cards , today I'm going to showcase cards created using the Going Global and Sky Is The Limit stamp sets along with the World Travler TEF and Going Places DSP stack . These sets work really well together along with some of the sets in the AC including the Project Life Lets Get Away set.
This card was easily put together using the Watercolour Wash Background stamp . I love how it turned out .
Then I played around with inking the embossing folder which turned the sea blue ! I've used Lost Lagoon here onto Sahara Sand CS . A quick and easy male card ! That's what we like right !
I love it mounted onto our Red Foil paper too !
For this next card I've combined the SAB set The Sky is the Limit with the TEF . this time I've inked the other side of the TEF so that the land parts turn black and I've also again used Sahara Sand C. S. Then I just stamped the plane image using Memento Black ink into Sahara Sand and cut it out with my circle framelits along with a B. Black Matt ! Done ! Another quick and easy card !
Now for a feminine touch see how I prettied this one up ! The Crumb Cake DSP is from the Love Blossoms DSP stack in the O.C and also available in the O. C is that gorgeous Blushing Bride new glimmer paper ! Card base is Blushing Bride and I've use Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake inks . A few gold sequins and some tiny drops of glue using the Fine Tip Glue Pen then a sprinkle with gold glitter added a final touch of class .
These next two cards use the Going Places DSP and are cased directly from the catalogue . I've substituted some retired Crushed Curry ribbon as I did not have the ribbon used in the cattie .
So there's you little sneak peak for today and I'm getting right back into it now ! So many new toys so little time !
Remember classes resume on Thursday January 7 th at 9.30 am until 12 pm and next class is at 1.30 pm until 4 pm . After this first class we will be going back to Sunday classes , Scrapbooking begins on the 17 th January at 1 pm and I'm taking bookings now .
Off to play !
