CTC #161 - Sale-A-Bration

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, where we take a look at a section of one of the current Stampin' Up! catalogues and use a project within it to inspire our creations.

This week we are looking at the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Catalogue, which is filled with products you can earn for free with every $90 or $180 purchase from any of the Stampin' Up! range in any current catalogue, or off the Clearance Rack! There isn't any restriction on our SAB CASEs so any image in the catalogue is fair game.

I chose the Lemon Lime Twist card in the above image from page 8.

I decided to switch up the colours but keep with the same stamp sets, Lots of Lavender for the flowers, and the stamp set from the gorgeous Lots of Happy Card Kit. This kit is really worth getting as not only do you get a great stamp set with some amazing sentiments and floral images, but also four water colour pencils, two of which are exclusive to the kit!

I used Painted With Love DSP for the panel and coordinating Rich Razzleberry and Calypso Coral for the layers. I have never been able to get ribbon to sit right behind a panel like this, so cheated a little and each of the four pieces you can see are actually individual pieces and don't join up behind the card!  By doing this I could position each exactly where I wanted it, and also saved quite a bit of ribbon in the process!

I hope you are inspired to join in with the challenge this week, you don't need to have any of the SAB items, just take inspiration from one of the projects and substitute a set you do have (or pop in an order and get a SAB set of course!). To join in just post a picture of your project on the CTC Facebook Page

Time to hop on over and see what Rebecca has been inspired to create this week.

Happy Stamping
