CTC #216 - Sale-A-Bration

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

This week we are taking our inspiration from both of the Sale-A-Bration catalogues/flyers, you can find links to both on the top left hand side of my blog.

I took my inspiration from this cute little bag on page 6 of the first release SAB catalogue. I realised that I haven't used this embossing folder very much since I first bought it, and it is so pretty.  I do of course love the cute little cupcakes too so very happy to ink up that stamp set again!

I kept the layout and colour scheme very much the same as the original, but added a layer of the beautiful SAB Calypso Coral Ribbon on each side of the main panel to frame it better.  The main panel I also spritzed with Shimmer Paint mixed with rubbing alcohol to give it a bit more sparkle, pairing this with a Rhinestone rather than pearl on the little flower. I did use the Well Said bundle for the sentiment, but changed it up a bit from the original.

I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week, just use the samples from one of the Sale-A-Bration catalogues to inspire your creativity, then post a picture of your project to the CTC Facebook page.

Time to hop on over and see what Tina has created this week.

Happy Stamping
