ESAD Occasions Catalogue and Sale A Bration Blog Hop




Hi Crafty Friends,
Welcome to my creative space. If you have come hopping to me, I hope you are enjoying yourself so far and finding lots of creative ideas ready for the new Occasions Catalogue.

Today I have made a few projects for you. Firstly, I've made  one layer card in 2 colour schemes using the Lift Me Up stamp set and the co-ordinating dies, Up & Away.
the first one has a base of Rich Razzleberry with Island Indigo and Calypso Coral. I've stamped using the masking technique to create layers of stamping to give the image some depth.  I've also added some highlights with a white gel pen. This really makes the card pop! Finally, a strip of Sale A Bration Carried Away DSP and a stamped sentiment from the stamp set and you're finished. I've done exactly the same for the other card, however, I've used Rose Red, Crumb Cake & Island Indigo as my colour scheme. I can't pick a favourite. Can you?

 



For my next card, I've used the stunning High Tide stamp set.  Because the image is so beautiful I didn't want to do much embellishing.  I've taken a panel of Whisper White and stamped with Versamark and embossed with Clear embossing powder.  Then using Dapper Denim, I've sponged around the image and then lightly brushed over the whole image with my Aqua Painter.  I've done some stamping using Dapper Denim to add the water and birds. The card is finished off by matting on Whisper White and placed onto a card base of Delightful Dijon using Dimensionals.  To embellish, I've tied a bow of Smokey Slate 1/8" ribbon and a few Basic Jewels onto the lighthouse.




 My second card using High Tide was made using exactly the same technique as before, however, Ive sponged with Smokey Slate and done my stamping in Smokey Slate.  I've cut my focal image using the Lots of Labels Framelits and stamped a sentiment onto a tag from the Tags & Labels Framelits. My matt layer is Watermelon Wonder and I've stamped a background in Versamark and let dry.  The ribbon is the 3/8" Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack from the upcoming Sale A Bration catalogue.

 My final card is stamped using Tasty Trucks and Hey, Chick. Both are from the Sale A Bration catalogue.  I've masked as I did in my first card using post it notes. This allowed me to combine the awesome chick into the food truck. He really is my favourite chick, so darn cute.  The clouds are from Lift Me Up in the Occasions Catalogue.  All colouring is done with my ink pads and Blender Pens.  My colour scheme is Flirty Flamingo, Dapper Denim, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.

I hope you have enjoyed what I've made for you today. Please follow along and check out Nerida Carter and what she has made.  Thank you for joining me today.
