Last Saturday I had my Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogue Launch. It was a great time with 2 different times scheduled. I think we all had a great time. Why wouldn’t we?? We are creating and having a few laughs (always good for the soul!!). I thought I would show you the projects we did.
Firstly, this card uses the new Chalkboard cardstock and chalk inks. (p 25 of the Occasions Catalogue). The chalk inks come in 3 colours at the moment – Aquarmarine (green), Rose Coral (pink) and Yellow Citrus (yellow). This card was CASED from Pinterest. I have used the Sale-A-Bration paper ‘Best Year Ever’. The chalk inks match nicely with this paper. I used the ‘Big Day’ stamp set. Another Sale-A-Bration Free choice!
To give an idea how the Chalkboard cardstock looks I stamped the images on different card for comparison. You might get some idea from the photos but I have to say it is much better in real life. 🙂
I used the same chalk ink on each of these cards – the Rose Coral chalk ink pad. The first one on the left the image is stamped on regular Basic Black cardstock, the middle one is stamped on the chalkboard paper on the rough side. The one on the right ( I know I didn’t write on this one. I thought I could use it on a card later), is stamped on the shiny, smooth side of the Chalkboard paper. This is important. You will notice the 2 different surfaces to the card. You must stamp on the smoother side. You get a much more crisper image.
This card was CASED from Pinterest also and is using ‘Crazy About You’ stamp set. This is stamped in Strawberry Slush and Pistachio Pudding. The greeting is in Smoky Slate and the “you” is from the ‘Hello There’ Thinlets from the Silver Foil.
Of course, we can’t forget the Goodie Bags I gave to all the guests. These were inspired by a project on Pinterest. I used regular brown lunch paper bags and decorated them with the ‘Butterfly Basics’ stamp set and the Butterfly Dies. The sentiment is from the Sale-A-Bration set ‘Simply Wonderful’. I coloured part of the “THANKS” with the blender pen and inkpads. The Designer Series Paper is from the Painted Blooms DSP. Absolutely gorgeous paper! The tags were attached with a cute little peg.
So I bet you wish you could have joined us!! If you are local you will have to make sure you are here next time 🙂 It was great fun.
If you haven’t seen the Occasions or Sale-A-Bration Catalogues yet then there is a link in the right hand column that will take you there. If you would like your own copy (and you are in Australia), then let me know and I can send one your way.
