It’s our regular Caseing The Catty Sunday night blog hop time and this weeks hop is focussing on the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. There are so many great idea in such a little catalogue, we have lots to fuel our creativity with. So sit back with a cuppa and enjoy the inspiration we have for you tonight.
For this fortnights challenge, this week, I took inspiration from page 13 of the SAB catalogue. Remember this challenge runs for the next two weeks, so you have heaps of time to play along.
I just love the gift bag with all the repetition of those flowers. So simple but so effective. I wondered what I could do with that idea. Here is what I came up with…
It’s my Dad’s birthday…. Today!! He’s 86 and still going strong. He’s agile and works hard in his veggie patch and loves to go out on his boat and fish. He’s resourceful – can make something out of nothing and we affectionately refer to him as the Maltese-McGyver. (I know… I’m showing my own age here hey!)
So what better way to celebrate him than with the Smooth Sailing dies. I used the anchor, ships wheel and rope to create the repetitive feature pattern. I laid this over a base of Balmy Blue cardstock, which I stamped with the parquetry floor stamp from the Gallery Grunge set in Balmy Blue ink to add some background texture.
I die cut my pieces from Blueberry Bushell cardstock – can you believe it’s only 6 more months until this gorgeous colour retires in June – eek! I layered these over the stamped card base. Then finished off with a simple tie of thick twine and the sentiment.
The sentiment stamp is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, new in the 2020 Mini catalogue. This is fast becoming my go-to set for sentiments, it has so many useful ones. I stamped this in Blueberry Bushell ink on some Bermuda Bay cardstock.
It’s simple but effective just like the sample gift bag in the catalogue.
Next up is the very creative Lauren Meiklejohn.
After you’ve enjoyed the awesome hop with the team, I’m looking forward to seeing your CASE over in our challenge group. Be sure to load up your creation by 7pm, Sunday February 2.
We will be back next Sunday with more inspiration for you for this challenge.
Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
