Occasions Catalogue Blog Hop!!!

Today I’m excited to bring you a blog hop with some of the awesome ladies in the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! Team. 
Today is the first day of the brand new Occasions Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Catalogue in Australia and also the very first day of our biggest promotion of the year, Saleabration! If you place an order with me during Saleabration, you can choose a free item with every $90 you spend in one transaction. There are lots of fabulous free items to choose from (ask me for a brochure and an Occasions Catalogue) and the promotion goes right through until March 31st.
Better still, become part of our awesome fun, friendly and supportive Art With Heart team. We have a really large team Australia wide that has been around since Stampin’ Up! came to Australia. We have a very active team forum and also have in person stamp days, challenges, card swaps, product shares and more. 
When you join during Saleabration, you get to choose whatever you like from our catalogues, but pay just $169 for $255 worth of product (that’s a 33% discount!). It’s quick and easy to join online too. Ask me how!
Now let’s get into showing you what you can make with the great new products in the Occasions and Saleabration catalogues. You have come to my blog from Nikki Sadler 

My card features Watercolour Wonder Designer Series Paper and So Very Grateful Stamp Set, both from the new Seasonal Catalogue that starts today!!!
I started by stamping on watercolour paper and then colouring with markers and a blender pen, using Tangerine Tango and Pear Pizzazz. Next I used the Angled Tag Topper Punch to punch out my water coloured piece. I stamped the Thank You stamp from So Very Grateful in Tangerine Tango on Very Vanilla Cardstock, and punched a coordinating scallop oval.

And thats where the fun began!! I didn't know whether to use Tangerine Tango ribbon on the tag or Daffodil Delight, so I ended up dying my own ribbon to tie in with the watercolour theme. I used an old plastic lid and sprayed some Very Vanilla Seam binging with water and then added some drops of Daffodil Delight reinker and inked parts of the seam binding.  I then came in with some Tangerine Tango reinker for the rest of the ribbon. I love the result and if it wasn't so late at night I think I would still be dying ribbon in all sorts of colours. (I will get back to that though,  it was so much fun)

Let’s keep this blog hop hopping. Next up we have Kathryn Mangelsdorf 

Thanks for visiting today. Don’t forget to email me at email me to get a copy of the Occasions Seasonal Catalogue or Saleabration brochure, or to enquire about joining the Art With Heart team.

Until next time, Happy Stamping!!

  3. The ribbon is very effective with that tie-dyed look. Wasn't getting this stamp but it looks so lovely on your project, I may have to reconsider!
