Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team Blog Hop: Occasion Catalogue & Sale-A-Bration

I have not participated in a blog hop for so long and today I am excited to share with you creations from the awesome ladies in the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! Team with the focus on the new Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration promotion. Don't forget if you place an order with me during Sale-A-Bration, 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 31st March. 

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 Sale-a-bration, you get to choose whatever you like from our catalogues, but pay just $169 for $235 worth of product (that’s a huge discount!) but also you get to choose between two free product options. It’s quick and easy to join online too. Ask me how!

Now let’s get into showing you what I made using some of my favourite products from the Occasions catalogue ready for Easter giving. You may have come to my blog from Kate Morgan and don't you love what she created. 

I am in love with Indescribable Gift stamp set as it makes great projects including the card I made for today's blog hop, I have used my sponge daubers with three shades of pink to colour in the blossom which I stamped in Chocolate Chip as I think it creates a softer boarder than black.  I then made a matching basket using the new berry basket which I filled with yummy chocolates.

Stamp Set:  Indescribable Gift
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Wild Wasabi
Cardstock: Strawberry Slush, Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Accessories: Artisan Embellishment Kit, Sponge Daubers, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Berry Basket Bigz L Die

I had so much fun creating this blossom, I used my sponge doublers with lots of layers of colours. I started with the lightest colour to the darkest, the pinks - Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and Strawberry Slush and the greens - Pistachio Pudding and Wild Wasabi.

I am featuring the flowers, lace and ribbon from the Artisan Embellishment Kit, it has so many wonderful products and is such great value at $16.95 - 2 die-cut Sahara Sand 7.6 x10.2 cm cards, 0.9 m Blushing Bride Rosette Trim, 0.9 m Blackbery Blish Thin Velvet, 2 white Doilies, 12 adhesive pearls, 1 large metal flower button, 2 small metal buttons, 2 clear buttons, 2 Blushing Bride resin flowers, 1 white resin flower

  2. Gorgeous projects for Easter, Kathryn. Love the sponging on the card, such a lovely soft effect.

  3. Wow, Kathryn - these are beautiful! I LOVE how you've coloured the stamped image, and the little basket is beautifully embellished.

  4. I just love how the daubering gives the image such a soft, misty, water coloury kind of feel. Just got this stamp and can't wait to use it!

  5. Absolutely beautiful projects Kathryn. Your colouring is fabulous and that berry basket is just so pretty. Love it.
