This afternoon, I am joining the Latte Girls’ Blog Hop for the first time … thank you for joining in as well. Today’s Freshly Brewed Projects feature two of the amazing Sale-a-bration products that you could also add to your creativity collection.

The Amazing You Stamp Set and coordinating Celebrate You Thinlits Dies will allow you to create a wide variety of cards, tags and so many other paper-craft projects.

  Celebrate You Thinlit Dies

I decided my card would say “Let’s Celebrate You” and realising that we had recently celebrated New Year’s Eve, all I could ‘see’ were dazzling fireworks!

I stamped each burst of colour multiple times, rotating the stamp each time, layering the colours – Daffodil Delight, Emerald Envy, Night of Navy and Real Red. Generous strokes from the Wink of Stellar Glitter Brush added the glimmer that I wanted.

The technique used is what I call a reverse eclipse … ‘celebrate’ is adhered to the Night of Navy mat and the remainder of the stamped card front has dimensionals to lift it up. For a little added layering, the two semi-circular ‘fireworks’ are also raised. After the Thinlit was used, I then stamped the ‘Let’s’ in Night of Navy and heat embossed the ‘You’ using silver embossing powder.

The finishing touch was adding some of the new Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes.

Both the Amazing You Stamp Set and the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies are FREE … during Sale-a-bration, while stocks last. You can earn these products each time you order $90 of goodies from any current catalogue [before shipping and handling].

Each $90 spent earns you one Sale-a-bration item, accompanied by the Pool Party icon, in the catalogue. To earn products with a Calypso Coral icon you need to spend $180.

You can place an order any time you like … just visit my online shop … and if you would like suggestions or assistance, contact me … I look forward to helping you!
Now it’s time to hop over to what the other Latte Girls have created:
