Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers 2017/2018 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Lea Denton - Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers 2017/2018 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek
 
Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop for May 2017. This month our theme is the "2017/2018 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek". We want to show you some of the AMAZING products that are available exclusively for demonstrators to order right now! If you join my team now you'll be able to get your hands on these new products early too!


    

Isn't it funny how you see things sometimes - when I first saw this bundle it wasn't the images that drew me to it but the sentiments. The only real way I can describe them is BIG BOLD and BEAUTIFUL. They really are just amazing as you can see for yourself below! The Colorful Seasons Bundle (#145348) isn't one of the cheapest bundles in the new Annual Catalogue but it's certainly one of the most versatile. Stamps and dies to cover every season of the year - what more could you ask for in a papercraft investment!



I've actually made a couple of cards from this set which I'll be showing you later in the week so don't forget to pop back to see them. If you haven't done so already Subscribe to my blog to have regular emails sent out to you with all the news and updates from me and Stampin' Up!



I decided to give this card a bit more of a shabby look so used one of our existing stamp sets, Timeless Textures plus roughed up the edges as well.  The actual effect on the card was made by stamping all over the Very Vanilla cardstock with Versamark then sprinkling pinches of white and clear embossing powder finally heat setting it with a heat tool. The Rose Red ink and So Saffron ink were applied roughly with a sponge dauber and blended to give the patchy look you can see on the close up photos.  Finally, a bit more stamping on the inside and I was done.


You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Lea Denton or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. 



You are going to love this new Annual Catalogue, I know I say it every year but this one is definitely the best ever!  Wait till you see the full catalogue... you will LOVE it!  If you have shopped with me in the past 12 months a catalogue will already be on the way to you.  If not, place an order and I'll pop one straight in the post to you.  Don't forget, at the moment you are visiting my blog, Lea Denton, and by clicking on the names below you will be able to see all the other gorgeous projects everyone has made for you to drool over.

If you just fancy a schmooze through my shop just CLICK HERE TO SHOP ONLINE NOW.  Please do remember that if your order is less than £150 to use this month’s Hostess Code which you will find at the top right of my blog below the tab navigation bar and at the bottom of each post.  At the end of each month I add up all the Hostess Codes that have been used, convert them to Stampin’ Rewards and divide this between everyone that has ordered for that month….. which means….. YOU will receive a little something lovely through the post at the beginning of the following month but ONLY if you've used the Hostess Code.  If your order is over £150 please don't use the code to make sure all the Stampin’ Rewards come directly to you (only individual orders in excess of £150 qualify for Stampin’ Rewards).

Blog Hopping with Kylie Bertucci and the Crazy Crafters - Eastern Palace Suite

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Lea Denton -
Blog Hopping with Kylie Bertucci and the Crazy Crafters Eastern Palace Suite


Wow... just WOW!  What an honour to be asked to be a Special Guest on the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop! The Crazy Crafters are led by the wonderful Kylie Bertucci (ranked 8th in the WORLD no less!) who contacted me a short while ago and asked if I would like to be the Special Guest on the Crazy Crafters May Blog Hop. Well what a silly question! Of course I would! 

Now the theme of the Blog Hop is to CASE ("Copy And Selectively Edit") a card that I have made in the past. Any card made at any time... change the colours, stamp set, dies used - anything really as long as it kind of resembles one I've made before. I get to do the same of course and settled on a Christmas card I made some time ago using the Embellished Ornaments Stamp Set & Dies which sadly retires at the end of May 2017 (there will be a set to buy in my upcoming BOGOF sale at the beginning of June though if you missed out getting yours in time.  The sale will be held on my Facebook Group - Crafting With Lea & Sacha and for every retired stamp set/dies/embellishments/ribbon etc you purchase you get to choose something of equal value from the new upcoming Annual Catalogue absolutely FREE!).  To the left you can see the card I chose to CASE originally made with gold glitter hanging baubles on a card base of pink toned Melon Mambo with a framing panel of purple toned Blackberry Bliss. Below you can see the original card next to the new card I've made using the fabulous early release Eastern Palace Suite of products.


See how it works? I've taken the original design, flipped it upside down, moved the sentiment to the opposite side and inverted the base colours :) The original card had a framing layer of purple toned Blackberry Bliss cardstock which was one of the In Colors from 2014-2016.  The new card has a card base of one of our new In Colors 2017-2019 the beautifully muted purple toned Fresh Fig.

 In Color 2017-2019 Club - See it now!

   

I've used the Gold Glimmer Paper again but this time underneath the die cut shape rather than on the top. Also did you notice the dry embossed line on the original card? The new card also has the line but as this new card doesn't have bauble to hang I've used the same ribbon to act as a frame for the card instead.

    


I cannot wait to see what the cards of mine the Crazy Crafters have used for their CASE! Click on the links below and you'll be able to see which ones they used too :)
