Stampin' Up! October Promotions - Lots On Offer!

Hello there!  It's October tomorrow and it is going to be one jam-packed month of fun! There's so much going on I decided I needed to give you the heads up early so you can get your game plan sorted! 

1)  We'll kick the month off with a World Card Making Day Event which runs through October 1-10. You'll get 15% off Note Cards & Envelopes and select stamp sets. You'll also get a Bonus Deal on Fast Fuse Adhesive. Buy one and get 2 refills FREE! Now that is a deal you won't want to miss! 

2) Next up is the DSP Sale which runs from October 1-31. Buy 3, Get 1 FREE! Choose from 13 packages, it's a great time to stock up!  

Here are the DSP packs that are on special this month.  It's a great time to get all your Christmas cards started or even think about upcoming events & special occasions.  Another great idea is splitting the deal with a friend - get one pack each & split the freebie!

 3) Last but not least we have a great hostess stamp set available FREE to those with a qualifying order! I absolutely love this set & can't wait to start creating with it! 

So you see, there are so many awesome deals happening in October, that you really need a plan of attack!   I will be placing an order soon, so if you would like to save on postage & live in my area contact me to add your order to mine.  You can also do an online order & have the item shipped direct to you.  This deal is running all month so I am happy to pop through an order at a time that suits you too.  

Happy October & World Card Making Day to you all!

CTC145 Merry Little Christmas Cards

Hi Everyone & welcome to another week of CASEing the Catty.  This week we are casing my very favourite section in the holiday catalgoue, the Merry Little Christmas section from pages 10-19.

I have chosen to make 3 cards from this section as I haven't joined in the fun for such a long time!  My 1st card I have chosen to case is the card on the string that nice lady is holding .... well I presume she is nice! 

This card has a shaker element to it however, I was after a quick card that incorporated all the elements of the Carols Of Christmas bundle, minus the shaker part.

Here is my card:

I have used the Card Front Builder framelits to make a nice little frame & then the Merry Little Christmas DSP as a background for my little black deer.  I have also cut out some trees using the spotty DSP too.   Now I have to admit, I am not a huge fan of green & black for Christmas but it is growing on me & it took everything in me not to add lots of red! 

For my second card, this little box took my fancy.  I was too lazy to make this box but I did take inspiration from it to make a card.

Here is my inspired card.  

Instead of using the bauble which was just too chunky for my card, I used some large pearls & the holly punch to add holly instead of the sprigs. It just goes to show that you don't have to have everything in the catalogue to case something!

While I was playing with this fun suite,  I figured I may as well make another card using the Everyday Label punch & the Merry Little Labels stamp set.

I had a lot of fun creating again & hope to be back in the swing of joining in the fun CASEing the Catty challenges in the future.  

Next on the hop is the lovely Julia, where I am sure you will find even more to inspire you.
