Stampin' Up! Saleabration and Occasions 2016 Sneak Peek. Hello stamp set and Botanical Builders Framelits

Hello. Today I have another sneak peek for you. I've used the Hello stamp set which is one of Stampin' Up!'s free stamp sets available to earn during Saleabration 2016 which starts on January 5th (this one is one of the limited time sets so only available until February 15th). I have also used the Botanical Builders Framelits (part of the Botanical suite of products in the Occasions 2016 Catalogue). Love the detail in these!

The greeting in the centre I actually gold embossed. It's a bit hard to catch in the image above, so here is a side on. How cute are the gold Bow Paper Clips? These are another of the cute embellishments in the Occasions 2016 Catalogue.

The Botanical Builder Framelits are AMAZING! Our most detailed flower / leaf Framelits ever. I particularly love the fern Framelit and all the bits and pieces which go in the flower centres. A couple of the flowers have pop up bits too which give fabulous dimension.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Cuties Stamp Set - Great for Colouring & Retiring Soon

Welcome friends.

Today I have a watercoloured image from  very cute stamp set that is in the 2015 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue, called Christmas Cuties.

Stampin Up Christmas Cuties stamp set Christmas card by Claire Daly SU Demonstrator Australia

My base card is Tip Top Taupe, and I have used perfect Plum and watercolour paper as well. My colouring is done with a Blender Pen, picking up the ink inside the lid of my Crumb Cake and Almost Amethyst ink pads.

I have also used Wink of Stella clear glitter brush, a great product that we will be stocking from the launch of the Occasions Catalogue in January. This product is AWESOME, as you can brush on the subtle glimmer, and it doesn't at all change the ink colour underneath. Here's a view which shows the shimmer much better.

There's also another two very cute images to colour in this stamp set. Sadly this stamp set will only be available until January 4th or until sold out, so if you like it, you can get it HERE.

Thanks for popping in today. I hope you have a great day,

Claire
