Happy New Year to you all! Were you able to catch up with family and friends over Christmas and New Year?

Unfortunately, like so many others, Covid put our Christmas, New Year and the birthdays of several family members on hold, but fingers crossed, we will hopefully be able to celebrate them all soon.

On the bright side, there has been a HUGE advantage of having to isolate at home … more time in my craft room to get organised and to play with some of the exciting new products from two new catalogues that launch today!

2022 January-June Mini & SALE-a-bration catalogues

The 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue and the Sale-a-bration catalogue both launch today. If you are one of my customers you should have received a paper copy of each of these catalogues sent by me. If you haven’t received one, please get in touch and I will pop one in the post to you.

Covid has had a huge impact on worldwide shipping and like so many retailers everywhere, Stampin’ Up! is being impacted with delays. This means there are a still a few items from both catalogues that we are still waiting on – they are showing as unavailable in the store. I’ll keep you updated as they come into stock.

You can view and purchase all the new January – June 2022 mini catalogue products HERE in my online store or you can view or download the catalogue to a device HERE. 

Saleabration also starts today and goes through until the end of February. During this time, you can earn free products with shopping and there is a great joining deal where you get an extra 2 free stamp sets of YOUR choice, in addition to the already great value starter kit.

How Awesome are these Otters?

One of the SALE-a-bration items that is available now is the Awesome Otters stamp set. If you spend $90 or more you can chose this exclusive Sale-A-Bration item for FREE! 

I’ve made a super simple card with these otters by using an easy but so effective colouring technique known as “dot colouring” or the “pointillism technique”.

Pointillism was a revolutionary painting technique pioneered by Georges Seurat and Paul Signac in Paris in the mid-1880s and it is such a fun effect to use on cards as well.

The Stampin’ Up! colours I used are: Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Poppy Parade, Fresh Freesia, Bermuda Bay and a touch of Gray Granite for his tummy! You simply use the narrow end of your Stampin’ Blend! to add dots to around the otter, making the dots closer and darker nearer the stamped image.

The “HAPPY” was made using the Playful Alphabet dies. I adhered some Basic White card stock to foam adhesive sheets, die cut the word “HAPPY” and then coloured each letter using bright Stamping Blends colours.

One of the other otters was used to decorate the inside of the card and the envelope too.

The “birthday” sentiment on the card front is part of the longer “It’s birthday time” sentiment that I’ve stamped onto the envelope – I simply cut away the other words and mounted it onto a scrap of Basic Black cardstock.

I’ll be back with the Art with Heart Colour Creations team at 8pm (AEST) tomorrow night to showcase Mossy Meadow. I’ll be using two more FREE SALE-a-bration products for my cards and. I can’t wait to share these cards with you!

You can purchase all the products I’ve used in this card in my online store 24/7 and don’t forget to use my January Host code when placing an order over $50 (January 2022 Host Code is 4EMV7CCW) to receive your FREE embellishments.

Wherever you are in the world, stay safe, stay calm … and keep on crafting xxx
