CTC#165 - more Sale-a-Bration amazingness!

Welcome back for another week CASEing the amazing pages of the Sale A Bration Brochure. I'm away on holidays next week so wanted to make sure I wouldn't miss too many episodes- and besides it's a great reason to excuse myself form the dishes and get crafting! 
The Celebrate YOu Thinlits are beautiful- and best of all they WILL be continuing in the next catalogue. The stampset which matches will not be continuing however so make sure to order yours if you love it as much as I do.
For this card I wanted to use all 3 thinlits and I CASEd the card on the bottom of page 17,

I didn't have enough time to cut out 3 or 4 of the celebrate and cut them into blocks of letters for the ombre effect they describe in the brochure. Instead I cut one word from Sahara Sand and using paper as a mask I sponged it lightly with a dauber using increasing intensity of Berry Burst Ink. To make the word stand out a little I cut a second word from Copper and adhered the 2 slightly offset to get a hint of copper behind the word. I did the same for the YOU. I also sponged the Tranquil Tide tone on tone to darken it, and to make the Celebrate lift a little off the page I place a strip of vellum behind. The copper roses are heat embossed using the Petal Palette set and painted with my favourite tool - the aqua painter.

Following me this week is Bec

and Before me this week is Rachel

  1. This is so pretty Liz. I really like the copper embossed roses. Think I must take your lead and do some heat embossing.

  2. Lovely card Liz. From the gold embossing with the colouring to the ombré sentiment.... Everything is just lovely.

  3. Great card Liz - love how the vellum softens the background and makes that word really POP!

  4. Great card Liz. I love the shadow effect the copper foil has given to the word "celebrate".

  5. Fantastic Ombré effect and the copper is stunning with these colours.

  6. I love how you have incorporated all three dies in your card with the floral background Elizabeth :-)

  7. I love the copper behind Celebrate, it looks stunning! And have a lovely holiday!
