Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop | Theme: 2020 Mini and Sale-A-Bration Catalogues - Part 2

Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop. This month we will be sharing projects inspired by the newly released 2020 Mini Catalogue and the 2020 Sale-A-Bration Catalogues. The full line up below will guide you through all the projects.

My project today includes 2020 Mini Catalogue products from the Birthday Bonanza Suite (which you'll find on page 32 of the catalogue) and some products from the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue.

The layout for my project was inspired by the latest CASEing the Catty challenge #CTC260.

I CASE'd the cute Koala confetti card below, that can be found on page 20 of the 2020 Mini Catalogue.

My project also fits in with this weeks Global Design Project GDP223 Theme Challenge.


My card base is Whisper White Thick, to which I adhered a sheet of DSP from the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper Pack.

Using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits, I cut out a Whisper White rectangle. Then using the Bonanza Buddies stamp set, I stamped the presents in 3 different colours (see below for the colours used in each card). The Koala was stamped using Gray Granite ink and the ribbon, balloon strings and Koala face were all stamped in Memento Black ink.

The sentiment also comes from the Bonanza Buddies stamp set and was stamped in Memento Black ink on either Coastal Cabana or Petal Pink (depending on the card) and was then punched out using the Tailored Tag Punch.

Using the same colours as the presents on each card, I die cut out cardstock balloons using the die from the Bonanza dies set.

The balloons and sentiment were adhered to my cards using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

Which one is your favourite? The Bluey Green one or the Pinky Orange one?

Colours used in this card: Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana & Pool Party

Colours used in this card: Calypso Coral, Grapefruit Grove & Petal Pink
