Kre8tors Blog Hop - Goodbye Occassions Catalogue

Today I'm back with my fellow Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators, sharing our creativity globally through our Kre8tors Blog Hop group.   You're currently visiting Sandra, here in Norfolk, UK, with a very warm welcome.

Our theme this month is "Goodbye Occasions Catalogue", sadly featuring items that will retire at the end of this month.  If you see anything along your hop today that you would like to purchase, I would urge you to contact your local Demonstrator quickly, as many products are now 'whilst stocks last'.
My first card has been very popular, simply punching out different patterns from the True Gentleman Designer Series Papers #145651.  Here I have also punched some from coordinating cardstock and textured with Embossing Folders.  Whilst the  DSP is retiring, the Tailored Tag punch is carrying over into the new catalogue and so this layout idea can be repeated in many different colour collections.
My background of my next card was stamped repeatedly using the Truly Tailored stamp set #145732 (W) 145735 (C).  The Night of Navy card base was stamped in Night of Navy to create a Watermark effect.  The sparkling splashes were created by flicking Wink of Stella Glitter Brush #141897 over the entire surface. 

The 'DAD' sentiment from Truly Tailored stamp set, was stamped in Versamark ink pad #102283 and sprinkled with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder #109129 and heat set.  This was punched with the Truly Tailored punch, mounted on Stampin' Dimensionals #104430 onto mounted onto Gold Foil sheets #132622, cutting free-hand, leaving a slight border.  Attach a couple of pieces of Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon #145597, adding the sentiment on top.

My last card today is my favourite, another fancy fold card.  With the pockets on both the front and the inside, it reminded me a bit of a waistcoat pocket !  A fabulous idea for gift vouchers.
