Aim For Alaska Blog Hop - Catalogue Sneak peek



Image may contain: mountain, sky, outdoor, nature and water


Hello everyone and welcome once again to KOCreations Cards 😊 

Today I am taking part in a special group blog hop - The 'Aim for Alaska' blog hop. 
This is a Face Book training group for Stampin' Up!® demonstrators that is available through Kylie Bertucci to help you achieve your goals of the incentive trip and more...
What is that saying "Reach for ther stars!" Well I am reaching and aiming high! It might take me a few years but I am determined to achieve this one day!
To help us Kylie invites prominent and succesful SU demonstrators to talk about their experiences and share what has worked/not worked for them. This is one of the things that I most enjoy, learning from those that have been there and seen what works and also what doesn't. We get to learn from their experience PLUS they are willing to share the information!
 If you want to join this group please use this link SIGN ME UP FOR AIM FOR ALASKA TRAINING GROUP

I have a list of other blog hop particopants closer to the end of my blog.
You are currently here with me Kim Oliver (Australia)

Okay enough chit chat 😆 on to the reason for the blog hop. 
The new 2017-2018 catalogue release and some of the gorgeous products soon to be released!!!

  1. The new 'Colour Theory' DSP (144194) This comes in four glorious colours blended with Whisper White. Those colours are Berry Burst, Old Olive (which I have used for my card), Crushed Curry and Dapper Denim.
  2. I have also used the new Daisy Delight stamp set (143669) I am LOVING this!!
  3. My card base is Old Olive  card stock (106576) folded in half and cut at 10.5cm.
  4. I have used another NEW PRODUCT the Mini Chevron ribbon in co-ordinating Old Olive (144196)


On a side note, I am currently playing with a new watermark (above) compared to the old one (below) I would love some feedback if you can spare some time...TIA

METHOD

For my card front using crackled DSP, I first glued thick Whisper White to the back of it. I then trimmed it to size. I used my Stitched Shapes Framleits to cut out my focal window, but making sure I had the Whisper White face up. This way the stitches are visible and help to frame my stamped images.
I then nested a layering Oval with the Stiched shape oval and cut a Old Olive frame for my focal area.

I stamped my images onto the whisper white side. 
I placed my ribbon onto the card front and I adhered it all onto the card base using dimensionals. 
I then glued the stamped images into place straight onto the card base..
