Today is a big day! The brand new 2017 Occasions Catalog is live AND it’s the first day of Sale-a-bration 2017!!! So for the Inspire, Create, Share January Blog Hop, we are highlighting products from the new Sale-a-bration brochure.

At the bottom of this post is the list of items from the 2016 Holiday Catalog that have been carried over to the Occasions Catalog.


Here’s what I made:

This funny chicken just makes my day. Talk about a bad hair day!


Here’s how I did it:

* Sale-a-bration item

I stamped the chicken from the *Hey, Chick stamp set, and the sentiment from the *Designer Tee stamp set, in Basic Black ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock.

I colored the chicken with the new Watercolor Pencils in Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, and Pumpkin Pie. I used an Aqua Painter to gently blend the colors. I probably should have used Shimmer White card stock, or a Blender Pen instead of an Aqua Painter, but I was very careful not to get it too wet.

I glued the stamped piece to a piece of *Carried Away Designer Series Paper. I also wrapped three pieces of Bermuda Bay ribbon around the DSP, adhering it on the back with Fast Fuse.

I glued the DSP to a piece of Whisper White card stock, and glued that to a Bermuda Bay card base. I also glued a piece of Whisper White CS to the inside of the card for a handwritten note. (Or you could write on the card base with a white pen.)
