CTC166 – Painted with Love

ctc_header

After another sweltering week in Queensland, (including a fun hot day with no power!!), we are back casing the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  This week, it’s the Painted with Love section, pages 18-21.

The Painted with Love Specialty DSP is simply stunning!  There is gold foil accents on one side of every sheet.

But I decided to create a project from one of the other pages, the Lovely frame on page 20.

I haven’t used the Just Add Color DSP much and I really like the teapot page.  I just love blue and white china so I decided to colour my teapots using the Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends. I coloured the flowers in a variety of the blends.

I used a piece of the Whisper White Organza Ribbon behind a piece of vellum.  I used the Large Letter dies to create the Home sentiment.

Once I had created my piece, I went looking for a square frame.  I’m sure I have one in a safe place, but it’s so safe, I can’t find it!!

Next up on the hop is the fabulous Peta!

Welcome back to another Colour Challenge with Colour Inkspiration!  And Happy Valentine’s Day!  Hope you taking the opportunity to tell your loved ones how much you love them.

We have a really lovely combination for you this week with Powder Pink, Melon Mambo, Pool Party and Island Indigo.

ci27Whenever I get ready to create my card for a colour challenge, I get out all the colours in cardstock for inspiration.  I then decide upon the stamp set and go from there.  So I started with the Butterfly from the Beautiful Da stamp set.  I embossed in silver embossing powder on watercolour paper and then coloured with my aqua painter, using Powder Pink, Melon Mambo and Pool Party.

I then layered the card base of Island Indigo with Powder Pink and the watercolour background.  I then cut out a scallop circle and a stitched circle and stamped the sentiment from the Sale-a-bration Happy Wishes stamp set, which I then embossed in silver.

I added a Powder Pink shimmer ribbon behind the circles.

I hope you are inspired by my card today.  Head on over to Monique for more inspiration!

CTC165 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

Can you believe that we are mid-February already!!  We are almost halfway through Sale-a-bration!

Luckily we are still casing the SAB catalogue this week so get ready for lots of inspiration!

ctc165-fb

I decided to case one of the peacock cards on page 7 of the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.

ctc165-bec-a

I kept pretty similar to the original although I did the background card in Lemon Lime Twist and used the Burlap stamp to create some texture on the background.   I stamped the peacock from the Beautiful Peacock stamp set, in Bermuda Bay and Fresh Fig.

I used the Eastern Medallion thinlits which I had forgotten was so lovely!  I hand cut the peacock and added a few of the clear epoxy shapes on the tail.

I then added some of the glittery Myths & Magic Specialty washi tape across the bottom and made a little banner using the sentiment from the Beautiful Peacock stamp set.

Playing with Brusho

I recently purchased the new Brusho Crystal Colours which came out in the 2018 Occasions catalogue and I love it!!

At first, I thought it looked too hard and wasn’t for me.  But then I watched a few videos and decided that maybe I could!

I used watercolour paper and had a play with all the colours.  I put a few small holes in the top of the container and sprinkled a bit of the colour onto the paper.  I then spritzed it with water and let the colours blend.  Wow is all I can say!!

brusho

To create the two blue pieces, I had sprinkled quite a lot of blue brusho on the paper and spritzed it a lot.  As it was quite wet, I decided to put a second piece on top of it to soak up the colour.  I’m pretty happy how both pieces turned out.

So I’ve created two cards out of these pieces so far.

I used the red piece (which looks a bit pink) and cut out the flowers from the Petals and More thinlits.  Aren’t they so pretty?

brusho-2

My second card features the butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set.  I embossed it in silver embossing powder and then started with the yellow brusho powder and spritzed it.  Once the colours started to blend, I then added more of the red powder and let it do it’s magic.

The sentiment on the banner is also from the Beautiful Day set.

brusho-1

I’m so happy with these and I can’t wait to play more!  If you would like to have a play, I recommend just diving in and giving it a try.  What’s the worst that can happen?

I hope you have a great week!!

Happy Stamping

CTC164 – Occasion Kits

ctc_header

We’ve finally had a couple of cooler days over the weekend, which has been lovely!!

This week we are casing the Occasion Kits section, pages 15-17, of the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.

ctc164-fb

There are only a few projects to choose from which made it a bit easier to pick one!!

I cased one of the cards from the Perennial Birthday Project Kit.  This is a gorgeous kit and the box is to die for!!  I may have bought it just for the box!!  I am casing the pink card on page 16.

ctc164-bec-e

I used the card bases from the free Tutti-Frutti cards and envelopes that you can earn during Sale-a-bration.  You get 16 cards and envelopes in the pack with 4 cards of each of the 4 colours.  In keeping with the tutti frutti theme, I used the Lots of Labels framelits and cut out the largest frame in the Tutti Frutti DSP stack.

I then cut out a banner in co-ordinating card stock and used my favourite punch, the Triple banner punch.

I used the Bunch of Banner framelits to cut out another banner and stamped it with the birthday sentiment from the Fruit Basket stamp set.

Congrats on your baby!

I wanted to try out another one of Bronwyn Eastley’s fabulous tutorials as they are fabulous and so easy to follow.  You can check them all out here.

Addinktive Design team button - December 2017

I love the Baby Crib Z Fold card, so I decided to have a play with it using current products.

Once I had decided on the card, I had a look through my stamp sets only to find that I only have a few baby sets!  Crisis!!  But then I realised that the new Amazing Congratulations stamp set from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue does have baby sentiments so I was excited to use it.  I wanted to use the Naturally Eclectic DSP as it’s so pretty and perfect for a baby card.

The congratulations stamp is quite large but it just fits across the card.  I used Peekaboo Peach and Pumpkin Pie ink to create the shades and then I hand cut the word out.  Nothing like a bit of fussy cutting!

CTC163 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

Happy Australia Day!!  Hope you had a lovely day on January 26, celebrating all things Aussie!!  Australia Day is actually my birthday, so we always do something!  This year, we had a nice day pottering around home, and then out to dinner and ice cream with friends.

This week, we are casing the Sale-a-bration catalogue.  You can choose any of the wonderful projects to case.

ctc-163-fb

I decided to case one of the cards on the cover of the catalogue, the Calypso Coral Amazing You card on the right.

ctc163 - bec b

I pretty much cased it as is but I changed the colours.  I used the Fresh Florals DSP paper stack and the Powder Pink print.  There’s a lot of subtle details on this card, from the flowers stamped on the background, the silver embossed star burst, the embossed flowers and gentle colouring of the flowers. Then there’s the vellum banner, the twine across the back and the gorgeous amazing you thinlit cut out.  Oh and of course a few rhinestones!!

ctc163 - bec a

I’ve been trying to do more simpler cards this year, but I really think my heart lies with the detailed ones!!

Next up on the hop is the lovely Monique.
