CTC117 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

I hope you are enjoying all the amazing Sale-a-bration stamps and products!  Especially given the fact that they are all free!!

We are caseing the Sale-a-bration catalogue again this week, pages 12-15.

ctc117-fb-2

I was inspired by the card in the middle on page 12, featuring the Tasty Trucks stamp set.

ctc117-bec-c

I decided to use the new Sale-a-bration stamp set, Make a Medallion as I hadn’t inked it up yet.  I also wanted to use the Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper (which is also a new SAB freebie).  I went to the My Creak Ink site and put in Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White and it came up a few suggestions.  I decided to go with Sweet Sugarplum, Mint Macaron, Whisper White and Island Indigo.

I used the same Sparkle embossing folder as it’s cute.  I then stamped the medallions using Island Indigo and Mint Macaron and the sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum.  To cut out the circles, I used the Layering Circle famelits.  I just love the scallops!!

Here’s a close up of the circle. It’s so sparkly!!

Colour INKspiration CI04

It’s been an exciting fortnight seeing all the amazing entries for the last colour challenge.  Congratulations to the winners!!

I found the next challenge to be, well a little challenging!  The combination this week is Elegant Eggplant, Crushed Curry, Delightful Dijon and Whisper White.

ci04-challenge

I went to my stash only to find that I had completely run out of Elegant Eggplant cardstock!! How does that happen!!  So I turned to another purple instead, Wisteria Wonder.

I never really create a card with an end result in mind.  I wanted to use the gorgeous So Detailed thinlits and of course, I knew the colours I was going to use.  I decided to create a water coloured background with the three colours. I then cut out the thinlits in Delightful Dijon, and trimmed off the edges.  I sponged the back in tombow glue and attached it to the watercoloured piece.

I love the Stitched Shape framelits and decided they would make a great feature for the sentiment, which comes from the So in Love stamp set.  Did you know that you can get the So Detailed thinlits and the So in Love stamp set as a bundle and save 10%.

ci04-bec

I can’t wait to see what you all create with this combo!

Next up is the very talented Liz Gross.  You are going to love her card!!

CTC115 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

I hope you are surviving the heat this weekend!  It’s so hot here, around 40 degrees Celsius!  We are camped out in the kitchen/lounge area with the air conditioning on.

ctc115-fb

We are back to casing the Sale-a-bration catalogue with week, pages 8-12.  This has a couple of my favourite freebies so it was hard to decide which one to do!!  I love the Delicate Details stamp set but apparently so do a few others in the Crew so I went with my other favourite, the Inside the Lines DSP.

ctc115-bec-c

For my first card, I cased the card in the top left corner with the flowers.  I did it very similar although I coloured the flowers in Peeakaboo Peach and used Old Olive patterned DSP.  I think the longest part to this card was cutting out the flowers!  Fussy cutting is not my favourite thing!  Oh, and I used markers to colour the flowers.

ctc115-bec-a

For my second card, I wanted to showcase the floral pattern piece of the DSP.  I used a few elements from a couple of the cards on this page.  I put vellum underneath the Thanks so that it stood out more.  And here’s a sneak peak of an upcoming SAB freebie, the Bermuda Bay glimmer paper!!  It comes in a pack with Mint Macaroon and Sweet Sugarplum in a 6″x6″ size, with 4 pieces of each colour.    This glimmer paper and two more stamp sets will be available on 21 February.

I’m glad I only did a small piece of this dsp.  Every time I coloured in with another watercolour pencils, I found a leaf that I had missed!!  But I think I got them all in the end.

ctc115-bec-b

I hope you enjoyed my cards this week.  Next up is the talented Kelly.  I always love to see what she has created!!

Here are our colours for this week – Soft Sky, Soft Suede, Peekaboo Peach, Marina Mist and Whisper White.  You can also add in a few neutrals, like basic black, crumb cake or any metallic.

ci03

I decided to use a sketch to help me along, so I went to my favourite sketch site, Mojo Monday.  I liked their current sketch, 482,  so decided to use that one.

mpjp482

I love the Pretty Kitty stamp set and I thought the kitties would be perfect for the squares.  I love all the layering framelits and that the Stitched Shapes framelits match them perfectly.  Without further ado, here’s my card!

ci03-bec-a

I even made an envelope!!  Here’s a close up of the kitties.  I used blender pens to colour them in.

CTC114 – Sending Love

ctc_header

Can you believe we are in February already!!  The year is flying past so quick!  This week we are casing the Sending Love section, pages 14-19 of the 2017 Occasions catalogue.

ctc114-fb

Whilst it’s still a while away from Easter, I wanted to use the new Basket Bunch bundle as it’s soooo cute!!  I decided to case the card at the top of page 18.

ctc114-bec-d

I pretty much cased the whole card, except I coloured my flowers with the new water colour pencils for a softer look and I used a different sentiment from the set.

ctc114-bec-b

I just love that sentiment!! It’s so true!!  I love the little solid Cadbury eggs.  I added Stella to the flowers to make them stand out a bit more and added a candy dot to the centre.

ctc114-bec-e

Whilst I was making this one, I had the catalogue open and was inspired to also case the cross card on page 19.

ctc114-bec-c

I was drawn to the simple look with the dsp in the background.  I don’t have this set but I decided to use the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set and the Serene Scenery DSP from the Annual Catalogue.  I embossed in copper and added a strip of copper foil and the Very Vanilla satin ribbon behind the sentiment.

ctc114-bec-a

I’m happy with how it turned out.  Clean and simple!!

Next on the hop is the amazing Rachel Palmieri so make sure you check out her project!

CTC113 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

It was a big week with most kids heading back to school and everyone getting back into “normal” routines.  Even though it was a short week as everyone had the day off to celebrate my birthday!! (or maybe, Australia Day!!)  I had a lovely day celebrating with friends, having a picnic at Wynnum Wading Pools.

This week we are caseing the Sale-a-bration catalogue, and specifically pages 4 to 7.

 

ctc113-fb

I couldn’t decide what to do!!  I eventually decided to case the balloon card at the top of page 7.

ctc113-bec-b

I just love this dsp!!  Isn’t it nice!  And you can get it for free when you spend $90.  But I didn’t use this paper as I’ve just bought the Oh So Succulent stamp set and matching Succulent framelits and I HAD to use it. (You know what I mean!!)

I used the Succulent Garden DSP as the base layer then stamped and cut the flowers.  It’s my 16th wedding anniversary this week, so I used the love sentiment from the stamp set.  I’m sure my husband will appreciate the flowers and glitter on the card!!  lol!

Next on the hop is the lovely Kelly Kent.

CI02 – Colour INKspiration

Welcome to our second challenge for Colour INKspiration!!  The first challenge was amazing, we had over 100 entries!!  Well done to everyone who joined in.

Here is the colour inspiration for this week.  We have Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky, Mint Macaron, Whisper White and Garden Green.  You can also use a couple of neutrals like basic black, crumb cake etc.

ci02-challenge

I decided to make a gift box using the new Window Box thinlits die.  It is soooo pretty!!  I love how it comes with different inserts so you can change the look of the box easily.  I really love the cut out for the top so I used that on my box.  I created my flowers using the Botanical Builder framelits.  I sponged them for some texture and painted them all over with Wink of Stella.  The photos don’t show just how shiny it is!!

I then just added a bow to dress up the front and side of the box.  I’m not sure who the lucky recipient of this box is but maybe I should give it to my husband so that he can put my birthday present in it!!  Although he might need more than one box (hint hint, nudge nudge).
