Welcome back to another week at CTC!! The year is already going so quickly already!!
Our new home for our challenges is on the CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge Group and it’s going off!! We are getting lots of entries to our challenges, which is so exciting!! I love seeing how everyone interprets the catalogue projects!! If you would like to join us over there, click here.
This week, we are casing the Cupcakes and Carousels section, pages 8 – 13 of the Occasions Catalogue.
I decided to case the birthday candle shaker card from the Birthday Bright Project Kit on page 13. This is a lovely kit which I made up for my Pop for Christmas.
I was inspired by one of the entries in last week’s challenge by Kate Gardiner, who used the very cute SAB Carried Away DSP. (Did you know you can get this paper for free?)
I started with the Night of Navy cardstock for the base and added the scalloped dsp. I then started on the balloon shaker. I cut out 2 balloons, one Whisper White and one Watermelon Wonder. I only wanted the outline of the white one, so I’ve kept the balloon for another project. I added a piece of window sheet on the back and used the foam adhesive strips around the balloon shape. I then punched out lots of stars using my star punch and added some Dazzling diamonds to the mix. I then added another piece of window sheet over the top and then turned it over and shook it all around. I may have got a bit excited about the glitter!!
Make sure you stamp on the white piece before you make the shaker. (As me how I know!!) I stamped the clouds from the Lift Me Up stamp set and the you from Crazy about you
Then attach your layers to the base card. I also cut out the happy from the Hello You thinlits using Peekaboo Peach.
I do love a shaker card!! You might have noticed that!!
Next on the hop is the lovely Kathryn.
Don’t forget to come and join us at CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge!! We’d love you to join in!!
