CTC185 – Best Route


As I write this post, it’s just started to rain!  YAY!!  We have had a fun week with water.  Last weekend, our water tanks ran dry and we had to get a delivery of water.  After drinking tank water for 11 years, I can really tell the difference!!  Blerk!!

Can you believe that we have only had the new catalogue for a month?  Doesn’t it seem like it came out ages ago?  Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like this year is just zooming past.

We are casing the Best Route section, pages 52-65 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.  I love the Best Route DSP and all the gorgeous accessories that go with it, like the enamel shapes, washi tape and the Maps Etc embossing folder.


I chose to case one of the cards on page 65 (but not the kitty one!).  I went with the pink one at the back. 


The Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty DSP is simply stunning.  You can do so much with this paper.  There are 6 distinct patterns which can be used on with the Delightfully Detailed Note cards and envelopes.  And then there are full sheets which can be cut out, which I have done for this card.  I coloured it using markers with Powder Pink and Soft Sea Foam.

I wanted to use a new colour, so I went with Highland Heather as the background which I stamped using the little crosses from the Stitched All Around stamp set.

I then sponged the back of the cut out with Multi purpose glue and carefully placed it onto the background.

I cut out a scallop circle from the Layering Circle framelits in Soft Sea Foam and the circle from the Stitched Labels framelits in Powder Pink.  I stamped the thank you stamp from Stitched All Around stamp set twice, once in Powder Pink and in Highland Heather and then cut out the thank you and layered it over the pink.

I added a piece of the polka dot tulle ribbon behind the circle which has a nice little bit of sparkle in it.


Next up is the lovely Julia.


I hope you can share your creation this week with us at our Facebook page.


Happy Stamping
