CTC142 – Love & Sympathy

We’ve had another try of winter today, but I think it might a last blast of the season!  At least I hope so!

We are back casing the Love and Sympathy section of the 2017 -2018 Annual Catalogue, pages 86-101.

This time, I decided to case the card on the left on page 97 featuring the Ribbon of Courage bundle.

I wanted to do a different colour combination so I went to My Create Ink to suggest a combo for me.  I went with Berry Burst, Pear Pizzazz and Powder Pink.

I did a wash of Berry Burst for the background.  I then used Berry Burst for the sentiment which comes from the Ribbon of Courage set.  I then cut out lots of flowers and leaves using Flourish thinlits.  I didn’t actually use them all but I had them just in case.

I also used the Pear Pizzazz Shimmer ribbon which is so pretty.  I added a few pearls to cover the centres of the flowers.

Next up is my lovely friend, Julia!  You’ll love what she has created for us.

Come and join in with us and share your projects of the Love and Sympathy section of the catalogue at our Facebook Group here.

Happy Stamping

Oh, how I love a good box!!!

I love all things 3d really but especially boxes, so I was excited to see that this week’s Case-ing the Catty challenge was the Gift Packaging section of the catalogue. There are lots of great packaging options in the catalogue from bags, boxes and more.

I decided to make 2 projects this week. For my first project, I thought I would case the box on page 65 of the catalogue. (It has a silver doily on it, so I was sold!!)

But I decided to not make a box, but try a bag made with the new Gift Bag punch board. I decided to add a flap to the top of the bag so that it would have a closure and the tag could be attached to it.

I reversed the colours used from the sample and went with a piece of dotty Melon Mambo from the Brights Collection DSP stack. I hope you like my gift bag!

Here’s a close up of the flap.

For my second project, I wanted to try the hamburger box on page 61. Only one problem, I don’t have the Hamburger box die. So I got out my trusty gift box punch board and a piece of the Color Me Irresistible Specialty DSP and 60 seconds later, voila, I had a box!!

To make the flower, I used a piece of whisper white envelope paper. It’s a lighter paper which made it easier to work with. I cut out a number of petals from the Bouquet Bigz L die, and curved them slightly with my bone folder. I then stuck the petals together with glue dots. You can use either tombow glue or hot glue but I didn’t want to make a big mess and I was in a hurry to get it done! I also cut the black flower centre from the die. I attempted to make the yellow flower centre but as you can see, there’s a pearl in the middle. Less said about that, the better!!

Now I have to mention, I had a bit of trouble getting a good photo of the box, so please excuse my photos!!

Here’s one looking down through the top of my light box.

6 August 2013 – It’s a Medley!!

It’s been a few weeks since I posted but life has been a bit crazy lately and I just haven’t had time to post.

I wanted to showcase the gorgeous Modern Medley DSP and I found this lovely card on Pinterest by Linda Gutierrez here.

I didn’t have the same stamp set so I used one of my new favourite flower stamps, Stippled Blossoms. I love this set!!

Have I also mentioned that I love framelits and matching stamp sets!! and the new magnetic platform!! Words do not describe how fabulous it is. I love it!! So much better than using post-it notes.
