CTC157 – Case a Colour Combo

ctc_header

Can you believe that in only 3 weeks, we will be preparing for the best day of the year!!  Can’t wait!!  (Although I have so much to do between now and then!!)

This week, we are casing a colour combo from either the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue or the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

I’m still needing Christmas cards, so I turned to the 2017 Holiday catalogue.  I decided to go with a non-traditional combination which I found on page 35.

Isn’t silver and Pool Party amazing!

I don’t usually start with the end in mind (well, except for the fact that it will be a card! lol!) and today was no exception!  I decided to use the embossing paste and coloured it with a few drops of Pool Party ink.  I also added in a bit of dazzling diamonds glitter.   I then remembered that I got some Silver embossing paste in my pre-order of the 2018 Occasions catalogue, so I decided to give it a go as well.  As I’m needing a few more cards, I made two of each base.

The silver is a slightly different texture to the regular embossing paste and it took a bit longer to dry.

Whilst I was waiting for the bases to dry, I had a look through my Christmas framelits.  I decided to go with the retiring Quilt Builder framelits.  I haven’t actually used the framelit which embossing quilting lines so I decided to make that my feature.  And it looks amazing on silver foil!! The flower is also from the same set of framelits.

To create the banner at the bottom, I used the dotty thinlit from the Swirly Snowflakes thinlits and added a strip of white cardstock down the middle, which I stamped with the sentiment from the Merry Patterns stamp set.

CTC147 – Christmas Around the World

Well Summer has hit with a vengeance!!  It’s 27.5 degrees today but it feels hotter.  What is Summer going to be like!!

We are casing the Christmas Around the World section, pages 28-35 of the 2017 Holiday catalogue.

As I was flipping through the pages of this weeks’ section, I got excited to see that it included the Snowflake Sentiments bundle!

I’ve recently purchased this set so this was my first opportunity to try it out.  I am casing the box on page 35 but making it as a card.

I had a couple of attempts and it took me a while to punch out the little pieces!  There’s a lot of confetti happening at my place today!

I used the Be Merry DSP from the Annual Catalogue for the strip across the middle.    I also love the sentiments in this stamp set especially the large Season’s Greeting.

Once I got all the little pieces out, this card actually didn’t take too long to put together.

Next up is the lovely Rose.
