CTC126 – Mother’s Day

Congratulations to the winner and crew pick of last week’s challenge!  Did you know you can join in with us too?  All you have to do is join our Facebook group and share your project with us.  It’s that easy!!

We are getting ready for Mother’s Day and sharing a project inspired by the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue or the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

I was inspired by the card on the top left of page 69 using the Bunch of Blossoms bundle.

I went with a colour combo of Wisteria Wonder, Blushing Bride, Whisper White and a touch of Pear Pizzazz.  I didn’t want to use ribbon behind the flower so I created my own dsp using the Brushstrokes stamp set.  I should use it more often as it looks rather nice, if I do say so myself!!

I had to search hard through my stamp sets to find a Happy Mother’s Day one!  Luckily, Teeny Tiny Sentiments to the rescue!!  I also used the retiring Banner framelits, which I will miss as I am very challenged at cutting an even banner!!

And have you noticed something new?  The flower centre is the gorgeous new gold faceted gems!!  Aren’t they lovely!!  I’m so excited!!!!

Next up is the very talented Kelly Kent.

Don’t forgot to pop over to the Facebook group and join in!!

Happy Stamping

CTC88 – Everyday Occasions

ctc_header

Can you believe that we are almost at the end of July!!  Where is this year going!! I’m still waiting for winter to arrive, here in Queensland.  It was 28 degrees yesterday and I had on my t-shirt and shorts!!  It’s a bit cooler today but still feels like Autumn.

This week we are back casing the Everyday Occasions section of the 2016-2017 Annual catalogue from pages 66-91.

There are so many gorgeous cards to case!!  I love the Layering Love stamp set although I haven’t got it yet.  I was inspired by the card featuring this set on the top right of the picture.

I decided to use the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set for my card and I didn’t feel it was quite appropriate to make a shaker card like the sample.  I embossed the main card with the Sparkle embossing folder in Soft Sky cardstock, then cut out a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals framelits in So Saffron and then attached it to the front of the card.  I then cut out the oval on both layers.  I then stamped the sentiment in Soft Sky on a separate piece of cardstock and attached it from behind.  That way, I could make sure it was centred nicely!!

I then punched a few little flowers and leaves using the Blossom Builder punch and scrunched them up a bit to give some texture and attached them with glue dots.  And of course, there are a few of the teeny tiny pearls in the centre of the flowers.
