Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you!!  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!!  I certainly did.  I must have been very good as Santa was very generous!

Since my two holidays, I feel like I have been playing catch up trying to get everything done that needed to get done before Christmas.  I didn’t quite make it with getting enough Christmas cards made so I’m sending Happy New Year cards as well this year!!

I was inspired on Pinterest by this gorgeous card by Create with Kaitlyn.  I wanted to use the Banners for Christmas stamp set as it had a Happy New Year stamp and the Banners for You stamp set as it had the flowers. I also changed the colours.  I often use My Create Ink to help me with colour combo’s if I have a couple of colours in mind but not sure what to put with them.  This time I had Whisper White and Sweet Sugar Plum and it suggested So Saffron, Pool Party and Mint Macaroon.


As I had a few to send, this was a nice and easy card to make lots of!!

Happy New Year!!  See you in 2017!!

CTC86 – Everyday Occasions


I’m back this week with CTC and I’m so excited that our new Crew members are hopping with us today.  Make sure you leave them a comment and welcome them to the Crew!!

We are caseing the Everyday Occasions section of the Annual Catalogue (pages 66-91).  This is a huge section, so I decided to case two cards.



My first card was inspired by the gorgeous Detailed Floral Thinlits on page 76.  They are so pretty and look amazing yet are so easy to create.


I love the white on white look but I decided to go with white and Emerald Envy.  I just love this green.  It’s a very easy card to create, just cut out the thinlits and attach to the background!!  Then stamp the sentiment and you are done!!  Or you might want to stamp your sentiment before attaching just in case there is a creative error!! Not that I did that!! As I love Emerald Envy so much, I added a ruched ribbon bow instead of twine and painted the whole card with Wink of Stella.


For my next card, I wanted to play with the Banners for You stamp set and co-ordinating bundle as it just arrived on Friday and I NEEEDED to play with it!!


I pretty much cased the whole card from page 78 and just added another layer of Mint Macaron as one of the background layers.  Sometimes the catalogue card is so pretty, why reinvent the wheel!!  The colours on the photograph have come out quite orange but the original is a lovely peach.


I haven’t had much opportunity to make cards for a few weeks, so I’ve really enjoyed making these!  I hope you like them too.  Make sure you continue to hop with my lovely friend, Simone.  You’ll love her project this week!!




Don’t forget that you can join in with our challenges each week!!  We announce the winner at the start of the following month.
