CTC123 – Easter

It’s been an exciting weekend for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world.  We have just had Onstage 2017 which is a fun time for demonstrators to get together, all at the same time throughout the world, and we have just seen the next Annual Catalogue!  Yes, I have a copy in my hot little hands!!  But I’m not sharing it with you just yet.  You’ll have to wait until 1 June.

I also got to catch up with some of the CTC Crew in Sydney which was great!  Nothing like meeting up in person.  Here’s Liz Gross and I.  Bronwyn Eastley and I were shopping and ran into Liz!!

 

So back with the program!!  We are casing Easter projects this week.

I was flipping through the Annual Catalogue (gee, I should do that more often) and I came across this cute acorn thank card on page 36.

I decided to case the card at the top.  I used the same Sparkle embossing folder with a whisper white cardstock base.  Instead of using burlap ribbon, I decided to use a piece of Wild Wasabi cardstock and cut it with the fringe scissors to make some grass.  I just love the Basket Bunch stamp set and the matching Basket Builder framelits.  The bunnies are just so cute!!

I stamped the bunny, eggs, birds and flowers in memento ink and cut them out with the framelits.  I coloured them using the blender pens and So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Marina Mist, Pool Party and Calyspo Coral ink.

To create the sentiment, I used a combination of stamp sets.  Happy is from Endless Birthday Wishes and Easter is from Crazy about You stamp set.

 

I’m hoping my nieces’ like the card as their Easter present will be inside!!  Not chocolate but tickets to a concert!!  Best.Auntie.Ever

Enjoy our hop this weekend!!  And Happy Easter!!

Next up is the gorgeous Kelly Kent!!

CTC114 – Sending Love

ctc_header

Can you believe we are in February already!!  The year is flying past so quick!  This week we are casing the Sending Love section, pages 14-19 of the 2017 Occasions catalogue.

Whilst it’s still a while away from Easter, I wanted to use the new Basket Bunch bundle as it’s soooo cute!!  I decided to case the card at the top of page 18.

I pretty much cased the whole card, except I coloured my flowers with the new water colour pencils for a softer look and I used a different sentiment from the set.

I just love that sentiment!! It’s so true!!  I love the little solid Cadbury eggs.  I added Stella to the flowers to make them stand out a bit more and added a candy dot to the centre.

Whilst I was making this one, I had the catalogue open and was inspired to also case the cross card on page 19.

I was drawn to the simple look with the dsp in the background.  I don’t have this set but I decided to use the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set and the Serene Scenery DSP from the Annual Catalogue.  I embossed in copper and added a strip of copper foil and the Very Vanilla satin ribbon behind the sentiment.

I’m happy with how it turned out.  Clean and simple!!
