CTC38 – It really is a Challenge!!

This week’s CTC Challenge really is a challenge for me! I have only one of the sets in this week’s Kids section and the card is pretty similar to last week’s one so I wanted to try something different.

I thought I would case a couple of the cards on page 44 of the catalogue.

I decided to use the Giggle Greetings stamp set and do a spot of colouring!! I think this set is funny but I don’t use it often enough.

So for my first card, I used the kitty stamp and my colouring was inspired by my cute little boy, Jaster. Isn’t he cute!!

So here is my first card.

For the second card, I used the dog stamp. I used markers and put a splotch of colour onto a clear block then used my blender pens to lift up the colour. I used the star from the Be the Star stamp set for the background.

CTC06 – You are a star!!!

I have just bought the Stars framelits and I am in love! They are very nice!! I had bought the Be the Star stamp set and forgotten to get the matching framelits (tell me, how does that happen!!). So when the current Big Shot special included a Holiday stamp set and the star framelits for 15% off, I snapped them up straight away!!

So I was hanging out to try them on this week’s project for Caseing the Catty. We are up to the Kids section of the catalogue and I thought I would try the project on page 93 of the AU/NZ catalogue.

BUT, I didn’t have a jar, so I decided to try it as a card. I like to use the Colour coach to help choose a colour combo and I went with Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party. I used the new Hearts & Stars decorative mask and white staz-on on a piece of Window Sheet and let it dry. I then got out my new framelits (actually they hadn’t even hit the shelf yet) and cut out the silver glimmer paper stars. Then I used the star template from the Eclectic paper-piercing pack to go around the star. I found that I had to go over it without the template to get a deep hole that you could see.

What do you think?

It doesn’t even have to be about scrapbooking, journaling or Project Life. For example, you can use a sketch idea for a card or 3D item.

Hope you can join in!!
