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!!

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.

I hope you like my card today!!  Please leave me a comment and let me know!!  Next on the hop is the lovely Kelly.
