CTC55 – Catty Section – Into the Woods

I am really enjoying caseing the 2015 Holiday catalogue this year. There are so many lovely projects to choose from!!

This week at Caseing the Catty we are up to the Into the Woods section. I don’t have many of the sets in this section but one of my favourite sets of the whole catalogue is Lighthearted Leaves. I have seen so many lovely cards done using this set. So, of course, it was the stamp set of choice this week.

I am caseing the sponged card on page 44 of the catty.

This was such an easy card to make. I made a template of the leaf and then sponged with the lighter colour. This is a polymer set which made it so easy to stamp the second image over the top.

I’ve gone with a different colour theme for the two cards I made. One combo of Soft Sky and Marina Mist and the other Perfect Plum and Blackberry Bliss. I added a touch of bling by using some silver thread. I don’t seem to have the knack of artistically arranging twine or thread, but you get the idea!!

I used the washi tape punch and the thanks sentiment from the Cottage Greetings stamp set.

For the second card, I used the Lots of Labels framelits and trimmed it down and the happy birthday stamp from the Cottage Greetings set.

I’m very happy with the end result!! I might have to do this with some more sets!!

GDP#006 – All about the angles

I always look forward to seeing what challenge is up at Global Design Project each Monday. Then I spend the next few days working out what to make.

Well this week, I was making a card for my monthly stamp club class on this coming Saturday and my lovely friend, Emma at Vintage Graffiti, suggested with a few tweaks, my card would suit this week’s challenge.

So I tweaked it and here we are!! I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest where a white gel pen was used to highlight the leaves on the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set. I wanted the focus to be the Garden Green tree so I stamped the background tree on the Real Red cardstock with Real Red ink.

I then stamped the tree using the new Basic Black ink and cut out using the matching Leaflets framelits (try saying that fast!!). I then highlighted the petals using the Stampin’ Chalk marker.

I then assembled it all together and added a banner using the stamp from the Flurry of Wishes set and my favourite punch, Banner triple punch.

I think it’s kinda cute!!

I’d love to hear what you think, so please leave me a comment below.

Update – I’m excited to share that this card was chosen as a winner for this challenge!! Excited much!! Thank you so much, GDP!!!
