CTC24 – Happy Easter!!

Isn’t the year just flying past? Who can believe that Easter is nearly upon us!!

At CTC this week, we are casing the Easter section of the Occasions catalogue which is found on pages 34 and 35 of the AU/NZ catalogue.

I decided to case the Petite Café gift bag on the top corner of page 34.

It’s cute, isn’t it? But I don’t have the For Peeps’ Sake stamp set. So I decided to make my tag using the Happy Easter Bunny stamp and just inking the bunny using the chocolate chip marker. I then coloured a few spots with blushing bride and pear pizzazz markers.

I also didn’t have the circle decorative mask so I carefully used my sponge dauber to make the dots. Remember, when you use white ink, to leave it to dry before you touch it. (Ask me how I know!!) I cut out 2 of the tag from the chalk talk framelits and cut one up and put the Sweet Dreams Designer Washi tape along the edge to make the tag stand out.

I used the Indescribable Gift stamp set for the Happy Easter sentiment.

18 September 2013 – One stamp, Two Stunners!!!

I am loving the all the Christmas stamps in the Seasonal Catalogue!! There are lots of great new kits to make sending your Christmas cards easy. I really like the Merry Little Christmas Simply Created Card kit. It includes just about everything you need to make 8 gorgeous cards to impress your friends with. It has cardstock cards, envelopes, envelope liners, die-cut designer series paper and cardstock accents, buttons and baker’s twine. All you need to add is the matching stamp set, Merry Little Christmas, and ink.

We did these at Stamp Club last week and the girls were impressed at how easy it was to put together.
