CTC75 – Mother’s Day

ctc_header

Well, we are back to normal after the excitement of Onstage last week.  It is so lovely to be able to spend time with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators including my amazing team and to be inspired by gorgeous samples and of course, new catalogues!!  We were fortunate enough to receive the new 2016-2017 Annual catalogue and you are in for a treat!!  So many gorgeous new products and stamps to play with.  And of course, lots of new samples for us to case!!

I also got to catch up with some of the CTC crew which was just lovely.

This week, we are casing Mother’s Day from either the 2015-2016 Annual catalogue or the Occasion catalogue.

I decided to go back to the Annual catalogue and I found a lovely card on page 77 which features the Flower Patch stamp set and matching framelits.

I changed a few things but basically kept it the same.  I decided to mat the embossed piece as it was easier to emboss that way.  I also changed the colours as well to make it more feminine.  For the sentiment, I used my favourite Circle of Spring stamp set.  I actually used this card in my stamp club this weekend, and the Circle of Spring set has lots of alternate sentiments for those who didn’t want to make a Mother’s Day card.

Flowers that Bloom

I don’t know about you but one of my favourite new stamp sets and matching framelits is the Flower Patch stamp set and the co-ordinating framelists Flower Fair.

There have been lots of gorgeous cards on Pinterest lately showcasing this set. I found this one here, which I decided to use as a card at my July Stamp Club.

I love the fact that you can stamp the leaves on a light colour and then stamp the petals in a darker colour and be able to see through the polymer stamp so that you can line it up.

I found that the smaller flower done in Lost Lagoon doesn’t come as a framelit, so we still had to do a little cutting out. But it looks cute, so it’s worth it, right??

I love that this card also showcases some of the new in-colours, Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon. I think these 3 are quickly becoming my favourite colours!!
