CTC175 – Favourite Occasions Catalogue Big Shot project

ctc_header

I’ve had a lovely week off work relaxing after the Commonwealth Games.  I’ve done a few jobs around the house, shopping with my mum and lots of time in the craft room!! I think my mojo has returned!!

We are casing our favourite Occasions Catalogue Big Shot project this week. There are so many great framelits and thinlits in this catalogue, which makes it hard to decide which one to case!

I went with the Hold on to Hope bundle on page 27 of the 2018 Occasions Catalogue and the square card on the right.

Instead of embossing the white background, I used the large floral thinlit from the Flourish thinlits.  I cut out 2 and then snipped them into pieces and using the fine tip glue pen, glued them around the edge of the card.

I love Marina Mist and I’m sad to see it leaving, so I used it on the scallop square.  I added a square in So Saffron and stamped the strips using the Ready to Pop stamp set.

The sentiment is from the Hold on to Hope stamp set.   As this is a square card, I made a matching card and even stamped it!

We are back with our second challenge of the year already!  It looks like this year is going to go as fast as 2017, which is good as I’m planning on travelling to Orlando, Florida in November for a Stampin’ Up! 30th anniversary Onstage event.  Bring it on!!

We have a gorgeous colour combination this week, of Emerald Envy, Bermuda Bay, Tranquil Tide and Sahara Sand.

I decided to try a new technique for my background.   I had a piece of glossy white cardstock and put drops of each colour (but not sahara sand) over the card.  I then spritzed it with Isocol and let the colours blend together.   Because I was impatient, I dried it using my heat gun, but you could let it dry on its own.

I really love the Hold on to Hope stamp set and bundle.  It was created by Million Sales Achiever Brandy Cox when she got to visit the Stampin’ Up! office.

I created the cross by cutting out the detailed cross framelit and the solid cross framelit and glued them together with the fine tip glue.

For the sentiment, I stamped on Sahara Sand and cut out with the largest stitched circle framelit.

I can’t wait to try other colour combinations using this technique.

Next up is the lovely Nicole.  You are going to love her card!
