Congratulations to the winner and crew pick of last week’s challenge! Did you know you can join in with us too? All you have to do is join our Facebook group and share your project with us. It’s that easy!!
We are getting ready for Mother’s Day and sharing a project inspired by the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue or the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.
I was inspired by the card on the top left of page 69 using the Bunch of Blossoms bundle.
I went with a colour combo of Wisteria Wonder, Blushing Bride, Whisper White and a touch of Pear Pizzazz. I didn’t want to use ribbon behind the flower so I created my own dsp using the Brushstrokes stamp set. I should use it more often as it looks rather nice, if I do say so myself!!
I had to search hard through my stamp sets to find a Happy Mother’s Day one! Luckily, Teeny Tiny Sentiments to the rescue!! I also used the retiring Banner framelits, which I will miss as I am very challenged at cutting an even banner!!
And have you noticed something new? The flower centre is the gorgeous new gold faceted gems!! Aren’t they lovely!! I’m so excited!!!!
Next up is the very talented Kelly Kent.
Don’t forgot to pop over to the Facebook group and join in!!
Stampin’ Up! Product List
This week at Case-ing the Catty, we are casing the Mother’s Day section of the Occasions catalogue.
You may have come from the fabulous Nikki’s blog or be starting here. I’ve decided to case the note book shown on page 36 of the AU/NZ catalogue.
But I didn’t want to do a notepad for my mum. I do need a gift box for her special present, so I used the notepad as my inspiration.
I made the box using the Gift Box punch board and stamped it with one of the flower images from the Mum’s Love stamp set. I love this punch board!! I then made a belly band and stamped it using the retiring in-colours, Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding and also So Saffron (which isn’t retiring!!). I added a couple of sequins for a bit of bling!!
To make the tag, I used the Party Pennants Bigz die and cut out a Gold Vellum banner and a whisper white one. I used the sentiment from the Mum’s Love stamp set and added a few flowers like the belly band.
I added the in-colour twine and a string of sequins. I also put a piece of washi tape across the bottom of the tag.
I hope you like my box!! and I hope Mum does too!!
Guess what I got Mum!!! Fits perfectly.
Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think. The next stop on the hop is Stasia.
