CTC195 – Festive Farmhouse

ctc_header

As I type up my post on Saturday, it’s raining!!  Lovely, heavy rain filling up my water tanks!!  Just the sort of rain we need.  And of course, a rainy day makes for the perfect crafting day!

We are casing the Festive Farmhouse section, pages 12-17, of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

As you may have noticed, I love use Stampin’ Blends!  And there are 6 new combo packs in the Holiday Catalogue.  And yes, I already have them all!!

I was drawn to the sample on page 15 so that I can use my blends and the Joy & Noel stamp set!

Now don’t you just love the chicken wire elements in the background.  Well, I don’t have it yet (but I think I might need to get it soon!) so I decided to use the Subtles Textured embossing folder instead.

I stamped the image twice and cut out one using the largest oval from the Stitched Shape framelits.  I then coloured both with the Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Mango Meloday Stampin’ Blends (all are new colours).  I then fussy cut out some of the leaves and flowers and popped them up using dimensionals.  To make the word a little darker, I coloured with the basic black Stampin’ Blend.

I added Poppy Parade Textured Weave ribbon behind the sentiment oval and popped it up using dimensionals.

This week, we are casing our favourite project from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.

It’s so hard to choose a favourite!  You wouldn’t choose a favourite child, would you!

I love the Graceful Garden set and I’m so glad it’s carrying over.  I decided to case one of the Petal Garden Memories & More cards on page 57.

I stamped the flowers and leaves on a piece of thick whisper white cardstock and coloured them using the Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  I then fussy cut them out.
