Hi everyone! Welcome to CTC 164 where this week we are CASEing the Occasions Kits of the Occasions Catalogue, on pages 15 – 17.
The kit you see pictured here is the Lots of Happy Card Kit! I absolutely love this kit and have already had a class using it, which the participants loved as well! The best bit about this prepackaged kit is that it is literally a class ready to go!
It has absolutely everything you need to create your projects, other than snail adhesive – It includes the stamp set, an ink spot, all card bases, envelopes, embellishments, ribbons, pencils and a basic stamp block to get you started creating right away! They are great for beginners, those with limited supplies, or to take away when travelling! You can even get a refill of this one! I cannot recommend these kits highly enough!
For today’s challenge however, I created my own little kit using the cards on the bottom of page 17 as a basis, using the Petal Palette Bundle.
I loved how bright and fun these cards were. I started by creating with the Lemon Lime Twist Card.
Occasions Kits with Petal Palette!
Even though it’s a bit hard to see, I substituted the Happy Birthday Sentiment on the original card for the spotted stamp in the Petal Palette Stamp Set. To create the flowers I stamped the image one a piece each of Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Soft Sky Card stock. I used the Lemon Lime twist as my base piece, and then fussy cut the flowers in the other colours, before layering them on to the base piece.
My second card was the Berry Burst Card. I stamped one of the smaller flower images on the card base, so it was similar to the original. For this card I lightly watercolored my images with an aqua painter, which I kept quite dry as I was using regular Whisper White Cardstock.
The third card is just a little 4″ x 4″ card. I changed the elements for this one to more suit my stamp set – I mean – I hadn’t even inked up that sweet little bird yet! Even those this stamp set has coordinating framelits, I still fussy cut one of the flowers, as the framelit left a lot of white space in the middle that didn’t look right on this layout. And, if you purchase the whole bundle for this suite you automatically qualify for a FREE Saleabration item! How good is that!
And that my friends, is my own little Occasions Kit with Petal Palette! I am so happy with how my little kit turned out that I am offering this card kit tutorial for Free with the purchase of this bundle from me, for the month of February!
I hope you enjoyed my take on this challenge! We would love to see how you use this challenge, so why not play along! Create your own project using inspiration from pages 15-17 in the Occasions Catalogue, take a pic then upload it to our Facebook Group right HERE.
