Hello and welcome to CTC 182. This week we are CASEing the Tea Room section on pages 13 – 25 of the Annual Catalogue.
How exciting that we now get to play with HEAPS of new goodies from the BRAND NEW CATTY!
Are you absolutely loving it?
Tonight I’m excited to be playing along. I barely seemed to have time to create lately, so it was good to get crafting for tonights hop.
There was plenty to choose from in the Tea Room section of the catalogue, but this image in particular grabbed my attention…
This card features the gorgeous Stitched all Around Bundle. I haven’t got mine yet, but I thought it would be perfect to substitute the design using the Painted Glass Bundle. So here are my
CTC 182 Tea Room Meets Painted Glass Cards:
My first card uses one of my all time favourite returning colours – Mint Macaron. The rest of the colours I based on the Designer Series Paper Colours from the Natures Poem DSP including one of our new colours – Petal Pink.
I used the Big Shot Embossing Mats to create the embossed shape on the card base. These mats are brilliant! You will be able to emboss any of your framelit shapes using these mats to create interesting backgrounds to suit any needs. The rose from the Painted Glass set is one of my favourite flowers. For this card I fussy cut the roses as I didn’t have any new Stampin Blends to match my colours for the leaves (They’re on my wish list too!)
My second card I made, as i was truly dying to make a card using the new Soft Sea Foam colour. Maybe it reminds me a bit of our old Pistachio Pudding – but I love it. I was a bit stumped at first as to what DSP to use as I don’t have much of that yet either, then I remembered our Wood Textures DSP is carrying over and would really help me achieve the subtle look I was after.
I have to say – I really love how this one turned out! I hope you do to. This bundle has so many possibilities – not just for stained glass looks!
Now its time to hop on over to Elizabeth’s blog and see what she has created. Don’t forget to hop all the way around and get some new catalogue inspiration!

Oh, these are so beautiful. I wanna be like you when I grow up!! I love the square as the focal point.
Lol. You’re funny! Thanks Bec xx
Mel what a brilliant take on the catalogue sample. I don’t really like the stampset ( so far) but your use of the framelits is stunning. Brilliant with the embossed card base. How lovely that window element looks.
Simply wonderful Mel! Two gorgeous variations and a great example of how to soften this bundle! Kelly x
Thanks Kelly xx
Wow Mel! Stunning cards – both of them. I have just caved and wasn’t sure if I’d done the right thing, but you now have me inspired and I can’t wait to get it. Love your colour choices.
Thanks Sandra. You will love it. There’s Lots of possibilities!
Wow Mel, two amazing cards. I may need to CASE these. I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of my Embossing Mat.

Oh wow! Mel these are beautiful. I love the embossed image, I need to get my mats out & use them!
