CTC 166 – Lots to Love with Pick a Pattern

Hello again!

Welcome to CTC 166 where this week we are CASEing projects from the Painted with Love Section of the Occasions Catalogue, on Pages 18-21.

This section of the Catalogue is just gorgeous.  I am absolutely in love with the Gold Glitter Flakes and Painted with Love DSP, but I really went in quite the opposite direction for this challenge.

This challenge was a great excuse to pull out the Lots to Love Framelits Dies and create a box like you see in the centre of the above image.

I decided to create a box and used the image below to base my design off, but switched out the tags to use the new Whisper White Narrow Notecards for my project.

I’m not sure where the rest of the inspiration for this project came from, but I have been using a lot of florals for a while, so maybe my brain decided it had enough of those images.  As I played around the idea just evolved I guess! Lol.

I had forgotten how fun the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper actually is!  Lots of images to fussy cut and play around with.  I started by creating the notecards, loosely basing the layout on the images of the tags from the catalogue (above).  As I was playing, I was picturing images that you might capture whilst camping – without realising how easily that idea would coordinate with another one of the DSP sheets!  That’s where the box cover came to fruition.  Those cute little animals, polaroid snaps and camera images fitted so well with my overall plan!  The only image that was stamped was the ‘sun burst’ from the FREE Amazing You Stamp Set.

I really wanted to be able to see the images inside the box, so after I had adhered the black DSP, I used a circle from the Layering Circle Dies to create a window, popped a piece of window sheet on the inside and viola.  I really like how this little set turned out and it’s more masculine feel.  My mind is now racing to use the Flying Home Stamp Set and Hedgehugs to create a similar pack!

By purchasing the Lots to Love Framelit Dies, the Whisper White Narrow Notecards and the Pick a Pattern DSP you would actually qualify for a FREE Saleabration stamp set.  That means you could choose Amazing You and you would be able to recreate this project at home!

Now it’s time to hop on over to the amazing Kelly Kent and see what she has created for you all!

CTC 161 – Saleabration and Amazing You

Hi everyone!

We are back for CASEing the Catty 161 where we get to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) from the Saleabration Catalogue this week!  ANYTHING from the Saleabration Catalogue.  That leaves a lot of scope you know!

Have you got your copy of the new catalogues yet?  You don’t want to miss out because Saleabration allows you to choose FREE products for every $90 or $180 spent!  So make sure you contact your demonstrator for a copy!

This week I decided to CASE this lovely card on the front cover of the catalogue –

Although, I have to be honest, I didn’t really like the colours in this image.  So that was the task I set myself – Copy the card but change up the colours.  I pictured this card more with black and white tones, with just a hint of colour to lift the flowers.  So this is what I created –

I started with a Basic Black base and added a layer of Petal Passion Designer Paper (5 3/4″ x 4″).

For my second layer I stamped the flower from the Amazing You Stamp Set (FREE) in versamark, on another Basic Black Layer (5″ x 3 1/4″) before heat embossing with our Clear Embossing Powder.  I then stamped the ‘rays’ in versamark in the centre of this piece and heat set with Silver Embossing powder.  A couple of wraps of the New Silver Baker’s Twine finished with a bow, and then the whole layer was popped up on dimensionals to finish it off.

The flowers were created by stamping in versamark onto Vellum Cardstock and heat setting with White Embossing Powder – so much embossing today! Lol.   I then coloured the back of the images with our Stampin Blends.  You couldn’t see the colours on the black like this though – so I then adhered them with some tombow to Whisper White Cardstock, before fussy cutting each flower and adhering to the card.  I added a few other elements before using the Celebrate You Thinlets (also FREE) to cut the ‘Amazing’ sentiment.  This was so easy to adhere using the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets!

I’m really happy with how this card turned out, and dare I say – I prefer my colour combination 🙂  And even better, the stamp set and framelits are products that you can choose for FREE during Saleabration !
