CTC #115 – Delicate Details Wedding Card

It’s Sunday night, so that means it’s time for another CASEing the Catty Blog Hop!

Have you been joining in the fun on our new Facebook Group.  Its as simple as uploading your project to the correct album on the Group! You may have come from the lovely Julia Quinn tonight, or be starting right here! Take a look around and see what has inspired us this week!

Our challenge for this week is to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) anything we like from pages 8 – 11 of the Saleabration Catalogue! Remember – you don’t need the particular stamp set – you could be inspired by the colours, layout, backgrounds, absolutely anything on the projects!

This week I thought it was time to pull out my Delicate Details Stamp Set.  It hadn’t seen ink yet, which is a shame, because it’s a lovely set.  I took inspiration from the card on the left on Page 9 of the Saleabration Catalogue…

I really wanted to ink up those layers just like that card.  It’s quite easy to do – just line up all your stamps and place your block on top to attach them, and stamp in one image.

I wanted to try this background with gold heat embossing….so thats what I did!

That gold really pops off the card and it looks so elegant!

And the best bit – this stamp set is totally FREE and yours to choose when you spend $90 during Saleabration!  Who doesn’t love a freebie!

Now its time to continue to the wonderful Judy May to see what she has in store for you! Just click the image below.

We have a fantastic colour challenge this week to get you started! Full of pretty pastels! Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise and Peekaboo Peach!  Pick at least three – or up to all six! Neutrals are welcome – black, white, vanilla, crumb cake, kraft and sahara sand!

What a gorgeous colour palette to begin playing with!

I initially started by making a watercolour wash on some shimmery white to mimic the sky, using tempting turquoise, so saffron and blushing bride, which I planned to pair with our new Lift Me Up Bundle. But once I had it completed I instantly went back to my childhood – enjoying a cone with lovely gelato ice-cream flavours! You know…the kind you don’t seem to be able to find anymore!  Well, lucky for me Saleabration has the perfect set for me to use! Yep, out came Tasty Trucks to create my gelato heaven!

I gave the truck a light wash of mint macaron and sweet sugarplum and then cut out the shape and windows before ‘colouring’ it with our fine tip glue pen to give it a glossy finish. I also finished off the ice creams with 2 coats of the fine tip glue pen to give them a bit of lift and shine!  The sentiment was from the Suite Sentiments set and was perfect for my gelato card finished off with Copper Embossing powder!

Don’t forget – you can get your very own Tasty Trucks Set with any purchase over $90 whilst Saleabration is on! Just use my handy ‘Shop Now’ button to get your supplies.

I hoped you liked my creation! Continue on to Kathryn’s blog to see her use of the colour challenge! And don’t forget to join the challenge yourself over on our Facebook group!

Gift Bag Punch Board – bags for any occasion!

Hi everyone,

Today I wanted to pop by and show you just how easy it is to use our Gift Bag Punch Board to create bags for any and all occasions.

The Gift Bag Punch Board is one of those tools that I have found I cannot live without.  It has helped me out on many occasions when stuck for a quick packaging idea.  They make great party favour bags, bags for jewellery, makeup, lollies, chocolates, little thank you gifts, christmas gifts…..you get the idea! I have even made minion party bags using this tool where the kids for the party decorated their own bag as a minion before filling it up with goodies to take home! It was a HUGE hit!

And one of my favourite things to do when I can, is making a matching gift bag and card! Such a cute idea.  And imaging, you can create personalised cards and bags that suit the individual! Its all in the decorating and paper choice!

Here was one I created for my video – because I love the Pop of Paradise Stamp Set and my daughter LOVES flamingos, so I know it will come in handy shortly for a little gift of makeup, nail polish or jewellery!

Of course there are lots of other ideas you can create, not to mention all sorts of sizes! The possibilities are endless.

You can even create boxes with this tool by omitting to score the 3 lines to create your side fold. Instant box!

You don’t have to punch holes to thread ribbons. You can close the bags using any fancy clips or pegs you may have on hand.

You can even create a flap to fold over on your bag like this one.

Take a look at my Youtube video to see how to create a fast and simple gift bag at My Paper Oasis.

Here’s how you cut your bag to create that flap.

  1. Score your card stock as normal.
  2. Turn your cardstock / DSP so the straight edge is now against the punch on the board. Move the card stock/ DSP edge along the board until your large scored area that is along the right hand edge of your card stock / DSP is under the punch, with the edge of the cardstock / paper in line with the punch point on the board.  Punch the corner.
  3. Move the cardstock / DSP along to the next score line and punch and then score along the horizontal line.
  4. then move the rest of the cardstock / DSP along the punch board just scoring along the horizontal line. Refer to image 1.
  5. Then trim along the score line up to the punch mark. Refer to image 2.
  6. Fold and adhere as normal.
  7. You just need to make sure when creating this type of bag, that you allow an extra 1 1/2 inches in length for your bag for the top fold too.

I do hope you have a chance to create some of your own special and unique gift bags to give to friends and family. They will love the personal touch! If you have any questions just leave a comment and I will be happy to help 🙂

Keep Crafting!
