CTC 180 – Favourite Retiring Project

So it’s been a while as I’m sure you will all be aware, but life has been SUPER busy lately!  But I have jumped on board for CTC 180 – Favourite Retiring Project.

Today was no easy decision at all.  Retiring time always brings mixed feelings of sadness saying goodbye to my favourites and anticipation for all the new goodies.  I honestly couldn’t decide which was my absolute favourite for today’s challenge, so I combined a few favourites to create my project today.

 

I think if I was honest, my absolute favourite retiring item would have to be my Large Number Framelits.  I’m not entirely sure what I am going to do without those….who am I kidding, they haven’t even moved out of my ‘current’ framelits basket to my retired but keeping’ basket yet, so I will continue to use them for a LONG time yet!!!  I truly believe they are a MUST HAVE item!

My other favourites are the Rainbow Builder Framelits and the Myths and Magic Bundle – so I added them all to this project that I created for my niece!

I think this card pretty much sums up my favourite retiring projects!  I will miss all of these products so much!  Lucky for you, you still have a few more days to get your hands on our retiring products before they disappear forever.  I’ve learnt the hard way not to delay or you miss out! Don’t be like me and make sure you place your order before May 31st!

I look forward to sharing some of our new goodies with you in the next CASEing the Catty hops!

Now its time to hop on over to the lovely Monique and see what she will miss the most!

Happy Crafting!

Myths and Magic Shaker Shadow Box Card

Hi everyone!

Today I thought I would pop past and share on of my creations with you all!

You see, my niece turned 18 last week – so that requires a bit more of a ‘special’ card in my eyes.  I mean, its a pretty special birthday and something to celebrate. Plus, its another good excuse to create a 3D project! Lol.

My niece is a BIG Harry Potter fan, so I knew whatever I created had to be themed around that.  Aren’t we lucky that our new Myths and Magic Suite could make sure that happened for me!

I used Bronwyn Eastley’s Magic Mermaid Shaker Shadow Box tutorial again (you can see my first creation HERE) to create the base of this card.  However Lou, one of the other AddINKtive Design Team members created the same box with clear acetate, so I guess you can say I CASEd her’s as well! (with permission of course!) You can see her design HERE.

So here it is – my

Myths and Magic Shaker Shadow Box Card!

I have created the back portion of the box using the Myths and Magic Speciality Designer Series Paper.  This is just one of a couple of lots of Designer Paper in the new Occasions Catalogue that is thicker than regular Designer Paper, making it fantastic for 3D projects!  The centre piece, number 18 and sentiment are all using our Silver Foil – it was just SUPER difficult to photograph with the dark background and glare off the acetate no matter what lighting I tried to use!

The wizard himself has been stamped and coloured using our Stampin’ Blend Alcohol markers, but the little wizard and the castle in the background are fussy cut directly from other pieces of the Designer Paper.  I thought the young wizard at least had Gryffindor’s colour scheme! All I really need was a white owl! Lol.

The castle and trees are actually set on the very back panel, so here’s a bit of a close up for you –

It’s a mini Hogwarts!

The lovely ‘Celebrate’ die is a FREE item available during Saleabration.  It was cut from our Silver Foil Sheets with a Fresh Fig Sentiment layered underneath help ‘lift’ it off the card.

The shaker middle section just adds a bit of extra bling and fun to the card!

Bronwyn’s tutorials are really very versatile! Once you have the base, you can mix it up to suit your needs!  Take a look at her tutorial store and all that is on offer HERE.

I hope you enjoyed my project today!
