CTC#41 Everyday section - so much to choose from

Spoilt for choice for inspiration this week! Welcome to the bloghop for CASEing the Catty - using the EVERYDAY section of the catalogue for inspiration.

You will have arrived here from the fabulous Rebecca, I know you will have seen some amazing inspiration so for, and you can go right around the circle if this is your first stop .

For my inspiration I used the white grateful card on page 87. I used the beautiful leaf image from  World of Dreams to cover the lefthand flap of the card and then fussy cut around the edges. I do love the Brick Wall embossing folder. To make the small white flowers stand out I punched them out of Shimmery White card with the Itty Bitty Accents flower punch. The sentiment is one of the handy ones from All Boxed Up.




I used the fine metallic silver thread as a highlight and some silver rhinestones. ( the silver peg is only to hold it closed for the photo)

Of course I couldn't stop at one colour! So I tried the Summer Silhouettes leaf image in Mossy Meadow. This is a favourite image which I have fussy cut many times. I used the little dandelion in Silver (or Pewter?) heat embossing powder on the Kraft cardstock to tie in with the Natural Chevron Ribbon. The Best Wishes sentiment is from Petite Pairs.




NOT everyone likes fussy cutting the edges(even me!) - and it is not ideal for a class, so to make a faster version I have used the Flower Shop image and the Pansy Punch. Then when I glued them onto the cut card edge , I just staggered the distance to give that same variation.
We will be doing this card in my class this weekend - the flowers are variegated using the Babywipe technique. Should be messy and fun and everyone's will be different!


It seemed a bit too white so the Hardwood background and some Gorgeous Grunge splotches seemed ideal.


Well you are at the end of the list but you can see everyone at the CTC blog. don't forget you can join in and leave us a comment if you would like to be part of the fun.


thanks for looking,

Liz

  1. Wow - three great cards! So much detail in these cards - the fussy cutting is very effective as the edge of your card but I also love those staggered punched flowers - thanks for sharing lots of ideas and tips.

  2. Oh my gosh - all three are beautiful!! I love the fussy cut edge look. The vines, leaves and flowers all look so effective against the brick wall texture.

  6. What lovely cards. The fussy cutting is just fab (I love me a little fussy cutting) and the embossed highlights just make the card so much more beautiful.
