CTC#61 Favourite project from the NEW OCCASIONS CATALOGUE


WELCOME BACK! You may have arrived here from the talented Tricia Ranieri who has done such a great job recreating one of the Global Design projects. I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas Break and that you were able to find some time to be creative! It's nice to start the new year with fresh ideas - and what better place to look for inspiration than the NEW Occasions Catalogue! It's always an exciting time of year for Stampin' Up! as not only is there a new set of gorgeous products available, but the Sale-A Bration promotion over the next few months means that there are product bonuses when you order. 
For every $90 you spend you can choose a free product from the Sale-A Bration Lineup. There are stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, Vellum papers, and Project Life sets to choose from. It's a great time to stock up on your card making or scrapbooking essentials. Let me know if you would like a catalogue!

Anyhoo. This week we are CASEing our Favourite project form the new Catalogue. That was hard as I don't yet have the stamp set for my favourite project but I will get to that in a few weeks. Meanwhile I have chosen the card on page 37. I don't have that stampset yet either but I thought I would show you how you can modify an inspiration picture and use what you already have. The Striped Scallops Thinlits always looks fabulous, especially when it is tone on tone. So I have used white on white for the first sample, and the flower is from one of the new Sale-A Bration sets called What I Love. The flower is a beautiful 3 step stamp and I used Calypso Coral for the first two layers of the flower and Watermelon Wonder for the top layer. The leaves are done in Wild Wasabi, and the backdrop is also Wild Wasabi using Gorgeous Grunge.


However for the Second Sample I used the new DSP Birthday Bouquets to cut the striped scallops, and also for the focal image. One of the designs is covered with large Peonies (you can see a good sample on page 23) so I fussy cut one out. I also added a bit of dimension using the stylus from  my scoring tool. For the Background on this one I used another new set - Timeless Textures - which you are going to love, in Mint Macaron and Silver Embossing Powder.


You may be also able to see a little Wink of Stella on here. The sentiment is from Endless Birthday Wishes.

Next on the blogshop is the uber talented Jessica Williams at the Paper Caper, and Artisan 
Team member. I always love to see what she creates each week.
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure and Check out the rest of the Blog at CTC. If you get lost you can find the full list for the week here.

Happy creating, Liz

    1. Thanks Jess, yes I like to use a single sketch and see how different elements change the look and feel of a card. Also I have so many pinterest inspiration pics and catalogue inspiration pics I sometimes feel compelled to try them all at once!

  6. What beautiful feminine cards, perfect for birthdays, or even mother's day. I really liked the way you showed both the plain and the dsp samples to show what a different effect can be achieved. Really clever. Thanks for inspiring.

  11. Love both your cards, Elizabeth, but I think the second one is my favourite. The peony looks fabulous fussy cut and works beautifully with the touches of colour peeking from the scallops. Love the touch of glimmer too.
