CTC62 A Sale-A Bration Favourite, well of course it's Flowering Fields!

Welcome back to the CTC bloghop this week where we are each making a project inspired by the pictures in the SAB Brochure. CASEing the Catty means that we can use a project, or a colour combination, a layout or a stampset as a springboard for making anything. The creative license is really endless. If you have been inspired by any of the projects you have seen this week, or anything in the brochure you have looked at and thought 'I must make that", then this is the bloghop for you!

We have started 2016 with a new format -each month we will be hosting a challenge as well as the weekly Hop. That means you can make a card and link it up with the CTC page via the Linky HERE. Each month we will select a winner. So you have quite a bit of time to get creative. We hope you will join in. This month its all about the new catalogues, so choose your favourite product or project and jump in.

The front page of the SAB brochure has 7 projects and I fell in love with the flowering fields set so I have CASEd the card on the middle shelf.

Usually I love White Embossing but I thought it might be a bit heavy for the delicate line style of this  set, so I used the White Stazon for this project. I coloured in the flowers using a blender pen and various inks. I don't use the white Stazon very often as I find it can be a bit dry  and you have to reink the pad each stamping session. As a result I tend to stamp a lot of pieces when I have it out and juicy.

I always love a Fancy Fold so this one will be the Class project for February. It's a card style I have done before and it's easy and always a nice change. (You can find the earlier samples HERE)

If you came from Tricia's blog  you will have enjoyed her gorgeous soft birthday card, 

Next on the hop is Julia - also from Sunny Qld like me, with a sunny card using the same Wildflower stampset to inspire you.

thanks for looking, don't forget to make a card for the challenge and link up to the CTC Page.
till next time, Liz

  1. your colours are so soft and subtle, Liz, love them like that. Nice use of the ribbon and twine too.

  2. I love your fancy fold card!! The flowers look so pretty.

  3. The white stazon on the crumb cake background gives your card such a soft pretty feel which is perfect for this stamp set. I have never used the white stazon so its nice to see it used. The fancy fold is a fun surprise for the recipient too!

  4. ooooooh, Liz, I LOVE your card!! It's so beautiful and the fancy fold just makes the card so much more!! What a wonderful CASE!! THank you so much for the amazing inspiration!!

  5. Your fancy fold card is just fabulous Liz!!! The White Staz On combined with the subtle colouring and your colour combination make this card truly stunning. What a fabulous CASE. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Fabulous card, Liz! Your delicate images & subtle DSP work beautifully together. Awesome fold too. :)

  7. I have never tried your style of fancy fold so I think you have inspired me to give it a go. The Flowering Fields is I think my favourite stamp set at the moment.

  8. I really like the white stamping with the coloured interiors. I agree that embossing with white EP might have made the flowers appear too thick. Beautifully crafted and what a great style of fancy fold to use with your design. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Lovely card, Liz. Love the colouring on Crumb cake, it gives a beautiful soft finish that works perfectly with this set.

  10. Love the soft look of the White Staz on the Crumb Cake card stock and the fancy fold is pretty special too.

  11. A stunning CASE Liz - love the fancy fold. The white on crumb cake is the perfect balance of contrast and subtlety - and such beautiful colouring.
