CTC#72, CASEing sale a bration with a Flower Power Love Bug


Happy Easter to YOU and your family! I hope you are enjoying the break. Welcome back to the Blog hop this Easter Weekend. You have possibly come from Kathryn's beautiful blog, so welcome. 


I know everyone gets busy this time of year, and we are going away camping with a few families who are old friends. It's going to be great. About half of the people coming have to drive quite a long way to get here (Usually it's us travelling in the other direction) so it's very exciting to have them coming home. So in preparation for this weekend I have CASE'd a layout from the Sale-A Bration Catalogue (bottom right on page 10) and made some thnkyou cards for them. The "Beautiful Ride" stampset is perfect for the  people who are coming and it's so cute to stamp with. I have CASEd my fellow designer from CTC Rachel Palmiere who recently used this set and stamped directly onto DSP and cut out the car shape from the pattern -Perfect!!  (CTC#70 March 13) I said then that I would give it a go and so I have. That's what is so great about sharing and learning from each other. 



I had some watercolour panels left over from playing with the great colour combination at The Colour Tree Challenge ( you can see that here and if you click on the image below)

Watercolour seemed perfect for a Love Bug! To tie in the night of Navy I used some DSP from the Flower Patch pack which is still available on the Clearance Rack. The embroidery thread is actually a coral variegated thread but that doesn't show up too well in my photos.



I coloured the puppy and the luggage using my trusty blender pen, but I aquapainted the shadows under the car and for the windows and the sky around the vehicle. I got a bit carried away and made about 6 of these, but they were super easy and fun.

I hope you find some inspiration on the hop this week, and don't forget you are very welcome to create a project and link it up with us too.  Click on the join the Challenge link below for more details. At any rate I hope you find some time this Easter to be creative in whatever sphere you choose.

Next up is Rachel who has 2 Beautiful Rides for you also!

Thanks for joining us,

    1. Thanks Tricia, I actually made a whole heap and have a few more to share - I cut words from an old wine compendium to describe my friends- classic vintage, excellent year, a rare blend etc, They are a bit of fun! I love personalising cards for special people!

  4. Simply love both of these cards and want to try this design myself. I'm from the VW Beatle age so appreciate the flower power as well as the multi-coloured one. Takes me for a trip literally down memory lane.

    1. Thanks Penny, I used to ride to work in a bright orange beetle with my groovy friend. We thought we were uber cool! So yes I love this stamp set too, and certainly brings back fond memories

  7. I'm thinking hippy flower- power for those cars too. They can't help but make you feel happy, and a touch nostalgic too.
