CTC#126 Flowers for Mother's Day

Welcome back this week where we are CASEing the Catty to make a project for Mother's Day. I still find beautiful inspiration in the catalogue every time I look through it and wonder why I haven't noticed certain projects in the past. This was the case with this week's card - although I have CASE'd the gift bag on page 47 of the Annual Catalogue - which is nearly at the end of it's time. 

I loved the copper embossing on the brown paper bag, the lace, and the watercolored image on the tag. So using those features and the Falling Flowers Stamp set I created a card suitable for Mother's Day.

I heat embossed the images with white embossing powder on Shimmer White Cardstock and then coloured each flower of leaf with my aqua painter. I was short on time so didn't attempt masking but rather cut each flower with the coordinating framelits and layered them on the tag. I'm so pleased this set is not on the retirement list as I love the flowers.

I had a few blossoms left over so of course I decorated the inside, and I added a few new treats on the front- the Glitter Enamel Dots. The range of colours in each pack is going to make these a must have item in the coming year. Also featuring form the new products is a gorgeous copper trim which is a narrow ribbon but which can be teased out to a whole different look. It's going to be fun to work with too.

Before me this week is the fabulous Kelly

And following me this week is Bronwyn, with another gorgeous creation any mother would love to receive.

Don't forget we'd love to see what you create using the Catalogue as inspiration. Take a photo of your project and load it to our Facebook page and share the joy of creativity with us all.

Thanks so much for looking this week, be sure and hop all the way around the connecting blogs for loads of inspiration.
