CTC#148 using Kits for Inspritation

Welsome to this week's challenge0- usingany of the kits as inspiration for your project. The kits are fabulous but it was an easy choice for me. I fell i love with the beautiful Hello Friend stamp set on page 17 of the annual catalogue. And while I haven't purchased the kit, I have had the stampset for quite a while and I have been inspired by the cards shown in the kit.

This card sort of gets a bit lost in the photo but it was really fun to make. I heat embossed onto shimmer paper because I prefer the look you get with watercolour wash on the shimmer.
 Two of the cards is stamped and cut out the flowers, but 2 are just stamped directly which was much faster. The hardest part was tying those little twine bows! but they do add a little pizazz.

This is a set for the coming Christmas market stalls. I am loving the new acetate boxes. They just make it all too easy. Thanks Stampin' Up!

Don't forget we love to see what inspires you from the catalogue. Please post a photo of what you create to our Facebook Page.
