CTC#181 Welcome to the NEW CATALOGUE. Oh my Goodness so many lovely new products. and of course new colours. I've been busy preparing for my Catalogue Launch June 9 and I am totally in love with the Nature's Poem Suite. The stamps are lovely, the paper is gorgeous and the framelits make it all so easy.
I'm also quite impressed with the new gorgeous In Colours for 2018-2020. And while I am always sad to see colours discontinued - especially Dapper Denim, I have to say I've fallen in love with the brightness of the new set.
I have been having fun watercolouring with these colours - and if you follow my blog that won't surprise you. I have loosely CASEd the watercolour panel card on page 133, to create my new In Colour sampler. The text is created using the alphabet stamps from the set "Make a Difference" - so easy to use.
With one of the panels I painted I used the "Enjoy Life" stampset from page 58 to create a few cards- I love the silhouette effect on Watercolour. You'll be seeing more from me using this set.
The little heart and tab are from Tabs for Everything which works really well with this set.
For my Catalogue Launch I created a colour sampler- and I have used this painter's tray every year for a while now.
But I have to say the actual card is not CASEd from the Catalogue but from a marvellous Demonstrator called Tracy Bish whose work I have recently discovered.(She was happy for me to CASE this- thanks Tracey)
Each panel incorporates watercolour, colour stamping on white (shimmer white) and the embossed leaf. Where the crystal buttons matched the colours I stitched them on also. I really love how bright they are. There is some fussy cutting around each sentiment and its' coordinating mat but it wasn't hard.
Next on the hop this week is Rachel
And Before me this week is the very talented Julia
