Welcome back for another week of inspiration from the Catalogue.
I had a bunch of thankyou cards to make so thanks to CTC I sat down and quickly put these together.
I had a few bits and pieces ready cut (the white card and black mats) so I used those as my starting point, and because I seem to have an abundance of Flirty Flamingo cardstock I opted to use that as my card base.
I used the Background Bits Hostess - set which is a fabulous addition to your stamping supplies - and I did an almost direct CASE from the sample with that set on page 220 of the Annual Catalogue.
But when I looked closely at all the hostess sets I quite liked the feature of same coloured background stamping so I added that in too!
Hers'e the sample on page 220
I was in a bit (a lot) of a hurry as the list of jobs to do doesn't really fit into the allocated daylight hours so I was really happy to find that the new Pretty Label punch is big enough to punch out the Thankyou sentiment. Even with the stampa ma jig I never seem to get sentiments straight on a rectangle so a punch is a perfect life saver for me. It looked a little stark so I added a bit of texture stamping through a punched circle window mask using one of the other great stamps in that set.
I am also quietly pleased with myself for using more washi! I'm loving the pack of just black and white washi.
Don't forget we love to see what you create and you can add your project to our Facebook page.
there's so much to inspire along the hop this week.
