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,

  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.

  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.

Merriest Moments #simplestamping Project 2 and 3 Easy cards

  This weekend I held my Christmas Card Class and catalogue launch showcasing the new Christmas Catalogue. It was a great day and we did 6 projects using the  Merriest Moments Stampset .  I created several projects designed to show that the set is brilliant on it's own.  Since not everyone owns a die cutting machine it is good to look at ways to utilise the stamps. There are lots of gorgeous samples around which focus on the Hybrid dies and embossing folder - and don't get me wrong they are an amazing product to use - but I have a few cards which just use the stamps, this is the second and third. This card uses the Holly Leaf - either medium or large- and random stamping across the card. The berries just tuck in perfectly and are easy to line up. In between the Holly I stamped the leaf frond with the rounded leaves using Sahara Sand, (anyone know what this is called?) and then filled in the spaces with the little "dottage" stamp using versamark and Heat Embossing with

Envelope Dies perfect for an Acetate Tent card and some new DSP

After creating yesterday's cards I was on a roll and created this one using the beautiful Gilded Autumn DSP and the Fancy Phrases stamp set.  I really love the sentiments in this set.  It is such a simple design and easy to create. You can find all the directions on yesterday's post for Just Add Ink (JAI#518)  I watercoloured the white leaf after I had adhered the gold veins just to soften it, and I added a strip of mint DSP to the front of one of the tent stands as the white was a bit stark. That's the cool thing about this design, you can change it up plenty of ways. I'm sure we can all send these type of cards at the moment. I hope you are safe and well, and staying connected, wherever you are. I hope you have a creative week and remember,  "don't just post online,  post something pretty!" cheers, Liz Product List Ornamental Envelopes Bundle [ 155168 ] $83.50 Envelopes  Dies [ 153531 ] $63.00 Shimmery White A4 Car

Triangle gift Box instructions for CTC#89 Christmas Packaging

Hello, I ran out of time to record the instructions for my project at CASEing the Catty#89 (busy week with markets etc)  so as promised here is the original inspiration and my version. I hope you give it a try. So I searched my Pinterest boards and finally found the link again here . It is a  picture tutorial in  German.  No matter which way I fold mine it doesn't look like Annika's - My flat faces are isosceles triangles, whereas hers appear to be right-angle triangles (I had to go back to basic maths to explain this to myself -you gotta love google!) At any rate, once folded and tied it looks quite pretty and I will use it as is.  so here are my instructions- very similar to Annika's: cut a piece of A4 Cardstock  in a 15 cm strip (use the full length of the A4) score parallel to the long edge at 4.5 cm rotate 90* and score at  7cm, 14cm, 21cm, 28 cm these vertical scores will be VALLEY folds make a mark at the top edge of the page at
