CTC#74 Shine on with Balloons

Welcome back for another week of great inspiration projects from the Catalogue. This week we are CASEing the Shine On section of the Occasions Catalogue form pages 30 -33.

Welcome from Julia's blog,what lovely tags she has created.

It's not a big section and at first glance it appears to not have too many options for CASEing. There are quite a few items in this section that I would love to own, but being realistic and trying to purchase sensibly they kept slipping down the priority list. One item that I definitely did purchase was the Shine On DSP. It is simply gorgeous and the photos don't really do it justice.  You need to hold this beauty in your hands to appreciate how gorgeous and shiny it is. I have made quite a few projects using it and they have all been very striking. The colours against the kraft are very strong, but the silver is absolutely beautiful.

There are lots of great cards in this kit. Can you see the black card on the bottom row with the 3 balloons? I thought that looked quick and easy so I gave it a go.

I don't own the balloon stamps so I have just drawn the balloon outline freehand and given the look of a shiny patch using the white gel pen.

It is indeed easy, would love for you to give it a go. Don't forget you can also join in with the crew over the whole month. 

Here's a coupe of other cards I've shown previously using the Shine On DSP - it is such a feature you don't need too much els on the card. Great for quick projects.

Hop on over now to Jackie's amazing project. The Shine On DSP is truly a beautiful product. You won't regret purchasing this little packet of sparkle.

thanks for looking, Liz
