CTC#181 - It's a NEW Catalogue

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

Don't forget we love to see what you create. Please share your project with us on our Facebook page.

I hope you have a creative week and remember,

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
