Create With Kathe For Thursday 22nd January 2015


This weeks Create With Kathe” Craft Class was piggy backed on to the “Creative Inkers" Blog Hop , celebrating the Occasionals 2015 brochure.

Project 1. "Painted Petals" Card


This first card is in shades of Blushing Bride and Strawberry Slush.
It features the gorgeous “Painted Petals” stamp set, which was the first stamp set on my Wish List when the new Occasionals brochure, which stated on the 6th of January.
The Blushing Bride cardstock has been scored using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool, to give it an elegant look.
Classic Stampin Pads used throughout the card are Garden Green and Strawberry Slush.
For the Tag, I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and Project Life Corner, along with Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, which has been backed with Strawberry Slush cardstock.
The Tag has Venetian Crochet Trim that has been secured/stapled with the Handheld Stapler, and some pink twine has been tied in a bow and secured with a Glue Dot.
The finishing touch is the Pearl Basic Jewel, which has been coloured with the Melon Mambo Blendabilities, and anchors the card nicely.
For the card insert, a strip of Strawberry Slush cardstock has been added, which has been punched using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.
The flowers have been stamped in Strawberry Slush and Garden Green, and the sentiment in this card has been placed on the lower right corner.
This is a sweet little card, which I have already given away to a number of friends.
Wah-lah … "Painted Petals" card done!
Project 2 "Best Year Ever"  + Butterflies Card


My second card features the “Butterflies” Framelits, along with the “Best Year Ever” stamp set and “Irresistibly Yours” Specialty Designer Series Paper.
The card base is Bermuda Bay, with layers of Coastal Cabana and Pool Party.
The words “YOU made MY DAY” are stamped in Bermuda Bay ink.
The Tag is made using the Angled Tag Topper Punch, and the “Irresistibly Yours” Specialty Designer Series Paper has been sponged with Coastal Cabana ink.
Two butterflies have been cut from Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana cardstock, using the gorgeous new “Butterflies” Framelits.   They are layered and secured to the Tag, and a flower has been placed on the centre of the butterfly.
I have two different cards pictured, as one has Seam Binding Ribbon in Pool Party tied through the Tag loop, the other has the SAB2015 "Best Year Ever" Accessory Pack Polyester Ribbon in Coastal Cabana.
The finishing touch is the Pearl Basic Jewel, which has been coloured with the Coastal Cabana Blendabilities, and anchors the card nicely.
For the Card Insert, the words “Best. Year. Ever.” are stamped on Naturals White cardstock in Bermuda Bay ink.
The stamp set “Best Day Ever” also has a lovely splotchy circles stamp, which I have used in the lighter colour of Coastal Cabana.
Wah-lah … "Best Year Ever"  + Butterflies Card done!

I also made an alternate/mash up version in Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant
