CTC145 Merry Little Christmas Cards

Hi Everyone & welcome to another week of CASEing the Catty.  This week we are casing my very favourite section in the holiday catalgoue, the Merry Little Christmas section from pages 10-19.

I have chosen to make 3 cards from this section as I haven't joined in the fun for such a long time!  My 1st card I have chosen to case is the card on the string that nice lady is holding .... well I presume she is nice! 

This card has a shaker element to it however, I was after a quick card that incorporated all the elements of the Carols Of Christmas bundle, minus the shaker part.

Here is my card:

I have used the Card Front Builder framelits to make a nice little frame & then the Merry Little Christmas DSP as a background for my little black deer.  I have also cut out some trees using the spotty DSP too.   Now I have to admit, I am not a huge fan of green & black for Christmas but it is growing on me & it took everything in me not to add lots of red! 

For my second card, this little box took my fancy.  I was too lazy to make this box but I did take inspiration from it to make a card.

Here is my inspired card.  

Instead of using the bauble which was just too chunky for my card, I used some large pearls & the holly punch to add holly instead of the sprigs. It just goes to show that you don't have to have everything in the catalogue to case something!

While I was playing with this fun suite,  I figured I may as well make another card using the Everyday Label punch & the Merry Little Labels stamp set.

I had a lot of fun creating again & hope to be back in the swing of joining in the fun CASEing the Catty challenges in the future.  

Next on the hop is the lovely Julia, where I am sure you will find even more to inspire you.

Colour INKspiration #08

It's time again for another Colour INKspiration blog hop.  Today we are working with some lovely earthy colours.  I have to admit I have never used these colours together.  I haven't used Tip Top Taupe or Delightful Dijon in ages so I am giving them one last hurrah before they leave us to make way for 5 new In Colours.

Here's the inspiration photo:

What comes to mind when you see these colours together?  I had an aha moment & decided to use my Best Birds bundle.  Surprisingly I have never inked up this stamp set, even with a blog called the Speckled Sparrow!  I have to say after making a few cards today with it I really love it.

Here is my card.

Best Birds Speckled Sparrow Card
 So, today as you can see, I have made a card for ME!  It's an interesting concept isn't it, making a card for yourself.   What would you make yourself?  Have I totally lost the plot?

As you can see this card is a little different. It has an acetate panel so you can see the beautiful grassy sunrise or is it a sunset?   I just love that Serene Scenery DSP.  The Delightful Dijon spots on the front are also from that DSP pack.

Acetate Panel Best Birds
 I have added a little oval & scallop background for the sentiment. I chose this one for me however, it would make a nice card for any occasion.  I stamped my sparrow in Early Espresso onto watercolour paper & let it sit for a little while. I then coloured the bird in using Soft Suede, Delightful Dijon & Tip Top Taupe with an Aqua Painter.  I added a smidge of Garden Green for the leaves & a piece of Linen Thread.

Here is the inside of the card.  I left a vanilla panel to the left of the card to write a little note.  I just might send it on to someone else one of these days.  After making this card, I am really sad to see these colours retire! 

During the week I made another card using all carrying over items plus a little bit of a sneak peek NEW stamp set & punch, using the same bird.   

I have used the new In Colour Berry Burst ink for the little bird's belly along with Cherry Cobbler.  The sentiment is from Hang Your Stocking stamp set & the lovely new punch & stamp set sneak peek is a new bundle coming soon called Label Me Pretty. 

Next on the hop is Denita with her lovely project.  Click the next blog button to head on over to her blog & continue the hop.
