Colour Creations - Pretty Peacock

http://whatcathymade.com.au/?p=3844

Hi Everyone, Here we are again with another of the 2019 - 2021 In Colours and this one is called "Pretty Peacock" and it is a lovely peacock bluey/green colour. I really don't think my photo's do it justice. This week I did struggle a bit with finding just the right elements for my card but this is what I came up with (I hope you like it).


I used the nesting dies from the Free as a Bird bundle and cut out the 2nd smallest one several times and layered them onto some Silver Foil Sheet with a rather large gap between them and the glued this to a white card base (not sure the white works well) but the pretty peacock didn't look right either.
I then stamped the flowers from the Floral Essence bundle on the vellum and punched them out, I added faceted gems to the centres of the flowers to finish them off. I then stamped my sentiment using Versa Mark and silver Embossing powder I place the tag onto the front of the card using dimensionals and then punched out the smallest butterfly from the Butterfly Gale punch and added this to the tag.

 
For the inside of the card I used a Pretty Peacock layer and white and did my stamping in Pretty Peacock ink. Simple but effective. All the items used in this project can be found in the New 2019 - 2020 Annual Catalogue, if you would like to purchase all and any of the product for this project please give me either a Call, Email or PM so that I can help you with your purchase.

Colour Creations - Rococo Rose

http://whatcathymade.com.au/?p=3823
Well Hello Everyone,
Yes we are back for another 5 weeks of the Colour Creations and they are the 5 New 2019 - 2021 In Colours. To kick off the extra weeks we are starting the a beautiful dusty rose colour called "Rococo Rose" it's soooo pretty I think it will be a real winner for the people who love pinks.


I started out with a Rococo Rose card base and stamped the front of the card in the matching ink for the tone on tone effect using the "Floral Essence" stamp set (which I think I will end up wearing out) I have used this set so much that it's say NO NOT ME AGAIN!!.........lol  but I think this is one of my favourites from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. You will find this on page 107 of the catalogue and if you buy it as a bundle with the matching punch you can save 10%, so why not take a look.


I also used the Thoughtful Banners stamp set (retired) to stamp Birthday on the front of the card and the Happy is from the Merry Christmas to All Bundle (Page 68). I then stamped the other flower around the edge of some whisper white card and then stamped the leaves and coloured them in using my marker pen. I mounted the white layer onto some glitter card and then added dimentionals to this and place it on the front of the card at an angle to add a fun element.


I stamped another piece of whisper white for the insert with the other flower from the same stamp set and the sentiment also comes for that set as well.
If you would like to purchase the products used in this project please give me either a call, email, or PM so that I can help.

Colour Creations - Tranquil Tide

http://whatcathymade.com.au/?p=3778 
Hi Everyone, it is with sad heart that we are now at the end of this lovely Colour Creations Blog-Hop. This is the last colour of the current colour pallet, we may be lucky enough to be able to bring you the 5 new In Colours for 2019 - 2021. The lucky last colour is Tranquil Tide and it will be retiring on the 3rd June 2019 so sad as I really love this colour. it may be a dark colour but i still love it.
So along with the beautiful DSP that is also retiring sad times all round.
I have managed to use so product that are either new or carrying over and they are the Tropical Chic and Floral Essence Bundle. I have made another fancy fold card called a corner fold (which I will be making a YOUTUBE Video of in late June or early July) I think it is a lovely effect and very easy to do.When I stamped my flower I stamped 2 on Whisper White and 2 on Vellum to give the look of a really full flower I really like this effect as well, I then added a faceted Silver gem to the centre of the flower.
I stamped my sentiment on the front using the White ink, and as said before the leaves are from the Tropical Chic stamp set and dies.
I decided to follow the same look to the inside of the card by added DSP and a Tranquil Tide panel and then I added a small White panel for writing onto. I thought this would add a little different view to the insert.
With most of the items used in this project retiring You will find it hard to purchase them, But the Floral Essence Bundle is a joy to use and I have made so many project with it already that I think I have worn out the stamps already hehehe......
If I can help you with any of the product used in this project please don't hesitate to give either a call, email or PM so that I can assist you.

Colour Creations - Soft Suede

http://whatcathymade.com.au/?p=3756
Hi everyone, Well here we are with only one more colour after this of the Colour Creations Blog-Hop. So sad to see it coming to an end. This week our colour is Soft Suede which is a really love brown (not to light and not to dark). To me it's a really lovely masculine colour that sits so well with a lot of the new masculine stamp sets coming out on the 4th June 2019. I have used it as a kind of Sepia colour in my card along with a retired stamp set, that I know will be sadly missed by so many people around the world myself included "Lovely as a Tree".

I started out with a very vanilla card base and added a soft suede layer to the front before stamping onto another very vanilla card. other than the sun/moon in the picture I only used soft suede to make the clouds and the ground before stamping 3 layers of the trees I added some birds flying over head to finish off the front of the card along with Happy Birthday that I stamped and punched out using the classic label punch. At first I thought it looked a bit over the top with so much of the same colour but my Husband said he liked it so that was good enough for me (as his not big on compliments with my card making). Not that he doesn't like them he just isn't big on compliment in general so when he says is good I know he really likes it. Sorry about the blabbering on.

As I had used the thick Very Vanilla card I didn't need to add any layers to the inside of the card. So I stamped only half of the trees along with the birds on the right-hand side and just added a small sentiment to finish it off.  It's simple but enough. All the Items used in this project can be found in the 2018-2018 Annual Catalogue but be quick as there is very little time left to purchase retiring products like the "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set. If you would like to purchase these products please give me a call, email or PM so that I can help you with your purchase.
