CTC#110 -Party Animal Suite, Quick and Easy cards and tags

Welcome back to the New Year and New Stamp sets!!
And a big Welcome to Mel Pagano - our newest designer. Be sure and visit her blog on the hop and leave her a happy hello comment.
How exciting that the New Occasions Catalogue is now available. This week we kick off the Celebrations with Birthdays!!! - You can never have enough birthday cards. After all the fuss of Christmas January always seems a good time to takes things simply. So todays' cards use a simple design - straight from the Catalogue.

The beauty of the Birthday Celebrations set is that it coordinates with the Ballon Builder Punch- so if you don't yet own a Bigshot you can still create gorgeous cards with this set. This simply uses the punch and some patterned DSP.  To step it up you can emboss the base card, or add some DSP which is what I did for card#2. I'm using the current In Colours to create a bunch of samples at the moment, they are so bright and fresh.


This version uses DSP from the Sale-A Bration set Carried Away. , and one of the new metallic and masculine Embellishments.


 But if you don;t have the new set you can still use the same layout with your existing stamps, like this example using Vertical Greetings.


And then because I had the bigshot and thinlits out I wanted to explore what to do with some of the other thinlits, so I created a few tags. These were quick and easy and used 5cm strips of varying lengths. The DSP is called Cupcakes and Carousels and is a fun new Colour Palette which I would not have thought to combine.


These were fun. Now you can have fun hopping round the circle to see all the fabulous creations by the CTC team. ON the circle you have come from Kathryn, but you can find the full crew here.





Starting this week we now have a Facebook page where you can enter your creation and join in the fun. We'd love to see what you are inspired to make from this week's topic. You don't need to have a blog you can creat a project and upload your photo to the group if you are a member. If you would like to join our group we'd love to have you. You'll find the link HERE or you can click on the banner below to take you there.

thanks for looking, 
Liz

  2. Love your cards and tags. They all look great and they all are a great way to show off a case from the catty. Love the different colours and ideas. Did you hand draw the balloon strings? Or is that one of the stamps in the set?
