Here we are with a new year and a new Occasions Catalog along with Sale a Bration. Now that most of the painting is done and the floors are almost finished, I need to go into what was once my craft room which is now a temporary store room while all the work is being done. I managed to climb over a few things and find my boxes of pre ordered goodies, which hadn't even been opened yet, to create my contributions to this hop. Our circular order allows you to come 2 ways to each blog. If you started at the beginning you are coming from Priscilla's blog. Once again she has added to my CASE list. If you came from the other direction, you arrived from Jean's blog. It is so nice to have her back in the "loop" again. I love her creativity.
My first project uses the first item I ordered during pre order time. It is the beautiful Mediterranean Moments set. Both of my projects use the Watercolor Pencils for coloring. I have been hoping for a long time that they would bring them back. I kept the old ones so I have a few other colors as well.
The card base is Pacific Point, layered with Melon Mambo and Hello Honey. I used Timeless Textures and Hello Honey ink on the Hello Honey layer. Linen thread added the embellishment for this card. Italy is definitely on my bucket list.
My next project is my favorite from the Sale a Brations catalog. Hey, Chick. Such a cute set. This made a perfect birthday card for my sister though it will be a little late.
The base card is made with Whisper White Thick CS. The front layers are Melon Mambo, Festive Birthday DSP and Tempting Turquoise along with a touch of Hello Honey. I used the Layered Circles dies for my die cuts. On the inside I used Tempting Turquoise, more of the Festive Birthday DSP and some Washi Tape from the Affectionately Yours collection. The Large Polka Dot EF added the texture that I wanted.
I hope you enjoyed my cards. It was so nice to be able to open those boxes and play. Now I'm fired up for the next hop in about 2 weeks.
