My post today is using the gorgeous “Beautiful You” from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. Last week, we had a challenge to create a card or project using something from the new Occasions Catalogue. Well, with everything going on, I have only just managed to do mine, but hey, better late than never.
In fact, I’ve created the cards to send out to my customers in January. I did a couple in each colour.
Have you noticed the “Brick Wall”? I created that with the Early Espresso Watercolour Pencil & then softened the lines & a little blending with my Blender Pen. I also “Paper Pieced” my dress.
Just a reminder to use the January Hostess Code when placing an order Online, as you will receive a free gift at the end of the month.

My card today is one I cased from Naomi but changed it out to suit what I wanted to do.
In fact, not only did I use Washi Tape to create my card, but I’ve added strips of Peekaboo Peach & Basic Black Card mixed in. I used the “Faux Stitching” Technique on it which just happens to be one our techniques for November. Be sure to go & check out our Technique Page.
I must say one thing – since beginning this idea, I am finding I am actually using my WashiTape & will be happy that I may not have any left over come the end of the current Catalogue. Usually I have a heap of it left.
It’s quite a simple & easy card but one with a bit of a WOW!

I’m not sure if you have noticed that there are new “Decorative Masks” in the 2016 Occasions Catalogue so I’m doing a bit of a happy dance at the moment as I love them!
I decided to create a couple of “Thank You” Cards using these Masks. As I’m not one for creating multiples of the same card, I used each of the Masks (set of 4) to create my Cards, but they are generally the same layout.
For those of us who are Demos, you may or may not recognize the layout of today’s card – it is a case from Page 11 of the latest “Stampin’ Success” Magazine.
To give it a bit more of a “WOW”, I’ve flicked a little bit of the Gold Wink of Stella over the sponging
A small tip for you when using Masks, be sure to tape your Mask down over your Card or they will slip & slide all over the place. Retired Washi Tape is just perfect for this!

Tomorrow sees the release of our new Technique Treats, so be sure to pop on back to check them out!
Today is “Washi Wednesday” which means we have a card using Washi Tape.
Again, it is a very easy card but with a little bit of a WOW. It is not my idea, as I found one on Pinterest but sort of turned it into my own. In fact I had picked up the “Pop of Pink”Washi Tape to use, remember seeing the card & went with it. Thank you so much for your inspiration.
If you don’t have Washi Tape, don’t forget you could try using strips of DSP to create the card.

It’s Wednesday today, which means its “Washi Wednesday” where we get to create cards using the lovely Washi Tape.
I did these cards a couple of weeks ago for some Thank You Cards for my customers. I ended up doing a couple of each which is unusual for me as I don’t often create a number of the same cards, but I love how quick & easy cards are able to be created using Washi Tape. You don’t have to have a couple of layers like I have, you could easily just create using your Base Card.

I’ve used the Emboss Resist Technique on my card today. It happens to be one of the Techniques from our current Technique Treats, along with the Double Embossing Technique. I will be honest & say that this is one of my favourite techniques. All kinds of possibilities. I’ve also used the “Swirly Bird” Bundle.
I wasn’t too sure what I was going to do with the piece once I had created it, but then decided to cut it into pieces to create a Mosaic Background. I’m very happy with the card now.
