CTC #88 - Everyday Occasions

Welcome to another CASEing the Catty blog hop, this week we are taking another look at the Every Day Occasions section of the catalogue, it was just so big and full of inspiration we thought it needed another look.

I have taken inspiration from the beautiful Moroccan themed suite of products, in particular the lovely gift bag in the left of the above photo.

I turned the bag into a card, and wanted the deep colours of the Dapper Denim to shine, so used that as the base of my card as well as one of the banner pieces.  TO add just a little but of depth I also sponged the edges of the DSP with Dapper Denim ink.  I really think this deepens the colour of the DSP.  You might notice that the sentiment is a little speckled, this is actually sparkle that didn't photograph very well.  I was going to emboss in clear, however the only clear embossing powder I have had Dazzling Diamonds mixed in!  Guess what is on my next order!

Please join us this week by taking your own inspiration from the catalogue's Everyday Occasions section and add a link to your project to this months linkie on the main CTC Blog.

Time to hop on over to see what Elizabeth has created, I know she has a sneak peek in there for you of a new product available in August!

Happy Stamping


  1. Oh your card showcases this gorgeous DSP so perfectly. I love all those banners and what a great idea to sponge the edges. I agree it does give lots more depth.

  2. Lovely card Monique - the Dapper Denim really sets it off! Kelly x

  3. Nothing wrong with a bit of sparkle Monique!! I do love this paper and you have showcased it so well.

  4. Monique all these colours look fab together, love the way you have sponged to add some depth, also love the sparkly sentiment, just adds that final touch! Gotta love those gold binder clips, mine came the other day and I can't wait to use them on something.

  5. I like the sparkle on your stamp!! This paper is so stunning, I can't wait to try it out.
