CTC #101 - Holiday Bundle

Welcome to another CTC Sunday Blog Hop, this week we are taking our inspiration from the lovely collection of bundles in the holiday  Annual catalogue. Oops, I misread the challenge this week and went with the holiday catalogue instead of the Annual Catalogue!  On the upside I have used some of the lovely DSPs from the Annual catalogue in my cards!

I am using two bundles for my inspiration this week, firstly this card featuring the Holly Berry Happiness bundle was my inspiration for the layout of my card.  I then used my faviourite holiday bundle Paisleys & Posies bundle to create them.

As you know if you visit my blog regularly that I love the Floral Boutique DSP and the Copper Foil Sheets, and I used them both in my first card.  The sentiments are from Birthday Blossoms stamp set which I lined up using my Stamp-a-ma-jig and added the line under the Happy Birthday with a Stampin' Write Marker.

Once I had made one I was inspired to re-create the layout using some other DSPs. This one uses the more masculine colours of the Moroccan DSP and I have paired it with Gold Glimmer Paper instead of the copper foil sheets.

Finally I decided to go quite femanine with this card using Blooms & Bliss DSP and matching Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper.  

I really can't decide which I like best, but this is a great layout to use up DSP, and could be changed to fit any occasion with a different sentiment.

I hope you have been inspired to join in this week, just take inspiration from one of the many bundles in the Holiday Annual Catalogue then add a picture of your project to the link on hte main page.

Time to hop on over to Rachel's blog to see which of the bundles inspired her this week.

Happy Stamping
