Celebrate Leaves and Trees CTC#287



This week at CASE-ing The Catty we are CASE-ing a leaf or tree project from the mini catalogue. Most projects in the mini catalogue seem to have leaves, and so Poinsettia Place Suite provided my inspiration project.


Sunflowers cheer me up, I try to grow them every year, with mixed success! After I saw fields of them in Italy during a wonderful trip to my husband's homeland, I've had this obsession. We were supposed to spend 3 weeks in Italy again this year, but Covid-19 put a stop to that.


Celebrate Sunflowers is a fabulous stamp set, with co-ordinating dies which are 10% off if you buy them as a 'bundle'. A few stems from Forever Fern have been added to the arrangement.


The designer series paper is Gilded Autumn SDSP, and actually this is the reverse of a gilded piece, often the 'B' side is just as lovely.


It's easy to 'pretty up' the inside with a stamp and strip of Gilded Autumn SDSP.


The flower centre has been sponged before three Flowers For Every Season Gems were added.





The talented Tina Gillespie is next designer to visit on this Blog Hop

Under My Umbrella


Sometimes you just have to have a stamp because it's so cute, you love the sentiment or whatever, but sadly, sometimes after the initial excitement of getting them, you don't use them. I found it hard to believe that I'd done that with Under My Umbrella.

When I mentioned it to team members, I was challenged to ink it up last night, and I love a challenge! Had to finish colouring the umbrellas this morning and put the card together but what a fun stamp and punch. I shared a little tip or two on Facebook Live today, over on my business page.

Emma Goddard, The Coastal Stamper had shared a card with masked umbrellas, and you can see her's here, but mine has ended up totally different in the end.


 

Here is another card where I haven't needed the umbrella punch at all, and some of the flowers were fussy cut. My remote-learning class next month uses Paper Pumpkin Box of Sunshine, and it seems to me that Under My Umbrella is a great partner stamp for this one.
