Casing the Catty - CTC69 - Challenge

I've been looking at the designers' lovely creations on the Stampin' UP! Challenge Blog "Casing the Catty" for a little while now.  Somehow, all those times I looked, I missed the fact that anyone can participate! So I'm putting this out there for all my customers and followers, and encouraging you to participate! I guess I was just looking the creations and not really reading the blog.

CTC is about looking at the pages in the Catalogues and choosing a project that inspires a creation for you to make. CTC69 is showcasing inspiration from Love Blossoms section, pages 16-25 of the 2016 Occasions Catalogue.

With that in mind, I just created my own thing using the 6 x 6 "Love Blossoms" DSP.

 As you can see, I made a 3 x 3 card with a DSP covered envelope flap on the envelope, and a small gift bag on the "Gift Bag Punch Board". I just now I see that the flowers I fussy cut to put on the bottom part of the tag on the bag didn't get put on before I took the photos!

Here is a better look at the 3 x 3 card.

And here is a look at the inside of the little card.

This would be great for Easter, wouldn't it. Or even Mother's Day!

You should hope on over to the blog to see what the Design team has put together casing these catalogue pages.

I had fun, and I know that you will too.

Happy creating!

The buds on the flower stems look like you could pick them. Any time I see these flowers I want t pick one!

Sabrina I'm so glad you played along with us - and nice to know that you have been watching along for a while too. I am in awe of your fussy cutting, and your sweet set is just lovely. -always love a decorated envelope to match - will have to do more of the reverse flap like this instead of hiding the prettiness inside.
