Greetings friends! It’s Christine popping in with some awesome NEW inspiration from The Cat’s Pajamas for the March Release going on now! There are some delightful additions to this month’s release including digital patterned paper! It was a first for me to play with digital paper files, but it was a blast to have the versatility of printing only what you wanted.
I have two designs to show you today beginning with our favourite buddy bear in this set called The Little Things. I love that he’s holding up a sunflower, which is perfect for nods of support for Ukraine. He’s coloured with Copic Makers, with accents and shadows added with Prismacolor pencils.
To accent the design I used some TCP dies to frame him up, add some swirly accent, a bit of twine and a cute wood button. The honeycomb paper is from our new Happy Spring Papers. I picked up some 60 LB weight white paper and printed the selection and size of patterned paper I wanted. It was easy-peasy!
This next design was totally inspired by Amy Kolling who did a floral wreath a few years ago with buffalo plaid in the background, I loved it so much that I thought this would be the perfect time to use it as inspiration for this pretty wreath.
I’ve combined the Rabbit and Wreath cutable files (I’ve used the retired metal dies, but the files are the same), I just cut out the wreath and accents several times in different colours so I could combine them. Then I tucked in some of the Easter Eggs from the Happy Easter set and Easter Eggs in Baskets to fill in the wreath. The layers give it a nice 3D effect.
A bit of sparkle is added with holeless sequins and the added vellum softens the plaid, but still allows the pattern to show through.
The sentiment is from a retired TCP die, and works perfectly with its delicate font.
Here’s a peek at all of the new goodies I used! Thanks for joining me today.
