Personalised Christening Wishes

I had the pleasure of being asked to make a personalised Christening card last week.

For me, the personal touch is one of the biggest bonuses of making cards!

My inspiration for the layout came from Vanessa Webb’s beautiful anniversary card.

I love all the layers & texture of this style of card.

How I told you how much I love those doilies???  I bet I have!!!

And the Stitched Shapes – oh my!

So many pretty things to love – and make into sweet personalised cards like this one.

Colour INKspiration #05

Did you love the colours from last fortnight for Colour INKspiration?

We had so many people enjoying the bold & beautiful purple & yellows!!

This week for Colour INKspiration, we take a softer turn into the pastels.

Colour INKspiration #5

This trio of colours lend themselves so nicely to so many occasions!

My initial thought was a pretty wedding card…

I had the idea to create the background piece by repetitively die cutting the floral centrepiece die (hexagon shaped die) from the Window Box Thinlits until the cardstock piece was covered.

I then overlayed it on the bokeh piece of DSP from the Falling In Love DSP.  This DSP pack is perfect for this challenge!!!

Once the background was finished, I added my sentiment on an oval stitched shape and decorated with a pink flower & blue butterfly.

Sometimes finding ways to keep within the constraints of the challenge colours is the best fun of a colour challenge!


I loved the wedding card, but  I couldn’t shake off the idea of using these colours for a baby card.

How cute are these little babies from the Moon Baby stamp set?

This card for some oh-so-cute twin boys born just a little while ago.

Even though it was a traditional baby blue theme I was going for, the pink worked beautifully for a shower of hearts as they drifted down!

I’m so happy with this card!!!

One of the things I love most about CASEing the Catty is the layout inspiration – it’s always a wonderful starting point!

I turned the card at the bottom right into a wedding card…
