My favourite bundle in the whole catalogue (this week) is the Celebration Time bundle. It has so many great elements to it and makes whipping up detailed, yet quick, projects a breeze. I have teamed it with my other new favourite (for this week anyway) - Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). Plus I've used new ribbons and trim ... okay ... I might have a few too many favourites!
I have so many ideas of how I want to use this Celebration Time bundle. There is so much scope but as usual time got the better of me. I had visions of tags, shaker cards and so much more. More ideas for next time I guess. This is what I came up with. (Apologies, trying to capture shine and white is difficult!).
I have taken inspiration from a card that I love by Mindy Bingamon, member of the Artisan Design team and a card I made a while back. My original card came about because of operator error. I cut the cardstock the wrong size, added adhesive and decided to just go with a 'design feature' of an overhang. I always make sure it will still fit into a standard C6 envelope though.
This stamp set has such great fonts and images and the thinlits are so detailed that they do the work for you. The new Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adds some background texture.
And a bit of mini black and silver sequin trim and some Pool Party Baker's twine helps lift the design.
Have you discovered the different washi tape packs yet. I love the Pick a Pattern pack. It has lots of different widths. Just perfect to add to my card inside.
I cut 2 cakes - 1 silver and one with the font - and cut the bow and stand off the top layer and adhered over the silver. That's what I love about this bundle - so quick and easy to whip up great, detailed cards. In our time-poor lives you have to love 'minimum effort, maximum effect' cards!
Now that Foil Frenzy DSP - Love it!
I love the Lemon Lime Twist with black. A card for many occasions. We all need those in our stash! Add in some ombre ribbon and more mini sequin trim and ... well.. what more do you need??? I can see me making up this design with the other colours in the Foil Frenzy DSP.
The banner stamp coordinates with the banner thinlit in the Large Numbers thinlits set. I'm am sure you could add more detail to the inside but I was running out of puff!
I couldn't resist whipping up a Berry Burst version at the last minute. I've added candles this time and check out that bow. Isn't it the cutest?
Normally I would add more detail to my card insides but if you are pushed for time like I have been this set has some great images to quickly add some detail.
If you haven't discovered this Celebration Time bundle yet you really should check it out. I think you will love it.
