#CTC186 - Birthday

Hello again, here we are CASEing the Birthday section, pages 66-79

I happened to have been playing with the Best Bunny bundle on page 36 recently, and had a little fellow just waiting for a card to hop onto. I found it on page 77:

I went with a card base of Blackberry Bliss (loved this colour when it was last here and pleased to welcome it back!). The Detailed Floral thinlits provided the cutouts of my Whisper white layer, which I've wrapped with Silver Baker's Twine adding a bow, and popped onto the base with Stampin' Dimensionals. In lieu of a scalloped circle, I've used a Mint Macaroon shape cut from the Foliage Frame framelits. I've cut a Whisper White circle with the Layering Circles framelits, and used Pineapple Punch to sponge the colour behind my featured Best Bunny. This is a co-ordinating Punch and stamp set, and he has 3 delightful expressions to choose from. I've stamped this guy in Gray Granite and used the (retired) Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends to colour with.  The greeting is stamped in Blackberry Bliss and comes from the set Happy Birthday Gorgeous, with a little banner punched at each end.  A few iridescent sequins to finish.

Hope you feel inspired to play along and post using the link over on the right. Meanwhile, please pop in and see what Rachel has created for us this week:

#CTC185 - Best Route

We're CASEing from pages 52-65 this week!

For me it was page 52 itself - did you notice these folders on the right hand side of the large picture?

That was my inspiration!. Even though I don't (yet!) own this set of DSP (Designer Series Paper), I liked the combination of the Blueberry Bushel and Mango Melody and created my own.  I've also chosen to CASE the layout of two of the folders as well. Both cards have Crumb Cake cardstock for the base.  

The left sample has a Blueberry Bushel banner embossed with Layered Leaves 3D TIEF and the top strip was the DSP I created using strips of Mango Melody cardstock attached to Whisper White and then lines were drawn by hand with a black marker pen. A silver foil plate made using the Layering Squares framelits was popped over the bird image and greeting from Hedgehugs.  

The right hand card has a banner of  DSP created using Handwritten stamped in Blueberry Bushel with the mushroom image from Hedgehugs randomly stamped in Mango Melody. The Blueberry Bushel strip was added after having a Hedgehugs flower image self stamped with Blueberry Bushel ink, then Hedgehugs again provided a greeting and image which was placed under another silver foil plate. Relatively quick and easy, but more so if you actually have the DSP! Check with your Demonstrator about the special "Buy 3 Get 1 free" offer for July!

Feel free to join us and make a card then post using the link over on the right.  Meantime, please pop in and see what our lovely friend Angela has lined up for us this week...

#CTC184 - Delightfully Detailed

This week sees us CASEing a project from pages 38-51.

I've used the image in the top right of the photo on the left hand side of page 48:

Again I've CASEd the layout. Aren't those little critters cute? Unfortunately they don't relate to anything in our country, so in the meantime I'll admire what everyone else creates with them. 

I've gone back to my cute Granny image from You've Got Style in place of the critter. She's been coloured with Stampin' Blends and fussy cut. I've switched the DSP and embossed pieces around, to make the most of the beautiful Petal Promenade DSP. The card base is Mossy Meadow and the embossed section is Blushing Bride using the Basket Weave TIEF. The two largest Stitched Shapes circles were used to cut the frame in Calypso Coral. I've added a piece of retired Lemon Lime Twist mini striped ribbon and the greeting is from Painted Glass inked in Mossy Meadow.

The lady looks like she is off to celebrate at a garden party - least she'll be warm! What's a party without a little bling, not sure if you can see it, but I've broken out the Wink of Stella for the drink and jewellery:

Don't forget to play along, using the link over on the right sidebar. Let's now visit the lovely Rebecca and find out what she's created for us this week:
