#CTC290 CASE the Colours of Plaid Tidings DSP

CASE the Colours of Plaid Tidings DSP: Basic Black, Blackberry Bliss, Bumblebee, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider, Crumb Cake, Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, Misty Moonlight, Pretty Peacock, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Seaside Spray, Shaded Spruce, Whisper White - that's a lot of colour, but don't worry, you don’t have to use them all!

I've managed to use nine I think. I've diecut using the Well Written Dies, Shaded Spruce leaves, Melon Mambo and Blackberry Bliss flowers, Bumblebee & Pumpkin Pie butterflies and a Misty Moonlight bird. Behind each flower is a tiny square of Bumblebee cardstock. And for the butterflies I've swapped the negative pieces. I've adhered them all to a top layer of Crumb Cake which was embossed with the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder and matted onto Whisper White cardstock.

I've used Stampin' Dimensionals to attach this layer to my base card of Mango Melody. The greeting is from Peaceful Moments using Blackberry Bliss ink onto Bumblebee cardstock and punched with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. To help it to pop a little I've used the Rectangular Postage Stamp punch and Whisper White cardstock to pop behind my greeting then adhered it to the top layer. I've added some of the Flowers for Every Season gems and finished by splashing around some Wink of Stella.

As you can see, what I should have been doing was mowing the lawns, but they'll still be there tomorrow! Here's the Wink of Stella picture:

There's such a range of colours to pick from this week, hopefully you'll be inspired to play along. Make your card and post the picture to our Facebook page by next Sunday evening using the link over on the right.

#CTC289 CASE a Halloween Project

CASE a Halloween Project:

I've used the tag on the far right page 65 of the Aug-Dec Mini Catalogue:

I've used a base of Gray Granite cardstock and my tag is cut from Peony Garden DSP. I've cut 3/4" strips of Petal Pink cardstock and used the Banner Triple punch to cut the end, then used that as a pattern to chop the other end, then I've embossed them all with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and adhered them haphazardly onto the tag. 

The greeting is from Zany Zebras in Gray Granite ink onto the same colour cardstock. I've used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch to cut it, then repeated with a mat of Whisper White and another of Gray Granite. My bow is the lovely Petal Pink Organdy Striped ribbon popped on with a Glue Dot. I've finished with butterflies in Gray Granite cardstock using the Butterfly Beauty Dies - much prettier than bats!

Next on the hop we have Monique and she has a super project to share:

#CTC288 CASE a Kit Card/Project from Either Catty

CASEing the Kit Card/Project from either catalogue this week:

I've chosen the image on the bottom far right.

I've embossed Whisper White cardstock with the Absolutely Argyle 3D Embossing folder, having spritzed lightly with water to make it not crack.

After adding that to a base card of thick Whisper White, I've punched the Red Velvet Paper with the Vases Builder Punch and selected some of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper images to use as my foliage. A tiny strip of In Good Taste DSP was my shelf and the greeting was from Lovely You using Night of Navy onto Whisper White and cutting the banner. Everything was adhered using my multi purpose glue

I love it, but wish you could see the texture, so here's another angle:

Next on the hop we have Judy!!
