#CTC301 CASE a Sale-a-bration Project

CASE any project from the Sale-a-bration catalogue

I've chosen the image in the middle of Page 11:

Onto a base of Soft Sea Foam, I've attached a panel of In Good Taste DSP. Next I've fussy cut flowers from a sheet of Paper Blooms DSP and adhered them randomly leaving a gap for my greeting.

I've stamped a greeting from Lovely You in Night of Navy onto Whisper White cardstock using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch to get the right size and matted it using Night of Navy and the same punch. To finish I've added some of the green Flowers for Every Season Gems.

This was an easily replicated card and while I still had spare fussy cutting on my workspace, I decided to make another card. This time I chose one big flower and adhered the stem to the greeting and trimmed off so no white showed on the left of the stem. I've added mini Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the flower and greeting and stuck it onto the panel The clear Flowers for Every Season Gems were the finishing touch ... just because!

The crew would love to see you play along, use the link over on the right to add your picture to our Facebook Challenge page before next Sunday evening.

#CTC300 CASE the Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue


Choose any project to CASE from the new January - June Mini Catalogue:

I've used the top image on Page 23:

I've diecut a piece of Whisper White cardstock twice with a die from the Curvy Dies. The bottom piece has a greeting from Quite Curvy stamped in Balmy Blue ink. I've attached both pieces to a a mat of Paper Blooms DSP which is new from the Sale-a-bration catalogue. I've added this to a base of Balmy Blue cardstock.

Next I've stamped a bird in Night of Navy ink and coloured it with Petal Pink and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends before diecutting with the Curvy Dies. I've snipped a couple of pieces of Forever Gold Specialty DSP and adhered them to the border of the diecut. I've added a bow from the retired Old Olive Linen Thread and then popped the little bird in place to finish.

The crew would love to see your take on the Challenge this week, join our Facebook page and post your project using the link over on the right before next Sunday evening.

Next please visit Rebecca and her cute card:

#CTC296 Step Up a Mini Catalogue Project

#CTC296 Step Up a Mini Catalogue Project.

I've chosen the card on the left of Pg 28:

I've started with a basic card using stamps, ink and paper along with a punch... relatively #simplestamping. I've chosen Prized Peony for the images and Beautiful Friendship for the greeting. Each card has a 3" wide strip of Peony Garden DSP added to the right hand side.To ensure all my images looked the same, I've punched blanks using the Rectangular Postage Stamp punch and Whisper White cardstock. On the Stamparatus plate I've placed a piece of card with the negative remaining and secured it with the magnets then inserted each 'blank' in with the stamp of choice using Gray Granite ink.

Next I've stepped it up with a touch of colouring using Petal Pink and Light Daffodil Stampin' Blends but only colouring the shaded area and not the whole flower. A piece of Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon under the greeting and some Flowers for All Seasons gems

My next step up I've coloured all of the flower image with the same colour Stampin' Blends. I've added a strip of Forever Gold Specialty DSP along the edge of the Peony Garden DSP, and a small piece of foliage in the centre under the greeting. Each image has been embossed using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. The Organdy ribbon has been folded and stuck to the back of each embossed shape before being added in place using Stampin' Dimensionals. The same Flowers for All Seasons gems to finish.

This picture shows the a bit more of the detail:

And here you can see the transition from simple to more detailed:
