#CTC203 - Hostess Set - Both Catalogues


Choose either catalogue and the hostess section to create a card then add it to our Facebook page using the link on the right. You have an extra week as the crew take a break next week while many of us are attending an Onstage event.
I was drawn back to the annual catalogue and loved the look of embossing on the Wood Textures DSP at the top:


I've switched orientation and used thick Very Vanilla cardstock for my base card. I've had my white embossing powder for a while and I now think it is more Vanilla coloured, but it still works for me!  The lovely flowers from the hostess set "Very Vintage" are heat embossed. I loved the way they turned out and will definitely be using this idea again. I've used Very Vanilla baker's twine to wrap around the card, and added a bow. In lieu of the green cardstock, I've used Gorgeous Grape cardstock and ink, and another image from Very Vintage. The greeting choice is from Bubble Over, stamped in Gorgeous Grape onto Very Vanilla with a banner cut at the end. This was all popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.


Let's pop over and see what Monique has for us this week:

#CTC202 - Favourite Holiday Tags


So many choices this week as we CASE our favourite holiday tag.


With all that choice, I've ended up on the back cover and the tag on the top right:


I've shifted it up a notch to a Christmas card, using a base of thick Whisper White. I've die cut some Pretty Pine thinlits pine tree leaves in Old Olive as my feature.  The tag part is my top layer of whisper white, and the background I've opted for is stamped with the doily from the hostess set "Very Vintage".  Each time it has been stamped off once, to lighten the image  I've used Gold Glimmer paper for my banner instead of the red above, snipped with the Banner Triple punch at each end. I've then staggered the pine die cuts in a kind of wreath pattern and added a pine cone die cut in Soft Suede.  I've then added the greeting (from "Making Christmas Bright") which was stamped in Old Olive, and the word 'Bright' has been gold heat embossed. It was cut using a circle shape from Stitched Shapes Framelits. I've then added another two pine cone diecuts and finished off with Metallic Pearls


Thanks for stopping by. It would be great if you were to play along, create your CASE of your favourite holiday tag, and add it to our Facebook page using the link on the right.  Time to pop over and see Rebecca's creation, which was one of the tags I was considering, but love what she's done with it...

#CTC201 - Holiday Catalogue Cover


This week the crew are CASEing the front and back of the holiday catalogue:


I've gone for the star of the show, and switched out the gift box below for a card:


I've gone back to a CASE of the layout. I've used a thick Whisper White card base, with the luscious Frosted Floral Specialty DSP as the my front layer. Such gorgeous colours, and Blackberry Bliss strips of cardstock are my 'ribbon'. A punched circle of Blackberry Bliss over the strips, with a whisper white die cut Flourish Thinlit. A diecut frame from Petals & more Thinlits in Whisper White for the greeting, which comes from Hand Delivered and stamped in Mint Macaron. Thanks for stopping by...


Please play along, make a card, and then use the link over on the right to add to our Facebook page. Meantime, let's see the great creation Liz has to show us this week:
