#CTC375 CASE Favourite Retiring Product

CASE your Favourite Retiring Product from the January - June Mini catalogue

I've turned to Page 55 and the Bragworthy card to the left:

I've kept the overall look very similar although didn't own any of the items used in the original. I've used a base of Thick Basic White. Next I've used the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder and swiped Sahara Sand ink over the outline side and embossed another piece of Basic White cardstock. This has been added in lieu of the DSP used above. I've used the same shelf of Basic Black cardstock. 

The bottle is Old Olive and punched with the Vintage Bottle Punch. Behind I've added foliage diecut with one of the Meadow Dies out of Blackberry Bliss cardstock. I had a couple of Hydrangea diecuts floating from my last project and added those to my bottle. The greeting is from Charming Sentiments, inked with Black Memento ink onto Basic White cardstock. I've used a similar diagonal DSP to the original although this one is from the Hostess DSP pack Design a Daydream. 

A mat of Blackberry Bliss was added and the greeting is hung on the wall rather than sitting on the shelf. 

The Design a Daydream DSP was the inspiration for the colours of the vase and foliage.

#CTC374 CASE Favourite Retiring Mini Bundle

CASE your Favourite Mini Catalogue Retiring Bundle:

This time I've chosen a bundle that is retiring although both the stamps and dies appear in the new Annual Catalogue. You'll find it on Pg 80 - the Hello Beautiful Bundle.

I've used a base of Pool Party. Onto a piece of scrap card I've laid strips of Texture Chic Specialty DSP along with a strip of Basic White then attached the panel to the base. 

The greeting from Go To Greetings is stamped in Soft Succulent onto the Basic White panel. I've cut a banner using a strip of Vellum Layering Designs and one of the diamond shape dies from Beautiful Shapes Dies cut the banner tail. Two hexagon dies on Petal Pink cardstock cut the hexagon frame and it was attached over the banner and greeting. To finish I've added a few Basic White hydrangeas cut using the Hydrangea Dies. 

This Specialty DSP is going to be a new favourite of mine I think. Looks so much better in real life!

We hope to see you play along with the challenge this week. Post the photo of your CASE of your Favourite Retiring Mini Bundle to our Facebook page using the link over on the right before next Sunday evening.

#CTC373 CASE an Embossing Project


CASE an Embossing Project from either the new Annual Catalogue or the soon to retire January-June Mini Catalogue:

I've chosen the square card on Page 47 which has been CASEd by some of the crew in previous challenges:

I've used Petal Pink card for all my layers including the base. The first layer was embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. The circles were cut using the Beautiful Shapes Dies and sponged around the edges with Petal Pink ink. 

The greeting stamped in the same colour ink is from the new Hostess set, Sit Stay Relax. After stamping the greeting I've added the circles to the top layer using Stampin' Dimensionals.

I've stamped the smallest pet image using Gray Granite ink onto Basic White cardstock and fussy cut then added it to the card choosing to omit the ribbon this time. .

It's not a big card, being 4 1/8" square but just a little different from my usual designs.

We hope you can find an Embossing Project to inspire you to join us with a challenge project this week. Post your card photo to our Facebook page using the link over on the right before next Sunday evening.

Next up we have a little bit of monkey business from Michelle:
