#CTC369 CASE a Blending Brush Technique

CASE a Blending Brush Technique project:

I've used the card on the bottom right of Page 65:

My base card is Highland Heather. Using the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks, Highland Heather ink pad and Blending Brushes. I've created my background on Basic White cardstock, trimmed and attached it to the base.

The Peaceful Moments greeting is stamped in Granny Apple Green and diecut with one of the Rectangle Stitched Dies. After attaching that over to the right of the card I've finished with a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels. 

I like how the colour of the greeting pops but it leaves the masking as the showcase of the card.

We hope you can play along with a Blending Brush Technique project this week. Post your card to our Facebook page using the link over on the right before next Sunday evening.

Next up we have our friend Monique:

#CTC368 CASE Favourite Annual Catalogue Project

CASE Favourite Annual Catalogue Project:

I've chosen the image at the bottom centre of Page 20:

Happy Mother's Day! I really liked this card just the way it is and pretty much copied it for the Mums in our lives.

I've started with a base of Thick Basic White cardstock. Then I've cut a strip of the new Sun Prints DSP and adhered it to the base. The frame I opted to make using the Rectangle Stitched Dies with Pacific Point cardstock. The daffodils were diecut from Crushed Curry DSP for the intricate top layer with Dafffodil Delight for the base colour using the Daffodil Dies. I added Adhesive Sheet to the back of the Crushed Curry to make adhering the pieces together much easier. The leaves and stems are all diecut from Granny Apple Green cardstock using the Daffodil Dies as well. I've folded the reverse pattern of the Sun Prints DSP to wrap the daffodils and tied around the bunch with Linen Thread finishing with a bow. I've adhered this onto the frame and DSP.

The greeting from Daffodil Daydream was White Heat Embossed on Pacific Point DSP and diecut with the Beautiful Shapes Dies. Added to the card using Stampin Dimensionals.

What's your Favourite new Annual Catalogue Project? We hope you get a chance to play along with the Challenge this week, adding your card to our Facebook page using the link over on the right.

#CTC366 Farewell Annual Catalogue

Our last week to Farewell the Annual Catalogue:

Lest We Forget! ANZAC Day tomorrow was the inspiration for my card and I turned to the Painted Poppies for some ideas. Page 25 and the tag top left:

I started by making a tag with Real Red cardstock and punched the top with the (retired) Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Using Memento Black ink I've stamped the tall poppy from Painted Poppies a few times. I then threaded two pieces of Crinkled Whisper White Seam Binding and tied it off with another piece. The Basic White layer has been Clear heat embossed with the open poppy from Painted Poppies. I added this panel to a Real Red mat and attached to a base card of Basic Black.

I've attached the tag with Stampin' Dimensionals and added some Polished Dots. The greeting is diecut in Basic Black and Basic White using the Amazing Thanks Dies and adhered to the tag.. 

Red, Black and White are always a winning colour combination. So pleased to see the Painted Poppies will reappear in the new catalogue. 

Sorry you have to look close to see the clear embossing but I like the subtleness.

We hope you can join us this week as we Farewell the Annual Catalogue. Pop a photo of your creation on our Facebook page using the link over on the right.
