#CTC253 Come to Gather Suite




CASEing the Come to Gather Suite pages 46 - 51 of the Holiday Catalogue this week:

Image may contain: food and text

I've picked the card top right of page 47:


I've gone back to my old favourite card base of thick Whisper White and mounted it with a sheet of Garden Lane DSP. 

I've used Nature's Roots dies to cut the rose leaves from the Mossy Meadow mat I went with. My co-ordinating colour is Pear Pizzazz and that was for more rose leaves. 

Do you read the tips in the catalogues? Well this time I did and went with it. After diecutting my leaves I spritzed them with water before doing the embossing details. Worked a treat!

I've stamped some roses with the Forever Lovely stamp set in Petal Pink onto Whisper White and cut them out. My foliage at the top right is Mint Macaron cardstock using the Lovely Flowers dies.The ribbon and bow are made with the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo pack and the Birthday Wishes is a 'spare' on my craft desk from a recent project using Varied Vases. Love using up those spare 'bits' - stamped in Pretty Peacock, I think it adds just enough variety to make it fit.


Don't forget to play along. Make your card to fit the brief and post to our Facebook page using the link over on the right. Time to visit Monique and see what she has for us this time:

#CTC252 CASE a Layout on Page 52




This week the crew are CASEing a layout on page 52 of the Holiday Catalogue:

I have randomly selected the top left of this layout. The little coffin boxes reminded me of the Tailored Tag punch and that's where I began.

I chose the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP. I used a strip and cut it in half then adhered it to a base of thick Whisper White cardstock. I've punched 7 Tailored Tags from a different sheet of the same DSP and sponged the edges with Soft Suede. My gears were cut from the Garage Gears dies and backed with Whisper White cardstock and sponged around the edges and over the white to grunge it up. The car from Geared Up Garage was stamped in Black Memento Ink onto Crushed Curry cardstock and diecut from the same set of dies as mentioned earlier. The car was adhered to the cogs, and the whole piece was raised with Stampin' Dimensionals. The greeting was to balance my card and in lieu of the ribbon used in the original, Memento Black with a set of cogs behind.


Sorry, couldn't help showing off one of my beautiful peony roses. My garden has been calling even though the weather has not played in my favour until this long Labour weekend in NZ. My body is now reminding me I am getting older lol.

Time now to see what our lovely Tina has to show you. Feel free to play along posting your photo to our Facebook page using the link over to the right:

#CTC251 - CASE Brightly Gleaming DSP with Layout from Pg 30




This week the crew are CASEing a layout from pg 30 of the Holiday Catalogue:

No photo description available.

I have chosen the card on the bottom left of the picture above

Starting with a base of thick Very Vanilla, then adding a full height, wide strip of Noble Peacock Specialty DSP, turned 90 degrees to display it so the stripes represented the horizontal lines on the original. I've added a layer of vellum which was embossed with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.

Next I've stamped an image from So Many Stars in Night of Navy, Pretty Peacock and Seaside Spray onto Very Vanilla, They were diecut with a matching sized Stitched Stars die and adhered to the vellum with a line drawn to the top by hand. The Sprig punch was used to  cut some Noble Peacock foil sheets (in Pretty Peacock) and it was cut at the half way mark then adhered along the top of the vellum. Some Stitched Shapes stars from the flourish image have been added as bling. The greeting was from Itty Bitty Christmas stamped in Pretty Peacock and cut using a Layering Circles die.


Thanks for stopping by. Time now to pop over to the fabulous Rose and her amazing project. Please feel you can play along, all you need is to create a card with the brief mentioned, add your hastag #CTC251 and post to our Facebook page with the link over to the right.
