#CTC263 CASE the Colours of Kerchief Card Kit Week 1

Case the colours of the Kerchief Card Kit - Balmy Blue, Coastal Cabana, Early Espresso, Gold, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Petal Pink, Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, White. (I've crossed out the ones I didn't use!)

Yes, I caved and bought the Honey Bee bundle and am so pleased with it! For some reason I thought I had enough bee images but it appears there's always room for just one more (LOL)!!

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and sponged Coastal Cabana ink on the centre, then I dripped/flicked some water onto the sponged area and allowed it to dry. I've inked the greeting from Peaceful Moments but masked half off at a time and stamped on the top left, then the remainder on the bottom right using Night of Navy ink. Using the same ink I stamped a couple of bees (I think they look more like bugs actually!) and diecut them with the Detailed Bee dies. I've diecut a piece of Gold Foil sheet, not quite through, then I moved the die on my piece of foil turned it around and ran it not quite through, there was only a tiny bit that actually cut through. (This meant I ended up with a piece of honeycomb twice as big as the die if you don't see what I mean there) I've left a few of the hexagon pieces in and adhered all to the top of the sponged area.

When I was happy with the front, I added it to a mat of Night of Navy before adhering to a Coastal Cabana base. I then added a tiny Poppy Parade heart using the same dies. My bees (bugs) were added with Stampin' Dimensionals.

That honeycomb die is just the cutest! I think it will get a good workout here.

Last weekend hubby and I celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary, so this card was made for him! On the inside a Coastal Cabana beehive with a greeting from Well Said in Night of Navy, this time the bugs are departing the hive and there's the other little heart from the Detailed Bees dies.

Hope to see you play along! You have two weeks to choose your colour combination from above and make your card - then add using the link over on the right. Meantime please visit Peta and her stunning project:

#CTC262 CASE Koala Sketch Week 2

That's right - Week 2 of CASEing the Koala Sketch on page 34:

I decided to go with a shaker card this week. Using the Country Club DSP, I cut away three stitched Rectangles. I added Foam Adhesive strips to the edge of the DSP and filled it with Golf Club dies shapes - tees, clubs and balls. I had a couple of stamped golf balls in my stash and threw those in as well then added a spoonful of Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I then added a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock to keep everything in place then added it to my thick Whisper White cardbase. The greeting is from the Clubhouse stamp set and has been mounted on a scrap of Daffodil Delight cardstock before sticking it down. 

Suitable for either a man or a lady golfer in your life!

You can find another shaker card version with this suite on page 46 of your catalogue. 

I looked at the stitched rectangles sitting on my work surface and decided to make another card from it. I've added all three panels to a Whisper White mat and adhered to a base of Poppy Parade cardstock with Stampin' Dimensionals. The greeting from Floral Essence was a leftover from another project, and I mounted it to Daffodil Delight cardstock then adhered in place.  

Next I've added a couple of Silver Foil Golf Club dies and a tiny golf ball.

On the inside a simple Clubhouse image stamped with Black Memento ink:

#CTC262 CASE Koala Sketch Week 1

You have two weeks to make a card for this challenge - CASEing the Koala Sketch card on page 34 of the Mini Catalogue:

Thanks to Siobhan, we have a sketch graphic to help you along:
Image may contain: possible text that says 'Sentiment CASEING THE CATTY #262'

I've used Whisper White Baker's Twine around the background of Lily Impressions DSP and adhered it to a thick Whisper White card base, then added a bow

I chose the Over the Moon stamp set and fussy cut my images after colouring them with my Stampin' Blends. I've diecut some Stitched Rectangles using Mango Melody cardstock and adhered a cow to each panel before adding Stampin' Dimensionals and attaching the panels to the card.

I've masked the greeting and stamped it in a single row rather than the three lines on the stamp image, cutting banners at each end. 

Be sure to come back next week and see another round of cards based on the same sketch. We'd love to see you play along. Please now hop on over and check out the stunning project Rose has for you:
