#CTC341 - Case a Glittery/Sparkly Project from either Catalogue



CASE a Glittery/Sparkly Project from either Catalogue


For me, I've turned to Page 44 of the Mini Catalogue and the top middle card:
 

I've used a base card of Early Espresso and added the identical piece of Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP. I've used the Gold & Rose Metallic Specialty Paper and a die from Meadow Dies to cut my foliage. Instead of using the whole piece, I've snipped a couple of branches and turned them upside down adhering all the pieces onto the DSP. A panel of another piece of Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP has been laid over the top of that with a strip of Gold & Rose Metallic Specialty Paper and then the greeting.

The greeting from Quiet Meadow has been stamped in Early Espresso ink onto Basic White and diecut with another die from Meadow Dies. In lieu of the stamped foliage in the original, I've diecut a butterfly from Meadow Dies and added that to finish.


This lush DSP makes a simple card seem much more special..

#CTC340 CASE a Bundle from Pgs 65-71



CASE a Bundle from Pages 65-71 of the Mini Catalogue


I've chosen the card on the bottom right of Page 70:

Instead of a Halloween theme, I've changed it to Christmas.

I've started with a base of Soft Succulent cardstock. I've trimmed a piece of Evening Evergreen for the top layer and cut the same size piece of Tidings of Christmas DSP. Before adding it to the mat, I've cut a small triangle off the lower corner and slightly larger off the top opposite corner.

My tag is made with the Stockings Dies and Cherry Cobbler cardstock. Texture was added with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing folder. Next I've added a tab of Basic Black cardstock folded in half and stapled it in place. The tree is diecut with the Christmas Trees Dies from Evening Evergreen. The holly was stamped with Evening Evergreen ink and coloured with Stampin' Blends before being diecut with the same Christmas Tree dies. 

The greeting is from Whimsical Trees stamped in Evening Evergreen ink onto Soft Succulent cardstock.then diecut with the Tasteful Labels dies. 


This was possibly my least favourite DSP out of the pack but I feel it works well for this background as it is quite simple. I could have used two of any of the smaller trees but opted for one larger one as my tag was slimmer and it stayed in balance


What's your favourite bundle from the mini catalogue? We hope you'll post a card to our Facebook page using the link over on the right before next Sunday evening!

#CTC339 CASE Painted Christmas Suite

 

CASE the Painted Christmas Suite on pages 16-23 of the Mini Catalogue

I've gone with the card on the right beside the pocket, you'll find it on page 16.

I've started with a base card of Misty Moonlight and added a panel of Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP. I've cut a shape from Stitched So Sweetly Dies in Basic White and stamped a greeting from Whimsical Trees in Misty Moonlight ink. I've diecut two trees from Soft Succulent and one from Blushing Bride using the Christmas Trees Dies and attached to the greeting before adhering to the card. My crinkled seam binding ribbon has been tied in a bow in lieu of the tail in the original.


Such sweet DSP - but another that's hard to photograph because you can't tell there's foil hiding in that picture. Let's try in the sunshine - still tricky - you really need to see this in real life!!


We hope to see you play along with the crew this week. SImply post the photo of your card using the link over on the right (after you've been approved) before next Sunday evening.

Next on the hop we have our lovely Rebecca and her fabulous, cheery Christmas take:
