#CTC250 CASE a Layout from Page 46




CASE a card from page 46 this week:

Image may contain: text and food

For me, it was the card top left.  

I've mainly gone with the layout, using DSP. Onto a base layer of thick Whisper White. I've cut a piece of DSP from Dinoroar DSP and added fussy cut images from the same pack as needed to fill the area the leaves filled in the original. Such a fun pack for kidlet cards. In the end I made two - similar but with different colour ways. Seems too easy but a bit of change when you don't have little people to make for. 

The DSP has Whisper White Baker's Twine wrapped around and tied in a bow, with a greeting from Varied Vases stamped in Pretty Peacock ink.  The DSP panel has been raised with Stampin' Dimensionals.


Here they are separately: 


I still can't decide which I like best, but at the moment - equally:


Thanks again for stopping by. Time now to go and check out Rebecca's Christmas Cheer!

#CTC249 - Toile Tidings




CASEing anything from the Toile Tidings Suite on pages 6 - 11:

No photo description available.

I ended up going back to the card on page 6 - top right:


And to be fair - I haven't changed a lot. I switched to landscape orientation and used a base of thick Very Vanilla cardstock then added a piece of Toile Tidings DSP. With the Layering Circles dies I cut a Very Vanilla circle (rather than the darker colour in the original) and stamped the image from Greatest Part of Christmas (Hostess set) in Garden Green ink. Using the Botanical Tags Dies, I cut several of the leaf shape. Then I glued the leaves around the edge of the circle and mounted onto the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. I took my Whisper White Baker's Twine and a tissue, and pulled the twine across my ink pad using pressure and the tissue was to stop the ink covering my fingers. I repeated until I had the depth of colour I wanted and set it aside to dry. It was then tied into a bow and popped on with a glue dot. My bling is the gold Metallic Pearls.


Because yesterday was World Cardmaking Day, we were encouraged by our Stampin' Up! associates from the Home Office to take part in World Card SENDING week. We had to sign up and commit to sending a card to the person above us in the queue.  I think I will use this card to send to a lovely lady in France - her comment to me was: "I don't speak English, but I'm so happy to share the card kiss"! How cute is that?? I may have to google a little so she can understand something of what I shall write inside. 

I love how cards make connections - the creating, the receiving, the sharing - it is so easy to put aside a few of the mundane things we deal with from day to day and appreciate the love inside a handmade card.

Maybe you'll be inspired to made and send a card this week? If you wish to join the challenge, use the link over on the right and upload your photo before next Sunday evening.  Until then, continue on the hop by visiting the lovely Lauren:

#CTC248 - CASE Annual Catalogue using Holiday Catalogue Supplies




Choose any project from the Annual Catalogue and CASE it using supplies from the Holiday Catalogue:
No photo description available.

I've chosen the card on the bottom right of page 15:


Onto a base of Garden Green cardstock, I've added a mat of Crumb Cake. I've cut a 6" x 4" piece of Toile Tidiings DSP into 1" wide strips and screwed them up, then opened them and sponged each with Crumb Cake ink. They are then adhered onto the Crumb Cake mat. Using Daffodil Delight I've diecut stars from the Stitched Stars Dies and placed them where the CASEd card had used leaves. I opted to omit the ribbon as I had enough texture going on for what I wanted. 

The greeting is from the Hostess set "Greatest Part of Christmas" and inked in Garden Green ink with a strip of Daffodil Delight for the word Christmas. This was attached to a crumpled piece of vellum and all adhered over the top of the stars.


We hope you'll play along with the crew and post your photo onto our Facebook page using the link over on the right by next Sunday evening.  Time now to hop over and check out Shannon's super cute Snowmen:
