#CTC242 CASE Woven Threads DSP




We can choose all or any of the colours of the Woven Threads DSP: Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Sahara Sand, Seaside Spray, Terracotta Tile and Whisper White:

No photo description available.

I've chosen to use them to add colour to my image. They are all there, but some a little harder to find than others. I've used a base of Purple Posy. My mat of Sahara Sand has been embossed with the Layered Leaves 3D folder and has a piece of linen thread wrapped around. 

Bit of a story with my image, initially I stamped the milk can from Country Home in Terracotta Tile, masked it and stamped the flora image with Pretty Peacock, coloured it in and was going to sponge around it - however, I wasn't happy with my sponging effort. Fast forward and the next effort saw me sponging the background first, and adding my (now) fussy cut image - not something I'd recommend with this image but I am a lot happier. I've torn the top of the white mat on an angle, sponging the edges as well. A linen bow to finish with a swipe of Wink of Stella on the arrangement.


Thanks for stopping by. Please continue over to Monique's lovely project:

#CTC241 CASE a Layout on Page 101




CASE any of these layouts on page 101:


For me, I was drawn to the Woodgrain background card on the bottom left.

I've used a base card of Smokey Slate, which has had the small image from  Daisy Lane stamped in Blueberry Bushel randomly. From Noble Peacock Specialty DSP (this is just stunning!! but hard to show how much in a photograph), I've diecut several of the Stitched Nested Labels and with some assistance from Press n Seal, I've lined them all up and attached to a piece of Smokey Slate with multipurpose liquid glue so I could still wiggle it a little into place as needed. When I was happy with the placement I trimmed the edges and matted this onto a piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock and then onto the base using Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I've used a larger sized Stitched Nested Labels die and cut one from Whisper White and one from vellum, recutting the white piece with the same die to give a straight edge at the top and leaving the same stitching. The greeting added is from Stitched All Round and again uses Blueberry Bushel ink. I've trimmed the vellum and turned so the straight edge lined up with the straight edge of my white piece, and adhered it to the back.  

The piece of crinkled seam binding ribbon gave me the idea for some texture in my leaves. I've punched them with the Leaf punch from Garden Green cardstock. I then spritzed them with water and squished them into a ball. They were then carefully unfolded and left to dry. The cardstock soaks up the water and makes them a bit thicker but when dry very stiff and hold their shape. 

My daisy is the star of the show and the Baker's Twine ribbon finishes the CASE.



I've used the Medium Daisy punch with the matching image from Daisy Lane. I have sponged colour to the centre instead of the whole image and repeated this four times. If you look closely you will see a little notch at the end of each petal, I've just popped the very tip of the petal back into the punch, punched then repeated for every petal. The edges were sponged gently at the edges as well. For the gardeners among you, this reminded me very much of an Osteospermum and I seem to recalling one that was blue. 



This is a different angle to highlight the stunning Noble Peacock Specialty DSP


The Daisy Lane bundle is a winner in my book!  Thanks for stopping by, and please continue on to see what the rest of the crew have been up to, starting with Rebecca who just might have been called to  the same card to CASE...

#CTC240 Everyday Occasions




Head to the catalogue and choose anything to CASE from Page 12 through 71

No photo description available.

I found this butterfly card on page 34:


I cut 3 strips of Whisper White cardstock 1 1/2" wide and punched one end with the Everyday Label punch. I took the tiny solid butterfly image from Butterfly Gala and using Highland Heather ink I stamped 3 times before reinking the image - for those of you waiting to get your hands on Purple Posy - the last time is a very close match. 

These panels were then embossed using the Country Floral 3D folder and attached to my base card of Thick Whisper White using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I've cut Pretty Peacock butterflies with the Butterfly. Beauty dies and added them along with a greeting from Varied Vases.
