#CTC329 CASE Mini Catalogue Cover


CASE the Cover of the New Mini Catalogue

I used the image in the centre and rotated it 180 degrees for my layout inspiration.

Onto a base of Soft Suede cardstock, I've added a faux ribbon using a strip of Highland Heather cardstock mounted onto a strip of Basic White. The Hand-Penned DSP was used to diecut with a Tasteful Labels die, but only to half the width of the die, then the other half was cut from the far end of the DSP to give an elongated diecut. This was repeated with a shorter piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock for the next layer. Another piece of Hand-Penned DSP with another Tasteful Labels die, and the final layer was diecut from the same set after stamping the greeting from Handsomely Suited in Soft Suede ink onto Basic White cardstock.

The flowers, in Pale Papaya, leaves in Garden Green and bow in Highland Heather and Basic White were diecut using the Pierced Blooms Dies and roughly adhered to replicate the original.

I've finished by adding a knot around the bow with White Baker's Twine and a few of the tiny flowers from the scraps on my bench.

Do be sure to check out all the other ideas from the crew - amazing diversity in projects! We look forward to seeing your creation - be sure to add it to our Facebook page using the link over on the right. Next on the hop is the lovely Judy:

#CTC328 CASE Sketch on Page 33

CASE the Sketch on Page 33 by using this photo

Or use the sketch version:
I've looked at the photo and saw three objects on an embossed panel with a layered greeting and twine on top of a full front of DSP - which is what I've recreated.

I've chosen Expressions in Ink Specialty DSP for my full front panel (FYI, I couldn't help sneaking a Stitched Rectangle diecut for a future project behind the panel where it will never be missed!). My front panel is Basic White embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing folder. From Fresh Freesia cardstock I've diecut three butterflies with the Brilliant Wings Dies and attached the abdomen only so the wings could be lifted.

My greeting is from Blossoms in Bloom, inked with Gorgeous Grape and stamped onto Pale Papaya cardstock, with Fresh Freesia cardstock as my faux ribbon. A piece of Baker's twine has been added to the back of the greeting and adhered to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. This was all added a a Basic White card base.

The Specialty DSP is the hero of the card!

We can't wait to see your take of the sketch challenge this week. Add your project to our Facebook page using the link over to the right before next Sunday evening.

Tme to hop on to see what the rest of the crew have created! Next stop is Rebecca:

#CTC327 CASE the Holiday Section

Before I start - I have to credit the CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge on their Seventh Anniversary today!

What a great achievement and though I can't take credit for being with the crew that long, I enjoy taking part each week that I can, creating alongside a fantastic group of ladies.

This week #CTC327 has us CASE the Holiday Section - Pages 88-95

I've chosen the card in the middle of Page 95, but opted to switch it from a Christmas card to a Birthday card using some stamps and dies that haven't seen a lot of use lately,

I started by stamping a bird from Birds & Branches in Night of Navy ink onto Pool Party cardstock and die cutting it with the Birds & More Dies. I've also diecut a branch from Cinnamon Cider using the same dies. I've matted a panel of Basic White with Mango Melody cardstock and adhered my diecuts in place. The party hat is from Turtle Friends, stamped in Black Memento Ink and fussy cut then coloured with Stampin'  Blends (Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo).  

The greeting is also from Turtle Friends, stamped in Black Memento ink onto Mango Melody cardstock and fussy cut before adding it to the panel. I've finished with some of the pale green dots from Sequins for Everything and placed it on a base card of Soft Sea Foam with Stampin' Dimensionals.

A different angle to show the Dimensionals at work

We hope you can play along this week and add your photo to our Facebook page before next Sunday evening using the link over on the right.

Next up we have our friend Tina and her cute critter card:
