#CTC438 CASE All About Autumn


CASE the All About Autumn section of the Mini Catalogue - Pages 42-47:

I've chosen the card in the centre of the picture above.

I've used a panel of Joy of Christmas DSP and added a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock embossed with the Distressed Tile 3D Embossing Folder. Next I've stamped the greeting from Little Monkey with Early Espresso ink onto Basic White cardstock and diecut it using the Meadow Dies. The ribbon has been replaced with a piece of Linen Thread. The little monkeys are punched with the Little Monkey Builder Punch. The faces were stamped with Early Espresso ink onto Petal Pink cardstock and the face and ears punched using the same Litle Monkey Builder Punch.

A few of the (retired) Polished Dots have been used to finish.

I've rejoined the work force if you wondered where I've been. My voluntary position turned into an opportunity for part-time employment and I found it easier to step back while I found a bit of a balance. I'm not saying I'm there yet, but I'm trying. Crafting is my happy place and I had some new purchases calling me, so I hope my little monkeys make you smile.

Next up we're off to see what Monique has to share:

#CTC396 CASE a Watercolour Project

CASE a Watercolouring Project:

I've turned to Page 179 for my CASE of the hostess set on the top left:

I've stamped two images and a greeting from Sit Stay Relax using Soft Suede ink onto Basic White cardstock. These have been diecut using the Layering Circles Dies. The same dies were used with Cajun Craze cardstock and they were all adhered to a base of Petal Pink cardstock. Using my good old favourite (retired) Flowers for Every Season Gems to finish.

The original had another circle of colour but I like odd numbers so dropped it.

We hope to see you play along with the challenge this week and look forward to you sharing your project on our Facebook page, you can use the link over on the right if you need to.

Next up we are visiting Lauren:

#CTC394 CASE Favourite Stamp Set

CASE your Favourite Stamp Set:

The card at the centre top of Page 20 was my inspiration for this challenge:

Onto a base of Blackberry Bliss cardstock I've adhered panels of Design a Daydream DSP with the top one have a greeting from Go To Greetings stamped on it using Blackberry Bliss Ink. 

Next I've stamped the butterfly and daffodil images from Daffodil Daydream in Black Memento Ink onto Basic White cardstock and diecut with the Daffodil Dies fhen adhered in place.

I swapped from the square card used in the layout I CASEd to a traditional style.

Will you play along with the challenge this week? If you do, you can use the link over on the right to find us easily. We would love to see what your favourite stamp set to case will be.
