#CTC204 - Favourite Holiday Big Shot Project


The crew are back after a break to attend global Onstage events and here to inspire you with their favourite Holiday Big Shot project CASEs


I've combined two projects, the card on the right of this photo on page 8:


And the card in the middle of page 18:


Aren't those little elves delightful?? I've dulled down the snow effect due to living where we are supposed to get warm at Christmas, so the elves still have their snow covered Pole but the trees and the rolling green hills in the background are more suited to us.

I've used the layout of the top card with thick Whisper White as my base, and Pear Pizzazz my top layer. I've used Balmy Blue for the sky colour and placed that onto my base card.  The window was cut using the Layering Ovals. I've cut the oval a couple of times to form hills and sponged the edges with Garden Green. The top layer was embossed with the Pinewood Planks 3D TIEF. The Rooted in Nature trees were stamped in Garden Green and die cut with the Nature's Roots framelits then placed into position on the hills and behind the little elves.  My trolley is loaded up a little more than the original and all were easily die cut with the Santa's Signpost Framelits Dies from the Santa's Workshop Specialty DSP. I used the Bronze Stampin' Blend for the wood signs (stamped from Signs of Santa) and the greetings from the same set, were stamped on top in Memento Ink. Finished off with Whisper White Baker's Twine and a bow.


Thanks for stopping by. It was so great to catch up with a few of the crew last week when I was in Melbourne attending Onstage, and one of them was the lovely Fi - let's pop over and see what she has for us:

#CTC203 - Hostess Set - Both Catalogues


Choose either catalogue and the hostess section to create a card then add it to our Facebook page using the link on the right. You have an extra week as the crew take a break next week while many of us are attending an Onstage event.
I was drawn back to the annual catalogue and loved the look of embossing on the Wood Textures DSP at the top:


I've switched orientation and used thick Very Vanilla cardstock for my base card. I've had my white embossing powder for a while and I now think it is more Vanilla coloured, but it still works for me!  The lovely flowers from the hostess set "Very Vintage" are heat embossed. I loved the way they turned out and will definitely be using this idea again. I've used Very Vanilla baker's twine to wrap around the card, and added a bow. In lieu of the green cardstock, I've used Gorgeous Grape cardstock and ink, and another image from Very Vintage. The greeting choice is from Bubble Over, stamped in Gorgeous Grape onto Very Vanilla with a banner cut at the end. This was all popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

#CTC202 - Favourite Holiday Tags


So many choices this week as we CASE our favourite holiday tag.


With all that choice, I've ended up on the back cover and the tag on the top right:


I've shifted it up a notch to a Christmas card, using a base of thick Whisper White. I've die cut some Pretty Pine thinlits pine tree leaves in Old Olive as my feature.  The tag part is my top layer of whisper white, and the background I've opted for is stamped with the doily from the hostess set "Very Vintage".  Each time it has been stamped off once, to lighten the image  I've used Gold Glimmer paper for my banner instead of the red above, snipped with the Banner Triple punch at each end. I've then staggered the pine die cuts in a kind of wreath pattern and added a pine cone die cut in Soft Suede.  I've then added the greeting (from "Making Christmas Bright") which was stamped in Old Olive, and the word 'Bright' has been gold heat embossed. It was cut using a circle shape from Stitched Shapes Framelits. I've then added another two pine cone diecuts and finished off with Metallic Pearls


Thanks for stopping by. It would be great if you were to play along, create your CASE of your favourite holiday tag, and add it to our Facebook page using the link on the right.  Time to pop over and see Rebecca's creation, which was one of the tags I was considering, but love what she's done with it...
