#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!

#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:

#CTC326 CASE a Layout and Step It Up



This week we are CASEing a Layout and Stepping It Up:

The card on the left of Page 56 was my choice:


The basic card is a base of Granny Apple Green cardstock. I've added a Basic White shape using the Tasteful Labels Dies. Attached to this was a piece of Expressions in Ink Specialty DSP.

A turtle shape was stamped in Black Memento ink onto Basic White cardstock and a shell of Granny Apple Green was added. This was punched out with the Turtle Punch. I inked the bird in Pale Papaya and placed the turtle where I wanted it to end then removed it to stamp the bird in place before adhering the turle. The greeting from Turtle Friends was stamped in Granny Apple Green onto Pale Papaya cardstock and attached to the card with a Baker's Twine bow to finish.


To step it up, I've added another layer of Granny Apple Green cardstock to the base after embossing it with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I've also embossed the Tasted Labels diecut after it has been stamped with the bird using Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, matted the greeting with Whisper White, switched out the Baker's Twine bow for a White Crinkled Seam Binding double bow and added some Sequins for Everything


Subtle differences creating texture:




And the two cards side by side:


We look forward to seeing what you choose to Step It Up. Add your project to our Facebook page using the link over on the right before next Sunday evening.
