We are back for another CASEing the Catty Challenge where the design team inspire you with projects that we have used to spur our creativity! You may have arrived from Julia Quinn’s post or be starting right here – either way we are thrilled that you joined us!
To CASE means to Copy and Share Everything, so thats what we do! And you can too – just hop around to see what the design team has created, then hop off and create your very own CASE from the pages mentioned below and upload to our Facebook group using the link at the end of the post. It’s that simple!
I am thrilled to see so many of you participating in the challenge over on Facebook, and I love that the latest entries have been using different sets to CASE a layout! Well Done Everyone!
This week we are CASEing anything from the Occasions Catalogue Pages 14 – 19. I have to say – these pages hold lots of favourite sets for me, so it was quite difficult choosing what I wanted to use – but as I have an upcoming class using the Sending Love Suite, I decided to begin playing with that!
I knew I wanted to try and create an acetate card ( I think that’s what they might be called???) for this class – so I began playing around with card colours and papers. As sweet as it is – I really wanted to break up all that red and white in my card, so I introduced some crumb cake to tone it down a bit. I really like the combination of colours! I then used that little white card in the top left corner as inspiration for the base of my card – I just changed up the colours a little and substituted one envelope for the glassine sheet envelope (Like I said – I wanted to tone down that RED! Lol).
It’s a bit tricky to get a good picture with the acetate centre – but I really love how it turned out! I hope the girls at class enjoy this fancy card too!
For my second card I let the blue card in the pic above inspire my layout, but I really wanted to step away from the ‘Valentine’ theme to show people just how versatile this set can be…. I mean those cute envelopes should be enough, but just in case…. I thought this beautiful friend sentiment was perfect. I adore that font…if only I could write like that!
I stamped the sentiment ‘sent with love’ along the edge of the card with versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I ‘turned’ all the hearts on the DSP for contrast (warning – you have to be a bit gentle here or you can tear the hearts), and as I have been doing a lot lately – I framed the sentiment using the Stitched Shape framelits – I can’t get enough of those! Seriously!
Don’t forget to decorate the inside of your cards for that extra special touch!
I do hope you enjoyed my projects this week!
Make sure to hop on over to the very talented Judy May to see what she has created for you all this week!
And once you have finished hopping around – don’t forget to post a pic of your very own CASEd project in our Facebook group!
And ppppssssttttttt…..we love it when you leave us a little comment too!
Two fabulous cards, Mel. I’ve been wondering (& pinning ideas) for acetate cards, so you might be triggering my creativity !!!! The example in blue is just beautiful too.
Thanks Rachel. They are lots of fun!
Great cards Mel! Love the acetate window – hope you class love it! I think I’ll have to add it to the mix too this month 🙂 I love a fancy card! Kelly x
Thanks Kelly. I love a fancy card too 🙂
Love your acetate card!! I’ve been meaning to make one of these. I might have to case you!
Thanks Rebecca. You certainly can 🙂
Great cards, I like that you have not used so much red and white and the crumb cake makes it so striking with the acetate section.
Thanks Kathryn 🙂
Wow, your cards are both so beautiful. And yes, I’m inspired to have a go too! Thankyou for the awesome inspiration.
Thanks Julia 🙂
Fabulous cards, Mel. Funny how we were both inspired by that little card tucked into the corner! Love the stamping on the border with the blue card too.
Thanks Judy! I Know – but it really is the cutest card!
