Good evening everyone and welcome back to CASEing the Catty, where every Sunday night the design team CASE’s (Copy and Share Everything) from a given section of the current catalogues. You can play along too, by creating your own masterpiece and loading your picture on our Facebook page right HERE. You have one week to get your entry in 🙂
We are up to CTC 162 – where we are CASEing the Sweet Soiree Section of the Occasions Catalogue, on pages 10-14.
It’s only a few pages of the catalogue, but it is overflowing with gorgeous projects ready to be recreated with your own spin on them! I chose to play around with the card on the right on Page 14 –
I have already been having a bit of fun with the Sunshine and Rainbows suite – and I knew I wanted to take it out and play again! I kept pretty close to the card in the Catalogue for the challenge, just changing and adding a few elements, and combining it with the Unicorn from the Magical Day Stamp Set – It’s like these sets were made for each other!
I started by spritzing yellow brusho on a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock because it holds the water so much better than Whisper White. Once that was dry I flicked some water drops all over and sprinkled with Gold Embossing powder and heat set, to create the Gold splatters. Did you know that you can simply use water for embossing powder splatters? I stamped the sentiment in versamark and also heat set with Gold Embossing powder.
I chose to cut my rainbow using the framelits and scraps of coloured cardstock. a tip for your rainbows is to nest them together and line them up from the back, then simply apply a few pieces of tear n tape adhesive to hold them together – no tombow glue to mess about with, and then you can pop the whole lot up on dimensionals like I have done.
The clouds were cut from our Myths and Magic Glimmer Paper Pack for a bit of added sparkle, and the Unicorn, from our Magical Day Set, was coloured with our Stampin Blends! The horn is also sparkled with gold glitter. Easy to do once you have applied a bit of Fine Tip Glue to the horn – just add Gold Glitter and let it dry!
I hope you like my CASE this week and have been having a chance to create yourself. Don’t forget to come back and play along after you have taken the tour and seen all the amazing projects on offer!
