CTC257 – Kids & Babies

It’s only 24 more sleeps to go!!! I’m so excited, I love Christmas!! I’ve had a week off to do some Christmas shopping, crafting and baking!! Sadly I’m not having any more time off and am working over Christmas so I need to get stuff done now.

We are taking a break from Christmas cards and are casing the Kids & Babies section, pages 98-105 of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue.

There are lots of cute cards to choose from!. I’ve decided to case one of the cards on page 101 on the top right of the image

I love the look of the vellum Stitched Lace die so I decided to do the same. I used Rococo Rose cardstock for the background. The scalloped edge is die cut from the Seasonal Layers dies.

One of my craft ladies has been unwell, so I will be sending this card to her. I used the Healing Hugs stamp set with the flower fussy cut. You can’t see it properly but there is the large sentiment shape from the Roses Die in Seaside Spray. The small sentiment is also cut from the same dies. I added a twist of Seaside Spray metallic ribbon for a bit more texture. I did add Stella to the flower but it doesn’t photograph well.

Next up is my lovely friend, Julia.

We would love to see your creation casing this section, so please share it over on at our Facebook group.

Happy Stamping

CTC233 – Casing a Layout

Oh it’s a wonderful, drizzly rainy day today! A rainy day is the perfect craft day. Who am I kidding, any day is a perfect craft day!

We are trying a few different challenges at CTC and this week we are casing layouts on page 36. There are 8 different layouts on this page and you can case any one of them.

I decided to case the layout on the right with the three layers of paper.

I just received the Stitched Lace die and wanted to use it straight away!! I cut out three pieces in Pretty Peacock, Pool Party and Coastal Cabana. I used my new Take Your Pick Die Brush tip to get the little pieces stuck in the die out. I was really impressed at how well it worked. I still had to poke out a few pieces but much better than my old tool.

The Detailed Bands dies also includes a couple of great shapes, perfect for sentiments. I cut one out in Pretty Peacock and embossed the sentiment from the Band Together in white.

I can’t wait to play further with these dies!

Next up is fellow kitty lover, Peta!

We would love to see which layout you case from this page. Make sure you share your creations with us on our Facebook group.
