This weeks case is about the card design layouts on Page 46 of the Holiday Catalogue. The Casing The Catty crew have lots of inspiration for you using these few layouts. Welcome if you are joining me here, or have hopped over from Shannon.
This week, I have focussed on the layout in the bottom left of the image. Here it features a Very Vanilla card base with Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake.
I have two cards for you this week… sadly I have had two people loose their much loved fur-babies this week. It’s bad enough when you have one of these events but to have two…
This first card, is for my parents. They lost their much loved Jack Russell, Zena, this week. Zena has been in our family for more than 15 years, joining us as pup. She lived to be more than 100 in dog years and lived a long happy and loving life with my parents. She was a little shadow for my Mum. following her around the house, nails clicking on the tiles behind Mum where ever she went.
I have featured the same colours, but rearranged them to use in different areas of the card, which gives the card a different look altogether. I have used the Happy Tails stamp set, and coordinating dog punch.
I layered some burlap ribbon beneath the Stitched Labels element which I stamped in Mint Macaron for some background interest. I featured the dog house stamp, fussy cut, beneath the sentiment layer and topped off with main dog stamp. I stamped him Soft Suede Ink and coloured him using Crumb Cake Blends.
The second card is for one of my class ladies. She is an older lady and this week lost her much loved and best friend Oscar. He was a white fluffy Maltese Terrior and always barked loudly on approached to her front door, announcing your arrival before reaching for the door bell! He was her much loved companion, so I know he’ll be terribly missed.
For this card, I went a little different with the layout. Over a Gray Granite card base, I layered a piece of Gray Granite cardstock. First, I punched my Stitched Label shape and set that aside. I embossed the remaining piece with the Corrugated Embossing Folder and adhere this in place on my card base.
I looped the ribbon over the top of the embossed layer and adhered with Tear n Tape. I stamped the Label element in Gray Granite ink with elements from the Happy Tail stamp set. Adhering this over the top with Dimensionals.
I finished off the card with one of the best sentiments ever made for those who love fur-babies like children… this one is also from the Happy Tails stamp set and I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler ink. I framed the sentiment with some leaves from the Leaf Punch and Soft Seafoam cardstock.
Little Bella, is from the Bella and Friends stamp set, which has retired. But it was just perfect resemblance to Oscar, so I had to use it.
Next up in the hop is the clever Lauren Meiklejohn.
After you’ve enjoyed the awesome hop with the team, I’m looking forward to seeing your CASE over in our challenge group. Be sure to load up your creation by 6pm next Sunday night, October 19th.
Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
