I am back hoping along with the Casing The Catty Crew, and this time we are looking at the project layouts featured on page 22 of the Holiday catalogue. Welcome, if you are joining me here or if you have hopped over from Judy. There are some really cool ideas to help inspire your next projects.
I could have gone with any one of these idea, but November is traditionally “Tag” month for me. I feature creative ideas for classes and many of my projects this month, so I really had to go with the cute little Elfie. Here I used the tag with the elf to inspire me to make this card….
Here I replicated the layout and repeated it across the card. Using some Crumb Cake cardstock, I stamped the elf in Memento Black ink and coloured him using Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Blends.
To add some fun, I used some of the cool Snowfall Accent Puff Paint… OMGosh… how much fun is this stuff! You can use it for many purposes, here I used it to add fluffy fake fur look to Elfies hat! It can be a little tricky to use until you get the hang of it. But so much fun, I really don’t care too much if I pop on a little too much!!
I layered the Elf images on some Designer paper, I adhere the two outter Elves flat to the Cherry Cobbler card base, the middle one is up on dimensionals. The middle Elf also has the sentiment stamped on some Whisper White cardstock and layered over the original placement, to help add dimension.
I finished off with a few little embellishments, which I think makes all the difference to a card…. transforming it from a nice card, to one with some “wow” about it. Here I threaded some White Bakers Twine through a gold Jingle Bell from the Wrapped in Plaid Suite and tied a large bow. I adhered it to the corner of the middle elf with a glue dot (love those things!). Then I added a couple of gold Metallic Pearls to the raised sentiment to echo the gold. I think it finishes off my card just nicely.
Next up in the hop is Julia Quinn.
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, 17 November.
Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
