CTC #211: All My Love

Hi!


Hello again, and welcome to the new week's CASEing The Catty Blog Hop! This week the blog before mine is Peta's. It really doesn't matter where you start - just keep on going until you get back to where you started. When you're done, why not pop on over to the Facebook group to enter a card?


This week I picked a card from page 7. It can be a bit tricky to think about how to CASE a card when you don't have any of the same products. Actually, I probably shouldn't say tricky, as it's not really, it just takes a little more thought.


The card I CASEd is quite soft with its colours, but I went in the other direction and went bold so that I could play with the new Happiness Blooms DSP.

You can see that my card is essentially the same, I've just used what I have in my stash. The flowers were all fussy cut from the DSP as I don't yet own the Bloom By Bloom stamp set.

I also had to substitute for the Stitched Labels die, as I don't have the die used on the card, which is from the Rose Trellis set. It just goes to show that a CASE can be more than a direct copy.

I'm sorry I don't have my usual picture of the inside today - I'd mailed the card before I realised that the photo I'd taken was too blurry to be used. You'll just have to imagine that I stamped the tall, thin sentiment from Picture Perfect Birthday and adhered a few of the smaller flowers in a cluster beside it. Can you picture it? I hope so!

Now you're off to see the lovely Rebecca's card for the All My Love challenge.


Don't forget to check out our Facebook group when you're done!


Bye for now,

Tina

  3. Great example of what you can do with the papers and inks you have on hand. It's always great to see a different colour and products used for the card, really opens your mind to new possibilities.

  5. Oh Tina - you are marvellous! I don't have the Bloom by Bloom stamp set (and I don't think it will make it to the top of my list) but I do have the DSP on the way. As much as I love DSP, I would have never though to fussy cut the DSP and use it like that! Kelly x

  7. Love your bright bold take on a soft card- great card Tina. Using what you have is what we are all about. The happiness blooms paper just says "Happy" doesn't it?
