CASE-ing The Catty Challenge #94 – Candy Cane Lane
Hello Hello! Welcome to September, What a great month this is .. lovely spring weather, the month of father’s day, and also …. launch of the new 2016 Holiday Catalogue!!! YAY! So many fantastic products and wonderful project ideas, we are going to have so much fun CASE-ing this catalogue. Let the goods times begin with Candy Cane Lane. This week we are taking inspiration from pages 4 – 7 of the Stampin’ Up! 2016 Holiday Catalogue.
Do you see that white card standing on the chopping board? That little beauty is the one I CASEd this week. I must admit, the idea of traditional red, green & gold Christmas is not really my cup of tea. Possibly because we generally associate those colours with jumpers, beanies and gloves, fireplaces and snow. NONE of which can be found in Queensland at Christmas time. That’s probably the only little thing I was slightly disappointed with in this catalogue. I was really hoping for bright Christmas DSP. Not to worry though, I found a way to make my own bright Christmas card.
I even added tinsel! Well, it’s the new super pretty silver glitter ribbon pulled apart. Made a mess on my craft table just like real tinsel. The background is also from the Holiday Catalogue; Fancy Frost Specialty DSP. I used my sponge roller and gave a little more pressure to fill in the indents for a more all-over colour. You can’t really tell by the photo but there is Stella on the sentiment, which gives the card a bit of wow & sparkle. Here are the supplies I’ve used:
Over the next few weeks and leading up to Christmas you will probably see a lot more non-traditional Christmas projects from me, especially when I get my hands on the Day At The Beach stamp set! (I hope those project ideas work out as well as they do in my head!)
I’d also like to give a big shout-out & thank you to Lauren & Cathy who joined the challenges for August, great work Ladies!!
