CTC153 - Case a Holiday Catalogue Tag

Woohoo it's Sunday and I am super excited as this is the week of OnStage! OnStage is a conference where demonstrators go to catch up with each other, see and play with all the new products prior to them being released to the general public and come home with some fabulous, free new products, oh and did I mention we get to pre-purchase some of the new products too!!

Of course, I'm also excited to be CASEing and blog hopping with the rest of the crew from the current Holiday Catalogue. This week the brief is to CASE (Copy & Selectively Edit) a tag.

I decided that I was going to find a tag and use it for inspiration to make a card. See the tag on the red present? That angled line really caught my eye and therefore became my jumping off point for the design of my card.

That is where the similarities cease!

My card uses the solid leaf from the Colourful Seasons stamp set and I have used it with the "ghosting" technique. You simply first stamp the image in Craft ink and then once dry (don't forget Craft takes a little while longer) you stamp over top of it with your coloured image slightly offset.
We completed this card at our Cuppa & Card Class this week and the results were beautiful and of course everyone's was a little bit different, some ladies even did a third layer and stamped the stamp image with the outline and veins.

Some inside love!

We'd really love it if you joined in on the challenge, click the image below to be taken to our Facebook page.

It's now time for you to see what the talented Kelly Kent has in store for you. Spoiler alert! My favourite Christmas colour combo this year! Just click the image below to hop on over.

Bye for now!
Cheers Megan xx
