CASE from the New Caddy

Here is my card for the day. I CASEd the layout from the catalog. You can see it on page 41 -- the Keep Christmas set. I plan on doing several of these CASEs to show how the catalogue is really an IDEAs book.

For the true thyme layer I stamped the floral BG with Artichoke craft ink, and embossed with clear. For the marigold layer I stamped the aida BG with summer sun craft ink, and embossed with clear. The naturals layer I rolled caramel ink on with the speckled wheel. For the chocolate layer I rolled chocolate ink with the rough texture wheel. The rest is obvious, I stamped the bee, flower, and leaves and then cut them out. I think just about everything is up on dimensionals.

I really like using the craft inks and clear embossing powder. It give the card such nice texture, and it matches perfectly. What more could a girl ask for?

Stamps: Serene Sunflower, Aida, Floral Inks: Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Summer Sun (craft ink too), Marigold Morning, True Thyme, Always Artichoke (craft) Paper: Chocolate Chip, Ivory Natural, Marigold Morning, True Thyme Extras: Speckled and Rough Texture Jumbo Wheels, Dimensionals, Ticket Corner Punch, Vintage Brads, Ribbon (LSS)

Don't forget about the Candy. You can see the post here.

Good gravy - great minds think alike! I'm signing up to be a demonstrator later this month and was literally thinking the exact same thing just a few minutes ago!

Fabulous job!

That is a wonderful idea. I originally had scanned the scrap pages, and cut them to fit into a 6x6 album. BTW, I love the card. I haven't gotten sunflowers yet. I finished my website (few tweaking yet to do). So hopefully i'll be able to stamp tomorrow and catch up on some challenges. Thanks for all your hugs and wishes!
