CTC#195 Festive Farmhouse Inspiration

Welcome back for the second week CASEing projects from the Holiday Catalogue. There's a lot to see in those pages. I have a few projects for you this week which allow any DSP to be the star of the show. Of course I'm using Frosted Floral again because it's my fave. But I've also added in some easy elements with the cute wooden word embellishments from the Farmhouse suite.
Christmas cards need to be simple in my world. 
This one has a few layers to it for interest but it's not too fussy.
I've CASEd the card in the middle on the bottom of the inspiration picture on page 12.

You probably can't see it terribly well but I've painted the word using some of the returning Shimmer Paint- champagne colour here, just added on with a sponge dauber. (so glad to see that back in stock). I've also sponged Tranquil Tide , and some shimmer paint on the teeny tiny Christmas tree which also comes in that embellsihment set.

For the second version I heat embossed copper powder in the word. You need tweezers to be safe with this one., But it's very easy

I did also try a wedding card using the diecut word from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, and a sentiment from Better together.  In the end I think it's a bit busy but I've included it in the photo for you. Might have to rework that one.

Next on the hop this week is Bec, you'll love her project

and before me this week is Judy

The New Catalogue is available now. If you'd like a hard copy please get in touch, I'd love to get one to you. But here's a cute little snippet of some of the treasures inside the 2018 Holiday Catalogue

Don't forget we love to see what you create using the same inspiration pictures. Upload a picture of your project to our Facebook page.

I hope you have a creative week and remember,

 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz
