Case challenge 14 – two tone diecutting

Week 14 on the CASE challenge is a gorgeous two tone design by Darlene McCallum, more info here. Her lovely card was great for a birthday, but I'm in a more festive mood right now. This month saw the launch of the brand new Snowflake Showcase, a simply stunning set of stamps and thinlits that I just knew would be perfect for this challenge. I started with a Night of Navy base, with a layer of Silver foil on top.  I then cut another layer of Night of Navy, and sliced it diagonally along the top.  These three layers [...]

CASE challenge 11 – magic slider

Week 11 is yet another fancy fold card, and it's a golden oldie!  I remember making magic slider cards for my second ever Convention back in 2010.  It's been great to dust off this fancy fold and put a fresh look on it.  I was delighted when Becki chose Becky aka Scrappy Stamper (read more here) as our CASE inspiration this week.
