CTC Sunday Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog.  We’ve only got just over 1 week left of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue and the 2019 Occasions Catalogue so we’re CASEing a few of our favourite things before they’re gone for good.  This week we are CASEing our favourite Retiring Big Shot Project.  You may have arrived here from Elizabeth’s gorgeous creation, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you visit all the Design Team’s Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.


I’ve decided to CASE the sweet little pillow box in the above graphic.  Although it doesn’t use a lot of Big Shot elements in its creation.  The Retired Big Shot element is the Happy Birthday which has been created with the retiring Happy Birthday Thinlits.  This die makes such an impact to your projects, I will really miss it.


I’ve changed my CASE into a card rather than a Pillow Box.  I’ve used a gorgeous new 2019-2021 In Colour called Pretty Peacock.

There’s some beautiful retiring Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon Behind a die cut circle from Tranquil Textures DSP.  I’ve die cut the Happy Birthday in Sparkle Glimmer Paper then used a Sponge Dauber to add some Pretty Peacock and Balmy Blue colour to it.  I’ve layered another Happy Birthday die in Pretty Peacock behind, slightly offsetting it.  It’s been popped up on dimensions to give it even more depth.

The flowers and leaves are from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  I’ve used another new In Colour on the smaller flowers called Rocco Rose.

It’s difficult to capture the sparkle on the ribbon and sentiment.  It looks much sparklier in real life.

Next up tonight is  Rebecca’s beautiful project.  Just click on the “Next” button to hop right over.
