Each week the Crew members will take inspiration from a section or theme of the current Stampin' Up Catalogues to create their projects. The acronym "CASE" stands for "Copy And Share Everything" or "Copy And Selectively Edit". :)
This week the CTC Crew are choosing another project from the Sale-A-Bration catty to CASE.
I was inspired by the projects on page 14, using the layout on the top left & the theme of balloons, which features in two of the projects:-
The colour palette comes from the "Cherry On Top" Designer Series Paper stack. I have punched five small balloons from the Balloon Builder punch & coated them with Crystal Effects, resulting in gorgeous, glossy balloons. My best tip for using Crystal Effects is be patient! Work out what you want to coat, sit it on a silicone mat, cover with Crystal Effects & then walk away!!!! Most importantly - don't touch it until the next day. You will end up with a beautiful, shiny finish. :)
The balloons are raised on dimensionals & sit on two white, layered banners. The bottom layer is embossed with the decorative dots embossing folder, which is a bit hard to see because I was trying so hard to capture the shine on the balloons....
I really loved the reverse colour of the sentiment on the original project, & have achieved that by using white embossing powder on the Watermelon Wonder cardstock with a sentiment from the SAB set, "Botanicals for You". (I ♥ that set!) The balloons are tied with silver metallic thread.
Here are the projects that inspired my design:-
