CTC283 – Case the Colours of the Trimming the Town DSP


Hi everyone, I hope you’re all keeping well. Can you believe it is the end of August already?? Where has this year gone! It also happens to be my sisters birthday – Happy Birthday Tegan xx

Tonight’s Caseing the Catty theme is the colours in the Trimming the Town DSP.

Although I do have this DSP, I decided not to use it and instead play with a stamp set that while isn’t new – it’s new to me! The stamp set is called Snow Front and is another of our scene builder sets. I have another of these scene builder sets called Water Front and I love it, definitely one of my most versatile and most loved. You can see some of the things I have made with that one here.

Snow Front Stamp Set

I’m sharing two cards tonight because I couldn’t decide which one to feature. The way I roll with these kind of scene builder sets is to just play and see what happens. So I got out the inks in the colours we were using, and some pre-cut banner pieces (I did have lots of shapes, but for both the cards tonight they both happened to use the Stitched nested label dies).

Once I had a couple of scenes I was happy with I turned them into cards. The Poppy Parade card uses a panel embossed with the 3D Scripty folder, where as the Misty Moonlight card uses the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. The ribbon is the In-Colour ribbon, and the poppy parade sprigs are cut with the Poinsettia dies. I am slightly obsessed with this little sprig die and it’s being added to everything lately!

I didn’t want to make them specifically christmas cards, so I just kept the sentiments quite generic .

I hope you have enjoyed these cards, do you like the scene builder stamp sets? I love them so I am certain I will be sharing more as the months go on.

If you would like to join in the challenge this week, just head to our facebook page and upload a pic.

  1. Wow, these are fabulous! I love the little sprig detail too – it really takes any creation to a whole new level. Gorgeous use of the colours. I must use my set a bit more – I’m inspired after seeing your gorgeous cards!


  2. I love the idea of just playing with these sets and seeing what comes of it – I find the sets a little intimidating as I am not a great artist. Your two scenes are beautiful and you’ve given them fabulous bases to sit on as well. I really like the blue wood grain embossed one in particular. Looking forward to seeing more such creations from you! 🙂 Siobhan.
