Case card for CCCB

At the time that this post publishes all being well I shall be disembarking from the train at Harrogate and wending my way to my Hels Sheridan Melt Pot workshop. I’m ashamed to say the pot has been in my stash for about nine months, possibly longer, and is still in its packaging. I know, shocking! I’m hoping today will give me the confidence to start using it.

Today I have a card to show you and I will be sharing this over at City Crafter Challenge Blog where the lovely ladies are about to celebrate their 4th birthday.


You definitely need to buzz over and take a look at all the lovely samples the Design Team are sharing and there are also loads of opportunities to win some fabulous prizes too. The challenge this week is to case one of the projects. I’ve chosen to case project number 3.


I’ve used a similar layout, included a post card image and also one with a pretty dove. Both images are from The Graphics Fairy and have been layered up with coordinating pink card, music manuscript and some paper from my scrap box. Some of the edges have been distressed and inked.


There’s a combination of my own vintage shabby roses (which look a bit peachy in the photograph but are actually pink) and sweetheart blossoms.


I’ve used plenty of lace, partly by design and partly to cover up a little mishap! The bow is made with some gorgeous sparkly ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.



City Crafter Challenge Blog was one of the very first challenge blogs I came across when I started blogging just under two years ago and I can still remember my first entry. I’ve played along virtually every week since and have been lucky enough to be a Guest Designer, in the Spotlight and, just before Christmas, to have a month long spot. I’ve also been lucky enough to win some great prizes and made some lovely friends along the way. . So big CONGRATULATIONS to CCCB, thanks for the inspiration and the challenges, and here’s to many more years of fun.

Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. Lovely, and perfect for spring!
    Enjoy your class. I looked up Hels’s blog, and I must say she is amazing! I’ve never invested in a melt art pot, but some of the projects I’ve seen are pretty cool.

    • Oh Roberta I had such a good time and I really want to utilise my Melt Pot to the max now!! If you get the chance to do a workshop I would recommend it and they you will know whether you feel you want to invest.

  2. Lots of lovely layering and I think I can see some distressing as well. Great colour coordination and, with the gorgeous flowers, the ribbon and lace make fabulous finishing touches.

    I hope you had a great time today and learnt a lot.

    • Thank you. The workshop was brilliant, all I have to do now is unwrap my Melt Pot – wish you were nearer to do this with me!!!xx

    • Thanks Diane – I’m never really sure what “case” is exactly but somehow I seem to be able to do what’s needed!!!!

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
