CTC50 – Gift Tags

I haven’t had much opportunity this week to spend time in my craft room, so I was excited to get a chance to have a play for this week’s CASEing the Catty challenge this week, which is gift tags. There are so many stunning tags in the 2015 Holiday catalogue, that it was a little hard to choose!!

I decided to case the tags on the tree on page 16 which use the Peaceful Pines stamp set and the Perfect Pines framelits as I haven’t had a chance to use this set yet.


I made my bases first using the Scalloped tag topper, the Ornate tag topper and the Banner triple punches. You can certainly whip these up quickly!! I did 3 on whisper white and 3 on using the Kraft cardstock. Then onto choosing which tags to make!!

To create the watercolour splats, I used the splodges from the Work of Art stamp set. I didn’t want to make a big mess and this was a lot quicker!! I did stamp off the ink on one of the tags to make the colour look a bit lighter.

These were fun to make and I really enjoyed playing with the layering of the stamps and framelits.

To continue on the hop and to see what other stunning tags the team has made, visit my lovely friend, Jessica at The Paper Caper.

CTC 49 – There’s no place like home at Christmas

At CASEing the Catty this week, we are caseing the Home for Christmas section of the catalogue from pages 8-21.


There are so many lovely stamp sets in the section, it was hard to choose which ones to use. I decided to use 2 sets which I haven’t inked up yet.

For my first card, I was inspired by the wreath on page 21. I love the new square pillow box thinlits but I wanted to do it as a card.

I just love the Wonderful Wreath framelits and I’m so glad that another co-ordinating stamp set is in this catalogue. Peaceful Wreath is a lovely set. It’s also the first time I’ve used the Woodland embossing folder. Isn’t it just devine! I think it looks amazing.

I coloured my wreath using a combination of markers and blender pens. I then added a few dots of the Cherry Cobbler dazzling details for a bit of sparkle. Once I was ready to assemble, I went with the gold glitter ribbon instead of the burlap. You can never have too much glitter.

Here’s a close up of the middle. I also did a spot of gold embossing on the bow.

For my second card, I was inspired by the card on page 20 using the Dove of Peace stamp set.


I wanted to try doing some splats on the background rather than embossing like the original. I think I’ve ended up with splodges but I’m happy with the result!! I used my aqua painter and Delightful Dijon as it was close to gold.

I seem to be doing a lot of fussy cutting lately even though it’s not my favourite thing to do. Some stamps just ask to be cut out and this is one of them!! Doesn’t the Dove just look lovely?

GDP003 – A baby is always Big News


At the Global Design Project this week, the challenge is a baby theme. I love the large sentiment on the Big News stamp set, so I decided to base my card around that.

I then choose Mint Macaron and Hello Honey for my colours. I don’t have any of the Baby DSP from this catalogue (I’m trying to be sensible!!) but then I realised that I only have the neutrals DSP stack which doesn’t quite go with my colour theme. But I DO have the Color Me Irresistible Specialty DSP, so I decided to colour the dotty one with my sponge dauber and Mint Macaron.

Once I stamped the image from the Big News stamp set, I coloured the words in with the Hello Honey marker as I wanted them to stand out.

I then stamped a duckie from the Something for Baby stamp set and cut it out with the matching framelits, Baby’s First. I LOVE matching framelits!!


Now I just need to find someone having a baby to give this card too!! I wonder who it will be!!

Happy Stamping

CTC48 – Lovely Gorgeous Holiday DSP

This week at CASE-ing the Catty, we are being inspired by the lovely, gorgeous Holiday Designer Series Paper in the Holiday Catalogue.

There is so much lovely designer series paper in this catalogue. And I have to say that I’m having trouble cutting up the Home for Christmas DSP!! I usually have no problems cutting up DSP but this one is just so nice!!

CTC 48

I was inspired by the cards on page 8 of the catalogue and I decided to CASE them fairly closely. Why re-invent the wheel when they look gorgeous anyway!!

CTC48 - catty image

I cased 3 of the projects on this picture. I used the Home for Christmas DSP and the matching Cozy Christmas stamp set.

I think the little reindeer on the DSP are very cute so I cut out 2 (one for the inside). I used my On Film framelits to create the frame which I should do more often as it looks great!!

ctc48 - Bec c

And how cute is that little reindeer on the inside. It’s a great way to use the deer which are on the side of the DSP.

ctc48 - bec d

For my second card, I decided to turn the gift bag into a card. I don’t have the pom pom trim so I decided to put a Stripes satin ribbon bow at the top.

ctc48 - Bec a

For my final card, I went with the bow card. I love my bow builder punch so any opportunity to use it!! And I’m loving square cards as well!!

I hope you have enjoyed my cards for this week and are inspired to actually use all that lovely, gorgeous designer series paper!!!

GPD002 – Sketch time

I’m trying to join in each week with the Global Design Project challenges. So far I’m on a roll, two weeks in a row!! Yay, me!! Lol

This week, the challenge is to use the sketch provided by the amazing Teneale Williams.


I started off by looking at my stamps to see if I had an image that would suit the large circle. I thought the flower in the Crazy about You stamp set had some potential so I decided to give it a go. I then flipped through the Pretty Petals DSP stack and selected this lovely Mint Macaron floral to be my background. I then used the My Creak Ink colour selector to give me a colour combo. I started off with Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron and I went with adding Pink Pirouette and Gold Glimmer Paper. It actually suggested So Saffron but I figured gold was better!!

gdp002 a

I just love the Striped Satin ribbon in the Holiday catalogue and thought it would accent the vanilla in the dsp. I then added a strip of Tip Top Taupe dotted lace ribbon for some more texture. I stamped the flower 4 times and punched out the largest one then hand cut the other three. I then layered them up with some dimensionals for a bit of height.

I then had a brain storming session with my other stamping bestie, Emma at Vintage Graffiti, who suggested that I stamp the “For onto a layered banner. Doesn’t it look great!! Thank you, Emma!!

I cut the “You” out of Gold glimmer paper using the new Precision Plate and it was so easy to get out of the die. Actually it just fell out!!

Here’s a close up of the detail.

I even put a bit of gold metallic thread behind the flower, but it’s a bit hard to see in the photo. It looks lovely in real life.

I hope you have enjoyed my card!! Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

So onto my projects!! I have to admit I was a little stumped on what to make as there are so many lovely products in this catalogue. I simply couldn’t decide which stamp set to use. I decided to try a sketch challenge and found one at Sweet Sunday Sketch that I liked.


You know how sometimes it’s really hard to cut up Designer Series Paper? Well, I’ve been having a bit of trouble cutting into the Home for Christmas DSP! So I’ve bitten the bullet and done it! Using the colour’s of the DSP, I layered up my card in Real Red, Pool Party and Delightful Dijon.

I used the Cozy Christmas stamp set and inked up the stamp using markers. Doesn’t it look fab!!

esad hop 2

I also had to create a matching envelope using the Real Red envelope paper. Did you know that you can get 20 sheets for only $10.50. That’s a lot of cute envelopes!!

I just love the Snowflake as well especially with an Iced Rhinestone on it!!

I also liked the slightly larger Season stamp in the set so I made the same card using a different piece of the Home for Christmas DSP. Oh, and isn’t the Stripes Satin ribbon to die for? I wasn’t a fan to start with but it is very luxurious looking. I can see I’m going to use it a lot.

CTC47 – Let’s Kit Together

Have you seen all the lovely kits at the start of the 2015 Holiday Catalogue? It’s hard to choose which one is the best!! I have got the Tag kit but I’m keeping it to use at an upcoming class, so I was a little stumped as to what to make this week for the CASEing the Catty Challenge.

I decided to do a version of the Shaker Cards featured on page 4.


This kit has includes die cut card fronts, envelopes, printed foil card bases, window sheets, gold foil starts, word stickers (in 3 languages), Christmas tree and circle stickers, baker’s twine, star sequins, red, green and gold sequins, dimensional adhesive strips, chunky clear glitter and dimensionals. Wow, that’s a lot!! You can also get the matching stamp set – To You & Yours too, and the coordinating ink pads, Cucumber Crush, Crushed Curry and Memento Black.

I decided to use a note card and the only colour I could find in the cupboard was Crumb Cake. I then went with a piece of Typeset DSP to go underneath the cut out. I used the Perfect Pines and the Delicate Ornaments framelits to cut the inserts and then put a piece of window sheet over the hole. I then added dimensionals all around the inside of the cut out and added lots of confetti!! I cut out some garden green hearts using the Confetti Heart punch (as I don’t have the Confetti Star punch) and added lots of sequins from the Metalics sequin assortment.

I then carefully attached it to the base piece and added the word from the Wonderful Wreath framelits. I cut it out using the new precision plate, which worked like a dream, and the new Red foil sheets. I’m pretty happy with how they turned out!!
