CTC09 – Thanks!!!

Thanks

Can you believe that we are more than halfway through casing the catalogue!! We are up to the Thanks section this week. There are so many great cards and projects to case in this section. It was hard to decide which one to make to share this week!!

I went with an old favourite stamp set (well, it’s not that old!!), the Six Sided sampler. I am a sucker for stamps which have matching punches or framelits. Anything to avoid cutting out myself!!!

The project that I am casing is from page 145 of the AU/NZ catalogue.

page 145

I wanted to do different colours to the catalogue so I got out my trusty Colour Coach to pick a combo. I wanted to use Tangelo Twist, a new in-colour which I haven’t used very much yet.

I ended up going with Tangelo Twist, Island Indigo and Sahara Sand.

To do the twine, I just cut a long piece and scrunched it up in my hand and stuck it on the card with some dimensionals. Easy Peasy!!!!

And for the bling, I used some champagne Glimmer paper. Looks so sparkly!!

CTC08 – You are so amazing!!

Card Giving

I just love this quote on one of the stamps in the Lovely Romance set!! I have met lots of amazingly talented women in my Stampin’ Up! journey and I think this card might be off to one of them!!

I have based my project for this week’s Caseing the Catty challenge on the card on page 115.

page  115

I love the Friends Who Know stamp set but I don’t have it yet so I thought I would use the Lovely Romance set which is on the same page.

If you follow my blog, you would know that I like Blendabilities (well, just a little bit, lol!!). I thought I would try using them over the white embossing powder. Well, it works a treat!! I also tried it using the markers and do a comparison for you, but it didn’t turn out at all. There is barely any colour showing on the white embossing powder. But the blendabilities did a great job as you can see.

In order to get the frame around the stamped image, I cut out 2 of the shape from the Chalk Talk framelits and cut one in half vertically and the other horizontally. I then mounted them on the back of the stamped image to give it a lovely frame.

And I got to use my new What’s Up punch as well!!!

Are you ready for Christmas?

I’m not ready to embrace the fact that it is only 115 days until Christmas!!! Eeeeekkkk!!!!!

But to make it easier, the next Holiday Catalogue is now available!! There are lots of great stamps, accessories and new products to get you ready for Christmas!!

One of my favourite new products is the gift box punch board. Check out the video below from Stampin’ Up! which show how it works.

I’ve had a play and it’s so easy and quick to make a cute box to give to a friend.

If you would like a copy of the catalogue, please send me an email to stampinwithrebecca@yahoo.com.au with your address and I’ll pop one into the post for you.

CTC07 – I can make my own signs!!

I just love being able to make my own Home Décor!! and using My Digital Studio, I can do it in a snap!!

This week at CTC, we are playing with the Home Décor section of the catty. I decided to case page 100 of the AU/NZ catalogue.
page 100

Well, it’s sort of a case. I used the Grateful Hearts framables download, changed the background paper to Rose Red Brocade and voila, all done!! Then I just saved it as a Jpeg file and had it printed through The Canvas Factory. As you may know, I recently re-did my craft room and painted my walls Rose Red so this matches nicely.

Here it is on the wall. Can you see my new ribbon storage? Thanks, Ikea!!

I love the mo, bro!!

I have to confess that I love the new moustache framelit and matching stamp set!! When I first saw it, I thought it was very cute but I didn’t need it. But I kept looking at it and finally decided to bite the bullet and get it. And at only $13.95 for the framelit, you can’t really go wrong!!

I thought it would make a great card for Father’s Day for stamp club so I did a quick search on Pinterest and found a great card by Rose Castillo here.

I only made a couple of changes by punching out the sentiment with the Word Window punch and mounting it on the Modern label punch. I love the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamps set as they all fit into the word window punch and there are lots to choose from. A couple of the ladies used the Happy Birthday stamp instead.

And here’s a closer look at the mo.

I hope you like it!! And I hope Dad and Pop don’t look here before Father’s Day!! I think I’m pretty safe!!

Happy Stamping

CTC06 – You are a star!!!

I have just bought the Stars framelits and I am in love! They are very nice!! I had bought the Be the Star stamp set and forgotten to get the matching framelits (tell me, how does that happen!!). So when the current Big Shot special included a Holiday stamp set and the star framelits for 15% off, I snapped them up straight away!!

So I was hanging out to try them on this week’s project for Caseing the Catty. We are up to the Kids section of the catalogue and I thought I would try the project on page 93 of the AU/NZ catalogue.

page 93

BUT, I didn’t have a jar, so I decided to try it as a card. I like to use the Colour coach to help choose a colour combo and I went with Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party. I used the new Hearts & Stars decorative mask and white staz-on on a piece of Window Sheet and let it dry. I then got out my new framelits (actually they hadn’t even hit the shelf yet) and cut out the silver glimmer paper stars. Then I used the star template from the Eclectic paper-piercing pack to go around the star. I found that I had to go over it without the template to get a deep hole that you could see.

What do you think?

Caseing my amazing friend!!

As you know, I sort of like Blendabilities!! Ok, I lurrvee them!!

I also love the Perfect Peacock stamp in the latest catalogue. It’s great for using blendies but you don’t really need to blend much on it as it’s small in parts.

My wonderful, talented friend, Emma Palonek who is a member of my team (she is my stamping niece!!), created a gorgeous card which I decided to case for my latest Stamp Club. Em doesn’t have a blog yet but you can check out her work on her Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/vintagegraffiti.

I love the idea of using the Typeset Specialty DSP as the background. I didn’t realise until I used it that it is a lighter weight paper than usual DSP. And the hint of gold foil is a lovely touch of bling.

To do the ribbon, I cut a long piece of the crumb cake seam binding ribbon, wet it and then scrunched it up into a ball in my hand and then dried it with my heat gun. I then tied the ribbon and scrunched it again and dried it more. And of course, it’s not complete without sequins!!

Isn’t it gorgeous!! Just like Miss Em!!!
