CTC381 – Case Boughs of Holly Suite

Welcome to another fun week of Caseing the Catty!! This week, we are casing the Boughs of Holly Suite on page 24 of the July – August 2022 Mini Catalogue.

Isn’t this a stunning suite! The Boughs of Holly DSP is so lovely. I have decided to case the card on the top of page 24.

I haven’t strayed too far from this card as it’s just so nice. For my background, I’ve used Real Red cardstock and then a layer of the
Snowflake Specialty Vellum. I then stamped the leaves and cut them out with the Holly Berry dies. I then glued them together. I also cut out some Real Red holly. As per the original, I cut a length of the Natural Finish ribbon and coloured the edges using a Real Red blend. I then cut it in half and tied a bow. I added some Gold Holly leaves and put some Wink of Stella on everything. The sentiment is from the Leaves of Holly stamp set and cut out using the Holly Berry dies.

Next up is the lovely Julia.

CTC379 – Sale-a-bration

I hope you are having a great weekend. I’ve had to work so not quite as fun. But I do get Monday and Tuesday off so I’m looking forward to lots of crafting.

This week, we are back casing the Sale-a-bration catalogue.

There are so many fabulous freebies to choose from but one I just love is the Tree Lot dies which go with the Trees For Sale stamp set in the July – December 2022 Mini Catalogue. I’m casing the card on page 12. You can get the Tree Lot dies for free when you spend $180 in catalogue products.

I didn’t want to do multi coloured trees but I have done four different shades of green, Shaded Spruce, Parakeet Party, Garden Green and Old Olive. I stamped the large and medium trees in each colour then die cut them out. I also used the Brushstroke Specialty Paper for the background and cut it out using the Stitched Rectangle dies. I added a piece of Basic White behind it to make it stand out. I then played with my layout of the trees and attached them to the card. The smaller trees are popped up with dimensionals. Of course, I had to add a caravan!! I cut it out using the Glimmer Specialty Paper and added a piece of vellum for the windows. I did put the cut out behind the vellum as you could see through it. The sentiment is from the Trees for Sale stamp set.

CTC378 – Love and Thanks

It’s been a gorgeous sunny weekend!! I hope you’ve been able to get out and about to enjoy it. My husband and I went out on for a ride on our scooters and we had a great time, until someone’s battery went flat!! I got to wait with the dead one whilst my husband took mine and got the car. Fun times!!

This week, we are casing the Love, Thanks and Support section, pages 56 to 77, of the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue.

There are lots of pretty cards in this section and it was hard to decide which card to case. And then I turned to page 74 and I knew I had to have a play with the hexagon card.

I don’t have the Honeybee Home set although I think I might need it!! I cut out the hexagons from the Beautiful Shapes dies and used a piece of Fresh Freesia dsp from the Butterfly Kisses DSP. I then used a blending brush on white cardstock to create lighter colours in the same shades. I then laid out the hexagons to work out the layout and attached them. The sentiment is from the Lovely & Lasting stamp set. I did pop up this one with dimensionals. I cut the flowers out from the Meadow dies and coloured them using Old Olive and Daffodil Delight blends. I added a few retired ladybug trinkets instead of bling as I thought they were cute.

CTC376 – Case Mini Catalogue

It’s new catalogue week!! It’s always exciting to see a brand new catalogue and especially one that is Christmas!!!

So this week, we are casing the July – December 2022 Mini Catalogue. It’s your choice of anything that takes your fancy.

I didn’t think I was ready for Christmas so early in the year but once I saw the new catalogue, I realised I wasn’t!! This week, whilst I am using a Christmas stamp set, I actually haven’t made a Christmas card. It’s always fun to find a different way to get more value out of a Christmassy set.

I am casing one of the cards on page 23 which features the returning Merriest Moments bundle.

What is that gorgeous background paper, I hear you ask? Well it’s from the fabulous Celebrate Everything DSP which is a hostess gift. You need to select this when you host your next workshop. You get 48 sheets with 4 sheets of each of 12 double sided designs.

So now I have you convinced about this DSP, I actually used a different DSP for my card!! I used a piece of the Blushing Bride paper from the Gingham Cottage DSP as my background. I then cut out a piece of vellum using the Merriest Frames dies and cut it up.

I stamped out some of the flowers from the Merriest Moments stamp set in So Saffron and the flower centres in Blushing Bride and cut out using the dies. I then layered the 2 different sized flowers with glue dots and played around with my layout and then stuck it all down. My sentiment is from the Wildlife Wonder stamp set and it is cut out using the Seasonal Labels dies. Oh and I embossed it in white embossing powder.
