CTC375 – Farewell Mini Catalogue

I hope you are enjoying the sunshine this weekend. I had to work yesterday but it’s a gorgeous day at home today.

We are casing our favourite retiring product from the January – June 2022 Mini Catalogue. Can you believe we are saying farewell to this catalogue already? How are we at the end of June!!

I am casing one of the rainbow cards on page 18/19 of the January – June 2022 Mini Catalogue. I think the Rainbow of Happiness bundle is really cute and I haven’t used it enough. I love a shaker card so I went with the card in the middle. I also wanted to showcase one of the dsp’s from the catalogue, so I used the Flowering Fields DSP for the background. I also found the Mother of Pearl Specialty paper which I used for the rainbow. It’s so sparkly!!! Then I used the Foam Adhesive strips around the edges and along the strips of the rainbow. Then I realised that I forgot to add a window sheet so that I could add sprinkles, so no shaker card for me!! I then cut out the rainbow tag and added the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry. I coloured a piece of Whisper White crinkled seam binding ribbon using a Rich Razzleberry marker so that I could get a matching ribbon.

This catalogue finishes up on 30 June so make sure you get your last minute order in soon!!

CTC374 – Farewell Bundle

I hope you have had a great weekend. I had my card class yesterday and a Stampin’ Up! crafting event online last night. My craft room looked like a bomb had exploded in it, so I spent some time this morning finding the desk and putting it all away. It’s so much nicer to work in a tidy space!! And I found an ink pad that had been hiding!

We are saying farewell to the January – June 2022 Mini Catalogue at the end of this month, so this week’s challenge is to case your favourite retiring bundle.

I was flipping through the catalogue and I realised that I had the Dahlia Days bundle and I hadn’t used it!!! Isn’t that terrible!! I decided to case the card on page 35 on the top right hand side.

I cut out the large floral die in vellum and then stamped some flowers in Sweet Sorbet, Mango Melody and Parakeet Party. For the background of the card, I used a piece of the 2022-2024 In-Colour DSP.

I layered the flowers under the vellum die cut but added the tiny flowers on the top. As this is a red rubber stamp set, I was able to use markers to colour the stamp for the sentiment. I love that this sentiment/tag piece has a matching die in the Detailed Dahlias Dies.

This card also has a special feature in that it opens to the left instead of the normal right!! Ooops, didn’t discover that until it was too late to change it.

CTC373 – I love embossing

Welcome to another fun week of Caseing the Catty!! I’ve had a few weeks off blogging due to my shift work but I’m excited to back for this week! I love all the types of embossing.

So our challenge this week is to case an embossing project from either catalogue.

I decided to case a project from the January-June Mini Catalogue from page 22.

As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m planning a trip to Japan in March next year, so I’ve been excited by the whole Symbols of Fortune suite. Although I haven’t used it enough so it won’t be leaving my stash any time soon!! If you decide you need it too, it is retiring at the end of July and it is on sale now so grab yours before it sells out.

I’m really enjoying the slimline cards so when I noticed that this card had an embossed piece on it, I had to case it. I didn’t really re-invent the wheel when casing this card. I changed the background piece to a piece of the Symbols of Fortune DSP. I then embossed a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock using the retired Wrapped in Texture embossing folder. Embossing always gives me a little thrill!!

I then cut out a couple of pieces of cardstock using the retired Stitched So Sweetly dies and stamped the sentiment in Calypso Coral ink from the Crane of Fortune stamp set.

I cut out the floral piece in Evening Evergreen and layered it with a piece of Soft Succulent satin ribbon behind the sentiment. I then had to add some of the polished dots (which are one of my current favourites!!) like the sample card.

I’m so happy with how this card turned out!! The ribbon just seems to make it so luxurious!! Let me know what you think.

CTC370 – Case a mini bundle

It’s been a rainy drizzly weekend which is just perfect for crafting!! I had my catalogue launch class yesterday and we had a lovely time crafting whilst the rain was coming down.

We are back casing the 2022 January – June Occasions Catalogue this week. We are casing the bundles on pages 75 to 83.

I love the Crane of Fortune bundle at the moment. (Might have something to do with the trip to Japan that I’m planning for next year!!) I’m casing the card on page 77.

My travelling friend loves purple, so that inspired my colour choice for this card. The base is Highland Heather which I stamped in Gorgeous Grape using the Crane of Fortune stamp set. I then stamped the next layer which is Fresh Freesia cardstock using Fresh Freesia ink. Instead of a vellum strip, I cut out the long floral die in Basic White. I used Sahara Sand ink and paper for the crane.

The sentiment is from the Crane of Fortune stamp set and I cut it out using the new All That dies.

I’m so pleased with how this turned out!! Next up is the lovely Sandra.
