CTC200 – Toil & Trouble

ctc_header

The countdown for Orlando is going very quickly!! It’s 18 days until we go!!  I received my invitation to Centrestage yesterday, which is so exciting.  I get to go to Epcot for an afternoon/evening with all the leaders of Stampin’ Up! It includes entry into Epcot, a special gift, a copy of the Occasions Catalogue and a yummy dessert.  I can’t wait!!

But there’s still a few weeks of CTC to go before I leave!  This week we are casing the Toil & Trouble section, pages 48-55 of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

I’m not into Halloween, so I don’t have any of the Halloween sets.  I have based my project on one of the boxes on the title page, which has the spider web on it.

ctc200-bec-b

But I don’t have the boxes so I went with the pillow boxes.  Did you know these come in a packet of 10 for only $8.75.

So, one of the perks of being a demonstrator, is that we get to purchase products early!  There is a great bundle coming in the month of November that is featuring Snowflakes.  There are two stamp sets, Snow is Glistening and Happiness Surrounds, Snowfall thinlits, White Velvet paper and snowflake trinkets.

So I’ve used the Snowfall thinlits and cut out the largest Snowflake in Sparkle Glimmer paper.  I then stamped one of the smaller snowflakes from Snow is Glistening stamp set in Poppy Parade and cut it out with the thinlits.  I then painted in Wink of Stella for a bit of extra bling.

I stamped the sentiment in Garden Green and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes oval framelits.  I then cut out another snowflake in Garden Green and added on the Santa’s Workshop enamel shapes.

I really love this bundle and I can’t wait to play with it more!

Next up is the lovely Peta.

It’s an Extravaganza!


ON-LINE-CHRISTMAS-CLASS-copy

My fabulously talented friend, Bronwyn, is running an online Christmas Class Extravaganza at the moment and I am just loving it!!

As you know, I love fancy fold cards and one of our first projects is an Easel card.  I’ve been able to ink up my new Buffalo Check stamp.  Don’t you just love it!  Such a versatile stamp.

I’ve gone with Lovely Lipstick, Call Me Clover and Whisper White as my colours.  I love traditional Christmas colours!

add-16b

I’ve used the Detailed Lace Thinlits and did it on both sides of the strip of buffalo check.  Hasn’t it come up pretty!!  My sentiments are from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set.

CTC199 – Country Lane

ctc_header

I have had a great week!!  Family party to celebrate my Pop’s 95th birthday and then a quick trip to Sydney to see The Piano Guys at the Opera house.  The show was fabulous!!  Possibly one of the best shows I have ever seen.

ctc199 bec

This wee we are casing the Country Lane Suite, pages 42-47, of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

ctc199---fb

I just love the Tin Tile Dynamic embossing folder!!  It looks stunning done in gold, silver or copper foil but equally as lovely using cardstock.

I’ve decided to case one of the cards from the cover image,  at the bottom left hand corner.

ctc199-bec-b

I used the Tin Tile embossing folder in Blackberry Bliss for the background.  I don’t have the Country Lane stamp set but I do have the Country Lane DSP.  I fussy cut the vase and flowers (lucky it’s only small!!).  I stamped the sentiment from Flourishing Phrases in Blackberry Bliss and used the Everyday Label punch.  I added a strip of the DSP at the top and bottom of the punch.

Have you seen the Chicken wire elements in the catalogue?  I got them recently and I love them!!  Don’t they just add a bit of bling to the card!

CTC198 – Frosted Floral

ctc_header

I’ve got a busy weekend happening!  My Pop turns 95 next week and we had a family party yesterday.  All the grandkids and great grandkids came from interstate to celebrate together.  So nice to catch up with everyone.

Tomorrow I’m heading to Sydney with a friend to see The Piano Guys who are playing at the Sydney Opera House!!  I can’t wait!!

But today, I’ve been making the card for tonight’s blog hop.  This week, we are casing the Frosted Floral section, pages 36-41 of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

ctc198---fb

Oh I love the Frosted Floral bundle!!  The Frosted Floral Specialty DSP is just devine.  The pretty designs are on shimmery paper which steps it up a notch!

I am casing a card from the cover page, page 36.  It’s the one on the right, here.

ctc198-bec-b

I have made mine as a normal sized card.  Looking at the original, it seems that they might have fussy cut the flowers from the dsp.  Well, I don’t really like fussy cutting, and I’ve got a lovely set of framelits so I stamped a few of the flowers from the First Frost stamp set and cut them out with the Frosted Bouquet framelits..  I also cut out some using silver foil for an added bit of shine.

ctc198-bec-a

To create the sentiment with the border, the framelits come with two frame pieces.  I cut out a full sized white background and then using the smaller frame inside the larger one, cut it out in blushing bride cardstock.  I then just glued it over the white frame and added a bit of Stella.

I really love the colours in this DSP, it’s so pretty!!

Next up is the lovely Sandra in New Zealand.

CTC197 – Joyous Noel

ctc_header

Welcome to another week of Caseing the Catty.  I am really loving the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  I can’t wait for Christmas!!

This week we are casing the Joyous Noel section, pages 28-35 of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

ctc197---fb

The Joyous Noel suite is just gorgeous.  The DSP is to die for!!  However, I’ve decided to case the bauble card on page 34.

ctc197-bec-c

I made two cards using this card as inspiration.  My first one was a close case, however I have used the Dashing Along DSP instead of an embossed background.  I used the Great Joy stamp set which goes perfectly with Stampin’ Blends.  I’ve used Smoky Slate, Call Me Clover, Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight.

I also put Wink of Stella on the bow but it’s a bit hard to photograph.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Baubles stamp set.

ctc197-bec-b

This is such a great layout to case.  I’ve gone with a non-traditional colour theme of Bermuda Bay and Pool Party.

To create the embossed background, I used the new Big Shot embossing mats.  With the mats, you can use a die and instead of cutting, it just embosses the cardstock.  Awesome!!

I embossed the baubles from Beautiful Baubles in silver embossing powder and cut out with the largest circle from the Stitched Shape framelits.

ctc197-bec-a

Whilst I am a traditional  Christmas colour lover, I quite like the combo of Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and silver!

Next up is the lovely Rose.

CTC196 – Santa’s Workshop

ctc_header

I had my stamp class yesterday and it’s always nice to catch up with everyone.  It’s just lovely to get together with others who love the same thing as you do and craft together.  I hope you have a regular group that you can do that with.

I always love to get together with my online friends as well every Sunday night and share our crafting projects with you.  This week at Caseing the Catty, we are casing the Santa’s Workshop section, pages 18-27 of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

ctc196---fb

Aren’t all those little Santa’s cute!  I am doing a different card today though, and have cased the card on page 23 using the Peaceful Poinsettia bundle.

ctc196-bec-b

My card is fairly similar to the original but I’ve used the Dashing Along DSP that you can earn for free this month with a workshop of over $400 in sales.

I added gold foil along the sides of the DSP.  I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and then cut it out using the largest Oval from the Stitched Shapes framelits.  I then cut out a few of the flowers and holly in different colours from the Detailed Poinsettia thinlits.  I coloured the holly using Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends.

Welcome to another great week at Colour Inkspiration!   We are showcasing the Regals Colour collection this week.  You can choose 3 colours and any of the basics.

ci41

As you may know, I’m heading to Orlando in November to attend Stampin’ Up!’s 30th Anniversary Onstage event.  And, of course, I’ll be visiting all the Walt Disney World parks!!

The Graceful Glass vellum reminds me of the roses from Beauty and the Beast so I based my card around that.

I coloured using the Real Red and Shaded Spruce.  I added a piece of whisper white card stock behind the vellum to make the colours stand out more.  I also stamped two flowers from the Painted Glass stamp set and cut out with the Stained Glass thinlits.

I stamped the sentiment on a piece of crushed curry and cut out with the Everyday Label punch.
