CTC352 – Case the Mini

Have you been enjoying the new January – June 2022 Mini Catalogue? I haven’t had a lot of time to play this week but I have been cutting a paper share for my team and the new DSP’s are so lovely!! It’s hard to pick a favourite!!

This week, we are casing the mini catalogue. It’s your choice of whatever project takes your fancy.

I was flipping from the back of the catalogue (as you do!!) and noticed this cute circle deer card on page 47.

I decided to go with a Misty Moonlight background. I used the Bark embossing folder on the base card. I punched out 9 circle using a retired 1 3/8″ circle punch and stamped nearly all of the stamps from the free Sale-a-bration Awesome Otters stamp set. I then sponged around the edges like the original. I then stamped the cute otter in Memento Black and coloured him using Crumb Cake blends and the retired Pink Pirouette blends.

I put the main sentiment on a dimensional in the middle of the card. I added a piece of Faux Suede trim behind the otter and added him to the card.

How cute are those otters!! You can earn this set for free when you spend $90.

Next up is my clever friend, Julia.

CTC351 – Sale-a-bration

It’s been a wet, drizzly few days this weekend, which is perfect for crafting!! Fortunately, I have a new catalogue and free goodies to play with!!

This week, we are casing the 2022 Sale-a-bration Catalogue! Don’t you love freebies!!

I love the Friendly Hello Stamp set and the matching Friendly Hello DSP. Yes you get 2 items as your freebie!! You get this bundle for free with purchases over $180.

I decided to case the bird card on page 13 of the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.

I wanted to create my own background so I stamped the double flower image randomly on a piece of Thick Whisper White and coloured the background using Balmy Blue blends. I coloured the centre of the flowers with So Saffron. I then stamped the bird and extra flower image and coloured with Balmy Blue, So Saffron and Granny Apple Green. I added some white twine behind the image (I suck at making these look arty!!).

I added a piece of Granny Apple Green and So Saffron to the bird piece. I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Friendly Hello stamp set in So Saffron and cut it out using the Scalloped Contours dies.

I’m really happy with how cute this card turned out! Next up is the lovely Tina.

CTC350 – Case Mini Catalogue Cover

Happy New Year!! Can you believe that it’s 2022!! Where did 2021 go? I’ve done lots of crafting projects this year, with lots of stamping, embroidery, cross stitch, playing with my Scan’n’Cut, diamond painting and more!

Do you set goals? I don’t usually but one I’m thinking of is to finish the worldest biggest cross stitch that I’ve been working on the last 4 years. I’m doing the Fairytale Town cross stitch which is 165 cm x 30 cm. It’s as long as I am tall!! Here’s my progress since January last year.

I’m over half way now so I’m feeling inspired to get it done. Cross stitch is my first crafting love (second is stamping!!) and I always love doing it.

Are you ready to see the new January-June 2022 Mini Catalogue? Well it starts on Tuesday 4th January along with the next Sale-a-bration!! To celebrate, we are casing the Cover of the Mini Catalogue.

Whilst it’s only the one card, I can’t wait to see what the Crew has done with it. I’ve gone with a similar layout and cut a frame using the rectangle dies using the Heart & Home DSP as the background. I then added a strip of the DSP and added the denim ribbon and bow across it.

The sentiment is from the Blessings of Home stamp set. The flower is from the same set. I was going to colour it but it stamped so nicely, I decided to leave it. I added a few die cut flowers from the Flowers of Home dies.

Next up is the lovely Monique.

CTC349 – Case Mini Catalogue

Can you believe that we are at the last hop of the year!! I feel like this year has gone so quickly.

For our last hop, we are casing the July-December 2021 Mini Catalogue. It’s your choice to case anything!!

I decided to case one of the cards on page 20 which feature the Words of Cheer bundle. This is a great set that I haven’t used enough! I don’t know about you but I think I’m finished with making Christmas cards, so I decided to create a birthday card using the Happy die. I’ve actually cased the cheer card on this page.

I liked the stamping on the background so I used a couple of birthday sentiments from the Art Gallery stamp set which I stamped in Fresh Freesia. I then cut out a piece of vellum and the two happy die cuts.

And of course, you need some bling, so I used some retired Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper to cut out the stars from the Christmas Cheer dies.

We will be back Casing the Catty on January 2 so I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a fun New Years!!

Next up is the lovely Peta and Marvi.

We hope you can join in the challenge, so please share over on at our Facebook group.
