CTC337 – Steppin’ It Up

I hope you have had a great week! It was so warm yesterday when I had my card class. We had to put the air con on! Luckily, it’s a bit nicer today.

This week at Caseing the Catty, we are stepping up projects from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalogue. What is stepping up? Well it’s taking a card and stepping it up a notch!! You might have a simple stamping card, and add a few more layers of DSP, or add ribbon. You get the idea!!

I decided to case the ornament card on page 24 which uses the Whimsical Trees stamp set.

I love traditional red/green combo for Christmas so I went with a Cherry Cobbler base. I then stamped the ornaments across the top of a piece of basic white using Memento Black. I then stamped them again on a scrap piece of cardstock and coloured them in using Cherry Cobbler, Mango Melody and Shaded Spruce blends. I then cut all 10,000 of them out! (it felt like that many!!) I then added mini dimensionals and attached them over the stamped ones. I also added Wink of Stella because, well glitter!!

I added a scalloped border of the panel in Shaded Spruce using the Scalloped Contours die. The sentiment is from the Christmas to Remember stamp set.

Here’s a side on look to see the dimension of the ornaments.

I have to admit that I’m starting to get a bit excited about Christmas!! I’m getting new carpet in the main rooms of my house so we are in a bit of chaos at the moment but once the carpet is in and we’ve moved back into those rooms, I can start to think about decorating!! I got a new dresser last year and I’m wanting to create a garland across the top of it. Can’t wait!!!

Next up is the lovely Julia. I can’t wait to see what she has created!

We would love to see your creation so please share over on at our Facebook group.

Happy Stamping

  2. It does feel like you are cutting out 10,000 when you are fussy cutting, I know it does for me. The addition of the scalloped edge layer and raised ornaments was a great way to step up the original card.
