CTC368 – Favourite newbie

What an exciting week!! It’s new catalogue week!! Are you as excited as I am? Probably not!!

This week, we are casing our favourite new catalogue project.

I was excited to see the He’s the Man suite as I need to make more cards for the men in my life. I’ve cased the card in the middle of page 78 (which is at the top of the image below).

I used the He’s the Man specialty DSP for the background and the centre piece which I distressed on the edges with a pair of scissors. The sentiment is from the He’s All That stamp set and cut out using the All That dies. The rest of the pieces are also cut out using the All That dies.

I actually made this for my team swap and I’m really pleased with how this turned out. I hope you like it as well.

Next up is the talented Julia.

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

CTC367 – Casing the Cover

It’s an exciting week in the Stampin’ Up! world!! We are saying farewell to the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue on Monday (it’s not too late to grab a deal!!) and hello to the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue on Tuesday!!

This week at Caseing the Catty, we are casing the cover of the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue. We’ve created a sketch of the card on the cover.

Here’s our sketch. Please feel free to use our sketch on your blog post.

I realised that I didn’t have any Mother’s Day cards ready yet, so I decided to use this sketch for the 2 cards that I needed.

I used a piece of the new Sun Prints DSP as the background of the card and then another pattern as the rectangle which is cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies. I then cut out a couple of circles using the new Stylish Shapes dies (these are my new favourites!!). My sentiment comes from the retired Strong and Beautiful stamp set but the sentiments were perfect for the card for my mum.

I made a slightly different version for my Mother-in-law. The papers in the Sun Prints DSP are just lovely!!

Next up is the lovely Julia.

It’s been a few weeks since I joined in with Colour Inkspiration and this week’s challenge is just great

The colours are Polished Pink, Just Jade, Soft Sea Foam and Misty Moonlight.

As always, I get out of piece of cardstock in each colour and then check out my stamp sets. I was inspired to use the Artistically Inked stamp set and create my own background using all the colours. I started with a larger piece than I planned to use and played with stamping the background. I added some gold gilded leafing for a bit of sparkle.

For the sentiment, I cut out a die from the Natural Prints die which is a sneak peak from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue and added a saying from the Artistically Inked stamp set.

CTC366 – Farewell Annual Catalogue

I hope you had a lovely Easter and then enjoyed a short work week. Isn’t it nice to have days off to craft? I sure did a lot!

This week, we are saying farewell to the Annual Catalogue and casing your favourite.

I love the Free as a Bird stamp set and I’ll be sad to see it go. I’m casing the card in the middle on page 82.

I decided to go with Pale Papaya cardstock as the base and then the next layer as the same. You can’t tell from the photo above but the stitchery greenery die has been used on the layer, so I’ve used the same as it’s one of my favourite dies. I used the Seasonal Labels dies for the large piece in the middle and stamped it in memento black. I coloured the birds using blends in Soft Suede, Pale Papaya, Just Jade and a new in-colour, Tahitian Tide. I tied a bow using the Glittered Organdy Ribbon. I stamped the sentiment in Tahitian Tide on Balmy Blue cardstock. And I’ve given you another sneak peak of the All That dies.

Next up is Peta and Marvi.

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