CTC341 – Case a sparkly project!!

Welcome to a warm Sunday in Queensland!! It’s been raining off and on the last week or so and it’s rather humid today. So last week I got new carpet and flooring in my house and craft room. It’s been a big effort to move it all and then put it all back. I did a bit of re-arranging of my craft room and I love it! It’s working well so far.

Don’t you love the new floors!! I’m in love!!

So this week, we are casing a sparkly or glittery project from either catty. You won’t be surprised that I chose this challenge!!

So hard to choose which project to case!! I decided to case the card on page 44 on the right hand side.

I started off with cutting out the Ever Eden DSP (which will be available in November) and die cut a piece using the Christmas Pinecone dies. I then cut out a piece of Gold Vellum with the other Christmas Pinecone die. I used some left over glue dots from a kit as they were a bit smaller to attach the vellum to the dsp. I used another piece of the Ever Eden DSP which has graduating colours. I couldn’t decide which piece to use so I made two cards. I then cut out a frame using the Stitched Rectangle dies and the foam adhesive strips. A piece of gold shimmer ribbon behind the frame and it’s done!

The sentiment is from the Christmas to Remember stamp set and I used the Evening Evergreen ink.

Next up is the lovely Kathryn.

CTC339 – Case Painted Christmas

I’m writing my post a bit early this week as in Monday!! I am getting new flooring in my craft room next Monday as in tomorrow so I have to pack up everything that is on the floor! I can’t wait to have laminate flooring in the craft room as it will make it much easier to clean.

I hope it’s been a great week for everyone!! I’m sure it was!!

So this week, we are casing the Painted Christmas Suite, pages 16-23 of the July – December 2021 Mini Catalogue.

I decided to case one of the Encircle in Warmth cards on page 23. I went with the one on the bottom.

I cut out 2 wreaths from the Encircled in Beauty dies, one using the gold vellum and the SAB Be Dazzling paper. I then stamped the sentiment using markers to ink it up. I cut it out using the retired Stitched Shapes dies. I embossed a piece of real red using the Wintry 3d embossing folder. I did try to flick some Frost White shimmer paint but it wasn’t very successful. I added a piece of Real Red Sheer Ribbon as well.

This looks so much nicer in person!! It’s so sparkly!!

CTC338 – Sketch time!

Welcome to another fun week at Caseing the Catty! This week, we are casing a sketch of a card on page 34 of the July – December 2021 Mini Catalogue.

Here’s the sketch. Thank you to our Crew member, Rose for creating this graphic for us!!

I started off by flipping through my designer series papers and landed on the Heartwarming Hugs DSP and in particular, the plaid sheet. It makes my eyes go funny to look at it!! I decided to add a scalloped edge using the Scalloped Contour dies. I then cut out some of the Poinsettia flowers in the Red foil and layered them up using glue dots.

The sentiment is from the Whimsical Trees stamp set and I inked it up using a Real Red marker and Pear Pizzazz marker. I cut it out using the Pierced Blooms dies.

The flower is just so shiny!! I love it!!

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!
