CTC155 – Case Gift Packaging

ctc_header

I’ve had a lovely week of holidays but sadly I’m back at work tomorrow.  But counting down to the next lot of holidays in only 5 weeks!!

This week at Caseing the Catty, we are casing Gift Packaging from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue and the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

I didn’t actually go too far to be inspired.  Just as far as the cover of the 2017 Holiday catalogue, in fact!

I liked the acetate box on the right hand side of the cover, featuring the Cheery Chirps stamp set.

Once I started making this and taking a closer look at the project, I realised how much detail is on it.

I wanted to use my new Stampin’ Blends to colour the images, so I went with the colours that are available in the pens like Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler.

So firstly, I cut out a piece of Old Olive cardstock to fit the front of the box and embossed it with the Quilt Top Embossing Folder.

The leaves around the bird are actually taken from the other bird stamp in the set.  I stamped it in Memento Black and coloured with the Old Olive Stampin’ blends and fussy cut out.

I cut out a circle from the Stitched Shapes framelits and stamped and coloured the bird.  I then used the fine tip glue pen to attach the leaves to the circle.  I used a piece of a doily behind the circle.

Then there’s a Pool Party Everyday Label punch behind the circle.

So then I cut out a piece of Cherry Cobbler and trimmed the corners to create a tag.  I cut a Silver foil snowflake in half and attached behind the tag.  I then attached the whole lot to the embossed Old Olive piece.

I added a silver tinsel bow for a bit of bling.

Falling Flowers Bridge Fold Card

It’s been a lovely week of holidays following the excitement of Onstage.  I’ve put up my Christmas Trees (no, it’s not too early!!), done some Christmas shopping and spent time in the craft room.

I have my regular card making class on Saturday and the ladies are always up for a challenge (hehe, well I like to think so!), so I decided to check out Bronwyn’s tutorials over at Addinktive Designs.

I decided to have a try of the Window Box Bridge Fold card, which you can check out here.

I have used the Falling Flowers stamp set with the co-ordinating May Flowers framelits.  I also used the Petal Garden DSP stack and took the colours of the stamping and card stock from that.  I have used Old Olive, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugar plum.

When cutting out the flowers, I felt that they needed a bit more colour so I used my blender pens and coloured in the flowers.

For my sentiments, I used the Birthday Banners stamp set and the Window Shopping stamp set, so that the ladies have a couple of different options.

In the centre of the flowers, I have used a glitter enamel dot for a bit of sparkle. I’ve also added Wink of Stella to the smallest flower.

If you would like the tutorial to create a Window Box Bridge Fold card, make sure you head on over to Bronwyn’s tutorial shop and purchase yours today.

I’d love to hear what you think about my version of the Window Box Bridge card, so please leave me a comment.

Onstage Presentation – Part 2

Here is the second part of my post about my Onstage Local Presentation in Melbourne. You can check out part one here.

I also created a number of tags using the To and From stamps from the Fruit Basket stamp set and every sheet of the Tutti Frutti DSP stack.  I really love these papers!

I used an assortment of punches and framelits to create these tags.

I hope I have inspired you to create with the Tutti Frutti bundle!

Onstage Presentation – Part 1

I was really honoured to be asked to do a presentation for Stampin’ Up! during the recent Onstage Local event in Melbourne.

I was showcasing the Tutti Frutti bundle from the upcoming 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  It will be available to customers on 3 January 2018, and demonstrators can pre-order it from 1 December, unless you attended an Onstage event, in which case hopefully you have already done your Product Purchase Premier order!

This bundle consists of the Fruit Basket stamp set and co-ordinating Itty Bitty Fruit Punch pack, a tutti frutti cardstock pack (Real Red, Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist and Daffodil Delight), Tutti frutti classic stampin’ spots in a four pack (Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Lemon Lime Twist and Soft Suede), Tutti frutti 6″ x 6″ designer series paper, Tutti frutti adhesive backed sequins, Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ mini striped ribbon, Tutti frutti washi tape and then the Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes that you can earn for free during Sale-a-bration.

So firstly, here I am up on stage for my presentation.  I got a bit nervous when I saw everyone coming into the room but I was ok once I was on stage.

Here I am with my display of cards.

I was asked to create a number of samples and to share how I would use this bundle in my business.  I plan on running a class using the wood crate framelits and the envelope punch board.  Here are the samples I created.


 


I also give my hostess’s a gift for having me do a presentation in their home.  I usually give them the card I demonstrate but for this set, I created a tag and added it to a package of pineapple lollies.

I also created a number of cards using this bundle.  I really love the DSP so these cards focus on that.

Of course a stamp set called Fruit Basket wouldn’t be complete with a couple of fruit baskets! I also found the notecards and envelopes to be a good size for this set. (It’s also a bit challenging to photograph a white card with a white background!)

The next set of cards are using the Tutti frutti cards and envelopes that you can earn for free with a $90 purchase during Sale-a-bration (which starts on 3 January).  Oh and look, I even stamped on the envelopes!

For my last set of cards, I used the outline stamps to create the background.

For the second part of the samples I made, check out part 2 here.

CTC154 – Case a Colouring Project

It’s been an exciting, but full-on weekend!!  I’ve been to the Onstage Local event in Melbourne with my fellow demonstrators!  Onstage is held every 6 months with an Onstage Live event for 3 days (which is in Utah this time), and local events held throughout the world on the same weekend.  Oh and it’s only for demonstrators, so if you want to come in April 2018, you’ll need to join up and become a demo!!

I also had the privilege of being asked to do a presentation of a bundle of products that are coming out for the 2018 Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues.  You’ll have to wait until Tuesday to check them out!!

So this week, we are casing a Colouring Project from either the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue or the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  I decided to go with the Annual Catalogue since it’s been a while that I had a look through it.

With the arrival of the Stampin’ Blends, I also purchased a few of the colouring stamp sets.  I decided this week to case the Hey You card, on the left on page 169 but I decided to use the other stamp in the set, the Good Vibes stamp.

I stamped firstly on Whisper White thick A4 cardstock, using Memento Black ink.  I started off by colouring the word, Good Vibes using the Bermuda Bay pens as that’s one of my favourite colours!  I then coloured the flowers in all the other colours!  I like bright, what can I say!!

I then embossing a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock using the Layered Leaves embossing folder like the sample.  I added a piece of Pear Pizzaza shimmer ribbon and a bow.  I was actually surprised at how quickly this card came together.

Next up on the hop is the lovely Angela.

I’m off to bed now as I’m stuffed from such a big weekend!!

Happy Stamping

CTC153 – Case a Holiday Catalogue Tag

It’s been another lovely week in Queensland!  Summer is definitely coming quickly!

We are casing Tags from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue this week.

As I was flipping through the catalogue, I realised how many tags are actually in there!  So many!  I actually ended up not casing a tag but casing another project and turning it into a tag.  I cased the Stocking and pillow box on page 15.

I love the snowflake included in this set so I had to use that!  I created the base of the tags using the pillow box die and cut it by hand to the score lines.  I used the lovely Merry Music Specialty DSP as the base for the wreath tag.  I then stamped out the holly leaves from the Tags and Trimmings stamp set on Pear Pizzazz cardstock and Wild Wasabi cardstock.  I cut them out using the dies and laid them in a circle to see how they fit.  Once I was happy with the layout, I then attached them using a glue dot under the end of leaf.

I then inked up just a part of the Celebrate the season stamp with versamark and did some white embossing on the black cardstock.  I used the banner triple punch to cut the ends of the banner and used a dimensional to attach it.  To create the holly leaves, I cut the trimming die in Cherry Cobbler and just carefully cut the balls off.  I used the white chalk pen and then some Wink of Stella for a bit of bling.   A small piece of gold ribbon and voila, all done!

I used a second base of the pillow box die as before, and stamped it with the snowflake stamp in Crumb Cake.

I then stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock.  The “inside” words weren’t quite as solid as I would have like, so I used my black marker to go over the stamping.  I added a piece of Real Red ribbon to the top and bottom of the sentiment piece and used it to create the hanger as well.

I then cut out the snowflake from a piece of Dazzling Diamonds and the Pear Pizzazz button.

 

I hope you like my tags today.  Make sure you come and join in with the challenge at our facebook group.
