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.

Happy Stamping


 

 

 

 

 

CTC150 – Favourite Big Shot project

Here we are back at another week of Caseing the Catty.  We are casing our Favourite Big Shot project from the 2017 Holiday catalogue.

There are so many great big shot projects in this catalogue.  I couldn’t believe how many dies are in it.  It was hard to decide which project to choose!

I decided to go with the Tags and Trimmings bundle on page 15, using the Trim Your Stocking thinlits and the matching stamp set, Tags & Trimmings.

Wouldn’t it be fabulous to see an advent calendar with these cute stockings!  Sadly, I don’t have the time to make 25 of them!!  But I can make 3!  I decided to make a Joy banner instead.

Sadly you can’t tell that the baubles are sparkly!  I’ve used Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.

I just love the mini dimensionals.  They are so handy to use with the Large Letters framelits.

I used the new Quilted Christmas ribbon to make a little loop for the red tinsel trim to go through.  The photo really doesn’t do it justice to show how lovely it is.

Next up my amazing friend, Rose.  Happy Birthday for yesterday!

I hope you can join us at our Facebook group this week to share your projects.

Happy Stamping

Merry Patterns and Chocolate Holders

Did I get your attention with the word Chocolate?  I hope so!!

I have another tutorial from Brownyn Eastley to share with you today, the Christmas Chocolate holder.  Check it out here.

I’ve used the Merry Patterns stamp set and the cute deer that is a part of it.  Did you know that you can earn this stamp set for free this month when you have a workshop and have over $450 in sales.

This tutorial is easy to follow. As always, Bronwyn’s instructions are clear and easy.  These instructions allow you to create two holders at once.

I used the Be Merry DSP from the Annual Catalogue as I like the red, green and white colour combo.  And that way, I could also use the Quilted Christmas ribbon.

I did have to do a bit of fussy cutting on the deer but I think it makes it pop.  I did add an eye to the deer with just a black dot using a marker.  I also put Wink of Stella over the deer but it doesn’t show in the photo.

I love the look of the scallop circle on the inside. You can add in a chocolate but I didn’t have any at home that would fit into the slot.

These holders would make great teacher gifts, class gifts or a little extra gift on the table on Christmas day.

Happy Stamping

CTC95 – Favourite Holiday 3d item

ctc_header

I’ve had a few days off this week and I’ve been having a lovely time in my craft room.  I should be tidying it and going through the cupboards but that’s no fun!!

This week at CTC, we are showcasing our Favourite Holiday 3d item from the new 2016 Holiday Catalogue.

I always love the gift packaging featured in the Stampin’ Up! catalogues and this catalogue is no exception!!  Have you noticed the white gift boxes?  They are in a few projects through out the catalogue.  They are a glossy white box and come with an acetate sleeve and there are 8 boxes in a pack.

I’ve been inspired by two projects this week, the box with the real red stitched ribbon on page 6 and the Halloween box on page 53.

I just love the hostess sets in the Holiday catalogues so I’ve used the Cozy Critters stamp set.  I like the idea on the Halloween box of having the cut out shapes on the side of the box, so I stamped the branch from the stamp set and then stamped four owls and punched them out.  I also stamped an owl in Real Red and Early Espresso and hand cut the scarves.  I also stamped the eyes in Early Espresso and hand cut them as well.

I did cut out a white square to stamp the branch onto, as the box is glossy and stamping could smudge.  (And if I made a mistake, it didn’t waste the whole box!)

I then put the acetate band around the box and added a strip of the Candy Cane Lane DSP and the gorgeous Real Red Stitched Edge ribbon and made a bow  for the top.    Oh and I did make two panels, one for each side.
