CTC28 – Mother’s Day

This week at Case-ing the Catty, we are casing the Mother’s Day section of the Occasions catalogue.

You may have come from the fabulous Nikki’s blog or be starting here. I’ve decided to case the note book shown on page 36 of the AU/NZ catalogue.

But I didn’t want to do a notepad for my mum. I do need a gift box for her special present, so I used the notepad as my inspiration.

I made the box using the Gift Box punch board and stamped it with one of the flower images from the Mum’s Love stamp set. I love this punch board!! I then made a belly band and stamped it using the retiring in-colours, Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding and also So Saffron (which isn’t retiring!!). I added a couple of sequins for a bit of bling!!

To make the tag, I used the Party Pennants Bigz die and cut out a Gold Vellum banner and a whisper white one. I used the sentiment from the Mum’s Love stamp set and added a few flowers like the belly band.

I added the in-colour twine and a string of sequins. I also put a piece of washi tape across the bottom of the tag.

I hope you like my box!! and I hope Mum does too!!

29 August 2012 – Sneak Peak 3

As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I have access to a demonstrator only forum which links all demos from around the world, Stampin Connection.  It has a great gallery of images for inspiration.  The first card that I am sharing today is by Melissa Stout, The Stamp Doc.  Check out her website here for a video on how she made this cute card.

This card is using the Festival of Prints DSP from the new Seasonal Catalogue.  This pack gives you 48 sheets of gorgeous papers that are 11.4 cm x 16.5 cm.  I think this is the first time that I have used the pennant part of the Perfect Pennants die!!

Ink:  Early Espresso

Paper:  Festival of Prints DSP, Early Espresso , Very Vanilla, Old Olive

Accessories:  Big Shot, Holiday Collection framelits, Silver Glimmer paper, rhinestones, Perfect Pennants Bigz Die, Dotted Scallop ribbon border punch, Scallop trim border punch and scallop edge border punch.

This card is from fellow Aussie demo, Ellen Woodbridge.  It uses the Papaya Collage stamp set from the New Catalogue.  You can see what I mean about needing the framelits for banners!!  Never mind, it’s the thought that counts, right?

Ink:  Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit

14 August 2012 – July Stamp Club

Hi there,

It’s starting to get a bit warmer during the day now although it is a bit chilly at night time.  Here’s the cards that we made at July Stamp Club (yes I know I’m late posting!!)  I was inspired by swaps that I had received at Convention for all these cards.  The first one is from fellow Demonstrator, Cathy Clark.

Here is her card using the Spirelli technique.

And here is my card.  Yes, it’s time for a Christmas Card!!

Paper:  Letters to Santa DSP, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler

Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive markers

Accessories:  Big Shot, Perfect Pennants die, Boho Blossoms punch, White baker’s twine, Cherry Cobbler baker’s twine, Rhinestone.

The next card was inspired by Bronwen Cornish. I did virtually the same card that she did.  We made ours in Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise.  You can’t really tell from the photo but we put a multipurpose adhesive sheet over the centre panel and put dazzling diamonds over the top.  We were all a bit sparkly going home!!

Stamps:  It’s Your Birthday, Mixed Bunch

Paper:  Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White

Ink:  Tempting Turquoise

Accessories:  Blossom punch, Multi-purpose adhesive sheets, 1″ circle punch, dazzling diamonds.

The last card was by Heather Moekotte which I just love!  I really love the Tea Shoppe stamp set. And guess what, it’s in the new Catalogue!!!!  woo hoo!!!

19 March 2012 – Journal

Hi everyone!!

I didn’t realise it had been so long since I last posted here.  I’ve been meaning to but I haven’t made much new stuff lately.

This weekend I went to the Hillsong Colour Conference in Sydney with my sister and friends.  We had a great time and I learnt a lot from the word of God with inspring speakers Beth Moore and Priscilla Shirer.  I made all the girls a journal so that they could take notes during the sessions.

I used a journal from a $2 shop and covered them with the Berry Blossoms DSP.  I love the glimmer paper and the Perfect Pennants die, so I had to combine the two!!

Here’s a close up of the lower portion.

Stamp Set:  Broadsheet Alphabet

Ink:  Calypso Coral

Paper:  Berry Blossoms DSP, Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade

Accessories:  Big Shot, Perfect Pennants Die, Silver glimmer paper, 1 3/4″  circle punch, 1 3/8″ circle punch, 1 1/4″ circle punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, scallop edge border punch
