CTC276 – Casing the animals of the Catty

I’ve had a fun weekend out at Stanthorpe as my youngest niece is turning 18. We had a family weekend of celebrations! I made her a chocolate raspberrry layered cake. It was delicious! And happy birthday my sweet girl!!

We have a fun case this week!! We are casing the animals of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue.

There are lots of cute animals cards in the catalogue this year!! It was hard to choose but I ended up going with a combination of the cards on page 54.

I decided to mainly case the card at the top but I also took the idea of creating your own background from the bottom one.

Firstly, I had to check what animal stamp sets I had. Of course, you don’t have to use an animal set but I thought I would. I only have the Free as a Bird set in my current stock (I do have a couple of keepers from ones that have retired). I was going to use an oval to cut out the middle but I went with the Stitched Nested labels dies instead. I stamped the background which is Just Jade cardstock with the leaves from the Free as a Bird set.

I stamped the birds in Memento Black and then coloured using mainly the new In-colour blends, Cinnamon Cider, Misty Moonlight, Magenta Madness, Just Jade and then Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie. I even used the colour lifter to lighten up the tummies of the birds.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays set.

Next up is the lovely Sandra in New Zealand.

We would love to see your creations casing the animals of the catalogue so please share over on at our Facebook group.

Happy Stamping

CTC246 – Feels like Frost

Welcome to another fun week at Casing the Catty!!

We are casing the Feels like Frost DSP (use the colours of the DSP as Inspiration and layouts from page 40) Balmy Blue, Blushing Bride, Highland Heather, Night of Navy, Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray, Smoky Slate, Whisper White.

Now I’m the one who comes up with our Challenges and when I created my projects for tonight, I just read the bit about casing a layout and missed the bit about using the colours of the DSP!! Oops!! So please forgive my use of different colours for this challenge!! Just do what I say, not what I do!!

So I was inspired by the layout on the bottom left.

I love the Let it Snow Specialty DSP however, I don’t have any of the matching stamps and punches etc. But the paper is just so nice on it’s own, so I kept my cards fairly simple.

My sentiments come from the host stamp set, Greatest Part of Christmas. I love this set as it has lots of nice sentiments. I used the Stitched Nested Labels which I love!!

I love the glitter on the paper but the photos don’t really do it justice.

Next up is the lovely Michelle.

We would love to see your creations showcasing this dsp over on at our Facebook group.

Happy Stamping!
