CTC 26 – Something Borrowed

We’ve had a bit of change at Case-ing the Catty and we are now doing a blog hop every week starting at 7pm on Friday.

This week we are casing the Wedding section of the Occasions catalogue (pages 42-44) of the AU/NZ catalogue.

I don’t have the wedding stamps as I’m in that period of no weddings (but lots of 40th’s!!).  I do however have the gorgeous Something Borrowed DSP and Something Lacy stamp.  Did you know that the DSP has 4 sheets of each pattern so if you are making invites etc, you have enough of one design to go around.

So I decided to case the card on page 42.

Isn’t it pretty!  I love the Something Lacy stamp!!  Especially when it is stamped on vellum.

Here is my version.

I used the sentiment from the Big News stamp set and embossed it in silver.  I coloured the flowers using the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker.   I used the White Jute Ribbon, Sahara Sand Lace Trim and the Silver Baker’s twine like the original which adds lots of dimension.

I decided to make another couple of cards to showcase the gorgeous Something Borrowed DSP.

I used the Perfect Pennants stamp set for the sentiment and cut it out with the Chalk Talk framelits.  I also used Lost Lagoon ribbon.

On this one, I used the Feels Good stamp set and the Deco framelits. I trimmed the top of the shape with my paper snips.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects. I’d love you to leave a comment below.

Please continue on hopping through the Design Team blogs. Next on the list is Alison Barclay.

CTC24 – Happy Easter!!

Isn’t the year just flying past? Who can believe that Easter is nearly upon us!!

At CTC this week, we are casing the Easter section of the Occasions catalogue which is found on pages 34 and 35 of the AU/NZ catalogue.

I decided to case the Petite Café gift bag on the top corner of page 34.

It’s cute, isn’t it? But I don’t have the For Peeps’ Sake stamp set. So I decided to make my tag using the Happy Easter Bunny stamp and just inking the bunny using the chocolate chip marker. I then coloured a few spots with blushing bride and pear pizzazz markers.

I also didn’t have the circle decorative mask so I carefully used my sponge dauber to make the dots. Remember, when you use white ink, to leave it to dry before you touch it. (Ask me how I know!!) I cut out 2 of the tag from the chalk talk framelits and cut one up and put the Sweet Dreams Designer Washi tape along the edge to make the tag stand out.

I used the Indescribable Gift stamp set for the Happy Easter sentiment.

Card Giving

I just love this quote on one of the stamps in the Lovely Romance set!! I have met lots of amazingly talented women in my Stampin’ Up! journey and I think this card might be off to one of them!!

I have based my project for this week’s Caseing the Catty challenge on the card on page 115.

page  115

I love the Friends Who Know stamp set but I don’t have it yet so I thought I would use the Lovely Romance set which is on the same page.

If you follow my blog, you would know that I like Blendabilities (well, just a little bit, lol!!). I thought I would try using them over the white embossing powder. Well, it works a treat!! I also tried it using the markers and do a comparison for you, but it didn’t turn out at all. There is barely any colour showing on the white embossing powder. But the blendabilities did a great job as you can see.

In order to get the frame around the stamped image, I cut out 2 of the shape from the Chalk Talk framelits and cut one in half vertically and the other horizontally. I then mounted them on the back of the stamped image to give it a lovely frame.

And I got to use my new What’s Up punch as well!!!

I’m in heaven!!

I had to work yesterday so I wasn’t able to get my blog updated but I did manage to get an order in!! Now to start stalking the post lady!!

I was able to receive a few new stamp sets at Convention earlier this year and one of my team members and I had an online stamping session where we gave each other a sketch to use with one of our new stamp set. Emma gave me this one from The Deconstructed Sketch (you can check them out here) I have to say I was a bit stumped to start with.

But I got there eventually, and this is what I came up with. And I finally used the gold sequins!!!!

18 September 2013 – One stamp, Two Stunners!!!

I am loving the all the Christmas stamps in the Seasonal Catalogue!! There are lots of great new kits to make sending your Christmas cards easy. I really like the Merry Little Christmas Simply Created Card kit. It includes just about everything you need to make 8 gorgeous cards to impress your friends with. It has cardstock cards, envelopes, envelope liners, die-cut designer series paper and cardstock accents, buttons and baker’s twine. All you need to add is the matching stamp set, Merry Little Christmas, and ink.

We did these at Stamp Club last week and the girls were impressed at how easy it was to put together.
