ctc_header

This week at Caseing the Catty, we are back sharing our favourites from the Sale-a-bration catalogue.

Did you know if you spend $90 on products from either the Annual catalogue or the Occasions catalogue, you can earn any of the products in the Sale-a-bration catalogue for free?  Isn’t that fabulous!!

Did you know that you can get a Project Life card collection for free?  It’s the Memories in the Marking Project Life Specialty card collection and it’s gorgeous!  You get 30 specialty cards that supplement our other Project Life collections.  There are 10 4″ x 6″ cards and 20 3″ x 4″ cards.  And of these cards, there are 15 overlays and 15 emboss resist cards!!!

Whilst these cards are great for using with Project Life, they are also good for making quick and easy cards.

So for my first card, I used a 4″ x 6″ black and white overlay.  Now remember it’s a bigger size than our usual card size, so keep that in mind when cutting your cardstock.  Ask me how I know!!  lol.

I put a piece of white underneath the overlay and then created my ice creams on a separate piece of cardstock and cut them out.  Aren’t the honeycomb embellishments to die for?  They are so cute!  I stamped the sentiment very carefully on the overlay in Staz-on ink and put it aside to dry for a while so it didn’t get smudged.

For my next card, I used one of the smaller 3″ x 4″ overlays and I added a piece of white cardstock underneath again.  I then used another SAB stamp set, What I love, for the sentiment.  A little bunch of flowers in the corner and it’s all done!!

For my last card, I used one of the emboss resist 4″ x 6″ pieces.  I carefully coloured each section with a sponge dauber.

I used the SAB Perfect Pairings stamp set for the sentiment and did a little paper piercing around the oval for an extra bit of detail.  A silver bow and again, another quick card.

CTC65 – Valentine’s Day

ctc_header

Can you believe that we are almost at Valentine’s Day!! It will be Christmas before we know!!

So this week at Casing the Catty, we are sharing Valentine Day projects. I decided to share a project from the Annual Catalogue. Yes, it’s still current!! My project is from page 28 of the Annual Catalogue, and I have turned the gift bag into a card.

I just love the Timeless Elegance DSP. It’s another one of those that I find hard to cut into! But I have managed it a few times now. I also love the matching Timeless Love stamp. It’s so lovely and delicate and just perfect for colouring. I lightly coloured the flowers in Blushing Bride and a hint of Pear Pizzazz on the petals. I then used Gold Wink of Stella on the centres of the flowers for just a little bit of sparkle.

I stamped my sentiment on a piece of vellum using the Basic Black Archival ink. Before you attach it to the card, make sure you let it dry on the vellum. If you don’t, it will smudge. Ask me how I know!! (Stamped it four times before it was dry enough to not smudge!!).

To get the black twine, I split a piece of the baker’s twine combo pack from the Occasions catalogue.  Great use of a left over piece!!

So don’t forget that you can join in with our challenge each week.  We are doing a monthly challenge so if you feel inspired to create and join in, please do.  We will choose a winner at the end of the month and post the results on the first post of the new month.

Are you ready to Hippity-Hop??

easter hop es

It is time for a blog hop with my fabulous stamping team, the Eureka Stampers!! With Easter quickly approaching, our theme is, of course, Easter!! Can you believe how fast the year is going!!!

You may be starting with my blog, or possibly have come from Carly Middleton’s blog. Don’t you just love her cute project!!

I have a couple of projects to show you today. I think the Happy Easter Bunny stamp in the Occasions catalogue is very cute and I wanted to showcase colouring the bunny.

For my first card, I wanted to use the Subtles Colour Collection and my blender pens, and I carefully coloured using Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz. I stamped using staz-on ink as I didn’t want it to bleed when I coloured.

My second card is made using the Brights Colour Collection and the Flowerpot DSP as the background. To be a little different, I used the bow builder punch. Isn’t it cute!!

easter hop 4

I think I will be sending these to my nieces for Easter with an ITunes gift card!! Easter eggs do not travel well in the mail!!

My third card is made using the Indescribable Gift stamp set. I think the flowers in this set are beautiful. I have also used my aqua painter to colour the flowers. I’m happy with how it turned out.

Can you smell the roses?

Well, not really, it’s too early for roses to be blooming but I’ve made some pretty ones today!!

As you may have noticed, I like using the new Blendabilities. Okay, so I LOVE using the new blendabilities!!! I got the rest of the colours when they became available (cos I NEED them all, you know!!) and I wanted to have a play with them.

My card today is loosely based on this one by Artistic Design by Rachel, which I found on Pinterest. I liked the way she had coloured the rose by not colouring right to the edge.

As I wanted to try a few colours, I made a set of cards using the Sweetbriar Rose stamp. Isn’t it pretty?

Here is the Melon Mambo blendies. It’s a very bright pink.

And last but not least, Rich Razzleberry.

I’m really happy with how these turned out. I don’t consider myself to be very arty, so I love how these pens make it look like I am!!

And I’ll just pause to say that I love the new Venetian Crochet Trim!! Is it pretty or what!!

Please let me know what you think!!!
