CTC204 – Favourite Holiday Big Shot Project

ctc_header

Well, my amazing holiday is all over and I’m back Caseing the Catty with you!

I had a wonderful time in Orlando, Florida, going to the Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios and of course, attending Onstage Live.

For those who don’t know, Stampin’ Up! holds demonstrator only events every six months, called Onstage.  There is a 3 day Live event held in one region and all the other regions have a 1 day local event.   This event was extra special as it was the 30th Anniversary of Stampin’ Up!  I was also privileged to attended the Centrestage Leadership event which was held at Epcot.

I’ll be doing a blog post this week sharing more about my trip, so make sure you check back.

So back to CTC!  We are casing our Favourite Holiday Big Shot projects from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

I love the Peaceful Poinsettia bundle which includes the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set and the Detailed Poinsettia thinlits.  I haven’t used this set enough!

ctc204-bec-a

I have cased the card on the right with a few changes.  I do love the corrugated embossing folder which I sponged (or dragged the ink pad over) in Whisper White ink.  I added a piece of Lovely Lipstick grosgrain ribbon to the right of the corrugated piece.

Another favourite big shot item is the Stitched Labels framelits, so I used the large label framelit for the sentiment.   I had already cut out the Poinsettia framelits and hadn’t used them, so I just played with the layout.

It’s an Extravaganza!


ON-LINE-CHRISTMAS-CLASS-copy

My fabulously talented friend, Bronwyn, is running an online Christmas Class Extravaganza at the moment and I am just loving it!!

As you know, I love fancy fold cards and one of our first projects is an Easel card.  I’ve been able to ink up my new Buffalo Check stamp.  Don’t you just love it!  Such a versatile stamp.

I’ve gone with Lovely Lipstick, Call Me Clover and Whisper White as my colours.  I love traditional Christmas colours!

I’ve used the Detailed Lace Thinlits and did it on both sides of the strip of buffalo check.  Hasn’t it come up pretty!!  My sentiments are from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set.

CTC191 – Nature’s Poem

ctc_header

It is so windy at my place today!!  Wait, is the Ekka on?  You bet it is!!  It’s always windy when the Ekka is happening in Brisbane.  My kitty cats have a bad case of static from the wind.

We are casing the Nature’s Poem section, pages 142 – 153 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.

ctc191-fb

As I flipped through this section, I realised that I only have two stamp sets in this entire section!  Now don’t hate me, but I’m actually not a fan of tree stamps!  I don’t own Lovely as a Tree and I don’t intend to buy it (cos if I did, that would be the year it retires, lol!!)

For my card this week, I am casing the leaf card on page 144.

ctc191-bec-b

I was inspired by the leaves to use the Blended Seasons stamp set and framelits.  I started with Cajun Craze (yes, one of my least used colours!) and the Nature’s Poem DSP.  I then cut out a couple of leaves using the framelits in Cajun Craze and Mango Melody.  I then sponged the mango ones with Cajun craze to tone down the brightness.

I stamped the leaves from the stamp set and coloured them using the new blends coming in the Holiday catalogue, in Cajun Craze and Mango Melody.  I then cut out all them all out.

I cut a piece of the Copper trim and spread it out (watch out, it shrinks!!) and attached it to the left side of the card.

I then placed the coloured leaves on the trim and then tucked the framelit leaves in between.  The sentiment is from the Blended Seasons stamp set and I’ve cut it out using the Stitched labels framelits.  I also sponged around the edge of this too.    I added a bow in Copper trim and all done!

ctc191---bec-a

I’m really happy with how this turned out.  You know when you have an idea and it actually works!!  Most of the time, that doesn’t happen!!

The Blended Seasons bundle is only available in the month of August so make sure you grab it soon!

Next up is the lovely Julia.

CTC185 – Best Route

ctc_header

As I write this post, it’s just started to rain!  YAY!!  We have had a fun week with water.  Last weekend, our water tanks ran dry and we had to get a delivery of water.  After drinking tank water for 11 years, I can really tell the difference!!  Blerk!!

Can you believe that we have only had the new catalogue for a month?  Doesn’t it seem like it came out ages ago?  Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like this year is just zooming past.

We are casing the Best Route section, pages 52-65 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.  I love the Best Route DSP and all the gorgeous accessories that go with it, like the enamel shapes, washi tape and the Maps Etc embossing folder.

ctc185--fb

I chose to case one of the cards on page 65 (but not the kitty one!).  I went with the pink one at the back. 

ctc185-bec-b

The Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty DSP is simply stunning.  You can do so much with this paper.  There are 6 distinct patterns which can be used on with the Delightfully Detailed Note cards and envelopes.  And then there are full sheets which can be cut out, which I have done for this card.  I coloured it using markers with Powder Pink and Soft Sea Foam.

I wanted to use a new colour, so I went with Highland Heather as the background which I stamped using the little crosses from the Stitched All Around stamp set.

I then sponged the back of the cut out with Multi purpose glue and carefully placed it onto the background.

I cut out a scallop circle from the Layering Circle framelits in Soft Sea Foam and the circle from the Stitched Labels framelits in Powder Pink.  I stamped the thank you stamp from Stitched All Around stamp set twice, once in Powder Pink and in Highland Heather and then cut out the thank you and layered it over the pink.

I added a piece of the polka dot tulle ribbon behind the circle which has a nice little bit of sparkle in it.

I’m excited to be joining in with this week’s Colour INKspiration challenge!

Stampin’ Up! ® has just had a major colour revamp so to start off the new catalogue year at Colour INKspiration we’ve decided to feature a Colour Collection for the first challenge each month (2nd Wednesday) until we have showcased them all!

The second challenge in the month (4th Wednesday) will be a Pinterest inspired pic as per usual just to mix it up a bit. This month we are starting off with the NEUTRALS COLLECTION and you can choose any 3 colours from that range for your challenge project. We are also changing the rules about what else you can add to the mix; essentially just the Basics – Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Basic Black as well as metallics.

I really wanted to have a play with the new Stitched Labels framelits.  They are just lovely.  I love the dotty background one, so I used it three times to cover the Merry Merlot piece and add a bit of texture.

I cut out the large label in Sahara Sand and stamped it using the sentiment from the Healing Hugs stamp set.  And have you noticed the gorgeous flower?  Isn’t it amazing??  This stunning flower (in Merry Merlot) and leaves (in Mossy Meadow) are two of the new Disinktive stamps which stamp beautifully with the new style ink pads.

ci35-bec

Now don’t tell anyone, but I actually used 4 colours from the Neutrals collection on this card!!  The base is Night of Navy, with Sahara Sand and Merry Merlot card stock.  When I stamped the flower, I realised that there was a matching set of leaves so I had to do them in Mossy Meadow.  Oops!!

Next up on the hop is the lovely Kim.
