CTC206 – Casing a Holiday Colour Combo

ctc_header

Welcome to another week of Caseing the Catty.  We are casing a colour combo from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

I’ve had a little trouble finding my mojo today!  It’s so hot in Queensland !!  Although the temperature says it’s “only” 27 degrees, it feels a lot hotter!!

I like the deck the halls card on page 10 and the colours of the Joyous Noel glimmer paper, Copper, Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide.

As my mojo has melted out of the building, I’ve just cased this card.  I hope you’ll forgive me!!

I used the Wood Textures DSP as the background and embossed it with the Sparkle embossing folder and ran the Whisper White craft ink pad gently over the top to highlight the stars.

I then cut a banner and baubles from the Joyous Noel glimmer paper.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Baubles stamp set.  This is such a sparkly card!!

CTC197 – Joyous Noel

ctc_header

Welcome to another week of Caseing the Catty.  I am really loving the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  I can’t wait for Christmas!!

This week we are casing the Joyous Noel section, pages 28-35 of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

The Joyous Noel suite is just gorgeous.  The DSP is to die for!!  However, I’ve decided to case the bauble card on page 34.

ctc197-bec-c

I made two cards using this card as inspiration.  My first one was a close case, however I have used the Dashing Along DSP instead of an embossed background.  I used the Great Joy stamp set which goes perfectly with Stampin’ Blends.  I’ve used Smoky Slate, Call Me Clover, Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight.

I also put Wink of Stella on the bow but it’s a bit hard to photograph.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Baubles stamp set.

This is such a great layout to case.  I’ve gone with a non-traditional colour theme of Bermuda Bay and Pool Party.

To create the embossed background, I used the new Big Shot embossing mats.  With the mats, you can use a die and instead of cutting, it just embosses the cardstock.  Awesome!!

I embossed the baubles from Beautiful Baubles in silver embossing powder and cut out with the largest circle from the Stitched Shape framelits.

Whilst I am a traditional  Christmas colour lover, I quite like the combo of Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and silver!

Next up is the lovely Rose.

CTC194 – All is Bright

ctc_header

Welcome to Spring!!  Can you believe we are in September already!!  What is more exciting is that the 2018 Holiday 2018 starts this week!!

We are getting in a little early this week as the 2018 Holiday Catalogue starts on 5 September.  We are casing the All is Bright Section, pages 4-11.

ctc194---fb

I just love all the gorgeous projects in these pages!  I decided to case a couple of the cards from page 4.  The All is Bright DSP is just lovely.  One side of the paper has a photographic image and the other side is a pattern.  I’ve used the gold bauble DSP.  I don’t have the poinsettia stamp so I used the Stitched Labels Framelits in Real Red.  I cut out 6 green branches from the Christmas Staircase thinlits.  I cut out the two Merry’s from the new Merry Christmas thinlits.  I have some left over gold foil from a previous kit so the Merry is a little shiner than usual.

ctc194-bec-a

I couldn’t decide which card to do so I did a second card! I combined some elements from one of the other cards on the page.  Instead of embossing the background with Shaded Spruce cardstock, I used a piece of gold foil.  Don’t you love the Swirls and Curls embossing folder!

You can create your own doily using the Detailed Bauble thinlits.  I stamped the sentiment in Real Red and cut out the holly in Shaded Spruce and added some pearls coloured with Stampin’ Blends.  I added some Real Red solid ribbon behind the doily and attached to the card.
