CTC118 – Cool Treats

ctc_header

I can’t believe that we are in March already!  But yay for Autumn!!  Although I wish it would start to get a bit cooler.

Here we are with another Caseing the Catty challenge.  We are casing the Cool Treats section of the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.  This section is huge from pages 32-45.

I don’t have the Cool treats set, although I do have the Tasty Treats Specialty DSP which is sooo cute!  I decided to case the blue card on the right with the lace on the sides.

I love this layout.  I used the Suite Sentiments stamp set for my sentiment and the Balloon from the Up and Away thinlits cut out from the Tasty Treats Specialty DSP.   I sponged the background in pool party.  I did use watermelon wonder but my photo has come out a bit red than I intended!  I also used some Stella on the balloon for some extra sparkle!  (You know I love my sparkle!!)

There were so many lovely cards in this section that I had to do another one as well.  I cased the card on page 41.

I love a shaker card but I decided not to do that part on this card.  I wanted to try a different colour combo (although now that I look at the original, it doesn’t look much different!) so I went to My Create Ink for suggestions.

It came up with Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake, So Saffron and Blushing Bride. Once I had the colours, I felt it said baby card to me.

Don’t you just love the debossed look?  I love it and it looks fab with the stamping over the top.

ctc_header

Welcome back to another week at CTC!! The year is already going so quickly already!!

Our new home for our challenges is on the CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge Group and it’s going off!!  We are getting lots of entries to our challenges, which is so exciting!!  I love seeing how everyone interprets the catalogue projects!!  If you would like to join us over there, click here.

I decided to case the birthday candle shaker card from the Birthday Bright Project Kit on page 13.  This is a lovely kit which I made up for my Pop for Christmas.

I was inspired by one of the entries in last week’s challenge by Kate Gardiner, who used the very cute SAB Carried Away DSP.  (Did you know you can get this paper for free?)

I started with the Night of Navy cardstock for the base and added the scalloped dsp.  I then started on the balloon shaker.  I cut out 2 balloons, one Whisper White and one Watermelon Wonder.  I only wanted the outline of the white one, so I’ve kept the balloon for another project.  I added a piece of window sheet on the back and used the foam adhesive strips around the balloon shape.  I then punched out lots of stars using my star punch and added some Dazzling diamonds to the mix.  I then added another piece of window sheet over the top and then turned it over and shook it all around.  I may have got a bit excited about the glitter!!

Make sure you stamp on the white piece before you make the shaker.  (As me how I know!!) I stamped the clouds from the Lift Me Up stamp set and the you from Crazy about you

Then attach your layers to the base card.  I also cut out the happy from the Hello You thinlits using Peekaboo Peach.

Casing at Global Design Project

I haven’t played along at Global Design Project for ages, but I had to give it a go this week as the challenge is to case my gorgeous friend, Jessica Williams from The Paper Caper.  So this is her project and the challenge is to either case the layout, colours or theme etc.

I decided to case the colours and the layout.  I love Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron and I’ll be really sad when they retire at the end of May.

I was inspired to use the Lift Me Up stamp set from the new 2017 Occasions Catalogue and the matching Up & Away thinlits.  Don’t you just love this balloon!! And look, I used washi tape!!  I always forget to use washi tape but I really love it.  You should see my collection.  lol!!
