CTC115 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

I hope you are surviving the heat this weekend!  It’s so hot here, around 40 degrees Celsius!  We are camped out in the kitchen/lounge area with the air conditioning on.

ctc115-fb

We are back to casing the Sale-a-bration catalogue with week, pages 8-12.  This has a couple of my favourite freebies so it was hard to decide which one to do!!  I love the Delicate Details stamp set but apparently so do a few others in the Crew so I went with my other favourite, the Inside the Lines DSP.

ctc115-bec-c

For my first card, I cased the card in the top left corner with the flowers.  I did it very similar although I coloured the flowers in Peeakaboo Peach and used Old Olive patterned DSP.  I think the longest part to this card was cutting out the flowers!  Fussy cutting is not my favourite thing!  Oh, and I used markers to colour the flowers.

ctc115-bec-a

For my second card, I wanted to showcase the floral pattern piece of the DSP.  I used a few elements from a couple of the cards on this page.  I put vellum underneath the Thanks so that it stood out more.  And here’s a sneak peak of an upcoming SAB freebie, the Bermuda Bay glimmer paper!!  It comes in a pack with Mint Macaroon and Sweet Sugarplum in a 6″x6″ size, with 4 pieces of each colour.    This glimmer paper and two more stamp sets will be available on 21 February.

I’m glad I only did a small piece of this dsp.  Every time I coloured in with another watercolour pencils, I found a leaf that I had missed!!  But I think I got them all in the end.

I hope you enjoyed my cards this week.  Next up is the talented Kelly.  I always love to see what she has created!!

CTC114 – Sending Love

ctc_header

Can you believe we are in February already!!  The year is flying past so quick!  This week we are casing the Sending Love section, pages 14-19 of the 2017 Occasions catalogue.

ctc114-fb

Whilst it’s still a while away from Easter, I wanted to use the new Basket Bunch bundle as it’s soooo cute!!  I decided to case the card at the top of page 18.

ctc114-bec-d

I pretty much cased the whole card, except I coloured my flowers with the new water colour pencils for a softer look and I used a different sentiment from the set.

ctc114-bec-b

I just love that sentiment!! It’s so true!!  I love the little solid Cadbury eggs.  I added Stella to the flowers to make them stand out a bit more and added a candy dot to the centre.

ctc114-bec-e

Whilst I was making this one, I had the catalogue open and was inspired to also case the cross card on page 19.

ctc114-bec-c

I was drawn to the simple look with the dsp in the background.  I don’t have this set but I decided to use the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set and the Serene Scenery DSP from the Annual Catalogue.  I embossed in copper and added a strip of copper foil and the Very Vanilla satin ribbon behind the sentiment.

ctc114-bec-a

I’m happy with how it turned out.  Clean and simple!!

Next on the hop is the amazing Rachel Palmieri so make sure you check out her project!

CTC113 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

It was a big week with most kids heading back to school and everyone getting back into “normal” routines.  Even though it was a short week as everyone had the day off to celebrate my birthday!! (or maybe, Australia Day!!)  I had a lovely day celebrating with friends, having a picnic at Wynnum Wading Pools.

This week we are caseing the Sale-a-bration catalogue, and specifically pages 4 to 7.

 

ctc113-fb

I couldn’t decide what to do!!  I eventually decided to case the balloon card at the top of page 7.

ctc113-bec-b

I just love this dsp!!  Isn’t it nice!  And you can get it for free when you spend $90.  But I didn’t use this paper as I’ve just bought the Oh So Succulent stamp set and matching Succulent framelits and I HAD to use it. (You know what I mean!!)

I used the Succulent Garden DSP as the base layer then stamped and cut the flowers.  It’s my 16th wedding anniversary this week, so I used the love sentiment from the stamp set.  I’m sure my husband will appreciate the flowers and glitter on the card!!  lol!

CTC112 – Cupcakes and Carousels

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.

This week, we are casing the Cupcakes and Carousels section, pages 8 – 13 of the Occasions Catalogue.

ctc112-fb

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.

ctc112-bec-b

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.

ctc112-bec

I do love a shaker card!!  You might have noticed that!!

Next on the hop is the lovely Kathryn.

CTC111 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

Don’t you just love freebies!  I certainly do!!  Especially when it comes to stamps and paper!

We are casing the brand new Sale-a-bration catalogue this week.  Don’t you just love the Inside the Lines DSP.  Too die for!!

ctc111-fb

I have decided to case the layout of the square card on page ?

ctc111-bec-b

I kinda made it rather large, just folded a piece of a4 cardstock in half and trimmed it to make a square.  But that’s ok, I wanted to show case the Tasty Treats Specialty DSP.  I couldn’t decide which ice-cream to choose, so I went with them all.  I added a pool party matt as I wanted to make the squares “pop”.  I used the hello stamp from the Vertical Garden stamp set using Watermelon Wonder and shadowed it with Chocolate Chip to match the colours in the DSP.

I layered the banner on a strip of Watermelon Wonder and added a bow using the silver ribbon from the free SAB metallic ribbon combo. Oh, and I used the Banner Triple punch to create the banner.

I even made a matching envelope and STAMPED it!!  Lol, I always forget about the envelope. And you know what, I’ve even sent it out already!!

ctc111-bec-a

I hope you like my card.  Next on the hop is the amazing Mel Pagano.

CTC110 – Party Animal

ctc_header

Welcome back to another year of Caseing the Catty!!  I hope you had a Merry Christmas and a fabulous New Year.  I’m coming to the end of holidays and back at work tomorrow.  I’ve had a lovely time pottering around at home and tidying up my craft room and doing some crafting.

The 2017 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration catalogue started this week and wow, Stampin’ Up! have created two fabulous catalogues!

We are excited to case the Occasions Catalogue this week and the Party Animal section on pages 4-7.

ctc110

I decided to case the card at the top of page 6 using the Big on Birthdays stamp set.  I just love this set!

ctc110-b

I also love the Falling in Love DSP so I decided to combine the two.  To create the scallop edge, I used the Layering Squares framelits and cut out strips and joined them together.  I stamped the sentiment and flowers in Soft Suede and coloured in with Blushing Bridge and Old Olive using the blender pens.  Of course, you need a bit of bling, so I layered the new Very Vanilla satin ribbon and blushing bride sequins.

ctc110-a

I hope you have enjoyed my card!  Next on our hop is my lovely friend, Simone Bartrum.

CTC109 – Case Anything

ctc_header

Can you believe that it is only a week until Christmas!!!  This time next week, we will be sitting in a happy food coma in the air conditioning!!

I’ve still got a little bit of shopping to do and a few more cards to send out and then I’m all prepared!!

This week at Case-ing the Catty, we could choose to case anything we liked in the 2016 Holiday catalogue or the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue.  I really like the This Christmas Specialty DSP (and I still have lots of it left!!) and I still need a few more Christmas cards, so I decided to case the card at the bottom of page 26 on the right hand side.

ctc109-b

You can’t tell from the big picture but this card also uses the Holly Textured Impressions Embossing folder which is just so nice.  I’ve kept my card pretty much the same, I’ve just used different papers of the DSP and I didn’t fussy cut quite as much.  My excuse, it’s hot at home today and I wanted to get into the air-con!!  (Note to self:  must look into air-con for the craft room).ctc109-e

I did put a bit of Stella on the flowers for a bit of bling as well.

I hope you have enjoyed hopping with Case-ing the Catty this year.  I have certainly enjoyed creating for it!!  We will be back on 8 January 2017 and sharing our projects from the new 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a lovely time celebrating with your family.

Next on the hop is the lovely Rachel.
