CTC120 – Urban Underground

Here we are with another Sunday CASEing the Catty hop for you.  I really love doing these and enjoy the challenge each week to really study the catalogue and work out what to case.

This week, we are casing the Urban Underground section, from pages 46-49 of the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

I don’t have any of the sets in this section, although I did buy the hexagon embossing folder, which I love!!  I was running a bit short of time to create a card this week (knew I should have done it last week when I had heaps of time!!), so I decided to case the superhero card on page 49.

I really love the block layout of this card.  I decided to use the Balloon Adventures stamp set and the gorgeous SAB Carried Away DSP.  Did you know that on the back of the DSP packet, it lists all the co-ordinating colours used?  That way there is no guessing as to which colours were used.  I went with a Night of Navy base and then used Smoky Slate ink for the sentiment.  I was going to stamp and cut out a balloon but the DSP is just so nice, I decided to let it speak for itself.  This was a really quick card to make so great for when you have to make a last minute card.

Time is running out to earn your favourite sale-a-bration products, so place your qualifying $90 order with me today.  Here’s a link to my online store.  Don’t forget SAB ends on 31 March!

Next up on our hop today is fellow Queenslander, Julia!

CTC119 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

I can’t believe that we are halfway through March already!!  Last year seem to go so slow waiting for my trip to New York and now it’s been nearly 5 months since I returned!

It’s finally starting to get a bit cooler here in Queensland.  Bring on Autumn, I say!!

This week we are casing the final section of the Sale-a-bration catalogue, pages 16-19. But don’t worry, Sale-a-bration isn’t finished yet and neither are we!

This section includes the Hey Chick set and I have to admit this is not my favourite set although all the creations I have seen look amazing.  So far, it is actually the most popular SAB stamp set in all the Stampin’ Up! markets.

I decided to case the chicken card on the right on page 15.

I’m having a market stand on the day before Mother’s Day so I’m planning on making a few Mother’s Day cards for all those last minute shoppers.  I went with Rose Red, Pink Pirouette and Sahara Sand as my colours and used the Double Take stamp set for the sentiment.  I kept the same Large Polka Dot embossing folder as the original.

I just love the Make a Medallion SAB stamp set and made my circles.  I am slightly addicted to the layering circle framelits at the moment so this set was perfect for me!  To create the banner, I tried the solid love image in Pink Pirouette but it didn’t stand out very well on the Sahara Sand card stock so I used Rose Red and stamped off first then onto the cardstock which turned out much better.  I then stamped the second thin love without stamping off for a darker colour.

It needed a bit of bling, so I added a few rhinestones to the centre of the medallion.

I was then drawn to the Designer Tee samples on page 18 and decided to case the t-shirt card on the right.

 

I like the sentiments in the Designer Tee stamp set although I don’t have the matching framelits.  I had a flip through my DSP and decided to use the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP stack.  I’ve been practising my watercolour technique and I seem to be getting the knack of it.  Being patient and just waiting for it to dry before adding more colour helps a lot!!

Once again, the layering circle framelits with their complimentary Stitched shapes framelits make an appearance!  I’m pretty happy with how this card turned out!!

Time is running out to earn your favourite sale-a-bration products, so place your qualifying $90 order with me today.  Here’s a link to my online store.  Don’t forget SAB ends on 31 March!

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.

ctc118-fb

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.

ctc118-bec-d

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!!)

 

ctc118-bec-a

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.

ctc118-bec-c

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.

CTC117 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

I hope you are enjoying all the amazing Sale-a-bration stamps and products!  Especially given the fact that they are all free!!

We are caseing the Sale-a-bration catalogue again this week, pages 12-15.

ctc117-fb-2

I was inspired by the card in the middle on page 12, featuring the Tasty Trucks stamp set.

ctc117-bec-c

I decided to use the new Sale-a-bration stamp set, Make a Medallion as I hadn’t inked it up yet.  I also wanted to use the Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper (which is also a new SAB freebie).  I went to the My Creak Ink site and put in Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White and it came up a few suggestions.  I decided to go with Sweet Sugarplum, Mint Macaron, Whisper White and Island Indigo.

I used the same Sparkle embossing folder as it’s cute.  I then stamped the medallions using Island Indigo and Mint Macaron and the sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum.  To cut out the circles, I used the Layering Circle famelits.  I just love the scallops!!

ctc117-bec-a

Here’s a close up of the circle. It’s so sparkly!!

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.

ctc115-bec-b

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!

Next on the hop is the lovely Kelly Kent.
