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!!

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!!

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

CTC67 – Birthday Bouquet

ctc_header

Sunday’s nights seem to come around so quickly these days, don’t they!!  Here we are back again with another Caseing the Catty hop.  This week, we are casing the gorgeous Birthday Bouquet section of the 2016 Occasions catalogue.  This section has some of my favourite stamps and dsp in it so it was hard to choose what to make!!

I decided to case the card on the top left of page 8 of the catalogue.

ctc67-p8

I just love the Birthday Blooms stamp set.  It’s just so pretty!  And the flower just stamps so lovely and is just perfect for colouring.  And it goes perfectly with the Birthday Bouquet DSP which you know I just love too!!

I had a couple of mistakes (sorry, creative moments) when I made this card, so it ended up being square!  But I still like it!!  I like the colours used on the DSP but I decided to try a different colour combo and used Mint Macaron and Delightful Dijon.  I started colouring the darker portion with blender pens and then used the aqua painter for the lighter sections.  I added Gold Wink of Stella in the centre of the larger flower and then as a accent on the smaller flowers.

I always forget to make a envelope when I make a square card so I decided to be organised today and do one and even added a matching liner!!  Am I on fire or what!!  LOL.  And the envelope punch board is on special this week so you need to grab one now!!

Due to my earlier creative moment, I had a base with the cute background paper attached to it, so I decided to cut a flower from the DSP.  Yes, you read that right, I CUT THE DSP!!!! Now fussy cutting is not my favourite thing to do, and I even did the teeny tiny flowers as well.

But I think it was worth cutting out!  It is rather cute.

ESAD Info Holiday 2015

So onto my projects!! I have to admit I was a little stumped on what to make as there are so many lovely products in this catalogue. I simply couldn’t decide which stamp set to use. I decided to try a sketch challenge and found one at Sweet Sunday Sketch that I liked.

SSSC285

You know how sometimes it’s really hard to cut up Designer Series Paper? Well, I’ve been having a bit of trouble cutting into the Home for Christmas DSP! So I’ve bitten the bullet and done it! Using the colour’s of the DSP, I layered up my card in Real Red, Pool Party and Delightful Dijon.

I used the Cozy Christmas stamp set and inked up the stamp using markers. Doesn’t it look fab!!

I also had to create a matching envelope using the Real Red envelope paper. Did you know that you can get 20 sheets for only $10.50. That’s a lot of cute envelopes!!

I just love the Snowflake as well especially with an Iced Rhinestone on it!!

I also liked the slightly larger Season stamp in the set so I made the same card using a different piece of the Home for Christmas DSP. Oh, and isn’t the Stripes Satin ribbon to die for? I wasn’t a fan to start with but it is very luxurious looking. I can see I’m going to use it a lot.

Stampin’ Up! Product List: 

Good things come in small envelopes

I had my new catalogue launch last Saturday!! The ladies and I had a great time of playing with new products, seeing lots of new samples and playing a few games as well.

Here I am, waiting for everyone to arrive!

Here I am, waiting for everyone to arrive!

I decided to do small 3″ x 3″ cards in the new in-colours with a matching envelope using the new in-colour envelope paper for the make and takes.

For each card, I wanted to highlight a new stamp set or product.

So for Delight Dijon, I used the You’re so sweet stamp set and the eye catching Bohemian DSP. We used my favourite marker to stamp technique using Delightful Dijon, Island Indigo and Blackberry Bliss markers and cut it out with the banner framelit from the Mini Treat Bag thinlits.

The You’ve got this stamp set is a really versatile set. It has a great background stamp, a gorgeous flower and sentiments as well. For our second card, we stamped the background in Watermelon Wonder and then the flower in black. Then a piece of whisper white cotton ribbon around the card and a bow to top it off.

Now Mum loves this next in-colour almost as much as she loves crumb cake!! On our Tip Top Taupe sample, we used the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and cut out the basket by hand. We then stamped the flower stems in Cucumber Crush and the flowers in Delightful Dijon. Isn’t this one cute!!

I love the fact that the small DSP stacks are now coming in 6″x6″ size. One this card, I used the Cherry on Top DSP stack. We stamped the sentiment from the Build a Birthday stamp set in Cucumber Crush and then punched the end of the banner using the new banner triple punch. I lurve this new punch!! I can’t cut an even banner with scissors to save myself, so I think this punch was made just for me! We also added a little bit of twine.

On our last card, we used the Sprinkles of Life stamp set again. Did you know that Stampin’ Up! will be donating $3 to Ronald McDonald House Charities for Sprinkles of Life stamp set sold? So you really need to get this set!! We hand cut the ice-cream cone and then used the co-ordinating Tree builder punch to cut out the ice-cream. We stamped in Melon Mambo and added a touch of dazzling diamonds.

I made all the envelope beforehand using the envelope punch board. They were so easy to whip up!! and don’t they look cute!!

If you would like to purchase any of the products used in these cards, just click on the product picture below.

Don’t forget to quote this month’s hostess code, 2MD7BFY2, to receive a pack of 6″x6″ DSP from me.
