CTC236 – Love, Thanks and Support

Welcome to another week of Caseing the Catty. It’s a wonderful rainy day today, just perfect for crafting!! Who am I kidding, any weather is good for crafting!!

This week, we are casing the Love, Thanks & Support section, pages 72-97 of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue.

There’s lots of choose from! I didn’t get too far in and went with a card on page 79.

This layout is very easy to duplicate. I decided to use the Bird Ballad DSP instead of a stamped image as the birds on the paper are just too cute. (And I didn’t want to do any fussy cutting either!). I layered the dsp with Pool Party cardstock. I cut a frame using the Layering Squares dies in Daffodil Delight cardstock. I used the Foam Adhesive Strips to lift up the frame.

I cut a strip of vellum cardstock and used the Triple Banner punch to create a banner. I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay. The sentiment is from the Incredible Like You stamp set, which I discovered has retired after I had written my post!

I added a bow using the Scalloped Lace Trim which is just so pretty.

Next up is the lovely Tina. I can’t wait to see what she has created.

We would love to see your creation from this section. Just add it over on our Facebook page.

Happy Stamping

I’m excited to back with Colour Inkspiration Challenges this week!

We have such a lovely, bright combo to share with you. Lovely Lipstick, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green.

To create my cards for CI challenges, I always start by getting out the cardstock in the challenge colours. I then browse through my stamp sets to see what inspires me. I keep my stamp sets in alphabetical order and as you will be able to tell, I didn’t get very far this time!! I went with Accented Blooms as I love colouring the flowers.

I coloured the greenery using a blender pen and Granny Apple Green ink. I then coloured the flowers using the Lovely Lipstick and Daffodil Delight blends. I didn’t actually blend the colours but used the light and dark pens to create different coloured flowers.

To add a bit of texture, I used the Subtle embossing folder on the Daffodil Delight layer. I also tied a knot in a piece of Granny Apple Green textured weave ribbon across the bottom of the card.

Next up is the lovely Jackie.

We can’t wait to see what you create using these colours, so please add your creation to our Facebook group.

CTC215 – How Sweet it is

Welcome to another exciting week at Caseing the Catty. We are casing the How Sweet it is section, pages 14-23 of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.

I really love the big colouring stamp sets that SU have been bringing out in the last couple of catalogues, like the Birthday Sentiments set on page 19. I have case the colours from the card on page 19 and the layout from the small card on page 18.

I stamped the main image in Merry Merlot and then coloured the flowers using blender pens in Petal Pink, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron.

Instead of ribbon, I used a piece of Floral Romance Specialty DSP behind the image. I stamped the Happy from the Birthday Statements stamp set in Petal Pink and punched out with the Classic Label punch.

Next up is the lovely Julia.   

We hope you can share your creation with us at our Facebook Group.
