CTC193 – Graceful Glass


It was so nice this morning to wake up to the sound of rain on the roof.  We desperately need rain as everything is so dry and brown.  Hopefully we will get a little more soon!

This week at CTC we are casing the Graceful Glass section of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue, pages 164-179.


I actually didn’t get past the very first page!  I love the Painted Glass stamp set and the gorgeous co-ordinating designer vellum.

I decided to case the pink card on the left of page 164.


I used one of the other prints from the vellum and coloured it using Stampin’ Blends in Old Olive, Lovely Lipstick, Highland Heather and Rich Razzleberry.  When attaching to the card base (which is Highland Heather), I put a piece of white cardstock underneath so that the brightness of the colours would show through.  I used a few glue dots under the diamonds so that you can’t see the adhesive.

I then stamped the circle in Sahara Sand and punched out using the 2 1/2″ circle punch.  I then stamped the sentiment in Memento Black over the top.  I then used some black mini sequins under the circle and added a few flowers coloured in Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends.  I added a bit of Stella for a bit of bling.


I hope you enjoy my card this week!

Next up is Peta, I can’t wait to see what she has created.

CTC149 – Year of Cheer

I had a lovely day of crafting on Saturday and made lots of cards!  It’s always nice to play in the craft room knowing all the jobs are done and have a clear conscience!!

This week we are casing the Year of Cheer suite, pages 36 -47, of the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

There are so many lovely stamps and papers in this section and I have lots of these goodies that I haven’t had much opportunity to play with.  I decided to case the card on page 36 which uses the gorgeous Winter Wonder Textured Impressions embossing folder.

I decided to go with a gold theme, although I kept it pretty similar to the original.  Have you seen the Year of Cheer washi tape?  It’s so lovely.  I’ve used the one with a few colours in it.

The sentiment comes from the Christmas Happiness stamp set and I’ve embossed it in gold.  I punched a circle from the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP and another from the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate.  Make sure when you use the acetate that you peel off the protective layer of film.  It makes it look much better without it!

Of course, I used gold mini sequins.

I love how this has turned out!!

Next up is the lovely Rachel.

CTC73 – Botanical Gardens


Welcome to this week’s Caseing the Catty blog hop.  We are casing the Botantical Gardens section of the Occasions catalogue from pages 26-29.

ctc 73

I thought I would try a different colour combination for my card.  I’m casing the thanks card on page 26.  Did you know that you can use this stamp set to create your own dsp?



So I stamped away with Watermelon Wonder, So Saffron, Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride and created my own background.  I created my own washi tape by using one of the stamps in the set and adding it to the edges of the circle.  I have recently discovered the Suite Sayings stamp set and I decided to use one of the sentiments stamps as I have a special friend in mind for this card.



I also love a good set of splodge stamps as well, although I don’t use them as often as I should!!  The Timeless Texture stamp set has fabulous splodges in it!!  For this card, I am casing the gift bag on page 29.


For this one, I pretty much only changed the colours and went with Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey and Watermelon Wonder.  I have to say I have so much trouble making my twine look like random swirls!!  It’s harder than it looks!!



I hope you have enjoyed my cards this week and it inspires you to join in with Caseing the Catty this month.  As always, we have a monthly challenge that you can join in and show us what you have cased from the catalogue.  Click here to go to the linky.

12 Weeks of Christmas – Week 11

12 weeks w11

When I saw this bundle, I was so excited!! Aren’t these edgelits gorgeous!!

I was inspired for this week’s card by Paula Dobson, with her entry for Global Design Project #GDP004. I just love the layers of the edgelits on the circle.

I also wanted to use the black glimmer paper which is so pretty, so I used it as the base of my circle. Of course the trees must be green so I decided to use Wild Wasabi and to make it the base of the card. Of course the sleigh must be on silver glimmer paper, so I not only cut the sleigh and horse on silver glimmer paper but I added a layer of silver glimmer paper. So my card is soooo sparkly!! Love! I even did a double layer of whisper white! Doesn’t it look lovely!
