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!!

CTC73 – Botanical Gardens

ctc_header

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.

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!!

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!

12 Weeks of Christmas – Week 7

12 weeks w7

Christmas is coming up so quickly!! Can you believe that it’s only 5 weeks to go!! And I haven’t started my Christmas shopping yet!!

This week, I am celebrating the Wonderland stamp set. I love the trees, and the sentiments on this set. I’m a little unsure of what to do with the antlers though!!

For my first card, I used the matching Winter Wonderland Specialty DSP. This is such a lovely paper to use. It’s very smooth and shiny and feels very luxurious.

I used the Thick Whisper White cardstock as my base. As the name suggests, it’s a bit thicker than the standard Whisper White and it makes a nice base to your cards. I stamped the trees in Memento Black ink and then stamped my sentiment in versamark and embossed it in gold embossing powder. I added a gold doily for some extra bling.

On my second card, I used the Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack. I love it!! I used glue dots to attach it to the Basic Black base then added sequins over the top to hide the glue dots. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink, then punched it out using my 2 1/2″ circle punch. Then I embossed the branches in gold embossing powder. I’ve been practicing my swirls with gold thread and I’m quite happy how this one turned out!!

It’s a Pennsationals Colour Challenge

penns blog hop button

We are back with another blog hop with my amazing team, the Pennsationals!! You may have come from the lovely Emma at Vintage Graffiti or be starting the hop here with me.

This time, we are doing a colour challenge and I have to say, it was a bit of a challenge for me!! I was quite stumped for a while.

penns colour hop button

But then I found my mojo and got going!! I used the Friendly Wishes stamp set and coloured it with the Pacific Point and Blackberry Bliss markers. I then used a combination of circle punches and framelits to create the layers around the sentiment.

I used the Go Wild DSP stack (have you seen this, it’s great if you love animal prints!!) to add a some detail in the background. I added a silver layer to the background and used the silver satin ribbon for the final touch.

I hope you like my card for the hop today. Please leave me a comment and let me know!!

Next on the hop is my lovely upline, Tracy.

I just love my team and the support that we give each other. We have a facebook group to keep in touch as we are spread out over a few states, which makes it easier to feel a part of the team. We love to share our latest projects with each other, and asking questions when we need help, either with a technique or when it comes to our Stampin’ Up! business. One of the things I love the most is when we can get together at Stampin’ Up! events which is actually happening in less than 5 weeks time at the very first Onstage Local event in Melbourne. I can’t wait to catch up with the girls in person!! If you would love to be a part of the team, all you need to do is join up with me!! Just go here, and select your starter kit today! If you want to come to Onstage Local, you need to be a demonstrator, so what are you waiting for! LOL

We have just a short hop today. If you get lost on the hop, here is the list of participants.

CTC45 – It’s a whole lot of lovely going on

At CASE-ing the Catty this week, we are sharing projects inspired by the Hostess section of the catalogue. There are 5 lovely exclusive hostess stamp sets which you can only earn if you host a workshop.

I just love the A Whole lot of Lovely stamp set. It’s probably my favourite of the 5 sets, although closely followed by the Floral Wings set as well. Seeing as there was only 1 sample in the catalogue, I decided to case another card from the Catalogue from page 109.

p109

Now I will admit, it’s rather loosely based on this card!!.

So to get started, I decided to crack open my 2014-2016 In Color Designer Washi Tape. Now I love washi tape and I have nearly all that Stampin’ Up! have come out with but I rarely use it!! It does look lovely on my tape holder but it would be better if I actually used it!! So I used some today. Only 4.5 metres left to go. hehe

I love using the marker technique on stamps so the Thank You stamp in this set is just perfect for that. And I think it looks rather stunning, if I say so myself!! To co-ordinate with the washi tape, I used Lost Lagoon, Taneglo Twist, Mossy Meadow and Hello Honey.

I couldn’t decide whether or not to use the smaller flower so I did a card with each. I think I prefer the one without but they both look nice. What’s your choice?

14 October 2011 – Pussy Cats and Boxes

I thought it was high time I shared a photo with you of my new babies!!  At the start of September, my husband and I adopted two kittens from Little Paws Kitten Rescue.  Shadow and Jaster are about 8 months old and getting bigger every day.  They love helping in my craft room as well as playing in the paper and boxes that my orders come in.  They have also overtaken my craft chair, so now I sit on the uncomfortable office chair and they have the one with a pillow.  If I’m not watching, I lose the office chair as well!!!

Shadow (left) and Jaster - Brotherly love

At the Stampin’ Up! convention earlier this year, Shelli Gardner, the co-founder, demonstrated a really cute box using the cardboard circle from a box of glue dots.  Well, there are 300 glue dots in a box, and it’s taken me until now to use them up!!

How cute is that!!

Now to find someone with an upcoming special birthday to give it too!!  And put something special in it!!
