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.

11 February 2013 – I’m on the banner wagon!

I’ve noticed whilst surfing Pinterest that Banners are becoming quite popular. I have loved them all and wanted to make one.

As you may have noticed, I love my Big Shot!! I’ve used so many dies!! Firstly, I started with Scallop Square Clear Bigz die. I love the fact that you can cut 6 pieces of cardstock in one go! I then used the Rosette XL Bigz die to cut out strips from the lovely new Tea for Two Designer Series Paper to make the rosettes. I used two strips per square. These are so easy to make using my trusty hot glue gun.

I then used the 2 3/8″ Scallop circle punch in So Saffron and then layered with the Circle 2# Original die cut from more of the Tea for Two DSP. I used the Naturals White card stock as the base circle for the letters.

This is the first time that I’ve used my new Typeset Alphabet Bigz die. Using the multipurpose adhesive sheets makes it so easy to attach the letters. I just had to think about which way the letters needed to be cut so that they weren’t backwards!!

I added the Tea Time Trinkets which are very cute!

I hope you like it! I’ve hung it in my craft room above the window that I sit in front of.

27 August 2012 – Sneak Peak 1

Hi all,

I had my catalogue launch on Saturday for the new Stampin’ Up! 2012 – 2013 Catalogue this weekend and it was a great success!!  The girls had a great time and everyone walked away with a prize!  They also got a copy of the new Catalogue and the Seasonal Catalogue.  Yes, there are two catalogues coming out at once!!  So exciting!!!  The Seasonal catty is to die for.  So many amazing stamps and accessories.  Fortunately it goes until the end of January, so I should hopefully be able to get it all!! (But don’t tell my husband!)

This week, I am going to share with you a few of the cards that I made to display at the launch and also what we made.

Here are a couple made with Betsy’s Blossom Stamp set.  It is a cute set with a little bird just asking to be cut out.  This first card was cased here, from Ladybug Designs.  I’ve changed it to the new In-colour, Midnight Muse.  I love the new Bitty Banners Framelits as I am hopeless at cutting even ends on a banner.  I get one end just nice and the other is not.

I found the next card on Pinterest here.  There are so many lovely ideas there.  You can spend more time just looking than actually making!!  This card uses the new Oval Accent Bigz die which is just lovely.  I love all the new dies that are coming out!!
