CTC55 – Catty Section – Into the Woods

I am really enjoying caseing the 2015 Holiday catalogue this year. There are so many lovely projects to choose from!!

This week at Caseing the Catty we are up to the Into the Woods section. I don’t have many of the sets in this section but one of my favourite sets of the whole catalogue is Lighthearted Leaves. I have seen so many lovely cards done using this set. So, of course, it was the stamp set of choice this week.

I am caseing the sponged card on page 44 of the catty.

This was such an easy card to make. I made a template of the leaf and then sponged with the lighter colour. This is a polymer set which made it so easy to stamp the second image over the top.

I’ve gone with a different colour theme for the two cards I made. One combo of Soft Sky and Marina Mist and the other Perfect Plum and Blackberry Bliss. I added a touch of bling by using some silver thread. I don’t seem to have the knack of artistically arranging twine or thread, but you get the idea!!

I used the washi tape punch and the thanks sentiment from the Cottage Greetings stamp set.

For the second card, I used the Lots of Labels framelits and trimmed it down and the happy birthday stamp from the Cottage Greetings set.

I’m very happy with the end result!! I might have to do this with some more sets!!

CTC37 – There’s nothing like a new baby

This week at Case-ing the Catty,we are celebrating the baby section of the catalogue. Now there’s nothing like a new baby, but this week, there’s nothing baby about my cards!!

I don’t have kids and my nieces are well past being babies, so I only have one baby set for when a baby card is needed. Although, the Baby Project Life kits are sooo cute, it makes me almost want to borrow a baby for some cute pics!!

I decided to case the card on Page 36, on the right hand side sitting on the crushed curry dsp, of the Catalogue.

I used the I think you’re great stamp set (which I got for free at convention!!) for the background stamp. I decided to use the note cards, which I often forget are in the catalogue. You can get a set of 20 cards and envelopes for only $10.50, which is a great price. Did you know that works out to be 52 cents for a card and envelope!! They come in Whisper White or Crumb Cake.

I couldn’t decide which colour to use, so I decided to use the new In-Colours, Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Delightful Dijon and Cucumber Crush. Yes, I know I didn’t use Tip Top Taupe, but I only had 4 cards left!

I’ve been dying to use the new Metallic foil doilies, which is what made me choose this card to case. Oh, and my Metallic thread finally arrived yesterday, so I had to add a bit of that too.

I used the envelope liners framelit to cut out the In-Colour envelope paper. How cute do they look!!!
