I look forward each week to seeing what we are doing at Caseing the Catty. This week, we are being inspired by the colour combination on page 9 of the 2015 Holiday catalogue, featuring Mossy Meadow, Pool Party and Real Red.
I was also inspired by the card on page 11 showcasing the Hearth & Home Thinlits die and the Happy Scenes Stamp set.
To suit our colour theme, I used a Mossy Meadow base and layered it up with Whisper White and Real Red. I used the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper from the main catalogue for something different. (Also, it had Real Red in it too!!)
To create the stars in the sky, I used the snow flake stamp from the Happy Scenes stamp set and inked it with Pool Party. I then stamped it off before stamping onto the main piece so that it would be more subtle.
Without further ado, here it is!!
I hope you like it!! I’m quite happy with it!!
To continue on the hop this week, please visit my lovely up-upline and friend, Simone Bartrum. If you happen to get lost on the hop, the main blog link is here.
Happy Christmas Stamping!!
Stampin’ Up! Product List
From Christmas cards, that is!!!!
I have been making lots of Christmassy things for ages and I am slightly over it!! I have a dear friend having a birthday this week, so I wanted to make a special card for her. I have to say I really enjoyed making something else!!
I wanted to use the Corner Garden stamp set and my blendabilities. Honestly, it’s been ages since I used them!!
So a quick search on Pinterest found this lovely card by It’s a Stamp Thing. I love the way she uses only a portion of the stamp.
As my friend loves anything purple, I had to use Blackberry Bliss. This is such a gorgeous deep purple. The photos definitely don’t do it justice. I embossed the crumb cake cardstock with white embossing powder. This looked lovely all on it’s own. I will have to try it with coloured cardstock as well. I then coloured it with Old Olive for the leaves, and then Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry and Night of Navy.
I hope she likes it!!

I have to confess that I love the new moustache framelit and matching stamp set!! When I first saw it, I thought it was very cute but I didn’t need it. But I kept looking at it and finally decided to bite the bullet and get it. And at only $13.95 for the framelit, you can’t really go wrong!!
I thought it would make a great card for Father’s Day for stamp club so I did a quick search on Pinterest and found a great card by Rose Castillo here.
I only made a couple of changes by punching out the sentiment with the Word Window punch and mounting it on the Modern label punch. I love the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamps set as they all fit into the word window punch and there are lots to choose from. A couple of the ladies used the Happy Birthday stamp instead.
And here’s a closer look at the mo.
I hope you like it!! And I hope Dad and Pop don’t look here before Father’s Day!! I think I’m pretty safe!!

Where is the year going!!! It seems to be flying past already!!
We had stamp club on the weekend and I wanted to share a project using the gorgeous Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. I really love this DSP and wanted to show how it could be used in a non-christmassy way. I had not used all the shimmery paper in the pack (shock, horror, I know!!), so I decided to use that one as the background.
I was inspired by Dani Dziama, here. I loved her card, especially with the doily.
I gave the girls a sneaky peak at a new product being featured in the Sale-a-bration catalogue, the mini banner punch!! Is that not the cutest punch you’ve ever seen!! I am hopeless at making the ends of banners even so this is perfect for me.
