Well, here you are back at me again!! It’s our last week at Caseing the Catty for the year and we are caseing each other this week!! I’m caseing my talented friend, and new Artisan Design Team member, Jessica at The Paper Caper.
Jess has so many lovely projects that she has done during her time at CTC that it was a bit hard to choose. I decided to case a box that she had made showcasing the hostess set, A Whole Lot of Lovely. You can see her original post here.
Isn’t it pretty? I decided to use the English Garden DSP for the background of the box. Isn’t it lovely? I haven’t used it a lot but I do love it. (Note to self to use more often). It’s so easy to create a box using the gift box punch board. A few scores and quick folds and your project is almost done.
I added some striped gold vellum like Jess, then added a strip of Vanilla ribbon and some blushing bride sequins. I managed to find some filter sheets and created my flower using the Floral Frames Collection framelits. I even spritzed them with some blushing bride ink and isocol and helped the drying process along with my heat gun. To make the flower fit on the box, I scrunched the middle and quickly added some dimensionals to the back of the circle and stuck them together.
And voila, a box is made!!
I hope you have enjoyed my box this week. Next on the hop is my lovely friend, Jessica who is caseing Tricia this week.
Stampin’ Up! Product List
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.
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?
So, how do you earn this gorgeous set? Simply host a workshop or place a qualifying order and earn Stampin’ Rewards to purchase the exclusive hostess sets or any other products from the Annual catalogue or Holiday/Occasions catalogues. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0408 193 792 to lock in a date for your workshop.
Now to continue the hop, visit Jessica at The Paper Caper to see what gorgeousness she has created this week.
Stampin’ Up! Product List
Seeing as I have time to play in my craft room this week, I decided to try out a few challenges. You may have noticed that I like to try the Mojo Monday sketches. I thought this week’s sketch was interesting and decided to give it a go.
Here is the Sketch. And here is the link to the challenge.
I’ve recently purchased the Pretty Petals DSP stack and it’s so pretty. I decided to base my colours around this stack, so I went with a base of Mint Macaron and then a layer of Calypso Coral before the DSP. I cut out a silver glimmer paper circle using two circle framelits. Have I ever mentioned that I love bling? No? Well I love it!!! lol.
I think this hostess set, A Whole Lot of Lovely, is my favourite ever. And this Thank You stamp is just lovely. I used my Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral markers to ink it up. To create the banner, I just used the reverse side of the DSP. Don’t you just love that!!
Here’s my card.
