CTC234 – Pressed Petals

Welcome to a fun week at Caseing the Catty!! We are trying a few different challenges and this week, we are casing the colour scheme from the gorgeous Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.

This DSP is just so pretty and I love all the colours together.

Whenever I do a colour challenge, I always get out the cardstock in all the colours and see what inspires me. I didn’t want to use the Pressed Petals DSP (well, actually I did but I wanted to try something different).

I just got the Band Together stamp set and the co-ordinating Detailed bands dies. This stamp set features a really large flower which is great for colouring. I fussy cut my flower and coloured with Old Olive and Rococo Rose blends.

I layered up with Crumb Cake, Night of Navy and embossed a piece of Pear Pizzazz with the 3d Layered Leaves embossing folder. I cut the band in Daffodil Delight. The centre piece does come out but I needed something to stamp the sentiment on.

Next up is my lovely friend across the ocean, Sandra.

We would love to see what you create with this colour combo! Share it over on at our Facebook Group.

Happy Stamping

CTC233 – Casing a Layout

Oh it’s a wonderful, drizzly rainy day today! A rainy day is the perfect craft day. Who am I kidding, any day is a perfect craft day!

We are trying a few different challenges at CTC and this week we are casing layouts on page 36. There are 8 different layouts on this page and you can case any one of them.

I decided to case the layout on the right with the three layers of paper.

I just received the Stitched Lace die and wanted to use it straight away!! I cut out three pieces in Pretty Peacock, Pool Party and Coastal Cabana. I used my new Take Your Pick Die Brush tip to get the little pieces stuck in the die out. I was really impressed at how well it worked. I still had to poke out a few pieces but much better than my old tool.

The Detailed Bands dies also includes a couple of great shapes, perfect for sentiments. I cut one out in Pretty Peacock and embossed the sentiment from the Band Together in white.

I can’t wait to play further with these dies!

Next up is fellow kitty lover, Peta!

We would love to see which layout you case from this page. Make sure you share your creations with us on our Facebook group.

Happy Stamping
