This week at Case-ing the Catty, we are up to the Thanks section of the catalogue. There are so many lovely cards to choose from!! You may have come from my very talented friend, Emma, or be starting here with me.
I decided to case the card on the bottom of page 15 which uses the A World of Thanks stamp. I love this stamp!! Did you know that it says thank you in each language of the countries that Stampin’ Up! is in!! Isn’t that great!!!
I decided to be a little different though and use the Bravo stamp set which has lots of congratulations sentiments on it. I laid out the stamps on a piece of card to try and get them all to fit. I then stamped each one in versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. I did it one word at a time so that the ink didn’t dry out.
I then added some stars using the star framelits, in Cherry Cobbler and Gold glimmer paper. I also used the gold thread from the gold baker’s twine behind the stars. Can you believe that I forgot to order the new gold and silver metallic threads!! How on earth did that happen!!
I hope you like my card. I’d love it if you could leave me a comment below!!
The next stop on the hop is my other talented friend, Jessica.
Can you believe that we are up to challenge number 4 already!! Where does the time go!!
So, this week we are casing the Wedding section of the Catalogue. There are lots of yummy products to play with in this section. I decided to case the Congratulations gift box on page 67 of the AU/NZ catalogue.
But, I didn’t have any boxes!! Nooo!!!! How does that happen!!! So I thought I would try it as a card.
I have loved the Banner punch since it’s been available. It is just too cute!! I also used my new favourite DSP, Gold Soiree. I love shiny!!!
I wasn’t sure how to start and finish the baker’s twine so I decided on a little knot and then used a glue dot to hold it down. I also used the Bravo stamp set for the congratulations and got out my gold embossing powder for a bit more bling. It is meant to be a wedding card after all!!
Please leave a comment below and let me know what you think!!
So make sure you join in with the Challenge at http://www.caseingthecatty.blogspot.com.au
You can directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combo, embellishment, just to name a few examples, as a springboard for your own creations. It doesn’t even have to be about scrapbooking, journaling or Project Life. For example, you can use a sketch idea for a card or 3D item.

Hope you can join it!!
Stampin’ Up! products used:
I recently got the new polymer set, Bravo, which has lots of huge stamps in it!! I was browsing Pinterest for a card to do a stamp club to show this great set to the girls, when I came across this one from Debbie Henderson, here.
I was keen to have a go in her colour combo as it had lots of gold and sparkle on it, but when I looked at my stash, I didn’t have any gold foil sheets (how does that happen!!). So then I thought I would try a colour combo inspired by the latest addition to my washi tape collection, Beach House, which is Crushed Curry, Pool Party and Real Red.
It was quite interesting to work out how to get the angles on the card, but I just cut 2 pieces the same size and then laid them on top of the base piece. I then played around with the layout and once I was happy, I used a ruler and pen and drew a line where the edge of the card was on the top layer, then did the same on the second layer. I cut them out with my paper trimmer and had to work out which piece went where!! We certainly had fun with this part at stamp club!! One of the girls had to put her cut off bits back around the card so she could work out which way was up!!
We then used the paper piercing tool and went around the edges of the card and the first layer. I always forget how nice this looks until I do it again!
I love the banner framelits! I am really bad at cutting banners evenly, so I was ecstatic when Stampin’ Up! brought out these framelits.
