CTC158 – It’s my age page!

ctc_header

I hope you are going well with your Christmas shopping.  I finished mine this week!  Woo hoo!! Well, I might get my husband a couple of other little things, but I’ve got all the main shopping done.

We are having a fun challenge this week at Caseing the Catty.  Our challenge is to case a project from the page that is your age (or the age you would like to be!).

So I’m casing a project from page 43 of the 2017 Holiday catalogue.  I went with the card on the top left corner.

I liked the idea of stamping on the background with a piece of vellum over the top.  I used the Christmas Happiness stamp set and stamped the branch in Wild Wasabi.  I then cut out a piece of vellum and embossed the sentiment from Festive Phrases in gold embossing powder.

I added a square of whisper white behind the sentiment so that you could see it clearly.  I then added a Green sprig and tied it with gold ribbon.  It’s a fairly simple card but I’m happy with how it came out!

CTC149 – Year of Cheer

I had a lovely day of crafting on Saturday and made lots of cards!  It’s always nice to play in the craft room knowing all the jobs are done and have a clear conscience!!

This week we are casing the Year of Cheer suite, pages 36 -47, of the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

There are so many lovely stamps and papers in this section and I have lots of these goodies that I haven’t had much opportunity to play with.  I decided to case the card on page 36 which uses the gorgeous Winter Wonder Textured Impressions embossing folder.

I decided to go with a gold theme, although I kept it pretty similar to the original.  Have you seen the Year of Cheer washi tape?  It’s so lovely.  I’ve used the one with a few colours in it.

The sentiment comes from the Christmas Happiness stamp set and I’ve embossed it in gold.  I punched a circle from the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP and another from the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate.  Make sure when you use the acetate that you peel off the protective layer of film.  It makes it look much better without it!

Of course, I used gold mini sequins.

I love how this has turned out!!

Next up is the lovely Rachel.

CTC144 – Quilted Christmas

Firstly, Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s!!  I had afternoon tea with my parents today which was lovely.

So how exciting is this week!!  We have our first CTC hop with the 2017 Holiday Catalogue!!!  We are caseing the Quilted Christmas section, pages 4-9.

Isn’t the Quilted Christmas bundle amazing?!  But I haven’t used it today for my card.  I decided to case the box on page 9 (on the right) featuring the Good Tidings stamp set.

I stamped the sentiment in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake paper (don’t you use Kraft was still available!).  I then created a banner using the Quilted Christmas DSP stack and a piece of Real Red cardstock.

I used the new Everyday Label punch and cut out one piece in Garden Green and turned it portrait and another in Whisper White.  I stamped the holly and sentiment (which comes from Christmas Happiness stamp set) in Garden Green and Real Red.  I used the fine tip glue pen to add shine to the holly berries.  I also stamped and fussy cut a holly leaf out as well.

For a touch of bling, I added some mini gold sequins.  And have you noticed the vintage crochet trim?  It’s so lovely!!

I hope you enjoy the cards in this week’s hop!  Next up is Monique with her gorgeous project.

When I am in my craft room, my kitty, Jaster, often sits with me.  He actually has his own chair (well we share them depending which one he is on!)  Last week, Shadow (AKA Mr Fatty) decided he was lonely and joined us as well.  Shame there wasn’t room for me to sit at my desk!!

Happy Stamping
