CTC258 – Wrapped in Plaid

It’s been a very hot couple of days in Queensland but fortunately it’s gone back to normal warm December weather today. Thank goodness!!

I had a fun Friday doing a Miss Biscuit cookie course. I learnt how to ice sugar cookies in 7 Christmas designs. The room smelt like gingerbread all day!!

This week, we are casing the Wrapped in Plaid suite, pages 12-17 of the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.

I love the Wrapped in Plaid suite, and the gorgeous DSP. When flipping through the pages, I decided to case one of the cards on page 15 which uses the Peaceful Boughs Bundle.

I decided to keep the branches green and went with Pear Pizzazz. The base of my card is Cherry Cobbler as I like the traditional red/green Christmas combo. I then stamped sentiment in Cherry Cobbler and cut it out using the Beautiful Boughs die. I cut out the branches with a piece of retired Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.

I added a few snowflakes from the Snowflake Sequins for a little more sparkle.

Next up is the lovely Michelle.

We would love to see your creations from this section. Please share it over on at our Facebook group.

Merry Christmas and Happy Stamping

CTC256 – It’s a Christmas Twist

Welcome to a fun week of Caseing the Catty!! I haven’t had a chance to join in with the last couple of challenges as it’s that busy time of year!! Last weekend, I went to Sydney for Onstage and was able to catch up with my team. I was lucky to attend Centrestage with my upline and a couple of my stamping friends.

We are trying a different challenge this week and casing an Annual Catalogue layout and give it a Holiday Twist.

It’s always nice to go back through the Annual Catalogue and look closely at all the gorgeous projects. I didn’t get too far in and went with a layout on page 31.

I like the watercoloured background so I used a piece of shimmery white cardstock and did a wash of Garden Green. Once it was dry, I attached to the Real Red card. I really like the Peaceful Boughs stamp set and the sentiment, which I cut out using the Beautiful Boughs dies.

The Real Red ruched ribbon is lovely and works perfectly behind the sentiment. I cut out a few branches and added Ice glitter to the tips.

Next up is the lovely Judy, who I got to hug last week!!

We would love to see your creation casing an Annual Catalogue project and giving a holiday twist over on at our Facebook group.
