CTC79 – Projects or Kits


Can you believe that we are casing the last part of the 2016 Occasions Catalogue!!  Hasn’t it been a fun journey!!

So the last section is 3d projects & kits.  One of the things I love about Caseing The Catty is really taking a good look at the amazing projects created by the artists at Stampin’ Up! If you are stuck for mojo just pick up your catalogue and be inspired!!

I was inspired this week by the bag on the right on page 26 using the Botanical Gardens DSP.


But I didn’t have any small brown bags to use but I did have the Petite Café Gift bags in my stash.  I love how you can stamp on the DSP to add a little more detail and a more personalised feel to the paper.  I then created the tag using the Ornate tag topper punch and stamped it using the Suite Sayings stamp set.  This is a really versatile set and I’m glad to see that it is hanging around.

I then created the flower and leaves using the Botanical Builder framlits.  A quick sponge of Cajun Craze in the centre and two little black centres on top of each other, oh and of course a Wink of Stella, and voila, a gorgeous flower for my tag!!

I used a clothespin and put a little bit of washi tape on it. The tag is only held on using the clothespin, so the lucky recipient can pass on the love!!


Here’s a close up of the detail on the flower.  You can almost see Stella!!

CTC77 – Going Places



Firstly, Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing mum’s out there!  I spent the day with my mum visiting a craft market, then having lunch at Tamborine Mountain.  Love you, Mum!!

So this week, we are casing the Going Places Section of the Occasions catalogue, pages 38-49.  I don’t have many of the sets in the section, so I decided to case the layout of a card for my inspiration.  I used the Bear card on page 40 on the left hand side.


I love the stripes in the Birthday Bouquet DSP, even if it has got that gorgeous floral on the other side.  I didn’t distress the paper but I did do paper piercing around the edge.  I love that extra detail.  I then used the Rose Garden thinlits and cut out the single flower, a smaller flower and two of the petals.  I played around for a while to get a layout that I liked, then I glued them all down with my favourite glue, the fine tip glue pen.  I added a Wink of Stella to the flower but it’s a bit hard to see in the photo.  I used the Suite Sayings stamp set for the sentiment (love this set!!).


Here is a closer view of the flowers.


I hope you were inspired by my card to use the layouts in the catalogues to create your cards!!

CTC73 – Botanical Gardens


Welcome to this week’s Caseing the Catty blog hop.  We are casing the Botantical Gardens section of the Occasions catalogue from pages 26-29.

I thought I would try a different colour combination for my card.  I’m casing the thanks card on page 26.  Did you know that you can use this stamp set to create your own dsp?



So I stamped away with Watermelon Wonder, So Saffron, Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride and created my own background.  I created my own washi tape by using one of the stamps in the set and adding it to the edges of the circle.  I have recently discovered the Suite Sayings stamp set and I decided to use one of the sentiments stamps as I have a special friend in mind for this card.



I also love a good set of splodge stamps as well, although I don’t use them as often as I should!!  The Timeless Texture stamp set has fabulous splodges in it!!  For this card, I am casing the gift bag on page 29.


For this one, I pretty much only changed the colours and went with Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey and Watermelon Wonder.  I have to say I have so much trouble making my twine look like random swirls!!  It’s harder than it looks!!



I hope you have enjoyed my cards this week and it inspires you to join in with Caseing the Catty this month.  As always, we have a monthly challenge that you can join in and show us what you have cased from the catalogue.  Click here to go to the linky.
