CTC155 – Case Gift Packaging

ctc_header

I’ve had a lovely week of holidays but sadly I’m back at work tomorrow.  But counting down to the next lot of holidays in only 5 weeks!!

This week at Caseing the Catty, we are casing Gift Packaging from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue and the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

I didn’t actually go too far to be inspired.  Just as far as the cover of the 2017 Holiday catalogue, in fact!

I liked the acetate box on the right hand side of the cover, featuring the Cheery Chirps stamp set.

Once I started making this and taking a closer look at the project, I realised how much detail is on it.

I wanted to use my new Stampin’ Blends to colour the images, so I went with the colours that are available in the pens like Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler.

So firstly, I cut out a piece of Old Olive cardstock to fit the front of the box and embossed it with the Quilt Top Embossing Folder.

The leaves around the bird are actually taken from the other bird stamp in the set.  I stamped it in Memento Black and coloured with the Old Olive Stampin’ blends and fussy cut out.

I cut out a circle from the Stitched Shapes framelits and stamped and coloured the bird.  I then used the fine tip glue pen to attach the leaves to the circle.  I used a piece of a doily behind the circle.

Then there’s a Pool Party Everyday Label punch behind the circle.

So then I cut out a piece of Cherry Cobbler and trimmed the corners to create a tag.  I cut a Silver foil snowflake in half and attached behind the tag.  I then attached the whole lot to the embossed Old Olive piece.

I added a silver tinsel bow for a bit of bling.

CTC154 – Case a Colouring Project

It’s been an exciting, but full-on weekend!!  I’ve been to the Onstage Local event in Melbourne with my fellow demonstrators!  Onstage is held every 6 months with an Onstage Live event for 3 days (which is in Utah this time), and local events held throughout the world on the same weekend.  Oh and it’s only for demonstrators, so if you want to come in April 2018, you’ll need to join up and become a demo!!

I also had the privilege of being asked to do a presentation of a bundle of products that are coming out for the 2018 Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues.  You’ll have to wait until Tuesday to check them out!!

So this week, we are casing a Colouring Project from either the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue or the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  I decided to go with the Annual Catalogue since it’s been a while that I had a look through it.

With the arrival of the Stampin’ Blends, I also purchased a few of the colouring stamp sets.  I decided this week to case the Hey You card, on the left on page 169 but I decided to use the other stamp in the set, the Good Vibes stamp.

I stamped firstly on Whisper White thick A4 cardstock, using Memento Black ink.  I started off by colouring the word, Good Vibes using the Bermuda Bay pens as that’s one of my favourite colours!  I then coloured the flowers in all the other colours!  I like bright, what can I say!!

I then embossing a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock using the Layered Leaves embossing folder like the sample.  I added a piece of Pear Pizzaza shimmer ribbon and a bow.  I was actually surprised at how quickly this card came together.

Next up on the hop is the lovely Angela.

I’m off to bed now as I’m stuffed from such a big weekend!!

Happy Stamping
