Happy Birthday to Mr Paper and Stamp Addict!

Now don’t panic, yes, I’m posting on a week day!! I went to a concert in Brisbane last night (saw Pentatonix’s, they were amazing!!) and I’ve got the day off work today as I had such a late night. I slept in to 8am!! I can’t remember when I slept that late!

It’s Mr Paper and Stamp Addict’s birthday tomorrow so I thought I would share his card with you. And he doesn’t read my blog so I think I’m safe and won’t spoil the surprise!

As you may have noticed, I kinda like the Country Club DSP! It’s the perfect colours for manly cards.

I’ve used Night of Navy as the base, and a piece of the Garden Green tartan with a layer of Whisper White underneath to make it stand out.

My other new favourite is the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I’ve cut one in Night of Navy and in Whisper White. I’ve stamped the sentiment in Garden Green and it’s from the Bonanza Buddies stamp set.

This is a quick and easy card to create, yet looks stunning. I hope he likes it!

Don’t forget if you order $90 worth of goodies until the end of March, you can earn a Sale-a-bration item for free!! There are so many products to choose from!

CTC263 – Week 1 – Kerchief Card Kit

Welcome to another fun week at Caseing the Catty!! I hope you have had a great week. I had to finish work early on Thursday so that I could get home before the roads flooded. Lucky I did, as I don’t think I would have made it through if I had left it any later in the day. It was such a shame to have to leave work early (NOT!!) so I spent the afternoon at home crafting and listening to the rain on the roof. Perfect afternoon!!

So since that wonderful rain, it has been so hot and humid!! I worked up a sweat making my card today. Eww!

We are casing the colours from the Kerchief Card Kit which is in the Sale-a-bration Catalogue. The colours you can choose from are: Balmy Blue, Coastal Cabana, Early Espresso, Gold, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Petal Pink, Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade and White.

I have decided to go with Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Early Espresso and White.

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, my dad is an avid golfer, so the Country Club Suite is perfect for him. Now I know that Father’s Day is a long way off for us in Australia but I had to use the banner stamp and the laurel die!!

I started with the Absolutely Argyle 3d embossing folder in Night of Navy and then cut out a rectangle from the Stitched so Sweetly dies. These would have to be my favourite dies at the moment. (Well until I use the next set!!) Then another rectangle in Whisper White from the Stitched Rectangle dies.

I love that the Golf Club dies includes 2 club dies which I cut out in Early Espresso. I also cut out the laurel and the banner.

I think Dad is going to love these cards using this set!! Is it September yet?

My kitties were having a busy day and wanted to say hi.

This is Jaster, keeping in with our colour theme
Whilst Jaster was looking cute, Shadow wanted his belly rubbed! Crazy boy!

Next up is the lovely Julia, I can’t wait to see what she has created.

If you want to see what the design team creates, we have a photo album called CI71 Design Team Inspiration in our Facebook Group, which you can see here.

We have such a pretty challenge photo this week!! Don’t you just want to go inside that shop!

I recently got the Birthday Jubilee Bundle which includes the Birthday Jubilee stamp set and the Jubilee Beauty dies. These are just so pretty!

I started with a Highland Heather base, and then cut out two pieces in Gray Granite and attached them to the card. I then stamped in Memento Black and cut out the flowers. I coloured with markers for a change. I added a bit of Wink of Stella and a clear faceted gem. I’m trying to remember to use more embellishments on my cards this year as I always end up with packets that I didn’t use! Am I not the only one?

To create the sentiment from Birthday Jubilee, I stamped in Highland Heather. I then used a rectangle die from my favourite Stitched Rectangle dies however it was wider than the sentiment. I turned the piece around and placed it inside the die carefully and ran it through my die cutting machine, creating a perfectly sized rectangle!

I used dimensionals to pop up the flowers and doubled up on the dimensionals behind the sentiment.

CTC260 – Week 2 – Caseing the January June 2020 Mini Catalogue

Welcome to Week 2 of our challenge. As mentioned last week, we are running challenges for 2 weeks and the Crew is doing a separate hop each week.

So our challenge is to case anything from the 2020 January – June Mini Catalogue.

When I sat down to create my card for this challenge, the catalogue fell open to page 20 which features the So Sentimental bundle. I then realised that I don’t have this bundle but I need it as I love label dies!! I have now fixed this situation and it’s on it’s way to me!! But I did like the card on the top right.

The background of the card is one of the label shapes cut out a number of times. I liked that idea, so I used a piece of the 2018 – 2020 In-colour DSP stack in Pineapple Punch and punched it out with the Label Me Fancy punch.

I played around with the layout and eventually found one I was happy with. I decided to use the Sale-a-bration Happy Birthday to You stamp set and coloured it with a combination of blends (Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green and Light Smoky Slate) and blender pens (Coastal Cabana and Pacific Point). I then fussy cut the image out. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and the label is from the Painted label dies.

I have to admit, blue and yellow is one of my favourite colour combos!!

Next up is the lovely Tina.

We would love to see your creations from the 2020 January – June Mini Catalogue so make sure you share it over on at our Facebook group.

Kit for the win!

I know, don’t have a heart attack, I’m doing a mid-week blog post!! I had a card day on World Card making day with a couple of my lovely customers and we made up a few of the great kits that are in the Holiday Catalogue and the Annual Catalogue. One of the girls had the Looking Up Card kit and it looks so much nicer in person than it does in the catalogue!!

My Pop is 96 and doesn’t really need presents so each year I give him a bundle of birthday cards, usually from a kit, for his Christmas present. And for his birthday, he gets Christmas cards!

It comes with all the supplies to create 15 cards and includes 15 printed envelopes. There are 3 cards to make in each design. It also comes with a great stamp set that covers a few occasions, however as these are for Pop to give out for birthdays, I only used the bday stamp.

This kit was nice and easy to assemble. I think it took me about an hour to complete.

If you are looking for a gift for a beginner stamper, this kit is perfect!!

CTC252 – Casing page 52

I hope you are having a great weekend! I went to the car racing on the Gold Coast with my Dad, Uncle and cousin on Friday and had a fun day!!

This week we are casing a layout on page 52 of the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.

I’m not really into Halloween so I decided to make a floral card. But I was inspired by the layers on the gift bag on the right hand corner.

I love all the layers and I started off by looking through my dies. I was inspired by the Wild Roses dies and the matching stamp set, To a Wild Rose. I then flipped through my DSP’s and decided to go with the Magnolia Lane DSP.

I grabbed the Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon and zig zagged it across my card. I cut the flower banner in Crumb Cake and the sentiment piece in Petal Pink from the dies.

Next up is the amazing Siobhan. I can’t wait to see her creation this week!!

We would love to see your creation, so please share over on at our Facebook group.
