Welcome to Caseing the Catty! As you may know, I do shift work and I’ve been working the last couple of weekends. I don’t know what day it is anymore!! Could be Thursday, feels like Monday!
We are casing our Favourite Annual Catalogue Suite from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue. Yes, we haven’t forgotten the Annual Catalogue in amongst the excitement of the Mini and SAB Catties!!
I am actually casing one of the cards from our challenge image which I didn’t do on purpose even though I’m the one who creates the graphics! I just love the Simply Elegant Suite which includes the Elegantly Said Stamp Set, Elegant Tag Punch, Simply Elegant DSP and the Simply Elegant Trim.
I am casing the small card on the left of the image.
I haven’t created a smaller card and have kept it at an A5 size. I added an extra strip of the gorgeous Simply Elegant DSP. I then punched out the Elegant Tag punch in Very Vanilla. I embossed the sentiment from Elegantly Said stamp set in copper embossing powder (don’t you love watching embossing powder melt!!). I then stamped the flower in Basic Gray. I did use the retired copper trim behind the punched shape and added a bow.
I had to make a second card using the Peaceful Prints DSP which is a Sale-a-bration freebie! I started off with a Garden Green base and I embossed another piece using the Wintry 3d embossing folder. I cut 5 stips of DSP and hand cut a reindeer. I cut out a couple of labels from the Seasonal Labels dies and stamped the sentiment from Christmas to Remember using markers.
I hope you like my cards, please leave me a comment and let me know! Next up is the lovely Rachel.
Please share your creation over on at our Facebook group.
Welcome to another fun week at Caseing the Catty. I hope that you are all coping with the lockdowns and keeping safe at home.
This week, we are casing the July – December 2021 Mini Catalogue.
I just received the Frosted Gingerbread bundle and I couldn’t wait to have a play with this set. I’m casing the card in the middle of page 8.
I love that the dies in the Gingerbread dies cut out the DSP as well as the stamped images. I created 2 cards for this challenge. For the first card, I embossed a piece of Old Olive using the Wintry 3d embossing folder. I cut out the images from the Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP and put them on a piece of Real Red. The sentiment is from the Frosted Gingerbread Stamp set and I used the Seasonal Labels dies. The ribbon is Real Red Sheer Ribbon.
For my second card, I used the Tidings of Christmas DSP as the background. I didn’t add a banner for the ornaments. I cut out the ornaments using the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper and added them to a white base. I used the same sentiment and dies and used the Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic Ribbon.
Next up is the lovely Julia. I can’t wait to see what she has created this week.
We would love to see your creation so please share over on at our Facebook group.
Well hasn’t it been an “interesting” week. As a Queenslander, I am excited that we are now out of lockdown. Yay, I get to go to work tomorrow! It has been nice to not have to commute or make lunches ahead of time but there have been a couple of days that I was soo cold!! Luckily, hot water bottle to the rescue!! My thoughts and prayers are with everyone else who is still in lockdown.
Something else that is exciting this week, is that the 2021 July – December Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration catalogues have gone live!! We are casing the Sale-a-bration Catalogue this week.
I didn’t very far through the catalogue and went with the Joy card on the right. When I looked closely at the red flower, I realised that the flower was the Be Dazzling paper which had been spritzed. Of course, I had to give that a try.
I started off by cutting a banner from the Beautifully Penned DSP which is a SAB freebie and sponging it with Shaded Spruce and a blending brush. I then cut out a flower from the Poinsettia dies in the Be Dazzling paper. I then spritzed it with Cherry Cobbler ink. I’m so glad that I cleaned my desk yesterday for a Zoom chat with my stamping ladies as I spritzed some of my desk as well!! I sat it in the sun to dry whilst I got the greenery sorted out.
I stamped some greenery in Shaded Spruce from the Forever Fern stamp set and die cut them out. I also stamped some holly from the Merriest Moment stamp set and Merriest Frames dies in Granny Apple Green. I then cut out some sprigs in Cherry Cobbler and Be Dazzling paper from the Poinsettia dies.
I enjoyed creating the sentiment using a couple of the sentiment stamps from the Merriest Moment set.
If you love the Be Dazzling paper, you can choose it as your SAB freebie when you spend $90 with me!
Next up is the lovely Tina.
We would love to see your creations casing the Sale-a-bration catalogue, so please share over on at our Facebook group.
Well hasn’t it been an interesting week!! Us Queenslanders are now taking our turn for lockdown. I’m all set for working at home tomorrow. Have to say, I’m looking forward to the commute!!
But it’s time to start getting ready for the July-December Mini Catalogue to start on Tuesday 3 August!! We are casing the cover of the catalogue for our hop tonight.
Now there isn’t a lot to case on this image but you’d be surprised by what the Crew has created!! They are a talented bunch!!
My card took a few interesting turns!! I wanted to have a play with the Words of Cheer bundle and use the words to replace the ribbon but the words are a tight fit if you want to do a landscape card on Australian card sizes. I wanted to have an embossed background and for my first card I used the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. I cut out the centre of the card using the tag die from the Stockings dies. I used Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade for Cheers and Blushing Bride for the background. The floral piece is from the Words of Cheer stamp set and I coloured using blends. I added some Wink of Stella over the flowers. There may have been an incident with Stella so I had to cut out another flower and added it over the spot!
I’m not a lover of non-traditional colours so I thought I would have a play with Shaded Spruce and Real Red. I used the Wintry 3d embossing folder.
It was fun playing with this bundle, although it took me ages to create both of these cards!!
Next up is the lovely Tina.
