CTC281 – Casing a Punch Bundle

Welcome to another fun week of Caseing the Catty!! The weather has been getting warmer which is nice although we are having the August winds happening as well.

We are casing the punch bundles on page 168 – 169 of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue. These pages are extra projects showing off all the punch bundles.

I decided to case the card on page 168 which features the Rectangular Postage stamp punch. Now I don’t have this punch yet although I do like it. I had a flip through the World of Good Memories and More card pack and was inspired by one of the gold foil card sized pieces featuring the globe, mimicking the look of the postage stamps.

I then mounted it onto a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and added one of the banner stickers from the card pack. I stamped a sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Misty Moonlight.

The Memories and More card packs are great for making quick cards. They include 50 double sided cards, in 3″ x 4″ and 4″x 6″ sizes and 4 sticker sheets. You can also get a pack of Memories & More cards and envelopes which perfectly fit the card pack.

I’m needing more masculine cards so this pack of Memories & More cards is perfect for that!

Next up is my lovely friend, Tina from South Australia.

We would love to see your cards casing the punch bundles of the Annual Catalogue.

I’m excited to be back with Colour Inkspiration tonight!! We have another lovely colour combo to share with you.

We have Basic Black, Mossy Meadow, Bumblebee and Whisper White.

I started off with the Ornate Floral embossing folder in Bumblebee and added a piece of Whisper White Polka dot ribbon. I stamped the large floral stamp from Ornate Style stamp set and coloured it using blends. I did have to use Daffodil Delight as there isn’t a Bumblebee blend. I love how you can get different colours by using the light and dark pens.

The sentiment is from Peaceful Moments stamp set and I cut it out with Painted Labels dies.

We would love to see your creations using this colour combo over on at our Facebook group, here.

CTC280 – Casing a new Catalogue Cover

I hope you have had a crafty weekend. I had a day off on Monday and I managed to do 4 crafts in one day!! Talk about best day ever!! I did some card making, diamond painting, crocheting and some paper piecing hand sewing.

Are you as excited as I am for the August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue!! I’m not sure I’m ready for Christmas yet but I am starting to get excited for the Christmas goodies in the catty.

Our challenge this week is to case the cover of the August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue.

My favourite Christmas colour combo is red and green, so I love this cover! I decided to case the circle box on the bottom left, however I’ve made a card instead.

I am loving the Poinsettia Place suite, which includes the Poinsettia Petals stamp set and Poinsettia dies. I love the stamps and the dies and the options you have with them. You can stamp the petals and die cut them or you can die cut the petals and then emboss the veins.

I stamped and cut out the flowers in Real Red and the leaves in Shaded Spruce. I also cut out the holly in gold foil to match the Wonder of the Season Specialty DSP that I used in the background.

I curved the petals of the flowers using a bone folder to add a bit more depth to them. I was going to add some gold metallic thread but I totally forgot until I was finished!

Next up is the lovely Sandra in New Zealand.

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

Oh, the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine is almost here!!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been hanging out to be able to purchase the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. Pre-order has started for Demonstrators and it will be available to purchase by customers starting on 1 September. The Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine isn’t available but hopefully we will be able to order it by the end of the year.

So, what sets our machines apart from the rest? Here are some of our favourite features:

  • Durable machines with high-quality results. The solid steel construction frame and rubber feet that securely grip the work surface produce crisp, clean, precise cutting and beautifully detailed embossing.
  • Easy to use. The machines and tools are designed for an intuitive die-cutting and embossing experience. For example, all plates are labelled with a number and are colour-coded for easy reference and use when building your sandwich. And just like the name suggests, our Magnetic Cutting Plates have fully-magnetic surfaces to make it easy to securely position your dies and keep them in place.
  • Simple to store. The platforms on both machines fold for space-saving storage and they look pretty too–the sleek, clean design suits any crafting space.
  • Portable. You can use both machines at home or on the go with their folding platforms and ergonomic carrying handles. It’s also more convenient if you like to attend crops or other crafting get togethers.

Now if you don’t want to wait until September to purchase a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine, you don’t have to!

You can join as a demonstrator and select the machine as part of your starter kit! And the best part is, you will save $40 and be able to add another $26 worth of goodies to your starter kit. In detail, the machine is $209, however when you are selecting products, you can choose up to $235 worth of product. You also get free shipping and a business supplies kit.

There’s no commitment to remain as a demonstrator however you will enjoy 20% off your stamping purchases which is a great deal! You also get to pre-order goodies when new catalogues come out and also participate in exclusive Stampin’ Up! events.

If you would like to take advantage of this offer, and become a member of my team, click here.

Now, Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine is a bit of a mouthful and I’m likely to get tongue tied, so my new name for them is going to be Big Boss and Little Boss!

My big boss is on it’s way to me and I can’t wait to have a play and share it with you!!
