CTC197 – Joyous Noel

ctc_header

Welcome to another week of Caseing the Catty.  I am really loving the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  I can’t wait for Christmas!!

This week we are casing the Joyous Noel section, pages 28-35 of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

The Joyous Noel suite is just gorgeous.  The DSP is to die for!!  However, I’ve decided to case the bauble card on page 34.

I made two cards using this card as inspiration.  My first one was a close case, however I have used the Dashing Along DSP instead of an embossed background.  I used the Great Joy stamp set which goes perfectly with Stampin’ Blends.  I’ve used Smoky Slate, Call Me Clover, Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight.

I also put Wink of Stella on the bow but it’s a bit hard to photograph.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Baubles stamp set.

This is such a great layout to case.  I’ve gone with a non-traditional colour theme of Bermuda Bay and Pool Party.

To create the embossed background, I used the new Big Shot embossing mats.  With the mats, you can use a die and instead of cutting, it just embosses the cardstock.  Awesome!!

I embossed the baubles from Beautiful Baubles in silver embossing powder and cut out with the largest circle from the Stitched Shape framelits.

Whilst I am a traditional  Christmas colour lover, I quite like the combo of Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and silver!

Next up is the lovely Rose.

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
