CTC204 – Favourite Holiday Big Shot Project

ctc_header

Well, my amazing holiday is all over and I’m back Caseing the Catty with you!

I had a wonderful time in Orlando, Florida, going to the Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios and of course, attending Onstage Live.

For those who don’t know, Stampin’ Up! holds demonstrator only events every six months, called Onstage.  There is a 3 day Live event held in one region and all the other regions have a 1 day local event.   This event was extra special as it was the 30th Anniversary of Stampin’ Up!  I was also privileged to attended the Centrestage Leadership event which was held at Epcot.

I’ll be doing a blog post this week sharing more about my trip, so make sure you check back.

So back to CTC!  We are casing our Favourite Holiday Big Shot projects from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

I love the Peaceful Poinsettia bundle which includes the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set and the Detailed Poinsettia thinlits.  I haven’t used this set enough!

ctc204-bec-a

I have cased the card on the right with a few changes.  I do love the corrugated embossing folder which I sponged (or dragged the ink pad over) in Whisper White ink.  I added a piece of Lovely Lipstick grosgrain ribbon to the right of the corrugated piece.

Another favourite big shot item is the Stitched Labels framelits, so I used the large label framelit for the sentiment.   I had already cut out the Poinsettia framelits and hadn’t used them, so I just played with the layout.

To purchase the products that I have used to create this card, head down to the bottom of my post where you will see the little images of the products.  Just click on the image and you will be taken to my online store.

CTC200 – Toil & Trouble

ctc_header

The countdown for Orlando is going very quickly!! It’s 18 days until we go!!  I received my invitation to Centrestage yesterday, which is so exciting.  I get to go to Epcot for an afternoon/evening with all the leaders of Stampin’ Up! It includes entry into Epcot, a special gift, a copy of the Occasions Catalogue and a yummy dessert.  I can’t wait!!

But there’s still a few weeks of CTC to go before I leave!  This week we are casing the Toil & Trouble section, pages 48-55 of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

ctc200---fb

I’m not into Halloween, so I don’t have any of the Halloween sets.  I have based my project on one of the boxes on the title page, which has the spider web on it.

ctc200-bec-b

But I don’t have the boxes so I went with the pillow boxes.  Did you know these come in a packet of 10 for only $8.75.

So, one of the perks of being a demonstrator, is that we get to purchase products early!  There is a great bundle coming in the month of November that is featuring Snowflakes.  There are two stamp sets, Snow is Glistening and Happiness Surrounds, Snowfall thinlits, White Velvet paper and snowflake trinkets.

So I’ve used the Snowfall thinlits and cut out the largest Snowflake in Sparkle Glimmer paper.  I then stamped one of the smaller snowflakes from Snow is Glistening stamp set in Poppy Parade and cut it out with the thinlits.  I then painted in Wink of Stella for a bit of extra bling.

I stamped the sentiment in Garden Green and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes oval framelits.  I then cut out another snowflake in Garden Green and added on the Santa’s Workshop enamel shapes.

ctc200-bec-a

I really love this bundle and I can’t wait to play with it more!

Next up is the lovely Peta.

It’s an Extravaganza!


ON-LINE-CHRISTMAS-CLASS-copy

My fabulously talented friend, Bronwyn, is running an online Christmas Class Extravaganza at the moment and I am just loving it!!

As you know, I love fancy fold cards and one of our first projects is an Easel card.  I’ve been able to ink up my new Buffalo Check stamp.  Don’t you just love it!  Such a versatile stamp.

I’ve gone with Lovely Lipstick, Call Me Clover and Whisper White as my colours.  I love traditional Christmas colours!

add-16b

I’ve used the Detailed Lace Thinlits and did it on both sides of the strip of buffalo check.  Hasn’t it come up pretty!!  My sentiments are from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set.

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.

ctc197---fb

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.

ctc197-bec-c

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.

ctc197-bec-b

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.

ctc197-bec-a

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.

CTC196 – Santa’s Workshop

ctc_header

I had my stamp class yesterday and it’s always nice to catch up with everyone.  It’s just lovely to get together with others who love the same thing as you do and craft together.  I hope you have a regular group that you can do that with.

I always love to get together with my online friends as well every Sunday night and share our crafting projects with you.  This week at Caseing the Catty, we are casing the Santa’s Workshop section, pages 18-27 of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

ctc196---fb

Aren’t all those little Santa’s cute!  I am doing a different card today though, and have cased the card on page 23 using the Peaceful Poinsettia bundle.

ctc196-bec-b

My card is fairly similar to the original but I’ve used the Dashing Along DSP that you can earn for free this month with a workshop of over $400 in sales.

I added gold foil along the sides of the DSP.  I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and then cut it out using the largest Oval from the Stitched Shapes framelits.  I then cut out a few of the flowers and holly in different colours from the Detailed Poinsettia thinlits.  I coloured the holly using Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends.

Next up is the lovely Monique.

ESAD Holiday Blog Hop

esad holiday header

Welcome to my blog!  You may have come from Sharni’s blog or be starting here with me.  I’m excited to be a part of tonight’s ESAD 2018 Holiday Catalogue blog hop!

esad holiday what

I’m not only a papercraft, but a lover of many other crafts!!  One of my all time favourites is cross stitch so I was excited to see the Cross Stitch Christmas stamp set.

Here the latest cross stitch that I finished earlier this year.

bec-cross-stitch

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the 3 trees in Shaded Spruce, Granny Apple Green and Real Red.  It does take a little bit of practice to get the stamps lined up nicely.   I cut it out with an Oval Stitched Shape framelits and then a crumb cake oval.

I embossed the Granny Apple Green with the Quilt Top embossing folder.  Don’t you just love this folder!

esad-holiday-bec

I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce and punched it out with the Classic Label punch.  I added a piece of Polka Dot ribbon and Real Red Solid Ribbon.

I just love Christmas!!!  I can’t wait to get into making Christmas cards!

Head on over to visit Lou and check out her gorgeous project!

CTC194 – All is Bright

ctc_header

Welcome to Spring!!  Can you believe we are in September already!!  What is more exciting is that the 2018 Holiday 2018 starts this week!!

We are getting in a little early this week as the 2018 Holiday Catalogue starts on 5 September.  We are casing the All is Bright Section, pages 4-11.

ctc194---fb

I just love all the gorgeous projects in these pages!  I decided to case a couple of the cards from page 4.  The All is Bright DSP is just lovely.  One side of the paper has a photographic image and the other side is a pattern.  I’ve used the gold bauble DSP.  I don’t have the poinsettia stamp so I used the Stitched Labels Framelits in Real Red.  I cut out 6 green branches from the Christmas Staircase thinlits.  I cut out the two Merry’s from the new Merry Christmas thinlits.  I have some left over gold foil from a previous kit so the Merry is a little shiner than usual.

ctc194-bec-a

I couldn’t decide which card to do so I did a second card! I combined some elements from one of the other cards on the page.  Instead of embossing the background with Shaded Spruce cardstock, I used a piece of gold foil.  Don’t you love the Swirls and Curls embossing folder!

You can create your own doily using the Detailed Bauble thinlits.  I stamped the sentiment in Real Red and cut out the holly in Shaded Spruce and added some pearls coloured with Stampin’ Blends.  I added some Real Red solid ribbon behind the doily and attached to the card.

ctc194-bec-b

Oh I love Christmas!!  I can’t wait to play more with all my goodies from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue!!

Next up is the awesome Judy!
