CTC47 – Let’s Kit Together

Have you seen all the lovely kits at the start of the 2015 Holiday Catalogue? It’s hard to choose which one is the best!! I have got the Tag kit but I’m keeping it to use at an upcoming class, so I was a little stumped as to what to make this week for the CASEing the Catty Challenge.

I decided to do a version of the Shaker Cards featured on page 4.

This kit has includes die cut card fronts, envelopes, printed foil card bases, window sheets, gold foil starts, word stickers (in 3 languages), Christmas tree and circle stickers, baker’s twine, star sequins, red, green and gold sequins, dimensional adhesive strips, chunky clear glitter and dimensionals. Wow, that’s a lot!! You can also get the matching stamp set – To You & Yours too, and the coordinating ink pads, Cucumber Crush, Crushed Curry and Memento Black.

I decided to use a note card and the only colour I could find in the cupboard was Crumb Cake. I then went with a piece of Typeset DSP to go underneath the cut out. I used the Perfect Pines and the Delicate Ornaments framelits to cut the inserts and then put a piece of window sheet over the hole. I then added dimensionals all around the inside of the cut out and added lots of confetti!! I cut out some garden green hearts using the Confetti Heart punch (as I don’t have the Confetti Star punch) and added lots of sequins from the Metalics sequin assortment.

I then carefully attached it to the base piece and added the word from the Wonderful Wreath framelits. I cut it out using the new precision plate, which worked like a dream, and the new Red foil sheets. I’m pretty happy with how they turned out!!

CTC28 – Mother’s Day

This week at Case-ing the Catty, we are casing the Mother’s Day section of the Occasions catalogue.

You may have come from the fabulous Nikki’s blog or be starting here. I’ve decided to case the note book shown on page 36 of the AU/NZ catalogue.

But I didn’t want to do a notepad for my mum. I do need a gift box for her special present, so I used the notepad as my inspiration.

I made the box using the Gift Box punch board and stamped it with one of the flower images from the Mum’s Love stamp set. I love this punch board!! I then made a belly band and stamped it using the retiring in-colours, Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding and also So Saffron (which isn’t retiring!!). I added a couple of sequins for a bit of bling!!

To make the tag, I used the Party Pennants Bigz die and cut out a Gold Vellum banner and a whisper white one. I used the sentiment from the Mum’s Love stamp set and added a few flowers like the belly band.

I added the in-colour twine and a string of sequins. I also put a piece of washi tape across the bottom of the tag.

I hope you like my box!! and I hope Mum does too!!
