CTC182 – Tea Room

ctc_header

Well I’ve had an exciting week visiting China with my sister.  We had a great time visiting the Great Wall, the Beijing Zoo, Shaolin Temple and the Yellow River.

So I’ve unpacked, washed and had a great sleep and am ready to jump into the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.

I wasn’t going to join in the hop this week as I wasn’t sure I’d be able to have time to create a card.  But my new catalogue order arrived whilst I was away and when I opened up the box, I just had to join in!!  So many exciting new goodies to play with!!

So this week, we are casing the Tea Room section, pages 13-25 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.

I decided to case the card on page 20 using the Botanical Bliss Bundle.  Did you know that you save 10% when you purchase a bundle.

ctc182-bec-b

This bundle is just so lovely!  I can’t wait to play more with them.  I pretty much cased the card as is.  I used the gorgeous Share What You Specialty DSP.  For the background, I used the new Soft Sea Foam cardstock and stamped the flower from the Botanical Bliss stamp set.

The roses and flowers come from the Botanical Tags thinlits.  You can use these dies as a tag or there is an additional die that allows you cut the flower out completely.

I used copper embossing powder on the oval and Tranquil Tide for the sentiment.  I used copper foil for the leaves in the background and added a little bit of copper metallic thread.

CTC145 – Merry Little Christmas

Aren’t you just loving the Holiday Catalogue!!  If you don’t have one, you NEEEED one!!  Let me know if you want one and I’ll post one to you, or you can click on the link at the side.

This week, we are casing the Merry Little Christmas section, pages 10-19, of the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

I decided to case the card on page 17 using the Feeling of Christmas stamp set.

I just love the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  It’s hard to decide which side to use as both look fabulous.  I pretty much cased the card exactly but I used a gold metallic doily instead.  I have to confess that I had to stamp the wreath about 6 times!!!  I couldn’t believe it!  I either stuffed up the distressed circle or the flower wreath.

I wanted to make a second version using the Wood Textures DSP stack.  I also just coloured the wreath using my aqua painter and Pear Pizzazz ink.   And I added a white doily this time.

Which one do you prefer?  I think I like the DSP version.

Make sure you join in with us at our Facebook group!

Next up on the hop is the amazing Fi.

CTC96 – Big Shot

ctc_header

Can you believe that we are in September and my holiday is just around the corner!!    Aren’t you just loving the 2016 Holiday catalogue?  There are so many gorgeous projects to case!!  Of course, this week is no exception.

We are casing the Big Shot section between pages 8-11.  There are lots of amazing stamp sets in this section and it was hard to decide which one to use.

ctc96

I love the Banners for Christmas stamp set and the Bunch of Banners framelits so I was excited to case this card on page 10.

ctc96-c

I did pretty much the same as the catalogue but I did gold foil instead of gold glimmer paper as I’m going to use this card for my stamp club project and I didn’t have enough glimmer paper for everyone.  I also used the red and green glitter embossing powder as it is so pretty and sparkly.

I think I like the red best but both look pretty.  Let me know which one you like!!

CTC91 – Birthdays

ctc_header

Sunday’s just seem to come around so quickly, don’t they!!  This week, we are casing the Birthdays section of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue from pages 10-25.

ctc91 - bday

I have loved the Birthday Fiesta as soon as the catalogue came out although I don’t know how often I need a Llama on a card!!  But I have a friend who has Alpaca’s and it’s his birthday shortly, so this card will be perfect for him!!

I have cased the gift bag on page 10 and instead of the cactus, I’ve put the Llama.

ctc91

I love the banners and I can’t wait to do more with them as they are soooo cute!!  The Festive Birthday DSP is so lovely and the colours are great together.

CTC67 – Birthday Bouquet

ctc_header

Sunday’s nights seem to come around so quickly these days, don’t they!!  Here we are back again with another Caseing the Catty hop.  This week, we are casing the gorgeous Birthday Bouquet section of the 2016 Occasions catalogue.  This section has some of my favourite stamps and dsp in it so it was hard to choose what to make!!

I decided to case the card on the top left of page 8 of the catalogue.

ctc67-p8

I just love the Birthday Blooms stamp set.  It’s just so pretty!  And the flower just stamps so lovely and is just perfect for colouring.  And it goes perfectly with the Birthday Bouquet DSP which you know I just love too!!

I had a couple of mistakes (sorry, creative moments) when I made this card, so it ended up being square!  But I still like it!!  I like the colours used on the DSP but I decided to try a different colour combo and used Mint Macaron and Delightful Dijon.  I started colouring the darker portion with blender pens and then used the aqua painter for the lighter sections.  I added Gold Wink of Stella in the centre of the larger flower and then as a accent on the smaller flowers.

 

ctc67-bec-b

 

I always forget to make a envelope when I make a square card so I decided to be organised today and do one and even added a matching liner!!  Am I on fire or what!!  LOL.  And the envelope punch board is on special this week so you need to grab one now!!

Due to my earlier creative moment, I had a base with the cute background paper attached to it, so I decided to cut a flower from the DSP.  Yes, you read that right, I CUT THE DSP!!!! Now fussy cutting is not my favourite thing to do, and I even did the teeny tiny flowers as well.

 

ctc67-bec-a

But I think it was worth cutting out!  It is rather cute.

CTC64 – Celebrating freebies

ctc_header

We are back with another Sunday Caseing the Catty blog hop! Sunday’s are coming around so quickly, aren’t they! Especially when you have to go to work or school the next day. But I hope we can cheer up your Sunday evening with lots of cards to inspire you!

This week, we are back to casing the Sale-a-bration catalogue. So many glorious freebies to be had!! Did you know that some of the free stamps and paper are only available until 15 February? No? Well you need to get your order in so you can get them before they are no longer available!!

I just love the Hello stamp set. It covers more than just birthdays, although that is what I have focussed on this week. I was inspired by the card on page 18 of the catalogue.

ctc64---sab

I loved the gold Hello on the original but I was too lazy to do embossing!! (It’s been pretty hot and humid this week, which doesn’t make for easy crafting!!) So I thought I would try White staz on ink on my watercoloured Bermuda Bay background. But it didn’t come out as white as I would have like, but I was committed so I continued with it. I then stamped the birthday sentiment in Rose Red and added a piece of the It’s my Party washi tape as well. (It’s one of my goals to USE washi tape this year, rather than just collect it!!). I then added a piece of the Bermuda Bay stitched ribbon (which is sooo much nicer than the picture in the catalogue!!)

ctc64---bec-a

I decided to try a clean and simple version of this card and I love it!! The colours look so nice and crisp!

CTC48 – Lovely Gorgeous Holiday DSP

This week at CASE-ing the Catty, we are being inspired by the lovely, gorgeous Holiday Designer Series Paper in the Holiday Catalogue.

There is so much lovely designer series paper in this catalogue. And I have to say that I’m having trouble cutting up the Home for Christmas DSP!! I usually have no problems cutting up DSP but this one is just so nice!!

CTC 48

I was inspired by the cards on page 8 of the catalogue and I decided to CASE them fairly closely. Why re-invent the wheel when they look gorgeous anyway!!

CTC48 - catty image

I cased 3 of the projects on this picture. I used the Home for Christmas DSP and the matching Cozy Christmas stamp set.

I think the little reindeer on the DSP are very cute so I cut out 2 (one for the inside). I used my On Film framelits to create the frame which I should do more often as it looks great!!

ctc48 - Bec c

And how cute is that little reindeer on the inside. It’s a great way to use the deer which are on the side of the DSP.

ctc48 - bec d

For my second card, I decided to turn the gift bag into a card. I don’t have the pom pom trim so I decided to put a Stripes satin ribbon bow at the top.

ctc48 - Bec a

For my final card, I went with the bow card. I love my bow builder punch so any opportunity to use it!! And I’m loving square cards as well!!

ctc48 - Bec b

I hope you have enjoyed my cards for this week and are inspired to actually use all that lovely, gorgeous designer series paper!!!
