CTC214 – Sale-a-bration

CTC-header

What a crazy week it has been weather wise in Australia!  From flooding up the top to fires down the bottom and extreme heat in between!  I hope you have been able to keep safe.

This week at CTC we are back casing the Sale-a-bration catalogue.

CTC214-fb

As you may know, all the items in the Sale-a-bration catalogue are free!! YAY!!  You can select from these items when you spend $90 or more in my online store (here) or buy contacting me directly to place your order.

I decided to case the card from page 10 which features the By the Bay stamp set.  This type of set is not really my style but I liked the layout of this card with the frames.

CTC214-bec-b

I think the stitched rectangle framelits are quickly becoming my favourites!  I cut out a frame using the Wood Textures DSP (I’ll be sad when it retires as it’s so handy) and a piece of whisper white.  I sponged it with a sponge brayer in Granny Apple Green and Balmy Blue.

As a cat lover, I wanted to use the new Nine Lives stamp set and the matching Cat punch.  And it’s my 18th wedding anniversary today, so it’s the card for my husband.  We have two spoilt kitties, Shadow (who is black) and Jaster (my grey boy).  I had a few goes at stamping and colouring a black cat but I settled with using the black blends.  It’s not just hard to photograph a black cat, but it’s hard to colour one as well!

I stamped the grey kitty in Gray Granite and coloured gently with my aqua painter.  I also stamped some blades of grass from the Abstract Impressions stamp set.

I then created a little banner for the sentiment which is also from the Nine Lives stamp set.

CTC212 – Sale-a-bration

CTC-header

Welcome to another week of Caseing the Catty.  It’s been so hot this week around Australia.  I hope you’ve been able to keep cool.

We are back casing the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.  There is so much inspiration within the pages of this little catalogue.

ctc212-fb

I have cased the three scoops cupcake card on page 6.

ctc212-bec-b

My colours were inspired by the 2017-2019 In Colours.  The base of the card is Fresh Fig which I have stamped using the sentiment from the Hello Cupcake stamp set.  (Hello, SAB freebie!!)  I’ve been dying to use the Rectangle Stitched framelits so I cut one of the larger ones using vellum.

I then stamped the cupcake base in Tranquil Tide, and then the scoops in Powder Pink, Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst.  Then fussy cut them all out.  I cheated and didn’t cut the tops out neatly of the ones that were covered up!

Another stitched rectangle for the sentiment.

ctc212-bec-a

I added Wink of Stella over the scoops but it doesn’t show well on the photo.  You could make this card in so many colour combos!!

Next up is the lovely Peta.

Lovely Lattice

Every year, I love to see what new stamp sets are going to be a part of Sale-a-bration.  This year, we have a great offering!!  One of the sets that I think is going to be very popular, is the Lovely Lattice stamp set.

Lovely Lattice Cling Stamp Set

It includes a large floral stamp, a teeny flower and a border stamp.

Oh and it’s one of the new cling mount sets as well!!  I am really enjoying the new cling mount stamps.  No falling off the blocks which is great!

As a demonstrator, I have access to a demonstrator only Facebook group made up of demos from around the world.  Lots of cards get shared on the group and I was inspired by a card shared by Debbie Prante.

I used the stunning Tufted embossing folder on the background.  I fussy cut the floral image and then coloured with blends.  I used Pool Party, Lovely Lipstick, Highland Heather, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green and Flirty Flamingo.   I coloured extra flowers and cut them out so that I could add dimension to the card.

The sentiment is from the Amazing Life stamp set and I cut it out with the Needlepoint Elements framelits.

I did also put Wink of Stella over all the flowers but it doesn’t show well in the photos.

If you love this stamp set, you can select it as your free Sale-a-bration item when you spend $90 or more.  Just click on the image below to go to my online store.

CTC210 – Sale-a-bration

CTC-header

Welcome back to 2019 and a new exciting year of Caseing the Catty.  I am excited that we have five new Crew members joining us this year!!   A big welcome to Lauren, Siobhan, Michelle, Shannon and Tina.

And we also have the new 2019 Occasions Catalogue and the Sale-a-bration Catalogue!  woo hoo!!!

So to start off the year, we are caseiing the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.  You can case anything from the catty from a layout, colour combo or a project.

ctc210-fb

There are so many gorgeous new products and projects in the SAB catty!  It’s hard to decide which one to case!!  I went with the Call Me Clover card on page 15.

ctc210-bec-b

This card is showing off the new Lovely Lattice stamp set which you can earn for free by spending $90 with me.

I decided to change the colour to Gorgeous Grape because I like it!  To create the background, I cut out 2 of the Trellis piece from the Rose Trellis thinlits and glue one row together using the Fine Tip glue pen.  I then attached the whole piece to the card.  I then stamped the flowers from the Lovely Lattice stamp set in Memento black ink and fussy cut it out.

Using the Rose Trellis thinlits, I cut out the sentiment piece in Gray Granite and stamped the sentiment from Climbing Roses stamp set.

ctc210-bec-aI then added a few of the new Gingham Gala adhesive backed sequins.  Aside from the fussy cutting, this was an easy card to make!  Oh and I forgot to mention that the Lovely Lattice Stamp set is one of the new Cling mount stamp sets!!  As someone who lives in a humid area (hello, Queensland!!), I often struggle with my stamps not staying on the clear blocks.  There is no budging the cling mount sets!!  They work beautifully.

Next up is my new friend, Shannon Kissane.  I can’t wait to see what she has created for us!

CTC164 – Occasion Kits

ctc_header

We’ve finally had a couple of cooler days over the weekend, which has been lovely!!

This week we are casing the Occasion Kits section, pages 15-17, of the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.

ctc164-fb

There are only a few projects to choose from which made it a bit easier to pick one!!

I cased one of the cards from the Perennial Birthday Project Kit.  This is a gorgeous kit and the box is to die for!!  I may have bought it just for the box!!  I am casing the pink card on page 16.

ctc164-bec-e

I used the card bases from the free Tutti-Frutti cards and envelopes that you can earn during Sale-a-bration.  You get 16 cards and envelopes in the pack with 4 cards of each of the 4 colours.  In keeping with the tutti frutti theme, I used the Lots of Labels framelits and cut out the largest frame in the Tutti Frutti DSP stack.

I then cut out a banner in co-ordinating card stock and used my favourite punch, the Triple banner punch.

I used the Bunch of Banner framelits to cut out another banner and stamped it with the birthday sentiment from the Fruit Basket stamp set.

CTC161 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

I hope you have had a great week!  I survived the first week back at work and it seems like I was never away!

I am excited to share our first challenge of the 2018 Sale-a-bration Catalogue!  We are casing any of the fabulous projects from the SAB catalogue.

ctc161-fb

I decided to case the box on page 17, but turned it into a card instead.

ctc161-bec-b

I kept the same elements with a DSP background, a stamped background and of course, the amazing Celebrate You thinlits.

I used the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP and based my colour choices on the paper.  I used the co-ordinating Lots of Love stamp set and stamped the flower in Pool Party to create a subtle background.

I then cut out the words in Calypso Coral and Gold glimmer paper.  Doesn’t it look pretty!!

CTC120 – Urban Underground

Here we are with another Sunday CASEing the Catty hop for you.  I really love doing these and enjoy the challenge each week to really study the catalogue and work out what to case.

This week, we are casing the Urban Underground section, from pages 46-49 of the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

I don’t have any of the sets in this section, although I did buy the hexagon embossing folder, which I love!!  I was running a bit short of time to create a card this week (knew I should have done it last week when I had heaps of time!!), so I decided to case the superhero card on page 49.

I really love the block layout of this card.  I decided to use the Balloon Adventures stamp set and the gorgeous SAB Carried Away DSP.  Did you know that on the back of the DSP packet, it lists all the co-ordinating colours used?  That way there is no guessing as to which colours were used.  I went with a Night of Navy base and then used Smoky Slate ink for the sentiment.  I was going to stamp and cut out a balloon but the DSP is just so nice, I decided to let it speak for itself.  This was a really quick card to make so great for when you have to make a last minute card.

Time is running out to earn your favourite sale-a-bration products, so place your qualifying $90 order with me today.  Here’s a link to my online store.  Don’t forget SAB ends on 31 March!

Next up on our hop today is fellow Queenslander, Julia!

Please come and join our Facebook Challenge Group where you can join us and share your projects from the same section of the catalogue.

Happy Stamping!!
