CTC205 – Case a birthday card and give a Christmas Twist

ctc_header

Well I have survived my first week back at work and sadly life is getting back to normal.  But I did put my Christmas tree up this week!!  Actually I should say trees as I have 2.  I need one for just my travelling Christmas ornaments!

This is the main tree!

This week at CTC we are doing something a little different and casing a birthday card and giving it a Christmas Twist.

Sometimes I forget that you can use the Catalogues to case layouts as well as copying cards.  I’ve cased a birthday card from page 77 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.

I decided to use the Snowfall thinlits and the Snow is Glistening stamp set which are only available this month.  The stamp set includes two stamps which were perfect for recreating the look of the cut outs on the original card.  For my centre piece, I used some retired Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper for lots of sparkle.  It needed something to make it stand out, so I added a Pacific Point scallop circle behind it.

I put a piece of Gray Granite Textured Weave Ribbon behind the snow flake.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Alpine Adventure stamp set and punched it using the 1″ circle punch.

The photo doesn’t do it justice as it’s quite sparkly in real life!

The Snowflake Showcase which includes the Snow is Glistening Stamp Set, the Happiness Surrounds Stamp Set, the Snowfall Thinlits and the cute Snowflake trinkets is still available until 30 November so click here to pick yours up from my online store.

Don’t forget the Online Extravangza is still on!  Make sure you don’t miss out.  Check it out here.

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.

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.

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.

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

CTC147 – Christmas Around the World

Well Summer has hit with a vengeance!!  It’s 27.5 degrees today but it feels hotter.  What is Summer going to be like!!

We are casing the Christmas Around the World section, pages 28-35 of the 2017 Holiday catalogue.

As I was flipping through the pages of this weeks’ section, I got excited to see that it included the Snowflake Sentiments bundle!

I’ve recently purchased this set so this was my first opportunity to try it out.  I am casing the box on page 35 but making it as a card.

I had a couple of attempts and it took me a while to punch out the little pieces!  There’s a lot of confetti happening at my place today!

I used the Be Merry DSP from the Annual Catalogue for the strip across the middle.    I also love the sentiments in this stamp set especially the large Season’s Greeting.

Once I got all the little pieces out, this card actually didn’t take too long to put together.

Next up is the lovely Rose.

Make sure you join in with us this week, over at our Facebook page.

Happy Stamping
