CTC112 – Cupcakes & Carousels Pages 8-13

Crew PickWow I’m on a roll today, two posts in one day.  And I’m actually blogging about my card before the entries  close to this challenge.     This weeks CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge is Cupcakes & Carousels pages 8-13 of the Occasions Catalogue.

Cupcakes & Carousels Case

I have chosen to CASE the “Celebrate” card on page 11 of the Occasions Catalogue.

Celebrate Card

I’ve silver heat embossed a Lace Doily from the Occasions Catty.  I just love how it turned out.  I’ve also used bolder colours with Flirty Flamingo and Dapper Denim.

Card Case

I’ve used the So In Love stamp set to stamp the background and the Lift Me Up stamp set for the sentiment.

This card even has the paw of approval from my trusty assistant Marvi.

I’d love you to click on this link and like my card.

Thanks for stopping by

CTC111 – Sale-a-Bration

Here is my entry to last weeks CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge.  We could case anything from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.  Spend $90 on anything from Stampin’ Up! and you can choose a free product from the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue.  Who doesn’t like free things?


Sale-a-bration Case Page

I chose to CASE the “Thanks” card from page 6 of the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue.  I liked the squares made from Carried Away DSP.  I didn’t have any of this paper so I improvised.

Thanks Card

Here’s my version using the Delicate Details stamp set, which is free with any $90 order.

Card Case

I made a version of this card in my class today.  I just love Bermuda Bay and Elegant Eggplant together with Silver Embossing.

CTC110 – Party Animals pages 4-7

I’m a little behind with my blog posting.  This is a Challenge (click here to see the other entries)  I participated in last week.  We had to case a card from pages 4-7 of the Occasions Catalogue

Party Animals

I don’t have any of the Party Animals Suite but that wasn’t a problem.  The card I chose to case is from page 6. I really liked the layout of the card with the diagonal Happy Birthday.

Case Card

Here’s my version using the Urban Underground Suite.

Urban Underground Case

I just love the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on Silver Foil Card.

ESAD 2017 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration Blog Hop

Esad Header Photo

Thanks for joining us on ESAD’s 2017 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration Blog Hop.  You may have hopped over to me after seeing Nicole’s great project.  When you’ve finished on my page make sure you click on the next button to hop over to Rachael’s project.  I’m sure you don’t want to miss out on any of these amazing posts.

Today we are highlighting products from the new Occasions Catalogue and teaming them up with products from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.  Both of these Catalogues are full of great new products.  During Sale-a-bration you get a free item of your choice from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue for every $90 you spend.  Who doesn’t love something for free?

I’ve chosen to use the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle (p26 Occasions) and Delicate Details Stamp Set (p9 SAB).  Now I’m sure you just looked at both of these sets and thought “they don’t really go together” but I hope to change your mind.  It’s obvious to pair Delicate Details with the Falling in Love suite but I wanted a challenge.


Dragonfly Card

I’ve used Tip Top Taupe as my card base and layered it with Night of Navy then added some Copper Foil as a border.

White Embossing

The Delicate Details Stamps have been heat embossed in white and the sentiment heat embossed in copper.

Spot backgroundLayered dragonfly

It’s hard to see in the photo but I’ve stamped some spots behind the dragonfly in Versa Mark.  The copper foil dragonfly has been layered with whisper white card stock.


Inside cardCloseup inside card

I’ve added some more spots on the inside of the card (these ones are much easier to see lol) and a sentiment and a small copper dragonfly.  Now my post wouldn’t be complete without a picture of my assistant Marvi……….

Marvi is such a poser but as soon as I looked away……………….where did my copper dragonfly go?

Now it’s time to hop over to Rachael’s blog and check out her wonderful project.

Thank’s for stopping by, I’d love if you left me a comment
