CTC 133 – Love & Sympathy – Pages 86-101

Stampin' Cat Marbled Bloomin' HeartStampin' Up!

This weeks CTC Challenge is to CASE the Love & Sympathy section of the 20107/2018 Annual Catalogue.  I found it difficult this week as there’s so many beautiful cards in this section.  I didn’t know which one to CASE!

CTC 133

I decided to case the “Love is in the Air” card on page 88.

Stamping' Up!

I’ve CASEd the design but changed the colours.  I thought this card would look great in some of the new In Colours.  I used Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig for my flowers.

I love how you can see through the Bloomin’ Heart.  The new Marbled Background stamp looks amazing in Pool Party ink.

Stampin' Cat Marbled Blooming' Heart Stamping' Up!

I die cut a Heart out of my card base then attached a beautiful Blooming’ Heart behind it.  I die cut another Blooming’ Heart out of Whisper White then used the small butterfly die from the Butterflies Thinlits to cut a butterfly out of my heart.  Then I attached that to a Powder Pink butterfly.  So the pattern on my butterfly is the same as the pattern of the heart.

Stampin' Cat Marbled Blooming' Heart Stamping' Up!

The sentiment is from Number of Years stamp set.  If you look really closely you’ll also see some Silver Metallic Thread behind the butterfly.

I love the Challenges at CTC.  I’d never really noticed this card in the catalogue before.  I like how this card turned out so much everyone will be making it in my  class this week.  I hope they like it as much as I do.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi, and welcome to my blog.  Today’s card is for the Colour INKspiration Challenge CI11.  The challenge colours are Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Marina Mist.  I feel right at home with these colours, especially on an overcast rainy day like today.

CTC 131 – Everyday Occasions – Pages 18-67

Stampin' Cat Wood Textures Eastern Medallions Stampin' Up!I haven’t submitted anything for CASEing the Catty Challenge for a few weeks as I’ve been super busy working towards a Stampin’ Day Retreat. A couple of my good SU friends and I are holding this event on 10th June.  I’ve surprised myself by having this under control and I’ve still got 5 days until the big event so I thought “let’s get back into the CTC Challenges”.

The crew at CASEing the Catty Design Team are looking for more Crew members.  You need to join in with their June Challenges and make sure you mention you’re interested in applying.  Well, I’m definitely interested.  I really like these challenges as you can CASE 100% from the Catalogue or you can use your creativity to come up with something completely different.

This weeks challenge is to CASE something from the Everyday Occasions section, pages 18-67, of the new 2017/2018 Annual Catalogue.

CTC131

I’ve chosen to CASE the “Shell” card on page 39.

Annual Catalogue p39

I don’t have the So Many Shells stamp set so I improvised.  I stamped the square floral image from Window Shopping onto some Whisper White card stock then die cut some patterned circles with Eastern Medallions Thinlits.

Stampin' Cat Wood Textures Eastern Medallions Stampin' Up!

I’ve used Wood Textures DSP as my background then I’ve used the Hardwood stamp on vellum and heat embossed the image with White embossing powder.

I’ve used Powder Pink, Soft Sky and Pumpkin Pie inks.  Powder Pink is a new 2017/2019 In Colour.  It’s such a delicate pretty pink.  I’ve also added a Linen Thread bow.

I just love how this card has turned out.  I hope you love it too.

Colour INKspiration Challenge CI10

CI10

I’ve designed a card for the latest Colour INkspiration Challenge CI10.  The Challenge requires you to use Cajun Craze, Island Indigo, Smoky Slate and Delightful Dijon.  We can also use any neutral colours and metallics.

Bouncing Brayer Stampin' Up!

I’ve used the Bouncing Brayer technique with Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon ink to create the background of the card.  I stamped the little bird from Swirly Bird in archival black ink and he’s sitting on a Island Indigo die cut branch from Everyday Jars.  My card base is Smoky Slate with a Basic Black matt.

I hope you like my project.  I’d love you to leave me a comment.
