CTC147 – Christmas Around The World – Pages 28-35

Hello and welcome to another CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop.  This week we are CASEing pages 28-35, Christmas Around the World.  You may have hopped over to me from Rose, thanks for continuing on.

CTC147

I’ve picked the card on the left hand side of page 35.  Here is my lovely assistant, Marvi, doing his best to point to the card.

Is this better?

Holiday p35

 

I decided to change the colours and not make this card in the tradition red and green.

Stampin' Cat CTC147 Merry Music

As you know my favourite colours are black and white.  Add in a touch of silver and a hint of red and you have a very elegant card.

Stampin' Cat CTC147 Merry Music

 

I’ve used Merry Music Specialty DSP with a piece of Year of Cheer Washi Tape down each side.

I heat embossed the sentiment from Oh, What Fun stamp set and added a cute little Red Glimmer Star.

Next on tonight’s hop is Rachel.  I know you’re going to just love her card.

Stampin' Cat CI17 Seasonal Layers

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Today’s card is for the Colour Inkspiration Challenge CI17.  The challenge is to create a card using Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist, Tempting Turquoise and Flirty Flamingo.  We can also use any neutrals such as Basic Black, Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Metallics.

These are not colours I would normally put together but I’m quite happy with my final design.

Stampin' Cat CI17 Seasonal Layers

I’ve used the Ticket Tear Border behind the sentiment.  The flowers are from Seasonal Layers Thinlits and the DSP is Eastern Palace.

CTC146 – Season of Glitz – Pages 20-27

It’s Sunday already and that means it’s CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop time.  I’ve spent the day with my family today celebrating my Mum’s Birthday.  We had Lunch at the local Tavern followed by Birthday Cake.  It was a great day.

This week we are CASEing the Season of Glitz section, pages 20-27.

CTC146

I’ve CASEd the card on page 24.

Holiday Catalogue Page 24

Again I’ve changed the colour and the orientation of the card.

Stampin' Cat CTC146 Beachy Little Christmas

I’ve used Beachy Little Christmas stamp set.  I love the palm trees and beach shack, it’s so Australian.

Stampin' Cat CTC146 Beachy Little Christmas

I stamped the Beach Shack in versa mark then embossed it in silver and fussy cut it.  I used some mini dimensionals to pop it up so it looked like it was sitting on the sand.

You can’t really see in my photo but I’ve used Clear Wink of Stella on the Christmas lights wrapped around the palm trees.

Next up is Rose.  Just click on the next button to have a look at her beautiful card.

CTC145 – Merry Little Christmas – Pages 10-19

Hi and welcome to another CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop.  It’s been another exciting week at my house.  A few weeks ago I was evacuated from my home because of a bush fire.  This week I was catching a snake in my bathroom.  My lovely assistant, Marvi, thought he’d bring me a gift!!!  I think a lot of snakes have lost their homes after the bushfire as many of my neighbours have seen snakes around our neighbourhood.  Luckily it was only a harmless tree snake.

You may have just hopped over from Fi, thanks for continuing on with me.  This week we are CASEing the Merry Little Christmas section, pages 10-19 of the new 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

CTC145

I’ve chosen to CASE the top right card on page 14.

2017 Holiday Catalogue Page 14

2017 Holiday Catalogue Page 14

My favourite colours are black and white and my favourite Stampin’ Up! colour is Old Olive.  When I saw the Merry Little Christmas DSP I new I had to have some.  My three favourite colours in a DSP………..it’s like Stampin’ Up! have made it especially for me lol.

Stampin' Cat CTC145 Carols of Christmas

I’ve changed the colours and the orientation of the card.

Stampin' Cat CTC145 Carols of Christmas

How cute is this little gold deer?  He’s from the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies.   Old Olive 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon was a perfect addition.

Stampin' Cat CTC145 Carols of Christmas

I’ve sponged White Craft Stampin’ Ink around my trees.  The Black and White DSP is the new Merry Music Specialty DSP.

I hope you like my card today.  Now it’s time to welcome back Kelly and hop over and check out her amazing card.

JOS #005 Challenge – The Letter “J”

JOS #005

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Today’s card is for The Joy of Sets Challenge #005 – The Letter “J”.   You may use any Stampin’ Up! stamp set, new or retired, but there’s a twist.   There will be a new letter selected each fortnight and that letter must be in the name of the stamp set you use.  For this challenge the letter is “J”.

I only have one stamp set that fits this criteria and it’s called Jar of Love.

Stampin' Cat JOS #005 Jar of Love

I’ve made a waterfall card using Sweet Sugarplum card stock and the now retired Blooms and Bliss DSP.

When you pull on the ribbon each white panel flips over to reveal something different in the jar.  It’s very hard to take a video of this when you are home by yourself.  You have to hold the card with one hand, pull the ribbon with another hand……….hang on, there’s no hands left to hold the camera!!!

Photo’s will just have to do.

CTC144 – Quilted Christmas – Pages 4-9

Stampin' Cat CTC144 Quilted Christmas

Hello everyone and welcome to another CASEing the Catty Crew Blog Hop.  We are a group of demonstrators who love to take our inspiration from the amazing Stampin’ Up! Catalogues.  Each week we choose a different section of the Catalogue to CASE.

This week we are CASEing Quilted Christmas pages 4-9 from the new 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  You may have hopped over to me from Monique.  How gorgeous was her card?  Be sure to hop around to all of the blogs, you won’t want to miss a single project.

CTC144

I’ve chosen to CASE the red card at the top of our graphic.

2017 Holiday Catalogue Page 4

 

I’ve layered the Star Quilt shape three times in Basic Black, Whisper White and Silver Foil card.  Traditionally these star’s would have card/fabric pieced into them but I’ve kept them just as an outline.

Stampin' Cat CTC144 Quilted Christmas

 

I love the stitched pattern on the Quilted Christmas DSP.  It’s a very subtle pattern and matches the design of my stars perfectly.

Stampin' Cat CTC144 Quilted Christmas

I’ve used a white gel pen to add a stitched look to my holly leaves and my holly is punch in Red Glimmer Paper with the Holly Berry Builder Punch.

Marvi CTC144

I think Marvi was checking out the new Quilted Christmas Ribbon or maybe he was trying to pull off my stars.

I do like the traditional red and green Christmas colour scheme but I wanted to use this bundle with my favourite DSP from the Holiday Catalogue, Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I’ve made two versions of this card so I could use the positive and the negative of the stars.  I die cut one in Year of Cheer DSP and the other in the new Champagne Foil Sheets.

This one uses the DSP as the star.

Colour INKspiration Challenge CI16

Stampin' Cat CI16 Cheers to the Year

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Today’s card is for the Colour INKspiration Challenge CI16.  The colours are Whisper White, Dapper Denim, Sahara Sand and Basic Gray.  We can also use any neutrals such as Basic Black, Crumb Cake and Metallics.

CI16

I really like these colours together and I wish Stampin’ Up! had a DSP in these tones.  Sadly they don’t so I made my own using the new Cheers to the Year stamp set.

Stampin' Cat CI16 Cheers to the Year

I love the stamped snowflakes in these colours.

Stampin' Cat CI16 Cheers to the Year

I’ve also used the new Foil Snowflakes.  These are so cute.  I’ve actually cut the centre out of one of them and adhered it to my card.  It would have been lost behind the circles anyway.

Stampin' Cat CI16 Cheers to the Year

I’ve finished off the centre of my snowflake with a Gold Faceted Gem.  The sentiment is from Santa’s Sleigh.

Marvi CI16

Marvi was a bit tired for the photo shoot today.  How do my teeth look Aunty Megan?

I hope you like my card today.
