CTC Sunday Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog.  It’s been a wonderful week here in Queensland.  The temperature has finally cooled down to just under the 30 degree mark and we’ve finally had some rain.  I don’t mind at all being woken up in the middle of the night to the sound of rain on the roof.

This week at CASEing the Catty we are CASEing from the Gingham Gala section, pages 34-37.  You may have arrived here from Michelle’s gorgeous creation, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you visit all the Design Team’s Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.

I’ve taken my inspiration from the Humming Bird card on page 36.

2019_OCC_P36A

I’ve changed the colours and used a different image but I think you’ll be able to see where I was going with this card.

#stampin_cat #ctc219 #dragonflydreams #grapefruitgrovefoilsheet #diy #handmadecard #stampinup

My card base is Basic Gray then on a piece of water colour paper I’ve die cut the diamond pattern with a die from Eclectic Layers Thinlits then added a water colour wash in Grapefruit Grove.  I’ve used a Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker and Wink Of Stella to add some “splatter” to the background.

#stampin_cat #ctc219 #dragonflydreams #grapefruitgrovefoilsheet #diy #handmadecard #stampinup

The Dragonfly has been die cut in Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheet and layered onto a Basic Gray Dragonfly.  The sentiment is from Dragonfly Dreams and is stamped on Petal Pink card stock.  I’ve added some Very Vanilla Solid Baker’s Twine and some Iridescent Sequins.

ESAD

Hello and welcome to my blog.  The ESAD March 2019 Blog Hop is the first of two Blog Hops I’m participating in tonight.  I’m hopping with 17 other fabulous demonstrators showcasing the 2019 Occasions and SAB Catalogues.  You may have come from Siobhan’s amazing project, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you visit all the Design Team’s Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.

Tonight I’m using the Needlepoint Nook Suite and teaming it up with the Butterfly Elements , free with any $90 purchase.  Who doesn’t like free things, I know I sure do.

I started out making just one card but I liked the layout so much I thought I’d try it in a few different colours.  Which one is your favourite?

The first card is using the pretty flowery DSP from Needlepoint Nook with the sentiment stamped on vellum.  I just love the floral stitching design on the background.

For the next three cards I’ve used the solid bolder side of the DSP.  This one is Night of Navy.

And Poppy Parade

I’ve used up most the the Butterfly Elements on other cards but I had plenty of flowers and leaves left over so I’ve added one of each of them to all my cards.  The sentiments are White Heat Embossed on the last three cards.

My lovely assistant Marvi likes to pose for photos, especially for the ESAD Blog Hops.  He definitely thinks it’s all about him and not the cards.  He struck a lovely pose today but as soon as my back was turned………….

Ha Ha, look what I did Mum!  Can you see him laughing at me?

It’s time to hop over and see what lovely Monique has created.

CTC218 – Sale-a-bration

#stampin_cat #ctc218 #detailedwithlove #diy #handmadecard #stampinup

CTC Sunday Challenge

Welcome to another CASEing the Catty Blog Hop.  This week our inspiration is to CASE from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.  You may have arrived here from Monique’s gorgeous creation, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you visit all the Design Team’s Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.

CTC218

This week I’ve chosen to CASE a card from the Sale-a-bration 2nd release catalogue.

SAB 2

I’ve CASEd the corner border on the card rather than the actual card.

#stampin_cat #ctc218 #detailedwithlove #sab #diy #handmadecard #stampinup

My card base is Crumb Cake with another Crumb Cake layer that’s been embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  My corner borders are stamped with the Detailed With Love stamp set and also punched with the Detailed Trio Punch.

#stampin_cat #ctc218 #detailedwithlove #sab #diy #handmadecard #stampinup

The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake and has two layers of ribbon behind it.  Crumb Cake 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon and Black/Silver 1/4″ Striped Metallic Ribbon.

Marvi

 

Marvi, my assistant, was too sleepy for photos today.  He decided the chair in my craft room was very comfortable.

Next up tonight is Julia’s beautiful project.  Just click on the “Next” button to hop right over.
