CTC Sunday Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog.  The 2019 Holiday Catalogue is only 10 days away from being live and next week we’ll be CASEing from the new Catalogue but this week on CASEing the Catty we are CASEing a card and turning it into a 3D project.

You may have arrived here from Siobhan’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 recently purchased the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and I love all the patterns on this paper so the card on the far right of page 75 of the Annual Catalogue was my starting off point.

I’d seen a great YouTube video by Terri Gaines on how she turned the Mini Shipping Boxes into a Note Card Holder and thought this would be perfect for my 3D project.  You can check out her video by clicking on her name.

I love how this Note Card Holder and matching Note Cards has turned out.  I’ve used Blueberry Bushell and Whisper White card stock, Butterfly Gala stamp set and Blueberry Bushell 1/8″ Grossgrain Ribbon.

ESAD 2019 Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek Blog Hop

ESAD

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Tonight I’m hopping with 24 other talented demonstrators from Australia and New Zealand showcasing new products from the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.  We are going to give you a sneak peek of some of the beautiful new products available from 4th September.  You may have come from Bronwyn Eastley’s amazing project, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you visit all the Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.  There’s also a list of participants at the bottom of my Blog incase you get lost along the way.

I’ve chosen to mix and match a few new products from different suites tonight, combining Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP, Christmas Gleaming stamp set and matching Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack and the gorgeous new Mercury Glass Designer Acetate.

#stampin_cat #esad #mercuryglass #feelslikefrost #gleamingornaments #stampinup

I’ve created the same design in 3 different colours.  The Feels Like Frost DSP is stunning, it has photographic imagery on one side and hand drawn designs with silver foil on the other side.  I’ve used the same pattern of silver foil on all three cards but used three different pieces of the photographic imagery.

#stampin_cat #esad #mercuryglass #feelslikefrost #gleamingornaments #stampinup

Basic Black, Smoky Slate and Whisper White.

#stampin_cat #esad #mercuryglass #feelslikefrost #gleamingornaments #stampinup

Pretty Peacock, Crumb Cake and Whisper White.

#stampin_cat #esad #mercuryglass #feelslikefrost #gleamingornaments #stampinup

Seaside Spray, Smoky Slate and Whisper White.

I’ve punched the Ornaments from Mercury Glass Designer Acetate and layered that onto an Ornament in the co-ordinating coloured card stock.  I’ve also added a sprinkling of Snowflake Sequins and I’ve Silver Heat Embossed the sentiment.

Which colour is your favourite?  I’m leaning towards Seaside Spray.

CTC242 – Case Woven Threads DSP

 

#stampin_cat #ctc242 #ctc #woventhreadssuite #prettypeacock #stampinup

CTC Sunday Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog.  This week at CASEing the Catty we are CASEing the colours of the Woven Threads DSP (designer series paper) and using inspiration from the layouts from pages 12-14.

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.

#stampin_cat #ctc242 #ctc #woventhreadssuite #prettypeacock #stampinup

The colours are Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Sahara Sand, Seaside Spray, Terracotta Tile and Whisper White.

Page 12

I’ve used the “forever” card on the left hand side of page 12 for my inspiration and used Pretty Peacock and Sahara Sand as my colours.

#stampin_cat #ctc242 #ctc #woventhreadssuite #prettypeacock #stampinup

I think my new favourite colour is Pretty Peacock (sorry Old Olive).  It co-ordinates with so many colours, it’s a must have In Colour.  It goes perfectly with Sahara Sand don’t you think?  I’ve used my Stamparatus and the Woven Heirlooms stamp set to create the background stamping behind my frame.  The sentiment has been stamped on some Retired Wood Textures DSP.

#stampin_cat #ctc242 #ctc #woventhreadssuite #prettypeacock #stampinup

I’ve stamped 2 daisies on vellum and punched some leaves with the Leaf Punch.  There’s also a punched Sprig from Sparkle Glimmer Paper and I’ve coloured it with a Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend.  I’ve finished my card off with some Sahara Sand Woven Threads Trim, this trim is soooooo gorgeous.

I snapped a quick shot of Marvi just before he sneezed, luckily the card survived.
