CTC256 – Case an Annual Catty Layout and Give It a Holiday Twist

#stampin_cat #ctc256 #brightlygleaming #christmasholly #stampinup

CTC Sunday Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog.  I didn’t hop last week as I was in Sydney for Stampin’ Up! On Stage.  I had such a great long weekend away with fabulous company, great food and of course some stamping.

This week at CASEing the Catty we are CASEing anything from the Annual Catty and giving it a Holiday Twist.  I don’t want to alarm you but Christmas is only one month away!!!  Have you started sending Christmas cards yet?  If you like any of the cards I share please message me and I’ll post one out to you.

Christmas inspiration is all around you and I’m sure the crew have some fabulous projects to share with you this week.  You may have hopped over from Rachel’s blog, make sure you visit all the Design Team’s Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.

I’ve used the card on the far right of page 41 of the Annual Catalogue for my inspiration this week.

I’ve changed the colour to Pretty Peacock but kept to the same basic layout.

#stampin_cat #ctc256 #brightlygleaming #christmasholly #stampinup

I’ve used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits to die cut the front of my card then I’ve added a piece of Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP to the rectangle.  I’ve stamped the flourish from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set in Pretty Peacock.  The holly has been Copper Heat Embossed then coloured with Pretty Peacock and Real Red Stampin’ Blends.

#stampin_cat #ctc256 #brightlygleaming #christmasholly #stampinup

The sentiment is also Copper Heat Embossed and I’ve added some Fine Tip Glue to the holly to give it some shine.

I’ve added another holly leaf and a Copper Embossed sentiment to the inside of the card.

My assistant, Marvi, was on hand for the photo shoot today.  I’m not sure if he liked my card or it bored him to sleep lol.

He did have a big day on Friday.  I had two classes and there were so many people to meet and greet I think he wore himself out.

CTC254 – Case a Layout on Page 22

#stampin_cat #ctc254 #pinetreepunch #wrappedinplaid #stampinup

CTC Sunday Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog.  We’ve had such hot and windy weather here on the Sunshine Coast this week.  There’s bushfires at Cooroibah and Tewantin at the moment and several bushfires in NSW, I hope everyone is OK and stays safe.

This week at CASEing the Catty we are CASEing a layout from page 22 of the Holiday Catalogue. You may have hopped over from Michelle’s blog.  Make sure you visit all the Design Team’s Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.

I’ve CASEd the penguin card in the bottom right hand corner of the above picture.  Originally I made this card for #CTC245 but I didn’t make it into the blog hop because I was holidaying in Cairns.  So I thought I’d use it this week because I really liked how it turned out and I’ve used a really cool technique to create the stars on the background.

#stampin_cat #ctc254 #pinetreepunch #wrappedinplaid #stampinup

My card base is Night of Navy with a layer of Whisper White.  On a separate piece of Whisper White I’ve used my Sponge Brayer and created a background with Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy and Shaded Spruce.  I’ve die cut a circle from Sparkle Glimmer Paper then added a Gold Foil and Wrapped In Plaid Pine Tree.

#stampin_cat #ctc254 #pinetreepunch #wrappedinplaid #stampinup

For the background stars I’ve simply sprayed my stamp, from So Many Stars, with Stampin’ Mist Stamp Cleaner then stamped it onto my brayered card stock.  I accidentally “inked” up my stamp on my Stampin’ Scrub instead of my ink pad and discovered that the Stampin’ Mist Cleaner actually lifts the ink off the brayered card stock.  So I tried it again, this time actually spraying the stamp and I got this very cool result.  When you first stamp your stamp it doesn’t look like anything is happening but as it dries the colour lifts off.  I’ve also added a few Snowflake Sequins and retired Metallic Sequins and the greeting is Gold Heat Embossed on Vellum.

CTC 253 – Come to Gather Suite – Pages 46-51

#stampin_cat #ctc253 #somanystars #puffpaint #stampinup

CTC Sunday Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog.  I’ve just got back from a quick trip to the Gold Coast, I went to see Suzi Quatro perform at the Star Casino.  She still knows how to rock at the unbelievable age of 69, it was a great show.

This week at CASEing the Catty we are CASEing from the “Come to Gather” Suite, pages 46 -51.  You may have hopped over from Shannon’s blog.  Make sure you visit all the Design Team’s Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.

CTC253

I’ve chosen to CASE the background of the card on page 51 using the new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint.

Page 51

My card base is Sahara Sand layered with an embossed piece of Soft Suede.  I’ve used the Bricks & Mortar 3D embossing folder.  Then I’ve used the Puff Paint to give my “Brick Wall” a very distressed and weathered look. Have you tried the Puff Paint yet?  It’s so much fun to work with, I love the effect it has given to my brick wall.

#stampin_cat #ctc253 #somanystars #puffpaint #stampinup

I’ve die cut a few different sizes of So Many Stars and layered them all together to create the main star embellishment.

#stampin_cat #ctc253 #somanystars #puffpaint #stampinup

The Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements look so beautiful and shiny, I’ve layered a couple of smaller stars over the top then offset them.

Marvi was happy to pose for a photo this week.  Luckily I took the photos before I left him for a couple of days.  His Grandma and Grandpa took great care of him while I was away.
