CTC259 – Case Anything From the 2019 Holiday Catalogue

#stampin_cat #ctc259 #frostedframesdies #noblepeacock #stampinup

CTC Sunday Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Sunday night means it’s time for CASEing the Catty.  This will be our last blog hop for the year.  We’re looking forward to you joining us in the new year as we share some inspiration from the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue and the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue.

This week we get to CASE absolutely anything from the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.  With so much choice, how do you choose something to CASE?  You may have hopped over from Siobhan’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 automatically turned to my favourite products in the catalogue, the Feels Like Frost Suite.  I’ve nearly used two whole packets of Feels Like Frost DSP, I love it that much.  My eye was drawn to the card at the top of page 40.

With this CASE my focus was on the Frosted Frames Dies rather than the DSP.  The card in the catalogue is fairly simple but I wanted to step it up and add some richness and elegance to it.

#stampin_cat #ctc259 #frostedframesdies #noblepeacock #stampinup

My card base is Basic Gray then I’ve added a layer of Noble Peacock Specialty DSP, which has a thin border of Smokey Slate top and bottom.  The main die cut piece is also Basic Gray with a layer of Smoky Slate.  I’ve added a couple of Pretty Peacock leaves under my sentiment layer.

#stampin_cat #ctc259 #frostedframesdies #noblepeacock #stampinup

The sentiment is from Frosted Foliage and is stamped in Pretty Peacock.  I’ve also added a couple of Champagne Foil snowflakes.  It doesn’t really look anything like the card I took my inspiration from but that’s the beauty of CASEing the Catty, it doesn’t need to.  We made this card in my card class on Friday and everyone loved it.

CTC Sunday Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Can you believe Christmas is just over 2 weeks away?  I haven’t even put my tree up yet!!!

This week at CASEing the Catty we are CASEing form the Wrapped In Plaid Suite, pages 12-17. You may have hopped over from Julia’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 CASEed this card on page 16 of the Holiday Catalogue.

page 16

I’ve made my card the regular C6 size and kept to the same basic layout.

#stampin_cat #ctc258 #christmaslayersdies #ittybittychristmas #stampinup

My card base is Crumb Cake with a layer of Real Red.  On a separate piece of Crumb Cake I’ve used a die cut from the Christmas Layers Dies as a stencil and sponged some Celestial Copper Metallic Ink over it.  It creates such a lovely looking background.

#stampin_cat #ctc258 #christmaslayersdies #ittybittychristmas #stampinup

I’ve used the same die on some Real Red Glimmer Paper and paper pieced the snowflakes into the Copper die cut.  The greeting is from Itty Bitty Christmas and is White Heat Embossed on Garden Green card stock.

Mr Marvi was happy to pose again this week, as long as he was able to sit on the kitchen bench and not get into trouble.  Five minutes prior to this photo he was in the enviro bag behind him but I wasn’t quick enough with the camera.

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

CTC257 – Kids & Babies – Pages 98-105

#stampin_cat #ctc257 #animalouting #stampinup

CTC Sunday Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog.  It’s Sunday evening again which means it’s time for Caseing the Catty Blog Hop.  This week we are CASEing from the Kids & Babies section, pages 98-105.  You may have hopped over from Kathryn’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 chosen the kangaroo card on page 102 for my inspiration this week.

page 102

I’ve kept the layout quite similar but changed the kangaroo for a rhino with a little bird on his horn.

#stampin_cat #ctc257 #animalouting #stampinup

My card base is Petal Pink with a layer of polka dot Bird Ballad DSP.  I’ve die cut a Pool Party Layering Square and adhered it behind a Whisper White piece, die cut with Animal Friends.  The rhino is sitting on a piece of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.

#stampin_cat #ctc257 #animalouting #stampinup

I’ve used Support Ribbon Framelits and Stitched Labels Framelits for the hearts.  The sentiment is from Animal Outing and is stamped in Bermuda Bay on a piece of Pool Party card stock.

Here’s Marvi with his best pose for today.  Normally he’s not allowed on the kitchen bench but when it’s for photos I guess we can bend the rules.

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