CTC260 – Case the January to June 2020 Mini Catalogue

#stampin_cat #ctc260 #paintedpoppies ##stampinup
CTC Sunday Challenge

Happy New Year everyone, thanks for joining us for a brand new year of CASEing the Catty. We are kicking off 2020 by CASEing from the new Mini Catalogue. There’s 75 pages of inspiration, I can’t wait to see what you CASE.

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 chosen the yellow and green card on page 29 as my inspiration. I love the effect of white heat embossing over the stamped image.

Page 29

I’ve changed the colours and used a different stamp set but the effect is the same.  Did you know that purple poppies are a symbol of remembrance for animals that served during wartime?

My card base is Basic Black with a layer of Whisper White. I’ve stamped the poppies in Gorgeous Grape then stamped the abstract stamp in Highland Heather over the top of the flowers. Then I added in some White Heat Embossed poppies, slightly off setting them.

I’ve added some Pool Party ink around the poppies with a sponge dauber. The sentiment is from the Forever Blossoms stamp set and is stamped in Gorgeous Grape on a narrow piece of Pool party card stock. To finish off my card I added some Metallic baker’s twine and Sequins from the SAB Catalogue.

Marvi was just chilling in the back yard while I was taking my photos. The look on his face may suggest I was disturbing him lol.

ESAD 2020 Mini Catalogue & Sale-a-Bration Blog Hop

#stampin_cat #esad #honeybee #goldenhoneydsp #sab #stampinup

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Tonight I’m hopping with 21 other talented demonstrators from Australia and New Zealand showcasing products from the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration Catalogue. We are going to give you a sneak peek of some of the beautiful new products available to purchase now.  You may have come from Sue Vine’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.

Honey Bee Bundle $72+  $8.75+  $17.50=$98.25    Golden Honey Specialty DSP FREE

Honey Bee Bundle $72+  $17+      $15.25=$104.25  Golden Honey Specialty DSP FREE

I’ve made three cards using the new Honey Bee Bundle and I’ve combined it with the Golden Honey Specialty DSP, which I got for free.

Did you know you could earn free products with every $90 you spend?  Here’s a couple of ways you can earn the Golden Honey Specialty DSP for free and CASE (copy and share everything) my cards.

All of my cards start with a card base of Basic Black with a layer of Gold Foil then Whisper White.  Three bees using the Detailed Bee Dies.

#stampin_cat #esad #honeybee #goldenhoneydsp #sab #stampinup

The top bee is die cut from the Golden Honey DSP, the middle bee is Gold Foil and the bee on the bottom is die cut in Basic Black card stock then I’ve paper pieced the gold pieces from the middle using some Glad Press N Seal.

For my second card I’ve die cut the bee hive from the DSP.  The bee’s are also directly die cut from the DSP, don’t you just love it when the dies co-ordinate with the DSP?

#stampin_cat #esad #honeybee #goldenhoneydsp #sab #stampinup

The Gold Foil honeycomb looks so cute peeking out from behind the bee hive and the gold bee’s look amazing in real life.

#stampin_cat #esad #honeybee #goldenhoneydsp #sab #stampinup

For my last card I’ve turned the bee hive upside down and turned it into a flower pot.  I think this is my favourite pattern in the DSP.

#stampin_cat #esad #honeybee #goldenhoneydsp #sab #stampinup

I’ve stamped the flowers from the Honey Bee stamp set directly onto my Whisper White card stock.  Then using Stazon Black Ink I’ve stamped the same flowers onto some Gold Foil then die cut and popped them up over the top of the original flowers.

Marvi’s all ready for a new year of posing with my cards.  Here he is relaxing with my Honey Bee cards and yes all the bee’s survived, he didn’t destroy any!!!
