CTC266 – Week 1 – Easter Sketch

#stampin_cat #ctc266 #jubileebeauty #parisianblossoms #stampinup

Hello and welcome to my blog. I hope everyone is practicing their social distancing and staying Coronavirus free. My household is doing well and doing our bit by grocery shopping for a friend who has self isolated after returning from overseas last week. I’ve also checked on my neighbours to make sure they’re OK.

On Wednesday night my downline, Cheryl, held a Skype card class. She put some card kits in the letter box and we did the class via Skype. It was a great night and it kept us crafting which in my case keeps me sane.

This week at CASEing the Catty we are CASEing the below sketch and making an Easter themed card. 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.

It’s a great sketch but I really struggled with the simplicity of it. My card is kind of similar, I’ve got an oval and a rectangular panel and it’s an Easter card so I hope you like the end result.

#stampin_cat #ctc266 #jubileebeauty #parisianblossoms #stampinup

My card base is Pool Party with a layer of Parisian Blossoms SDSP. I’ve used the Jubilee Beauty Dies in Whisper White to create the two panels. I’ve popped them up on Dimensionals to give some depth to the intricate detail of the die cut.

The flowers along the top are from the Birthday Jubilee stamp set and have been stamped in Black Memento Ink then coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I’ve also added two Silver Foil leaf die cuts and a Basic Rhinestone to the centre of the main flower. The sentiment is from Fable Friends and is stamped directly onto the SDSP in Bermuda Bay.

Marvi was happy to pose for photos today which must mean he likes my card.

CTC265 – Week 2 – Second Release Sale-a-bration

#stampin_cat #ctc265 #goldenhoneydsp #poppymoments #goldfoil #stampinup
CTC Sunday Challenge

Hello and welcome to my Blog. I hope everyone is feeling OK and staying safe from the Coronavirus. Marvi and I are both well, although I’m sure he’d love to have me working from home instead of the office. We are stopping all face to face contact with our clients from this week onwards. We’ll be using Skype, FaceTime, Email, and Zoom and if any staff members have been exposed to the virus we’ll all be in quarantine and working from home. Luckily I have a job which allows me to work from home if needed.

This week on CASEing the Catty we are into Week 2 of CASEing from the 2nd release SAB Catty. 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.

Today I’ve chosen to CASE the card on page 5.

I’ve changed the colours but otherwise kept to the same layout.

My card base is Basic Black with a layer of the gorgeous Golden Honey SDSP. I’ve added a Basic Black banner, a Very Vanilla Stitched So Sweetly rectangle and the large flower from the Poppy Moments Dies.

The “stamen” in the centre of the flower is die cut from some retired Black Glimmer Paper and the sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.

My assistant Marvi was happy to pose for a photo today. I told him if he was a good boy there might be a reward for him. I mentioned the word “bickie” and this was his reaction.

I’m using the card on page 6 as my inspiration this week.

I’ve started with a Basic Black card base with a layer of Peaceful Poppies DSP.

I’ve used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut four rectangles in Whisper White then layered Peaceful Poppies Elements over the top of the rectangles, coloured with Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends.

The “Birthday” sentiment is white heat embossed on Basic Black. I’ve also added a few Peaceful Poppies Sequins.

Marvi was happy to get outside and relax in the backyard after all the rain we’ve had. I’m not sure if he’s very interested in my card today.
