CTC 271 – Week 1 – Case the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue Cover

CTC Sunday Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog. It’s been much cooler weather here in Queensland this last week with sunny days and cool nights. Mr Marvi has been seeking the sun during the day and seeking the warmth of my bed during the night. I’ve noticed that he snores most nights but not that loud that it keeps me awake.

There’s only 3 days until Stampin’ Up! launch their new 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue. If you don’t have a demonstrator and would like a copy of the Catty please let me know. This week at CASEing the Catty we’re excited to give you a sneak peek of the Catty, by CASEing the front cover. You may have hopped over from Rebecca’s blog, make sure you visit all the Design Team’s Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.

#CTC271

I’ve CASEd the card on the right hand side of the cover, using some fabulous new products.

#stampincat #ctc271 #ingoodtaste #pickapunch #lovelyyou #stampinup

My card base is Thick Whisper White with a layer of Gray Granite. Next I’ve added some new In Good Taste DSP, using the wooden plank image to replicate the stripes of colour on the sample card. This gorgeous DSP has many photographic images and visual textures, I can see I’ll be using a lot of this DSP. I’ve White Heat Embossed a couple of leaf images from the new stamp set, Lovely You.

#stampincat #ctc271 #ingoodtaste #pickapunch #lovelyyou #stampinup

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and is stamped in Gray Granite then punched with the new Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. This brand new punch is six punches in one. It has two designs, three widths and you can use any length. How convenient and versatile is that!!! I’ve added a few Woven Threads Sequins to finish off my card.

The inside of the card has a layer of Gray Granite then Whisper White. I’ve stamped the greeting and leaf from Lovely You in Gray Granite.

Marvi didn’t try to destroy my card this week so that must mean he likes it.

Social Stamping – Hearts

#stampin_cat #socialstamping #followyourart #minipizzabox #stampinup
#socialstamping

Hello and welcome to my blog. Thanks for joining me for another week of #socialstamping, hosted by the wonderful Kelly Kent. You can work your way through the host by clicking on the next button at the bottom of the post or you can click here to go back to Kelly’s post where there’s a list of participants so you can continue your way around.

Our theme this week is “Hearts”. I looked through my extensive collection of SU stamps and dies only to realise I did not have any hearts. Can you believe it, I’m heartless!!! So I’ve added hearts to my wish list and came up with Plan B. What else could I use? I realised the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit has hearts in it, phew, I’ve got hearts.

#stampin_cat #socialstamping #followyourart #minipizzabox #stampinup

I was thinking these cute little felt hearts might get a bit lost on a standard size card so I decided to make note cards instead.

#stampin_cat #socialstamping #followyourart #minipizzabox #stampinup

And of course I needed a matching Mini Pizza Box and envelopes to go with my note cards.

I’ve made a little window for my hearts to sit in then each note card has “for you” stamped in the same colour as the card stock. I’ve also added some Follow Your Art Washi Tape to the cards and envelopes.

I’ve taught Marvi to sit and wait before I feed him, seems to work when I photograph him too. As long as he gets a treat when we’re finished he’s happy to co-operate, most days anyway lol.

CTC270 – Week 2 – Favourite Retiring Punch or Dies

#stampin_cat #ctc270 #delicatelaceedgelits #2020-2022incolours #foreverfern #forevergreenery #stampinup
CTC Sunday Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog. Thanks for joining me for CASEing the Catty. It’s week 2 and the challenge is to create a project using your favourite retiring punches or dies. It’s been a cold weekend here in Queensland with a top temperature of only 17 degrees on Saturday and 20 degrees on Sunday. 20 degrees and under is cold for me, I even had to put the doona back on the bed. But it’s perfect crafting weather and I’m sure you have a favourite retiring product in your craft room. We’d love to see what you create.

You may have hopped over from Rebecca’s blog, make sure you visit all the Design Team’s Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.

#CTC270

I’ve used the retiring Delicate Lace Edgelits and as there’s three different edgelits I’ve made three different cards. I’ve also used 3 out of 5 of the new 2020-2022 In Colours. These dies are still available to purchase at the discounted price of $37.50, which make them great value.

I’ve used the sweet little scallops on the Scalloped Note cards, on page 34 of the Annual catalogue, as my inspiration.

My first card uses Smoky Slate and Misty Moonlight card stock. I’ve stamped the leaves from the new Forever Fern stamp set and added some co-ordinating Misty Moonlight 1/4″ Ribbon and 2020-2022 In Colour DSP.

The next card uses Just Jade as a card base with some Whisper White and some beautiful new Forever Greenery DSP. I’ve also added some co-ordinating ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

#stampin_cat #ctc270 #delicatelaceedgelits #2020-2022incolours #foreverfern #forevergreenery #stampinup

The last card, which I think is my favourite, uses Bumblebee, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla card stock and some new In Good Taste DSP. The leaves are stamped in Crumb Cake and are from the new stamp set called Forever Fern. There’s also a very cute co-ordinating Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon.

I’m not sure if Marvi has a favourite this week. He was more interested in the mug of hot chocolate that was sitting on my craft desk. I’m sure he was hoping to get a taste lol.
