CTC274 – Case a Masculine Card

CTC Sunday Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog. I hope you’ve been keeping warm this week. The temperature has been very cool at night and early mornings here in Queensland. It’s easy to find the warmest spot in the house, just find Marvi. Cats have a knack of finding warm spots.

This week at CASEing the Catty we are CASEing any masculine card in the Annual Catalogue. Coming up with masculine card designs can be challenging but our catalogue is full of wonderful inspiration. 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 chosen a card on page 128 of the Annual Catalogue which uses the Waterfront stamp set. I’ve had this set for a while but have not used it very much at all. I find it a bit daunting to “build” a scenery card but I’m really happy with how the card turned out.

I’ve kept fairly close to the original colours and design, adding a couple more layers of card stock and centering my image.

The card base is Pretty Peacock with a layer of Whisper White. I’ve added another layer of Pretty Peacock that’s been embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I’ve inked up the inside of this embossing folder with Gorgeous Grape then embossed another piece of Whisper White. How cool does that look?

I’ve used some Shimmery White card stock and created the sky with Night of Navy, Gorgeous Grape and Rococo Rose and my Aqua Painter. The mountains are stamped in Pretty Peacock, the land in Early Espresso, the water in Night of Navy and the trees in Memento Black. The sun is stamped in Whisper White then I’ve flicked the end of my Aqua Painter to create the “stars”.

Mr Marvi was “helping” me in my craft room while I was making this card. So it took twice as long to complete. Who can say no to that face?

CTC Sunday Challenge

Hey there, welcome to my blog. I can’t believe it’s Sunday night already, where did the weekend go? It’s been cool and overcast with a few showers of rain here in Queensland. Perfect crafting weather. Our challenge this week is to CASE the colours of the Playing With Patterns DSP. The colours are Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy, Purple Posy and Whisper White.

I’ve CASEd the shaker card in the top left hand corner on page 11 of the Annual Catalogue and managed to include all of the above colours.

Page 11

My card base is Night of Navy with a layer of Purple Posy Gingham DSP from the 2019-2021 In Colour paper stack. I’ve stamped my bunch of flower in Memento Black on some Whisper White card stock then coloured it with Blends. I stamped the flowers a second time on a scrap of card then fussy cut the tulips, coloured them then popped them up on dimensionals. I’ve used the new Jar Punch and co-ordinating Mason Jar Shaker Domes.

#stampin_cat #ctc273 #jarpunch #jarofflowers #masonjar #stampinup

I’ve added some retired Iridescent sequins to my jar. The Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon has been coloured with my Night of Navy Blend so my ribbon matches my card base. The sentiment is White Heat Embossed and is from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set.

Marvi was actually outside when I was taking photos of my card. He saw me through the window and was quite upset I was taking photos without him.

He quickly ran to the back door and came in through the pet door. Jumped up on the table and was ready for his photo.

CTC272 – Case The Flowers Of The Annual Catalogue

#stampin_cat #ctc272 #cherryblossoms #foreverblossoms #stampinup
CTC Sunday Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog. This week’s CASEing the Catty Challenge is to CASE the flowers of the Annual Catalogue. #CTC272 is only running for one week. There’s so many flower inspired creations in the Catty I had a hard time just choosing one. What will you share with us this week?

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 chose the yellow card on page 69, not because I really liked it (yellow is not my favourite colour) but because I could see it would look fabulous in colours that were more my taste.

Page 69

I changed the orientation of my card from portrait to landscape and also changed the colour from Bumblebee to Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Poppy Parade.

#stampin_cat #ctc272 #cherryblossoms #foreverblossoms #stampinup

I’ve used the Subtle Embossing Folder on the small piece of Sahara Sand card stock then positioned my Cherry Blossom branch and flowers around the bottom left corner, as in the sample card.

#stampin_cat #ctc272 #cherryblossoms #foreverblossoms #stampinup

The sentiment is from the Forever Blossoms stamp set and is White Heat Embossed on Soft Suede card stock. The flowers and branch are from the co-ordinating Cherry Blossoms Dies. I’ve added a few Champagne Rhinestones to give my card a little bling.

Marvi was a little disinterested in my card this week. He’d had a very busy day on Friday with the return of my card classes. He usually does a meet and greet at the front door so was probably tired after two classes in one day.
