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.

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.

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.

Social Stamping – Animals

#stampin_cat #socialstamping #ninelives #catpunch #washi #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.

This weeks theme is “Animals” so I just had to make a card with a cat on it using the Nine Lives Stamp set and matching Cat Punch.

#stampin_cat #socialstamping #ninelives #catpunch #washi #stampinup

My card base is Night of Navy with a layer of Seaside Spray then I’ve embossed a piece of Crumb Cake with the new Old World Paper Embossing Folder. I added a little ink to the inside of the embossing folder to create a crumpled brown paper sort of look, just like the brown paper we used to get in our SU delivery boxes. I found a great YouTube video from Erica Cerwin showing how to make the cardboard box.

I added some Follow Your Art Washi Tape to the box so it looked like a SU delivery. The cat, Marvi, has been stamped on Crumb Cake card stock in Memento Black Ink and coloured with Smoky Slate and Pumpkin Pie Blends. Marvi has so many colours in his fur it was hard to get the right look.

On the inside of the card I have some Seaside Spray with a layer of Whisper White. I added a little strip of embossed Crumb Cake along the bottom and stamped the sentiment and some little hearts.

Marvi loves to sit in boxes but today he wasn’t keen on posing for photos. The photo above is an old photo of him in a SU box. The photo below is why he wasn’t keen on posing today, snug as a bug in a rug. This is his favourite SU box which he’s had for many years.

CTC270 – Week 1 – Favourite Retiring Punch or Dies

#stampin_cat #ctc270 #retiringdies #seasonallayers #seasons #stampinup

Hello and welcome to my blog. Thanks for joining me for CASEing the Catty. This week the challenge is to create a project using your favourite retiring punches or dies. I’m sure you have a favourite retiring product in your craft room and we’d love to see what you’ll create.

I’ve used the very versatile Seasonal Layers Dies, what’s not to love about these dies, four seasons in one die set. These dies have been used on many of my cards over the years and I think they will still stay on my craft room shelf for a while, even thought they have retired.

I’ve created four cards, one for every season. I didn’t quite manage to use all 17 dies in this set but if I’d had more time to create I probably could have.

The first card is a summer card using the cute little deck chair. Crumb Cake, Balmy Blue and Pacific Point with some retiring Burlap Ribbon and Baker’s Twine. The Stitched Circle has been watercolored with my Aqua Painter.

My Autumn card uses the three leaf dies. Pretty Peacock, Gold Foil and Perennial Essence DSP and a sentiment from Label Me Bold.

I’ve used two of the snowflake dies for my winter card even though Christmas is in summer here in Australia. Whisper White, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Parisian Blossoms SDSP.

#stampin_cat #ctc270 #retiringdies #seasonallayers #seasons #stampinup

My final card is a Spring card using Old Olive, Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green and Whisper White. I’ve also used the sentiment from the co-ordinating stamp set Colourful Seasons.

Marvi definitely liked the Summer card the most, the Baker’s Twine didn’t stand a chance. Here’s an action pic of the twine bow being ripped off the card.
