CTC196 – Santa’s Workshop – Pages 18-27

Stampin' Cat CTC196 Festive Farmhouse Elements Merry Christmas To All Stampin' Up!

Welcome to another CASEing the Catty Blog Hop.  This week our inspiration comes from the Santa’s Workshop section, pages 18-27 of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.   You may have arrived here from Fi’s gorgeous creation, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you visit all the Design Team’s Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.

I decided to CASE the “Merry Warm Wishes” card on page 24.

This card uses the fabulous new Tags & Tidings stamp set.  Unfortunately it’s still on my wish list so I used the Marbled Background stamp instead.

I painted the Marbled stamp with Frost White Shimmer Paint using an old paint brush.  I’ve used Crumb Cake card stock with a layer of Basic Black behind it.

I’ve added some Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape then a sentiment from Merry Christmas To All, stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  I’ve used the word “Merry”, a Festive Farmhouse Element, and painted it with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.  The stars and tree are also Festive Farmhouse Elements.

Marvi didn’t like me showing everyone his big fat tummy last week so he posed for a better photo this week.

CTC195 – Festive Farmhouse – Pages 12-17

Stampin' Cat CTC195 Joyous Noel Stampin' Up!

Welcome to this week’s CASEing the Catty Blog Hop.  This week our inspiration comes from the Festive Farmhouse section, pages 12-17 of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.   You may have arrived here from Monique’s gorgeous creation, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you visit all the Design Team’s Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.

The 2018 Holiday Catalogue has been live for a few days now.  What’s your favourite suite?  There’s lots to love in the Festive Farmhouse Suite.

2018 Holiday Catalogue

I’ve used the “Merry Christmas ” card in the top right hand corner of page 12 as my inspiration this week.  Here’s a closer look.

I don’t actually have any of the products used in this sample so here is my version of this card using what I have.  That’s what’s so great about CASEing the Catty, you can use what you’ve got to re-create the samples.

My card base is Tranquil Tide with a layer of Grey Granite which has been embossed with the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder.  I’ve got some Copper Foil peeking out from behind the Grey Granite.  Next I’ve layered two pieces of the gorgeous new Tranquil Tide 1/4″ Velvet Ribbon.

I have several layers behind my sentiment.  First I fussy cut the wreath image from Petal Promenade DSP, a Stitched Shape Square in Gray Granite, a square of Joyous Noel Specialty DSP, a Stitched Label Circle in Tranquil Tide, a sliver of Tranquil Tide Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper then the sentiment from Peaceful Noel stamped in Tranquil Tide.  I’ve also added a tiny bow of Glimmer Paper die cut from Bouquet Bunch Framelits.

My assistant, Marvi, was not wanting to help today.  He really wanted me to rub his tummy instead.

ESAD 2018 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

Stampin' Cat ESAD Dashing Deer Shimmer Paint Stampin' Up!

ESAD 2018 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my Blog.  It’s a busy night as I’m participating in two Blog Hop’s tonight.  The first Hop is with ESAD.  What is ESAD I hear you ask?

ESAD

I’m joined by 25 lovely Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from Australia and New Zealand and we’re going to bring you some Christmas inspiration using new products from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  You may have hopped over from the lovely Katrina Duffell, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you complete the full Hop, there’s a Participant List at the end of my post just in case you get lost along the way.

2018 Holiday Catalogue

The 2018 Holiday Catalogue starts on the 5th of September and runs until the 2nd of January 2019.  The first thing on my wish list was the Dashing Deer Bundle and the Shimmer Paint so I thought I’d combine these two items for my project today.

Stampin' Cat ESAD Dashing Deer Shimmer Paint Stampin' Up!

I’ve made four cards as there’s four colours of Shimmer Paint.

Bright Copper Shimmer Paint

I’ve inked up the antlers with my Black Ink Pad then I’ve painted the Shimmer Paint directly onto my stamp with a small paint brush then stamped it onto my card stock.  I’ve used Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Gold Foil and Copper Foil.

Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint

I’ve painted the whole stamp with Shimmer Paint for these two cards.  I’ve used Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Silver Foil and Champagne Foil.  The little bows on the reindeer’s necks are die cut from the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper and the sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.

It’s hard to photograph the Shimmer on the cards.  They look much better in real life than in my pictures.

My assistant, Marvi, not only helps out when I’m photographing my cards, he’s quite helpful when I’m typing my Blog too.  If there’s any spelling errors I blame him lol.

Next on tonight’s hop is Cathy Pinchbeck, you’re going to love her creation.  Just click on the Next arrow to Hop on over.
