CTC175 – Favourite Occasions Big Shot Project

Stampin' Up CTC175 Eastern Palace

Hello and welcome to my blog.  This week at CASEing the Catty we are CASEing our Favourite Occasions Big Shot Project.  You may have hopped over from Rebecca, thanks for continuing on with me.

CTC175

I’ve CASEd the cute little box in the above graphic which is found on page 41 of the Occasions Catalogue.

Occasions p41

I know we are all excited about the new Catalogue so it’s really easy to forget about some of your all time favourite products from the Annual Catalogue.  I love the Eastern Beauty Bundle and I’m so happy it’s carrying over into the next Catty.  It’s not going to be available in a bundle though, so if this is still on your Wish List you should get it before the 31st of May to save 10% off the bundle.

Stampin' Up CTC175 Eastern Palace

I’ve die cut the cute little Lot’s to Love Box from the Occasions Catalogue using Eastern Palace Specialty DSP.

Stampin' Up CTC175 Eastern Palace

I’ve decorated the front of the box using the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies in Very Vanilla card stock.  I’ve also used an Eastern Gold Vinyl Sticker, Mini Tassel and a Gold Faceted Gem.  I’ve stuffed the box with Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie.

Next on our hop tonight is Rose, you’re going to love her project.

Colour INKspiration Challenge CI31

Stampin' Cat CI31 Beautiful Bouquet

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Today’s card is for the Colour INKspiration Challenge CI31.  The Challenge colours are Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Tempting Turquoise.

CI31

I loved working with these colours, they felt very warm and autumny (is that even a word lol)

Stampin' Cat CI31 Beautiful Bouquet

Cajun Craze and Copper go so well together.  I’ve used the Timeless Textures stamp set and heat embossed the edges of my Whisper White card with Copper Embossing Powder.  I’ve also added in a few Copper Foil die cut leaves from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits.

Stampin' Cat CI31 Beautiful Bouquet

The flowers are from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and are stamped in Crushed Curry and I’ve adhered a Tempting Turquoise Enamel Shape to their centre.  I’ve added some Wink of Stella to my small white flower clusters.

I hope you like today’s project.

Thanks for stopping by.

CTC174 – Hostess Sets and Memories and More

Stampin' Cat CTC174 Petal Passion

Hello and welcome to my blog.  The last week has been full on with Stampin’ Up! On Stage in Sydney on the 7th of April followed by a week of volunteering at the Comm Games.  I was on Access Control at the Belmont Shot Gun Range in Brisbane.  I had a wonderful time volunteering and made many new friends and memories.

GC2018

My Volunteer Uniform

Two of the shooters from Norfolk Island

A wheelbarrow full of Shot Gun shells.  Is it just me or can you see a colour scheme for a card in that wheelbarrow?

 

This week at CASEing the Catty we are CASEing the Hostess Sets and Memories and More from either the Annual Catalogue or the Occasions Catalogue.   You may have hopped over from Julia, thanks for continuing on with me.

CTC174

I’ve CASEd the card on page 220 of the Annual Catalogue.

Annual p220

I made my card before I went to On Stage where we found out about the Colour Revamp.

Stampin' Cat CTC174 Petal Passion

My card base is Always Artichoke stamped with two of the images from Petal Palette.  I’ve used Petal Passion DSP for the banner behind the sentiment.

Stampin' Cat CTC174 Petal Passion

The bird is also from the Petal Palette stamp set.  I stamped him on a piece of acetate then transferred that image to card stock to get the bird image facing the other way.  I have a Pink Pirouette scalloped circle and a Sahara Sand Eastern Medallion die cut behind the birds.  The flower is from the Petals and More Thinlits Dies and the sentiment is from Tabs for Everything.

Next on tonights hop is the very talented Rose.  Just click on the next button to hop right over.

CTC172 – Myths & Magic – Pages 36-43

Stampin' Cat CTC172 Flying Home Stampin' Up!

Happy Easter everyone,  I hope you’ve all had a relaxing break with a few days off.  I’ve had a wonderful day with my family today.   We had a BBQ lunch at my house, 10 people and 4 dogs.  Poor Marvi was not impressed.

Last night I went to the rehearsal of the Comm Games Opening Ceremony at Carrara Stadium on the Gold Coast.  I can’t tell you anything about it or share any pictures with you, I’ve been sworn to secrecy.  All I can say is you’re going to enjoy it.

Welcome to another Sunday night CASEing the Catty Blog Hop.  This week we are CASEing the Myths & Magic section of the Occasions Catalogue, pages 36-43.

I’ve CASed the top card on the right hand side of page 41.

Occasions page 41

Again I’ve kept my card very similar to the original version.

Stampin' Cat CTC172 Flying Home Stampin' Up!

I’ve used Soft Sky as my card base.  The Daffodil Delight and Pool Party layers are the Tutti-Frutti cards from Sale-a-bration.  Sale-a-bration finished yesterday but I thought these were the perfect colour to add to my card.

Stampin' Cat CTC172 Flying Home Stampin' Up!

I’ve used the Flying Home stamp set and coloured it with my Watercolour Pencils and Stampin’ Blends.  The sentiment is from Sure Do Love You and I’ve added some Bermuda Bay 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon behind it.

Marvi liked another card with birds on it and thought it might be tasty.

CTC171 – Sale-a-bration

Stampin’ Cat CTC171 Bird Banter Pick a Pattern

 

Hello and welcome to my blog.  It’s only 10 days until the Commonwealth Games start on the 4th April.  Yesterday I attended my last training session which was held at the Belmont Shooting Centre.  I’m just a little bit excited for my first day on the 8th. 

This week at CASEing the Catty we are back to CASEing the Sale-a-bration Catty for the last time.  There’s only 6 days left of Sale-a-bration.  You may have hopped over from Julia, thanks for continuing on with me.

CTC171

I’ve CASEd the card on the right hand side of page 12.

SAB page 12

Instead of using the Epic Celebrations stamp set I’ve used Bird Banter.

Stampin’ Cat CTC171 Bird Banter Pick a Pattern

My card base is Basic Black layered with a couple of pieces of Pick a Pattern DSP.   I’ve stamped my cute little “galah” on Flirty Flamingo cardstock then used my watercolour pencils to colour him in.

Stampin’ Cat CTC171 Bird Banter Pick a Pattern

I’ve used the Ticket Tear Border Punch on the ends of the sentiment and popped some Pick a Pattern Washi Tape and Mini Silver Sequin Trim behind it.

As soon as Marvi saw the birds on my card he wanted to help with the photos.

Occasions page 32

My card is very similar to the original.  I’ve used Lemon Lime Twist as my card base and I’ve added in a layer of Bermuda Bay.

Stampin' Cat CTC170 Bubble Over

I die cut 8 Silver Foil bottle caps with the Bottles & Bubbles Framelit Dies.  Instead of using the stamp set for the images on my bottle caps I’ve used the Sale-a-bration Bubbles & Fizz DSP.  I’ve punched the images out with my 3/4″ circle punch.

Stampin' Cat CTC170 Bubble Over

The sentiment is from the Bubble Over stamp set and I’ve attached some Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon behind it.

CTC169 – Sale-a-bration

Stampin' Cat CTC169 Lots of Lavender

Hello and welcome to my blog.  It’s been another busy week for me.  On Friday I had a  trip to the Gold Coast to collect my Volunteer Commonwealth Games Uniform.  It’s under a month now until my first day as a Volunteer on Sunday 8th April.  That will be a huge weekend for me as I’m attending Stampin’ Up! Onstage in Sydney the day before.

This week at CASEing the Catty we are CASEing from the Sale-a-bration Catalogues again.  You may have hopped over from Julia, thanks for continuing on with me.

CTC169

I’m CASEing the card on the right hand side of page 8 of the Sale-a-bration Catalogue. Are you surprised I’m not using the card on the left………again?

SAB page 8

I hadn’t inked up the lavender from the Lots of Lavender stamp set yet.

Stampin' Cat CTC169 Lots of Lavender

I’ve used Petal Garden DSP on a Thick Whisper White card base.  I’ve added a smaller layer of Springtime Foils Specialty DSP, a Delicate White Doily and a layer of Soft Sky with the lavender image heat embossed in Silver.

Stampin' Cat CTC169 Lots of Lavender

The sentiment is from Banners for You and I’ve used the matching Bunch of Banners Framelits to die cut it.  I’ve added some Silver Metallic Thread behind the sentiment.

Next on the Blog Hop tonight is Sandra, you’re going to love her project.

Colour INKspiration Challenge CI28

Stampin' Cat CI28 Foil Frenzy

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Today’s card is for the Colour INKspiration Challenge CI28.  The Challenge colours are Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Sweet Sugarplum and Lemon Lime Twist.

CI28

I found these colours a little challenging, they’re definitely colours I wouldn’t usually use together.

Stampin' Cat CI28 Foil Frenzy

I love Lemon Lime Twist so I started with that as my card base.  I added a layer of LLT from the Tutti-Frutti Cards in the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.  Next a smaller layer of Soft Suede and Whisper White followed by LLT Foil Frenzy.

Stampin' Cat CI28 Foil Frenzy

The balloons are punched from Petal Garden DSP with the Balloon Bouquet Punch.  The sentiment is from We Must Celebrate stamped in Bermuda Bay and I’ve added some Washi Tape to both ends.  I’ve used Whisper White Solid Baker’s twine for the balloon strings and for the bow.

I hope you like today’s project.

Thanks for stopping by.

CTC168 – Petal Passion – Pages 22-27

Stampin' Cat CTC168 Petal Passion

Hello and welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty.  This week we are CASEing the Petal Passion Suite from pages 22-27 of the Occasions Catalogue.

You may have hopped over from Fi Cobbin, thanks for continuing on with me.

CTC168

I’m CASEing the card on the right hand side of the above graphic.  Here’s a closer look at it.

Occasions Page 22

I’ve changed the colours of my card and added a couple of layers of card stock.

Stampin' Cat CTC168 Petal Passion

I’ve used Petal Passion DSP and used my sponge brayer to colour the white background with Sahara Sand ink.  I’ve also added some extra leaves from Petal Palette in Night of Navy and the flower image in Sahara Sand, giving my DSP a totally new look.

Stampin' Cat CTC168 Petal Passion

I used Night of Navy ink on the inside of the Petal Pair Embossing Folder and embossed a piece of Sahara Sand card stock.  I tore the edges of this piece, around the flowers.  My sentiment is heat embossed in White Embossing Powder.  I’ve also added some Basic Rhinestones and a Petal Passion Embellishment.

CTC167 – Sale-a-bration

Stampin' Cat CTC167 Heartfelt Blooms

Hello and welcome to my blog.  It’s Sunday night already, where has the week gone.  I had my first class in my new class room on Friday.  Everybody loved the new space.

Stampin' Cat Class Room

Stampin' Cat Class Room

I usually set up trestle tables in the garage but they didn’t really fit into my new room so I bought this old dining table off Facebook Marketplace for $50, delivered.  The lady that I got it from was worried that the table needed sanding and re-varnishing but when I told her what I was going to use it for she asked me for a business card.  It fits 8 people perfectly.

This week at CASEing the Catty we’re CASEing Sale-a-bration again.  You may have hopped over from Julia, thanks for continuing on with me.

CTC167

This weeks card may look similar to the layout of my last 3 Sale-a-bration CASE’s but it’s not.  I’m CASEing the card on page 18.

SAB Page 18

Which is very similar to the card on page 8.

Stampin' Cat CTC167 Heartfelt Blooms

I’ve used Early Espresso as my card base and I’ve layered it with some Wood Textures DSP.  I’ve stamped the DSP with Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set in Archival Black Ink.  I’ve used the same stamp on some Whisper White then die cut it with Lots of Labels Framelits.

Stampin' Cat CTC167 Heartfelt Blooms

The sentiment is from the Beautiful Peacock stamp set.  The word “YOU!” is heat embossed in white.  The extra Vellum flowers and leaves are from Bouquet Bunch Framelits.  Behind the sentiment I’ve used 1/4″ Whisper White Organza Ribbon.

Next on the hop is the very talented Bronwyn.  Just click on the next button below.
