CTC 76: Have a Cuppa

Published by under cards | May 01 2016

CASE-ing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop

Have a Cuppa Suite, by Stampin' Up!

 

This week we’re looking at the Have a Cuppa suite of products on pages 34 – 37 of the Occasions Catalogue.

The gorgeous A Nice Cuppa stamp set and coordinating Cups & Kettle Framelits are retiring! Nooooooo……

The good news is the bundle is still available in Australia (as of today) although I know in some other markets around the world it is already sold out.

So Aussies, you still have a chance to add these stamps and dies to your collection – buy them together for a 15% saving!

 

What I love MOST about this bundle:

  • the adorable little spoon, knife and fork framelits… Oh my goodness, they look amazing die cut from silver foil paper
  • The coffee cup die!
  • The little heart-shaped steam – gorgeous cut out in vellum
  • The sweet little tea bag stamps
  • It’s unique! These are the kinds of dies that people search for after they are no longer available. Don’t miss out – you’ll regret it!

Here is my project, based on the cute treat bag on page 34.

And here was the inspiration. I kept it mostly the same. We made this project in a few classes and events recently – a fun and practical project.

Join the challenge

This year we are doing a monthly challenge and I’d love for you to join in. If you’ve been inspired by our blog hop, just add to the linky tool in this post which will run for the whole of the month.

 

A temporary good bye…

This will be my last CTC post for a few weeks, as we are about to head off to Europe for the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip. My hubby, kids and I will join qualified demonstrators from around the world on an amazing Mediterranean Cruise to Spain, Italy and France. Don’t forget to follow my Stamping With Simone Facebook Page for updates on our Stampin’ Up! cruise adventures.

 

Next stop on the hop is the lovely Monique Fielder, you can check out her work here or click on the Next button below.

Happy stamping,

MySiggy

CTC 74: Shine On

Published by under cards | Apr 10 2016

CASE-ing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop

 

This week the CTC Crew are turning to pages 30 – 33 of the Occasions Catalogue for inspiration. This includes the gorgeous Shine On suite and some of our fabulous kits.

Shine On Suite - Occasions Catalogue 2016 by Stampin' Up!

I have to say the Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper is waaaaayyy better in real life. Heavier weight kraft paper and fabulous silver foil designs on one side of the paper. LOVE.

Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper

 

Inspired by the samples on page 30 of the Occasions Catalogue, I made a little card and gift box ensemble.

 

Shine On ensemble
The gift box is made using the Curvy Keepsakes die. It’s a great size for holding jewellery or sweet treats.

The specialty paper is heavier than regular designer series paper so it’s perfect for boxes.

Stampin' Up! Curvy Keepsakes die cut in the Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper. So shiny in real life!

The matching card has some of the same foil specialty paper with a touch of Cucumber Crush and Real Red.

Here are some other cards I made recently with the Shine On paper, this time with Pool Party.

Note: Next week there will be no CTC blog hop. We are having a week off because many of the crew will be attending the OnStage Events held simultaneously in various places around the world. There are two a year – one in April and and another in November, and are fun and informative Stampin’ Up! hosted events. We’re excited! The crew will be back on April 24.

Happy stamping,

Perfect Pairings Shaker Frame Card

Published by under cards | Mar 13 2016

CASE-ing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop

 

This week the CASE-ing The Catty crew are having some more Sale-a-bration fun. You may have come from Rebecca’s page, or you may be starting here. I hope you enjoy our little bit of weekend inspiration and that you are inspired to get crafty today too.

 

My inspiration this week came from the fun shaker frame card on page 10 of the SAB brochure. Gotta love a card you can shake AND it’s shiny with gold foil prints!

Project Life cards used in a shaker frame card

 

I use the same gold printed window sheet from the Project Life ‘Memories in the Making’ card collection, along with the Perfect Pairings stamp set.

But a few minor changes ended up making a very noticeable difference!

Here is what I ended up with:

CTC 70: Perfect Pairings shaker frame card.

I switched out the pastel Mint Macaron patterned paper for a striking black and white sheet from the Everyday Chic designer series paper stack.

I love the bold combination of black, white and gold. Definitely not my usual style… but that’s why I love these sorts of challenges. They really do get you out of your comfort zone and that is so good for soul!

Would you like to play along too? We’d love for you to join our linky challenge here. The CTC crew are tickled pink to visit and comment on entries, so jump on board.

Next stop on the hop is Jackie Noble. Enjoy!
