CTC 82 – Stampin’ Up! Christmas

Published by under cards

CASE-ing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop

Welcome back to the weekend CASE-ing the Catty blog hop, where each week the CTC crew look at one section of the annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue and CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) a project.

This week we are looking at the Christmas section on pages 26 – 37. 

Here is my project…

Peaceful Pines in Marina Mist, Pool Party and Emerald Envy. Something a bit different! From www.simonebartrum.com (CTC82)

And this was the inspiration from page 29…

page29

I kept everything pretty much the same except for the colours. I used Marina Mist, Pool Party and Emerald Envy for the trees.

Now that’s a different look! I know, I know, trees generally aren’t blue. But hey it’s a card so it can be any colour we want! ;)

 

I have to tell you… I was thrilled to bits to see that we’re starting to look at Christmas. We are 6 months out, but I plan on making a (little) stack of Christmas cards each and every month between now and the big day.

How awesome will it be to have them all ready come November/December!

Are you with me?

Well if you are serious, then think about joining me for my Christmas in July stamp-a-stack classes. You’ll have a fun 2- hour crafting session with everything supplied, and will leave with the start of your 2016 Christmas card collection! Cost is only $20, and numbers are limited so contact me if you would your spot reserved. We’ll make a selection of different cards using exciting new products and some of my all-time-favourites.

Sessions will be held on:

  • Sunday 10th July at 3pm
  • Tuesday 12th July at 1pm
  • Friday 15th July at 7pm

Classes are held in central Victoria (near Ballarat/Daylesford)

CTC 76: Have a Cuppa

Published by under cards

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.

Cups & Kettle Framelits - Treat Bag. www.simonebartrum.com

 

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.

CTC 74: Shine On

Published by under cards

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

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!
