CTC 95: Stampin’ Up! Home Sweet Home

Published by under cards | Sep 11 2016

CASE-ing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop

I’m SO excited about this week’s theme! The brief was “CASE your favourite holiday catalogue 3D item”.

Oh. my. goodness. Where do you start? There are sooooo many lovely 3D projects to choose from.

But in the end there could be only one. The item that made me gasp with excitement when I saw it the very first time I look at this catty:

 

Stampin' Up! Home Sweet Home bundle

Seriously how adorable is that little Welcome house made with the Home Sweet Home bundle of stamp sets and thinlit dies. I love the gingerbread one too, but oh I just couldn’t wait to recreate this one with the ‘weatherboards’ and cute little windows.

Mine is super simple, but I played around with a few different versions of roofing and thought I’d share them with you today.

You need 5 or 6 rows of die cut ’tiles’ for each side, or you can you use cardstock trimmed to 5.2cm wide or trimmed to the shape of the roof line.

If you have a bit of trouble getting a nice and neat join where the roof tiles meet in the middle, then try trimming a 2cm x 5.2cm piece of cardstock which is scored in the middle and fit it over the join.

Also, a teeny tiny pearl from the Rhinestone makes a lovely door handle.

 

 

The Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate is also an effective roof material.CTC 95: Stampin' Up!'s Home Sweet Home with acetate window roof

Tip: Don’t forget to first remove the thin protective film when using these acetate sheets.

 

 

Another option is embossing a cardstock panel and layering it over the roof line. Play around with different embossing folders and sponging effects to see what you come up with!

This house was so cute I couldn’t just stop at one!

In fact I made a whole series of them which I’ll be sharing in the days ahead. But for now, let’s continue on with the CTC Blog Hop and see what the lovely Liz has for us today.

The Sprinkles Punch is my favourite of these. Not only great for making the ‘confetti’ inside shaker cards, it’s also perfect for adding some sparkle to card fronts.

Here is a gorgeous card that the lovely Julia from Handmade by Julia Quinn sent me recently.

She has punched out Glimmer paper with the Sprinkles punch and it looks stunning and oh so sparkly in real life!

CTC 94: Candy Cane Lane

Published by under cards | Sep 04 2016

CASE-ing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop

 

This week the CTC crew are turning to pages 4 – 6 of the NEW Holiday Catalogue, where we find the sweet Candy Cane Lane suite of products. 

[Check out the entire suite in my online store here.]

This suite has papers, markers, washi tape and more, in the colours of Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Real Red and White.

Candy Cane Lane

The project that caught my eye this week was the one on the bottom of page 4: the Quick & Easy seasonal tags.

CTC 94: Candy Cane Lane

 

I took a little bit of artistic license with my interpretation this week. I converted the Candy Cane Lane DSP tags to note cards and stepped them up by adding a few extra elements. I swapped the stamp set too.

And this is what I came up with:

CTC 94: Candy Cane Lane

The Layering Circle framelits came into their own in this project. I just adore those delicate scallop edges on some of the framelits, and the convenience of having so many different sizes in one pack.

To have a separate handheld punch in each of these sizes would cost hundreds of dollars! Thankfully we’ve now got the cost-effective and space-saving alternative of layering circle framelits.

The Candy Cane Lane papers feature cute little houses, delicate dots, little gingerbread, hearts, candy and more. A lovely Christmas paper if you want an alternative to the traditional reds and greens.

 

 

It’s now time to continue on to the hop. Next port of call is the lovely Rebecca. Click here to see what she has for us this week, or click on the buttons below.

CASE-ing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop

 

Hi friends! Well here we are back at the end of another weekend. I hope you had a great one!

We had a fabulous (and busy!) time at the Melbourne Paperific Expo all weekend but it’s great to now join the CTC Crew for another awesome hop.

We’re looking at the Artistic Expressions section. Yes, it’s a big one. All the way from pages 92 to 157! Enjoy!

 


 

I love Swirly Bird stamp set on page 152. So versatile, and the framelit dies that coordinate are so fun.

Here is the project that caught my eye this week:

 

And here is my version:

 

CTC 93: Swirly Bird

 

I kept to the same layout and stamps, just changed the colour this week.

Can you pick the colours?

The die cut cardstock is Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo.

 

So lets continue with the blog hop. Next on the hop is the lovely Jackie Noble, and I’m sure you’ll love the gorgeous project she has for us today.

CTC 92: Everyday Occasions Baker’s Box

Published by under cards | Aug 21 2016

CASE-ing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop

Hello! I’m so excited to back with the CTC crew this week, as we CASE (copy and share everything) from one of the lovely projects in the Stampin’ Up! catalogue. This week we return to the Everyday Occasions section of the annual catalogue. You can find all those inspirational creations on pages 66 to 91. 

 


 

This week I was quite taken by the sweet box on page 80.

Here it is:

Bakers Box project from page 80 of the annual 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! catalogue

It was made with the Baker’s Box thinlits dies and features the You’re Sublime stamp set on the front.

For my creation, I made a couple of little changes which really changed the whole tone of the box.

CTC92: Awesomely Artistic Bakers Box

 

I swapped the Watermelon Wonder Mini Striped ribbon for the Mint Macaron and the front of my box features the Awesomely Artistic stamp set.

 

CTC 92: Bakers Box

 

 

I’ve also added some copper!

Now it’s sooooo hard to photograph, but the sentiment is embossed with Copper embossing powder and is tied on with copper thread.

 

CTC92: Awesomely Artistic Bakers Box

 

 

The dragonfly was also heat embossed with copper powder.

This is such a cute box! A lovely little size for making your own gift boxes.
