CTC 82 – Stampin’ Up! Christmas

Published by under cards | Jun 12 2016

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…


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)

    Personally I love the blue tree! Looks great Simone.

    Thanks Krissy. I say ‘why not?’ to the blue trees! lol

  3. Julia Quinnon 12 Jun 2016 at 7:24 pm

    Blue trees are the way to go! They look totally as if they belong! I am in love with your banner and the sponged finish. It looks really amazing! Thankyou for the inspiration.

    Thanks Julia. I think the original banner might have been Cherry Cobbler, but I went with Real Red in the end. It kinda went with the blue trees better. xxx

    Great colours. I love your banner too. Your class ladies will love it.

    This card is a winner! I’m pretty sure I’ll make some up in the same color scheme this year if you don’t mind me Caseing your case!

    Simone, I am with you in making more Christmas cards before the rush in December. I have started well too. What did you use for the water droplets/snow?

  8. Simoneon 22 Jun 2016 at 12:41 pm

    Thanks Kathryn, They are actually little clear sequins adhered with the fine tip glue pen! They are from the Metallics Sequin Assortment (page 177).

    I like your take on the original, I have been veering toward the blues rather than traditional red and green for Christmas lately.

    Simone, I so love your colour combination.
