CASEing the Catty Santa's Workshop Memories & More - #CTC196

It's time to have some time crafting on a sunny Sunday afternoon as I have been busy for the last few weeks preparing for a High Tea last Saturday afternoon which raised over $1,000 for Compassion Australia and my sponsored child in Northern Thailand.

This week at CASEing the Catty, the Crew are featuring the Santa's Workshop Suite (pages 18 to 27) in the Holiday Catalogue, oh I love this catalogue as Christmas is my favourite time of the year.

You maybe starting here so welcome or you could have come from Judy May.

I decided to purchase the Santa's Workshop Memories & More Card Pack and the matching Poppy Parade Cards and Envelopes to make 20 quick and easy cards ready for Christmas.

I am going to be spending 3 weeks in the United States of America from the end of October so I need to get some of the Christmas cards out of the way prior to leaving as when I return from the Stampin' Up! Onstage Live in Orlando, Florida it will be time for Christmas gatherings and parties.

This afternoon within 3 hours I had made 20 Christmas  cards that I think are very cute and have quite a few layers to them with lots of dimensionals and I also used the Enamel Shapes and I was inspired by the examples to the left which I did happen to CASE a few of the designs to start off with.

Cardstock: Santa's Workshop Memories & More Cards and Envelopes, Garden Green
Accessories:  Santa's Workshop Memories & More Card Pack, Santa's Workshop Enamel Shapes, Call Me Clover 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Garden Green Baker's Twine (retired), 1/4" Whisper White Organza Ribbon (retired)

Now it's time to hop on over to Angela Meiritz-Reid and see what she has created this week.

CASEing the Catty Beautiful Day - #CTC190

Another week has passed and we have started another new month, I can not believe how quickly this year is disappearing.  This week at CASEing the Catty we are featuring the Artistic Impressions Section of the Annual Catalogue (pages 127 to 141).

You maybe starting here so welcome or you could have come from Mel Pagano.

I sat down with the catalogue with a cappuccino this morning and chose the card I was going to make as I had decided that I was going to use the Beautiful Day stamp set as it had not seen ink yet.  

I have combined the beautiful bloom with the new Watercolour Pencils in Flirty Flamingo and Cajun Craze with Crushed Curry for the stamens and then leaves in Granny Apple Green and Garden Green and then blended the colours together with some water in my aqua painter.  

I have also used the August limited time only (available only until stock lasts) Stitched Season framelits for the layers of leaves in Soft Sea Foam and Gold Foil which I think make the bloom standout even more, unfortunately it's a dull day here in Woodside and I had trouble getting a good photograph without shadows.

Finally, I gold embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment on the bottom, which was easy as I inked up in Versamark and put a piece of scrap paper over the small words under it so they would not stamp on the card.

Stamp Set:  Beautiful Day
Ink:  Memento, VersaMark
Cardstock:  Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White, Gold Foil Sheet
Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Stitched Seasons Framelits, Watercolour Pencils Assortment 2, Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder, Heat Tool
