CASE-ing the Catty Carols of Christmas & Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies - #CTC145



I am finally having a few moments for crafting this afternoon to make a couple of Christmas card for this week's CASE-ing the Catty #CTC145 featuring the Merry Little Christmas section of the Holiday Catalogue (page 10 to 14).

You may be starting here so welcome or you may have come from Monique Fielder.


This week I have cased the card on page 10 with the Be Merry Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalogue and have used the colour combination from this set of Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Whisper White.

I sent about 100 Christmas cards each year so I have made 6 using this layout and colour combination to add to my collection and for some difference I used the Night in Bethlehem stamp set to highlight how easy it is to change the design to use a stamp set of your choice if you do not have the one featured in the catalogue.


Stamp Set:  Carols of Christmas, Night in Bethlehem
Cardstock:  Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Be Merry Designer Series Paper
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green
Accessories:  Garden Green Baker's Twine (retired)

CASE-ing the Catty Guy Greetings - #CTC144



CASE-ing the Catty #CTC144 are featuring the Holiday Catalogue for the first time this week and we are featuring the Quilted Christmas section (pages 4 to 9).

I have am in love with the amazing new products and your wish list will be long, but I have chosen to make a Father's Day card to celebrate all fathers today.

My dad always wore a hat and these different hats brought back so may memories of him.  I am remembering my loving dad who passed away in June and he is always in my thoughts especially today.

You may be starting here so welcome of you may have come from Jackie Noble.

I was inspired by a the "be merry" card to the left for a Father's Day card that I made at my last Card Class, I did not have any appropriate designer series paper for the colour theme I had chosen so I decided to make my own by stamping tone on tone in Old Olive with all the hat randomly positioned all over.

I then stamped the centrepiece in Night of Navy and Old Olive (I do like the "hats off to you!" and I finished it off with a little Old Olive Baker's Twine.  Very quick and easy masculine card which the ladies at my class made with the different stamps from this set for Father's Day and Birthday cards.

Stamp Set:  Guy Greetings
Cardstock:  Night of Navy, Very Vanilla, Old Olive
Ink:  Night of Navy, Old Olive
Accessories:  Old Olive Baker's Twine




Don't you love "HATS OFF TO YOU!"

What am I doing on a Saturday evening whilst watching the football- crafting of course! I am making 60 bookmarks to send to the Compassion Project in Northern Thailand where Athicha attends regularly on a Sunday. 

I am so blessed to be able to support her, her family and wider community children.  

Now to add some ribbon, as I will send some pencils for the children to colour them in.

Art with Heart Team Blog Hop - Merry Little Labels & Everyday Label Punch


Tonight some of the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team are sharing some fun and fabulous ideas to inspire you from the NEW Holiday Catalogue available to purchase from 1 September 2017 to 2 January 2018.  Be sure to request your copy of the Catalogue TODAY!

It's the first time that I am using products from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue and I decided to use the matching Merry Little Labels stamp set and Everyday Label Punch.  Wow I am already in love with this punch, it's great with these new stamp sets in the Holiday Catalogue but will go with any of the large sentiments that you have in your Stampin' Up! collection.

I love to make gifts for Christmas and this year I am going to be making some tea light candles and packing them in these beautiful white Mini Pizza Boxes (they also are food safe, so you could pop in some treats or Stampin' Up! will be releasing Whisper White 3" x 3" Envelopes so you could make cards or tags, the ideas are endless).

I have made a belly band with the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper and then tided the gorgeous Gold 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon and created a bow and then I gold embossed the sentiments from the Merry Little Labels and punched it out with the Everyday Label punch and layered this onto a Gold Foil Sheet.

A really quick and simple idea but oh so beautiful and striking.

CASE-ing the Catty Ribbon of Courage and Support Ribbon Framelits - #CTC142



This week the CASE-ing the Catty Team are featuring the Love and Sympathy section of the Annual Catalogue from page 86 to 101.  I have been making a few sympathy cards of late so I decided to use a Love set.

You may be starting here so welcome or you may have come from Mel Pagano. 

I am using one of the stamp sets that means so much to me, as it reflects the Ribbon of Courage symbol, which I have inked up in a couple of shades of pink as Breast Cancer has impacted my family.

I used the Powder Pink Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper instead of the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate and mounted the yardstick in Silver Foil which I think really made it stand out.

I inked up the 2 size hearts and added a strip of the DSP to the inside of the card to make it that bit more special for the receiver of this card.

Stamp Set:  Ribbon of Courage
Cardstock:  Powder Pink, Silver Foil, Whisper White, Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack
Ink:  Flirty Flamingo
Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Support Ribbon Framelit Dies
