CASEing the Catty - #CTC285 - CASE Sketch, Rooted in Nature


This week we are CASEing the Catty we are casing a layout from page 29 from the Mini Catalogue which is featured below.

If you have started the hop here welcome, or you may have come from my friend and South Australian stamper, Tina Gillespie.

I have chosen the Rooted in Nature stamp set as it has a large individual tree stamp which I thought I would stamp 4 times to create the four strips, 2 in Shaded Spruce and 2 in Mint Macaron at the top of the card, as it did not fill the card to the bottom, I repeated this step with the trunk as a feature.  

It was a little sparse so I stamped off in Just Jade and added a little individual treat to fill in the background.  Finally I chose a long thin sentiment from the For Unto Us stamp set to stamp onto a thin piece of Whisper White cardstock in Shaded Spruce to cover the joins of the trees and then for a final touch added some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter to the four feature trees (unfortunately my photos can not pick up the sparkle).

Stamp Set:   Rooted in Nature, For Unto Us
Cardstock:  Mint Macaron, Whisper White
Ink:  Shaded Spruce, Just Jade, Mint Macaron
Accessories:  Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush






I was hoping you could see the Clear Wink of Stella, but I don't think it came out even in the close up.



It's now time to hop on over to Sandra Collett.

CASEing the Catty - #CTC284 - Hippo Happiness Bundle




This week at CASEing the Catty we are casing a project from the Bundle section (pages 173 to 179), there are many to choose from too.

If you are starting the hop here welcome, or you may have come from Peta Stephen.

I have used the cute Hippo Happiness Bundle which had not seen ink before Saturday, but I just love the cute images, I chose the Hippo, but the donkey, sheep or butterfly would have worked just as well as the feature to the gate fold card. 

I was hoping that I would have time to turn the inside into a shutter card, but I think that will have to wait until later in the week to make my first one of those fancy fold cards.  Come back on Thursday on I hopefully will have a video to share with instructions and measurements.

Stamp Set:  Hippo Happiness
Cardstock: Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Peony Garden Designer Series Paper
Ink:  Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray
Accessories:  Hippo & Friends Dies



The gate fold card and featured belly band.

If you are starting the hop here welcome, or you may have come from Lauren Meiklejohn.








Each year in July, I start making my Christmas Cards large selection starting with my Christmas in July card classes a couple of weeks ago.

My very talented team member, Andrea Sargent loaned me her Peaceful Boughs and coordinating Beautiful Boughs Dies so I decided to case the card on page 61 of the Annual Catalogue utilising this bundle and the many shades of green.

My card base is in Soft Sea Foam and I have layered a piece of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper and then added the lovely sentiment and ribbon in Very Vanilla.

I have die cut the pinecones in Cajun Craze and Cinnamon Cider and used the many foliage dies in the three shades of green - Pear Pizzaz, Garden Green and Just Jade and splattered these around the sentiment focal point, finally finishing off with the Red Rhinestones.

Stamp Set:  Peaceful Boughs
Ink:  Garden Green, Real Red
Cardstock:  Soft Sea Foam, Just Jade, Pear Pizzaz, Garden Green, Cajun Craze, Cinnamon Cider, Very Vanilla, Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper

Art with Heart Team Creative Showcase - Sketch



Welcome to the Monthly Art with Heart Creative Showcase.  This month the Art with Heart team have amazing projects to share with you that have been inspired by the card sketch to the right.  The sketch is to be used as a starting point and has been interpreted in many creative ways the the Art with Heart team.

I have chosen to use some of my lovely Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper to create a very quick and easy card.  I have used a piece Best Dressed Designer Series Paper as my background as it went so well and then teamed it with a couple of different size banners and then punched out starburst in Whisper White and then added the large magnolia which I had carefully fussy cut out.
