CASEing the CAtty - #CTC335 3D Annual Catalogue Merriest Moments


 
I have spent 5 beautiful relaxing days in Middleton, overlooking the beach from the kitchen table where I was able to create this week's card.

You may have started here, or you could have come from Peta Stephen.

This week at CASEing the Catty we are caseing a 3D project from the Annual Catalogue.  




I have chosen the decorated Acetate Card Box on page 44 and made it into a Christmas card in the traditional Green, Red and White colours.

The Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper makes the background and a banner of Real Red cardstock makes the centrepiece with a square of Basic White stamped with the sentiment and a few Old Olive branches with a Wonderful Snowflake mounted on the left side with a fussy cut snowflake again from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper and is finished off with a Real Red Mini Ruffled Ribbon bow.

Stamp Set:  Merriest Moments
Cardstock:  Thick Basic White, Real Red, Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper

CASEing the Catty - #CTC334 Mini Catalogue page 8-15 Snowflake Wishes & So Many Snowflakes Dies



Happy Father's Day to all the fathers, grandfathers, step fathers, and those that are watching up from their heavenly home, which mine will be doing today.  

I did take some beautiful bright and cheerful daffodils to the cemetery today which the bulbs were from the family home at Oakbank, it always gives me joy when they are flowering and spring is here.

 This week at CASEing the Catty were are featuring pages 8 to 15 of the Holiday Mini Catalogue and the Gingerbread and Peppermint Suite.

Welcome to the blog hop if you are starting from here or you may have come from Judy May.


I was inspired my the non traditional colours of the Christmas card on page 13, utilising Petal Pink, Pear Pizzazz and Misty Moonlight, I have also used a different bundle from the Annual Catalogue, Snowflake Wishes and coordinating So Many Snowflakes Dies.

With this set there was not a background textured die, so I used one of the snowflake dies to create the background with Basic White cardstock and then adhered it another piece of Basic White cardstock and then cut it in 1 1/4" strips which I think turned out lovely.

For the snowflakes, I stamped in Petal Pink, Pear Pizzaz and Misty Moonlight and had to fussy cut two out of the three as there is not a matching die and then layered them with Basic White snowflakes.

I used a rectangle die from the Ornate Layers to create the Gray Granite block and had to reduced the size by cutting it in half as it was a little wide but knowing the sentiment was on top it worked out a treat.

Finally I added the bow and some gems and I was really pleased with how it turned out, but it will not be a Christmas card that I will be mass producing as it was quite time consuming making it.

Stamp Set:  Snowflake Wishes
Ink:  Petal Pink, Pear Pizzaz, Misty Moonlight
Cardstock:  Petal Pink, Gray Granite, Basic White
Accessories:  Cut 'n Emboss Machine, So Many Snowflakes Dies, Ornate Layers Dies, Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker's Twine, Soft Succulent Jewels

It's a sunny Sunday here in the Adelaide Hills, my daffodils are starting to come out, so spring must only be around the corner.

This week at CASEing the Catty we are featuring the Mini Catalogue.  

Welcome to the blog hop if you have started here or you may have joined in from Sandra Collett.

I have chosen to use the image of the penguin on page 33 as a sketch with I have coordinated with the Counting Sheep and matching Sheep Dies from the Sale-A-Bration promotion as I wanted to highlight them at my class earlier today.

I used the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper to use as a background, I coloured the sheep with the Blends and then used the coordinating dies to create the scene with the gate, balloons and sun.

The sheep are just so cute as they speak to me as they are celebrating a birthday with lots of fun.

CASEing the Catty - #CTC328 Case Sketch Sale-A-Bration Penguin Playmates




Wow, what a week it has been in my life!!!  

South Australia went into 7 days lockdown, as an essential worker in a general practice it was even busier than normal with COVID Testing Clinics in the car park and COVID Vaccine Clinics within the practice plus the general consultation and of course telehealth so patients did not have to leave home.

It was a pleasure to craft to relax and put some balance back in my life, so welcome to the blog hop or you may have come from Monique Fielder.

This week we are using the card sketch featured to the right which is from the Annual Catalogue on page 33.

I have decided to give you a little sneak peak of the oh cute Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper which you will be able to get for free during the Sale-A-Bration promotion that starts in August.

I had an idea to use the Peaceful Place Speciality Designer Series Paper from the upcoming Mini Catalogue as my background as the snowflakes falling onto the trees would make the feature of the card just pop.  I then fussy cut the penguin on the slay pulled by the polar bear and then added in the snowman.  Inside of a sentiment I decided to add some of the Metallic Mesh Ribbon to make it look like they are sliding along some snow.

That's another Christmas Card made in July, thanks for stopping by and I would love to see what you can create with this sketch challenge.  

Cardstock:  Fresh Fressia, Basic White, Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper, Peaceful Place Speciality Designer Series Paper
Accessories:  Metallic 1 1/2" Mesh Ribbon
