CASEing the Catty - #CTC368 Case a Favourite Annual Catalogue Project Sending Smiles



It's new Catty time! Time to play with new products!

This week as CASEing the Catty #CTC368 we are caseing your Favourite Annual Catalogue project, which I am featuring the Sending Smiles Bundle.

Welcome to the blog hop or you may have come from Michelle Strazds.

I am caseing the card on page 14 and have decided that it will be a card I can easily use all the new in colors - Sweet Sorbet, Tahitian Tide, Starry Sky, Parakeet Party and Orchid Oasis.

I choose to use a background die from Poppy Moments which I had not used before, I repeated cutting it out 3 times to create my card front background and then stamped and die cut all the flowers, stems and sentiments for the Sending Smiles Bundle.  

Finally I added a few of the Brushed Brass Butterflies which I thought looked like they were flying around the garden of flowers.

Stamp Set: Sending Smiles
Ink:  Sweet Sorbet, Tahitian Tide, Starry Sky, Parakeet Party, Orchid Oasis, Mango Melody
Cardstock:  Thick Basic White, Basic White
Accessories:  Cut 'n Emboss Machine, Sending Dies, Poppy Moments Dies, Brushed Brass Butterflies

CASEing the Catty - #CTC366 Farewell Annual Catty Free as a Bird


 
It's time to say farewell to the Annual Catalogue this week at CASEing the Catty #CTC366. 

Welcome to the blog hop or you may have come from Lauren Meiklejohn

I have chosen one of my favourite stamp sets, Free as a Bird to feature this week which is highlighted on page 82 of the Annual Catalogue.  

I decided to keep the colours the same but changed the card to a landscape layout with the Stitched Rectangle dies as my centrepiece.  

I had only this week learnt from a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator that you can use a Colour Lifter to blend your watercolor pencils to blend out the strokes instead of using water in a Water Painter.  

It makes it so much easier with the small details of the stamp set as they don't run so much and therefore you have a lot more control.

Finally, I finished the card with a sentiment cut out with a half of one of the dies from the Hippo & Friends dies and some twine.

Stamp Set:  Free as a Bird
Cardstock:  Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue, Basic White
Ink:  Black Memento 
Accessories:  Cut 'n Emboss Machine, Hippo & Friends Dies, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Watercolor Pencils from both Assortments, Thick Baker's Twine (retired)

Thanks for joining me this week, now it's time to see what Julia Quinn has created.

CASEing the Catty - #CTC362 Case a Sketch Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper

 


This week at CASEing the Catty we are using a sketch challenge inspired by the Annual Catalogue simplify or step it up collection on page 71.

Welcome to the blog hop or you may have come from Rebecca Scurr.

I am currently on holidays in Victoria but I made this card prior to leaving last weekend.

I have chosen to feature a retiring in color, Bumblebee and I have coordinated this with the beautiful Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.


I used Bumblebee cardstock as my base and layered a piece of matching DSP.  I then cut 4 @ 1 1/4" squares using 4 different designers, choosing 3 flowers and a lighter square that I could over stamp a sentiment in Black Memento.  I then add a lovely Fresh Freesia ribbon bow and some Polished Pink jewels.  

This design would be great to use up all those packs of designer series papers that we all have in our collection.  I would love to see you create some and share with me.

Stamp Set:  Flowing Flowers
Cardstock:  Bumblebee, Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper
Ink:  Black Memento
Accessories:  Fresh Freesia 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon, Polished Pink In Color Jewels

Thanks for joining me this week now it's time to hop on over to Rachel Palmieri.
