CASEING THE CATTY #196 | SANTA'S WORKSHOP

 
Welcome to this week's CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. Our inspiration this week comes from the Santa's Workshop Suite on pages 18-27 of the new Holiday Catalogue.  You may have arrived here from seeing Kathryn's lovely project if you're hopping along already. If you started here, welcome and please make sure to visit all the Design Team's blogs, the next button at the end of this post will take you on your journey.
 
 
This week my inspiration came from the "Merry Warm Wishes" card below on page 24 of the Holiday Catalogue.
 
 
I've created a birthday card using the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper.
 
 
The beautiful designs have been printed on shimmery white paper to create a pearl finish - perfect to celebrate Stampin' Up's 30th Anniversary! Happy Birthday is stamped in Tranquil Tide and is from the Lemon Zest Stamp Set.
 
 
"Celebrate" is from the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies and has been cut out in Night of Navy Cardstock several times and then coated in Fine-Tip Glue. I used the Multi-Purpose Adhesive Sheets to stick the words together. A piece of Mint Macaron twine from the Nature's Twine pack is wrapped around and tied in a bow and a few Basic Jewels Clear Rhinestones add a little bling!

OSAT BLOG HOP | I NEED A HERO

 
Today I'm sharing my projects for the OSAT Blog Hop! This month our theme is "I Need A Hero" and I'm featuring cards made using products from the new 2018 Holiday Catalogue. My projects are gifts for two of my daughter's teachers who recently took teams away for a football tournament. They looked after them, encouraged and supported them and took time away from their lives and families to do so. Also after spending two hours yesterday at Parent/Teacher Interviews I am humbled by their dedication and enthusiasm to teach.

 
This cute crate is from the Wood Crate Framelits and uses paper from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. The mini cards and envelopes fit perfectly into this little crate!
 

I bundled up four cards and envelopes into a cellophane bag and added the thank you tag which is from the Stitched All Around Bundle.
 
 
 
 
The paper for these cards is from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper - I love how just changing what paper you use creates a different look! 
 
 
The little bird (from the Botanical Bliss Stamp Set) has been stamped in Cherry Cobbler, fussy cut and coated in Fine-Tip Glue to create the raised shiny finish.


The leaves at the back are from the Botanical Tags Thinlits Dies and use Mossy Meadow cardstock to co-ordinate with the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.

I've finished each card with a piece of Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine wrapped around it and tied in a bow and a couple of little banners in Festive Farmhouse DSP. "Tis the Season" is from the Itty Bitty Greetings set.


I hope you have enjoyed my projects today! Please use the links below to continue on the hop with us. There'll be lots of inspirational projects - you won't want to miss any!

CASEING THE CATTY #195 | FESTIVE FARMHOUSE


Welcome to this week's CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. Our inspiration this week comes from the Festive Farmhouse Suite on pages 12-17 of the new Holiday Catalogue.  You may have arrived here from seeing Rachel's gorgeous project if you're hopping along already. If you started here, welcome and please make sure to visit all the Design Team's blogs, the next button at the end of this post will take you on your journey. 

 
This week my inspiration came from the "Happy Christmas Wishes" card above on page 12 of the Holiday Catalogue.
 
 
My card has been made using the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Beautiful You Stamp Set - and yes I'm still not ready for Christmas! This paper is printed on shimmery white paper and is gorgeous. The piece of Powder Pink cardstock layered on the card base has been embossed using the Subtle 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

 
To create the "sewed" circle in the middle of the card I've used Silver Metallic Thread. Then I've layered leaves cut from the Botanical Tags Thinlits Dies in Mint Macaron, loops made using Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine then a piece of Whisper White Cardstock stamped and cut using the Tailored Tag Punch.
 
I stamped the sentiment (from the Beautiful You stamp set) in Powder Pink on the tag then again in Night of Navy on a scrap piece and fussy cut it before adhering it using Dimensionals.
 
In place of the three little stars I've used silver sequin from the Metallics Sequin Assortment.
