CASEing the Catty #120 Urban Underground

Hello!  Welcome to the CASEing the Catty Sunday blog hop.

You’re joining me & my demonstrator friends as we share projects we’ve created that are inspired by the photos within the pages of the Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

To “CASE” is to Copy & Share Everything.  Or Copy & Selectively Edit.  It’s a great way to make the most of your Stampin’ Up! catalogue!

We’re steadily making our way through the Occasions catalogue and today’s hop features the Urban Underground section of the catalogue & adjoining pages.

I love the Urban Underground suite!  One of my favourite colour combinations is yellow, white & black/gray.

This is the photo that caught my eye today…

Have close look at the card on the bottom right.

Did you know you can make a shaker pocket on a card using a cello bag?

How clever are the creative team at Stampin’ Up!???

It’s so easy to do.  Just measure your bag size, cut a piece of DSP or cardstock to fit, add your shaker pieces and seal!

You can then attach this to your card base and add all the embellishments you want.


The Urban Underground suite was designed to be blokey & masculine – and it’s great for that!!!

But, if you follow my blog, you will have seen some of my ‘girls like … too’ cards.

I thought this design would be perfect for that theme.

By changing up the tools to think & adding in traditional girly pink, this card goes from a sorry card to a tribute to a bestie!

Maybe one who has her own set of tools – because “girls like tools too”!

The loose screws & bolts in the cello bag move around as the card moves.

There’s not as much movement as a traditional shaker card – but enough to make it fun!

I decorated the inside of this card with more of the Build It Framelit die pieces.

How cool is the ruler?


This really is the easiest shaker card you’ll ever make.

So easy, that I whipped up another one in an ice cream theme.

The sprinkles punch (which has been gathering dust!) is perfect for the filling and goes great with the sentiment from the Cool Treats stamp set.

Using the Fine Tip Glue Pen, I added some swirly strawberry sauce to the ice cream.

Accidentally dropping it before it was dry added some extra texture!  I’m so impatient with waiting for things to dry!!!

The inside of this card was easy to decorate using the Tasty Treats Washi Tape.


Be sure to have a go at this style of shaker card.  You won’t believe how easy & mess free it is!!!

Please keep following the blog hop for more inspiring projects.

Next up is the gorgeous Rachel!

We’ve love for you to upload your own Urban Underground inspired creation to our Facebook page.  Join the fun!!!

Happy creating!

Hello!  Hope you’ve had a great week.

Welcome other CASEing the Catty blog hop where we show you creations that have been inspired by the pages of the Stampin’ Up! catalogues.

Today we’re being inspired by the Sale-A-Bration catalogue for the second last time.  There’s just over 2 weeks until your chance to earn Sale-A-Bration products is finished for another year!

If you see anything you like, Sale-A-Bration rewards in Australia are earned with any $90 purchase until 31st March 2017!


Along the blog hop today you’ll find projects that were inspired by pages 16-19 of the SAB catalogue.

This the one that caught my eye on page 18…

I took the box in the middle and used the key elements to changed it into a kids birthday card!

I just love the Happy Birthday stamp from Designer Tee!

Can you see the design parallels?

The blue horizontal stripy panel, happy birthday stick, ribbon & twine feature, a blue, white & yellow main element and the touches of gold were all carryovers from the original sample.

I love how this turned out and have already used it for a sweet little 3rd birthday card.

CASEing the Catty #118 Cool Treats

12371218_10153736740662158_9102306381153319857_o

It’s not any ordinary Sunday around here – because it’s a long weekend in Western Australia.

Can I hear an ‘oh yeah’????

So, as the rest of the world thinks ahead to what their Monday will hold, mine will (hopefully) involve a sleep in, sunshine & yummy food!!!

But, just because it doesn’t feel like Sunday, does mean I’m going to miss a CASEing the Catty blog hop.

Today at CTC, we’re CASEing (copy & selectively edit) projects from the Cool Treats section of the Occasions catalogue – pages 32 – 45!

So many ideas within these pages and I know you’re going to love what the crew has come up with.


I’m still having a love affair with my accidentally ordered Special Reason stamps & Stylish Stems Framelits.

Thank goodness the universe is looking out for my stamping needs.

For my creations this week, I took the colours from this photo on page 42

And the layout from the bag on the right in this photo

To create this beautiful birthday card…

I even decorated the inside!

I loved this design but decided I could step it up with a few extra touches.

So, I took the embossing to the back layer, moved the ribbon and made the die cuts from glimmer, to create this sparkly version…

Subtle changes and creating a design in multiples are a couple of my favourite ways to create more than one card in a sitting for not much extra effort.

Do you like one version better than the other?  I’m a proud mummy who loves both!


That’s me for today!

Please hop on to visit the lovely & talented Mel Pagano.

My catalogue inspiration today was the set of cards made by the Stampin’ Up! creative team using the All Occasions stamp set.

One of the things I love most about CASEing the Catty is the layout inspiration – it’s always a wonderful starting point!

I turned the card at the bottom right into a wedding card…

And the card at the top left into a monster birthday card…

CASEing the Catty #116 Succulent Garden

12371218_10153736740662158_9102306381153319857_o

Hello Sunday!  Did you have a great weekend?  Are you already counting down the days until the next one?

I am!  Because next weekend I’m going on craft retreat!!!  A whole weekend to do nothing but make cards!

Heaven – right???


But there’s a whole week of work ahead, including a full schedule of posts this week.

You can look forward to a CASEing the Catty hop tonight, Stamp Review Crew tomorrow, Colour INKspiration on Wednesday and Just Add Ink on Thursday night!!!

So much inspiration as I join lots of talented demos around the world who will freely share their creativity with us.

So, what is the CTC crew up to today?

It’s all about the Occasions catalogue today as we’re CASEing projects and ideas from the Succulent Garden section – pages 20-31.

CASEing the Catty #116 Succulent Garden

It’s quite a big section covering the Succulent Garden suite plus That’s the Tag bundle, Beautiful You, Watercolor Pencils, High Tide, Dragonfly Dreams, Milestone Moments, Chase Your Dreams, Lucky Elephant, Mediterranean Moments, Custom Tee bundle & Tie Dyed.

Lots of best sellers in that list – so you can expect to see some blockbuster creations on this hop!!!

Quite a few of the sets mentioned above are in high rotation on my craft table at the moment – so it was hard to narrow it down.

But, I kept coming back to this pretty photo using the Beautiful You stamp set…

I have actually already CASEd the bottom card exactly – because I love the colours and styling.

But for this CTC hop, I wanted to step it up and use the elements I love so much to ‘make it my own’.

CASEing the Catty #116 - Beautiful You & Mediterranean Moments. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

So, I…

  • kept the DSP panel but shifted it left
  • used a doily but as a centerpiece rather than hiding it behind the DSP
  • featured the girl but added in a gold embossed Mediterranean Moments scene
  • changed the sentiment
  • used vellum behind the doily, rather than for the sentiment
  • changed the yellow to Sweet Sugarplum

CASEing the Catty #116 - Beautiful You & Mediterranean Moments. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

I’m very happy with the final layout (it look at little bit of putting the pieces together!).

It contains so many of my favourite elements (Sweet Sugarplum & Pool Party, gold embossing, amazing doily, my favourite lady & vellum!).

Looking at a card like this and knowing that I made it, makes me very happy.

What a hobby!!!

CASEing the Catty #115 Sale-A-Bration

12371218_10153736740662158_9102306381153319857_o

Sunday again – they come around quickly!!!  I hope your weekend was fabulous!

Thanks for checking in with me tonight for the weekly CASEing the Catty Sunday blog hop.

Hopefully you’ve joined our new Facebook page and are following all the wonderful projects that fellow crafters have been uploading.


This week we are CASEing (copying and sharing everything or copying and selectively editing – depending on which you prefer!) the Sale-A-Bration catalogue again.

There’s so much goodness in there!  Did you see that there’s 3 new Sale-A-Bration items you can redeem from 21st Feb???  Check out the graphic at the end of this post for a sneaky peak at them!

CASEing the Catty #115

As you follow this hop around, you’ll find projects made by the CTC Crew that were inspired by the sample photos on pages 8-11 of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

One of my favourite Sale-A-Bration samples is the wedding card on the left below – made with the Delicate Details stamp set.  I love the styling & colours!

Images © Stampin' Up!

It’s hard to improve on perfection, but I had a go at MITMO ‘making it my own’ – do you love this variation on the idea of CASEing (thanks to Deborah Harris for sharing it!).

I combined it with the Cupcakes & Carousels embellishment pack – the gold foil die cuts are out of this world for loveliness and the ribbon is ombre!!!

Here is my version…

CASEing the Catty #115 - Sale-A-Bration. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

I changed the sentiment so that I could use the card personally – it was too sweet to end up in my ‘for later’ or ‘for sale’ card stashes!

“All Things Thanks” was a stamp set I bought as a bit of an indulgence, but I’ve gotten so much use out of it!  The stamps are quite detailed, but if I just need a ‘thanks’ or ‘thank you’ I mask out the specific detail with masking tape and carry on stamping!  I’ve even cut one of the stamps into two pieces!

Next up on the hop is the fabulous creativity of Elizabeth Gross

CASEing the Catty #114 Sending Love

12371218_10153736740662158_9102306381153319857_o

Hi there!  As we get closer to a big week of love, today at CASEing the Catty, we’re being inspired by the “Sending Love” pages of the Occasions catalogue – pages 14-19.

Images © Stampin' Up!

When I say a big week of love, I’m not kidding in my house.

Next week sees Valentine’s Day, our wedding anniversary and Miss Papercraft’s 6th birthday.

There’s a few cards still to make on my to-do list!  I should have multi-tasked, but there was a photo in the catalogue that I couldn’t go past.

I’m totally in love with the cute images from the Moon Baby stamp set, and love the catalogue sample.

Images © Stampin' Up!

But it was the ‘swirly’ type embellishment that caught my eye.

This and the cute bow die was the sole reason I bought the Balloon Pop Up Thinlits!!!

So, when I saw it in the catalogue, mixed with the Moon Baby stamp – I knew I had to CASE it!


I wanted a softer, more traditional colour pallette for my baby cards, so I created pink & mint versions.

The dotty background was a bolder version of the subtle splatter on the sample card.  I made it by stamping the spotty stamp from the Perpetual Birthday stamp set in Blushing Bride or Mint Macaron, Smoky Slate & gold heat embossing.

CASEing the Catty #114 Sending Love. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

I swapped the rectangle for the largest stitched circle – because so in love with those framelits.  And it’s all about love this week!

And finished the card off with the sweet ‘twinkle twinkle’ sentiment from the stamp – gold embossed of course!


Thanks for sharing another blog hop with me!  I hoping you’re enjoying all the weekly inspiration from my blog and my stamping friends.

Next up is the lovely Elizabeth Gross & her take on the same photo inspiration – you’ll love what she’s created!!!
