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.

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.

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.

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.

CASEing the Catty #110 Party Animal

12371218_10153736740662158_9102306381153319857_o

Hey there!  Welcome to our first CASEing the Catty blog hop of the year.

We’re hopping around Australia & New Zealand to share projects with you that were inspired by the photos from current Stampin’ Up! catalogues.

New year – new format.  So for 2017, we’re moving to Facebook as our main platform (rather than the CTC blog).

We’ll still be having a weekly blog hop, but all entries will be uploaded to our CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge Facebook page.  Click here to request to join us for all the fun.

As well as being excited about the new format, we’re also buzzing with the new products from Sale-A-Bration and Occasions 2017 catalogues last week.  Two new catalogues to CASE and inspire!

Today it’s all about the Party Animal section of the 2017 Occasions Catalogue – pages 4-7.

The Party Animal suite is all about bold colours & fun animal images.

Although I love the card samples in the catalogue, it was the ceramic animal figures that I was drawn to – particularly the elephant.

And how “lucky” that the new catalogue also contains a fabulous elephant stamp set!!!

This super cool dude inspired my first card.

I inked up the Lucky Elephant stamp in Versamark, stamped it directly onto the DSP and heat embossed with white powder.

I finished it off with a party hat (just like in the catalogue), some white twine, a bold Curry Curry card base and a birthday sentiment.


I always forget that stamping & colouring DSP is an option- but I should do it more often, it’s awesome!

No time like the present.. So I made 2 more embossed elephants using different DSP patterns from the Party Animal pack.

Do you love the textured balloons?  They are from the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits dies – so many fabulous pieces!

And those birthday senitments???  They are from the Balloon Adventures stamp set, which is part of the Party Animal suite.

You can buy the thinlits & stamp set together for just $90.75 and save yourself 10%.

Want to hear something else awesome?  They balloons in this suite match the existing Balloon Bouquet punch!!!


Next stop on the hop is the wonderful Tricia Raineri.
