CASEing the Catty #185 | Best Route

Life is chilly (and wet on some days) in the south-west corner of Australia at the moment.  Which makes it perfect crafting weather.  I confess to a few pyjama days lately spent at the craft table!  And perhaps plans for a few more!

Thanks for joining me tonight for CASEing the Catty where we take inspiration from the pages of the Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

This week it’s the Best Route suite and subsequent pages.

I seem to make a lot of baby cards for challenges!  This one was inspired by the pink dreamcatcher card on page 54.

The card is going to the parents of a little princess born during the week, so I kept the pretty Blushing Bride colour scheme.

Other colours in this card are silver embossing & foil, Blushing Bride watercolouring on Shimmery White and Rose Glimmer paper (new & improved).

The Follow Your Dreams stamp set & coordinating Chase Your Dreams Framelits are beautiful!

I added the Tufted Embossing Folder to the background layer – which I had previously overlooked in the catalogue, but quickly added because it’s gorgeous!!!

The personalised name pennant was made using the Pick a Pennant stamp set and that beautiful ribbon you see is from the Metallic Ribbon combo pack.

CASEing the Catty #181 | New Catalogue Love

Happy Sunday!  There’s always a creative buzz around new catalogue time as everyone gets excited about a 200+ page book of new ideas.

The CASEing the Catty Crew are all super excited about having new samples to CASE (copy & share everything)!!!

So, even though I posted earlier this afternoon with my ESAD stamping friends, I couldn’t resist making this a bumper Sunday and joining the CASEig the Catty hop too!

It’s an open theme today – with a whole catalogue to choose from, the Crew have lots of amazing new designs to share with you.

New catalogue = new beginnings, so I started at the beginning and CASEd the front over of the catalogue….

I love all those gorgeous colours on the white background!

This is how it looks when made into card form…

I used Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana & Gorgeous Grape with Blueberry Bushel in the middle.

I’m only missing Call Me Clover from the 2018-2020 In Colors.  How fun & bright are they!!!

The die cuts in each colour are carefully snipped from the floral piece in the Springtime Impressions Thinlits.  Then each piece was sponged with the colours I chose.

I filled in the some of the white space around the die cuts with stamps from the Pick A Pennant stamp set.  We got this at OnStage – and it although it’s designed to make pretty banners, it was perfect for this card!

The Happy Birthday is a returning favourite – I’m so glad we get to play with this for another year!!

There’s so much to love about the new catalogue.  If I can help with any questions about the new catalogue, please let me know!

Next up on the CTC blog hop – also sharing in lots of new catalogue love this afternoon – is the gorgeous Kathryn Mangelsdorf.

If you have a copy of the new catalogue, or you’re able to download the pdf copy to view on your computer/tablet, please join us for challenge #181.  All the action is on our Facebook page.  You don’t have to own new catalogue items to join the fun.  It’s the perfect opportunity to use all the new inspiration with the sets you already own.

Happy new catalogue!
