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!

Global Design Project #077 – Pocket Shaker Card

It’s a bit quieter for me this week with blog hops, so I thought I’d take a pause from all the cards on my to-do list and just make – for the total fun of making!!!

I have no idea who I will give this card to, or what is it for (yet), but it sure was fun to make!

It combined a few of the things that have been on my mind lately – linking in for another Global Design Project challenge, using my sewing machine and creating a shaker pocket.

This is the GPD #077 colour challenge

My free choice was Flirty Flamingo to brighten up the existing trio.

I love the base colours the team has chosen – they could go anywhere!!!

I went bright, sparkly – and of course, fun!

I loved putting together the shaker pocket!

I sewed around 2 sheets of window sheet with my old clunky sewing machine, leaving a small gap at the top.

Using a straw I filled it with the Sprinkles embellishments and then without the straw, slid in some sequins I pulled off the Bermuda Bay sequin trim.

This then gave me the cute twine you see for the bow at the top.

I always find it tricky to photograph reflective surfaces!  Here’s a another picture.

It shows the colours better than the full sun pics above – but can you see the shadow of my phone & hand?  Eek!  I’m going to a photography course on Monday – so lets see if that helps me!!!

Thanks to GDP for hosting a great colour challenge!

I love the element of choice!  Be sure to head over the GDP gallery to see the other entries (and may upload one of your own?)!!
