#CTC274 Casing Masculine cards of the Annual Catty

This week the crew are CASEing masculine cards from the annual catalogue. 

I've settled for the card at the top of this picture on page 35:

I've used the In Good Taste DSP with the Stitched Triangles dies. You can see the original had stamps for the middle panel but as I didn't purchase the bundle I've used DSP instead and the die is a bit smaller than the stamp. I've adhered all my triangles onto a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock and then matted it with Misty Moonlight. I've attached the panel to a base card of Cinnamon Cider with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

I've used Happiest of Birthdays for the greeting in Misty Moonlight on Whisper White cardstock and diecut using the Stitched Rectangles dies. 

I've attached some Bumblebee In-colour ribbon to the reverse of the diecut greeting and adhered to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals as well.

I've opted for no extra bling to let the DSP be the star of the show.

Thanks for stopping by. We would love to see your take on the CASE this week, make your project and add it to our Facebook page using the link over on the right before next Sunday evening.

Let's find out what our WA friend Siobhan has created:

Social Stamping - Out of the Box

Kelly Kent's Social Stamping Covid Blog Hop theme is Out of the Box this week and it certainly had us all thinking hard. I started down the track of using new product - as in getting it out of the box, and I've combined that with making a Pop Up Box card. Again that seems appropriate given the last one I made was for my demonstration in Perth last November.

I've used a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock for my box and mats of Whisper White with Flirty Flamingo as the feature panels on the top half and Cinnamon Cider for the bottom half.

The greeting is from Butterfly Gala in Black Memento ink on Whisper White - chopped up and the edges were run across the ink pad to frame them.

The little paw print is from the Pets Dies and I've used the negative so that I just had one paw, not the three the die cuts (although I thought after a circle punch would have been another option).

Next task was lots of fussy cutting from the Playful Pets DSP. 

To carry on with the theme, the big grumpy cat in the background is sitting on a box made from a scrap of Basic Gray cardstock,

The Flirty Flamingo cardstock was run through the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. I'm loving the texture this folder gives!

If you've ever owned a cat - you know they can have several personalities, and I love the look captured on this evil little black cat!

Next up we have my lovely CASEing the Catty crew friend, Siobhan:

#CTC272 CASE the Flowers of the Annual Catalogue Week 1

So many flowers in the annual catalogue to CASE which means you have plenty of choice this fortnight. Hope you'll play along using the link over on the right:

I haven't ventured too far in to find this cute picture on page 10:

I've used the stamp set Jar of Flowers, and stamped the jar in Misty Moonlight onto Whisper White card. I've added the leaves and flowers using Black Memento ink and coloured with Stampin' Blends of Poppy Parade, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party. 

I've wrapped (retired) Old Olive Baker's Twine around the card and adhered it to a mat of Poppy Parade. I stamped the greeting from Blossoms in Bloom onto a scrap of Smokey Slate with Black Memento Ink and adhered it to line up with the mat edge. Stampin' Dimensionals were added to the back of the Poppy Parade panel onto a card base of Old Olive with the bow added to finish.

This cute stamp set has a matching punch, and I'm sure it will get a lot of use in my craft room.
