#CTC247 Holiday Catalogue Punch Project

The crew are using a Punch Project from the Holiday Catalogue this week:

I procrastinated way too much and that left me creating my card just in time to capture the photo in natural light - too many cute projects to choose from!  You've got all week - don't be like me, make your card and add it to our Facebook page using the link over on the right.

In the end I have settled on a card on page 27 using the Moose Punch:

I pretty much CASEd the layout and colours only swapping a couple of things. I opted not to use a punch, but the masking technique instead. 

I've used a base of thick Whisper White, and adhered a panel of the lovely Wrapped in Plaid Specialty DSP. I chose a piece that had Cherry Cobbler in it, so that it would tie in the colour of my inked greeting. On a separate piece of Whisper White, I've stamped my main image from Nature's Beauty in Early Espresso, and although the moose had a matching 'fill' image, I've left my image clean. I've inked another image on a scrap piece to fussy cut and used this as a mask. I've used a combination of Coastal Cabana and Pool Party inks to stamp the foliage. Finally I've stamped a greeting from Itty Bitty Christmas in Cherry Cobbler ink, although this #simplestamping project could be used for any occasion. This panel was then adhered to the base card overlapping the DSP.

Once I had finally decided, it took so little time to create, I actually felt a bit guilty. So I decided to make another:

Then I didn't want to see the little fox miss out, even though we don't have them in our country - he is just a bit cute

The wildlife all together: 

The colours I chose didn't actually look as though they would work with the DSP I went with, however the beauty of Stampin' Up! is that all the colours work so well together, even if they aren't in the same family.

Time now to visit the lovely Peta and her super cute project - think I may have to CASE her!


  1. Your cards look amazing. The Nature’s Beauty Stamp Set looks great.

  2. Great cards, Sandra. I like yours much more than the sample. The background trees look super.

  3. I love these, Sandra! Such a cute layout and I love seeing the three different versions. The rabbit one would make a cute Easter card with a pretty floral paper instead of the tartan. And the fun fact for the day that you've taught me is that there are no foxes in NZ! I did not know that!

  4. Gorgeous cards Sandra, the "wildlife" look so good masked in front of the treed background.

  5. What a great set of cards!! I love the bunny one the best!!
