CTC160 – Picture Perfect Party Pages

Today I played along CASEing the Catty Challenge, caseing the Picture Perfect Party Suite pages from the Occasions Catalogue.

I chose a card from page 4 .

2018001a

Products Used:

  • Picture Perfect Birthday Photopolymer Stamp Set
  • Whisper White Card Stock
  • Emerald Envy Card Stock
  • Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock
  • Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper
  • Emerald Envy Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Night of Navy Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Lemon Lime Twist Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Banner Triple Punch
  • Fast Fuse Adhesive
  • Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals

The first thing I decided on with this card is to use the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper and that help with deciding on the colour scheme.

I cut two 2″ strips of the DSP and used the Banner Triple Punch to create the banners.  I topped the banner on the left with a 2″ piece of Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock and took my Paper Snips to create the fringe.

2018001b

I adhered the banners to the A6 Thick Whisper White Card Stock, making sure to trim the banners where necessary.

I took a piece of Emerald Envy Card Stock and stamped the sentiment with the Picture Perferct Birthday Photopolymer Stamp Set in Emerald Envy Ink.  I then took a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and stamped the same sentiment with Night of Navy Ink and cut out the ‘Of’ and ‘To you’ and adhered it over the top with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Before I adhered the sentiment to the card with the Stampin’ Dimensionals I took the the sprinkles looking stamp and doubled stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist Ink.

CTC140 – For Babies & Kids

I have been really enjoying playing along with all these different challenges during this past week. Today I am playing along with CASEing the Catty 140. CASEing samples from the For Babies & Kids section of the Annual Catalogue (page 102 – 111).

I chose to case the card on page 109 that features the No Bones About It photopolymer stamp set.

For my card I used the You're Delightful hostess stamp set.

How I made this card:

  • The card case is A6 thick Whisper White.
  • I randomly stamped the speech bubble stamps across the card front in Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist and Flirty Flamingo.
  • I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Whisper White in Flirty Flamingo and filled in the letters with Clear Wink of Stella.
  • I added on some Silver 1/4" Natural Trim, Silver 1/8" Ribbon and Silver Sequins.

I love the final outcome of this card and have really started to embrace using ribbons and trims.

Here is the challenge if anyone wanted to join me.

And until next time… Happy Stampin',

I really love how this card turned out.  I only just bought the Label Me Pretty Bundle and have fallen in love with it.  And I love the texture of the linen thread, I’m not big on using ribbons and trims but I really want to get into using them more.
