CTC162 – Sweet Soiree


This week at Caseing The Catty we are focusing on the Sweet Soiree suite in the Occasions catalogue. I know you are in for a real treat with all the inspiration shared by the Design crew this week.


I went for something a little different this time. This week, I was inspired by one of the products in particular that make up this suite. It’s one of those ones where the photo in the catalogue doesn’t do it justice. It’s the cute little Embellishment kit.

If you have followed my blog for a while, you’ll know I just love these kits. I feel like I’m breaking open a block of chocolate when I open these kits – they give me the same feeling of anticipation of of discovering the goodies inside!


The kit is made up of printed die cut elements, all featuring silver foil print. There are even silver foil print on vellum and these are just spectacular. Plus the pack has some thin striped silver washi tape, white mini clothes pegs, gorgeous little tassels with silver tips and lovely scallop edge velvet trim.

So much to work with, all of these items inspired me to create this…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Sweet Soiree, Memories and More, Sale-a-bration

Here I teamed them up with one of the card from the Sweet Soiree Memories and More card pack. These are a Sale-a-bration exclusive item that you can choose for FREE with every $90 purchase.

I wrapped some ribbon around the card before mounting it onto some Bermuda Bay cardstock. This ribbon, is a 3-pack of Shimmer Ribbon in Bermuda Bay, Basic Gray and Calypso coral. And another Sale-a-bration exclusive item. So many great things on offer this year!

I picked out the die cut elements I wanted to work with and arranged them on the card font. Using glue dots to adhere the vellum pieces behind and dimensions to fix on the top flower element. Finishing off with a bow to sit nicely in front.

I adhered this onto Whisper White thick cardstock base. It needed just something else, so picking out the Berry Burst in the flowers, I drew a freehand border around the cardbase edge.

There is so much to work with in this kit, I’m already planning my next blog post…

Next up in the hop is the amazing Rebecca Scurr…


After you’ve enjoyed the awesome hop with the team, I’m looking forward to seeing your CASE over in our challenge group. Be sure to load up your creation by 6pm next Sunday night, Jan 28th.


Until next time… Stamp Creatively,

  1. Oh my goodness your freehand border is so good! It finishes off your card perfectly. What a brilliant way to show off the embellishment kit and the coordinating memories and more cards. I love it all.


  2. Wow Rose! That looks great. I would never have thought to use Bermuda to set this off and yet it just works so well. Your border is awesome – I wish I could achieve that sort of look (by the time I get right round I’ve wandered off somewhere along the way!).


  3. Rose I love your card and am really jealous of your hand drawn lines around the edge, no matter how hard I try mine just don’t work! I didn’t realise there were so many pieces to the kit, thanks for sharing.
