CTC197 – Joyous Noel


This week’s hop with Caseing the Catty focusses on drawing inspiration from the Joyous Noel section of the catalogue, pages 28 to 35. Welcome if you have hopped over from Rebecca or if you are joining me here.


My inspiration this week came from the green card at the bottom is this pic. I love the sketch as it was simple and clean.


Here is how I used it.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Animal Outing, Stampin' Blends

I created a baby a card and christened my Animal Outing bundle! I had this one since the launch of the Annual in June but have only just used it now. It’s one of those ones you can have in your collection for just the perfect occasion. For me, it’s welcoming in a few little babies and these stamps are just perfect for that.

There are so many cute animals in this set, but today, I settled on the giraffe and the little frog, which I coloured using Stampin’ Blends.

I added a few decorative leafy elements – a die from the set and the leaf punch – layered nicely behind the largest of the circles in Stitched Shape framelit set.


These sit over some Designer Paper from the Tranquil Textures DSP pack on a cardbase in Soft Seafoam.

It came together pretty quickly once I studied my inspirational sketch, and I think it’s pretty cute.

Next up in the hop line up this week is Peta Stephen.


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, September 30th.


Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
