CTC202 – Favourite Holiday Tags

CTC-BlogBanner

Tags!!! Yay…. I love them. These useful functional little stationery items can be the cutest little works of art. Or they can be a simple little creation, the possibilities are endless. Welcome to another week of Caseing The Catty, where we are drawing inspiration from tags in Holiday catalogue. Welcome if you are joining me here or if you have hopped over from Rebecca.

CTC202

My inspiration came a little differently for this challenge. Instead of using a tag design for inspiration, I used a card and created a tag from that…. this is where my inspiration came from…

I love the elements and I thought this would look great on a tag. So I recreated the elements to work on a tag layout. This is how it turned out….

Creating tags are a great way to use up scrap pieces of cardstock and designer paper left over in weird shapes from other projects. Here I had this piece of DSP from the All is Bright designer paper pack and I just loved how the bauble was still in tacked. So I created a longer tag to suit this element too. Then created the feature element to sit beneath it.

First I used the Tailored Tag punch and a thin piece of scrap in another designer from All is Bright pack, but just punched out the top half, then a bottom half. They are not really halves though, it just looks that way, but I used up a strip of DSP, that was just waiting for it’s turn to shine.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, All is Bright, Merry Christmas to all, All is Bright paper clips

I stamped my sentiments and fussy cut them to fit they way I wanted them too and adhered them on, with dimensionals, over the punched shape pieces. I adhere a star paper clip from the All is Bright Paper Clip pack at the top and adhere the “wishes” sentiment on an angle to match.

Finishing off the tag with a red circle punched shape and some Call Me Clover ribbon, brought it all together.

Next up in the hop is Judy.

CTC196 – Santa’s Workshop

CTC-BlogBanner

Oh my… have you actually really really looked at the suite of products on offer in this section of the catalogue? It. Is. De.Vine…. sigh….  (insert dreamy eye emoji!)

CTC196

This is the section of the holiday catalogue the Caseing The Catty Crew are focussing on for this week’s hop. Welcome if you are joining me here or if you have hopped over from the lovely Julia Quinn.

The thing about the products in this suite is, you have to feel them. The Designer Paper is flocked, meaning it has raised texture and the Memories and More cards have glitter adhered on, so they too have raised texture and sparkly to match! The other thing is the dies fit the little characters printed on the Designer paper, and some of the circle punches will punch out all the little extras – candy canes, snowflakes and lollies – so there is little wastage. Notice how they are printed in lines too – you can cut strips and not decapitate poor ol’ Santa… he does have a tough job as it is huh!

There is so much to love with all of these products, but this week, I went in a different direction. You know I love all the idea in the catalogue too, so this weeks card came from inspiration from the “Have yourself a Merry Christmas” card design on the right on page 23.

2018_HOLIDAY_P023_500px

This is what I came up with.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! All is Bright DSP, Making Christmas Bright, Swirly Snowflake thinlit, Pretty Pines thinlits

Very Vanilla and Gold are the main colours and I have teamed them up with a splash of Real Red. The card is square and I have included a strip of Gold Glimmer paper layered with some of that yummy bauble design paper from the All is Bright suite. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set and die cut with an oval from the Stitched Shapes framelits.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! All is Bright DSP, Making Christmas Bright, Swirly Snowflake thinlit, Pretty Pines thinlits

The back of the sentiment is adorned with die cut elements in Gold Glimmer paper and Foil from the Swirly Snowflakes and Pretty Pines thinlits sets. I love mixing up my existing collection of toys with my new ones!

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! All is Bright DSP, Making Christmas Bright, Swirly Snowflake thinlit, Pretty Pines thinlits

I was wishing I had purchased the Red Rhinestones from the Annual Catalogue, but I keep forgetting to order them, so to substitute, I used the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and coloured some medium and small Pearls. This added the splash of colour I was looking for. To make the job of applying them soooo much easier, I used the new Take Your Pick tool – it has many options to help you along while crafting. Today, i used the palette knife to loosen the pearls off the backing of the packaging the come on, and the putty end to lift them and move them into place on my project. All those pearls, in place on my project in no time!

Next up in the hop is Fi Cobbin.

ESAD holiday Catalogue hop

ESAD-1

Welcome to the Holiday Blog Hop with the ESAD demonstrator group. There is more information about what ESAD is, if you are wondering about who we are, located at the bottom of this blog post. But right now, I’m really excited to show you what I’ve been up to with my new Holiday catalogue toys!

Welcome, if you are joining me here or if you have hopped over from Lauren Meiklejohn.

I have a cute a little card that doubles as a gift card holder to show you. I can’t take credit for the design, this came from another paper craft mob. I had a customer show me their project they completed recently at a craft fair and I took one look, flipped it over, turned it upside down and new how to create it. I just don’t know who the crafters were to credit them.

But I set about creating my own version and here it is.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Merry Christmas to All, Flourish Filigree, Gift card holder

Here I have used a number of new products from the Holiday catalogue as well as the Dashing Along Designer Series paper, which is a special promotion for hosts or customers with qualifying  workshop sales.

This first card uses the gorgeous Merry Christmas to All bundle, I’m just so in love with those thinlits, the flexibility they offer is great. I added some Champagne foil over the Designer paper, layered the Christmas die cut and stamped the Wishes to coordinate.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Merry Christmas to All, Flourish Filigree, Gift card holder

This is what the inside looks like. You could even use this pouch to hold some gift tags you may give as a gift.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Merry Christmas to All, Flourish Filigree, Gift card holder

Here I have added a simple mix of old and new products to create a little Christmas bouquet. It’s important to me, to make sure my new products play nicely with my existing ones, so I look the coordination between them. Here I have used the new Sprig punch and the carry over Pretty Pines thinlit dies.

I have stamped one of the sentiments from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set. There is room to write a message behind the gift card, which sits neatly in the pouch.

As I was creating this first card, I wondered what this design would look like when teamed up with some edgelits, so here is another one I created using the Delicate Lace Edgelits.

RosePacker18-62e

Again using another design in the Dashing Along paper pack and some more Champagne foil, I layered more of the Pretty Pines ferns in a tonal colour range – Garden Green and Soft Seafoam (is there another colour Soft Seafoam does not coordinate with?!)

The stamp is from the Flourish Filigree stamp set. I just love this set, it’s simple and can be used for many occasions. The inside featured more of that lovely paper and shapes from Stitched Labels Framelits and the Pretty Label punch, Circle framelits. The sentiment is new – it’s from the Dashing Deer stamp set.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Brushos, Thoughtful Banners, Merry Christmas thinlits

Using the “happy” from the Merry Christmas thinlit die set, I overlayed a background created using Brilliant Blue Brusho’s powder on some Shimmery White cardstock. The “fathers day” is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and is punched with the Classic label punch for a simple but effective card.

CTC194 – All is Bright

CTC-BlogBanner

Caseing the Catty this week, we are starting to look at the new Holiday catalogue which starts at in just a couple of days, September 5.

I’m so excited, there is a lot to like about that this Holiday catalogue and I know you will too when you are able to see it!

We are starting at the beginning of the catalogue, with the All is Bright suite, which contain some of my favourite products! I drew inspiration from a card design featured on page 10 of the catalogue.

CTC194

Here is my card.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses. Stampin' Up! All is Bright Suite, Merry Christmas thinlits, Merry Christmas to all, Shimmer paint

New products used here include the Merry Christmas to All stamp set, Merry Christmas thinlit and the gorgeous All is Bright Designer Paper. I’m just so in love with the new thinlit dies, I can see a range of uses past Christmas with the Happy thinlit. Plus when you couple those with the sentiments from the Stamp set, the options are endless.

I really like the Designer paper too, it has a great mix of photography and Christmas patterns. Here I have used the design which has those gorgeous golden baubles, which goes lovely with the Crumb Cake cardstock. I have stamped the corners with a flourish from the stamp set and topped off with a few pearls.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses. Stampin' Up! All is Bright Suite, Merry Christmas thinlits, Merry Christmas to all, Shimmer paint

I have used Cherry Cobbler for that splash of colour to accent. The Merry is from the thinlit set and here I have added two more embellishments – the All is Bright paper clips which has the star and the tree design and I also added some sparkle with the Champagne Shimmer paint. I made a solution of paint and rubbing alcohol in a spritz bottle and spritzed my card to add a lovely sparkle across my card.

You are going to love this catalogue, stay tuned on September 5 for the catalogue available online.

Next up in the hop, is the lovely Rachel Palmieri
