Beautifully Detailed designer paper

This week, I’m playing along with the latest sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, #FMS371

fms final 371-001

I guess we loved the laser cut paper pack in the Annual catalogue so much, Stampin’ Up! thought we could use some more. So here I have used the new Beautifully Detailed Laser Cut paper pack from the Occasions Catalogue.

I really enjoy working with this type of paper, even though it can be a little tricky to handle, so I thought I’d share with you how I used here, on this card….

Here, I have started with a Basic Gray cardbase layer and I’ve used the Beautifully Detailed laser cut paper to layer over the base. The paper comes in Whisper White on one side and Petal Pink on the reverse. I’ve kept to the white for a clean look.

To make handling this type of paper easier, I try to handle it as little as possible. So for this card, it was a little easier to just lay the paper flat on my desk with the pink side facing up. I applied adhesive and then placed my card base down onto the designer paper. I pressed down to ensure it stuck well.

After a few minutes, I carefully lifted the cardstock and laser cut paper, turning it over to reveal the front. Then I simply snipped off the paper, using my cardbase as the guide.

Next, I set about decorating the front. I used a stip of that amazing Lovely Lipstick foil sheets, from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue. I topped this with a square piece of Whisper White cardstock and using the Detailed Trio punch, I rounded the corners and punched a decorative element to just one of them.

I finished off with a simple “hello” sentiment from the Floral Frames stamp set, which I punched used the circle die from the Stitched Label Frames framelits.

CTC212 – Sale-a-bration

CTC-BlogBanner

Caseing The Catty team are hopping with more Sale-a-Bration ideas this week. Welcome if you are joining me from Rachel or if you are starting here with me.

This week I took inspiration from this card on page 10 of the Sale-a-Bration catalogue.

In the catalogue, this picture is only tiny and you only see a small section of the card, but my inspiration came from liking the layout. I love the simplicity and how clean it is even with all the leaves detail on the side there. I didn’t have all those exact dies, but I love how you can substitute with what you have to create a similar look. Here is where my card finished up…

I went with a cardbase in Highland Heather, really loving the new shades of purple in the colour collections. On top, I layered some Designer Series Paper from the Subtles 6×6 pack, in Highland Heather to coordinate.

My decorative elements are leaves from the Foliage Frames Framelits set in Tranquil Tide and Soft Seafoam cardstock. The sentiment is from the Forever Lovely stamp set, new in the Occasions catalogue, and is stamped in Tranquil Tide ink. I have punched it out using the largest of the dies from the Stitched Labels Framelits, and finished off with a little of the Whisper White Sheer Ribbon tied in a simple bow.

Next up in the hop, is the lovely Michelle Strazds.

CTC182 – Tea Room Suite

CTC-BlogBanner

It’s so exciting here at Casing The Catty as we begin looking at all the amazing ideas in the Annual Catalogue. Welcome if you are starting here with me, or if you have hopped over from Sandra, this week we are focussing on the Tea Room suite – pages 13 to 25 of the Annual Catalogue suite.

My inspiration came from this card on the main suite page image, as pictured above in this weeks image.

I just loved both the balance of elements in the design and the colours. There are a number of elements I liked about this, the main one was the stitching detail around the Designer Paper. Whilst I don’t own a sewing machine to recreate this exactly, I was able to get the flavour of it with one of my dies.

I choose bold colours – well, that’s me isn’t it… bold…. Focusing on Blueberry Bushel and Lovely Lipstick, but then softened it off with some Soft Seafoam. Here take a look…

For my card today, I used the Stitched All Round bundle, which is a clear favourite right now! I just love the added texture the stitched detail gives. Here I replicated the stitching element in the catalogue sample, with one of the Stitched Edgelits that comes in the set.

First, I stamped my background and adhered the designer paper in place (this pattern is from Tranquil Textures), then layered the edgelit on my card and offset my top cutting plate so that the pattern would appear where I needed it. By doing this, I was able to make a frame around my designer paper.

Using another of the texture dies in framelit set and our new Embossing platform configuration, I was able to create more texture on the bottom half of the designer paper.

The top half featured the sentiment medallion. I just love this sentiment stamp that comes in the Stitched All Round stamp set –  as soon as I read this, one of my friends (who is in my team) jumped into my mind. She says this all the time and it’s just her! Love you Julie!! I had here in my mind while creating this.

Here I stamped it in Blueberry Bushel ink on Soft Seafoam cardstock, punched and layered with Layering Ovals framelits and some Blueberry Bushel cardstock. Using some dimenionals, I adhered this to a larger decorative stitched framelit from the set. This I punched from Lovely Lipstick cardstock to give it a colour burst. I tied some ribbon at the bottom in Lipstick to coordinate, which finished it off.
