CASEing the Catty - Anything Goes

Hi there and welcome to addINKtive designs.  Thanks for joining us on our Friday night CASEing the Catty Blog Hop.  The CTC Crew are a group of Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators who love to use the SU Catalogue for inspiration.

This week it's 'Anything Goes'.  The crew's challenge - CASE (Copy and Share Everything) a project that really caught your eye the first time you flicked through the catty.  All I can say is, I had quite a few lovely projects in mind but settled on a card from page 95 of the brand new annual catalogue, as the World of Dreams stamp set is one of my faves and using the Fancy Foil Designer Vellum for the base of the card was such a neat idea that I just had to CASE!
Here's my card -

To make mine a little different, I added some gold sequins, included the bird stamp on the doily and used the five new gorgeous In Colours:  Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe.

Here's the original design on page 95 -

Next on the hop is my lovely roomie and Convention buddy, Rebecca Scurr - 
Thanks for hopping by.  I hope you are enjoying the projects for our 'Anything Goes' week.


I like that you included the bird and nest in your card - I think it finishes the card off oh so nicely!

I agree with Kathryn, that bird stamp on the front is a wonderful addition. How clever to use the incolours, they look great. I love the use of the gold foil vellum as a card base. I have never thought to do that before.

Well Bronwyn this is stunning. And you sent me back to check the catalogue..... That's what is so great about CASEing. I have never thought to make a card base from vellum-and I didn't see it in the catalogue either! Love how bright and fresh your version looks and the gold bling is perfect. Think I'm off to check my vellum stash....

I agree with everyone else. Gorgeous card and fantastic idea using the vellum as a base!

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink

1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.

This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.

2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.

3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.

4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).

5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp…
