CASEing the Sale-A-Bration Catty - #CTC64

Hi there!  Welcome to another CASEing the Catty Sunday Night Blog Hop.  This round we are CASEing (copying and selectively editing) something that takes our interest from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.

The card that I am sharing tonight is not really my usual style - I rarely do masculine cards or cards that are 'flat' or quick and easy to make.  I usually do pretty, feminine, 3D and complicated! ... LOL

My downline, De Arn, lent me this SAB set, Sky is the Limit and lots of other new sets and dies for a week over the summer break; so I made the most of the opportunity and whipped up quite a few cards in that time. I will return the favour very soon as I'm now a busy bee back at work for the start of a new school year.

For my card I CASED the layout on page 18 (Hello card with Butterflies) and used the colour combo on page 16 - Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Black.

Thanks so much for hopping by and supporting the CTC Blog Hop!

Up next is Tricia Raineri from The Speckled Sparrow ... She has a very cool card fold to share.

Way cute Bron, love the colour combination and the detail, the gold button is perfect too.

Your masculine card might be flat but that plane certainly pops against the Bermuda Bay. It's a real winner & perfect for a quick male card.

Very sweet, especially the coloured heart.

I love that the inspiration comes from the hello card!!! Great idea, and the bemuda bay background is awesome!!
Judy May said…
Love this card, Bronwyn. The pop of Bermuda Bay really makes it.
Rebecca said…
What a great boy birthday card!! Love it!

I love that we CASEd the same sample card but both are completely different. Your watercolour sky is fab!

Great CASE of the layout, Bron! It looks so different from the original with your chosen images & those colours really pop! :)
The wash technique was popular this week must try it out. This plane is set off really nicely on your card.

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!

Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -

Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the original card for this type of fold. I came up with the idea of adding the card inserts to a z-fold. A v…

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…
