I'm Back with the Crew at CASEing the Catty with My Favourite Occasions' Catalogue Project

Hi there and welcome back to the first CASEing the Catty Sunday Night Blog Hop for 2016.  After a few months break from CTC, I'm excited to be back with the crew as we CASE (Copy and Share Everything) our way through the new Stampin' Up! Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogues.

We now have a brand new look thanks to our very talented Artisan, Jess Williams; also another huge thank you to Rebecca Scurr who now co-ordinates CTC and to the rest of the enormously talented crew who bring inspiration to our CTC readers every Sunday night. It's great to be back as I missed the camaraderie between the team; such a lovely group of ladies.

To kick start the year we are bringing you a CASE of our favourite project from the brand new Occasions Catalogue.  Have you seen it yet?  Oh my! Just click on my side bar to download the PDF so you can see all the beautiful new SU stamps and accessories for the season as we head into Valentines Day and Easter.

The card that I CASED is on the very last page of the catty (p 51) in the Hostess Section.  It features the largest die from the Butterflies Thinlits and the new Washi that is available for Hostesses only.  

Instead of washi tape, I used strips of the brand new Love Blossoms DSP underneath the butterfly, which was cut from the new Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper instead of vellum.  Such a gorgeous combination or as one member of the crew quoted, very Bohemian!

Here's my card -



Thanks for 'hopping' by!

Up next is the lovely Monique Fielder with her favourite CASE from the Occasions Catalogue -

Welcome back Bronwyn, I love your CASE this week. The glimmer paper really makes that card so pretty, and the accent of the little flower on the body is perfect.
Jess said…
I love how different your project looks compared to the sample just by changing the patterns underneath and adding that 'WOW' glimmer paper. Another gorgeous card for your collection Bron! Great to have you back!
Tricia said…
Welcome back Bronwyn! I love the extra texture & dimension you have added by using the strips of DSP & glimmer paper on your card. Oh & the bling is lovely too!
Rachel Palmieri said…
You're very clever using an old favourite with lovely new products, giving a delightful twist to this card. It is very nice to have you back on the crew, Bronwyn.
Lillybet said…
So good to have you back Bronwyn, and it's 100%fitting that your first card should have a butterfly on it!! (You are famous for butterfly cards after all) I just love the glimmer paper for the butterfly, and I'm glad you made this because I didn't even see that card in the catalogue before you made it.

What a "sending wishes"card Bronwyn! I love the new Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper and how you used the strips of Love Blossoms DSP beneath the butterfly cutout. Who wouldn't be deliriously happy receiving this beauty!

Welcome home, Bron! Love how you have tweaked the design to show off your gorgeous, glimmery butterfly & the extra subtle interest those splatters provide. :)

Wow, what a stunning card, Bronwyn. I loved the sample in the catty as well and it looks fabulous done with the DSP and Blushing Bride glimmer paper. Thanks for the inspiratio!
What a wonderful idea to use designer series paper, might just use some left overs that I have around. Thanks for the great inspiration.

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…
