CASEing the Catty #85 - For Babies + Kids

Welcome to the latest CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. The Design Team exclusively use SU products for their CTC projects. We CASE (copy and share everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combo, embellishment, to name a few examples, as a springboard for our own creations.

I'm so glad you've joined the hop.  If you get lost along the way, just click on the banner below to take you to our home blog where you will see a list of participants for this round -

This week we are CASEing projects from the For Babies + Kids (pages 56-65) section of the Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue -

My project for CTC #85 would have to be one of the easiest cards I've ever made.  I've used the cute images from the Made with Love Stamp Set (page 59) ...

... and CASED the card from page 62  -


The layout was changed from landscape to portrait, I inked up a different stamp set to the one featured in the catty and the colours were switched for a baby boy card.

I hope you are enjoying the projects so far. You can hop back to Monique Fielder or onward to Rachel Palmieri -

Every month we have a challenge link up where you can join in the fun too.  The link below will take you to our July challenge -

Thanks for hopping by,

I did NOT see this card in the catalogue, but like it so much, I think I might have to CASE this too. Thanks for drawing it to my attention.

I was drawn to this card in the catty & was on my short list for a CASE, so I am so glad you chose it. Those made with love animals are adorable & just perfect for this card. This is a great colour combo for a baby card too!

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…
