This week we are CASE-ing a project of our choice from the 2022 January-June Mini Catalogue.  

CTC352_SU_Sample
I've used the card above for my inspiration. It is a fairly simple card using the lovely Flowing Flowers stamp set. This is a DistINKtive™ style stamp set, so there is a lot of built-in shading with just one impression of the stamp. It has 6 sentiments in great font combos as well.

I've stayed close to the layout, stepping it up with some extra layers, textures and embellishments. I started with a Thick Basic White card base and added a layer of Polished Pink card stock that I dry embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

For the art panel I've stamped the smaller floral image with the leaves a few times and masked it to add leaves and some random splatters in other areas. The larger floral image was stamped separately with the Stamparatus using Polished Pink ink and I used a sponge dauber and Melon Mambo ink to add some extra colour in the heart in the heart of the flower, before fussy cutting and popping it up over the leaves. The art panel was adhered to a panel of Just Jade card stock leaving a narrow border.

The birthday greeting from the Blessings of Home stamp set was stamped in Polished Pink ink and I flagged the ends before adding to a mat of Just Jade card stock.  I wrapped a few strands of white Baker's Twine around the art panel and finished it with a bow underneath the popped up greeting. The art panel was popped up on the Polished Pink mat and I added some extra fussy cut leaves under the large flower and finished with pearls in the large flower, on the greeting and under the twine.

I've kept the inside simple, with a mat of Polished Pink card stock for the writing panel and the larger flower partially stamped in the corner.

CASE-ing the Catty - Sale-a-bration!

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty for this week! 

If you've come from visiting  Peta & Marvi, then welcome! If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today!  You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the CTC Crew by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.

This week we are CASE-ing the 2022 January-February Sale-a-bration brochure.  There are lots of great samples in the brochure that you can use for inspiration and to kickstart the creative process, even if you don't have the specific products used.

CTC351_SU_Sample
I chose the card above for my inspiration. It was the brightly coloured stripes at the top and the scalloped border that caught my attention.  When I looked closer, I realised the coloured stripes was actually one of the designs from the fabulous Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper that is a FREE Sale-a-bration item you can choose with a $90AUD order. Unfortunately, it isn't currently available in Australia due to shipping delays (unloading the ship in Australia), but hopefully that will be fixed soon.

Stampin' Up! Abstract Beauty DSP & Special Moments Stamp Set (Sale-a-bration) | Judy May, Just Judy Designs

As I don't have the  Rainbow of Happiness Bundle or the coordinating Sunshine & Rainbows DSP, I decided to use the pretty pierced and scalloped border from the Scalloped Contour Dies with the bright floral design from the Abstract Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card. The striped designer paper at the top would be replaced with strips of card stock.

Stampin' Up! Abstract Beauty DSP & Special Moments Stamp Set (Sale-a-bration) | Judy May, Just Judy Designs
I started with a Thick Basic White card base and added my bright strips of card stock at the top. I took the colours from the designer paper and cut them 2.3cm wide to create the narrow white space at the junction of the scallops. The scalloped border was adhered next and I decided to add a narrow band of Gold Foil to echo the gold foil accents in the designer paper. The greeting from the Special Moments stamp set (also a Sale-a-bration option you can choose with a $180AUD order) was stamped in Magenta Madness ink and popped up on a piece of Just Jade card stock. I've used the Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon underneath the greeting as it is very close to Magenta Madness. I finished with a trio of the cute Brushed Brass Butterflies embellishments.

For the inside, I have a mat of Magenta Madness cardstock and the edge of the writing panel has been cropped with the scalloped border die and finished with the band of Gold Foil and a narrow strip of the designer paper.

CASE-ing the Catty - Front Cover 2022 Mini Catalogue

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

Happy New Year and welcome to CASE-ing the Catty! I hope you've had an enjoyable holiday season and are now relaxing after the hectic preparations and lots of food!

If you've come from visiting  my lovely friend Tina, then welcome! If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today!  You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the CTC Crew by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.

This week we are CASE-ing the front cover of the brand new 2022 January-June Mini Catalogue. You can commence purchasing from the catalogue from 4 January, so just a couple more sleeps to go.  Not forgetting we also have Sale-a-bration commencing as well, so you can earn some FREE product with an order of $90AUD or more, before shipping. Due to the ongoing, worldwide supply chain issues, there will be a few products that won't arrive in time for 4 January, but hopefully they won't be too far away. 

The card on the front cover uses the beautiful Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper and the Tulip Fields Bundle. For my card, I've used the Hello Friendly stamp set and coordinating Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper, which together are a Level 2 Sale-a-bration reward for a $180AUD order. 

Stampin' Up! Friendly Hello Stamp Set & DSP | 2022 Jan-June Sale-a-bration | Judy May, Just Judy Designs
The main elements to the sample card are the frame, positioned wider at one end; the strip across the bottom of the frame and the embellishment. I cut my frame using the Stitched Rectangles Dies and the pretty striped designer paper. I've flipped my wide end around, as it worked better with the large greeting I stamped onto the Fresh Freesia designer paper in black before popping up the frame with Foam Adhesive Strips.  

Stampin' Up! Friendly Hello Stamp Set & DSP | 2022 Jan-June Sale-a-bration | Judy May, Just Judy Designs

For the band at the bottom I have used the new white 3/4" Frayed Ribbon that has a soft, slightly fuzzy texture and then added the Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon over the top. The flowers from the Hello Friendly stamp set were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Stampin' Blends and fussy cut on the line. I finished with a trio of the new Brushed Brass Butterflies. These cuties are self-adhesive, so super easy to use.

CASE-ing the Catty - 2021 July-December Mini Catalogue

Hi there

Welcome to the final week of CASE-ing the Catty for this year!

This week we have free reign to CASE  from the 2021 July-December Mini Catalogue. This will be our last look at this Mini Catalogue as the new 2022 January-June Mini Catalogue commences on 4 January. 

CTC349_SU_Sample

 I have selected the sample project above from page 54 of the Mini Catalogue for my inspiration. The frame using the Cork 12" x 12" Specialty Paper caught my eye. I think we are all pretty much over Christmas cards, so I decided to finish the year with a sneak peek of some new products from the 2022 January-June Mini Catalogue.

Stampin' Up! Daffodil Daydream Bundle | Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I started with a piece of Basic White card stock and added the Balmy Blue checked design from the new Abstract Beauty 4" x 6" Specialty Designer Paper. It is a pack of 48 sheets the perfect size for card making. I just trimmed a little from the bottom and it was ready to adhere. There are lots of fun designs and I can see that I'm going to use this one a lot. I cut my frame from the Cork Specialty Paper using two of the Stitched Rectangles Dies nested together.  This paper is quite thin, so I adhered it to a piece of Crumb  Cake card stock first, so it would be more robust when I popped it up. I stamped some of the spatters in Misty Moonlight ink before adhering the frame. 

Stampin' Up! Daffodil Daydream Bundle | Judy May, Just Judy Designs
I used the large daffodil image from the new Daffodil Daydream stamp set, which has the coordinating Daffodil Dies to crop the images. The image was coloured with Stampin' Blends and I lightly colour the centre areas of the image with Balmy Blue, so it would blend better with the Balmy Blue background. I stamped and coloured the daffodil at the top a second time and fussy cut it and popped it over the top for extra dimension. The 'thanks' was die cut using the new Amazing Thanks Dies. I chose to use it with optional shadow to make it stand out a bit more against the cork. 

Stampin' Up! Daffodil Daydream Bundle | Judy May, Just Judy Designs
For the inside, I have a Balmy Blue mat for the writing panel and a strip of the cork paper at the bottom. I've stamped and coloured the smaller Daffodil image in the Daffodil Daydream stamp set and fussy cut it on the line.

This week we have a sketch challenge based on the project above, from page 47 of the 2021 July-December Mini Catalogue.CTC348_Sketch

This diagram shows more clearly the key elements of the sketch, with the angled element on the left and the bow cutting across at the point.

Stampin' Up! Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP & Poinsettia Dies | Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I've created a very soft Christmas card using the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Paper. I have to say, this paper has grown on me over time and today I've used the soft colours in the holly print as the basis for my card. I cut a card sized piece of Basic White and added the Mint Macaron diamond print before stamping the greeting from the Christmas to Remember stamp set at the bottom in Mossy Meadow ink. I positioned a piece of Blushing Bride card stock on top to create the angle and then traced around it and cut the shape. It was then easy to add the holly print, leaving a narrow border on two sides and trimming the other two sides, before adhering to the panel. The Blushing Bride Baker's Twine was wrapped around the panel and tied in a bow.

Stampin' Up! Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP & Poinsettia Dies | Judy May, Just Judy Designs
I used the (retiring) Poinsettia Dies to cut and emboss the layers of the flower from Snowy White Velvet Sheet. All the layers can be cut and embossed at the same time, making it quite quick.  A little Blushing Bride ink was added to the edges of the flower with a sponge dauber to give the layers a little more definition. The layers were offset and I finished with three Evening Evergreen rhinestones from the 2021-23 In Color Jewels. The foliage was die cut from silver foil and position around the Poinsettia.

Stampin' Up! Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP & Poinsettia Dies | Judy May, Just Judy Designs

For the inside, I have a Mint Macaron mat for the writing panel and I added a strip of the designer paper on the right, with the same Blushing Bride border I used on the front. A fussy cut holly sprig was added to the bottom left corner.

This is a great layout for using your coordinating designer papers and is quite addictive, so be warned!

CASE-ing the Catty - Favourite Mini Bundle

CTC347_Banner

This week we are CASE-ing our favourite bundle from the 2021 July-December Mini Catalogue. My stand out favourite from this catalogue has to be the Merriest Moments Bundle. It has everything you need to create beautiful cards with the Merriest Moments stamp set and coordinating Merriest Frames Dies and the fabulous Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder. So many options to mix and match and the stamp set has lovely sentiments in a great mix of fonts.  

CTC347_SU_Sample

 I have selected the sample project above from page 43 of the Mini Catalogue for my inspiration. I like the layout and the background stamping but the colours don't really do anything for me. I have recently seen gorgeous pink potted Poinsettia plants at my local hardware store, so I decided to go for a brighter colour combo.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments Bundle | Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I started with a piece of Basic White card stock and stamped the ferny branches in Just Jade ink, based on where I thought I would place the Poinsettia flowers and added the dots in Polished Pink. I thought it looked a bit plain, so I ran it through with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder to add some texture and interest. I added the panel to a Pool Party card base.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments Bundle | Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I stamped the greeting from Merriest Moments stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink onto a strip of Pool Party and adhered it to a strip of Polished Pink leaving a wide border and added it to the card base. The Poinsettia flowers were stamped in Polished Pink ink and cropped with the coordinating die and offset. I added the centre piece in Silver Foil to lift it and finished with a large rhinestone in the centre. I decided to go with only 2 Poinsettia flowers, breaking the rule of threes, as I thought it looked nicer.  Some holly leaves and foliage were stamped in Just Jade ink and positioned around the flowers.  I finished with a trio of rhinestones.

CASE-ing the Catty - Colours of Blackberry Beauty

Hi there

Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty!

This week we are taking inspiration from the colours in the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper

CTC345_Blackberry_Beauty_Colours

Although this was intended more as an autumnal colour palette, I decided to take some of the designs from the paper and create a simple Christmas card. Given the state of the postal system, I'll be sending my cards early this year, so there isn't too much time left to get them made. Beautiful papers and a big bold greeting are the classic elements of a quick and easy card that still has a 'wow' for the recipient.

Stampin' Up! Blackberry Beauty Christmas Card | Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I started with a thick Basic White card base and added 2 panels of the rich berry tone designer paper. The one on the left has the gold foil leaf design and the one on the right has a small holly print. The designs were separated with a narrow band of Gold Foil. As these colours are so rich and bold, I've kept the layout very simple.

Stampin' Up! Blackberry Beauty Christmas Card | Judy May, Just Judy Designs
The large greeting from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set was heat embossed in gold  and I used the retired 2 1/2" Circle Punch to crop it, as it provided a little extra space around the text. It is popped up on the Gold Foil circle that was cropped with the Layering Circle Dies. I die cut one of the large layers from the Christmas Pinecone Dies in the brushed gold metallic paper and snipped out some of the pine branches to put under my greeting for extra dimension. I finished with a trio of Metallic Pearls.

For the inside, I have a Rich Razzleberry mat for the writing panel with a strip of the gold foiled design a the base. I finished with a couple of the brushed gold pine branches tucked into right corner.
