CASE-ing the Catty - Sale-a-bration Last Hurrah
March 26, 2017
Sale-a-bration finishes next Friday 31 March, so this week the CTC Crew are CASE-ing a project of our choice from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue or the Second Release brochure.
You may have come from looking at the inspiring project on Kathryn's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can start your journey here and continue by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.
This week, I'm CASE-ing the gold and white striped tin. I've had this in mind for a few weeks, so this was the perfect opportunity to do it. These tins are fabulous for storing your finished cards, embossing folders, washi tape, pearls and rhinestone embellishments and many more besides. I'm going to use my tin to take swaps to the next Stampin' Up! OnStage event that is just over 2 weeks away - woohoo! Love these events and we will get to see the new 2017-18 Annual Catalogue for the first time, plus get our own copy to pore over.
I've stayed with Night of Navy for the letters as it coordinates so well with the gold and white. The letters were die cut with the 'Large Letters Framelits', which were a fortuitous recent purchase. I cut a strip of card stock and adhered Sizzix adhesive sheet to it and then cut the letters. The result is instant stickers that make for a quick and mess-free embellishment. I removed the backing paper from a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and also adhered the adhesive sheet before cutting the flourish from the 'Flourish Thinlits' dies. I attached the S, W, P and S first and then partly adhered the flourish and wove it through the A.
Here is a close-up showing all the yummy sparkle. I did trim off one leaf behind the 'A' and re-positioned it. I didn't want anything too delicate for the embellishment, so I think this fits the bill. Now I have to get my act together so I will have something to put in it, lol.
|Card stock & Papers||Night of Navy, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper, Sizzix Adhesive Sheet (retired)|
|Accessories||Rhinestone Basic Jewels|
|Tools||Flourish Thinlits, Large Letters Framelits, Big Shot|
I had time to squeeze in one more project, although there were more that I would like to have done. This one is from the Sale-a-bration Second Release brochure. It isn't a particularly good photo, but hopefully you can see it is a clean and simple card using the 'Reverse Words' stamp set.
I have swapped to a portrait style card, still using the 'cheers' stamp in Sweet Sugarplum to match the glimmer paper at the top and bottom. I wanted this to be a congratulations type card, that you could give to a colleague or friend. I don't have any stamp sets with wine glasses, so I improvised using the little bird cage from the 'Builder Birdcage' stamp set the other way up. I wanted the final result to still have a clean look, so I've left lots of white space and not too much extra embellishment.
|Stamps||Reverse Words, Crazy about You|
|Card stock & Papers||Whisper White, Sugarplum Glimmer paper, Sweet Sugarplum|
|Ink||Versamark, Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry|
|Accessories||Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Playful Palette washi|
|Tools||Silver EP, Heat gun, Versamarker (not SU), Stampamajig, Copic marker|

Wow,, your tin is gorgeous. I love love love the flourish threaded through the letters. Just brilliant. And you are so clever to think of the bird swing as a glass upside down. So so clever! Thankyou for your fabulous inspiration.
