CASE-ing the Catty - Easter Lilies Bundle

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty for this week! Happy Easter to all those celebrating this special time in the Christian calendar or taking the opportunity to gather with friends and family. I hope some chocolate treats found their way to your house!


I prefer to make my own chocolates so they are dairy free and I can make them as dark as we like by adding plenty of raw cacao and no refined sugar or other additives that we don't need in our lives! These are ginger flavour - so yum!

If you've come from visiting Michelle, 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 button at the bottom of the post. 


This week we are taking inspiration from the Bundles on pages 67-73 of the 2024 January-April Mini Catalogue. There are lots of great samples on these pages and it was difficult to choose. 


I chose the sample above from page 68 using the Easter Lillies Bundle. I liked the layout of the card with the two tones and diagonal placement. The scored lines are also a simple but effective way to add extra interest, but I didn't see that until I looked at a larger image as I was writing this post.  Something to remember for next time.

I don't own this bundle (you can't have it all, right?), but a lovely Demonstrator friend die cut a whole lot of pieces for me, so I could make an Easter card for my Mum.  The wonderful friends you make are one of the best aspects of belonging to the fabulous Stampin' Up! papercraft community.

When I saw this layout, I knew I was going to use the Highland Heather check paper, which is a favourite from the Flowering Zinnias DSP (new in Online Exclusvies this month). I cut a card front-sized piece of Basic White and blended Highland Heather ink in the bottom right section, leaving it a little lighter in the centre. I decided to make this a sympathy card, although it would also be perfect for Easter as well. The sentiment from the Heartfelt Hexagon stamp set was stamped in the bottom right corner in black ink. I adhered the check paper to the top left corner and then thought it needed a bit of pop, so I butted a narrow strip of Gold Foil against the paper.

The Easter Lilies Dies include all the pieces to create your own 3D lilies, in additon to cropping the stamped images. The petals and stamens were cropped from (retired) Shimmery White card stock, which gives you some options if you want to do a little watecolouring. I used a blending brush and Granny Apple Green ink to add some colour to the base of each petal and then a watercolour pencil to add some finer details and a Blender Pen to soften the pencil. The lines in the petals are cut by the dies to add a more realistic look.  I adhered the first 2 layers together with 1mm foam pads and then added the stamens flat at the bottom end, but with a foam pad in the centre to lift them off the petals. The final two smaller pieces were also adhered with 1mm foam pads.

There are 2 shapes of leaves which were cropped from Old Olive and Mossy Meadow card stock. I added Granny Apple Green ink to the Old Olive leaves and Old Olive ink to the Mossy Meadow leaves to give them some shading. The leaves were popped around the flower after it was adhered to the card.  I finished with a trio of the lovely Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearls. This is a very dimensional card (which I love), but you can make it flatter if postage is an issue.

For the inside I normally add an extra writing panel, but as I wanted to add a little more ink blended Highland Heather, it worked better without it. I finished it at the bottom with one of the sweet borders from the Delicate Forest Dies cropped from Old Olive card stock and I added a little Granny Apple Green for shading. These dies come as a bundle with a stamp set, but easily standalone. I finished with a little bird from the Adhesive-Backed Dragonflies & Birds embellishments.
