CASE-ing the Catty - Sale-a-bration Trusty Toolbox DSP

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

 Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty for this week. We are nearly at the half way point in our second month of Sale-a-bration, so only 2 more weeks to get the FREE products on your Wishlist!

If you've come from visiting Julia, 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 CASE-ing the Sale-a-bration brochure, again. We have a wonderful collection of products that you can choose for free, when you place a qualifying order of $90AUD or more before shipping.  PLUS, more products from the Annual Catalogue have been added to the items you can choose.  See all the Level 1 and Level 2 options in my Online Store and make sure to use the Sale-a-bration item number and not the item number in the Annual Catalogue (a little confusing, I know).

This week I was inspired by the awesome Trusty Toolbox DSP, which you can see much better in the Online Store. In particular the huge number of tools displayed on 2 sheets of the paper. There are some dies to crop the images, but you will need to do some fussy cutting as well.

Stampin' Up! Trusty Tools Bundle & Trusty Toolbox DSP (Sale-a-bration) | Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I decided that the pop up Card In A Box would be the perfect way to make use of a bunch of the tools.  It makes a great masculine card for birthdays, Father's Day or to thank someone doing work for you. I made the card box from Lost Lagoon card stock which is one of the coordinating colours and then added some metal plate using the Metal Plate 3D Embossing Folder and retired Silver Foil.

I have added 2 rails in the box and with the back, there are 3 surfaces you can attach the die cut and fussy cut tools to. I first added the peg board in Poppy Parade to the back and the side flaps and used 1mm foam pads to add the tools to the peg board and then to the rails so they are overlapping and looking like they've been thrown in!  I cropped the spanner from silver foil and added some silver foil accents to the drill and the snips with the dies, overlaying them onto the images cropped from the DSP and trimming where necessary.  The greeting from the Trusty Tools stamp set was stamped in Poppy Parade and cropped with the banner from the Stylish Shapes Dies and added to the top panel.  The 'thanks' from the Biggest Wish stamp set was stamped in black and fussy cut and popped up over the corner of the banner. The pencils were added to the other corner and I finished the banner with 2 black Classic Matte Dots

For the writing panel on the reverse, I have a mat of Poppy Parade and a strip of the metal plate at the bottom with a fussy cut screwdriver and a few nuts and bolts to finish.

The great thing about this card is that it folds up and fits into a standard Medium Envelope for posting.

CASE-ing the Catty - Plaid Tidings DSP

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty challenge! 

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're CASE-ing the colours of the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper from the 2020 August-December Mini Catalogue. This pack of designer paper is ON SALE right now, until 31 October 2020.

CTC290_Plaid_Tidings_DSP

There are a LOT of colours and patterns in this designer paper as you can see in the photo above, so it can be a little overwhelming. It is best to look at each design separately to appreciate the possibilities. I decided on a design and used the coordinating colours  in the paper to create my card, using the Love of Leaves Bundle, which found it's way into my craft room recently! It you haven't noticed it, it's on page 40 of the August-December Mini Catalogue.

Stampin' Up! Love of Leaves Bundle - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

This bundle is perfect for either gender and those with a love of nature and the outdoors. It would be wonderful for scrapbooking your outdoor adventures as well. I don't think the image of the dies in the catalogue does them justice, so I hope my photo gives you a better idea of the detail. Each leaf has 2 dies; the outline which cuts and adds stitching around the cut edge and the centre embossing die for the veins. I have used some sticky note to keep the 2 pieces together, so you can cut and emboss the leaves at the same time. In addition to the leaves, there is the large decorative border die.  If you are happy to die cut the leaves from cardstock or foil (which looks fabulous!), then the dies can really stand alone. You can die cut from coloured cardstock or patterned paper and then add extra depth with sponge daubers. Alternatively, add drops of ink onto wet watercolour paper to get gorgeous variegated leaves or use ink blending tools to create your own paper. 

Stampin' Up! Love of Leaves Bundle - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

I started with a card-sized panel of Pretty Peacock card stock and used the border die from the Stitched Leaves Dies on the left side to add  the decorative stitching.  The design from the Plaid Tidings Designer Paper pack was added to the right end leaving a narrow border. I found the strip of Cajun Craze with the zigzag in my scrap bag and I added that to the left edge. It  was cut with the retired Finishing Touches Edgelits Dies from way back in 2012!  The greeting from the Life is Beautiful stamp set was stamped in Pretty Peacock ink and then dry embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder before being cropped with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

Stampin' Up! Love of Leaves Bundle - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

The plaid design I've chosen lends itself to more autumn colours, so I've stamped the leaves in Pumpkin Pie, Bumblebee, Cajun Craze, Pretty Peacock and Cherry Cobbler and cropped them with the coordinating dies.  Cajun Craze isn't in the list of colours, but works well with the brown tones. The stamps provide a lot of shading by themselves, so make sure your ink pads aren't too juicy or you will lose that definition. If you can see bubbles of ink on the stamp, use the back of teaspoon to temporarily push the ink down in the pad.  I added a little bit of extra shading on the edges of the stamps with a sponge dauber after stamping the main colour. This is easy to do if you're using the Stamparatus, or you can see through the photopolymer to line up for a second stamping. As the paper is already busy, I wanted to keep the stamping simple.  I layered up the leaves on the left of the white panel and finished with a bow using the copper metallic ribbon. I added a trio of banners to balance the focus panel.

For the inside, I have a Pretty Peacock mat for my writing panel and a strip of the plaid designer paper down the left side. I've had a little fun with the leaves here. I die cut the tall leaf out of the writing panel, so you can see the stitching on the cut edge. I created more variegated leaves with multiple layers of colour this time.
