Welcome to the Magenta Tiger!

Welcome to the first CASEing the Catty for 2018! We are CASEing from the AMAZING new 2018 Stampin’ Up!® Occasions Catalogue (pages 4 though 9)

 I’ve CASED the Colour Combination on page 9. The colours in the card I’ve CASED are Rich Razzleberry, Flirty Flamingo and Peek-a-book Peach, Crumb Cake and Whisper White.

I’ve substituted Calypso Coral for Flirty Flamingo and Pumpkin Pie for Peek-a-boo Peach.

Here is my card:

I’ve Stamped four of the Hanging Baskets in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Thick Whisper White Card Stock (because I’m using blends!) as well as many gorgeous little butterflies. 

I’ve used Stampin’ Blends to colour the hanging baskets and butterflies from the Hanging Garden Stamp Set on page 30 of the New Occasions Catalogue.

The sentiment ‘SENDING LOTS OF LOVE’ also from the Hanging Garden Stamp Set was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and popped up on Glue Dots: a little dimension.

CASE-ing the Catty 156 – Case ANY project from the Annual Catalogue with a Christmas Twist!

Hello from the Magenta Tiger,

Welcome to another CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, tonight we are CASEing a project from the Annual Catalogue and giving it a Christmas Twist. 

This week I created a non Traditional Christmas Card using Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party. I’ve taken inspiration from the Layout and Technique used on page 24 of the Annual Catalogue (card on the Right).

Here is my Card:

I started with a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock because it is great for projects that involve ink and water. The ornaments are from the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set and the ‘Joy to the World’ sentiment is from the Hearts Come Home Stamp set. I’ve heat embossed these using Versamark, White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the heat tool.  

I covered the cardstock with water using a Stampin’ Spritzer, then I’ve added several drops of Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party ink. I moved the cardstock around to allow the ink to cover it fully.

To finish off my card, I’ve wound some Copper Metallic Thread around the top of the card and also created a bow. I used the Ruffled 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder top add that last touch!

I hope you’ll continue to enjoy the Blog Hop. Next up is Elizabeth Gross.
