Hello and welcome to CASEing the Catty – Sunday Blog Hop!
Welcome to the Sunday CASEing the Catty Blog Hop where we CASE a particular section of the catalogue, and as always, everyone is encouraged to join in the Challenge at CASEing the Catty Blog Hop and Sunday Challenge Facebook Group.
We love taking inspiration from the great projects in the catalogues and are sure you will too! So if you haven’t already joined the group don’t forget to pop in and ask to join us HERE
Once you’ve had a look through this week’s Blog Hop to see plenty of inspirational projects that the crew have created for you – get your crafty mojo out and join the challenge – just check out all the amazing creations from the other group members.
Last week we had people 27 people join the challenge – thanks so much for sharing your creations! We’ve loved seeing what you CASE’d. This week’s “People’s Choice” and “Crew’s Choice” were revealed in the Group page an hour ago. Check them out!
This week the crew is taking inspiration from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.
If you are not familiar with Sale-A-Bration (SAB) – let me just say it the most amazing part of the Stampin’ Up! year! You earn FREE exclusive SAB items – one (1) for every $NZ110 of product that you order. There are 12 different items you can choose from – stamps or designer series paper or a card kit or a storage tin! You can see them all in a pdf HERE.
Like many – I just couldn’t resist the gorgeous Hey Chick stamp set found on page 17 of the SAB brochure. It was one of my first choices!
I’ve CASE’d the card at the top right of page 16.
That wild-haired chick is my favourite!
As soon as I saw it I knew exactly who “he” was going to be – Hei Hei – the rooster in the recently released Disney movie – “Moana”!
Although the Hey Chick bird doesn’t quite have the rooster comb – I think “he” is perfect to cast in the role of Hei Hei in the cardmaking world!
Note: In parts of Europe the movie has been released under the name of “Oceania” or as “Vaiana” as “Moana” was either trademarked – or was the name of a porn star! I don’t want to imagine the images those Disney fans would have found googling that!
If you haven’t seen the movie yet – do go! It’s a fabulous movie in true Disney musical style – though this Disney “Princess” is a chief’s daughter from the South Pacific! Very relevant to us Down-Under – and several New Zealanders were involved or “star” in the movie. Further in the post you can click on Hei Hei to watch the movie trailer.
Here’s a collage of my Hei Hei card along with a couple of movie images. Can you see the similarity!
I chose this Designer Series Paper from the Blooms & Bliss DSP pack as it reminded me of tropical flowers. Not quite as bright as the amazing scenery in the movie though!
The card base is Island Indigo (what an appropriate name) with a Daffodil Delight banner. The “You’re the Best” sentiment is from the masculine stamp set – “Urban District”. I think this is a fabulous set and love, love, love this sentiment!
Like the original card I’ve embossed the “hey, chick” sentiment in White on Basic Black and I’ve layered the image up onto circular diecuts (scalloped and smooth) cut with the Layering Circles Framelits.
It’s always important to use your Embossing Buddy when you are embossing – but this is even more important when heat embossing on black card (or any dark colour). Helps avoid extra speckles of embossing.
Here’s a close-up of Hei Hei – googly eyes and all!
I’ve used my Stampin’ Markers to colour Hei Hei – Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Emerald Envy and Island Indigo. I’ve outlined him very lightly in Pool Party. If you don’t have any Stampin’ Write Markers – you may want to consider joining a Markers Club. If you are in New Zealand you can join my Many Marvelous Markers Club – see more details HERE
… and here’s the inside of my card – with Hei Hei popping in again!
And just because I think Hei Hei is the coolest dude – here’s another pic of him!
If you click on this picture of Hei Hei you can watch the movie trailer! (Hei Hei may just make an appearance!)
So … one card just isn’t quite enough is it? Okay … here’s another!
Same colours – but this is a 10 x 10cm card.
I’ve used the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing folder as a stamp to get the chicken wire background, and as an embossing folder on the Daffodil Delight cardstock to get the texture. A little silver metallic thread to link in with the chicken wire, that cute sentiment and we’re done!
Rather than layering Hei Hei on multiple diecuts- in this card I’ve used the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I am sooooo pleased these are going to be available to order again soon – hopefully tomorrow! I’ll come back and add a link as soon as they are order-able!
Can you see my favourite rooster inside again?
I do hope you’ve enjoyed my project this week! I had such fun creating with the Hey Chick stamp set. I know many others are too as these chicks are all over Pinterest!
You could choose this stamp set (or another SAB stamp set) as your FREE Sale-A-Bration item if you pre-order my inaugural Classes-to-Go class: CTG01 – Beautiful You! Check out the detail HERE
