CASEing the Catty – CTC118 – Swaps are Special

 
Hello and welcome to CASEing the Catty – Sunday Blog Hop for CTC118!
CASEing the Catty Blog - CTC116
Whether you’re joining the Hop here at CreativeJax with Jackie Noble, or if you’ve hopped on over from Rachel at Stampin’ Pals a BIG hello! Didn’t Rachel’s project look good enough to eat?

This week the CASEing the Catty Blog Hop and Challenge is taking inspiration from pages 32-45 of the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalogue. 

This large section features the gorgeous Cool Treats Suite of products which look good enough to lick right off the page! I’m know you’re going to enjoy this weeks creations by the Crew.

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 at  CASEing the Catty Blog Hop and Sunday Challenge Facebook Group. if you haven’t already joined the group you – just ask and your wish will be granted! 

You don’t need to have a blog to join in – just post your picture to the Facebook Group in the Album for this week’s challenge (CTC 116 – Succulents). If you do have a blog – feel free to add the link! And of course, the challenge is open to all Stampin’ Up! enthusiasts – not just demos!

And you don’t have to have the same stamps, papers or colours that are in this section as you are taking inspiration from something – not recreating it.

As well as the stunning Cool Treat products, there are also numerous other fantastic stamps this section and I’ve chosen one of the other bundles to use for my CASE this week – The Special Reason Bundle

I had my monthly thINK Creative team Meeting last week and we always do swaps – so I again decided to combine a CTC challenge with my swaps. Those that know me, now I love negative space, so I love the way the flowers from Special Reason can make both detailed positive cutouts and negative cutouts!

I’ve used the layout from the card and changed the colours. Loving the elegance of the Night of Navy and Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper.

This closeup shows some more detail.

The thread is deconstructed Tip Top Taupe Mini Striped Ribbon. I cut the ribbon in half lengthwise, then pulled some threads from the cut edge. These threads have a “crinkle-cut” look and add an interesting texture around the card.

Here’s a peek of the inside of the card.

And of course as these were swaps – there were several of them!

Feel free to leave me a comment in the section below – I love hearing from you! If you live in New Zealand and would like to purchase any of the products I’ve mentioned – I would welcome you as a customer.

As I mentioned at the beginning of my Post – CASEing the Catty has a weekly Challenge hosted in our CASEing the Catty Blog Hop and Sunday Challenge Facebook Group.
