CASE-ing The Catty #92 – Everyday Occasions

CTC sunday Blog hop header

Hello! We’re back to Everyday Occasions this week. It’s such a large chunk of the Annual Catalogue and so full of wonderful project ideas. I tend to leave my catalogue on our coffee table and often pick it up during commercial breaks on tv. The more I look, the more I see, it never gets old! Does anyone else do this or am I just weird?

Where were we? That’s right. I had a special delivery this week… goodies from the Stampin’ up Holiday Catalogue *squeal* which will be available September 1st! Oh I was SO excited when they arrived, I just had to jump in and use them! (You can tell I’m excited, there’s a lot of “!” these going on). Anyway, I’ve used this beautiful card on page 72 as inspiration for my project this week because I had a cool idea using  watercolour and black – I love love love it. Screenshot 2016-08-20 17.36.16Ok, so that’s the Stampin’ Up card, now here is a sneak peak of the new Frosted Medallions stamp set I used …

Frosted Medallions

Wow right!? Are you getting excited yet? You should be! This set is AMAZING!! So much you can do, let me tell you it’s not just for Christmas & New Years. I have made a super cool Birthday card using this very set and some  hand stitching which is so hot right now. Take a look! … insert *drum roll* here haha

Ta daaa! I am so pleased with how this one turned out! I spritzed my watercolour cardstock with some water (not too much), then slapped some melon mambo and bermuda bay on a large clear block, gave that a little water spritz, then stamped onto the cardstock. Once I let that dry a good few hours, I stamped my frosted medallion & sentiment in momento black.

The next step once that was all dry, was to add stitching using SU’s gold metallic thread. To be honest, I did try a few different materials for the thread but I found the bakers twine too fragile. It’s a little fluffy and breaks quite easy. The metallic thread worked wonders though and looks fantastic. Gives the card a wonderful texture and shine too.

You might be interested to know metallic copper also looks sensational with this medallion stamp! I made this little beauty, which is actually a CASE of my first card.
