CASEing the Catty – Inlay Technique using Love of Leaves bundle

CASEing the Catty – Inlay Technique using Love of Leaves bundle

This week’s CASEing the Catty #CTC382 challenge is to case your favourite bundle from the 2020 August – December Mini Catalogue.

I have so many favourites in this catalogue but in the end I decided to use a bundle I hadn’t played with yet: the Love of Leaves bundle.

This is the card design I decided to CASE – it’s on page 74 of the 2020 August – December Mini Catalogue.

My card is the same basic layout but I’ve used the die inlay technique to insert the die cut shapes into the card front instead of layering them on top.

I cut my leaves out of the beautiful brushed metallic cardstock instead of the coloured and stamped leavers in the sample I CASED.

This angle better shows the soft sheen of this card stock.

I’ve used all three colours of brushed metallic cardstock: bronze, copper and gold.

The sentiments and fonts in the Love of Leaves stamp set are incredible. I’ve white heat embossed the little Thank You for my card today.

CASEing the Catty – Shaded Spruce and Silver Christmas Card

CASEing the Catty – Shaded Spruce and Silver Christmas Card

I’ve been following the beautiful creations of the CASEing the Catty team for a while and I decided to finally join in this week for the CTC380 challenge, which is CASEing the cover of the August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue.

There are so many beautiful cards on this cover but in the end I decided to CASE the “Seasons Greetings” card which is on the top left of the cover. I just love that little deer standing proud in amongst the trees.

I don’t have the “In the Pines” bundle yet so I used the Winter Woods and the Rooted in Nature stamp sets (with their matching dies) and the snow globe dies instead.

Slimline cards are all the rage ATM which is why I made my scene horizontal rather than the original vertical. I also switched out the gold for silver, which I personally prefer with Shaded Spruce.

These gorgeous new ribbons are both from the the August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue. The Shaded Spruce Argyle Satin ribbon comes in the “Wonder of the Season” Ribbon Combo pack and I’ve layered it on top of the Silver Metallic Mesh Ribbon.

My deer is die cut from silver foil using the Snow Globe Scenes dies.

And the “Season’s Greetings” sentiment is from the coordinating Still Scenes stamp set.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase: Week 10 Cinnamon Cider

Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase: Week 10 Cinnamon Cider

Welcome to week ten of our 2020-2021 Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase.

Each week various members of our Art With Heart Colour Creations team will be bringing you weekly colour inspiration as we showcase our range of over 50 beautiful Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 10 – Cinnamon Cider

Cinnamon Cider is a 2020-22 In Color and one of the exciting new products available in this colour is a velveteen paper. You’ll find the velveteen paper pack is on page 153 of the 2020 Annual Catalogue and this soft flocked paper comes in Cinnamon Cider, Highland Heather and Soft Sea Foam.

I thought this soft velvety paper would be ideal for bringing the rabbit from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set to life, so my cards this week feature this darling little rabbit.

How adorable is does he look stamped with Memento Ink onto the Cinnamon Cider velveteen paper? I die cut the image using a circle die and mounted it onto a scalloped circle of Basic Black die cut using the larger scalloped circle die from the layering circle dies.

It’s really hard to show the soft texture of this velveteen paper and the effect of the subtle embossing on the Whisper White card stock but this close up gives you a clearer view. I just can’t stop stroking this tiny little Cinnamon Cider bunny. His fluffy white tail was coloured with the Chalk Marker.

For card two my bunny rabbit has moved to the woods. I’ve stamped him onto Whisper White card stock, coloured him in with my Cinnamon Cider blends and created a landscape using my Basic Black marker to extend the lines in the stamps.

The background Woodland embossing folder really pairs well with the Nature’s Beauty stamps.

Card three continues the woodland theme, this time with a background stamped using the tree trunk stamp from the Winter Wood stamp set. I stamped my tree trunk stamp in Cinnamon Cider ink onto Cinnamon Cider card stock before using my Chalk Marker to add White.

I love how the Wrapped in Texture embossing folder echos the snow I added to the trees. You get two embossing folders in this pack and you’ll find them on page 9 of the August-December 2020 Mini Catalogue.

The white dot on top of my linen thread bow is another new product from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalogue – the All the Trimmings Embellishments on page 25.

All three cards have the same sentiment “Thinking of You” which I created using the marker technique.

The sentiment in the Winter Woods set actually says “Thinking of You This Season” but by using my Cinnamon Cider marker to just colour in the “thinking of you” section of the stamp I was able to create a more versatile and year round sentiment for my cards.

I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Art With Heart team have created with Cinnamon Cider today. Click on the links below to see what they’ve made.

Next Tuesday we’ll be showcasing one of the Brights: Coastal Cabana. We hope you can join us all then.
