CASEing the Catty CTC476 – Card Sketch

Welcome to the CASEing the Catty Challenge CTC476. Today our team are CASEing one of the sketches from Page 68 of the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and ironically it’s from the ‘Sketched’ Butterflies bundle.

I love sketches and they are my go-to as I start a project. There’s so many ways to interpret it and I’m looking forward to seeing what our team creates using this sketch.

I used the partial die cutting technique to replicate this sketch. I stamped and die cut the image from the Enduring Beauty stamp set. Placing only the section of the image that I wanted to cut out in the sandwich of the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, the other half of the image remains in tact.

Under this I layered a piece of Summer Splash Cardstock which gave a nice shadow effect for the sketch.

Instead of a banner I stamped the sentiment from the Everyday Greetings stamp set, directly onto the Cardstock. This stamp set will be available as part of our new Online Exclusives release on the 5thof July. With loads of sentiments in beautiful fonts, this is one you will want to add to your collection.

On the base, I added some Summer Splash Designer Series Paper from our 2024-2026 In-Color paper pack. On top of this, a piece of White Cardstock embossed with the Cute Crochet embossing folder adds subtle texture.

To complete the card I added some Opal Rounds coloured with the Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend and my favourite – Linen Thread.

Kylie’s International Blog Highlight – Tropical Thank You

Hi friends.

Lovely to have you visit me today. I’ve got a tropical themed Thank you card that I am going to share with you. It seems very apt to be making Thank you cards at this time. So many people who are serving, helping, assisting and being kind in an environment where we need it so much at the moment. It’s great to be able to participate in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight this month and you can view the gallery for more gratitude inspired projects.

Tropical Oasis handmade card with ukelele

I used the Tropical Oasis Memories & More card pack with the Partial Die Cutting technique to create the centrepiece with the ukelele. 

Partial Die Cutting

This involves fussy cutting around the leaves, ukelele (anything other than the circle). Then place the circle die over the image, lifting the fussy cut parts above the die so it doesn’t get cut in the process. Run this through the die cutting machine. I had to run it through twice because of the position of this image. This resulted in a nice circle instead of having to fussy cut around that.  Each image will vary. You can try this with various shapes and have a bit of fun.

The sentiment was stamped in the new Saddle Brown Stazon ink. This is such a warm colour which complements the Tropical Oasis suite. I couldn’t resist adding a quaver from the Music from the Heart stamp set to coordinate with the ukelele for a musical theme.
