CTC#94 Candy Cane Lane - the new Catalogue is HERE

Welcome to the CASEing the Catty Sunday night bloghop where we use a section of the Catalogue to inspire this weeks projects. Designers can take a layout, a colour combination, or any element as the starting point to create something new. We invite you to tour around the hop and to join in -after all the Catalogue has so many beautiful samples to inspire us all. If you get lost you'll find the full crew here

You may have arrived from Jackie's blog, or you may be starting here. So WELCOME.

This week is very exciting for the Stampin' Up! community as the new Christmas Catalogue is here! Everyone loves new stuff and new ideas! We hope you find something to amaze you here and get you started preparing for Christmas- it's never too early!

The first suite in the catalogue is called Cany Cane Lane and includes paper and stamps. The great set of two markers is really handy, and the matching punch is fabulous for the Santa, teddy , reindeer and other figures.  The Cookie Cutter Christmas  and punhc can be bundled saving 10%. Gotta love that. 

Already there are loads of samples on Pinterest showing how versatile this set is. I am studying at present and my crafting time has been really affected (sad face) so I needed a project that was super quick this week. 

So I grabbed the pens and coloured the reindeer, punched him out and coloured him with an aquapainter to get the soft look. I used the Early Espresso marker to colour his eyes, and when he was completely dry I coloured him with Wink of Stella to add some depth. I used  the ready made notecards and envelopes which save so much time, and I tied the tag on with some of the new sparkly baker's twine. The DSP has both bright images and softer pages too which is very versatile.

I also wanted to show you the great new food safe boxes which are white, can be stamped on, and come with a clear acetate sleeve to cover. So simple and quick. They are 3" cubed so quite a decent size for some baking or a small gift. You can find links to each of these products in my online store just by clicking on any image below. 

So if your crafting time is very limited leading up to christmas this set could be really helpful for you too.

Next on the hop is my lovely friend Krissy. I wonder what gorgeous time she has created this week

Don't forget we love to see what you create too, and we hold a monthly challenge where you can share with us too.

Merriest Moments #simplestamping Project 2 and 3 Easy cards

  This weekend I held my Christmas Card Class and catalogue launch showcasing the new Christmas Catalogue. It was a great day and we did 6 projects using the  Merriest Moments Stampset .  I created several projects designed to show that the set is brilliant on it's own.  Since not everyone owns a die cutting machine it is good to look at ways to utilise the stamps. There are lots of gorgeous samples around which focus on the Hybrid dies and embossing folder - and don't get me wrong they are an amazing product to use - but I have a few cards which just use the stamps, this is the second and third. This card uses the Holly Leaf - either medium or large- and random stamping across the card. The berries just tuck in perfectly and are easy to line up. In between the Holly I stamped the leaf frond with the rounded leaves using Sahara Sand, (anyone know what this is called?) and then filled in the spaces with the little "dottage" stamp using versamark and Heat Embossing with

Envelope Dies perfect for an Acetate Tent card and some new DSP

After creating yesterday's cards I was on a roll and created this one using the beautiful Gilded Autumn DSP and the Fancy Phrases stamp set.  I really love the sentiments in this set.  It is such a simple design and easy to create. You can find all the directions on yesterday's post for Just Add Ink (JAI#518)  I watercoloured the white leaf after I had adhered the gold veins just to soften it, and I added a strip of mint DSP to the front of one of the tent stands as the white was a bit stark. That's the cool thing about this design, you can change it up plenty of ways. I'm sure we can all send these type of cards at the moment. I hope you are safe and well, and staying connected, wherever you are. I hope you have a creative week and remember,  "don't just post online,  post something pretty!" cheers, Liz Product List Ornamental Envelopes Bundle [ 155168 ] $83.50 Envelopes  Dies [ 153531 ] $63.00 Shimmery White A4 Car

Triangle gift Box instructions for CTC#89 Christmas Packaging

Hello, I ran out of time to record the instructions for my project at CASEing the Catty#89 (busy week with markets etc)  so as promised here is the original inspiration and my version. I hope you give it a try. So I searched my Pinterest boards and finally found the link again here . It is a  picture tutorial in  German.  No matter which way I fold mine it doesn't look like Annika's - My flat faces are isosceles triangles, whereas hers appear to be right-angle triangles (I had to go back to basic maths to explain this to myself -you gotta love google!) At any rate, once folded and tied it looks quite pretty and I will use it as is.  so here are my instructions- very similar to Annika's: cut a piece of A4 Cardstock  in a 15 cm strip (use the full length of the A4) score parallel to the long edge at 4.5 cm rotate 90* and score at  7cm, 14cm, 21cm, 28 cm these vertical scores will be VALLEY folds make a mark at the top edge of the page at
