CTC Blog Hop – 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue – Sneak Peek

Hello There

Welcome to this week’s CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop!

Welcome from Tricia’s blog – isn’t her birthday card so cute. I am pleased the stamp set has made its way to the South Pacific Market.

CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything. 
The CASE-ing the Catty (CTC) Blog Hop is all about using the amazing Stampin’ Up! Catalogues to help you create.  The catalogues are a great source of inspiration and the many projects and pictures give an excellent springboard for crafters to create. The CTC crew get to share projects we have created that were inspired from the catalogue.  
This week the Blog Hop challenge is to CASE something from the about-to-be-released 2015-2016 Annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue using Sneak Peek Products.
One of the huge advantages of being a demonstrator is that we have access to all new catalogues for about a month before they are released – how cool is that! Another bonus is that we get to order some of the new products before they are available to the public – from what is called the Sneak Peek List. It is so exciting getting product early, and having the fun of creating cards and projects before the products are widely available.
I can’t show you the project that I’ve CASE’d until after the catalogue goes live on Tuesday 2nd – only 4 sleeps!
Added 3 June: Here is the Birthday card from page 11 in the Catalogue
I mean … how could I go past a cake stamp set!
The set is a new one called Build a Birthday and co-ordinates with a new washi tape and designer series paper stack called Cherry on Top. You can create bright and colourful birthday cakes using all three products together or using any combination.  The cake layers are individual stamps and they can also make candles – very cute.
And here’s my card:

I decided to change it up though, and make a white and gold wedding cake card. (Sorry about the photos – I’ve had a few technical difficulties.)
  • The cake stand and one of the layers were stamped with versamark on a black card base, then heat embossed in white embossing powder.
  • The other two cake layers were embossed with gold embossing powder.
  • A piece of 3.2mm Gold ribbon was added at the bottom of each layer – just like you might find on a cake.
  • The window in the Whisper White layer was cut using the Circles Collection Framelits and was popped up on dimensionals.
  • The sentiment comes from the returning News Stamp Set. Only one line of a two-line stamp has been used, and is heat embossed in gold.
  • The embellishment is a bow made using the same gold ribbon as on the cake.
  • The cut out circle was added to the inside of the card for a place to write the greeting on.

You can see some of the gold “bling” in this close-up.

If you’re wondering – my card is sitting on another Sneak Peek – the new Designer Series Paper stacks available in each of Stampin’ Up!’s colour families. Love the script on this design – the words are rather uplifting!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card – I’m having a great time creating with some of the new goodies from the catty – can’t wait to order some others. My wish list is rather long!
