CASEing the Catty – Blog Hop – CTC86 – Everyday Occasions

Hi All

Hello and welcome to this week’s CASEing the Catty Blog Hop.CASEing the Catty Blog Hop 77 - Occassions Catty pages 38-49

Whether you’re joining the Hop here, or if you’ve hopped on over from Rachel or back from Judy a BIG hello!

Remember to click on through this week’s CTC crew to see plenty of inspirational projects that the crew have created for you – there’s a full list on the CTC blog page if you get lost along the way.

This week we have some new Crew Members joining us – welcome to the CTC Crew Kelly, Krissy and Deb!

And a huge thanks to all who participated in the CTC challenges over June. We look forward to having some of you as guest designers in future Blog Hops.

This week the Crew is taking inspiration from pages 66 – 91 of the Stampin’ Up! 2016 Annual Catalogue. This is a huge section which contains heaps of amazing product suites along with a load of inspiration. In fact it is so big – we’ll be CASEing this section again soon!

I couldn’t get past the first page of the section! I’ve CASE’d the card on the top right of page 66.


I’ve fallen in love with the Moroccan Product Suite – especially the Designer Series Paper.

I had a soft spot for it as soon as I saw it as the design matches the design used on all the Discover the Mediterranean Incentive Trip info!


And does that graphic remind you of anything? Well for me it instantly reminded me of some of the gorgeous stained glass windows we saw on our European trip.

The colours of the DSP work so well together – Cajun Craze, Dapper Denim, Delightful Dijon, Early Espresso, Emerald Envy and very VAnilla – definitely my sort of colour mix!

The Delightful Dijon doily from the  2015-2017 In Color doilies and the Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon are perfect matches. To get the thickness of twine that I wanted, I unravelled a piece of the Very Vanilla Thick Baker’s Twine and only used a few threads.

The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set. With 53 photopolymer stamps for only $44 that’s less than a dollar each. Get the bundle which includes a coordinating punch and it is even better value!

  1. Love your card!! It certainly does look like a stained glass window.

  2. Love, love, love your card Jackie! Clever use of that gorgeous DSP!!!

  3. I love your tip about unravelling the thick bakers twine – it looks fantastic. And I see what you mean about these papers – I really hadn’t looked at them too much, but now you’ve shared this gorgeous card – I may have to rethink my wishlist!!! Thank you for the inspiration!!
