CTC187 – Blended Season – it’s Christmas with no kids in sight!

CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop
Hello and welcome to CASEing the Catty – Sunday Blog Hop.
Whether you’re joining the Hop here at CreativeJax with Jackie Noble, or if you’ve hopped on over the ditch from the amazing Fi Cobbin (aka The Magenta Tiger) – a big WELCOME! 
This week the CTC Crew is CASE-ing projects from the Kids and Babies section of the Catalogue (pages 80-91).
I love the cute elephant card on page 91. 
One of the things I love to do with the images of projects in the catalogue is to make cards for a completely different purpose. So this week – I’ve given this Thank You Card a Christmas Make-over!
I have used the about-to-be-released limited-time bundle – Blended Seasons. You can see all the information in the image below. The Blended Seasons stamp set certainly has several different themes and is a very versatile set.
This set is currently available for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators to purchase until the end of the month. It will be available for everyone for the month of August – but only while supplies last! If you can’t wait till August – you can include this set in your Starter Kit when you join Stampin’ Up! There’s more info at the bottom of the post about joining – and about the 10 FREE ink pads you will receive if you join during July! It really is a fabulous deal!
Back to the card – I’ve stamped the holly image in VersaMark onto the Poppy Parade cardbase as a background. I’ve also stamped this image on Whisper White in Black – Momento Tuxedo Black so that I could colour them with two new Blend colours – Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green.  The extra leaf and berry image was coloured the same way onto a scrap piece of paper then fussy cut out. It is popped up on a dimensional. The sentiment is stamped in Granny Apple Green.
I’ve also put a little of the Fine Tip Glue onto the berries to make them shiny. The other berries have pearls on top. 
And can you see that stitching around the cutout shape? The framelits in the Stitched Seasons have stitching – not only around the cut out piece – but also around the opening left behind. Love love love!
