CASE the Catty Day 2 and Merry Mondays!

Welcome to Day 2 of my CASE the catty week!  Before I get to today’s card, I decided that, for at least the next couple of months, I will share Christmas cards only on Mondays.  Now that I got my first order of Holiday Catalog goodies, all I want to make is Christmas cards, but I also want to pace myself and not go overboard, as it’s still summer!  LOL!  So posting them only on Mondays will help keep that in check (hopefully)!  🙂

My card today is based on a sample on page 100 of the catalog:

Believe it or not, my card is based on the bottom card in this picture.  When I first started making it, I had a very different idea in my head of what I wanted the final card to look like.  As I continued to create it and made changes as I went along, it began to look less and less like the original sample!  Other than the plaid backgrounds, there’s not too much left in common between these cards, though I’m still very pleased with how my final card came out!

Most of the products used on this card are from the new Holiday Catalog!  The plaid background paper is from a new DSP called the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.  The “Christmas” die cut and “Wishes” stamp are from a gorgeous new bundle called the Merry Christmas to All Bundle.  I also used a new trim called the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim.  Other products include the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Twinkle Builder Punch, which I used to cut out the stars!

 

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Mossy Meadow card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Cherry Cobbler middle layer:  4 x 5-1/4 inches

Plaid DSP layer:  3-3/4 x 5 inches

Very Vanilla stitched oval:  3-5/16 x 2-3/8 inches

Christmas die cut:  4-5/8 x 1-1/4 inches

Cherry Cobbler stars:  approximately 1/4 inch

 

 

All of the Holiday Catalog products shown on this project will be available beginning September 5th!  I have the new catalogs in hand and will be shipping them out to my customers by the end of this week.  If you would like a copy, and do not already have a demonstrator, please send me your name and address and I will put you on my list!

Thanks for stopping by!  Please check back tomorrow for Day 3’s project!

It’s HERE!!!

It’s finally here!  The new Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog goes live for ordering TODAY!  Just a couple of things you need to know:

Ordering will not be open until NOON Mountain Time (that’s 2:00 pm for us East Coast folks!)  This is so that Stampin’ Up! can have time to switch over the ordering system from the old catalog to the new one.

Once ordering IS open, ANYTHING from the new catalog may be ordered EXCEPT any Stampin’ Blends Markers in NEW colors only, and the Big Day Planner Kit and Refill.  All of the previously released Stampin’ Blends colors will be available again beginning June 1st.  However, there are a bunch of new colors shown in the new catalog that will not be available in the Stampin’ Blends until sometime mid-June.  Stampin’ Up! is working to get these new colors into your hands ASAP, so please check back for updates, and as soon as I know anything, I will let you know!

You can now view a PDF of the new catalog right on your computer!  Click HERE to view/download, or click the image of the catalog on the righthand side of my blog!

Otherwise, happy shopping! Let me know if you have any questions or need anything!
