It's a New Catty!!! - CTC181

Exciting times for the CASEing the Catty Crew, a whole new Annual Catalogue to take inspiration from! This week it's free rein, CASE (Copy & Selectively Edit) from anywhere in the new catty! Make sure you have pen & paper at hand as the crew are going to grow those wish lists for you!

I had to pull out the new stamp set, Animal Outing, that I received at OnStage (Stampin' Up's biannual conference). IT IS SO CUTE and it has a kangaroo!! I set about stamping the animal images with Memento Black Ink and then coloured them with Stampin' Blends, Stampin' Up's alcohol markers. These alcohol markers are awesome, I've used other brands before (i.e C#P*C) and our alcohol markers are comparable in quality but better than the others as ours have better shaped nibs. One end is a brush nib (same as) but the other end has a much more practical bullet nib. Due to their popularity they were out of stock for a moment but are back in stock now AND come mid June, a whole heap of new colours will be added to the collection.

Once, I had my images coloured it was time to find a project to CASE that I could incorporate my coloured images. Flicking through the catalogue, I happened across page 136 and thought perfect as I could also incorporate another free stamp set that I got at OnStage, Swirly Frames AND the new In Colour 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (DSP). Winner, winner.......

First up, my favourite! I love the new Poppy Parade Cardstock combined with the Blueberry Bushel DSP. It really pops!

The Swirly Frames Stamp Set coordinates with the Layering Circles & Layering Squares Framelit Dies so cutting out is a cinch.

Next up the super cute kangaroo.....

New colours Balmy Blue and Grapefruit Grove combine for another dynamic colour combo.

Last, but not least, the giraffe and his froggy friend!

Highland Heather & Pineapple Punch, new colours, also feature in this one, very punchy indeed!

The insides of the cards all use off cuts of the DSP to decorate.....

Something I should also let you know is that Animal Outing also comes with coordinating framelits, Animal Friends, no fussy cutting needed 😉.

Enough from me, it's time for you to keep on hopping, next stop is Simone Bartrum, who has a stunner of a card to show you. Just click the graphic below.....

We would love it if you played along with our challenge, more details can be found by click in the graphic below.....
