CTC #194 - All Is Bright

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, where we take a look at one of the sections of a current Stampin' Up! catalogue and use the projects within it to inspire our own creations.

This week we are taking inspiration from the All Is Bright section of the new Holiday Catalogue ... that's right we have a brand new holiday catalogue that goes live on 5 September and boy is it full of some amazing projects!

I was inspired by the tag in the above image from page 8 of the Holiday Catalogue, and used it as the basis of a card for this challenge.

There are some simply stunning products in this new catalogue and I decided to show off just a few of my favourites in my card this week.  One that is close to the top of the list is the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (whew that is a mouthful).  I used it to create the Bermuda Bay panel, using the folder to emboss the cardstock before lightly sponging areas with Versamark ink then sprinkling on Copper Embossing Powder. The photograph never shows things up as good as they look in person, but this gives a tarnished copper look to the panel which I absolutely love.

In this close up you can see the gorgeous Speciality DSP I have used from the Joyous Noel suite, one side of each piece has copper foil accents which give this paper such a rich feel. I love how the pattern on this one mirrors the deer stamp from  Dashing Deer which I stamped and die cut out as the feature on this card.  The little leaves are cut with another set of Framelits, Detailed Poinsettia, I think the holly leaves are particularly lovely so cut them from Copper Foil.  

Finishing off the card is a little tag cut using the Christmas Tags Thinlits which is a cool single Framelit that cuts out 16 tags at once! It has a coordinating stamp to match all the tag shapes, but for this card I used a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings. 

This is just a little taste of the amazing products in this catalogue to help us all get in the Christmas spirit.  If you don't already have a demonstrator and would like a catalogue please let me know in the comments and I will send one out to you.

I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week, just use the samples in the All Is Bright section of the catalogue to inspire your creativity, then post a picture of your project to the CTC Facebook page.

Time to hop on over and see what Peta has created this week.

Happy Stamping
