I have some very exciting news to share with you all! I have been invited to join the team over at CASEing the Catty! Its a weekly blog hop, where every Sunday Night the team CASE different sections of the catty to inspire your creativity! It’s loads of fun….and you can play along too!
This week is all about CASEing the Party Animal Section from pages 4-7 of the New Occasions Catalogue! (Have you seen it yet? It’s spectacular!)
I absolutely love the Cake Crazy Stamp Set on Page 7 and I needed a female birthday card, so I took inspiration from the card on the left. I love the way it stacks!
My order hasn’t arrived yet with this lovely set, so I improvised using the new Birthday Bright Set available in the Occasions Catalogue on Page 13, to create my very own cake stack card. Its quite easy to do with the photopolymer stamps – but if you are not confident you can always use the stamp-a-ma-jig!
I did add a little bit of sparkle by using the Gold embossing powder instead of the white and I was pleasantly surprised at how well this stamp set ‘stacks’!
And seeing as I have been taking a break and was keen to get creative again, I decided to make another card using the same set, but this time I used the base of the centre card below for inspiration.
I thought the little banner pieces in the set would be prefect to create a focal point on my card. I simply lined them all up on a single block and stamped away before applying my white embossing powder!
And let me tell you – that white ribbon in the new Occasions Catty is fast becoming a favourite of mine! It’s the perfect size for card makers!
I hope this has given you some inspiration for creating! You can now hop over to Jackie’s blog to see what she has created for you all!
Don’t forget you can play along too by using the link tool below or by joining our BRAND NEW Facebook group – CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge – where you can play along by adding your photo to the related challenge album.
I’m really looking forward to being a member of the Caseing the Catty to help inspire you all!

Welcome to the team. It’s great to have you join in the fun. Your cards are awesome and they are a fabulous case from the catalogue. I love the stacking on the melon mambo card. It looks great.

Welcome, Mel. It’s lovely to have you on the CTC Crew. Love your cards; the first one especially (I’m a pink person!). Love the bow treatment and the gold embossed stack.
Thanks Judy. Im very excited to be part of the crew! I LOVE those little bows!
Two great cards Mel. You must like heat embossing, not surprising as it gives such a dramatic look to your cards.
Thanks Rachel. I do love the look you achieve with heat embossing xx

Great cards ! I especially like the pink as I have a bit of a thing for pink !
Way to go Mel, 2 great CASES! You have made stacking look easy. I cant stamp straight so I can never achieve this lovely look! Welcome to the crew, I look forward to seeing more of your lovely projects.
Thanks Tricia. I’m excited to be here xx
Hey Mel. Welcome to the CTC crew. What a debut! Not one but two fantastic cards. That gold one is so striking and I also need to check out that ribbon :). Lol
