Catty Cruise

0925lighthouse_200


Ahoy Maties!!! Welcome to the second voyage of the Catty Cruise. This time with are setting sail through the new Holiday Mini Catalog!

If you just sailed here from Kay Kalthoff port of call Stamping to Share wasn't her projects with the Serene Snowflake amazing?!!!! I just love all she does!

We’ve have 11 incredible stamp artist for this cruise through the new Stampin' Up Holiday Mini catalog. You’ll get to the next port by clicking on the port hole at the end of this post. But, if we somehow lose you along the way, you can always rejoin us by visiting our home port, Catty Cruise Line.


When I first saw the new Holiday mini I was immediately drawn to the Pumpkin Patch Set. I LOVE Halloween, all the cute stuff, not the blood and gore stuff, This little set is adorable and fits the "Cute Stuff" perfectly!

Halloween, to me, is all about the little ones and all the fun they have and of course, the CANDY!!! So I had to make some Halloween treat holders and a card or two!!





The pumpkins in this set are so fun to use and you can mix and match the faces and pumpkins! My box is made with basic black and the Speciality DS paper, Night and Day, also in the mini. The pumpkins are stamped on scrap white and cut out and added with dimensionals. The card is old olive and uses the Cast-A-Spell DS paper. The sentiment is from the Pumpkin Patch Set and I just inked up part of it to use on this card.

This next set is :



just as fun as the first! I made the box pumpkin pie cardstock and added some DS paper to the sides and used a MS punch for the fence. The card is made with pumpkin pie and old olive and more Cast-A-Spell DS paper. I used a needle and embroidery floss to make the "X's" behind the main image panel. I added old olive ribbon and some black brads.

And Lastly:

I used the Pumpkin Patch Set and the Wandering Words Set for this simple little card.



I stamped five of the pumpkin ovals onto scrap white and cut them out, and layered to make the large pumpkin. I stamped the stem and cut it out and added it to the pumpkin. I used a spectrum pad to ink up the words. I layered it onto chocolate chip and then mounted to the card. It is 6-1/2 inch by 3-1/4 inch, and will fit into the small open end envelopes. I added some chocolate chip twill ribbon and some piercing along the bottom.

As much as I’d love to keep you at It's A Stamp Thing, it’s time to weigh anchor again and embark on to the next port, the fabulously talented Angie Tieman at Schwooo! She is going to show you some projects with the "Just Beclause" Stamp Set.
