Tee-Shirt CTC #119

Another Sunday night at CASE-ing The Catty and we've returned to the Sale-a-bration catalogue. You may have arrived from the blog before me, but you can complete the circuit. This week we are focussing on pages 16-19 and I've gone straight to Designer Tee

I used to play with paper dolls when I was a little girl, designing new outfits for them from scrap paper. As a teen I dreamed of being a dress designer, but I probably wasn't talented/motivated enough!!! I did make my own and my boys clothes for many years. The boys loved their rapper pants and t-shirt/board short combos too. So this stamp, along with it's companion in the Occasions Catalogue, Custom Tee (page 30) and the Tee Shirt Builder framelits were certain to make it over to my house. Designer Tee is in SAB as an add-on and must-have. The cute sentiments can be used very happily on their own too. This super-cute stamp set can be added to your $90 order at no additional cost, and it adds lots of variations to the outfits you can make. There's heaps more inspiration on Pinterest. Remember there is only another fortnight before SALE-A-Bration is over for 2017.

For my first card I've CASE-d the background which the Stampin' Up!® artists have watercoloured and added sequins. I cheated a little and stamped Happy Celebrations and Timeless Textures. Although I've CASE-d the SAB Catty, I had to use the Custom Tee stamps to create this 'outfit'. Of course, the Tee-shirt Builder framelits were vital to my crafting. 

 This card has also had the inside finished off to match with a layer of Mint Macaroon under the white. A little stamping in one corner, and a ribbon banner stapled into the opposite corner are the other finishing touches.

The second card is a closer CASE of the sketch of the same card on the far right. It consists of a narrow centre panel with the art work on it and a contrast colour at the side of the panel, plus a pair of banners behind. Loved this specialty paper from the Tasty Treats DSP, with strawberries and cherries on it. There was a strawberry die and tiny leaves in the Cool Treats suite (Frozen Treats Framelits) also, which I was going to put on the Tee-shirt but later decided to lie beside it. Happy Stamper is a sentiment from the Custom Tee stamp set too,

Although I had used the banner from Bunch Of Banners Framelits before, I hadn't noticed that it made a neat little frame for the banner, so instead of cutting one of each colour and using just the narrow centre of two colours, I framed the Flirty Flamingo with the Pear Pizzazz.

  1. Two fabulous cards Rachel! My mum used to sew clothes for us too. It's a dying art (have you seen the cost of fabric!!!). Kelly x

  2. I love both of your cards Rachel. They look amazing especially the colours you've used. What a great idea to use those yummy strawberries.

  3. they are both cure Rachel, but i think I'm a fan of the strawberry card - didn't notice there were 2 banners until you pointed it out! Great detail.

  4. Such cute cards Rachel! Love them both!

  5. You have been busy again Rachel, great cards. I would never have thought to use the strawberry cardstock with this card but you have made it work.
