CTC20 – It’s about my favourites!!

Fancy that, this week’s challenge is using my two favourite products!!! Blendies and Framelits!!!

Our challenge this week is to be inspired by a project from the Sale-a-bration catalogue and use Blendabilities and Framelit dies in your project.

So I’ve kinda done this one before (ooops!!) so I had to try and find something new to do. I used this card from page 18 of the AU/NZ SAB catalogue as my base inspiration.

I’ve used the idea of looking through a hole in a fence. Isn’t the From the Herd set cute!! Although I think I might need to practice my animal colouring a bit more!! #itsmeanttobeartistic #lol

So make sure you join in with the Challenge at http://www.caseingthecatty.blogspot.com.au

You can directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combo, embellishment, just to name a few examples, as a springboard for your own creations. It doesn’t even have to be about scrapbooking, journaling or Project Life. For example, you can use a sketch idea for a card or 3D item.

AAaahhh sweet baby

There’s nothing like cuddles with a new little baby and watching their cute little face as they sleep.

One of my friends had a little boy just the other day and I popped around for a visit today. I love baby cuddles!! However, nappy change time is not for me!!

Of course, I can’t go around empty handed, so I cased this card from Pinterest. But it’s a little boy so you can’t add a doily, so I used the bannner from the Balloon framelits from the Occasions catalogue.

The Lullaby DSP is so cute. Did you know that one side of the dsp is in pink tones and the other blue. That way there’s no wastage as you can use it all!!

baby love

And of course, no card is complete without a bit of bling!! It’s sort of blue isn’t it!! hehe!!

Happy stamping!!

Is there no limit to the Awesomeness of Blendies!!!

I don’t think there is!!! There are so many different things you can do with them. Have I mentioned that I love them!! Well, maybe once or twice!! hehe

I love the Big News stamp set in the main catalogue. Sometimes, you just need a large sentiment and this set is perfect for that. It also covers a number of different occasions, like birthday, new baby, wedding so it’s quite versatile.

As another project to share at Team Day recently, I showed the girls how you can use blendabilities to colour white embossing powder on dark cardstock. It works best with a dark coloured background cardstock as you colour over the embossing.

How great does this look? If I do say so myself!!

It’s got bling!!

I’ve been doing a lot of playing with my Blendabilties lately in preparation for my talk at Team Day. Have I ever mentioned that I love them!! They make me look like I’m arty!!

I discovered that you can colour silver glimmer paper with your blendies!! Happy Dance time!! Coloured bling!! This way, you can always have matching glitter.

I don’t know about you, but I really love the Butterflies thinlits. I coloured my butterfly with the darker colour in the centre and on the outer parts of the wing and then a little bit of the next shade on the wings and then the lightest colour in the middle. I have found that blendies do seem to dry lighter if you are after a particular colour, make sure you do a test piece on a bit of scrap.

And isn’t the Painted Blooms DSP just the loveliest DSP? It’s a bit hard to cut up, it’s so pretty but there’s no point in just looking at it!! Got to use it!! I also like the matching stamp set and the sentiments in it.

Let me know what you think and leave a comment below.

CTC 18 – Party time!!!

It’s time to case the Birthday section of the Occasions catalogue at Case-ing the Catty this week.

I really like the Balloon Bash stamp set although I must confess that this is the first time I’ve used it!!

I was inspired by the project on the right hand corner of page 12 of the AU/NZ catalogue.

ctc18

I wasn’t that keen to make a pompom out of baker’s twine today but I do like the idea. I’ll keep it in mind for another day!

I used the same DSP but I selected the Birthday Bash Specialty DSP as it has a bit of gold flecks on it. And we always need a bit of bling, don’t we!!

ctc 18 RS

I also added a bit more bling with the Bermuda Bay sequins as part of the hangy bit. (that’s a technical term,you know!)

I hope you can join in with us this week.

Team Day Blending

I’m back home after a great weekend in Melbourne with my amazing stamping team, the Eureka Stampers!!!

team day

I was asked to do a presentation about Blendabilities, which you may have noticed I like just a little bit!!! Now I know I’m not an expert but I love to give them a go. I found a number of techniques to show everyone, and over my next few blog posts, will share with you too.

One of the simplest techniques is colouring DSP, or Designer Series Paper. In the current catalogue, there is the Back to Black DSP or in the Occasions catalogue, the Stacked with Love DSP stack. I find this technique works best with a dark colour paper as then you don’t need to worry about staying within the lines. Once the ink is dry, you can’t see where you went over.

I used the Stacked with Love DSP stack and coloured it using my new favourite colour, Bermuda Bay blendies. It took a little while, but I think it looks cute!! I also used the Hello You thinlits for the word.
