CTC134 – For Babies and Kids

I had my stamp club yesterday and I’ve been practising my baking skills on my ladies!!  I made Cookies and Cream Oreo cupcakes and they looked and tasted great!

We are casing the For Babies and Kids section (pages 102-111) from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue this week.

Now I only have one of the stamps in this section as I don’t need any kid stamps.  Although I do own the Foxy set, I decided to case the pink communion card on page 111.

Instead of using a background stamp, I used the Garden Trellis embossing folder.  On the very vanilla piece in the middle, I stamped off three times using Crumb Cake ink and the background stamp from the Graceful Garden stamp set.  I did the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Rose Red.

I stamped my rose in Memento Black then coloured it using blender pens with Wild Wasabi and Rose Red.  I then cut it out carefully.  I added some mini gold sequins and then attached it all together.  I wanted to add a touch of Stella to the flower but I opened a new one and it all came out in a big whoosh, so it’s a bit more sparkly than I intended.

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

Next up is Rachel.

CTC133 – Love and Sympathy

It’s so nice having a new catalogue and starting to play with my new goodies.  We are slowly working our way through the new catalogue and it’s lovely to see all the fabulous creations on the CTC Facebook group.  If you would like to check them out, just click here and join up!  And don’t forget to add your creation as well.

This week, we are casing the Love and Sympathy section, pages 86-101 of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.

I decided to case the grey card on page 101 which used the You’ve Got this stamp set, which I do love. I did want to use a different set and colours, cos I wanted to play with new goodies!!

This catalogue has some amazing new background stamps, and I’ve recently bought Sheet Music as I have a few musical friends and this will be perfect for cards for them.  So straight away, I had to turn the card from landscape to portrait as you can’t have music laying on it’s side!!  I did stamp it in black first but it was too harsh, so I used Sahara Sand instead for a softer look.

I used the Oh So Eclectic Stamp set and the matching Eclectic Layers thinlits.  I’m not sure if the thinlits are meant to cut out the more solid flower but I used it anyway!  I used Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Pear Pizzazz for the flowers and leaves.  I almost forgot to mention that I put Clear Stella on the cut out flower for a  bit more sparkle.

One of the products I often forget to use is Vellum!  But every time I use it, I wonder why I don’t use it more often.  I cut out a banner using the triple Banner punch and then stamped the sentiment from the Just Add Text stamp set.

Oh, oh, can you see the new mini sequins!!  They are soooo cute!!  #diedandgonetoheaven #sparklesaremyhappyplace

Now don’t forgot to come and join the group and share your project casing the Love and Sympathy section.

Next up is the lovely Judy.

CI11

Isn’t the year just flying past?  Can you believe we are in June already and have a new catalogue to play with?  There are so many lovely new stamps and goodies in this catalogue.

We have a great challenge this week at Colour Inkspiration, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip and Marina Mist.  Can I just mention that I’m really excited to be following Tanya this week!  I’ve admired her work for many years and love the fabulous tutorials that she creates.

As always, my first thought is “what can I do with this?”  Seeing as I had my new toys to play with, I went with the Climbing Orchid stamp set and the matching Orchid Builder Framelits.  Oh, these are so fun to play with.  Once I worked out how to create an orchid (harder than you think!!), I was on my way!!

I cut out two branches from the Seasonal Layers thinlits and trimmed one to make a larger branch.  I did attempt to spritz the base layer of Soft Suede but I didn’t want to overdo it and as you can see, it’s very lightly distressed!!  Ah well, some things work and some don’t!!

As you can tell, I started a new Stella and it came out very sparkly.  You can never have too much sparkle!!

I also used one of the sentiments from the Colorful Seasons which I felt was appropriate.  I love this stamp set as it is so versatile.

Next up is the fabulous Nikki Spencer.

We would love you to join in with this challenge and add your entry to our Facebook group, which you can join here.

CTC132 – Birthdays

It’s so exciting!!  My new catalogue order arrived this week!!  I petted, patted and drooled over it.  But did I stamp with it?  Nope!!  I’ve had a busy couple of days and I’m working this weekend, so I’ll be playing next week.  Can’t wait!!

We are casing the Birthday section of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue, pages 68-85.

Once again, there are so many amazing cards to case in this section.  I realised that I haven’t used the Sweet Cupcake stamp set for ages, but I liked the sample on the page 85.

I decided to create the base layer on a separate piece of card so that if there was a mistake, I wasn’t wasting the whole card.  I started with the Happy Birthday stamp from the Sweet Cupcake set using Tranquil Tide.  I accidently had them a bit too far apart.  When I looked at the stamp set, it has a very handy belated stamp!  I stamped in it Powder Pink.

I stamped the cake base and the bottom layer of icing in Powder Pink.  I then did the top layer of icing in Berry Burst.  I also added some Clear Stella.  You always need sparkle on a cake!!  hehe!!

I used the Layered circle framelits for the base and the Birthday banner stamp set and matching Bunch of Banners framelits.

Actually I did use one of my new products!!  You’ll never guess, cos you can’t see it!!  I got the new mini dimensionals!!!  They are too cute!!

I also added some thick white twine.  I’m rather happy with the end result!!  Now who’s birthday did I miss!

Next up on the hop is the lovely Julia.

Don’t forget to pop over to our Facebook group where you can join in with the challenge.  And if you are an Australian or New Zealand demonstrator, we are looking for more Crew members.  Just participate in June’s challenges and we will consider you.

Happy Caseing!

New Catty Pennsationals Blog Hop

I’m so excited to doing a Blog Hop tonight with my amazing team, the Pennsationals and to be sharing the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue with you.

There are so many fabulous new products in this catalogue, I had trouble deciding what to share with you.  For my first card, I decided to go with the Just Add Text stamp set and the new Delightful Daisy DSP.

I used my favourite framelits, the Stitched Shape framelits and the matching Layering Oval framelits.  Oh and check out the new Daffodil Delight Double stitched ribbon.

For my second card, I went with Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  This set has an interesting combination of stamps.  I really like the flowers in this set.

Now I have to confess that Lemon Lime Twist is not my favourite In Color, however, I thought I would give it a go as a watercolor background.  I guess it’s ok!  lol!

I used Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo and Flirty Flamingo and I was quite surprised at how nice they look together.

Next up on the hop is my lovely upline and friend, Tracy Penn.

If you happen to get lost on the hop, here is a list of all the participants.

CTC131 – Everyday Occasions

Oh how exciting!!  The 2017-2018 Annual catalogue started this week!!  I’m so excited to be to start casing this gorgeous catalogue with you.

This week, we are casing the Everyday Occasions section, pages 18-67.

I decided to case the tags on page 27 and turn them into cards using the Label Me Pretty stamp set and the matching punch, Pretty Label punch.  Which, by the way, is available in a bundle!

I did the two on the left side.  These tags use the stunning Wood Textures DSP Stack.  The wood grains in this paper are amazing!

I kept my first one fairly similar to the original and just changed the stamp.  As the original sample was a tag, I felt that the card needed a bit extra being larger, so I added a couple of banners at the bottom.

For my second card, I used the happy birthday stamp and coloured it with Bermuda Bay, Powder Pink, Pear Pizzazz and Flirty Flamingo markers.   I then punched a Powder Pink label and cut it in half.  I then attached it behind the stamped layer.

Instead of using paper banners, I added a bow instead using the new Bermuda Bay Mini Chevron Ribbon.

I’m so thrilled with this DSP, it is so lovely!!  If you need it too, you can get it at my online store, here.

Next up is fellow Queenslander, Julia!!

Happy Hopping

Oh Happy Day

It’s the best day of the Stampin’ Up! calendar!!  Well actually it was yesterday but I had to work and didn’t get a chance to blog.

It’s a new catalogue!!  Woo Hoo!!  Have you had a chance to see this gorgeous new catalogue.  It will keep you quiet for hours whilst you check out all the new goodies.  If you want to see it online, click here, or I’m happy to post one out to you.  Just send me an email at stampinwithrebecca@yahoo.com.au and I’ll get one off to you.

I have had the catalogue since the start of April when I attended the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event in Sydney.  I’ve had my catalogue bound at Officeworks and had a spiral edge put on it.  I do this every year although it’s always hard to be separated from my catty!  But it’s worth it as it stops it getting tatty.

I was lucky enough to receive the Ribbon of Courage stamp set as a Prize Patrol at Onstage.  I think this is a great set and will be handy for fundraising events.

I didn’t receive the framelits, but you can bet they were one of the first things on my order!

My team did a swap after Onstage and I decided to use this set.  I was inspired by one of the amazing Artisan’s, Kimberly Van Diepen, with her lovely card highlight Autism Awareness.

I used the new Berry Burst In Colour which is quickly becoming one of my new favourites.  I also have to say that the Stitched Shape framelits are my favs as well!!

I just love this set and I’m sure I will be using it a lot.

If you need it too, you can order at my online store, here.  Make sure you use hostess code, T3PYE2CD, to go into the draw to receive a gift from me.

Happy New Catalogue Shopping!
