CTC111 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

Don’t you just love freebies!  I certainly do!!  Especially when it comes to stamps and paper!

We are casing the brand new Sale-a-bration catalogue this week.  Don’t you just love the Inside the Lines DSP.  Too die for!!

I have decided to case the layout of the square card on page ?

ctc111-bec-b

I kinda made it rather large, just folded a piece of a4 cardstock in half and trimmed it to make a square.  But that’s ok, I wanted to show case the Tasty Treats Specialty DSP.  I couldn’t decide which ice-cream to choose, so I went with them all.  I added a pool party matt as I wanted to make the squares “pop”.  I used the hello stamp from the Vertical Garden stamp set using Watermelon Wonder and shadowed it with Chocolate Chip to match the colours in the DSP.

I layered the banner on a strip of Watermelon Wonder and added a bow using the silver ribbon from the free SAB metallic ribbon combo. Oh, and I used the Banner Triple punch to create the banner.

I even made a matching envelope and STAMPED it!!  Lol, I always forget about the envelope. And you know what, I’ve even sent it out already!!

I hope you like my card.  Next on the hop is the amazing Mel Pagano.

CI01 – Colour INKspiration – Popiscles

I’m excited that it’s the first challenge of the Colour INKspiration tonight!!  We are a group of Australian and New Zealand Stampin’ Up! demonstrators that love to create projects based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches.

Our first challenge is to use at least 3 of the following colours, Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Mint Maccaron, Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach and Blushing Bride.

These colours remind me of birthday parties.  So I decided to use the new Balloon Adventures stamp set and the co-ordinating Balloon Pop-Up thinlits.  I love to make shaker cards so birthdays are perfect!

I stamped the confetti on the base of the card stock and then created the shaker using the thinlits.  I punched out the sprinkles for the inside of the shaker using the Sprinkles punch.  I did pick out the large pieces as I didn’t want it to be too chunky.  I also put a strip of foam adhesive strips underneath the party on sentiment so that all the sprinkles wouldn’t end up down the bottom.

CTC110 – Party Animal

ctc_header

Welcome back to another year of Caseing the Catty!!  I hope you had a Merry Christmas and a fabulous New Year.  I’m coming to the end of holidays and back at work tomorrow.  I’ve had a lovely time pottering around at home and tidying up my craft room and doing some crafting.

The 2017 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration catalogue started this week and wow, Stampin’ Up! have created two fabulous catalogues!

We are excited to case the Occasions Catalogue this week and the Party Animal section on pages 4-7.

ctc110

I decided to case the card at the top of page 6 using the Big on Birthdays stamp set.  I just love this set!

ctc110-b

I also love the Falling in Love DSP so I decided to combine the two.  To create the scallop edge, I used the Layering Squares framelits and cut out strips and joined them together.  I stamped the sentiment and flowers in Soft Suede and coloured in with Blushing Bridge and Old Olive using the blender pens.  Of course, you need a bit of bling, so I layered the new Very Vanilla satin ribbon and blushing bride sequins.

ctc110-a

I hope you have enjoyed my card!  Next on our hop is my lovely friend, Simone Bartrum.

Casing at Global Design Project

I haven’t played along at Global Design Project for ages, but I had to give it a go this week as the challenge is to case my gorgeous friend, Jessica Williams from The Paper Caper.  So this is her project and the challenge is to either case the layout, colours or theme etc.

jess-gdp-case

I decided to case the colours and the layout.  I love Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron and I’ll be really sad when they retire at the end of May.

I was inspired to use the Lift Me Up stamp set from the new 2017 Occasions Catalogue and the matching Up & Away thinlits.  Don’t you just love this balloon!! And look, I used washi tape!!  I always forget to use washi tape but I really love it.  You should see my collection.  lol!!

Colour INKspiration Introduction

ci-banner

I have some exciting news to share.  I’m on the Colour INKspiration Crew! It consists of a team of talented Aussie and NZ Stampin’ Up! ® Demonstrators that create projects based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches.

There’s also a Facebook group for Stampin’ Up! ® enthusiasts who would like to share their paper craft projects using the colour combinations.

Here’s the deal – Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 7 pm (AEDT), a new colour swatch will be uploaded to the Facebook Colour INKspiration Group and the Colour INKspiration Crew will get the ball rolling by providing inspiration for each challenge with a blog hop. Our first one starts on Wednesday, 11th January.

Members of the group have the option to join the Colour INKspiration ‘Challenge’ by uploading photos of their projects and can link back to their personal blog if they wish to. Make sure you click on the link below and ask to join Colour INKspiration, add the group to your favourites and share it with your crafty friends so they can join in with the challenges too.

So before we get started on 11 January, we are having a little pre-challenge to get into the groove.  Our colours are Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron.  You can add any neutrals or metallics papers that you like.  I was excited about this combo as Bermuda Bay is one of my favourite colours.

pre-challenge

So I just unpacked my pre-order parcels that I’ve had since the start of December and I just had to play with the Inside the Lines DSP which you can earn for free during Sale-a-bration.  Yay!!  And of course, I had to use the new water colour pencils too. Fortunately there was a Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight pencil.   Oh my goodness, these pencils are amazing!  Even if you aren’t arty, they make your project look stunning.  All I did was a little scribble on the flower then used my blender pen to spread the colour around.

I also used the new Falling in Love embellishments. You are going to fall in love with these. So pretty!

pre-challenge-card

I’m not one for making new year’s resolutions but I do intend to send more birthday cards this year, so I wonder who is going to get this one.  If you would like me to send you a card, just comment below with your email address and birthday.

Don’t forget that the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration start on 4th January!! Woo hoo!!

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you!!  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!!  I certainly did.  I must have been very good as Santa was very generous!

Since my two holidays, I feel like I have been playing catch up trying to get everything done that needed to get done before Christmas.  I didn’t quite make it with getting enough Christmas cards made so I’m sending Happy New Year cards as well this year!!

I was inspired on Pinterest by this gorgeous card by Create with Kaitlyn.  I wanted to use the Banners for Christmas stamp set as it had a Happy New Year stamp and the Banners for You stamp set as it had the flowers. I also changed the colours.  I often use My Create Ink to help me with colour combo’s if I have a couple of colours in mind but not sure what to put with them.  This time I had Whisper White and Sweet Sugar Plum and it suggested So Saffron, Pool Party and Mint Macaroon.

new-year-card

As I had a few to send, this was a nice and easy card to make lots of!!

Don’t forget the Year-End Closeout Sale ends on 3 January 2017.  Click here to see what is on sale!!  If you are a DSP addict, you are going to want to check out the paper!

Happy New Year!!  See you in 2017!!
