CI06 – Colour Inkspiration

I can’t believe that we are back with another Colour Inkspiration challenge for you!  Isn’t the year just flying past!

Our sixth challenge is Night of Navy, Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Gold.  Such a pretty combination.

I decided to use this card for my monthly stamp club.  I have been wanting to show the ladies how to water colour so I started with a piece of water colour paper and my ink pads and started to play from there.  It’s a bit nerve wracking but I’m happy with how it turned out. I then embossed my sentiment from the Watercolour Words stamp set using gold embossing powder.  I think my powder must be getting a bit old as it’s not as shiny as it used to be.

I then layered up my watercolour piece with gold foil and Calypso Coral and then did a little tag on the side using gold sequins.

The ladies were a bit nervous doing their colouring but they all enjoyed it (well I hope they did!).

Next up is the talented Nikki Spencer.  I can’t wait to see what she has created!

I’m looking forward to seeing what you create with these colours.  Make sure you join in the fun at our Facebook Group.  Just click here and join in!

Happy Stamping

CTC120 – Urban Underground

Here we are with another Sunday CASEing the Catty hop for you.  I really love doing these and enjoy the challenge each week to really study the catalogue and work out what to case.

This week, we are casing the Urban Underground section, from pages 46-49 of the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

I don’t have any of the sets in this section, although I did buy the hexagon embossing folder, which I love!!  I was running a bit short of time to create a card this week (knew I should have done it last week when I had heaps of time!!), so I decided to case the superhero card on page 49.

I really love the block layout of this card.  I decided to use the Balloon Adventures stamp set and the gorgeous SAB Carried Away DSP.  Did you know that on the back of the DSP packet, it lists all the co-ordinating colours used?  That way there is no guessing as to which colours were used.  I went with a Night of Navy base and then used Smoky Slate ink for the sentiment.  I was going to stamp and cut out a balloon but the DSP is just so nice, I decided to let it speak for itself.  This was a really quick card to make so great for when you have to make a last minute card.

Time is running out to earn your favourite sale-a-bration products, so place your qualifying $90 order with me today.  Here’s a link to my online store.  Don’t forget SAB ends on 31 March!

Next up on our hop today is fellow Queenslander, Julia!

CTC119 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

I can’t believe that we are halfway through March already!!  Last year seem to go so slow waiting for my trip to New York and now it’s been nearly 5 months since I returned!

It’s finally starting to get a bit cooler here in Queensland.  Bring on Autumn, I say!!

This week we are casing the final section of the Sale-a-bration catalogue, pages 16-19. But don’t worry, Sale-a-bration isn’t finished yet and neither are we!

This section includes the Hey Chick set and I have to admit this is not my favourite set although all the creations I have seen look amazing.  So far, it is actually the most popular SAB stamp set in all the Stampin’ Up! markets.

I decided to case the chicken card on the right on page 15.

I’m having a market stand on the day before Mother’s Day so I’m planning on making a few Mother’s Day cards for all those last minute shoppers.  I went with Rose Red, Pink Pirouette and Sahara Sand as my colours and used the Double Take stamp set for the sentiment.  I kept the same Large Polka Dot embossing folder as the original.

I just love the Make a Medallion SAB stamp set and made my circles.  I am slightly addicted to the layering circle framelits at the moment so this set was perfect for me!  To create the banner, I tried the solid love image in Pink Pirouette but it didn’t stand out very well on the Sahara Sand card stock so I used Rose Red and stamped off first then onto the cardstock which turned out much better.  I then stamped the second thin love without stamping off for a darker colour.

It needed a bit of bling, so I added a few rhinestones to the centre of the medallion.

I was then drawn to the Designer Tee samples on page 18 and decided to case the t-shirt card on the right.

 

I like the sentiments in the Designer Tee stamp set although I don’t have the matching framelits.  I had a flip through my DSP and decided to use the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP stack.  I’ve been practising my watercolour technique and I seem to be getting the knack of it.  Being patient and just waiting for it to dry before adding more colour helps a lot!!

Once again, the layering circle framelits with their complimentary Stitched shapes framelits make an appearance!  I’m pretty happy with how this card turned out!!

Time is running out to earn your favourite sale-a-bration products, so place your qualifying $90 order with me today.  Here’s a link to my online store.  Don’t forget SAB ends on 31 March!

Next up on our hop today is the lovely Kathryn.

Colour Inkspiration 05

Welcome back to another Colour Inkspiration challenge.  Aren’t you just loving seeing all the amazing entries on the Facebook Group?  Congratulations to the winners this week.

I really like the colours in this week’s challenge.  My first thought was baby but apparently a few other team members thought the same so I decided to go floral instead.

ci05

This week’s colours are Blushing Bride, Soft Sky and Sahara Sand.  I was excited to find that these colours are in my favourite DSP, Falling in Love from the Occasions catalogue.

I had a flip through my framelits and found the Rose Garden thinlits and decided to base my card around them.  They are just so pretty, I should use them more often.

Once I glued the flowers to the card, I then added Wink of Stella to the flowers to make them sparkle a bit more.  Unfortunately Stella doesn’t seem to photograph well, but she’s there!

Next up on the hop is the amazing Lou Kitzelman. I just love what she creates!!

CTC118 – Cool Treats

ctc_header

I can’t believe that we are in March already!  But yay for Autumn!!  Although I wish it would start to get a bit cooler.

Here we are with another Caseing the Catty challenge.  We are casing the Cool Treats section of the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.  This section is huge from pages 32-45.

ctc118-fb

I don’t have the Cool treats set, although I do have the Tasty Treats Specialty DSP which is sooo cute!  I decided to case the blue card on the right with the lace on the sides.

ctc118-bec-d

I love this layout.  I used the Suite Sentiments stamp set for my sentiment and the Balloon from the Up and Away thinlits cut out from the Tasty Treats Specialty DSP.   I sponged the background in pool party.  I did use watermelon wonder but my photo has come out a bit red than I intended!  I also used some Stella on the balloon for some extra sparkle!  (You know I love my sparkle!!)

 

ctc118-bec-a

There were so many lovely cards in this section that I had to do another one as well.  I cased the card on page 41.

ctc118-bec-c

I love a shaker card but I decided not to do that part on this card.  I wanted to try a different colour combo (although now that I look at the original, it doesn’t look much different!) so I went to My Create Ink for suggestions.

It came up with Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake, So Saffron and Blushing Bride. Once I had the colours, I felt it said baby card to me.

Don’t you just love the debossed look?  I love it and it looks fab with the stamping over the top.

CTC117 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

I hope you are enjoying all the amazing Sale-a-bration stamps and products!  Especially given the fact that they are all free!!

We are caseing the Sale-a-bration catalogue again this week, pages 12-15.

ctc117-fb-2

I was inspired by the card in the middle on page 12, featuring the Tasty Trucks stamp set.

ctc117-bec-c

I decided to use the new Sale-a-bration stamp set, Make a Medallion as I hadn’t inked it up yet.  I also wanted to use the Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper (which is also a new SAB freebie).  I went to the My Creak Ink site and put in Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White and it came up a few suggestions.  I decided to go with Sweet Sugarplum, Mint Macaron, Whisper White and Island Indigo.

I used the same Sparkle embossing folder as it’s cute.  I then stamped the medallions using Island Indigo and Mint Macaron and the sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum.  To cut out the circles, I used the Layering Circle famelits.  I just love the scallops!!

ctc117-bec-a

Here’s a close up of the circle. It’s so sparkly!!

Colour INKspiration CI04

It’s been an exciting fortnight seeing all the amazing entries for the last colour challenge.  Congratulations to the winners!!

I found the next challenge to be, well a little challenging!  The combination this week is Elegant Eggplant, Crushed Curry, Delightful Dijon and Whisper White.

ci04-challenge

I went to my stash only to find that I had completely run out of Elegant Eggplant cardstock!! How does that happen!!  So I turned to another purple instead, Wisteria Wonder.

I never really create a card with an end result in mind.  I wanted to use the gorgeous So Detailed thinlits and of course, I knew the colours I was going to use.  I decided to create a water coloured background with the three colours. I then cut out the thinlits in Delightful Dijon, and trimmed off the edges.  I sponged the back in tombow glue and attached it to the watercoloured piece.

I love the Stitched Shape framelits and decided they would make a great feature for the sentiment, which comes from the So in Love stamp set.  Did you know that you can get the So Detailed thinlits and the So in Love stamp set as a bundle and save 10%.

ci04-bec

I can’t wait to see what you all create with this combo!

Next up is the very talented Liz Gross.  You are going to love her card!!
