CTC279 – Casing Sketch

I hope you having a great weekend. It’s a gorgeous day in Queensland today!!

We are casing a sketch this week from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue. It’s on page 72.

Here’s our version of the sketch.

I had a look through my stamp sets for a large image to go on the left and decided on the large flower from the Good Morning Magnolia set. I used the Peony Garden DSP on the background. I stamped the image in Basic Gray for a softer touch and then coloured with Petal Pink and Old Olive blends.

It’s been at least a week since I used my favourite dies, the Stitched So Sweetly dies, so I used them for my sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia set.

Next up is the lovely Michelle. You are going to love her creation this week!!

We would love to see your creation using this sketch, so please share on our Facebook group.

Glitter Wreath

It’s a great day for crafting as it’s rainy today! I had to share with you this card I made using the new Arrange a Wreath bundle which includes the Arrange a Wreath stamp set and the Wreath Builder dies.

I used a piece of DSP from the Flowers for Every Season for the background. I then stamped a few flowers from the stamp set and also die cut a few as well. The larger flower is cut out from the Rainbow Glimmer Paper which is just so sparkly!!

I added a piece of Just Jade ribbon across the bottom and stamped the sentiment in Magenta Madness and cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I also put Wink of Stella on the flowers.

I’d love to know what you think of this bundle, so please leave me a comment below.

Happy Stamping

I’m back with Colour Inkspiration this week! It’s been a little while since I had a chance to join in here.

Check out our colours for this challenge. We have Night of Navy, Merry Merlot, Blackberry Bliss and Pretty Peacock.

Aren’t these colours just divine! As always, I get out a piece of each cardstock and see how I feel inspired by them. I was also inspired by the image and wanted to create a luxurious background. So I flipped through my embossing folders and I was drawn to the Tin Tile embossing folder. Once I had embossed a piece of Blackberry Bliss, I wanted to step it up a notch and I brushed the retired Golden Glitz ink pad over the cardstock.

I then cut out a couple of shapes from the Stitched So Sweetly dies and stamped a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.

We would love to see your creations using this colour combo, so please share over on at our Facebook group.

CTC268 – Casing the Colours of the Ornate Garden Suite

Welcome to week 10000 at home. What day is it? Oh that’s right, it’s Sunday and we are Caseing the Catty!! I haven’t left the house for a week now except to go for walks around my estate. I think I’m going to struggle when I go back to the office!!

This week, we are casing the colours of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP which are Bumblebee, Early Espresso, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Terracotta Tile and Whisper White.

One of my team members shared a group of cards on our team Facebook group using her scraps and I was inspired to create the same with a twist. I grabbed out the cardstock for each of the colours and using Early Espresso as the base of the card, I embossed the other colours using a variety of the floral embossing folders and then trimmed them into 1″ strips.

I then started to attach to the base piece and went from there!! I’m so happy with the end result and it was so easy!! These also look stunning using DSP.

I went a little different on the next one!! Just call me crazy!!

Of course, I had to use my favourite Stitched So Sweetly dies for the sentiments which are from Beautiful Bouquet and Abstract Impressions.

Next up is the lovely Sandra, across the ditch in New Zealand.

I’d love to see what you create using the colours of this pretty designer series paper! Please share over on at our Facebook group.
