CI02 – Colour INKspiration


Welcome to our second challenge for Colour INKspiration!!  The first challenge was amazing, we had over 100 entries!!  Well done to everyone who joined in.

Here is the colour inspiration for this week.  We have Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky, Mint Macaron, Whisper White and Garden Green.  You can also use a couple of neutrals like basic black, crumb cake etc.


I decided to make a gift box using the new Window Box thinlits die.  It is soooo pretty!!  I love how it comes with different inserts so you can change the look of the box easily.  I really love the cut out for the top so I used that on my box.  I created my flowers using the Botanical Builder framelits.  I sponged them for some texture and painted them all over with Wink of Stella.  The photos don’t show just how shiny it is!!

I then just added a bow to dress up the front and side of the box.  I’m not sure who the lucky recipient of this box is but maybe I should give it to my husband so that he can put my birthday present in it!!  Although he might need more than one box (hint hint, nudge nudge).



Next up on the hop is my Onstage roomie, Bronwyn, who has the most amazing project to share with you!!


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.

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.

I hope you enjoy your mid week day off tomorrow!!  I know I will be cos it’s my birthday!!

CTC79 – Projects or Kits


Can you believe that we are casing the last part of the 2016 Occasions Catalogue!!  Hasn’t it been a fun journey!!

So the last section is 3d projects & kits.  One of the things I love about Caseing The Catty is really taking a good look at the amazing projects created by the artists at Stampin’ Up! If you are stuck for mojo just pick up your catalogue and be inspired!!

I was inspired this week by the bag on the right on page 26 using the Botanical Gardens DSP.


But I didn’t have any small brown bags to use but I did have the Petite Café Gift bags in my stash.  I love how you can stamp on the DSP to add a little more detail and a more personalised feel to the paper.  I then created the tag using the Ornate tag topper punch and stamped it using the Suite Sayings stamp set.  This is a really versatile set and I’m glad to see that it is hanging around.

I then created the flower and leaves using the Botanical Builder framlits.  A quick sponge of Cajun Craze in the centre and two little black centres on top of each other, oh and of course a Wink of Stella, and voila, a gorgeous flower for my tag!!

I used a clothespin and put a little bit of washi tape on it. The tag is only held on using the clothespin, so the lucky recipient can pass on the love!!


Here’s a close up of the detail on the flower.  You can almost see Stella!!
