Welcome to a fun week of Colour Inkspiration. I’m having a week off work as I’m not having any time off over Christmas (very sad about that!). I’m having a lovely time sleeping in (7am is a sleep in, right?), doing some Christmas shopping, crafting with my Mum and doing some Christmas baking.

We have a great colour combo to play with this week, with Blueberry Bushel, Shaded Spruce, Coastal Cabana, Pretty Peacock and silver.

Isn’t this image just gorgeous! I always start by getting out the cardstock in all the colours and I realised that Blueberry Bushel is part of the Noel Peacock Foil pack. I wanted to emboss it, using the Tin Tile embossing folder. Doesn’t it look stunning!

I used a Pretty Peacock base, and layered the BB foil piece with Silver foil. I decided to use the Bells are Ringing set and matching Detailed Bells Dies. I silver embossed the large bell and then stamped the inside parts of the bell using the Silvery Shimmer ink. I then cut out three other bells in Blueberry Bushel, Coastal Cabana and Silver foil. I also stamped a bunch of leaves in Shaded Spruce.

The sentiment is in Blueberry Bushel and cut out with my favourite Stitched Rectangle dies.

Next up is the lovely Monique. I can’t wait to see what she has created.

CTC251 – Brightly Gleaming

Welcome back to another fun week at Caseing the Catty. I went to a craft show on Friday with my Mum and sister and we had a great time!! So many projects to make and not enough time!!

We are casing the colours of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP and being inspired by a layout from page 30. So the colours are Copper, Night of Navy, Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla and Pretty Peacock.

I decided to case the card on the top right. This is such a lovely card, which I think I’m going to re-create as I love the background dsp, the ornaments and the colours. However, I did do something different for our challenge!

For my background, I embossed a piece of copper foil using the Tufted embossing folder. I love this folder!! It is so elegant.

I then cut 2 stitched rectangles in Pretty Peacock and Very Vanilla and stamped the sentiment from the Bells are Ringing stamp set.

I cut out three bells in Pretty Peacock and Copper foil from the Detailed Bells Dies. I trimmed the copper bell and attached it on the bottom left corner. I tied a bow using the copper trim.

I’m really happy with how this card turned out!! It’s so shiny and you know I love bling!!

Next up is the lovely Shannon. I can’t wait to see what clever creation she has this week.

We would love to see your creations over on at our Facebook group.

CTC248 – Casing Annual Catty using Holiday supplies

Well it seems like Summer is coming early to Queensland. It’s been a bit warm this weekend!! This week we are casing an Annual Catalogue project and use Holiday Catalogue supplies.

I really love the heirloom frame card on page 12 of the 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalogue.

For my background, I used the Stylish Scroll embossing folder. Thi sis such a pretty folder. I created the frame using the Stitched Rectangle dies. I used the Toile Tidings DSP for the centre of the frame. The cardinal and sentiment is from the Toile Christmas stamp set and cut out with the Christmas Cardinal dies.

I’m really happy with how this card turned out! My class ladies might be making this one in October.

Next up is the lovely Rachel.

CTC245 – Let it Snow

It’s been a crazy weekend in Queensland with lots of bush fires. I hope everyone has kept safe. There is one fire near where I live, but don’t worry, we are perfectly safe!!

This week at CTC, we are casing the Let it Snow suite, pages 18-23, of the 2019 Holiday Catalogue. Actually we could do with “Let it Rain”!!!

This is such a cute suite!! And there’s a snowman punch!!! I was inspired by the card at the top of page 18.

When I first looked at this card, I felt the centre shape would make a great shaker piece. I’ve been dying to use the Feels like Frost dsp so this was my base for the colours. I used a piece of silver glimmer paper behind the dsp like the original. I then created the shaker frame using window sheets, foam adhesive sheets, Ice Stampin’ Glitter and Snowflake Sequins. I then cut a frame from silver glimmer paper using the Stitched Rectangle dies.

I punched out a whisper white 2 1/4″ circle and stamped the snowflakes from Frosted Foliage stamp set in Balmy Blue. For the sentiment, I stamped the Merry Christmas from Christmas Gleaming in Silvery Shimmer ink and used the Stitched Rectangle die. I added a piece of the gorgeous Seaside Spray metallic ribbon behind the sentiment.

It’s a little bit sparkly but I love glitter!!! I really think it’s my favourite colour!!

Next up is the lovely Shannon.
