I’m so excited to be a part of the ESAD blog hop and sharing my favourites from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue with you.
I am loving all things flowers in the new catty and two of my favourite sets are the Floral Statements stamp set and the Climbing Orchid stamp set.
For my first card, I silver embossed the Thanks stamp of the Floral Statements stamp set. I have to tell you, this looks so pretty all on it’s own! I then coloured it with the watercolour pencils. I used Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry for the flowers and Old Olive for the greenery. A little bit of blending with a blender pen, and voila!! it’s all done! I then layered it up with Silver foil, Rich Razzleberry and an Old Olive base. I just love the Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon, don’t you?
I just received my order of the new embossing paste and had to play with it straight away! I used a small bit of paste and mixed it with Cherry cobbler and Cajun Craze re-inkers to make a brick wall using the decorative masks. This stuff is so fun!! And very addictive!!!
To create my orchids to climb up the wall, my clever friend, Bronwyn Eastley has created a number of orchid images to inspire us. Click here to see her images. I decided to use this one for my next card.
To create the stems, I used the stem from the Seasonal Layers thinlits, cut out two and stuck them together with my fine tip glue pen. Whilst that was drying, I created the flowers using Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight. I also added some Stella to the DD flowers for a bit of bling.
I then created the sentiment using the Birthday Banners stamp set and the Bunch of Banners framelits.
I’m pretty happy with these two cards!! Please leave me a comment and let me know if you do too!

Stampin’ Up! Product List
I am really enjoying caseing the 2015 Holiday catalogue this year. There are so many lovely projects to choose from!!
This week at Caseing the Catty we are up to the Into the Woods section. I don’t have many of the sets in this section but one of my favourite sets of the whole catalogue is Lighthearted Leaves. I have seen so many lovely cards done using this set. So, of course, it was the stamp set of choice this week.
I am caseing the sponged card on page 44 of the catty.
This was such an easy card to make. I made a template of the leaf and then sponged with the lighter colour. This is a polymer set which made it so easy to stamp the second image over the top.
I’ve gone with a different colour theme for the two cards I made. One combo of Soft Sky and Marina Mist and the other Perfect Plum and Blackberry Bliss. I added a touch of bling by using some silver thread. I don’t seem to have the knack of artistically arranging twine or thread, but you get the idea!!
I used the washi tape punch and the thanks sentiment from the Cottage Greetings stamp set.
For the second card, I used the Lots of Labels framelits and trimmed it down and the happy birthday stamp from the Cottage Greetings set.
I’m very happy with the end result!! I might have to do this with some more sets!!

We are back with another blog hop with my amazing team, the Pennsationals!! You may have come from the lovely Emma at Vintage Graffiti or be starting the hop here with me.
This time, we are doing a colour challenge and I have to say, it was a bit of a challenge for me!! I was quite stumped for a while.
But then I found my mojo and got going!! I used the Friendly Wishes stamp set and coloured it with the Pacific Point and Blackberry Bliss markers. I then used a combination of circle punches and framelits to create the layers around the sentiment.
I used the Go Wild DSP stack (have you seen this, it’s great if you love animal prints!!) to add a some detail in the background. I added a silver layer to the background and used the silver satin ribbon for the final touch.
I hope you like my card for the hop today. Please leave me a comment and let me know!!
Next on the hop is my lovely upline, Tracy.
I just love my team and the support that we give each other. We have a facebook group to keep in touch as we are spread out over a few states, which makes it easier to feel a part of the team. We love to share our latest projects with each other, and asking questions when we need help, either with a technique or when it comes to our Stampin’ Up! business. One of the things I love the most is when we can get together at Stampin’ Up! events which is actually happening in less than 5 weeks time at the very first Onstage Local event in Melbourne. I can’t wait to catch up with the girls in person!! If you would love to be a part of the team, all you need to do is join up with me!! Just go here, and select your starter kit today! If you want to come to Onstage Local, you need to be a demonstrator, so what are you waiting for! LOL
We have just a short hop today. If you get lost on the hop, here is the list of participants.

Have you fallen in love with all the gorgeous products in the 2015 Holiday Catalogue yet? You will after doing this blog hop!! I’m excited to be a part of the ESAD 2015 Holiday Blog!! You may have come from the fabulous Jo Weedon’s blog or be starting the hop here with me.
So onto my projects!! I have to admit I was a little stumped on what to make as there are so many lovely products in this catalogue. I simply couldn’t decide which stamp set to use. I decided to try a sketch challenge and found one at Sweet Sunday Sketch that I liked.
You know how sometimes it’s really hard to cut up Designer Series Paper? Well, I’ve been having a bit of trouble cutting into the Home for Christmas DSP! So I’ve bitten the bullet and done it! Using the colour’s of the DSP, I layered up my card in Real Red, Pool Party and Delightful Dijon.
I used the Cozy Christmas stamp set and inked up the stamp using markers. Doesn’t it look fab!!
I also had to create a matching envelope using the Real Red envelope paper. Did you know that you can get 20 sheets for only $10.50. That’s a lot of cute envelopes!!
I just love the Snowflake as well especially with an Iced Rhinestone on it!!
I also liked the slightly larger Season stamp in the set so I made the same card using a different piece of the Home for Christmas DSP. Oh, and isn’t the Stripes Satin ribbon to die for? I wasn’t a fan to start with but it is very luxurious looking. I can see I’m going to use it a lot.
I hope you have enjoyed my cards for the hop today. I’d love for you to leave me a comment below.

Happy Stamping and Hopping!!
Stampin’ Up! Product List:
Welcome to the Eureka Stampers Retirement Blog Hop! You may be starting here with me, or have hopped around from the fabulous Mel.
One of my favourite tools to use (aside from the Big Shot) is the Colour Coach which is sadly retiring. I hope they bring out something similar. I find it really handy when I am looking for a new colour combo. For our hop today, I got out my trusty colour coach and had a look at the suggestions for Bermuda Bay (fav colour at the mo!!). I decided to go with Bermuda Bay, Tangerine Tango and Smoky Slate. The next step was to decide what stamp set to use. Fortunately, I have 47 stamp sets that are retiring so I had a few to choose from!! I decided I would feature stamps and their matching punches for my projects today.
For my first card, I used the Mosaic Madness stamp and the matching mosaic punch. I love this bundle and will be sad to see them go. I used Smoky Slate cardstock for my base and then the Brights DSP stack for the Bermuda Bay patterned paper. I carefully laid out the punched shapes and stuck them down with fast fuse. I added a piece of the silver satin ribbon (it looks very close to smoky slate) and used the Apothecary Accents framelits (which are retiring) and the Lots of Thanks stamp set.
Here’s a closer look.
For my second card, I was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest by Card Creations by Beth.
I stuck with the same colour combo as before but used a different stamp/punch bundle – Label Love stamp set and Artisan label punch. I also used the Alphabet Press embossing folder (retiring) which is great for baby cards.
I hope you have enjoyed my cards today. Please leave me a comment!!

It is time for a blog hop with my fabulous stamping team, the Eureka Stampers!! With Easter quickly approaching, our theme is, of course, Easter!! Can you believe how fast the year is going!!!
You may be starting with my blog, or possibly have come from Carly Middleton’s blog. Don’t you just love her cute project!!
I have a couple of projects to show you today. I think the Happy Easter Bunny stamp in the Occasions catalogue is very cute and I wanted to showcase colouring the bunny.
For my first card, I wanted to use the Subtles Colour Collection and my blender pens, and I carefully coloured using Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz. I stamped using staz-on ink as I didn’t want it to bleed when I coloured.
My second card is made using the Brights Colour Collection and the Flowerpot DSP as the background. To be a little different, I used the bow builder punch. Isn’t it cute!!
I think I will be sending these to my nieces for Easter with an ITunes gift card!! Easter eggs do not travel well in the mail!!
My third card is made using the Indescribable Gift stamp set. I think the flowers in this set are beautiful. I have also used my aqua painter to colour the flowers. I’m happy with how it turned out.
I hope you have enjoyed my projects. I’d love you to leave a comment below. To continue hopping, go to Rose’s blog here.

Welcome to the first (of many, I hope!!) blog hop of my fabulous team, the Eureka Stampers!!!
We come under the leadership of the lovely Simone Bartrum. We are spread across the country but we keep in touch through our team facebook group, sharing what we have made, and helping each other out with advice. I love being a part of this team and catching up with everyone at Convention!!
Seeing as we have a brand spanking new catalogue, we decided to do a blog hop featuring projects from the new catalogue.
You may have noticed that I have been doing a few projects lately with Blendabilities. (Yes, just one or two, I know!!) So, of course, I had to feature these today!!!
I now have a few more stamps appropriate for colouring since my order arrived. I especially bought the Corner Garden stamp to use with Blendabilities. I was really happy with how this card turned out. It took a while to do, so I would suggest doing these for someone special in your life who will appreciate the work involved. I have a very special lady in mind for this one!
My second project features the new Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bags and the Accessory Kit. I have actually cased the catalogue on page 7, however I have made a few changes. The Accessory kit comes with self-adhesive strips so I thought the new Hearts Border punch would look pretty across the bottom of the bag. It also comes with 18.3 metres (yes that’s right!) of Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine which I used around the top of the bag.
So the next stop on the hop is the wonderful Simone Bartrum. I wonder what awesomeness she has come up with?? You can click on the link, here.
