CTC54 – It’s a colour challenge!!

I look forward each week to seeing what we are doing at Caseing the Catty. This week, we are being inspired by the colour combination on page 9 of the 2015 Holiday catalogue, featuring Mossy Meadow, Pool Party and Real Red.

I was also inspired by the card on page 11 showcasing the Hearth & Home Thinlits die and the Happy Scenes Stamp set.

To suit our colour theme, I used a Mossy Meadow base and layered it up with Whisper White and Real Red. I used the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper from the main catalogue for something different. (Also, it had Real Red in it too!!)

To create the stars in the sky, I used the snow flake stamp from the Happy Scenes stamp set and inked it with Pool Party. I then stamped it off before stamping onto the main piece so that it would be more subtle.

Without further ado, here it is!!

It’s time for a change

From Christmas cards, that is!!!!

I have been making lots of Christmassy things for ages and I am slightly over it!! I have a dear friend having a birthday this week, so I wanted to make a special card for her. I have to say I really enjoyed making something else!!

I wanted to use the Corner Garden stamp set and my blendabilities. Honestly, it’s been ages since I used them!!

So a quick search on Pinterest found this lovely card by It’s a Stamp Thing. I love the way she uses only a portion of the stamp.

As my friend loves anything purple, I had to use Blackberry Bliss. This is such a gorgeous deep purple. The photos definitely don’t do it justice. I embossed the crumb cake cardstock with white embossing powder. This looked lovely all on it’s own. I will have to try it with coloured cardstock as well. I then coloured it with Old Olive for the leaves, and then Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry and Night of Navy.

l bday

I hope she likes it!!

Happy Stamping

I love the mo, bro!!

I have to confess that I love the new moustache framelit and matching stamp set!! When I first saw it, I thought it was very cute but I didn’t need it. But I kept looking at it and finally decided to bite the bullet and get it. And at only $13.95 for the framelit, you can’t really go wrong!!

I thought it would make a great card for Father’s Day for stamp club so I did a quick search on Pinterest and found a great card by Rose Castillo here.

I only made a couple of changes by punching out the sentiment with the Word Window punch and mounting it on the Modern label punch. I love the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamps set as they all fit into the word window punch and there are lots to choose from. A couple of the ladies used the Happy Birthday stamp instead.

And here’s a closer look at the mo.

I hope you like it!! And I hope Dad and Pop don’t look here before Father’s Day!! I think I’m pretty safe!!

20 January 2014 – Oohh, I like the shiny paper!!!

Where is the year going!!! It seems to be flying past already!!

We had stamp club on the weekend and I wanted to share a project using the gorgeous Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. I really love this DSP and wanted to show how it could be used in a non-christmassy way. I had not used all the shimmery paper in the pack (shock, horror, I know!!), so I decided to use that one as the background.

I was inspired by Dani Dziama, here. I loved her card, especially with the doily.

I gave the girls a sneaky peak at a new product being featured in the Sale-a-bration catalogue, the mini banner punch!! Is that not the cutest punch you’ve ever seen!! I am hopeless at making the ends of banners even so this is perfect for me.
