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.
