CTC257 – Kids & Babies

It’s only 24 more sleeps to go!!! I’m so excited, I love Christmas!! I’ve had a week off to do some Christmas shopping, crafting and baking!! Sadly I’m not having any more time off and am working over Christmas so I need to get stuff done now.

We are taking a break from Christmas cards and are casing the Kids & Babies section, pages 98-105 of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue.

There are lots of cute cards to choose from!. I’ve decided to case one of the cards on page 101 on the top right of the image

I love the look of the vellum Stitched Lace die so I decided to do the same. I used Rococo Rose cardstock for the background. The scalloped edge is die cut from the Seasonal Layers dies.

One of my craft ladies has been unwell, so I will be sending this card to her. I used the Healing Hugs stamp set with the flower fussy cut. You can’t see it properly but there is the large sentiment shape from the Roses Die in Seaside Spray. The small sentiment is also cut from the same dies. I added a twist of Seaside Spray metallic ribbon for a bit more texture. I did add Stella to the flower but it doesn’t photograph well.

Next up is my lovely friend, Julia.

We would love to see your creation casing this section, so please share it over on at our Facebook group.

CTC239 – Changing up a layout

Welcome back to another fun week of Caseing the Catty. I hope you have been enjoying the different challenges we have been trying out.

This week, we are casing one of the layouts on page 103 and changing up the theme. There are five stunning cards to choose from!

I chose to case the cute baby elephant card on the bottom right.

I haven’t used the Perennial Essence DSP yet (shock, horror, I know!!) It’s such gorgeous paper that it’s one of those that are really hard to cut up. But I bit the bullet and dived into my packet.

Instead of stamping on a piece of cardstock, I clear embossed one of the butterflies stamps from the Butterfly Gala stamp set on vellum. I then layered it on top of one of the pieces of DSP.

I cut out the sentiments pieces from Betailed Bands dies and stamped the sentiment from the Healing Hugs stamp set.

Unfortunately, it’s a bit hard to see the clear embossing on it. Here’s another angle.

I hope you like my version of this layout.

Next up is fellow kitty lover, Peta.

We would love to see how you case one of these layouts. Share your creation on our Facebook page.

I’m excited to be joining in with this week’s Colour INKspiration challenge!

Stampin’ Up! ® has just had a major colour revamp so to start off the new catalogue year at Colour INKspiration we’ve decided to feature a Colour Collection for the first challenge each month (2nd Wednesday) until we have showcased them all!

The second challenge in the month (4th Wednesday) will be a Pinterest inspired pic as per usual just to mix it up a bit. This month we are starting off with the NEUTRALS COLLECTION and you can choose any 3 colours from that range for your challenge project. We are also changing the rules about what else you can add to the mix; essentially just the Basics – Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Basic Black as well as metallics.

I really wanted to have a play with the new Stitched Labels framelits.  They are just lovely.  I love the dotty background one, so I used it three times to cover the Merry Merlot piece and add a bit of texture.

I cut out the large label in Sahara Sand and stamped it using the sentiment from the Healing Hugs stamp set.  And have you noticed the gorgeous flower?  Isn’t it amazing??  This stunning flower (in Merry Merlot) and leaves (in Mossy Meadow) are two of the new Disinktive stamps which stamp beautifully with the new style ink pads.

Now don’t tell anyone, but I actually used 4 colours from the Neutrals collection on this card!!  The base is Night of Navy, with Sahara Sand and Merry Merlot card stock.  When I stamped the flower, I realised that there was a matching set of leaves so I had to do them in Mossy Meadow.  Oops!!

Next up on the hop is the lovely Kim.
