I’m a little late to the party this week (Wednesday just crept up on me!!). At Colour Inkspiration, we have a stunning colour combination to share with you!

It’s Misty Moonlight, Rich Razzleberry, Gorgeous Grape, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White.

I always start off by getting a piece of cardstock out of each colour and seeing what moves me. I then look at my stamp sets and go from there. I thought I would use the Jar of Flowers stamp set. So I layered up my base using Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White and a piece of dsp from the 2020-2022 In colour DSP stack in Misty Moonlight, to add a bit of interest to the background.

In order to make the jar stand out, I cut out a piece of whisper white using my favourite dies, Stitched So Sweetly dies and punched out the jar in the middle using the Jar punch.

I then stamped the stems and flowers in Memento Black and cut them out by hand. I coloured the stems using a Pear Pizzazz marker and the flowers using a combo of blends and markers. Don’t you hate it when you find one of your markers has dried up halfway through colouring! I rubbed the end of the marker into the ink pad to get the flower finished!

The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings and I used the Banners Pick a Punch for the ends.

Make sure you check out our Facebook group to see the cards the other Design Team members have created using this colour combo. I have to say that they are stunning!!

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

Are you as excited as me?  The 2019 Occasions Catalogue starts today!!!

Oh and Happy New Year everyone!!  It seems like 2018 went past so fast!!  Do I really have to go back to work on Monday?

At least having the 2019 Occasions Catalogue to drool over will make it a bit better.  And of course, a new year means that it’s also Sale-a-bration time!  Every year, the goodies offered by Stampin’ Up! for free get better and better.  There’s stamps, paper, framelits, wooden embellishments, foil paper and more!!

For those who don’t know, Sale-a-bration runs from 3 January to 31 March and for every $90 you spend with me, you will be able to choose a free product from the Sale-a-bration catalogue.

Here’s a card that I made using the free Botanical Butterfly DSP.

Butterfly-1

All I’ve done is cut out the butterflies from the DSP and created the banner for the  sentiment using the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.  (I actually cased this card from the Stampin’ Success magazine that all Stampin’ Up! demonstrators receive) #demoperks

CTC180 – Favourite Retiring Project

ctc_header

I’ve been pretty busy over the last couple of weeks as I had my catalogue launch last weekend.  I know it’s a bit early but we’ve been invited to a wedding this weekend and next weekend, I’m going to China for a week with my sister! Fun times ahead!

It’s an exciting week for Stampin’ Up!  It’s the end of a catalogue but more excitingly it’s the start of a new one!!  On June 1, the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue will commence.  I’m still deciding what I “need” to get!

But, here at CTC we are doing our final case of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue and 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  We are sharing our favourite retiring projects from either catalogue.

As I had my catty launch last weekend, I’ve taken all my retired products out of my craft room and they are in an untidy pile in another room!!  So it was too hard to dig through and find my favourite retiring sets.

But, one of my favourite products from any catalogue is the stunning Designer Series Paper.  Every year, I can’t wait to see what pretty papers I need to have. Who am I kidding, I need them all!

I love the Fresh Florals DSP Stack from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue in the 2017-2019 In Colours.  Such pretty designs.

One stamp set that I’m sad to see go is Teeny Tiny Sentiments.  This is such a handy set with a sentiment for every occasion.  But never fear, there is another set to replace it, the Itty Bitty Greetings set.

I have cased this card on page 37.

It also showcases my favourite retiring floral set, Rose Wonder.  Love that set!

As we are going to a wedding today, I decided to create a wedding card.  So I used the Berry Burst floral page from the Fresh Florals DSP Stack.  Instead of the flower, I created a group of circles and stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.  I stamped off the ink to create the different shades.  I love the sentiment from the Petal Palette stamp set.  Perfect for a wedding!

I even stamped on the inside which you know I rarely do!  But it’s a special occasion!!

I hope you like my card today!  Please leave me some comments below and let me know!

Next up is my sweet friend, Rose.  I can’t wait to see what amazing creation she has done this week.
