Welcome to another fun week of Colour Inkspiration.
This challenge showcases a couple of the new In-colours, Terracotta Tile and Pretty Peacock and also Petal Pink and Blueberry Bushel.
As I was working out my project, I realised that one of the papers in the Noble Specialty DSP was in Blueberry Bushel. I haven’t used these papers yet so I was excited to get it out! I used it as my background and as my centre piece covered a large portion of it, I used a smaller rectangle die and cut out the middle so that I didn’t waste it.
I cut out a stitched rectangle in Petal Pink and I used the You are Simply Wonderful stamp from the Bloom and Grow stamp set. I used the stamparatus to stamp the image, moving the plate down one step at a time. I haven’t done this technique before but it’s so easy! I think my stamp club ladies will be learning something new this month.
I then stamped one of the floral images from the Bloom & Grow set, cut it out using the Budding Blooms die and coloured it using blender pens and the Terracotta Tile, Petal Pink and Pretty Peacock ink pads. I also covered the flowers with Wink of Stella. I added a strip of Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon and also a bow.
I’m really happy with how this card turned out! I hope you like it too.

This challenge will be running for three weeks, so make sure you share your creation with us at our Facebook group, here.
It’s so fun to play with the colours in our gorgeous Designer Series Papers!! This week, we are casing the colours from the Garden Lane DSP, being Garden Green, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White. You can also use the layouts from pages 36-38 and 40-41 as inspiration.
When I start with colour challenges, I get out a piece of cardstock in each of the colours and then play around with them to see which combo jumps out at me. What also jumped out of my cardstock was a piece of Mint Macaron embossed with the Tufted embossing folder so that seemed liked a good place to start!!
For my first card, I used Soft Sea Foam and Mint Macaron. I based my card on the layout from page 36, but it did evolve as I made the card. (I don’t plan out a card before I make it, it just kind of comes together!!)
I was going to add the large flower from the Band Together stamp set, which I embossed in copper on a piece of vellum, then fussy cut out. When I went to assemble the card, it looked better without the flower.
I also cut out a banner from the Detailed Bands die which match the stamp set. I did trim off the tabs at the sides. I also cut out the matching oval and embossed the sentiment in copper.
So I couldn’t waste the flower, so I created another card using a piece of the Garden Lane DSP, Garden Green and Pear Pizzazz.
I cut out the sentiment piece from the Detailed Bands die and cut off the side. I just stamped the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz ink. It needed a bow, so I used the Scalloped Lace trim.

Welcome to a fun week at Caseing the Catty. This week, we are casing a layout from page 151.
So there are five projects on this page to choose from. I went with the card on the top right with the horse on it.
This is such a versatile layout. I’m on a Bird Ballad DSP roll at the moment and so I went with one piece on the left and then stamped the flowers and leaves on the right. I added a piece of linen ribbon and tied a bow with the Mossy Meadow linen thread which are both from the Magnolia Lane ribbon combo pack.
I stamped the sentiment in Pool Party and punched it out using the Story Label punch.
I was on a roll with this layout so I made another one with the Magnolia Lane DSP and the Magnolia Blooms stamp set from the Experience Creativity brochure. I used the Timeless Label punch for this one.
Next up is the lovely Judy. I can’t wait to see her stunning creation.
Come and share your creation with us over on at our Facebook group.
I’ve been busy preparing for my next class and I decided it was time to have a play! I haven’t made a fancy fold card for a while so I had a quick browse of Addinktive Designs and went with an oldie but a goodie, the Z Fold box card.
I used the Well Written dies, Thanks as it went with the sentiment from Good Morning Magnolia. I also cut out a few leaves in Mossy Meadow. I was going to stamp and colour the flowers but then I realised that the flower die not only matches the stamp, it matches the DSP!! woo hoo!!
I then stamped the larger flower from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set and fussy cut it out. I used a black marker and coloured the edges to match the other flowers.

Welcome to another week of Caseing the Catty. It’s a wonderful rainy day today, just perfect for crafting!! Who am I kidding, any weather is good for crafting!!
This week, we are casing the Love, Thanks & Support section, pages 72-97 of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue.
There’s lots of choose from! I didn’t get too far in and went with a card on page 79.
This layout is very easy to duplicate. I decided to use the Bird Ballad DSP instead of a stamped image as the birds on the paper are just too cute. (And I didn’t want to do any fussy cutting either!). I layered the dsp with Pool Party cardstock. I cut a frame using the Layering Squares dies in Daffodil Delight cardstock. I used the Foam Adhesive Strips to lift up the frame.
I cut a strip of vellum cardstock and used the Triple Banner punch to create a banner. I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay. The sentiment is from the Incredible Like You stamp set, which I discovered has retired after I had written my post!
I added a bow using the Scalloped Lace Trim which is just so pretty.
Next up is the lovely Tina. I can’t wait to see what she has created.
We would love to see your creation from this section. Just add it over on our Facebook page.
Welcome to another fun week of Caseing the Catty. We are casing the layout on page 159.
Did you know about Stampin’ Up!’s angel policy? If you sell your cards, you need to make sure they include one of the Stampin’ Up! copyright stamps. The Crafting Forever stamp set on page 159 does include this stamp.
It’s fun to see how each of the Crew members have interpreted this layout different! I have just received the Fable Friends stamp set and I had to use it straight away.
I turned the layout onto it’s side and selected a DSP for the background. I went with the Garden Lane DSP. I then cut out a Stitched Rectangle and stamped the little row of ducks in Memento Black. I stamped Mama duck on a separate piece of thick whisper white cardstock and fussy cut her out. I then coloured them all with blends. I used So Saffron, Seaside Spray, Granny Apple Green, Rococo Rose and Crumb Cake. I stamped the grass and sentiment in Pear Pizzazz.
This is such a cute stamp set and I love it!!
Next up is my lovely friend, Rose.
We would love see your case of this layout so make sure you sure your creation at our Facebook group.
