Here we are with another Sunday CASEing the Catty hop for you. I really love doing these and enjoy the challenge each week to really study the catalogue and work out what to case.
This week, we are casing the Urban Underground section, from pages 46-49 of the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.
I don’t have any of the sets in this section, although I did buy the hexagon embossing folder, which I love!! I was running a bit short of time to create a card this week (knew I should have done it last week when I had heaps of time!!), so I decided to case the superhero card on page 49.
I really love the block layout of this card. I decided to use the Balloon Adventures stamp set and the gorgeous SAB Carried Away DSP. Did you know that on the back of the DSP packet, it lists all the co-ordinating colours used? That way there is no guessing as to which colours were used. I went with a Night of Navy base and then used Smoky Slate ink for the sentiment. I was going to stamp and cut out a balloon but the DSP is just so nice, I decided to let it speak for itself. This was a really quick card to make so great for when you have to make a last minute card.
Time is running out to earn your favourite sale-a-bration products, so place your qualifying $90 order with me today. Here’s a link to my online store. Don’t forget SAB ends on 31 March!

Stampin’ Up! Product List
I’m excited that it’s the first challenge of the Colour INKspiration tonight!! We are a group of Australian and New Zealand Stampin’ Up! demonstrators that love to create projects based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches.
Our first challenge is to use at least 3 of the following colours, Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Mint Maccaron, Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach and Blushing Bride.
These colours remind me of birthday parties. So I decided to use the new Balloon Adventures stamp set and the co-ordinating Balloon Pop-Up thinlits. I love to make shaker cards so birthdays are perfect!
I stamped the confetti on the base of the card stock and then created the shaker using the thinlits. I punched out the sprinkles for the inside of the shaker using the Sprinkles punch. I did pick out the large pieces as I didn’t want it to be too chunky. I also put a strip of foam adhesive strips underneath the party on sentiment so that all the sprinkles wouldn’t end up down the bottom.
Next on the hop is my lovely friend, Rose Packer.
Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 7 pm (AEDT), a new colour swatch will be uploaded to the Facebook Colour INKspiration Group and the Colour INKspiration Crew will get the ball rolling by providing inspiration for each challenge with a blog hop.
Members of the group have the option to join the Colour INKspiration ‘Challenge’ by uploading photos of their projects and can link back to their personal blog if they wish to.
