Colour Inkspiration #6 Medallions



Hello and Welcome to our Colour Inkspiration Blog Hop!


Twice a month we inspire you to join our Colour Challenge with amazing images from pinterest using our fabulous Stampin' Up! colours.

No automatic alt text available.

This week we are creating with:
Night of Navy, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, and Gold



My lovely lovely Sale-a-bration tin was calling to me for some embellishment, sooooooo I've used another AWESOME  Sale-a-bration stamp set: Make a Medallion to tart up the tin!!

The Medallions were stamped with Night of Navy first, and then the quiet Pool Party with some colouring of the medallion using the Gold Wink of Stella pen - which coordinates PERFECTLY with the tin!!  

I've used the Calypso Coral for the Large Letters framelits, but they look very very bright - this is because they are covered with some fine tip glue pen to make them shiny and glossy!!


I sincerely hope you've been inspired!  
(And maybe you can decorate your card tin too!)

Next up on the hop is the amazing work of Mel.


Please, join in the fun with our Colour Challenge.  You can find our facebook Challenge Page here and add your projects in too!!  We'd love to see how you create using these colours.
You don't need to have a blog - simply photograph your project and add it to our gallery.



See you next week!!

Happy Stamping!

Cool Treats meets Urban Underground CTC#120


Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop where we Case the Catty (Copy and Selectively Edit) to inspire you and share the joy of using our Catalogues as a springboard for your ideas.

No automatic alt text available.

This week, we are in the Urban Underground chapter - pages 46 - 49


I've been inspired by this fun card on page 49.......
mainly because I received these gorgeous pieces of the Tasty Treats DSP at a Retreat Day, 
and I really wanted to show them off and have fun!!


I think this layout is just perfect for showing off lots of different designs of DSP.
I've used 3 different colours for the card base - but I think my favourite is the Watermelon Wonder - only 2 more months of this glorious colour - better get in quick to love and use it while I can!!
If you love it too, I'd advise getting some more cardstock now before stocks deplete very quickly  at the end of the Catalogue year.


I love the stamp set - Cool Treats, and the framelits - Frozen Treats just as much as the Tasty Treats paper - and they look just AMAZING together too!!
And as a bonus, you receive a 10% discount when you purchase the stamps and framelits as a bundle!



Now it's time for you to hop along and see Mel's gorgeous guy card.  There are some pretty special projects on our hop this week.




We love to have you join in the fun with us, and you can add your projects to our facebook Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge group by clicking on the link.

Happy Stamping!

Things that fly for SUO#170


Welcome to our challenge for SUO - where we use Stampin' Up! Only products.
This time we are celebrating things that fly!!


This is one of our cards for class this week, and it features the Lift Me Up stamp set with those gorgeous flying balloons as well as the wonderfully coordinating DSP Carried Away.
This great greeting has been highlighted by using a Stitched Shapes framelit.


I must confess I have absolutely loved this DSP with it's bright fun colours and marvellous images - it's such a great FREEBIE because there are 12 sheets of 6 double sided designs all 12" x 12".  It's hard to believe we have only the next 2 1/2 weeks left of Sale-a-bration and then we won't be able to get it anymore.  (sad face)

Here are a couple of my other cards featuring this glorious paper:

And this is my favourite.....


I really hope you've been inspired by our flying projects, and that you will join in the fun!
Click here to add your project to our challenge wall.  We love to see your projects!!


I'm on the team at SUO!

Happy Stamping!

Designer T-shirt CTC#119 Saleabration


Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop where we CASE the Catty (Copy and Selectively Edit), and then share with you, hoping you'll be inspired to join our challenge.!!

Image may contain: text

This week we are CASEing the Sale-a-bration Catalogue - pages 16-19.


And I have been inspired by the gift box on page 18.


My card is an easel card - I love the idea for an easel card - they are so much fun to display!


The design team who create the cards for our catalogue always do an amazing job, and so my card is almost identical to the gift box.  
 I've added in some Emerald Envy behind the central panel, and for the anchor for the easel.

Colour Inkspiration #5


Welcome to another FANTASTIC blog hop with the Colour INKspiration team!!


This time, we are celebrating the colours of:
Blushing Bride, Soft Sky, and Sahara Sand
(with a neutral if needed).

No automatic alt text available.
This week, I was asked to make a very special card for a very special lady
 - who just happens to love love love these glorious colours!!


I've paired Whisper White with our challenge colours this week.
Stamping has been done with Blushing Bride and Birthday Blossoms; 
and Delicate Details Sale-a-bration stamp with Sahara Sand at the top and bottom of the front panel.


The die cut embellishments come from the Flourish Thinlits and the So Detailed Thinlits.
Underneath those wonderful Large Numbers in the Blushing Bride glimmer paper is the lovely floral swag from the Floral Affection Embossing Folder.  I've used a Blushing Bride marker to colour a few of the flowers to highlight them.  


I sincerely hope you've been inspired by the awesome projects of the design team, and that you will join in the fun too.  If you click on the Next blog link you will continue on your hop and see the fabulous super cute Eater creation from Kathryn.


You can use the link below to head on over to our facebook page and add your photo of your project using these lovely colours!!

Bookcase Builder CTC#118



Hello and Welcome to another Sunday Night Blog Hop!!  We love having you here to enjoy our projects inspired by the Catalogues as we CASE the Catty each week.  
This week, I've used my inspiration to create another Scrapbook page.

Image may contain: text

We are CASEing the Cool Treats chapter - and this chapter has quite a few pages and awesome projects and ideas!!


If you follow me, you'll know that I LOVE the Builder Birdcage stamp set - and so I am totally inspired by the above card.......


This is the feature panel on my scrapbook page - I felt ever so artistic splodging away with some colours, water and an aquapainter!! 
 I've used Island Indigo and Mint Macaron here with Black Stazon Ink.
You'll notice the title has been created using another favourite - Brushwork Alphabet.


My page has also been inspired by the Bookcase Builder stamp set and the awesome shelves featured in the card below.


I've created my 'shelves' using the GORGEOUS NEW glimmer paper we have for the remainder of our Sale-a-bration extraordinary promotion 
(which ends at the end of the month - eek have you placed your order yet to redeem your favourite Sale-a-bration item?)


And these greetings from the Bookcase Builder stamp set are so so perfect for scrapping!!  I love them. 


So, here's my page with a few photos on it.  I've featured a couple of pieces of Blooms and Bliss DSP too - and that was the source for my colour choices........ along with desperately wanting to use the divine Mint Macaron and Bermuda Bay glimmer papers.


I hope you've been inspired once again by all the awesome projects in our hop!!  
Make sure you keep going all the way around - I'm sure you'll love it!!



Time now to hop onto Kelly's totally gorgeous card!!
