SUO Challenges with Tin Tile embossing folder & Frosted Floral DSP

Hello and welcome to Handmade by Julia Quinn and our great challenge for Stampin' Up! Only challenges  

We use only Stampin' Up! products in our projects and we love to inspire you with our fun challenges!  Our challenge this team is all about Teacher Appreciation and Back To School Gifts  

I've made a decor item as a teacher gift.  This lovely frame was featured on Karinspapercraft.blogspot.com and I've adapted it with some gorgeous new products available next month!!  The background was embossed with our new Tin Tile embossing folder and the frame was sponged with some Champagne Mist shimmer paint (awesome!!)  I've used the title from the Love What You Do stamp set - I think this is a sentiment we all need to have on our desk in front of us!!  

To coordinate with the frame, I've created a card using some more gorgeousness from our Holiday Catalogue which goes live to you from 5th September.  I love being a demonstrator and getting to play with new products early!!

I've used the delicious Frosted Floral DSP (it's shimmery!!!!) for the background of the front and the inside panel shows off the reverse of the piece of paper.  

 I'm not sure what this fold is called for this card, but it's super fun.  I found it following Ronda Wade. 

I hope you've been inspired by my idea for a teachers gift - we really should thank them everyday for the amazing job they do with our children and the future of our world!!

Make sure you head to our blog to see the awesomeness from everyone on the team!!  Then you can add your project to our lineup on our blog.  We love to see you there!!

Until Next Time,
Happy Stamping,
Love Julia   x

Scrapbooking inspired by Natures Poem CTC#191

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night CASEING the CATTY Blog Hop.

We are a design team focusing on the amazing projects illustrated in our Stampin' Up! catalogues as we Copy And Selectively Edit or Copy And Share Everything to inspire you to see the catalogue in new ways!!  

Image may contain: text

This week we are sharing inspiration from the Nature's Poem chapter - pages 142-153 of the Annual Catalogue.  

I've been totally inspired by the whole Nature's Poem suite, and I've CASED 3 projects from pages 142 and 144.

Every now and then, I make a real effort to get some scrap pages done... and these next couple of weeks will feature the results!!!  

My first piece of inspiration was this gorgeous card from page 144.  My page element is very close with only the difference in the ribbon/twine and the sequins/faceted dots.  

Until I really looked at this card in the catalogue, I didn't realise there was so much to it!!!

My second page element is this lovely card which I have CASED before.  I love all the layers and papers.  

The colours for my page are:  Tranquil Tide, Sahara Sand and Petal Pink.

My last element was CASED from the little pizza box at the bottom left of the photo on page 142.

I'm so pleased with the finished result!!   It'a bit hard to tell in the photos, but I've also swooshed across the Sahara Sand base using the Whisper White ink pad giving some subtle highlights.  

Make sure you hop around the whole team and see the amazing inspiration from this chapter!!

We'd love to see your projects in the lineup on our facebook challenge page, and you can get there using this link.  


Until Next Time,
Happy Stamping,
Love Julia   x

No automatic alt text available.

We are featuring the Subtle colour family this time - and you get to choose any 3 colours to create your project and join in the fun with our challenge.

I'm also featuring the gorgeous exclusive bundle for this month - Blended Seasons.  
Blended Seasons Clear-Mount Stamp SetStitched Seasons Framelits Dies

It's only available while stocks last, and it has some really great elements!!  I've used the largest framelit for my greeting, the sweet leaf die and the beautiful floral spray which I've coloured using Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends.

The beautiful pearls and dotty tulle ribbon are a sweet finishing touch, along with the upside down quilt top embossing folder for the background.  

I've stamped my greeting on a piece of Tropical Escape DSP (one of my purchases in the DSP sale last month!! YAY!!)  I also used the Calypso Coral ink to stamp the outline of the flowers - which blends in beautifully with the colouring to create a more arty look!!


Now it's time for you to keep hopping around the team - I'm amazed at the variety and brilliance of the contributions of everyone just using 3 colours from the Subtle family!!!

Please join in the fun too!  You can add your project using only 3 colours from the Subtles family to our lineup here on our facebook challenge page!!

Until Next Time,
Happy Stamping,
