Thanksgiving theme for SUO Challenges

Hello and Welcome to our fabulous challenge for SUO Challenges using Stampin' Up! Only products.  The challenge this time is a Thanksgiving theme!!  You can see the amazing and beautiful projects from the design team if you head to our blog.  You'll also see the gorgeous winners from our last challenge celebrating the new Holiday Catalogue - thank you to all the fabulous entries - so many gifted and talented crafters!!

For the Thanksgiving challenge I've created a decor frame using some totally divine Joyous Noel DSP which has some glorious Copper Foil on EVERY piece of DSP!! 

I've used the wonderful Country Home stamp set embossed with Copper and added a couple of Copper shimmery die cuts for the edges.  

You can see the pattern for the frame here
 My measurements were in 3/4 " increments on a 12" x 12" sheet of DSP. 

I hope you go and see all the amazing projects from the team, and I hope you join in the fun too!!

Until Next Time,
Happy Stamping,
Love Julia   x

Cover Inspiration CTC#201

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

We have some amazing projects to inspire you and to challenge you to look at our Stampin' Up! catalogues and use them to create some fabulous projects as we Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit from the great projects illustrated. 

No automatic alt text available.

This week, we are sharing projects inspired by the front and back cover of our Holiday Catalogue.  My project has been inspired by the lovely tree card on the back page and more specifically, the amazing Festive Farmhouse DSP.

I've copied the same flag detail at the base of my first piece of DSP, and then used the greeting panel to inspire my card too.  

I've coloured the back of a pearlised doily to create the lovely scallops.

There are so many wonderful designs of this DSP, that I really had to make more cards!!

To keep my cards really quick and simple I've used the awesome Gold Foil and Silver Foil edged cards and envelopes - they really create a gorgeous finish to the cards!!

The stamp set featured is the fabulous Punch and stamp Tin Kit of Christmas Traditions.  

Up next is the amazing Rachel and her Cover project!!

We'd love to see your projects for our challenge on the facebook page - just add your photo!!

Until Next Time,
Happy Stamping,
Love Julia   x

It's the last chapter for CTC#200

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge.

We are the CASEING the CATTY team, and we like to challenge you to use the Stampin' Up! catalogues as inspiration to create your own projects as you Copy And Selectively Edit, or Copy And Share Everything from the Catalogues.  

No automatic alt text available.

This week, we are CASEING from the Toil and Trouble chapter of the 
Holiday Catalogue which is pages 48 - 55.

My inspiration this week comes from page 54 which features the Hostess Stamp Sets available in this catalogue.  I've CASED the gorgeous Thanks card from the top centre, and also the New Year card from the bottom right.  

I've changed the colours to Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay for my birthday card.  I've also used a NEW product that will be available to you in November!!  It's a gorgeous bunch of products from the Snowflake Showcase.  There are 2 stamp sets, a set of thinlits, some trinkets and some fabulous White Velvet  12" x 12" sheets of paper.  My card features some of the Snowfall Thinlit dies which have been paired with silver foil and some of the White Velvet Paper.  I coloured the White Velvet with Bermuda Bay and Pool Party Stampin' Blends to give it some multicoloured interest.  

The Happy Birthday comes from the Perennial Birthday stamp set, along with the Happy from the Merry Christmas thinlits. There's a little stamping from the Snow is Glistening stamp set (one of the new ones available in November!!)

My second card was inspired by the card on the bottom right.  I've Silver heat embossed one of the lovely greetings from Snow is Glistening and then used my aqua painter and navy ink to create a background wash.  I've then stamped over the top with those cute snowflakes again, and also on the base card.

My final addition was some of the Snowflake Thinlit dies cut out from the White Velvet Sheets.  

When I look at my card now, I kind of wished I'd stamped the greeting in Night of Navy rather than the Silver embossing - it seems to be a bit lost in the background wash.  

Up next is the amazingly talented Judy with some inspiration from the last chapter of our Holiday Catalogue.

We would love to have you join in the challenge with us too!  It's easy to add your project to our lineup on our facebook challenge page!!

Until Next Time,
Happy Stamping,
Love Julia   x
