Inspired by Colour CTC#263 Week 1


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



To CASE is to Copy And Selectively Edit or to Copy And Share Everything and we love to CASE from the amazing array in our Stampin' Up! catalogues.

For the next two weeks, we are CASEING the colours of the Sale-a-bration Kerchief Card Kit - this is a really gorgeous card kit and just PERFECT for a quick project that feels creative and fun to do!!  



I've used the colours from the Blue card - they are:  Coastal Cabana, Early Espresso, Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Mossy Meadow and Gold Foil.  




I've used these colours as my starting point to make this fun Split Panel card featuring Forever Blossoms and Parisian Beauty stamp sets.  


These flowers from the Forever Blossoms set work perfectly with the Small Bloom Sale-a-bration punch!!  I've paired them with the leaf punch for some foliage. 


Inside the card uses a few more of the stamps in a little bit of collage stamping.  



Up next on our hop this week is the marvellous Siobhan.


We love having you join in the fun with our challenge - and it's super easy to add your photo to the lineup on our facebook challenge page!!

Colour INKspiration #71 Gorgeous Colouring


Hello and Welcome to our Colour INKspiration Challenge!!  



Our colours are inspired by some pretty amazing images, which are then converted to Stampin' Up! colours.


No photo description available.

Our Colours this time are: Highland Heather, Pool Party, Gray Granite and Pear Pizzazz. 





These colours have been my inspiration for some gorgeous colouring using Stampin' Blends.


I've used the Highland Heather Dark and Light Stampin' Blends, and the Light Pool Party Stampin' Blend.  The leaves are coloured using the Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write Marker.  The Gray Granite was used for the greetings from the lovely Woven Heirlooms stamp set.  


This card is a bit of an extended Z fold with the front panel being the same size as the card base.  


After I'd finished colouring, I added some Clear Wink of Stella to makes the flowers sparkle - along with a little pearl in the centre.  The flowers were outlines very softly with the Pool Party Stampin' Blend to make them POP from the page. 


This gorgeous floral image comes from the Forever Blossoms stamp set.  




You might be able to see the very soft stenciled brick work around the edges of the flowers too - I've used Pool Party ink, a sponge, the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and a very light touch.  


I hope you're inspired to have a go using these colours for our challenge too!!  Get creating and then add your photo to the lineup on our facebook challenge page gallery.

CTC#262 Valentines Day


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


To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE from our Stampin' Up! Catalogues.  

No photo description available.

This is our second week of challenge #262 with our sketch challenge inspired by page 34 of the Mini Catalogue. 

Image may contain: possible text that says 'Sentiment CASEING THE CATTY #262'

There are so many amazing ideas inspired by this sketch!  Did you see all the wonderful projects from the team last week?  Well this week will inspire you just as much!! Keep hopping around the whole team - so many gorgeous ideas!!




This week, I've created a Valentines Card using the Heart Punch Pack AND the coordinating From My Heart specialty designer series paper - there is lots of gorgeous foil accents on the paper - YUM!


The 3 panel sketch was created by making windows into a piece of Champagne Foil using the Rectangle Stitched dies.  The panel was raised on dimensionals on top of some scraps of the Magnolia Lane papers that were loitering on my desk!!  


The greeting was stamped using Real Red Ink and the Forever Blossoms stamp set.  


The inside of the card is very simple - but still cute!!  


Up next is the wonderful Tina and her stunning card featuring the poppies!  Such a brilliant idea!!  


This week is the second week of our current challenge so make sure you get your photo into the gallery on our facebook page and join in the fun with us!!!
