Nature's Harvest CTC#370

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

To CASE is to Copy And Selectively Edit or to Copy And Share Everything, and we love to CASE from our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues.  Make sure you keep hopping to see everyone's fabulous projects!!  

This week, we are CASEING from the Bundles Chapter of the Mini Catalogue - pages 75 to 83.

I was inspired by the very first page of the chapter!!  I wanted to try the fun White Wash technique and the Nature's Harvest stamp set and layout worked perfectly!!  I just changed some of the colours.  

The flowers were stamped in Cherry Cobbler onto Sweet Sorbet cardstock (one of our new In Colours) and then I coloured the petals of the daisies using White Ink and a blender pen.  It dries a little lighter than the white ink, and so created lovely pink flowers!!  The die cut blooms from the Harvest Dies were cut from the fun pink shimmer paper which worked perfectly with the metallic Sweet Sorbet ribbon!

Inside the card, I've stamped the smaller flower image from this gorgeous Nature's Harvest stamp set using Sweet Sorbet.  It goes well with the Petal Pink card base I think!

The gorgeous Natures' Harvest bundle really worked perfectly!!  

UP next is the amazing Michelle.

Scrapbooking Global blog hop - MAP!!

Hello and Welcome to our monthly awesome Scrapbooking Blog Hop!!!  

This is a group of amazing international creatives who use Stampin' Up! products to do some fabulous scrapbooking.  

This month we have the fabulous Sharon who designed our challenge with the theme MAP.

Sooooooo, I've used the map piece of vellum from the Printed Vellum pack to scrap the end of our son's study 'journey' - a very tenuous theme to Map!

To supplement this fabulous paper, I've also used a bunch of supplies from the He's The Man Suite.  

I've used the He's The Man designer paper for some of the great embellishments on the page, as well as the piece underneath the vellum.  It's a bit hard to see, but it has a great textured design in Sahara Sand that looks a little like hessian or burlap.  

I've also used a bunch of great die cuts from the All That dies (also from this Suite) including the flag ends, the fun die cut argyle pattern, and the great scalloped circle for the stamped compass rose.

The tile was created using the marvellous Alphabest Bundle of the Alphabest stamp set and coordinating Best Label punch.  This was a bunch of fun!!  

The compass rose near the journalling panel (check out that AWESOME die cut from the He's the Man designer paper!) was stamped twice.  I then fussy cut the compass points from the piece stamped on Pacific Point and pieced it onto the original with the finishing touch of a rustic metallic dot.  

Make sure you check out this He's the Man suite!!  It's so versatile.  
My previous post for today also features this great suite!

UP next is the extraordinarily talented Sharni.

Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop - He's the Man!

Hello and Welcome to our fun Monthly Blog Hop!!  This month, this amazing group of international crafters are sharing some Masculine Inspiration with you!!!  Make sure you hop all the way around to see lots of great ideas!!  

Sometimes masculine cards can be a bit tricky, BUT, the He's the Man Suite in our new catalogue has it ALL covered!!  The great He's All That stamp set has images and greetings which suite lots of different interests, and the All That dies are so much fun with banners, labels and some fun textured pieces!!  

This card is actually one of the cards for our Masking class coming up next week - so the background detail was created using our new masking paper and blending brushes for some fun extra colour!! The colours are Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake and Pale Papaya.  After I created the masked stripes, I then die cut the little images from my panel and put them back onto the card using dimensionals!!  It looks great!  All of the Early Espresso stamped images come from the great stamp set and are fussy cut or die cut.  

The inside of the card features another masked image (I used a mask to stamp the image with out the words included), and has the exact same layout of the front of the card using the great He's the Man designer paper.

The finishing touch is some rustic metallic dots (for the extra masculine touch!!)

UP next is the amazing Krissi .  Make sure you keep hopping to see all the awesomeness!!  

Here' the list of everyone in case you get lost along the way.

Fun with Blending Brushes CTC#369

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

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything and we love to CASE from our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues.  

This week, we are sharing our inspiration coming from a Blending Brushes project!!  There are a few pages with lots of different and great ideas!!  

2022 - 2023 Annual Catalogue pp38  all images  © Stampin' Up! 

I was inspired by the use of the die along with the blending brush for some colour in specific shapes! 

For my card featuring the lovely Nature's Prints bundle, I die cut a couple of the leaf shapes from the Natural Prints dies, and then used them as masks for my sponging with a blending brush.  

I stamped a bunch of the foliage images from the Natures Prints stamp set randomly around the card with the greeting stamped in the centre, using Pear Pizzazz, Evening Evergreen and Garden Green.  I then put the die cut mask over the stamped image and sponged the same colour over the top of the stamping to create a lovely shadow of colour.  

The inside of the card features the same detail while leaving a space to write a greeting!!  

My final touch was a couple of die cut edges using the lovely Delicate Edges dies in Shaded Spruce cardstock, as well as a couple of Faux Sea Glass Shapes.  
I do love green - so I love how this turned out!!  

Up next is the marvellous Michelle - check out her project!!

Please join in the fun with us and share your project onto our Facebook page here!  

You can create this card above in my Masking Class at the end of the month!!  Contact me for details!
