It's a Birthday Hop CTC#322


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 (Catty).


This week we are CASEING from the Birthday chapter of the catalogue.  


I was inspired by the cute little goat on page 64 and converted this great card layout to a tag - and made LOTS of them for the name tags for our Retreat Day yesterday.




I've copied the cute random angles for my greeting.  The main tag was created using the Tailor Made Tags dies.  The bottom area was for the names of all the attendees at the Retreat Day - and isn't the 'amazing' greeting just perfect!!  


I just LOOOOVE the sparkle of this great Incolour shimmery vellum.

Up next is the equally amazing Sandra and her GORGEOUS snails!!  

Please join in the fun with us and add your project to our Facebook challenge page here!!

Scrapping the colours CI#101


Hello and Welcome to another gorgeous colour combination for Colour INKspiration.


This fun challenge is inspired by gorgeous images, and then the colours converted to the amazing Stampin' Up! family.  


This week the colours are:  Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather, Balmy Blue and Evening Evergreen - with a gorgeous picture of a beachside sunset.  


These colours worked well for my sunset river photos.  


I've used the gorgeous Art in Bloom bundle for the stamping and a bunch of die cutting for the leaves and flowers.  


I have also used a couple of extra dies from the Iconic dies for more flowers and leaves.  


I've added some extra interest with the In Colour jewels and the super cute Loose Flower Flourishes.

Masculine Twist on a favourite!! CTC#321


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 amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues - CATTY. 


This week, we are CASEING a Layout from our soon to retire Mini Catalogue, and giving it a masculine twist.  


I was inspired by the layout of 2 different projects (and secretly was having so much fun, I just kept going!!)


My first project inspired by the front cover of the Mini Catalogue features the Layering Diorama dies, the Inspiring Canopy dies, Beautiful Trees dies and an image from the hostess stamp set Better Places.


I've coloured the scenery from Better Places using markers onto a piece of vellum and added that to the inside of my Diorama Card.  The measurements for the box shape for the card are:
Cardstock A4 length x 10 1/2 cm scored at 11cm, 14cm, 25cm, 28cm on the long side to create a box shape.  


I used the Diorama dies to create a window in the front, and added some of the Inspiring Canopy trees with shimmery vellum leaves.  The smaller inside tree was die cut using the Beautiful Trees dies.  This card folds flat to fit in a standard envelope.  


My second card features a very simple layout from page 60 of the Mini Catalogue.


I've used the Turtle Friends bundle for the detail, and the background was created using an image from the Seascape stamp set.


This card is a reverse easel card with the fun reveal when it stands up!


So, here's my two cards for the guys!!  What do you think?  

Up next is the awesome Tina and her bow tie!!

Please join in the fun with us by adding your project to the lineup here!

All Occasions CTC#320


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 (CATTY).


THis week, we are CASEING from the All Occasions Chapter of our New Catalogue.


I'm still at the gorgeous Seascape Bundle on page 12 of the Occasions chapter (last week, I CASED the other project featuring this bundle here)


My cards are very similar but very different!!  I've cased the layouts and the sponging on the die cuts for extra depth of colour but my cards have a white base and layering.  


I've added some texture to my seaweed, by embossing my stamped panel with the Bark embossing folder - love the watery effect from this folder!!  My greeting has been stamped onto a label punched using the Label Me Lovely Punch. I just looooove the addition of the gorgeous Opal rounds for bubbly texture!


Inside my card features more of the gorgeous images from the Seascape stamp set using Coastal Cabana and Mango Melody.  


My second card also features the Seascape stamp set and the gorgeous gold fish die cut from the Sea Life dies.  


Inside the card continues the theme from the front!  


I'm a huge fishy fan!!  So I love this gorgeous bundle - these Sea Life dies can be partially die cut as well to create fun 3D looks - but I've cut them entirely out for these cards.  

UP next is the amazing and talented Rebecca!!
