CTC290 Paper colour Inspiration

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.  

This week, we are CASEING from the colours of the Plaid Tidings paper which is:  Cherry Cobbler, Melon Mambo, Blackberry Bliss, Shaded Spruce, Pretty Peacock, Bumblebee, and Pumpkin Pie

These colours work really well with my photos for this page.  I've used the Boho Indigo stamp set and the Jar of Flowers stamp set to show off all these colours.  I've also added  a few strips of the Plaid Tidings paper to continue the colour theme.  

Some of the jars are stamped onto vellum and some stamped directly onto the background paper.  

I think these two stamp sets work really well together to create the lovely clusters of flowers in vases!!  

The lovely Shaded Spruce leaves are cut using the Boho Indigo dies balancing out all these bright colours.  

Up next on our hop this week is the amazing Monique.

We'd love you to join the fun with us too!  It's easy to add your photo to our facebook challenge group.

Autumnal Colours for Colour INKspiration # 87

Hello and Welcome to another stunning colour combination for Colour INKspiration challenges.

The colours this time are Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand, Pear Pizzazz and Mango Melody - very Autumnal colours this time and ones that I just love together.  

I've used these colours for a sweet and totally feminine card.  I've coloured the gorgeous bouquet from Fancy Phrases stamp set using all the colours and the image was stamped using the Sahara Sand.  

I've added touches of gold to complement these warm colours.  

The lovely gold edged ribbon fits the card just perfectly!!  These lovely gems come from the Wonderful Gems featured in the Wonder of the Season Suite in the Mini Catalogue.  

Inside the card, I have repeated the Lace folder embossing using some gorgeous gold foil, and added a touch more ribbon and a stamped swag of the small bloom from the Fancy Phrases stamp set.

Halloween CASE #CTC289

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 which are full of inspiration!!

This week we are CASEING a Halloween project from our Mini Catalogue.  

I have been inspired by the super cute Clear Treat Boxes and the luxurious bows made from the wonderful Metallic Mesh ribbon which are on the far right of the image below. 

August - December 2020 Mini Catalogue  page 52  all images © Stampin' Up! ®

I have changed the way I've used the patterned paper a little as I don't have any contents to show off in my box yet, but I still think it looks so pretty.  

My paper is the gorgeous Feels Like Frost which has stunning photographic images on one side, and lovely silver foil images on the other.  I have scored the paper at 5 cm intervals, and it is folded into the inside of the Clear Treat Box and sits there perfectly.   

My greeting comes from the useful stamp set Wrapped In Christmas and I have wrapped the lovely Metallic Mesh ribbon around the lid of the box so that it can remain intact when the box is opened.  

Up next on our hop is the very talented Tina and her project for you.  Make sure you keep hopping all the way around to see lots of amazing projects and inspiration!!  

Our Blog Hop is also a challenge and we invite you to join in the challenge with us and share your creative project inspired by the Halloween sections of the Mini Catalogue.  It's easy to add your photo to our Facebook Challenge page, and you don't need to have a blog to join in the fun!!

Inspired by Kits CTC#288

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 which are packed full of inspiration.  

This week,we are caseing our KITS - and there are a few in both our Annual and Mini Catalogues.  

I have chosen to CASE the wonderful Joy of Sharing Christmas card kit from our Mini Catalogue.  I have a video of me making the cards from this kit here on my Facebook page.  

This Kit creates 15 wonderful cards suitable for adding photos, or they can be created to be a card only. Everything is supplied in the kit including ink spot, stamps, adhesives, all die cut images and envelopes.

So, my case for this gorgeous kit, is to use it for a Scrapbooking Page!!  My page is very similar to the finished cards in the kit and uses all of the elements supplied in the kit.  The ONLY extra element on my page is that I have used the gorgeous Christmas Layers dies with the piece of gold foil that pops out from the centre of the frame.  

I actually had a little debate with myself about whether to use these stamped words for a scrapbooking page, but I really love what they say, and thought they would work for our annual family Christmas photo!!  

I have added some extra stamping underneath all of the embellishment clusters to give extra depth and interest.  These lovely stamps of the pine cone, leaves and berries are included in the kit too.  

It's pretty rare that I create a Scrapbook page without having the photos ready to put on immediately. Now I'm totally ready as soon as we have Christmas!  I have left the frames on the page partially glued, so that I can slip the photos underneath easily.  

Make sure you keep hopping all around our brilliant blog hop to see lots more inspiration from all the kits in our Stampin' Up! catalogues.  

Up next is the talented Michelle and her CASE of the Boho Indigo Suite which is just gorgeous!!  

And now, after you've hopped through the whole team and been super inspired, start creating using our kits and inspiration, and then add your photo to the lineup on our Facebook Challenge page!!
