CASEing the Catty CTC470 – Colours of Frames & Flowers DSP

Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge, Header

Welcome to the Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge Blog Hop. For CTC470 we are CASEing the colours of the Frames & Flowers Designer Seriees Paper. This specialty paper pack is a 12″ x 12″ pack with 3 sheets of double sided paper and 3 sheets of paper with die-cut greenery elements.

There are several colours in this DSP, so picking a combination was fun. These are the colours in the images – Early Espresso, Garden Green, Granny Apple Green, Lost Lagoon, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock, Pumpkin Pie, Shaded Spruce, Soft Sea Foam.

Frames & Flowers Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up

Here’s what I ended up with.

I used the Enduring Beauty stamp set, masks and dies to create a focal image. The flowers were blended in Lost Lagoon. For the extra detail I added more colour to create a deeper shade.

The leaves were blended in Soft Sea Foam with a little bit of Garden Green at the bottom. The veins of the leaves were detailed with a touch of Shaded Spruce.

I used a strip of the Winter Meadow Designer Series Paper for the small panel on the right. This was embossed with the Distressed Tile Embossing Folder. On this I added some Pretty Peacock ink with a sponge dauber.

In my stash, I had a panel of Fluid 100 Cardstock which I had painted with Tuxedo Black ink refill using a Water Painter. I cut a thin strip of this and adhered it to some Basic White Cardstock. From this I die cut a label on which the sentiment was stamped.

I added a bird from the Something for Everything Ephemera Pack which I coloured with my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends. To complete the card I included some Petal Pink Foiled Gems. So, I ended up using 6 of the colours!

ESAD Stampin’ Up! 2024-2025 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) Blog Hop for the new 2024-2025 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. For my project today I am using the Country Birdhouse bundle which can be found from pages 48-51 of the catalogue and is part of the Country Woods mega suite.

I began the process for creating this card by stamping the birdhouse in Moody Mauve. This was watercoloured using several mauve shades and some Basic Bege for a neutral. The roof and base of the birdhouse was die cut from Fluid 100 Cardstock and individually watercoloured to achieve different effects.

The bird was stamped in Stazon ink and watercoloured in Highland Heather, Petal Pink and Basic Beige for the beak and feet.

On the matte layer I stamped the leaves from the Spotlight in Nature stamp set and coloured them in with Lemon Lime Twist, Light Old Olive and Light Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Blends. Additional leaves were die cut using the Stippled Roses dies from Basic White Cardstock and I blended the ends with Old Olive ink using a Blending Brush.

I filled in the leaves with die cut flowers which were cut out from Basic White and Pretty in Pink Cardstock. The White flowers were blended with Highland Heather and Petunia Pop ink to give variation.

Some Linen Thread, a heat embossed sentiment and shiny sequins finish off this card which was such a joy to create.

I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared today. Full list of products are available at the bottom of this post.

Monochromatic Azure Afternoon – Watercolor World

Happy Saturday! Welcome to another monochromatic Insta Hop with the Crafty Collaborations team. Today our feature colour is Azure Afternoon. I’ve taken to the skies with my card, inking up my new Watercolor World stamp set for a fun product combination.

I started off by inking the Watercolor World stamp with Smoky Slate and Azure Afternoon, using Sponge Daubers. Then I spritzed the stamped with water to create a more watercoloured effect, before stamping the image.

I die cut the circles and it so happened that I had cut my circles a little bit off centre. This became a design element on my card. I laid out all the circles for a fun pattern, mixing it with some Designer Series Paper strips. A small strip of White Cardstock was stamped with the clouds in Azure Afternoon to bring in another textured look.

The background was brayered with Smoky Slate by rolling the brayer in both directions to create a criss-cross pattern. To ‘tie’ it all in, I wove Silver ribbon under and through the circles which gave more detail and interest while bringing together all the patterns and textures.

I felt that it needed a focal image to draw the eye in, so I added the plane which was coloured in with a Blender Pen. Some Industrial Trinkets put a nice finishing touch to this card.

Any of these products are available in my Online Store or by getting in touch with me.
