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!

CASEing the Catty CTC469 – Mix & Match Section

Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge, Header

Hello Friends, Welcome to Stamping Flair. I hope you have had an enjoyable Mother’s Day. It’s our weekly CASEing the Catty Challenge blog hop and for CTC469 we are CASEing the Mix & Match pages from the Stampin’ Up! 2024-2025 Annual Catalogue.

CASE – Copy and Share Everything or Copy and Selectively Edit.

Caseing the Catty CTC469, CASE the Mix & Max section from the 2024-2025 Annual Catalogue

The Mix & Match section includes Ephemera Packs and Cards & Envelope Packs. These are designed to provide you with simplified options for customising your projects.

I’ve CASEd the this project from Page 21 of the catalogue. The arrangement of the sentiment is in a triangular shape and my design took it’s inspiration from that.

I started off by die cutting a triangle using the 2 largesr Deckled Rectangles. This was embossed with the Fun Patterns Embossing Folder.

This is the first card I’ve created with the Zinnias bundle and the images are lovely to colour in. I used Stampin’ Blends for this image.

  • Flowers – Pretty in Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Petunia Pop, Fresh Freesia
  • Flower Centres – Daffodil Delight
  • Leaves – Pool Party, Lost Lagoon

I added some elements from the Spotlight In Nature bundle including the circle and butterfly. I inked up the texture image in Petunia Pop and then spritzed it with water before to stamping. I love the watercolour effect that this gives. The butterfly was blended with Pretty in Pink ink, with some details added with the Daffodil Delight Watercolour Pencil.

The card base is a tent fold as a felt the design lent itself to that and on the bottom of it I blended Petunia Pop ink. This added some depth under my focal image. I couldn’t resist adding the butterfly from this stamp set for a sweet touch.

Thank you for stopping by today. A full list of products used can be found at the end of this post. Next on our hop is Rebecca Scurr. Follow our hop through for lots of fun ideas.

Monochromatic Poppy Parade – Embossing with Stencils

Welcome to the weekend friend, Today I have a clean and elegant card using a rather bright colour for our Monochromatic Insta Hop challenge. This week’s featured colour is Poppy Parade. With the colour being so bright I went with adding it in small doses – so to speak.

I created a frame and added a panel of Basic White Cardstock which had been embossed in the centre with a mask from the Foursquare Decorative Masks.

HOW TO DRY EMBOSS WITH A MASK/STENCIL

I’d seen a fun technique and though I’d give it a try for this card. Have you every tried dry embossing with your Masks or Stencils? It’s so easy to do.

Use the same sandwich you would do like you would do for die cutting. You may need to add a shim depending on the calibration of your machine ie: if it doesn’t feel like there’s enough resistance to apply the image of the mask onto the paper.

I die cut a small section with the Elegant Borders dies and added to the bottom of the card for a decorative border. Another one of the border dies was used to blend through to create the little pattern on the butterflies.

The sprig was die cut 3 times from White Cardstock and layered together to add depth as well as making it more stable. I added the Linen Thread and the Cork embellishments to help create a more natural look and thereby toning down the Poppy Parade. The simplicity of this card made it fitting for a Thinking of You sentiment working well with the minimal colours.

I hope you try out embossing with your stencils to see what fun backgrounds you will create.

Monochromatic Tahitian Tide – Magnolia Mood bundle

Welcome to another Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Challenge. This week we are focussing on Tahitian Tide. Just a fwe days ago I received some new products from the Online Exclusives collection which will be released on 5th March. So I chose to use some of these on today’s card.

I generally like to pair a neutral colour with the featured colour when I’m creating for these monochromatic challenges. Black just seemed a little harsh with the idea I had in mind and I ended up choosing Night of Navy as what I call a ‘support’ colour!

I started off with the 3 squares and stamped the Drizzling Droplets background stamp on the smaller squares. This is one of the new products you can order on the 5th. Against the central embossed square, the small dots brought a touch of softness to the layout.

For my featured image I used the Magnolia Mood bundle. I didn’t quite like the floral image that was attached to the stamped leaves so I just trimmed that out and added a different die cut on top. The Tahitian Tide flower is an outline and I glued this onto Night of Navy Cardstock and fussy cut around it to give me a two-tone flower.

A product list is at the bottom of this post to help you place your order. I will update it on the 5th of March to include the new products.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Grateful for You – Inspirational Sketches #gdp430

Hello everyone, Welcome to a new week. I love the colour palette of today’s card. I didn’t set out to create with this but it just turned out this way and I love the beautiful, beachy tones of this that I’ll probably be using it again.

Inspired by the sketch at Global Design Project Challenges I used the bird from the Inspirational Sketches stamp set as my main image. This stamp set is just my style and I love the artistic look of it.

This sketch is a really classic layout and the offset design lends itself to so many interpretations.

STAMPED BIRD

After picking my Designer Series Paper, I then chose my stamp set. The bird was inked up in Boho Blue then I wiped off the beak, feet and branches with a paper towel and added the Crumb Cake Marker to it before stamping the image. This iwas then coloured in Watercolour Pencils of Coastal Cabana, Balmy Blue, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Basic Gray.

Stampin' Up!, Inspirational Sketches stamp set, Global Design Project Challenges #gdp430, Stippled Roses Dies, Thank you Card, Poetic Expressions DSP, Card sketch, Card layout, Colouring with Watercolour Pencils
OFFSET PANELS

To create the offset panels, I cut a piece of Poetic Expressions Designer Series Paper at 13.3 cm x 9.0 cm. I added a die cut Deckled Rectangle on top which was embossed with the Timeworn Type Embossing Folder.

Banners die cut using the All That dies were embellished with some flowers die cut from the Kraft Note Cards. The natural tones of the Kraft work well against the Boho Blue. A Linen Thread bow added the perfect finishing touch.

Monochromatic Pebbled Path – Stippled Roses

Happy Saturday friends, It’s early hours of the morning when this post goes Live in Melbourne. Thank you for stopping by to check out my inspiration for our Monochromatic Instagram hop this week. Although the hop is on Instagram I like to share the details of my card on my blog.

Today we are sharing projects using my favourite In-Color in our range at the moment, Pebbled Path. It’s not brown nor is it grey. It’s just right!

I have chosen the Stippled Roses bundle to create some detail on my card with some black accents.

The card sketch I’m following is from the Inspire Create Stamping Challenges #160.

Inspire Create Stamping Challenges #160, Card sketch, Card layout

I started by creating the 2 even panels. To create this, I stamped the large leaf from the Stippled Roses stamp set in Versamark ink onto Pebbled Path Cardstock. This was heat embossed in Black. Then I cut the Cardstock into 2 panels which were blended around the edges with Pebbled Path ink.

A ribbon was added at the back of the 2 panels to depict the strip on the card sketch.

On the base of the card I added a layer of the Softly Stippled Designer Series Paper. This Designer Series Paper is 12″x12″ and you get 12 doubled sided sheets in each pack (2 sheets of 6 designs). You can get this paper free with a $90 order during our Sale-A-Bration promotion which runs through 29th February.

I kept this card simple and elegant with a single rose stamped in Pebbled Path. I layered the flower and leaves, fussy cutting around them. Some additional die cut leaves in Pebbled Path were interspersed to layer on the flower and the die cut sentiment.
