CASEing the Catty CTC477 – Colours of Wildly Flowering DSP

Hello and welcome to this week’s CASEing the Catty Challenge. For CTC477 the Crew are CASEing the colours of the Wildly Flowering Designer Series Paper. This DSP incorporates some In-Colors and Core colours from our range and includes Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Misty Moonlight, Moody Mauve, Mossy Meadow and Wild Wheat.

I’ve chosen these colours for my card and with the combination including Misty Moonlight, I wanted to create something using the Seaside Wishes bundle.

I started by embossing a piece of Basic White Cardstock with the Seaside Wishes Embossing Folder. Then I blended some Early Espresso on it and as I kept looking at this piece, wasn’t quite happy with the colour. So I added some Misty Moonlight over it. The way this turned out made me think under-the-sea and Little Mermaid and my card just went in that direction.

With a Palette Knife I added some Copper Enamel Effects on the embossed panel which I also spread around with my finger. I love how this looked.

On the card base I added a piece of Wildly Flowering DSP which has the tone-on-tone flowers and topped it with a panel of Wild Wheat embossed with the criss-cross Embossing Folder which is part of the Basics Pack in our Online Store. Three panels of Thoughtful Journey DSP, layered onto Misty Moonlight Cardstock provide the base for all my die cut pieces

The coral was die cut from the Thoughtful Journey DSP which provided a lovely textured look. I added some shells die cut from Oxidized Copper Specialty Designer Series Paper which coordinated with the Enamel Effects used on the base.

At this point I thought the shells were sufficient bling but I couldn’t help myself. To finish off my card I added some sequins coloured with the Dark Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blend. This added just a subtle amount of sparkle without detracting from the other elements.

I hope you have enjoyed my CASE this week. For a product list please scroll to the bottom of this post. Click on the Next button to follow through to Peta Stephen’s blog to see her beautiful project and follow through our hop for lots more inspiration.

CASEing the Catty CTC476 – Card Sketch

Welcome to the CASEing the Catty Challenge CTC476. Today our team are CASEing one of the sketches from Page 68 of the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and ironically it’s from the ‘Sketched’ Butterflies bundle.

I love sketches and they are my go-to as I start a project. There’s so many ways to interpret it and I’m looking forward to seeing what our team creates using this sketch.

I used the partial die cutting technique to replicate this sketch. I stamped and die cut the image from the Enduring Beauty stamp set. Placing only the section of the image that I wanted to cut out in the sandwich of the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, the other half of the image remains in tact.

Under this I layered a piece of Summer Splash Cardstock which gave a nice shadow effect for the sketch.

Instead of a banner I stamped the sentiment from the Everyday Greetings stamp set, directly onto the Cardstock. This stamp set will be available as part of our new Online Exclusives release on the 5thof July. With loads of sentiments in beautiful fonts, this is one you will want to add to your collection.

On the base, I added some Summer Splash Designer Series Paper from our 2024-2026 In-Color paper pack. On top of this, a piece of White Cardstock embossed with the Cute Crochet embossing folder adds subtle texture.

To complete the card I added some Opal Rounds coloured with the Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend and my favourite – Linen Thread.

CASEing the Catty Challenge CTC472 – Take to the Sky Suite

Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge, Header

Welcome to the Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge Blog Hop CTC472. Today’s challenge is to CASE a project from the Take to the Sky Suite in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. This suite was the first one I purchased from this catalogue. I loved that it was a masculine themed suite and i really liked the DSP which had some tags and individual images which could be used on projects.

Today, I’ve CASED a technique which is demonstrated on Page 36 of the catalogue with the repeated die cuts used to create an interesting background.

I used the Heartfelt Hexagon punch to create the background, punching out several shapes from Basic White Cardstock, Then I embossed them with the Layered Florals 3D Embossing Folder. These were adhered to a Basic White matte layer.

EMBOSSING FOLDER TECHNIQUE

To replicate the centre DSP panel in the original card, I added another embossed punched hegaxon on top. I coloured the background of this shape with the Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend. Then I coloured the flowers with Lemon Lime Twist and Peach Pie Stampin’ Blends adding some lighter shading with Granny Apple Green and Calypso Coral Watercolor Pencils.

Instead of having this as an inlaid panel, I mounted this on top of the shape underneath, adding Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it more depth.

The cake from the Attention Shoppers bundle was coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I felt this image looked a bit lost on it’s own so I added some flowers and leaves around it. The floweres were die cut from the Unbounded Beauty Designer Series Paper while the die cut leaves were lightly watercoloured in Lemon Lime Twist for an organic look.

A bow, coloured with the Dark Peach Pie Stampin’ Blend, brings my little cluster of elements together.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog. Next on our hop is my friend Rochelle Blok who will have some beautiful inspiration for you.

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.
