Caseing the Catty CTC465 – Earthen Textures with Country Flowers

I’ve created a card for the Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge where this week’s challenge was to CASE our favourite retiring punch project from either the 2023-2024 Annual or 2024 Jan-April Mini Catalogue.

I’ve chosen this card from Page 53 of our Annual Catalogue which features the Little Monkey punch. I have CASEd the sketch of the card, flipping it for a portrait layout. I’ve mixed some old and new products using the outgoing Earthen Textures and new Country Flowers bundles for the focal image.

The dainty oval at the back of the vase is from the Unbounded Beauty dies which is another new product. I die cut this from Textured Shimmer Cardstock which I blended with Bubble Bath ink. This specialty paper is my favourite and I’m sad to see it go. You can get a pack during our Last Chance sale for just $8.75 (reduced from $17.50).

On the oval I stamped the script image from the Gorgeously Made stamp set. Although this is very faint, it gives a lovely mottled image on this piece.

I embellished the sentiment with a Smoky Slate border, die cut using part of the birdhouse from the Country Birdhouse dies.

You can shop the products used to create this card in my Online Store. New products will be available on 1st May or you can add it to a Starter Kit today. The Little Monkey stamp and punch has been discounted during our Last Chance SALE which ends 30th April.

Monochromatic Daffodil Delight – Country Flowers

It’s a bright and cheerful good morning from Melbourne as the Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Insta Hop share inspiration with Daffodil Delight. Part of our Brights collection, Daffodil Delight is a colour that can just lift your spirts. Its just such a ‘happy’ colour.

Monochromatic Instahop, Crafty Collaborations, Daffodil Delight

The pot and flowers are from the new Country Flowers bundle in our Stampin’ Up! 2024-2025 Annual Catalogue. It’s one of my favourites. I’m sure you can tell by the amount I’ve used it already! I coloured the pot with Stampin’ Blends and Watercolour Pencils to achieve a lovely blended look.

BACKGROUND

I wanted to create a bit of a funky background with some masking. As I didn’t have any masks with the shape that I actually wanted nor did I have a die that worked, I set out to make my own shape using the guitar die from the Rocck Star bundle. I die cut the guitar out of a 1/4 sheet of Cardstock. Then I placed it over the die cut hole and cut into the Cardstock again to form a larger hole with a more fluid shape.

Moving this mask around the page, I was able to create the fun background. I added some dots with the circle stamp from the Planted Paradise stamp set. For some delicate detail, I used the circles from the Stylish Shapes along with a Black Stampin’ Write Marker to create dashes and spots along the bottom right.

Behind the flowers I added the plectrum from the Rock Star dies and embossed it with the Eyelet Embossing Folder which is also part of the Country Flowers suite. I just love this unusual shape and the interest it adds against these flowers.

I hope you have enjoyed my creation with Daffodil Delight. Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter for lots more inspiration each week.

AWOW Blog Hop – This or That Country Flowers

This or That? I wonder what you will pick in our challenge today? It’s the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop (AWOW for short) and this month we are sharing not just 1 but 2 projects with our This or That April challenge.

Awow Blog Hop, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Header

It could be different orientations of the same layout, perhaps different colours, alternate Designer Series Papers, different colouring mediums – the possibilities are endless. I’ve chosen the new Country Flowers bundle from the upcoming 2024-2025 Annual Catalogue for my This or That projects and went with varied interior decor styles.

We need YOU to participate today by commenting and letting us know whether you pick This or That!

THIS – SHABBY CHIC

For my first project I went with a shabby chic style with soft pinks and white. I used Watercolour Pencils to colour in my image.

Of course there had to be a doily in there for a beautiful country look. On top of that I added some Cardstock which I had treated with Embossing Paste I coloured with Pretty in Pink. First I applied a layer with a Palette Knife and then I added more paste through a mask. Once it dried I used my finger to dab on a little more ink over the panel. This was then torn to create a rustic look.

THAT – COASTAL

When I saw this particular background I immediately though of the beach. I’ve kept the layout the same as the previous card. Alternating the leaves for the flowers fit the coastal vibe and colours.

Along with the Country Woods Designer Series Paper, I’ve also used the new So Swirly Embossing Folder. Keep an eye out for this Embossing Folder in the new releases. It’s a large 6″ x 8 1/2″ (15.2 x 21.6 cm). I added the surfboard and life buoy from the Beach Day bundle for an extra beachy feel.

I will be recreating this particular card on my FB Live tonight at 7:30 AEST. Replay will also be available on YouTube later on today.

Now, it’s your turn to let me know what your favourite is. I can’t wait to hear your selection. As for me, I don’t know what my favourite is 😂 as I really enjoyed creating them both.

Thank you so much for stopping by my corner of the world in Melbourne. I hope you enjoy all the beautiful inspiration you are going to be treated to today as you travel Around the World with us.

Next on our hop is my friend Cheryll Miller and I know she will have something amazing to share with you.
