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.

Thinking of You – Colour Palette #27

For the beautiful colours of Colour Palette #27 I went with the Earthen Textures bundle. I love being able to switch colours up with suites in the catalogue and give them a fresh look.

This card is quite minimalistic in that it has a lot of white space. I added some Embossing Paste for texture which creates a really pretty background for the simple vase and leaves.

Some added details such as a scalloped border creates extra layers and texture.

View the video below for all the details on how to create this card.

Earthen Textures Thank You – Colour Palette #20

Happy Sunday friends! Colour Palette #20 gave me a mediterranean feel and I waned to create a card with the look and textures that would encompass that theme.

The Earthen Elegance bundle made me think of markets. Perhaps it was something to do with me watching a production of Aladdin Jr. this past week,which my daughter Cassidy Stage Managed at her former school. I still have the songs, the detailed sets, the vibrant colours fresh in my memory.

The background panel was die cut with the largest Nested Essentials Dies, which I extended to form a larger die cut. Then I blended Cajun Craze ink using a Blending Brush so the panel was darker on one side fading to white.

Using the larger label shape from the Artistic Mix Decorative Mask I blended Cajun Craze and Wild Wheat over the die cut panel. This created an unusual abstract pattern.

I created a variety of leaves to add depth, texture and interest to the card. The fern was die cut from Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper and blended with Cajun Craze ink. I use this technique often as I like the texture that is already provided in the DSP. The smaller leaves were die cut from Basic White Cardstock using the Gorgeously Made dies and coloured with Lost Lagoon ink. This felt a bit stark so I sponged in some Cajun Craze to tone it in with the rest of the card.

Another set of leaves die cut from Distressed Gold Paper adds just a touch of opulence into this card. This works really well with Wild Wheat which has a gold tone to it (check out the image below).

When there is a lot of pattern and colours, a black sentiment panel brings it all together with a heat embossed sentiment.

New at SU Blog Hop – In-Color with Core Colors

Hello and welcome to this month’s New at SU blog hop where it’s all about the new Stampin’ Up! colours. We have a beautiful new range to play with including the 2023-2025 In-Colors and the new core colours from the colour refresh.

I’ve picked my favourite new In-Color, Pebbled Path, as my base and have added a couple of more In-Colors, Moody Mauve and Wild Wheat and a new core colour, Bubble Bath.

I generally start with one product and then work around it. For this project I chose the Earthen Textures bundle and began with an embossed piece of Basic White Cardstock using one of the detailed dies in the bundle. I then stamped over it with the script from the Gorgeously Made stamp set in Bubble Bath which created a fun background.

The vase was stamped in Pebbled Path on Basic White Cardsttock. Then I blended Wild Wheat over it, adding some detail with the Wild Wheat Stampin’ Blends.

I’ve used a small strip of the new White Center Specialty Paper which I’ve coloured with the Moody Mauve Stampin’ Blends to coordinate with the leaves. What’s special about this cardstock is that when you rip it the core is white. This differs to our regular cardstock which is dyed right through with colour.

I’ve used the sketch at TGIF Challenges as inspiration for this card.

As my chosen colour was Pebbled Path, I really wanted to highlight it. I added a Nested Essentials die cut from the Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper and a small strip of Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper which added a nice textured look. Some masking and layers of Pebbled Path Cardstock really show how pretty this colour is. I love it! Can you tell?

Thank you for stopping by and visiting me in Melbourne. Follow our blog hop through for lots of inspiration using our brand new colours. You may just find your favourite colour combo too.

If you live in Australia and currently don’t have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would value the opportunity to help you with a catalogue, place an order, learn more about classes, information about the Starter Kit or anything else.
