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.

New at SU Blog Hop – Gorgeously Made

New at SU Header 2023-2024

Hello and welcome to our final New at SU blog hop for 2023. We have got a unique challenge this month. All our projects are focusing on Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake as a colour combo. We could add an extra colour if we liked and I chose Pecan Pie as my third colour which gave me an extra neutral colour to work with.

I’ve used the Gorgeouly Made bundle and I used just about every stamp set in there (bar a couple of sentiments). I stamped the leaves in both first and second generation Crumb Cake and added some horizontal stripes in Pecan Pie.

The focal leaf was die cut 4 times from Crumb Cake Cardstock. Then I added some ink blending in Crumb Cake to give it some shading (it does look like Pecan Pie but I promise it was Crumb Cake!).

To create the circle, I die cut a leaf from Very Vanilla Cardstock, adhered it to another piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock and then die cut the circle from it. This gave it a lovely textured look.

Ideally, I would have liked the sentiment to have been stamped directly onto the back panel but…I stuffed up and the stamp moved and it was a momentary disaster. So I had to put into action Plan B and cover up my mess with a die cut sentiment label! So some improvisation was required and I think it turned out ok.

Please make sure you take a look at all the inspiration our team has for you. Thank you for taking time to stop by my blog here in Melbourne. I hope you have a very happy Christmas and will see you for more New at SU inspiration in 2024.

New Home Welcome Card

This was a fun challenge (I think I always say that) but these colour palettes are making me really think outside the box. For Colour Palette #12 I created a ink blended background with Pumpkin Pie. This is a colour I don’t use very often and I really love how it turned out on this card.

By ink blending the background in Pumpkin Pie, then stamping the leaves and also adding a blended border, the various tones and texture in the same colour added depth to my card.

I’ve used the leaf from the Gorgeously Made bundle which has been used so much by me. This is one of my must-have products from the new catalogue.

I die cut a leaf from the Bright and Beautiful Designer Series Paper which straightaway gave it pattern and texture and really gave it an unexpected touch of colour which I love! Mossy Meadow is another colour I don’t use much and I love how it brings all the colours together on this card with this bold leaf.

A sweet little house from the Ringed with Nature stamp set fussy cut and layered makes this a warm welcome to give a new neighbour.

During out Designer Series Paper sale get a range of papers discounted at 15% during June, including the Bright & Beautiful DSP used in this card.

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.
