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.

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop – Trusty Tools

Hi friends, For our Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop we are following a sketch by our Guest Designer Margaret Hammersley Spencer. This is my second blog hop today and I’m on a roll with the masculine themed projects. For this layout I’ve used the Trusty Tools bundle.

For the first time I created an 8″ x 8″ page adding the Fresh as a Daisy DSP and Tartan Foil DSP on my base. This might become a new favourite as I’m loving the more condensed version where I can still preserve memories in a more compact way.

I coloured in some tools with Stampin’ Blends and the tool box was blended in Sweet Sorbet using a Blending Brush. I added a few little additions with some leftover Silver Foil I had. Silver Foil is making a much anticipated return in the 2024-2025 Annual Catalogue which is sure to please everyone.

My sentiment was added directly onto the tool box for a personalised touch. This would make a great gift for Father’s Day with some pictures of Dad added in those frames.

Each week my newsletter subscribers receive an exclusive free tutorial and this week this page layout will be one of the tutorials included. To subscribe click here.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope you have been inspired to scrap your memories and perhaps create a gift with them.

Please follow our hop through for lots more inspiration using this great sketch.

New at SU Blog Hop – CASE a Team Member with Adventurous Sky

Hello and welcome to the New at SU blog hop for April. Today we have a very exciting and interesting challenge. Each of us will be CASEing another one of our New at SU team members. I find these particular chllaneges extra fun and love being inspired by my friends.

New at SU Header 2023-2024

For my project I have used the new Adventurous Sky bundle and it’s coordinating Take to the Sky suite to create a masculine themed card.

I am CASEing Heather Cooper from Playing with Papercrafting and chose one of her past New at SU projects. This one goes all the way back to April 2022. Click on the image below to view the details of Heather’s project.

I was inspired by the frame that Heather had created and replicated that using the Deckled Rectangles dies. The frame was die cut 4 times (I cut 2 at once to save time) and then I embossed one frame with the new So Swirlly Embossing Folder. On the back of the frame I added one of the smaller DSP panels which is on the sheet which has the tags.

I loosely followed the layout of Heather’s card, adding my own variation to it. The plane was ccoloured with Stampin’ Blends and added to 2 smaller strips of DSP which were offset against each other. I just love the colours of the Designer Series Paper and drew on that for my card.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please leave me a comment as you go through to view Heather Cooper’s creation.

If you live in Australia and currently don’t have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would value the opportunity to help you with your crafting needs. I can be contacted on Ph: 0404 255 001 or email rochelle@stampingflair.com

Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop – Let’s go Fishing

It’s time for another Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop with the Crafty Collaborations team. I’m using the Let’s go Fishing Designer Series Paper which has some lovely generic neutral designs in addition to it’s fishing themed images.

For the top of my design I angled a small strip of DSP. This was balanced with a strip of the same DSP at the bottom and the largest DSP panel which were both placed at the same angle.

I wanted to create space for smaller photos as well as a feature larger photo. Using the Stylish Shapes dies square die I created my polaroid look photo frames. At the back of it I added some Gray Granite mattes for the photos. Some Black and White photos would look great in these 3 smaller frames with a colour photo for the larger frame.

I’ve also used the Beauty of the Deep bundle for some stamped and die cut images adding some fussy cut fish from the DSP to swim around my page.

The large frame was placed straight to ground all the different angles that were on the page, bringing it together with another strip of DSP at the bottom.

This Designer Series Paper coordinates with the Let’s go Fishing bundle which will be carrying over into the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. The paper is currently on our Last Chance sale and reduced to $10.87 (from $21.75), Grab yourself a pack (or two) of this while supplies last.

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.
