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.

Baby Wipe Technique – Magnolia Mood Bundle

Last week I tried out a variation on the Baby Wipe Technique and created a range of backgrounds. I played around with various colours and came up with a few different options. For this particular base I used Bubble Bath, Highland Heather and Melon Mambo.

BABY WIPE TECHNIQUE VARIATION

You will need a couple of baby wipes which you fold into 1/8 (roughly) to form a small ink pad. Drop the ink refill colour of your choice onto the baby wipe. Gentle wipe it in circular motion onto a piece of Fluid 100 Cardstock. Apply the colour to different sections.

Continue with the other colours until you get a blended look.

Freshly Made Sketches, FMS629

I’ve followed the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #fms629 and used the Magnolia Mood bundle to complete my card.

Stamping the image in Stazon ink, I watercoloured the image with a range of ink refills including Shy Shamrock which is part of the 2024-2026 In-Color range.

For the top part of the sketch I fussy cut a piece of Masterfully Made Designer Series Paper. Under it I added an embossed piece of White Cardstock which had been die cut with the Gorgeously Made dies. On the Thick White card base, I added another piece of White Cardstock exactly the same size which was embossed with the Timeworn Type Embossing Folder. I find that embossing the card base can warp the card front so I prefer to add that extra layer.

Check out the Online Exclusives range in my Online Store to see lots of other products which you won’t find in any of our catalogues. It’s an additional shopping experience.

Apple Harvest Card with Houndstooth Background

Today I’m playing along with the Global Design Project Challenge #gdp412 CASE the designer project. We are CASEing a card by Wilma de Korte from the the Netherlands.

To CASE means to Copy and Selectively Edit any part of the card whether it’s layout, colours, themes, stamp set. I’ve copied the layout of Wilma’s card creating a houndstooth background with the Abundant Beauty Decorative mask.

The frame was blended in Real Red and then I added Gilded Leafing with Liquid Glue dotted in sections. This was mounted using Foam Adhesive Sheets cut into thin strips.

On this I added the apples, coloured in with a variety of Stampin’ Blends and cut out using the scalpel tip from the Take Your Pick Crafters Tips. This was great to get inbetween all the leaves so that the background was visible.

The sentiment was stamped on the Delightful Floral Designer Series Paper which was also used as one of the matte layers. To stabilise the sentiment I added 3 layers of scrap cardstock under it before mounting it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Products used to create this card are listed at the bottom of this post. You can shop online or contact me to place your order.

Just my Type Thank You Card

Designer Series Paper is one of my favourite products. It’s so easy to create a quick and beautiful card when I have pretty paper doing the hard work for me.

I’ve used the Delightfully Eclectic Designed Series Paper to create this card. Even the flower was cut out of a sheet of DSP and blended with Fresh Freesia ink for a coordinated look and used to embellish the typewriter.

161640, Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!

I have a fondness for those individual stamp sets in the catalogue that are just a little bit different. The Just my Type stamp set is one of those cute sets with sweet images. I love how these can be paired together or used individually for different looks.

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.
