Stampin' Up! Australia - CASE-ing The Catty - Sneak Peek!!!

Hi!

Welcome to this week's CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop! Welcome from Jess' blog.

This week the Blog Hop challenge is all about CASE-ing a project from the BRAND NEW 2015-2016 Stampin' Up! Catalogue. Exciting yes!?

CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything.  This whole blog hop is about using the current Stampin' Up! Catalogues to help you create.  Sometimes crafters need a springboard to just get started and the catalogues are certainly a demonstrator or customer's best resource.



Here's my card:



I'm using a brand new stamp set called Build a Birthday with some new Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper and Cherry On Top Washi Tape from the same suite. 

The candle is a washi tape strip with the flame in Delightful Dijon on top. 

The ribbon is the beautiful Watermelon Wonder Dotted Lace Trim. I folded it over to get a thinner strip. 

The little fringed embellishments are made from the NEW Cotton Paper in Delightful Dijon. Very easy to do with the Fringed Scissors. They look so cute in real life. :)

I can't show you the original inspiration, but I can tell you that I was inspired by a wrapped present in the catalogue that featured all these elements. :) 
I will come back after 2nd June and link the photo here.

Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #117 - Butterfly Basics Sympathy card

Chocolate Chip #3

#ColorCoachJourney 

Hi

I thought I would make a card for CASOLOGY this week using some Color Coach colors - Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango and Always Artichoke.

The theme word is STORY. The mother of a friend of mine passed away recently and although I had already sent her a card (so this one is not for her), it got me thinking about sympathy cards and the story of someone's life. I think this sentiment is beautiful as the memory of that person still lives on as they those who love them remember their life's story.




I put some Wink of Stella (clear) on the flowers and on a few of the stems just to soften the card a little bit and to reference the radiant sentiment. To echo the story theme, I stamped my sentiment on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and tore the sides and rolled the ends so it looked like a scroll. 

The only thing I think I would change about this is I would replace the Chocolate Chip layer with a Very Vanilla layer...after looking at the finished card, I think this would be more pleasing. 



I hope you like my card. If you have been inspired by it and would like to support my creative business, all the supplies may be found by clicking through the links below which will take you to my store (some links not active until 2nd June).

Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Flower Shop - Color Coach Card #116

Cherry Cobbler #1

Hi

Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.


I am participating in a fun Pinterest challenge too this week where Stampin' Up! have challenged us to use a selection of punches on our projects. The punches on my card are the Pansy Punch and the Hearts Border Punch. 

I used Color Coach colours of Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy and Calypso Coral. They are all quite strong colours so I used a lot of white here to give it balance. The centre of my flower is a pom pom from the Calypso Coral pom pom trim. :)




Here is the sketch for this week's challenge:


Card recipe

Stamp - Flower Shop, A Dozen Thoughts
Ink - Cherry Cobbler, A Night of Navy
Cardstock- Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy, Birthday Bash DSP
Tools - Stampin' Trimmer, Stampin' Dimensionals, Big Shot, Happy Heart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Pansy Punch, 1/2 inch circle punch
Accessories - Calypso Coral Pom-Pom trim

I hope you will join in and create a card with us.....and please feel free to leave me and the other CCMC participants some comments! :)

Cheers
