Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #83 - CASE-ing the Catty #16

Wild Wasabi #3

#ColorCoachJourney 

Hi

Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty! This week the challenge is to use Sale-A-Bration DSP on your project.




Guidelines -
  • Create a new project for the current challenge.
  • Mention CTC Challenges in your blog post and link back here so others can join in on the fun.  Please ensure that you link up your blog post, not your whole blog.
  • Mostly SUO (Stampin' Up! ® Only) products (retired or current) to be used in your projects for CTC Challenges.
  • Have fun and inspire others!


The colours on my card today are the Color Coach suggestions of Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist, and Early Espresso. 

The sentiment is actually from two sets....'Happy' is from Celebrate Today and 'Birthday' is from the Sale-A-Bration set, Big Day, and both are inked in Early Espresso. 



I was inspired by the card on page 14 of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. It showcases the Irresistibly Yours DSP. Here's the image from the catalogue:





I also made a second card inspired by the one from page 13 of the catalogue....I sponged the DSP with Crushed Curry ink. 


Here's the original:

Stampin' Up! Australia - Blendabilities

Hi there

As Jan Tink would say, I have committed rubbah-dultery this week. I know.....fifty lashes and all that...

Anyway, when I saw this stamp, I just had to have it....if only for the colouring potential! :)

I have coloured each of the continents in a different Blendabilities colour. Lots of fun - except when I dropped my Pumpkin Pie marker just above Siberia and it required a sequin! :)

The colours I used were Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi and Pumpkin Pie. 



This card is for the daughter of a friend of mine who recently returned from a charity bike ride in Thailand called "Hands Across the Water" - she was the youngest person ever to complete the ride - 800km in 8 day. I am so proud of her. It is an unbelievable achievement for anyone...let alone a 13 year old girl. She is truly amazing...and the world is brighter because of her. :)

I was also inspired by the challenge at Addicted to CAS this week where the theme word is "WORLD". How appropriate! :)

Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Nuts About You

Hi

Welcome to another Artful Stampers Blog Hop....welcome from Anna Foster's blog. 

Can you believe this is the first time I have inked up 'Nuts About You'? It is just SO adorable.


...and yes, my Soft Suede ink pad needs re-inking! :O

I hardly ever use ribbon on my cards but this one uses 4 different ones....Calypso Coral Chevron Ribbon, Old Olive Taffeta, Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Bakers Twine (which I pulled apart to make it thinner) and the Calypso Coral polyester ribbon from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. The button is from this pack too. 

The stunning DSP is Park Lane. 

Here are our colours....and as I type this I realise I have neglected to include Baked Brown Sugar...and it is too late to add something now!! Wah! Whoops. Just pretend the Soft Suede mat behind the DSP is Baked Brown Sugar. :)






The sketch is from Mojo Monday this week....there's so much you could do with this! 



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.
