Painted Harvest gorgeousness for CTC#152

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night blog hop sharing inspiration from our Stampin' Up! Catalogues, and caseing the amazing projects produced by 
the awesome design team for Stampin' Up!

This week we are CASEing from the Painted Autumn and Spooky Nights chapters - pages 48 - 55.

And I have been inspired by two projects - this one here on page 51 which is featured in the Painted Autumn chapter.  

I was inspired by this card because I really really wanted to try out Stampin' Up!s new alcohol markers - Stampin' Blends. And I was thrilled with the result - they are so wonderful to use and colour with!!  

If you love colouring you MUST try these markers - they will be available from 1st November (only 3 more sleeps!!).  

As per the project in the catalogue, I've also coloured and cut extra petals to create more dimensional interest with the flower - it looks fantastic in real life!!  This is a fun easy technique that really does make a difference to the flower.  Thank you Stampin' Up! design team for the awesome idea. 

My next project is inspired by this lovely card on page 48 in the lovely Painted Autumn Suite. As it says in the catalogue, this is a quick and easy card, so my page is very simple too.

 I've changed the colours to coordinate with my photos from our fun day out at the theatre seeing Kinky Boots, but the layout is the same as the card.

I'm grateful for my stamping time this week - I got to do another scrapbook page AND I got to play with the NEW Stampin' Blends.  

I wonder what you could do this week that would be inspired by these chapters in the holiday catalogue?  We love seeing your lovely projects!!  It's easy to add to our facebook challenge page!!

And now it's time to keep hopping through the team to see Monique's marvellous creation!!

Until next time,
Happy stamping,
Love Julia   x
