Fun with Stampin' Up! Kit inspiration CTC#179

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop CASEING the CATTY.

We like to inspire you and share our ideas generated from the amazing projects in our Stampin' Up! catalogue.  CASEING is all about Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit.

No automatic alt text available.

This week, our inspiration is coming from any of the kits from any catalogue!!

I have been inspired by the gorgeous layouts from the Soft Saying kit - it is featured on page 10 of our Annual Catalogue.  

I have a bit of a story to share with you..... these cards are using some left overs from another project I've created for a future Caseing the Catty post!!  

One of the most amazing and awesome new products in our NEW Catalogue starting on June 1st, is some laser cut Delightfully Detailed Specialty DSP.  It has 2 different designs of 12" x 12" paper laser cut into some gorgeous patterns.  I sponged 1 full sheet of the DSP using Night of Navy, Blueberry Bushel, Balmy Blue and Gray Granite.  It comes with some tissue paper in between each sheet, and the negative of the pattern of the DSP has been sponged as well on to the tissue paper!!  

So, these pieces of sponged tissue paper became my card fronts, and I've added a stamped greeting and some snipped pieces of the laser cut DSP as embellishments.  The greeting comes from the Soft Sayings stamp set (which comes in the kit) and I've used the tags from the NEW Share What You Love embellishment kit (available this month EARLY!!!)

The only extras are some silver bakers twine, some vellum pieces and a couple of leaves punched using the Leaf Punch from the Blueberry Bushel card stock.  

I really love these colours together, and it was just beautiful to see the tissue paper all coloured!!  You can actually see some blurring of the design where I've moved the DSP, but I really do love this effect too!!!

I hope you've been inspired to look at our kits in new and different ways!  Keep hopping all the way through the design team, and you'll see some amazing ideas to get your creative brain into action!!

When you've finished the hop, add your projects to our facebook challenge page with this link!!

Until Next Time

Love Julia   x
