Christmas Inspiration Colour INKSPIRATION #68

Hello and Welcome to our fun Blog Hop and Challenge for Colour INKspiration!

Our challenge is inspired by some amazing pinterest images and Stampin' Up! colours.

No photo description available.

Love this picture this time!!  The colours are:  Shaded Spruce, Blueberry Bushel, Pretty Peacock, Coastal Cabana and Silver Foil.  

I've used the colours as my starting point for one of the cards in our So Many Stars Bundle class coming up.  There are lots of awesome star images, so I was able to incorporate all of these colours with the Silver Foil as my finishing touch.  

I'm such a fan of blues and silver for Christmas that the card evolved into an easel card so it could show off these awesome colours even more!!  

I love how the die cut for the stars fits exactly over the stamped image - brilliant coordination Stampin' Up!  Thankyou.

Up next on this gorgeous colour challenge is the amazing Leonie and her gorgeous bells.

Make sure you hop all the way around to see lots of really gorgeous projects and ideas!!  

We love it when you join in the fun with us too!  It's easy to add your photo to the lineup on our facebook challenge page.

Combining two Catalogues CTC#256

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

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything, or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE from the amazing projects illustrated in our Stampin' Up! catalogues.

This week, we are CASEING a layout from our Annual Catalogue and then giving it a twist with supplies from the Holiday Catalogue.  


My inspiration came from the front of the Annual Catalogue - see that Sailing Home card on the top row, 2nd in from the right?  I've cased the layout of this card to create a Christmas card using DSP from the Holiday Catalogue.

To keep with the horizontal stripe theme of the original card, I've embossed my Old Olive foil paper using the corrugated folder - embossing foil is just AWESOME!!  It always looks amazing!

My greeting panel has been super simplified from the original focussing on the gorgeous stamped image of the Gleaming Ornament, and the stamped greeting.

I've continued the stamped ornament using the Celestial Copper ink on the inside of the card as well. 

This is one of our cards for our Card Buffet coming up - so it's really simple and easy to replicate!!  

Up next on our hop is the amazing Michelle and super awesome sponging and totally adorable elves.  

We would love you to show us your inspiration from our Annual Catalogue  with a Holiday Catalogue twist too!!  It's easy to add your project to our facebook lineup!

The Selfie Hop with Scrapbooking Global

Hello and Welcome to our amazing Blog Hop with Scrapbooking Global.  

Image may contain: text

This is an amazing group of scrapbookers who use Stampin' Up! products, and we have some fantastic ideas to share with you!!

Image may contain: text

Our theme this time is the Selfie!  What a perfect theme!  I had so many photos and ideas I could use for this one!  

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, text

Thank you to Courtenay Heuston who has created this theme for us!!

My sister and I are all about the Selfie whenever we see each other!  One of the hardest decisions I had was choosing which event and photo for this page!  It's actually going to be half of a double spread with the other photos from the day being on the other page!  

My colours are Crumb Cake, Blueberry Bushell and some Copper.  I've also fussy cut some of the lovely images from the Pressed Petals DSP.

I've used some of the divine Copper Elements from the Christmas Gleaming Suite along with the So Many Stars stamp set and coordinating dies.  

Can you see the lovely stamped stars in the background?   The Celestial Copper Ink worked a treat  to give the page some extra shine!

Coming up with  a title for a page requires some creative energy sometimes but I went with a very simple word cut from copper foil using the Hand Lettered Prose dies - these are sooo perfect for scrapbooking!

Up next on our fun hop is Natalie. Make sure you keep hopping all the way around to be inspired over and over again all around the globe!!

Inspired by the Night Before Christmas DSP CTC#255

Hello and Welcome to a fun challenge and Sunday Night Blog Hop with CASEING the CATTY.

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit - and we love to CASE from our inspirational Stampin' Up! catalogues and then share it with you for your inspiration!!

No photo description available.

This week we are CASEING the Night Before Christmas DSP and the layouts on page 24.  My inspiration comes from the little square red card on the bottom left of the page.  

I've converted the card from a little gift card into a standard sized card and used the Night Before Christmas Memories and More cards as my card base.  

The rest of the card is pretty much the same as the original even though there are several differences and modifications.   I stamped the tree using Perfectly Plaid whereas the original has used an image cut from the DSP.  I've changed up the circle to use some of the Old Olive vellum which contrasts nicely with the white outline on the punched tree.  I didn't need to add any DSP in the background because the cards are already printed with the stars - easy!!

Up next for our fun blog hop is the lovely and talented  Michelle.

You are invited to share your project inspired by the fun NIght Before Christmas DSP too!  It's super easy to add your photo to our lineup on our facebook challenge page!!
