The Colours of the Ornate Garden Suite CTC#268

Hello and Welcome to another fun Sunday Challenge CASEING the CATTY.

To CASE is to Copy And Selectively Edit or to Copy And Share Everything, and we love to CASE from our Stampin' Up! offerings.

This week we are CASEING the Colours of the new Ornate Garden Suite that is coming in our new catalogue in June!!  The colours are:  Early Espresso, Bumblebee (a NEW yellow coming soon!  I've used Crushed Curry instead), Mint Macraon, Old Olive, Terracotta Tile and Whisper White. 

Well........ I got totally carried away with the flowers!!!  My page is somewhat crazy and busy, but I've decided the important thing is to get these memories scrapped!!  

I've used the Daisy Lane stamp set and coordinating Daisy punches along with the leaf punch, sprig punch and the leaf from the tulip punch.  And lots of gold enamel dots!!

The background behind the photos was stamped using Old Olive and Crushed Curry with the fern image and the smallest daisy in the stamp set.

I've also added a few strips of the crushed curry Follow Your Art washi tape. 

Up next on our colour challenge hop is the lovely Peta and her project using these colours.

We would love you to join the challenge this week too.  We are only running this challenge for one week, so make sure you get in quick!  You can easily add your photo of your project to our facebook challenge page here.

War & Peace for social stamping using Poppies

Hello and Welcome to another wonderful blog hop to celebrate Social Stamping.

Today, we are commemorating Anzac Day with a theme of War and Peace. You can see the whole blog list by clicking on the image above.  

 Our remembrance was very different in our current time with physical distancing, but still beautiful and meaningful in our own streets.  We saw the sun rise in quiet with our neighbours in our own community.  

This week I've decided to show off the stunning Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.  These are very simple cards using the paper, the Peaceful Poppies Elements and a simple greeting all on the Magnolia Lane Cards and Envelopes.

This card features the lovely greeting from Bloom and Grow.  

I forgot to take a photo of the inside, but all the cards feature one of the poppy images from the Painted Poppies stamp set coloured with the lovely Poppy marker.  

Each of the papers in this paper pack is glorious.

The last card features the very useful Label Me Bold stamp set.  

Up next on the hop is the amazing Jan.  Make sure you keep hopping around the whole group to see lots of amazing inspiration to get your craft going this weekend!!

Hello Autumn Colour INKspiration #76

Hello and Welcome to another awesome colour challenge with a very talented group of creative souls. 

The colour INKspiration design team are an amazing group and you can see all their inspiring creations on our Facebook page.  Our challenge colours come from some stunning images that are sourced from Pinterest.  

The colours this time are:  Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, Pear Pizzazz.

I've actually taken the stimulus picture very literally, and used the colours to create a wreath for my scrap page.  

I've used Stampin' Blends to colour the blooms from the Forever Blossoms stamp set.  All the images  were stamped with Pear Pizzazz and then I used the Pear Pizzazz marker to colour the leaves.  

The flowers were coloured with the dark and light Pumpkin Pie Blends with little highlights using the light Cherry Cobbler Blend.  The extra Cherry Cobbler flowers were stamped with ink onto the same colour cardstock and then punched with the small bloom punch (from Sale-a-bration).  This photo is a bit close!!  It looks better a bit further away!!  teehee.

I've stamped the title from the stamp set Forever Blossoms.   

My inspiration for this scrap page comes from the amazing Sharon Dalton here.

Please go to our challenge page and join in the fun.  Get creating your project using these gorgeous Autumnal colours, take a photo and add it to the lineup.

Week 2 Ornate Garden inspiration CTC#267

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 our Stampin' Up! catalogues.   

This is the second week we are CASEING from the florals of the Ornate Garden Suite which is a super exciting sneak preview from our NEW upcoming Catalogue (due out in June).

For the second week, I have been TOTALLY inspired by the 3 way split panel card on the bottom left of the graphic above.  This week, my focus is on the Timeless Tropical Suite from our Mini Catalogue (one of my favourites!!).  I've tried to create a 'no stamping' card so that I can present a cardmaking kit by mail.  

The embossing folder in the background is also from the Timeless Tropical Suite - called Coastal Weave, as is the awesome Braided Burlap Trim.  The feature florals are part of the totally delicious Timeless Tropical Designer Series Paper - love love love this paper!!  

Inside the card is a mat of Daffodil Delight and another strip of my favourite paper.  

I've adhered all those bits and pieces of the die cuts using the ever useful mini glue dots!!! 

Up next is the amazing Lauren and her wonderful project inspired by these Ornate Garden florals.  

You are invited to be part of our challenge too!!  Add your project to our lineup on our facebook challenge page with the Ornate Garden Suite florals!!
