My favourite project? CTC#278

Hello and Welcome to another fabulous Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY.    Welcome if you have just arrived from Monique.

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE from our Stampin' Up! catalogues which are full of amazing inspiration.  

This week we are CASING our Favourite Project in the new Catalogue!!  HARDEST CHALLENGE EVER!!!  I love love love so much in this new catalogue and I did lots of creating and changing my mind and making decisions, so in the end I decided my favourite is the Boho Indigo Suite projects. 
Annual Catalogue 2020-2021 page 9  all images © Stampin' Up! ®

I've been inspired by the gorgeous vanilla card on the Bottom Right, and the lovely vase card on the bottom left - these were the starting point for a few cards!!

The card on the left inspired this lovely card featuring the gorgeous papers.  I've made it into a card with a central panel featuring the lovely vase!!  

After completing this card, I then wanted to show off more of the paper, so I created another card in an extended z fold which features the paper to perfection!!  

The embellishment on this card really relies on the stunning dies that coordinate with the stamp set.  

I love the way this card folds out to really show off!!  

And then, at our recent team meeting I was totally inspired by Wanda who showed us a 'wiper' card with a super cute little pop-up feature!!  

This card features a bunch of the stunning die cuts that come with the Boho Indigo suite, as well as the lovely textured paper.  

The only stamping on this card is the greeting which is also stamped onto one of the die cuts included in the suite.  When you push the card in the pop-up disappears!!  And then when you pull it out the cute little 'wiper' feature pops up!!  There will be a great video on YouTube to show you how to do this!!  

I hope you've been inspired too!  This Boho Suite is just amazing and so versatile, fun and totally gorgeous!!  I wonder what the rest of the crew found to be their favourites this week???  Keep hopping all the way around to see them all.  

Up next is the wonderful Rebecca who always inspires!!  

You can join in the fun too with us this week and share your favourite project inspiration onto our Facebook challenge page!!

Social Stamping featuring Sympathy

Hello and Welcome to another amazing blog hop hosted by the equally amazing Kelly Kent!

You can see the main Blog Post above with the list and links for everyone in the hop (especially if you get lost on the way - this is very useful!!!)

My card is one of the ones from the gorgeous Gorgeous Posies kit and the coordinating stamp set.  There are some very lovely and useful greetings in the stamp set, and I think this one works perfectly for Sympathy.  

The kit features stunning soft and dramatic colours with hints of gold foil and interesting textures from the ribbons and die cut labels for the stamping.  

These are all of the cards from the kit - my mojo was running on empty so I needed to be creative without doing any thinking - so enter the kit!  I got to be totally creative AND make beautiful cards AND no thinking required.  I LOVE THAT!!

All those gorgeous gold shimmery elements are soooo pretty!!  

Up next on our fabulous hop is the amazing Nicole who is ALWAYS amazing in her creativity!!  

You can see the Blog Host List above.  

Here is the stamp set featured on the cards - the greetings are all gorgeous AND useful!!  

Here are all of the elements in the kit AND there are quite a few left over pieces when you have finished so you can add extra embellishment to your cards too!

We love to find inspiration from some amazing images on Pinterest, and then translate the colours into our fabulous Stampin' Up! colours.  

This time we are featuring one of our new INcolours for this dramatic image!!  

I've created a simple z-fold card and used the super cute stamp set Cute Fruit!!  It's one of the sets from our Beginner Catalogue and it's soooo adorable! 

 (I used this same Fancy Fold for my project for CASEING the CATTY on Sunday.)  

There are gorgeous puns in the greetings and a range of yummy fruit images!  These colours were just perfect for the watermelon!  (Melon Mambo is NOT on my favourite colour list but it is soooo perfect for the the lovely melon!!  Even the name is perfect!!)

The paper is the Incolour DSP which works perfectly to lift any project!  The front of the card features some Just Jade cardstock which has been embossed with the Greenery embossing folder - super lovely way to add extra interest and texture.  

I hope you're inspired to have a go creating with these amazingly bright colours!!

Incolours of the paper CTC#277

Hello and Welcome to another Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASING the CATTY.

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE from our amazing Stampin' Up! catalouges (Catty).

This week, we are caseing the colours from the Flowers for Every Season paper.  Welcome if you've just arrived from the lovely Sandra.  

And I've used the paper to create this cute simple z fold card.  

Two matching strips of the stunning Flowers for Every Season paper act as bookends for the greeting on the front and inside the card.  

The Birthday Wishes was heat embossed with white embossing powder, and then I've used the Magenta Madness ink for the sentiments inside the card - they come from the lovely stamp set Fancy Phrases.

Time to keep hopping all around the team to be inspired many times over with the projects from everyone!  

Up next is the gorgeous Rebecca and her amazing project!!!
