Trimming the Town CTC#283

Hello and Welcome to another wonderful Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge where we CASE 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 we are CASEING the colours of this gorgeous DSP - which are Early Espresso, Misty Moonlight, Poppy Parade, Pool Party and Old Olive.  

These were the colours I used to create a couple of Father's Day cards. I've also used the lovely Garage Gears suite of stamp set and dies.  

The inside of the card has some of the lovely In Good Taste paper folded to make a bench shape which features the tool box sitting on top!  

I coloured the tool box and the Father's Day sign using Stampin' Blends in pool party, old olive and poppy parade.  

Up next is the talented Michelle.  

We invite you to join in the challenge with us as well.  Click on the link above to head to our Facebook challenge page and add your photo to the lineup there!!

Celebrate with Social Stamping

Hello and Welcome to another amazing blog hop managed by the equally amazing Kelly Kent.  

This hop is designed for us to be socially connected through stamping and creativity!  If you click on the graphic above you will see the whole list of all the participants.  

The theme this time is Celebrate - and I've used it to "celebrate the season".  I actually just received this awesome new Evergreen embossing folder and wanted to try it out with a few different textures and cardstock....... so all these cards are identical, but different!!

The first card uses Pretty Peacock card sponged with some Champagne shimmery mist to show off the gorgeous trees.  I've added some Pool Party sheer ribbon and Iridescent Pearls.  

This luxurious card uses Brass Foil, Wonder of the Season ribbon and Snowflake adhesive backed embellishments.  

I have used some of the Feels Like Frost paper here combined with the Metallic Mesh ribbon and Wonderful Gems.

Finally this card features some Brushed Metallic cardstock, Snowflake Splendour ribbon and Blue adhesive backed gems.  

All of the cards feature stamping on the inside from Rooted in Nature and Wrapped In Christmas.

I hope you've been inspired by my simple Celebrate cards!!  

Up next is the wonderful Jan.

If you get lost on the way, you can head to the Blog Host list above and see all of the links for everybody in the hop!!

Colour INKspiration Gorgeous Posies

Hello and Welcome to another amazing Colour Combination with Colour INKspiration challenge.  

The colours for each challenge are inspired by some amazing images from Pinterest.

The colours this time are:  Magenta Madness, Just Jade, Rich Razzleberry, Garden Green and Rococo Rose.  

I have used them with the Gorgeous Posies stamp set and created a bunch of collage stamped cards.  

The greeting comes from Tasteful Touches.  I couldn't decide whether I liked the Whisper White base card or Just Jade, so I made a bunch of each!  Theses are for order this month.  

Make sure you head to our challenge page on Facebook to add your project featuring these colours!!

Detailed Dove bundle for my favourite CTC#282

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 amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues.  

This week we are CASEING our favourite bundle from our Mini Catalogue.  At the moment my favourite is the Dove of Hope bundle - I'm really loving this gorgeous stamp set and amazing dies.  

Minil Catalogue August - December 2020 page 13  all images © Stampin' Up! ®

I've taken my inspiration from the gorgeous card on the top left of the image above.  

This card is in a different orientation, and I've used the wonderful Balmy Blue glimmer paper with the Snowflake Splendour paper.  The white panel was die cut using a Tasteful Labels die embossed with the Scripty folder.  

My second card features the dove cut using some Brushed Metallic cardstock and a piece of the Plush Poinsettia paper for the background.  

Inside the cards feature the same papers and ribbon detail.  

I'm sure you can see why this is my favourite bundle at the moment!!  

Up next on our hope is the talented Lauren.

We hope you'll join the challenge with us and add your project to our lineup on our Facebook challenge page featuring YOUR favourite bundle.
