CTC #280 - CASE the Cover

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, where utilise the projects within the current Stampin' Up! catalogue to inspire our own projects each week. We also invite you to join with us in the challenge each week by using this inspiration in your own creations and uploading a photo to our Facebook page.

This week we are taking our inspiration from the cover of the new Holiday Mini Catalogue which is now live and available to order from!

I was inspired by this card on the cover, I liked all the layers and wanted to see how it looked using different products. 

I was happy to see the gorgeous Brightly Gleaming DSP was carrying over and now it is back on the books I decided to use it on my project this week.  I have kept the sketch the same as the original card, and gone with a mostly monochromatic colour scheme accented by copper. The "ribbon" on my card comes from the same DSP pack, a strip of DSP can often add to a project if you don't have the coordinating ribbon.  The ribbons on the parcels were stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Copper, however I didn't stamp the second part of the image, just cut them out with the dies, and then coloured using my aqua-painter to get some lovely variation to the colours. 

I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week, just use the samples on the cover of the Holiday Mini Catalogue to inspire your creativity, then post a picture of your project to the CTC Facebook page.


Time to hop on over and see what Rebecca has created this week.

CTC #279 - CASE The Sketch On Page 72

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, where utilise the projects within the current Stampin' Up! catalogue to inspire our own projects each week. We also invite you to join with us in the challenge each week by using this inspiration in your own creations and uploading a photo to our Facebook page.

This week we are taking our inspiration from this pretty card on page 72 of the Annual Catalogue. 
Here is the sketch of this card, simplified for this challenge.

Isn't the Boho Indigo Medley stunning?  I have featured a few of the stamps, dies and DSP in this card. There are seven vase shaped dies which coordinate with three of the stamps, or can be used to cut DSP which I have done on the two left hand vases.  The vase on the right is actually cut with one of the smaller dies than it was intended to coordinate with but still lined up well.  The sentiment is from Many Mates and coloured with Stampin' Blends, and punched using Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. 

I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week, just use the sketch from the card on page 72 as the basis for your project, then post a picture of your project to the CTC Facebook page.

CTC #278 - CASE Favourite Annual Catalogue Project

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, where utilise the projects within the current Stampin' Up! catalogue to inspire our own projects each week. We also invite you to join with us in the challenge each week by using this inspiration in your own creations and uploading a photo to our Facebook page.

 
This week we are taking our inspiration from any project in the Annual Catalogue! That's right any project and there are some really great ones in this catalogue.

Last time I started looking for a project to CASE I found one on page 5, so this time to give the projects further into the catalogue a fair go I started looking from the back and planned to make my way toward the front. Well it didn't take long for me to find this project on page 139, I think it was the floral images and the blue flowers.

I have just received the gorgeous Boho Indigo Product Medley and Blossoms in Bloom  Bundle so have been itching to ink them up. I wanted to see if I could use them together on the same card and it turns out they do look pretty good together! I initially inked up the flowers with Balmy Blue then used a sponge dauber to add Night of Navy to the centres of the flowers.  The sentiment is from the Boho Indigo stamp set and is stamped on one of the lovely tags that come in the Medley, the double layer of gold is so pretty.  I played around with the ribbon behind the sentiment but decided it looked better in a strip instead like the original.  

I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week, just use any of the samples in the Annual Catalogue to inspire your creativity, then post a picture of your project to the CTC Facebook page.

CTC #277 - CASE the Flowers for Every Season DSP Colours

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, where utilise the projects within the current Stampin' Up! catalogue to inspire our own projects each week. We also invite you to join with us in the challenge each week by using this inspiration in your own creations and uploading a photo to our Facebook page.

This week we are taking our inspiration from the colours of the Flowers For Every Season DSP.

These colours are Magenta Madness, Cinnamon Cider, Bumble Bee, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight. I have to say I love all of these new In-Colours and that the Flowers For Every Season Suite includes all of them, so it seemed perfect to use in my project for this challenge. This suite has two great bundles that work perfectly together, Celebrate Sunflowers and Jar of Flowers. 

One of the fun things about the Jar of Flowers bundle is the little shaker domes that coordinate with the punch from the bundle.  Because the card was fairly busy I did not add any pieces but rather chose to back the jar with one of the DSP sheets, I did add the ribbon and bow by cutting small slits on either side of the jar and threading the ribbon through before adhering the front of the card. The ribbon is Crinkled Seam Binding coloured with Magenta Madness Stampin' Blends, I love the pop of bright colour this brings.

I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week, just use the colours in the Flowers For Every Season, to inspire your creativity, then post a picture of your project to the CTC Facebook page.

Time to hop on over and see what Michelle has created this week.
