CTC196 – Santa’s Workshop

CTC-BlogBanner

Oh my… have you actually really really looked at the suite of products on offer in this section of the catalogue? It. Is. De.Vine…. sigh….  (insert dreamy eye emoji!)

CTC196

This is the section of the holiday catalogue the Caseing The Catty Crew are focussing on for this week’s hop. Welcome if you are joining me here or if you have hopped over from the lovely Julia Quinn.

The thing about the products in this suite is, you have to feel them. The Designer Paper is flocked, meaning it has raised texture and the Memories and More cards have glitter adhered on, so they too have raised texture and sparkly to match! The other thing is the dies fit the little characters printed on the Designer paper, and some of the circle punches will punch out all the little extras – candy canes, snowflakes and lollies – so there is little wastage. Notice how they are printed in lines too – you can cut strips and not decapitate poor ol’ Santa… he does have a tough job as it is huh!

There is so much to love with all of these products, but this week, I went in a different direction. You know I love all the idea in the catalogue too, so this weeks card came from inspiration from the “Have yourself a Merry Christmas” card design on the right on page 23.

2018_HOLIDAY_P023_500px

This is what I came up with.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! All is Bright DSP, Making Christmas Bright, Swirly Snowflake thinlit, Pretty Pines thinlits

Very Vanilla and Gold are the main colours and I have teamed them up with a splash of Real Red. The card is square and I have included a strip of Gold Glimmer paper layered with some of that yummy bauble design paper from the All is Bright suite. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set and die cut with an oval from the Stitched Shapes framelits.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! All is Bright DSP, Making Christmas Bright, Swirly Snowflake thinlit, Pretty Pines thinlits

The back of the sentiment is adorned with die cut elements in Gold Glimmer paper and Foil from the Swirly Snowflakes and Pretty Pines thinlits sets. I love mixing up my existing collection of toys with my new ones!

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! All is Bright DSP, Making Christmas Bright, Swirly Snowflake thinlit, Pretty Pines thinlits

I was wishing I had purchased the Red Rhinestones from the Annual Catalogue, but I keep forgetting to order them, so to substitute, I used the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and coloured some medium and small Pearls. This added the splash of colour I was looking for. To make the job of applying them soooo much easier, I used the new Take Your Pick tool – it has many options to help you along while crafting. Today, i used the palette knife to loosen the pearls off the backing of the packaging the come on, and the putty end to lift them and move them into place on my project. All those pearls, in place on my project in no time!

Next up in the hop is Fi Cobbin.

Colour INKspiration – CI41

colourinkspiration-banner

I’m back hopping with the Colour INKspiration Crew and this hop is all about the new Regals colour collection. Welcome if you are joining me here or if you have hopped over from Nikki Spencer.

CI41-120918

We have mixed up a few of our colour palettes this half year, allowing ourselves to be inspired by Stampin’ Up! new colour range. The three colours from the Regals range I have chosen to focus on are Blackberry Bliss (so happy to see this one back!!) and Old Olive and Crushed Curry.

Here is what I came up with.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Thank You thinlit, Petal Palette

I thought I’d show so love to a couple of my favourite stuff, waiting patiently on the shelf for me to get over my Holiday catalogue excitement – like that is going to happen soon huh?!

Starting with a Blackberry Bliss cardstock base, I have layered some Crushed Curry cardstock around some of that yummy new Festive Farmhouse Designer paper. This is new in the Holiday catalogue but has a great couple of woodgrain pieces which have become my favourites. Me thinks, I could use a whole pack of these two designs on their own!

First I stamped the DSP with the large leaf image from the Petal Palette stamp set with some Old Olive ink and adhered these three layers together. I die cut the thank you from some Blackberry Bliss cardstock and adhere this over the top. Finishing with a stamped flower from the same stamp set and colouring it with Crushed Curry Marker, I layered this on some Blackberry cardstock – punching both using Layering Circle framelits. Before adhering I applied a little snail adhesive and arranged some of that lovely polka-dot tulle ribbon to the back, so it framed the punched circle on three sides, then allow some extra length to flow from one edge to act like an underline of my sentiment.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Thank You thinlit, Petal Palette

I was having so much fun creating this, plus I needed a few more Thank You cards, I created some in a couple of different colours (ok so not all of these are form Regals! Sshhh – don’t tell Bronwyn, she’s up next!) and used Tropic Chic stamp set.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Thank You thinlit, Tropical Chic

Why not join in this challenge and show us what you create with this collection. Remember choose 3 colours from Regals and you can use the Basics collection (Black, White and Vanilla) to compliment.

Next up on the hop is the amazing Bronwyn Eastley.

CTC195 – Festive Farmhouse

CTC-BlogBanner

It’s another hop with the Caseing The Catty crew and this week it’s all about the Festive Farmhouse suite, pages 12–17. Welcome if you are joining me here or if you have hopped over from Peta.

This weeks inspiration has come from the Noel card on the bottom of the main suite page.

CTC195

Here is where the inspiration took me.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Making Christmas Bright, Festive Farmhouse

I used different layer combination on my card, but I think the result is nice and clean. Using the Festive Farmhouse Design paper (OMG… so in love with this pack!) I layered this over a Chery Cobbler card base.

The two green punched elements are Call Me Clover and are from Petal & more thinlit dies. I used one of those gorgeous pearlized doilies and some Champagne foil to layer.

The stamp set I used is the Making Christmas Bright, the circle I stamped on some vellum so that you can still see some of the detail beneath it, and the sentiment I stamped on Whisper White and both these elements were punched using Circle framelits.

RosePacker18-61b

I didn’t over embellish this one as I thought the layers do all the work here. Keeping the stamping clean and simple helped to balance these layers too.

Next up on the hop is Sandra Collett.

ESAD holiday Catalogue hop

ESAD-1

Welcome to the Holiday Blog Hop with the ESAD demonstrator group. There is more information about what ESAD is, if you are wondering about who we are, located at the bottom of this blog post. But right now, I’m really excited to show you what I’ve been up to with my new Holiday catalogue toys!

Welcome, if you are joining me here or if you have hopped over from Lauren Meiklejohn.

I have a cute a little card that doubles as a gift card holder to show you. I can’t take credit for the design, this came from another paper craft mob. I had a customer show me their project they completed recently at a craft fair and I took one look, flipped it over, turned it upside down and new how to create it. I just don’t know who the crafters were to credit them.

But I set about creating my own version and here it is.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Merry Christmas to All, Flourish Filigree, Gift card holder

Here I have used a number of new products from the Holiday catalogue as well as the Dashing Along Designer Series paper, which is a special promotion for hosts or customers with qualifying  workshop sales.

This first card uses the gorgeous Merry Christmas to All bundle, I’m just so in love with those thinlits, the flexibility they offer is great. I added some Champagne foil over the Designer paper, layered the Christmas die cut and stamped the Wishes to coordinate.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Merry Christmas to All, Flourish Filigree, Gift card holder

This is what the inside looks like. You could even use this pouch to hold some gift tags you may give as a gift.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Merry Christmas to All, Flourish Filigree, Gift card holder

Here I have added a simple mix of old and new products to create a little Christmas bouquet. It’s important to me, to make sure my new products play nicely with my existing ones, so I look the coordination between them. Here I have used the new Sprig punch and the carry over Pretty Pines thinlit dies.

I have stamped one of the sentiments from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set. There is room to write a message behind the gift card, which sits neatly in the pouch.

As I was creating this first card, I wondered what this design would look like when teamed up with some edgelits, so here is another one I created using the Delicate Lace Edgelits.

RosePacker18-62e

Again using another design in the Dashing Along paper pack and some more Champagne foil, I layered more of the Pretty Pines ferns in a tonal colour range – Garden Green and Soft Seafoam (is there another colour Soft Seafoam does not coordinate with?!)

The stamp is from the Flourish Filigree stamp set. I just love this set, it’s simple and can be used for many occasions. The inside featured more of that lovely paper and shapes from Stitched Labels Framelits and the Pretty Label punch, Circle framelits. The sentiment is new – it’s from the Dashing Deer stamp set.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Merry Christmas to All, Flourish Filigree, Gift card holder

I hope you enjoyed this inspiration and encourage to hop along with the rest of the team for more creativity. Next up is Monique Felder .

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Brushos, Thoughtful Banners, Merry Christmas thinlits

Using the “happy” from the Merry Christmas thinlit die set, I overlayed a background created using Brilliant Blue Brusho’s powder on some Shimmery White cardstock. The “fathers day” is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and is punched with the Classic label punch for a simple but effective card.

CTC194 – All is Bright

CTC-BlogBanner

Caseing the Catty this week, we are starting to look at the new Holiday catalogue which starts at in just a couple of days, September 5.

I’m so excited, there is a lot to like about that this Holiday catalogue and I know you will too when you are able to see it!

We are starting at the beginning of the catalogue, with the All is Bright suite, which contain some of my favourite products! I drew inspiration from a card design featured on page 10 of the catalogue.

CTC194

Here is my card.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses. Stampin' Up! All is Bright Suite, Merry Christmas thinlits, Merry Christmas to all, Shimmer paint

New products used here include the Merry Christmas to All stamp set, Merry Christmas thinlit and the gorgeous All is Bright Designer Paper. I’m just so in love with the new thinlit dies, I can see a range of uses past Christmas with the Happy thinlit. Plus when you couple those with the sentiments from the Stamp set, the options are endless.

I really like the Designer paper too, it has a great mix of photography and Christmas patterns. Here I have used the design which has those gorgeous golden baubles, which goes lovely with the Crumb Cake cardstock. I have stamped the corners with a flourish from the stamp set and topped off with a few pearls.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses. Stampin' Up! All is Bright Suite, Merry Christmas thinlits, Merry Christmas to all, Shimmer paint

I have used Cherry Cobbler for that splash of colour to accent. The Merry is from the thinlit set and here I have added two more embellishments – the All is Bright paper clips which has the star and the tree design and I also added some sparkle with the Champagne Shimmer paint. I made a solution of paint and rubbing alcohol in a spritz bottle and spritzed my card to add a lovely sparkle across my card.

You are going to love this catalogue, stay tuned on September 5 for the catalogue available online.

Next up in the hop, is the lovely Rachel Palmieri

The story of the catch up

So last night was my first blog post back (Yay!!) after my amazing incentive trip last month. My blogging break was a little longer than expected as I had a bad case of Vertigo upon arrival back in Australia. It kind of knock me out for a couple of days, then a slow road back to the land of no-spinning and steady feet! Thankfully, I’m almost all good now and my mojo is coming back too!

So I thought I’d do a quick wrap up of projects from the last little while to catch up.

First up – I thought I’d share a sneak peak. But this is a sneak peak of a different kind. You’ve seen these products before, so nothing new there. But this project will feature in another post I am currently writing about my Incentive trip experience. That post is coming soon, but I thought I’d share the swap I made for the trip, which went to 25 demonstrators around the world.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Painted Glass stamp set, Stained Glass thinlits

 

Next, upon returning home, my pre-order for this months exclusive bundle, Blended Seasons, was waiting for me. While it had to wait longer than expected before I could use it, this is one of the cards I have made.  This is an exclusive limited time bundle (only available during August 2018) as well as those gorgeous set of new shades in Watercolour pencils. View the products here. Here I have coloured the background of my Whisper White cardstock in Balmy Blue pencil, so that my flowers stayed white.

This card does feature a sneak peak – it’s the new Corrugated embossing folder coming in the Holiday Catalogue next month!!

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Blended Season stamp set, Stitched Seasons framelits, Corrugated Embossing Folder

 

Shortly after arriving home, I enjoyed one of the perks of being a demonstrator – Pre order of new catalogue products!! I just love that we get to see, order and play with new products first!

In the Holiday catalogue starting next month, is a new favourite. At least, I know these are going to be a favourite, as they are just an awesome product. It’s the new Foiled Edge cards and envelopes! Hellooo…. instant bling!! They come in packs of 20 in both gold and silver. Here, I have teamed up the gold ones with some of the gorgeous Broadway Bound suite of products.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Broadway Bound, Broadway Birthday, Happy Birthday Thinlit, Gold edged cards & envelopes

 

With a trip like we have just enjoyed, I have a list as tall as me of all the Memories & More album making and Scrapping to do!! Here is one page I made recently of my gorgeous princess on her “Princess for a Day” experience that she enjoyed at Disneyland. I just love how you can make embellishments from Stampin’ Up!’s stamps and dies, to adorn pages, without adding to much bulk and fuss.

There is more to this Disney story too and a page 2, so stay tuned!

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Painted Glass stamp set, Stained Glass thinlits, Delicate Lace edgelits

 

So this brings us to last week. I’m busy preparing for a papercraft expo for this weekend. One of the displays I have made showcases how you can use Stampin’ Up! papercraft products to make just about anything your mind imagines. I found this cute frame in a store, I liked the shape but frame on the inside was quite plain. Perfect!!

So I covered the photo matte and the sides with some new woodgrain design pattern paper coming in the Holiday catalogue – Festive Farmhouse. Oh my lordy, I’ll be buying more of this gorgeous pack. Because it is sized at 12×12, it was easy to cover the backing matte in one piece too.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Merry Christmas thinlits, Blended Seasons stamp set, Festive Farmhouse

I added a different pattern for the floor from our regular Woodgrain Textures 6×6 pack and some Whisper White for the ceiling. I finished off the frame with a few simple embellishments: the bell is from this months Blended Seasons bundle and is coloured with the new Real Red Stampin’ Blends. I also used Blends to colour some of the larger Rhinestones, and grouped them together so they look like berries in the Boxwood wreath, which I have unravelled and arranged like a garland.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Blended Season stamp set, Stampin' Blends, Boxwood Wreaths, Festive Farmhouse

The star at the top is a new paper clip embellishment coming in the Holiday catalogue too, along with that gorgeous die cut “Christmas”. You’ll be seeing a lot more of that set, I can tell you now.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Merry Christmas thinlits, Festive Farmhouse

 

Last but not least a simple box of treats. Here I have dressed up a clear mini treat box with some Designer paper and a few various trims. A simple idea like this and few minutes of your time, turns a pack of lollies into a little gift with some care and thought. When you want to say a simple “thank you”, this is a great way to express your appreciation. It says just as much about you as it does the person you are thanking.

RosePacker18-56a

So this brings us up to today, where I have a few more thank yous to create and many more Christmas ideas flowing into my imagination. So stay tuned for more on some of these projects here and all the new ones I’ll be bringing you soon.

CTC192 – Tranquil Textures

CTC-BlogBanner

I’m so excited to be back hopping with the amazing girls from Caseing The Catty. This week we are drawing inspiration from the Tranquil Textures suite and up to page 163.

CTC192

This week, I was inspired by this card design…

2018_AC_P157

 

I really like all the layers in the stamping in this card, this is where the texture is. Even though I didn’t use quite so many layers, I combined mine card with strength in colour, so I felt it didn’t need as many.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Floral Frames, Foliage frame framelits

Here I changed out the main element for the ever amazing Foliage Frames framelit set and the coordinate stamps, Floral Frames.

I opted to keep it neutral by using shades of the same hue and then add just a zing of colour. So used some Tranquil Textures Designer paper coordinated with some Granny Apple Green (which is fast becoming a favourite! I don’t even know when I started liking greens!!)

I did add some texture style stamping in the background using Timeless Textures and some Granny Apple Green and Soft Seafoam inks.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Floral Frames, Foliage frame framelits

My zing of colour is Lovely Lipstick. I’ve added a layer of cardstock beneath the white, which I have made appear so very thin. I have also stamped and punched some flowers in Lipstick which I have layered beneath the main sentiment element. I have tucked them in underneath so they are only just peaking out. Then I have used this on my sentiment also.

Next up on the hop is Sandra Collett.
