Creative Class ONLINE

Take a walk down Daisy Lane

This month’s online class features the beautiful and versatile Daisy Lane Bundle, which I am really enjoying at the moment. You can find it in the 2019 Annual Catalogue on page 23.

The Bundle itself features the Daisy Lane stamp set and the new Medium Daisy punch.

I just love how this stamp set also coordinates with the carry over Daisy Punch, which is larger in size, making it perfect for layering flowers together. This allows for easy creation of stunning elements.

CTC235 – Case the card on page 159

CTC-BlogBanner

Another really cool Case from the team here at Caseing The Catty. Welcome if you are joining me here or if you have hopped over from Rebecca. This weeks case is using the card sketch on page 159…

CTC235

And here is how I interpreted it…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Come Sail Away, Sailing Home Stamp set, Smooth Sailing dies

Like all card sketches I case, I first break down the elements… cardbase, designer paper layer, Whisper White layer, decorative element on the top left.

Using the Sail Away suite, I first chose the piece of designer paper I wanted to use… here I went with the gray coral design. This made choosing the rest of my colour palette easier. I decided to stick with mostly black and white and just used the Mint Macaron as a pop of colour.

What I really like about the stamp set, is how clever the Stampin’ Up! stamp designers are. In this set, they have designed two sail boats for us to use. They are similar in style, but different in size and direction. This allows us to create realistic scenes if we wanted to.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Come Sail Away, Sailing Home Stamp set, Smooth Sailing dies

On my card, I have kept things simple, but used basic art principles… objects in the distance appear light and smaller and objects closer to us are larger and more vivid. So on my card, the smaller boat is stamped higher in Smokey Slate to give the appearance of being further away and the larger boat is stamped lower and in Basic Gray for a closer feel.

I finished off the card with a sentiment framed with a little Mint cardstock and the ships wheel trinket with a little of the Mint ribbon behind.

Next up in the hop is the amazing Michelle Strazds.

Colour INKspiration – CI58

colink-blogbanner-v3

So good to be back hopping with the amazing team from the Colour INKspiration… and what a great colour combination too – thanks Kelly! Welcome if you have hopped over from Rachel or if you are joining me here. This colour combination is sure to inspire… Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Gold and Blushing Bride.

CI58

I went with making a card and using the every popular and gorgeous new Good Morning Magnolia.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Band Together, Good Morning Magnolia, Woven Heirlooms

I also couldn’t leave the Detailed Band die set alone again this time either. They are just toooooo goooood. I’m sure my class girls are rubbing their hands, knowing they will be using this set soon enough!!

Here I used the largest of the dies and cut it out of Gold Foil. I used my element to help position my stamping. I went with the smaller flower in the Magnolia set, I love the bud look. Here I stamped two in Crumb Cake ink and lightly coloured them in Blushing Bride ink using a blender pen.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Band Together, Good Morning Magnolia, Woven Heirlooms

The sentiment came from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set and I punched this using the frame from the same die set, it’s perfectly sized to coordinate of course. I wrapped the belly band tabs around the Whisper White layer and adhered it to my card base.

Keeping the card simple, I finished off with few Metallic Pearls in Gold.

Next up in the hop is the incredibly talented Denita.

CTC234 – Case Pressed Petals DSP

CTC-BlogBanner

Welcome back to another week of Caseing the Catty blop hop and challenge, welcome if you are joining me here or have hopped over from Tina.

As you can see, it’s another really cool topic for our CASE this wee. This week, the case is a combination challenge… but it’s a pretty easy one. So we are Casing the colours from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Paper, this means using any of these colours: Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz, Rococo Rose, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla. The second part of the challenge is to use inspiration from the projects featured on pages 73 to 74 of the catalogue.

CTC234

So here is what I came up with… a card and tag combination:

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Pressed Petals, Woven Heimlooms stamp set, Washi tape

The colours I have used are Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Rococo Rose and Very Vanilla. The pop of Merry Merlot comes from the Pressed Petals Washi tape.

My inspiration came from the pink tag in the left image and the card on the right:

The tag was completely different in layout, but what really captured and inspired me was the tag top… I love how the sample uses the Story Label punch!! I thought that was an awesome idea! Here I trimmed my cardstock to the width of the punch, about 58mm, and wiggled my cardstock in to one edge, so it only punched the one side of the cardstock.

RosePacker19-24b

I also really love creating vintage style projects…. It means, if you mess up, you can cover it up pretty easily with more ink and you don’t need to be precise with anything. Here, I have teamed up my projects with the Woven Heirloom stamp set, which is just perfect for this style theme.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Pressed Petals, Woven Heimlooms stamp set, Washi tape

Plus, I just couldn’t wait to play with those washi tape petals, so clever in design and so easy to put together and create an element to go on any project. Here I created two to feature on a matching card.

CTC233 – Case a layout

CTC-BlogBanner

I’m so excited to be back hopping along with some of my stamping friends here at Caseing The Catty. Life has been busy to say the least so I’m really excited to be creating with new toys from the 2019-2020 Annual catalogue.

CTC233

Hey… did you notice the theme of today’s CASE? A bit different huh? Yep, we thought we’d shake things up a little and add a twist to some of the inspirations we draw from from the catalogue. So this week we are looking at the projects featured on page 36 of the Annual catalogue. It’s the one that showcases the Magnolia Lane Suite of products and there are some lovely projects on that page.

Today, I decided to use the card that is featured in Mossy Meadow on the top left. When ever I like a card design and I want to CASE it, I first break down all the elements – in this case there is the Cardbase, an embossed layer and then a cluster of elements: some thread, a stamped and punched layer, ribbon, the flower element and then sentiment on top; the whole card is then finished off with some metallic pearls.

That’s kind of how I approached my card…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Band Together, Mosaic, Noble Peacock

I used Thick Whisper White for my card base and Whisper White cardstock that I embossed with the new Mosaic 3D embossing folder.

For my cluster arrangement, I decided to work with the new Band Together bundle … I think I’m going to have some fun with this bundle!! I started with punching one of the dies out of some of the gorgeous Noble Peacock foil pack – here I used Pretty Peacock.

These dies are really interesting as they have tabs on the sides so that they can wrap around a layer and tuck beneath or they can work like a belly band. Here I snipped off the bands, following the pattern to complete it as it’s own stand alone element.

151076G

I punched a second one out from Whisper White cardstock and used the inner piece to layer for the sentiment. I added a strip of snail adhesive to the back of the sentiment, and adhered some silver thread and set that aside. Using my foil element, I was able to position the ribbon first, then adhere the sentiment first and foil over the stop, so the thread is behind everything.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Band Together, Mosaic, Noble Peacock

I added a couple of the leaf elements from the same die set to the top left and finished off with some silver pearls. I love how the foil element just pops off the card against the neutral tones of the other elements.

I’m sure I’ll be back with more from this gorgeous set, but right now next up on the hop is the amazing Lauren Meiklejohn.

Paper Pumpkin: HUGS FROM SHELLI

Shelli Kit.jpg

Paper pumpkin is a full inclusive kit, that is available only in North American via subscription. However Stampin’ Up! wanted to share this very special kit with everyone.

This special one-off Paper Pumpkin kit will be available to purchase from today, Wednesday, May 15th and features all the supplies you need to make 12 note cards (3 each of 4 designs). Stamps, ink and adhesive are also included.

We have one sneak peak card to view and this shows us that it is vintage in style and uses similar design themes of the Bird Ballard suite, coming in the next Annual Catalogue this June. However the other three designs are a surprise, which is a common theme for Paper Pumpkin kits.

SHELLI_Card

Whilst all crafters will enjoy the simplicity of this style of kit, this really is a great place for BEGINNER crafters to start their papercrafting journey. I also think these would make great presents too!

The only additional item needed is Clear Block D (item 118485) to go with your stamps.

The kit is $37 (delivery is additional) and available from today, while stocks last.

Contact me to order your kit today or shop online.

CTC228 – Favourite Retiring stamp set

CTC-BlogBanner

Favourite retiring stamp set….. Hmmm…. It was a hard one, I mean there were so many stamp sets I have, that I hadn’t finished with yet, it really was hard to pick a favourite. That’s the theme for this weeks Casing the Catty hop – favourite retiring stamp set. So sit back and take a look at the inspiration the crew has for you this week.

CTC228

I settled on the background stamp Marbled. It’s one I have had for a while but haven’t used in a while either. I think that’s why it’s retiring :(. But I love how you can use it for some many different occasions when themed up differently too – it could look like icing when teamed up with birthday cake type stamps.

I just let the stamp set itself inspire what I created today. Being a big background stamp, I went for something dramatic by stamping it in some black ink and teaming it up with Bermuda Bay and some Rose pink accessories. Keeping the stamped image as the only featured black colour, makes it really stand out.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Marbled, Detailed with Love, Rose Gold Shimmer Paint

After stamping, I added some splatters of the lovely Rose Gold shimmer paint – featured in this months special, Everything is Rosy product medley. I simply picked up paint with an empty Wink of Stella brush and used the lid to flick the tip thus splattering paint across my stamped image.

Once dry, set about finishing my card…. I added some mini striped ribbon before layering over some Bermuda Bay cardstock for the base.

I punched a doily and some leaves from the Rose Glimmer paper and larger leaves from Whisper White and Bermuda Bay cardstock. I layered them until I was happy with the arrangement. My sentiment is from the Detailed with Love stamp set, another retiring stamp set. I embellished the corners with the Trio Corner punch and some of those gorgeous Pink Gems, which I seriously have not used enough!

I love how it turned out.

Next up in the hop is our resident cat lady… Peta Stephen.

Colour INKspiration – CI55

colink-blogbanner-v3

Wow… just look at that inspiration image…

CI55

There is so much to like in this image, from that gorgeous bed head (I’m sure it’s the colour!), that cute “coconut” cushion that just make me what to jump on, or that gorgeous little bunny sitting quietly on the side table.  Welcome if you are joining me here or if you have hopped over from Denita.

For this challenge, we have the following challenge colours to play with – Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist, Grapefruit Grove, Rich Razzleberry and Smokey Slate. We can choose 3 or more to play with. So I went with Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo and Smokey Slate.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Just Because

Here I created a simple Mothers Day card for this weekend. Using the Just Because stamp set, I stamped my image in Memento Black and coloured it a little with Flirty Flamingo and Smokey Slate Stampin’ Blends. I used the Colour Lifter to push out some of the gray to lighten it. I fussy cut this image out so that I could make it a floating feature.

I layered this over some Whisper White cardstock which I cut at an angle. This sat over a coloured paper doily in Flirty Flamingo and these over the cardbase in Coastal Cabana, which I embossed with the Subtles Embossing folder.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Just Because

I stamped a simple sentiment, this one is from Tea Together stamp set and the hearts from Nine Lives. I finished off with a couple of small rhinestones for a little bling.

Next up in the hop is Rachel Palmieri.
