Colour INKspiration – CI35

colourinkspiration-banner

Welcome to the first Colour INKspiration challenge of this new Annual Catalogue. You maybe starting here with me or have hopped over from Nicole, either way I hope you enjoy the inspiration the crew have put together for you.

With the colour revamp that came with this Annual, we’ll be celebrating the new configurations of the collections during the first challenge of the month. The second challenge will be a regular colour palette to play along with.

This challenge we are focussing on the Neutrals collection. For this challenge you can choose any 3 colours from this palette plus you can add Basics (Black, Whisper White and Very Vanilla) and metallics of course.

CI35-130618

Today, I have used Merry Merlot, Gray Granite and Sahara Sand from the Neutrals collection and teamed them up with some Basic Black and Silver. Merlot and Granite are both new colours to Stampin’ Up!, merlot is a lovely red wine kind of hue and Granite is warm gray.

Here is the card I created…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Broadway Bound, Broadway Lights, Art Deco

I used the Broadway Birthday bundle, which includes Broadway Birthday stamp set and Broadway Lights Framelit set. This set just screams Art Deco to me and I just love that style. I particularly enjoy the architecture features that adorned that era. I am busy creating in that style with this set just now.

On this card, I started with the angles… I decided on my black card base. The first layer I went with was Merry Merlot – I decided on the angle I liked and then covered the back with some Multipurpose Liquid Glue. This is a good option as it gives a little wiggle room to get the angle just right. Once adhered, I flipped my card over and trimmed off the excess cardstock with a blade knife. Next was the Sahara Sand layer – again, getting a visual on the angle, covering the back with some liquid glue, adhering, flip over the card and trim the excess.

Once this (the hard part!) was done, it was easier to see how the rest would come together – some silver mini sequin trim helped soften the transition from one colour to the next. I created the main element by die cutting the “light box” from Basic Black cardstock and layering some Silver foil behind it, so they looked like bright lights blinking away.

RosePacker18-41b

I stamped the sentiment, which is the main feature and layered the “light box” over it, trimmed off the excess cardstock and adhered the element on with some dimesionals.

I finished off by stamping some simple birthday elements in the bottom left in Gray Granite ink.

As I sat back and admired my creation, I thought I should have rounded off the corners!! Curves and rounded corners are an identifying feature of Art Deco style…. Well, that just means there is more creating to do!

But I’ll leave that idea for another time, next up in the hop is the wonderful Julia Quinn.

CTC176 – Favourite 2018 Occasions Catalogue project

CTC-BlogBanner

Here I am back with my regular blog spot with the Caseing The Catty crew. Welcome if you are starting here with me or if you have hopped over from the talented Peta.

CTC176

Today we are featuring our favourite projects from the Occasions catalogue. Like last week, how do you choose a favourite when the Stampin’ Up! catalogues are filled to the brim with amazing projects. So I went back to the first thing that caught my eye all the way back in November when I first saw the Occasions catalogue.

Occ18_p15c_Perennial

This card here, featuring the Perennial birthday stamp set. I think it was the drama of the black ink against those lovely bright colours. I like a bit of drama.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Perennial Birthday

Here I made my own version copying the sample closely. I always admire projects like this, where the stamps are pieced together to create a gorgeous arrangement. It wasn’t as hard as I first thought it was going to be, I just stamped around in a circle so to speak in Basic Black Archival ink. I prepped my sentiment first, and used that as a guide as I stamped my flower arrangement.

Once finished, I grabbed an aqua painted and used it like a paint brush, rather than flooding the project with water. Picking up some ink from the lid of my ink pad and painting to colour my stamps. I wasn’t too fussed if I went outside the lines here and there either.

RosePacker18-23b

I stamped a few extra pieces, which I fussy cut and adhered with some dimensionals.

I had a little play with these stamps to create a more simplified card, but still bright and fun.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Perennial Birthday

I used several of the flower and leaf images to create a little scene like they popping out of a flower box. I love that sentiment beneath the main one too. So sweet.

CTC168 – Petal Passion

CTC-BlogBanner

Oh… I just loved this suite from the minute I saw it in the Occasions catalogue. I mean it’s black and white, with lovely watercolour texture to the stamp imagery and DSP. The options for projects with this one is endless as you will see as you hop along with the Caseing The Catty Crew.

CTC168

Welcome if you have just joined me from Sandra or if you are starting here with me. There are so many ideas from these pages in the Occasions catalogue, you are bound to pick up a few.

This suite being black and white, has people deciding whether they like it or not. Me… I love that you can put any colour with it. Even some of the dark black pages of Designer Paper, can be teamed up with colour to life the heaviness. Here is my idea for you…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up, Petal Passion

Here I have created two cards using the same design, one is basic creation and the second is a little more stepped up. But both show using one of the black based sheets of the Designer paper sparingly. Which is always a great approach when using strong colours. I don’t mind bold and dramatic most of the time, but sometimes you need to allow other elements to shine and this is a great way to achieve it.

I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock down to 100mm x 142mm to work on, rather than working directly on to the card base this time. The strip of Designer paper is 25mm wide on both cards. The card bases are Whisper White Thick cardstock.

On the basic layout card, I stamped the leaves from the Petal Palette stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink twice in two different directions, then layered the DSP over the top – adhering it so it hugged the left edge. I added my sentiment in Basic Black Archival ink and topped it with my flower arrangement.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up, Petal Passion

For this flower arrangement, I stamped the images in Basic Black archival ink and simply coloured them using markers. I punched them using the coordinating die.

With the stepped up version of this card, I replaced the stamped leaves with die cut ones from the Petal & More thinlit die set. I cut these from the green glimmer paper from the Magic & Myths pack. I adhered these using some Fine Tip Glue and then layered my designer paper the same way to the left edge.

RosePacker18-17c

I added some of that gorgeous Coral shimmery ribbon, which is a Sale-a-Bration exclusive available at the moment. The flower arrangement over the top is again stamped with Archival ink, but this time I coloured with Stampin’ Blends. Colouring with alcohol markers just gives a different look and a much richer shading. These were adhered on with Dimensionals to give some height.

If you started the hop from our Challenge group, then technically I am last in circle of hopping.

But if you are mid hop, next up is Judy May.

CTC167 – Sale-a-bration

CTC-BlogBanner

There are so many ideas in those two Sale-a-bration brochures, it’s no wonder the Caseing The Catty team are back here again with more inspiration for you.

Welcome if you are starting here with me or if you have hoped over from Rachel.

CTC167

This week, I’m on the simple train… funny, but simple. I’m so in love with the cute Tutti Fruitti cards and envelope pack in the Sale-a-bration exclusive items selections this year, on page 14 of the SAB catalogue. They are just so fun, I think it’s the colours. But the fact that you get pre-printed, cut and score card bases with coordinating envelopes, ready to decorate, is just winner.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Birthday Witt, Sale-a-bration

I teamed these up with some other products in the Occasions catalogue today – some Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper and my funny favourite – Birthday Witt. At stamp club last month, we laughed about how funny it would be to team these two together. Today, I decided to try it out.

Keeping things simple, so that the fun would shine through, I created these…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Birthday Witt, Sale-a-bration

Taking the fun play on words about dieting, I added some yummy donuts and cookies to the mix.

So that the donuts would shine through, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink and cut them up into individual pieces. I adhered them on with some slight fun angles mostly flat but some with dimensionals for interest.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Birthday Witt, Sale-a-bration

I thought this would be a great way to add more fun add add a little more witt by highlighting an appropriate one that would match the recipient of the card. Here I used Lemon Lime Twist ink over the Memento Black to highlight the “Carb free”, this could go to a carb free diet person, just make sure they have a great sense of humour!

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Birthday Witt, Sale-a-bration

To finish off I added some Tutti Fruitti adhesive back sequins for a touch of colour.

CTC165 – Sale-a-bration

Caseing The Catty is focussed back on Sale-A-Bration again this week. With so many lovely ideas in that little catalogue, I’m sure we’ll be back again soon. Welcome if you have just joined me from Rebecca’s blog or if you are starting here with me.

CTC165

Today, I have a quick little share with you and a great little tip. But first up my inspiration came from this project in the Sale-a-bration catalogue.

SAB18_p15a

Those panda’s a really cute but I went for a different set today. It’s one of my new favourites… Birthday Wit!

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Birthday Witt

Here I have teamed it up with Bubble and Fizz DSP pack, which is a Sale-a-bration exclusive. Love the colours in this pack of paper. I used two different patterns to create the flag ends. I didn’t want to cover up the pattens to much, so I left off the backing circle, which appears behind the panda. Instead I used the bubble speech stamp in the set which gives that same effect. I felt it needed a little more Calypso Coral to match in with the Sentiment, so I added another thinner flag across the top.

When deciding on the widths of my flags, one needed to be wider than the Triple Banner Punch’s widest one at 50mm. Normally I just reach for my paper snips and do these manually. However, I had this idea the minute I saw the Tailored Tag punch in the Occasions catalogue. I knew I would be using this punch for creating flag ends too.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Tailored Tag Punch

Sliding in my paper, cut to a width of 60mm, I aligned the sides to the width of the punch and pushed my paper in about half way through the face and punched. Wa-la… it worked, flag end to a wider size strip! I was pretty pleased.

Next up in the hop is the clever Peta Stephen.

CTC163 – Sale-a-bration

CTC-BlogBanner

The Caseing the Catty team are celebrating Sale-a-bration again. I hope you all have been earning a few of these amazing free items and are now ready for some more inspiration. Welcome if you are joining me from Monique or if you are starting here with me.

CTC163

Sale-a-bration this year is awesome and with so many great items to choose from, it does makes choosing what to create with a little harder! But I couldn’t go past the Lots of Lavender stamp set this week. (After all, I did promise this one next!)

I took my inspiration from page 4 of the Sale-a-bration catalogue, with these great ideas.

Here is what I created.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Lots of Lavender

I started with the box. It’s been a while since making a gift box and the idea of changing it up a little popped into my head. Here I have teamed up Painted With Love Specialty designer series paper with Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate. I made the box myself… I’m sure there is a template out there somewhere, but this is why I love papercrafting, it ties in beautifully with my graphic design skills. I just make these things myself – sketch it out first, work out my measurements and cut my own template. The design industry is very digital orientated now, which is great, it just means I very rarely get to make mock-ups anymore, hence this… papercrafting, my other love.

So I started by creating a basic oblong tube shape with the printed acetate. Then made a top and bottom from the DSP, kind of like making a box and cutting it in half and sticking it to the ends of the acetate to tube.

I made the bottom shorter than the top as I knew I wanted to add decorative elements to the bottom. I didn’t want them to start to high. I stamped the Lavender in Fresh Fig ink and coloured it using markers in Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum plus a little Pear Pizzazz for the leaves. I coloured the ribbon in Calypso Coral to contrast with the purple tones which coordinates with the DSP.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Lots of Lavender

I wrapped some Whisper White Organza ribbon around the bottom edge and topped that with some Sweet Sugarplum tinsel twine. Tucking in the lavender behind the organza bow. I filled the box (for now) with that fabulous Ready Shreddie. OMG… you get sooooo much in one pack, it goes such a long way!

As I sat back and admired my handy work, I decided it really needed a matching card. So I went with the card design featured below the box that initially sparked my interest.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Lots of Lavender

I started with some Shimmery White cardstock and water coloured a background with some Sweet Sugarplum ink and aqua painters. Once dry, I adhered this to a panel of more of that lovely Painted With Love specialty DSP. Then adhere this onto a cardbase in Fresh Fig.

I stamped another bunch of lavender and coloured this similarly to the box so that they match. I adhered this over the top of some of that lovely White Organza ribbon from the Petal Passion suite. Adding a gold tassle, from the Eastern Palace suite, tied with a little more of the Sweet Sugarplum tinsel. The sentiment is from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set, stamped in Fresh Fig and punched with the Classic label punch.

These were really fun to make and I was pretty happy with how they turned out. Next up in the hop is Peta Stephen.

Colour INKspiration – CI26

colourinkspiration-banner

What a colour combination we have for you this week here at Colour INKspiration. If you have joined me from Elizabeth, welcome, I hope you have been enjoying the inspiration so far.

If you are starting here, we have a cool colour palette this time. (Pardon the pun – LOL!). When I first looked at this colour combination, I liked it straight away, but new it would have me thinking. This challenge we are playing with greens…. Tranquil Tide, Bermuda Bay, Emerald Envy and Sahara sand.

CI26-240117

What I like about these kinds of colour combinations is they are different shades of the same hue essentially. This allows you to create some really interesting effects. It also allows you to do what I have done here … take something that could potentially be really busy and make it easier on the eyes. Check out my party hat…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Party Hat Birthday

I just loved the sample in the Occasions catalogue and I really just wanted to make something similar.

And so I did.

And I’m really glad I did because it was just fun. Fun to create and fun to make these colours work as I think they lend themselves to cards for our “Men-folk”. So I gave the Party Hat Birthday bundle a boy look.

I love how you can stamp a Party Hat flat or you can use one of the dies in the set to cut out the elements which you can use for a 3D effect or on another project altogether. I also love this new banner for sentiments. Luuurve that flowing flag look.

RosePacker18-09e

Here I stamped my first layer in Tranquil Tide, it’s the one with all the little elements… streamers, lollies and dots. Next is Emerald Envy, here you can see Bows, Stars, Cakes, presents, ice creams, lolly pops and other yummy stuff. Last is Bermuda Bay, these are the raised elements… presents, cupcakes and hats.

I used my Stamparatus to make lining up these three stamps easy. When using my Stamparatus, I find myself either rotating it so that one leaf is at the bottom and one at the side, or I just utilise the space at the bottom of the stamping plate like this…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stamparatus

Yes, my magnets have broken… waaa… but now I have four to work with… Yay! Moving on…

This is because closer to the hinges, sometimes the stamps don’t quite reach down far enough to catch all the paper. It’s just a slight limitation with the manufacturing process BUT not really a problem at all. You don’t have to use it with one hinge at the top anyway, afterall the stamping plate is square. So to clear the space completely, just use the other end! And if you can work like me, with a rotation, try stamping like this….

For this particular stamp set, working with the stamps rotated didn’t hamper my ability to fit them together. I think as long as the outside lines of the shape is there, the inside can look however it is stamped!

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Party Hat Birthday

I finished off my Party Hat with one of the clear Faceted Gems, which I coloured with my dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend marker. I love how you can coordinate all your Rhinestones, Pearls, Gems and other embellishments by colouring them with Blends.

So what is Brushos?

If you’re a social media/blog hopper, you must be wondering what all this talk about Brusho’s is?

It’s a colouring tool new to the Stampin’ Up! range. These are in the form of crystal powder which, when mixed with water, gives your projects the most radiant colour.

The thing with Brushos is, there are different ways to mixed them with water which gives you the most amazing effects. This is where the magic happens, as no two projects will turn out exactly the same – similar maybe – but not the same. It’s just so much fun.

So I will cover off different ways you can play with Brusho’s with the different projects I create in the coming weeks/months. But today, I will talk you through how I created this project….

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Brushos, Five for all

It was my first play with Brusho’s colour crystal powders. The Stampin’ Up! ones come as a pack of 5 colours – Brilliant Red, Gamboge, Yellow, Moss Green and Prussian Blue. I know what you are thinking… “these are not Stampin’ Up! colours!” and you’re right, they are not. They are the most similar in the Brusho’s range to Stampin’ Up!’s and when mixed with water you can vary the strength of the colour to match them as well, if you really needed to. But I think they work well as they come.

So how I created this was quite simple really and fun. Using shimmery white cardstock, I sprayed one side with some water using a Stampin’ Spritzer bottle, then flipped it over. Water and paper really don’t like each other much so it started to curly. But that’s okay, as I then sprayed the other side with a bit more water, and it started to uncurl. This second side is the side I worked with. Using my fingers, I spread the water out, to cover the paper as a base layer and then sprinkled Brilliant Red and Gamboge over the watered paper. You will see the powder instantly dissolved and begin to colour the paper. I sprayed some more water over the top, which pushed the sprinkled powder in different directions, creating an amazing fireworks display over my cardstock.

Next I used my Aqua painter to spread out and mix the powders. That gave me a base colour across the page. The strength varied as the water pooled in different placed. I sprinkled a little more powder over the top and left those in dots (rather than mixing in). These dissolved slightly, mixing in a little, but remained as flecks, giving a different look across my page. I let this dry for several hours before completing the rest of my card.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Brushos, Five for all

I trimmed down the coloured card to the size I wanted, adhered this to my Real Red cardbase. The stamp set I used here, is one of my favourites. It’s called Five for All and is a sentiment only stamp set, designed to work on their own or go with other graphic elements from other sets. The sentiments are quite witty too – my kind of humor!  The one I used here, suited the recipient of this card, as there was a funny post on Facebook about returning to “pretend she’s in her 20’s” after her birthday. PERFECT stamp!

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Brushos, Five for all

I framed this with a scallop circle from the Layering Circled framelit sets in real red cardstock and zig-zagged some stitched edge ribbon, in Pumpkin Pie, beneath it. Topped it with some Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon for contrast. I finished it off with two balloons from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. I stamped them in Tranquil Tide on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.

Stay tuned for more of my Brusho’s playtime soon.

CTC160 – Picture Perfect Party

CTC-BlogBanner

Welcome to 2018 with the Caseing The Catty Crew. I’m sure you will enjoy this blog hop as the team and I  kick off with the new Occasions catalogue.

We are starting at the beginning of the catalogue Pages 4 to 9, with the Picture Perfect Party Suite.

CTC160

Today I have taken inspiration from the cute little Peekaboo Peach box at the back of the main image. This one…

Occ18_p004a

I have adapted it to work on the front of a card with the Birthday Wishes For You stamp set. I love this little stamp set and I was a little worried it was going to get left behind. It’s such a great stamp with big bold letters and its outline style is great for all our wondering colouring tools.

Here I have broken down the project in the image to: a Peekaboo peach cardstock base; a layer of the Picture Perfect Party 6×6” paper stack; Whisper white cardstock with the sentiment and candles printed on top; and behind that is the Lemon Lime Twist flags poking out the sides.

As you can see, I have adapted those elements to form the main features of my birthday card design.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect Birthday, Birthday Wishes for you

There are a couple of exceptions though – my order of the paper stack hadn’t arrived yet, but lucky enough the stamp set has a number of elements I could make my own creation with. Here I have stamped a couple of the stamps in several of the coordinating colours to fill that space. There are so many cute little stamps in the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set, allowing you to create a range of decorative elements, here I have just stamped one of them on the background card layer.

I also added some Berry Burst (favourite InColour just now!) cardstock framing the main sentiment, to help echo that colour. In the catalogue image, the box contains Ready Shreddie in Berry Burst, which serves the purpose of echoing the colour, but the new Ready Shreddie wasn’t quite going to work on my card. (Hmmmm… or will it! I have just had an idea… you will have to stay tuned!)

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect Birthday, Birthday Wishes for you

As ribbon adds a lovely texture, I added a touch behind my Lemon Lime Twist flag. It’s the new Berry Burst metallic edge ribbon. Like so many demonstrators and customers alike, I was dying to get my hands on that gorgeous Paper Ribbon in that suite, which was used in the decoration in the left corner of the box. I was quite disappointed to learn of manufacturing issues which led to Stampin’ Up! making the tough decision to remove it from the supply. Meaning this product will not be available to us to order at all – waaa ☹.

I have kept the candles and flames stamped over the sentiment and added some Wink of Stella to the birthday letters – not that I have ever been able to photograph how beautifully sparkly that is! To finish off I accented the Happy flag, stamping it in black ink on peach cardstock, fussing cutting it and using some mini dimensionals to pop it up.

Next up in the hop is Rachel Palmieri.

Colour INKspiration – CI21

colourinkspiration-banner

Welcome to Colour INKspiration for this fortnight, whether you have joined me from Jackie Aitken or starting off here with me, the team has some great inspiration using a fun colour combination.

Here is the colour combination for this challenge:

CI21-081117

Peekaboo Peach, Soft Sky, Rose Red, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron.

Don’t you just love these colours? They scream fun and bright and cheerful to me…. So that’s what I aimed to create with my card.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Cool Treats, Frozen Treats Framelits

I went for a stamp set I haven’t used to waaaaay to long – the gorgeous Cool Treats and the coordinating framelit Frozen Treats. I thought this set just seemed to fit nicely with this colour combination…. and was fun… and bright… and cheerful!

I started by creating the inner panel first, starting with the yummy bowl of gelati… I can just feel summer coming, can you? I decided to layer this with Soft Sky cardstock and use some Soft Sky ribbon. I wanted to add some interest to the background, so I stamped some sprinkles in the different colours.

Once I finished my main elements there, I create the background on the cardbase. I decided on my sentiment first and masked off the bottom third and stamped ice-creams around the edge in coordinating colours to match my gelati.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Cool Treats, Frozen Treats Framelits

I just love all the little details in the Frozen Treats framelits, like this cute little spoon!
