Case the Colours of the Kerchief Card Kit

CTC-BlogBanner

It’s Caseing The Catty’s new challenge blog hop week. Welcome if you are joining me here, or if you have hopped over from Siobhan. This fortnight is a colour challenge – you can use any combination of colours from the Kerchief Card kit.

CTC263

The Kerchief card kit is a free Sale-a-Bration item you can choose, when you spend $90 or more on regular products. The kit contains two card designs and features lots of colours to choose from. Today, I have focussed on the combination that makes up one of the card:

RosePacker-ColourSwatch-CTC263-01

But you can use any of these colours that make up the kit in any combination: Balmy Blue, Coastal Cabana, Early Espresso, Gold, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Petal Pink, Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, White.   You have two weeks to create and play too.

Here is my card.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Classic Garage, Garage Gears dies

I went with a male theme card and use the Geared Up Garage stamp set and coordinating Garage Gears die set. Here I used a card base in Coastal Cabana and punched out several of the large gears dies in Coastal Cabana cardstock to over lay the base, to create a background. I’ve done this quite a few times recently, it’s really effective. Then kept the feature elements towards the bottom.

Here I have stamped the car image in Memento black and coloured it using Night of Navy Blends. After die cutting it out, I layered it over some Gold Foil. I die cut the shape using a label die from the Painted Labels die set. I twirled some Gold metallic thread and fluffed it before attaching to the back with some Snail adhesive. Then I popped some dimensionals on the back to hold it in place. I used some glue dots to hold the gear elements that I die cut from Night of Navy used to adorn the corners.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Classic Garage, Garage Gears dies

Before adhering the element to the cardbase, I coloured some of the Metallic gold edge/Vanilla ribbon with the dark Night of Navy Blend to match my card. This went on the card base first, followed by the car element.

To finish off I added some Navy Rhinestones from the Peacock pack and I’ve always wanted to do this… highlight this section of the large gears die… I’ve always thought it looked like a steering wheel!

Colour INKspiration – CI71

colink-blogbanner-v3

Welcome back to another year of Colour INKspiration challenges. The design crew look forward to bringing you inspiration using select colour combinations. These will kick-off a challenge fortnight where you can create using this colour combination and load your creation to our facebook challenge group.

This year we have made changed the way we post our Crew inspiration – rather than a blog hop, we will load our creations directly into an album in the challenge group. Join the group and check out the crew’s images: #CI71.

CI71

This is our inspiration for this challenge….

Highland Heather, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party and Gray Granite. Plus you can add the basics of White, Black and Vanilla as well as metallics.

My card today features a sneak peak…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Tags in Bloom, Sale-a-Bration

This stamp set is new Sale-a-Bration set coming in the second release on March 2. It’s called Tags in Bloom and it’s a ripper. I love that it coordinates with the new Label Me Lovely punch from the Mini catalogue!!

I kept things simple for my first play…. Water coloured the background in Pool Party ink with an aqua painter. Once dry, I adhered this to a Whisper White thick card base.

I stamped the main image on some scrap whisper white and used the punch to create a window. Using the Stitched Rectangle dies to trim around it. I found the one that fitted three sides, then trimmed down the fourth edge in tight.

The stamp set comes with pieces to colour with, so I coloured the flowers in Highland Heather and leaves in Pear Pizzazz – with some I stamped off to create a lighter shade.

Stamping two separate flowers which I fussy cut out, I adhered these on the right. Trimming a small piece of the Granite ribbon, I folded this and layered it on the left. Then used dimensionals to adhere the frame down, over the water coloured background.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Tags in Bloom, Sale-a-Bration

I finished off with a sentiment from the set, which are sized perfectly to fit in the punched shape size. I stamped this one in Gray Granite ink. I just love this sentiment, it is one I write in cards a bit, so I’m very happy to have a stamp that says this!!

I hope you have enjoyed this inspiration, for more pop over to our Facebook Challenge group and check out the crews inspiration in Album #CI71. Then load up your creation using these colours. This challenge is open until Monday 24th February. Look forward to seeing you over on the group.

CTC262 – Sketch Case II

CTC-BlogBanner

It’s week two of inspiration for the current Sketch case challenge at Caseing The Catty. Welcome if you are joining me here or if you have hopped over from Peta.

CTC262

Here is the Sketch…

CTC262-Sketch

Here is my spin on it for this week.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Beautifully Braided, Braided Border punch, thank you

I know… it’s a little different from the sketch but the basis is there, three panels. I just happen to cut them with angles instead of straight, making triangles instead of rectangles this week.

I have featured the Beautifully Braided bundle which I’m really enjoying creating with at the moment. It lives on page 29 of the Mini Catalogue and comes with the Beautifully Braided Stamp set and Braided Border punch. Here I have coloured the main flower image with Stampin’ Blends – So Saffron and Mango Melody, which I fussy cut to make a feature.

I started with a card base in Soft Seafoam – love this colour in cardstock!! Then layered over the triangular panels from the Lily Impressions Designer Paper, which is a Sale-a-Bration freebie right now. (Click here to learn more about how you can get this paper for free).

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Beautifully Braided, Braided Border punch, thank you

I cut a braided border from Soft Seafoam cardstock using the punch. I threaded some of the Mini Striped Ribbon in Gorgeous Grape through the punched pattern and adhered it over the panels. Then layered the fussy cut flower and topped with the “thank you” sentiment from the stamp set.  I finished off by colouring some jewels with my Mango Blend and scattered them around.

Next up in the hop is the amazing Michelle.

CTC262 – Sketch Case

CTC-BlogBanner

Welcome back to another hop with the Casing The Catty Crew. Welcome if you are joining me here or have hopped over from Sandra. This hop marks the start of the new challenge that will run for the next two weeks.

We have a great and different challenge for you this time. This fortnight, we are drawing inspiration from this card featured on page 34 of Mini Catalogue. We are Caseing the layout.

CTC262

Aren’t those Koala’s just the cutest. You may wondering if we chose this card, featuring the Koala’s, on purpose. With the devastating bushfires that have swept across the amazing country that is Australia, more than half the population of these native creatures have been wiped out. Mostly likely they will be classed as an endangered species now, as hopes of recovery of numbers are very low. Fingers crossed our wildlife agencies work diligently to help them.

So in breaking down the sketch layout… it looks like this:

CTC262-Sketch

The main feature of the sketch is the three panels. You can choose to work this in so many ways and there are loads of ideas on how to do this in the hop. Plus we’ll be back next Sunday with more ideas to inspire you along.

Here is the card I created…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, From My Heart suite, Heartfelt stamp set, Heart punch pack

I went with a Love theme, featuring elements from the From My Heart suite (page 8 of the Mini catalogue). But don’t let the pink and red colouring of this suite fool you – this set can be incredibly versatile when you change up the colours or theme of the card.

I used the Heart Doilies as my three panel elements. Starting with a piece of Designer Paper from the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Paper – which is a Sale-a-Bration freebie available until March 30. See more here about Sale-a-Bration.

I chose a fairly simple design so that it blended into the background. Then layered my three heart doilies over the top to get an idea of how they would work. I stamped two of the small hearts from the Heartfelt stamp set, in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and fussy cut them out. I adhere them to a red and pink doily and adhere them on to the Designer paper, then adhere the third plain doily over the top.

I stamped the larger heart stamp from the same stamp set, in Flirty Flamingo and punched it out using the plain heart punch from the coordinating punch pack. Adhered this over the plain red heart.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, From My Heart suite, Heartfelt stamp set, Heart punch pack

I tied some Black twine, from the Country Club twine pack, around the designer paper twice and let the strands hang off on the left. I adhered the Designer Paper and heart elements to a card base in Basic Black.

Then finished off with heat embossing the sentiment and arrow in White powder on some Basic Black cardstock. I fussy cut these out tight and adhered them with dimensionals, and finished off with tying a bow with the black twine.

Next up in the hop, is my team mate Lauren Meiklejohn.

CTC261 – Case Sale-a-bration Catalogue

CTC-BlogBanner

It’s our regular Caseing The Catty Sunday night blog hop time and this weeks hop is focussing on the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. There are so many great idea in such a little catalogue, we have lots to fuel our creativity with. So sit back with a cuppa and enjoy the inspiration we have for you tonight.

CTC261

For this fortnights challenge, this week, I took inspiration from page 13 of the SAB catalogue. Remember this challenge runs for the next two weeks, so you have heaps of time to play along.

SAB-pg13_500px

I just love the gift bag with all the repetition of those flowers. So simple but so effective. I wondered what I could do with that idea. Here is what I came up with…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Smooth Sailing dies, Sail Away suite

It’s my Dad’s birthday…. Today!! He’s 86 and still going strong. He’s agile and works hard in his veggie patch and loves to go out on his boat and fish. He’s resourceful – can make something out of nothing and we affectionately refer to him as the Maltese-McGyver. (I know… I’m showing my own age here hey!)

So what better way to celebrate him than with the Smooth Sailing dies. I used the anchor, ships wheel and rope to create the repetitive feature pattern. I laid this over a base of Balmy Blue cardstock, which I stamped with the parquetry floor stamp from the Gallery Grunge set in Balmy Blue ink to add some background texture.

I die cut my pieces from Blueberry Bushell cardstock – can you believe it’s only 6 more months until this gorgeous colour retires in June – eek! I layered these over the stamped card base. Then finished off with a simple tie of thick twine and the sentiment.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Smooth Sailing dies, Sail Away suite

The sentiment stamp is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, new in the 2020 Mini catalogue. This is fast becoming my go-to set for sentiments, it has so many useful ones. I stamped this in Blueberry Bushell ink on some Bermuda Bay cardstock.

It’s simple but effective just like the sample gift bag in the catalogue.

Next up is the very creative Lauren Meiklejohn.

Colour INKspiration’s 3rd Birthday

colink-blogbanner-v3

Happy 3rd Birthday to Colour INKspiration –  #CI70. Can you believe it’s been 3 years already? I hope you have been enjoying all the hops along the way. Welcome if you are joining me here, or if you have hopped over from Nikki Spencer.

We are celebrating this milestone with a special hop of current and past Colour INK Crew members. The theme is Birthdays and we each chose our own combination of three colours to create and I can tell you… settling on just one combination is really hard. But for my colour palette, I settled on my all time favourite….. drum roll….  Coastal Cabana, teamed up with Lovely Lipstick and Highland Heather.

CI70 - Birthday Hop

Like many other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, I’m pretty much hooked on the Peaceful Poppies suite. If you are feeling like you are seeing it everywhere, I don’t blame you. It’s been hugely popular. It’s made up of two bundles – Painted Poppies which has all the imagery and Peaceful Poppies with has the sentiments; and has bunch of amazingly coordinated products to go with them. So many of the projects seen online have been in Black, White and Red.

However, Poppies come and in a range of colours and so I wanted to give them a different look with my chosen colours. Here is my card…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Peaceful Poppies, Ornate Frame dies

I water coloured the background with my aqua painter using Coastal Cabana ink onto some Shimmery White cardstock. After allowing that to dry, I stamped the group of poppies stamp in Memento Black ink, and using Highland Heather and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends, I set about colouring them in. I used the light and dark shades of the markers separately, rather than blending this time. This allowed for different shades of poppies.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Peaceful Poppies, Ornate Frame dies

I covered the bottom edge of the Shimmery White cardstock with some of the tri-colour ribbon. I used Tear and Tape to adhere to the card base which is Thick Whisper White cardstock.

I finished off with a Happy Birthday sentiment, which is from the Lovely Lady Bug stamp set, an exclusive SAB Host reward. I stamped this in Coastal Cabana ink on to some Whisper White cardstock. I used two different dies from the Ornate Frames dies set to punch and create the side decorations.

Next up in the hop is Tanya Bell.

Once you have enjoyed all the amazing inspiration in this hop, it’s your turn to choose your favourite 3 Stampin’ Up! colours to create a Birthday card with. Then pop over to our Facebook Challenge group and load up your creation using your favourite colours. This challenge is open until February 10th. Look forward to seeing you over on the group.

This year… we have a change to the Challenge component of our hops. We will still be doing a weekly hop, but the Challenge will run for two weeks. So you will receive double the inspiration for each challenge and then have more time to create and play along. Hope you enjoy this change and it helps you to play along. You don’t need to have a blog yourself… just create and load directly to the wall of our Facebook group. Join our Challenge Group here…

CTC-BlogBanner2

Our first hop and challenge for 2020 is all about the new MINI catalogue! Isn’t it wonderful? O. M. Gee… I’m so in love…. as much now as I was 10 years ago when I joined!

CTC260

So here is my first play with my new toys….

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, STampin' Up!, Outdoor Barbeque, Blends, Brick & Mortar EF

I really couldn’t go past the Outdoor Barbecue stamp set. My hubby is a smoker… of the BBQ kind just like the stamp in this set. It’s an artform for him – getting the perfect smoke-ring and tenderness in cuts of meat you would ordinary pass by at the butchers. So as soon as I saw this set I squealed in pure delight.

Here I kept the design simple and classic…. Card base of Blueberry Bushel, stamped around the edge in same colour ink is the T-Bone steak and fire flame stamps. I layered some Seaside Spray Designer Paper in the middle.

On the main layer of Whisper white cardstock, I stamped the Smoker BBQ image in Memento Black ink and used Stampin’ Blends, in Smokey Slate, to colour it. As the image itself, has shading already, it was easy to blend shadows in and I didn’t spend a lot of time getting it right… it looked good already! I added some Crumb cake for the side rest, and a dot of red, for the temperature gauge.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, STampin' Up!, Outdoor Barbeque, Blends, Brick & Mortar EF

By embossing the bottom third, with the Brick and Mortar 3D embossing folder, added some texture and making it look like it’s sitting on a bricked floor. I lightly sponged some Crumb Cake ink over the top to help define the texture of them.

I finished it off with a simple sentiment. I stamped the sentiment in Blueberry Bushell ink and punched the circle with the 1” punch. I layered this over a punched shape from the Ornate Frames dies set, which carried over from last year.

Next up in the Hop is the amazing Michelle Stradz.
