Sing me a rainbow – CYCI #139

This week’s challenge at Can You Case It? had me a little stumped at first. It’s about a rainbow of colours. “What does that mean?” I found myself asking.

Can You Case It? #139

 

Then I worked it out… this week is a colour challenge and it’s about a grouping of colours. Think of it as a colour theme. You just get to choose what colours to make up that theme.

 

 

Here is my colour inspiration for the weeks challenge…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Detailed Floral Thinlit dies

Here I used three of Stampin’ Up!’s 2016-18 In colours to create a water colour background. I used Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo. Using Aqua Painters, I lifted the colours from the lid of my ink pad and splashed them semi-randomly over my cardstock. I knew what I wanted to achieve with this card so I created the black top first and used that as a template for my water colouring.

The background then became the feature when I overlayed the die cut top. Here I used the Detailed Floral thinlit dies on one piece of black cardstock. I place the two straight edges of the die facing each other, leaving a 15mm gap between them, which then created the raged top and bottom edges.

The gap created a lovely little space for my coordinating ribbon (Sweet sugarplum Ruche ribbon). I topped it off with a Hello from the Hello You thinlit dies and some tiny flowers and Rhinestones.

I can’t wait to see what you create with your chosen group of colours. All the details are on the Can You Case It? website. Entries close Midday Saturday (AEST).

Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
Rose.

Detailed Floral… for weddings

I have been focussing on these gorgeous dies over the past week. They are just so lovely and classy. They are specifically designed with special occasions like Weddings or Engagements in mind, but really the sky is the limit isn’t it.

I just love the water colour floral element used in my card in last post, it’s so delicate. The inspiration for that card and for today’s wedding card came from Stampin’ Up! latest catalogue – 2016-17 Annual Catalogue. It’s from the Everyday Occasions section on pages 76 and 77.

This stamp and die set comes with a series of coordinated products to help make your projects look amazing with minimal effort. Here I have made a Wedding card, using a gate fold. It’s so simple but elegant in white and touches of gold.

The inside has a little gold flower detail. I created this by punching out a flower from gold foil using one of the dies and placing the gold petals around the one of the gold circles from the metallic enamel shapes pack.

Finished off with a strip of gold foil at the top and bottom of my stamped section and some of that yummy Natural Trim with the gold stripe.

The Everyday Occasions section of the catalogue was featured over at CASEing The Catty this month, so I am entering this card in their monthly challenge.

I had this in mind when I designed this one for my Occasions Masterclass I hosted last weekend. All the class attendees loved it. Hope you enjoy the inspiration too.

Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
Rose.
