ORNATE_GARDEN-Banner2_600px

Country Garden meets Vintage style… get your first look at the 2020 Annual Catalogue with this early release suite. If this is anything to go by… the 2020 Annual Catalogue, coming this June, is going to be awesome.

This suite available from today, through May leading into the new catalogue… and it’s just gorgeous.

As the name suggests, the suite has a lovely country garden feel with the feeling of an abundance of flowers in their design.

Here is a sample of what I’ve been playing with:

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Ornate Garden suite, Ornate Style bundle, Ornate Style stamp set, Ornate Layers dies

The suite features two bundles, Specialty Designer paper, Embossing folder, Ribbon combo pack and Gilded Gems (I’m such a sucker for gems…. I’ve bought three packs already!).

The suite is available a couple of ways:

  • Purchase the whole collection in one hit;
  • Purchase the bundles individually (saving 10%); or
  • Purchase your favourite items individually.

Once you have purchased your products and they have arrived… come back and get inky with me. Let me help get your creative juices flowing and make this card with me: the dimensions are at the bottom of this post, and the steps in my latest YouTube video….

CTC211 – All My Love

CTC-BlogBanner

Welcome to Caseing The Catty blog hop this week where we take our first look, draw our first inspiration, from the first suite in the Occasions catalogue – the All My Love Suite, pages 4 to 9.

You may have hopped over from Michelle or starting the hop here with me, either way welcome and I’m sure you’ll enjoy the hop. Don’t forget to load up your projects, with this theme, to our Facebook challenge group to inspire us all.

So, this week, I kind of went with a different line of inspiration…. In looking at the ideas and at the products in these pages, another idea hit me altogether. Focussing on the Forever Lovely bundle, I wanted to use those gorgeous roses edgelits from the Lovely Flowers Edgelit die set to make a window. Here is the finished card….

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Forever Lovely bundle, Forever Lovely stamp set, Lovely Flowers edgelit dies

I cut two of the edgelits around the card front and then used my paper snips to trim the middle excess cardstock out to create the window… here is what the card front looked like before I did anything else with it.

I just had to use some of that gorgeous awesome Lovely Lipstick foil sheets, in the window. So I cut a card front size piece and used Tear and Tape to stick it in.

Then I set about decorating the front and covering the snipped sections between the two die cuts. I stamped a lovely rose in Grapefruit Grove. The stamp set is a DistINKtive type, so it has that lovely varying tone when stamped. I added some foliage in Soft Seafoam and Granny Apple Green cardstock.

I wanted to try something a little different with the other end… there is a corner piece thinlit die in the set which you can use to decorate a corner of an element. Here I used it to help cover the snipped section which tied in well with the designed.

I then added the sentiment – punched a label from the Petals and More thinlit dies, stamped a punched Birthday Wishes and layered over the top. Then I added some die cut flowers from the die set and topped it all off with some Artisan Pearls.

CTC210 – Sale-a-bration

CTC-BlogBanner

It’s Sale-a-Bration time!

I love this time of year and this week at Caseing The Catty we are drawing inspiration from the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue. Welcome if you have joined me here or if you have hopped over from one of our new Crew members, Lauren!

ctc210

Sale-a-bration is a promotion that Stampin’ Up! run once a year and it’s when customers earn free products based on their spending or when they host a party or join the team – more information is here.

Today, I’m drawing inspiration from this Blue card… it’s on Page 14 of the SAB catalogue, and using the featured stamp set, Part of my Story.

I just loved this stamp and thought it was perfect to kick off Caseing The Catty with this year. So many people inspire us each day and don’t know that their actions have such an impact, like…. Stampin’ Up!’s concept designers who bring us the amazing samples in our catalogue several times a year; or like my sister-in-law who is changing her families eating habbits upside down to include less sugar, packaged and processed foods and eating whole foods for a healthier lifestyle; or like my best friend and the way she is raising her three gorgeous girls in to the amazing young ladies they becoming. They are all going about their day doing their thing which I find so inspiring.

I started by almost recreating the card as I see it.

Crumb Cake base card, with two layers of designer paper and the punched sentiment over the top. I did add a layer of cardstock to the base of the designer paper. This card design would be great for those times where we are short on time and need to whip up something.

Thanks to our extremely hot weather late last week, I had a little more time and stayed indoors a lot more! So, I had a little extra crafting time and I added a couple of extra layers.

Again starting with the Crumb Cake cardbase, I added a layer of Daffodil Delight cardstock beneath the Gingham Gala designer series paper. I love the double-sided checked pattern in this pack and today, opted for the larger check. Layering these together flat, I used dimensionals to fix to the base card.

I used some In Colour designer paper in Blueberry Bushel to contrast. Deciding to frame the sentiment, I settled on one from the Foliage Frame die set in Crumb Cake cardstock to match the base. I had a spare circle shape floating about, so I thought I’d put that to use. I first punched a 2” circle from the circle shape, leaving a frame, which I tucked behind the Foliage die. Then I layered the punched circle inside and overlayed the sentiment. This I stamped in Blueberry Bushel ink on some Daffodil Delight cardstock and punched using the Tailored Tag punch.

A card design for when you have a few extra minutes and some extra supplies.
