CASE-ing the Catty So Very Much - #CTC111

It's Sunday again and CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop Time, this week we are featured the Sale-A-Bration promotion.

You maybe starting here so welcome or you may have come from Judy May and I like what she has created this week.

Don't forget these stamp sets, designer series papers, card kit, ribbons and card tin are FREE products when you spend $90 of Stampin' Up! products and that really is not difficult with all those new products in the Occasions Catalogue.

I have CASEd the card to the left which is an over sided card which would be prefect for groups to express thanks.

I created mine to a standard size for the C4 envelopes here in Australia.  I kept the same colour combination but used the Flourish Thinlits for the featured leaves in each corner and added a little flourish underneath the large white banner.

Stamp Set:  So Very Much
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz, Sahara Sand, Whisper White
Ink:  Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Lots of Labels Framelits, Flourish Thinlits

Colour INKspiration Suite Sentiments - #CI01

It's finally here the first Colour INKspiration Challenge.  I can not believe how many entries the Facebook group received for our Pre-Challenge.

The Crew is a team of talented Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that create projects based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches and I am so happy to be included in this wonderful inspiring group of demonstrators.

I have taken inspiration from the image as well as using the six colours this week, by creating an oldie but a goodie - an ice block card including a wooden stick.

I made the card measuring 4 1/8" x 3 1/2" in Peakaboo Peach and I have used the Envelope Punch Board to corner the edges, then sponged them and created more of a dimension with some sponging in the four corners.  I then took the Stampin' Write Markers and used the direct ink to the stamp in the individual colours for the sentiment and then layered circles colour to make it pop.

Stamp Set:  Suite Sentiments
Cardstock:  Peakaboo Peach, Tempting Turquoise, Sweetsugar Plum, Whisper White
Ink:  Blushing Bride, Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Mint Macaron, Sweetsugar Plum, Peakaboo Peach
Accessories: 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 2" Circle Punch, Envelope Punch Board, Ice Block Stick
