Stampin Creative Blog Hop Casing the Stampin Up Catalogue

It's time for the Stampin Creative monthly Blog Hop,  you may have pop here from Pip's fab creations HERE

This months hop is all about casing the catty,  Do you lack time,  has your Mojo gone on a summer hols,   Need a card in a hurry then casing is the way to go,.

You don't need to copy directly, you don't even need to have the stamps that have been used on the card or project,  I chose cards that I don't have the products that have been used  just took the layout and played about,..   I have 3 cases for you hope you like..

First up is a card on page 35

I used  the new Expressions Natural Elements, lovely wood veneer words, the DSP used is from the English Garden DSP , Crumb Cake Card Stock, finished off with Hello Honey flowers punch using the accents punch set, Linen Thread and Rhinestones. The embossing Folder used is the Large Polka Dot.

Next up is a card cased from page 11

For this one I used a set that I hankered a long time for, it first made its appearance in the U.S when photopolymer came on the SU Scene, the Endless Birthday Wishes,  I did a very happy Dance when I saw this in the catty,   I turned the design vertical and made the cake pop other than in a window....added some stamped sprinkles, I coloured the image using the blender pens for a watercolour effect, .......

Next up is one from page 42,  though I don't have this set, it will be in my basket in the very near future there is some amazing creations in blogland using it,
but for now I have again used the Endless Birthday Wishes set, I also wanted to show that if you like the Washi Tape effect but didn't have any to hand then you can just make your own with strips of DSP.........

Well that all from me for now, do pop back soon as I have been trawling the challenge blogs again, and you might just like what I have made...

But for now please follow on to Eimears blog HERE where some fab delights await you

Freshly made

Hello again,

Today's card is using the Freshly made sketch #FMS191 HERE a simple sketch with lots of scope I think, again. I have used the  stamp set Garden in Bloom again and the same colours, just because they were still on my table, I am excited about this new Annual Catalogue and I have loads of products on my very big wish list, Whilst i have used a retired colour in the Costal Cabana, you can swap it out for Pool Party and thats just as nice, ...

The speckles are from another amazing new set called Awesomely Artistic, I stamped the flower twice once on the mat piece and again on another piece of card and then cut and layered up using a dimensional, to get the textured look , I screwed the flower into a ball and then unfolded it before layering on top of the matted image....

Hope you like, see ya soon.....

Colour Me Subtle with Garden in Bloom Stampin Up Set

Hello There,

I happened upon a great challenge blog this week, called Colour Me Card Challenge, HERE and the challenge is the use of These fabulous colourways.

 When I saw this challenge CCMCC±76  I knew exactly what I wanted to make, I fell in love with a stamp set from our new Annual Catalogue called Garden in Bloom,
Now I loved Painted Petals so this one I was pleased to see since Painted Petals didnt make the new catty,....

 It was a bit of a faff to line up the 2nd part of the stamp I won't lie, but you know what I wasn't going to be too precious about it, it is a watercolour effect kinda of set so I just stamped and plonked and I just love the results. I hope you do too!

I used crystal effects to add droplets of water to the petals and leaves,
