CTC 139

Hi Crafty people!  I have been a bit missing in action but hoping to get back into blogging on a bit more regular basis.  Life gets in the way!  I have made this card for this weeks challenge over at Caseing the Catty.  I love the Jar of Love set and the matching dies but haven't used it much as yet.

Here is what I have used:

Card/Paper: Basic Black Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, retired DSP.
Ink: Basic Black, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango
Stamps: Jar of Love
Accessories: Linen Thread, Mini Dimensionals
Tools: Big Shot, Everyday Jars Framelits, retired tag punch
(all products are Stampin'Up! unless otherwise indicated)

I have cased the layout of the coffee card on page 30 of the catalogue and wanted a simple card for a young boy.  It is popped up on dimensionals to give the jar a bit of a pop.

CTC 133

I can't believe I haven't blogged since January!  Life has been mad to say the least but I have some awesome new goodies from Stampin' Up! to play with from the new catalogue and I decided I would play along with this weeks Casing the Catty challenge.

This weeks challenge is to case a card from pages 86-101 which is the love and sympathy section.  I needed to make a card for my baby who is 18 this week.

I cased the card from page 97 of the catalogue.

And this is the card I created

I have used:

Card/Paper: Peekaboo Peach C/S, Whisper White C/S, Colour Theory DSP stack, Vellum
Stamps: Sunshine Sayings, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Dies/Punches: Sunshine Wishes, 2"Circle Punch and a very old SU heart die.
Embellishments: Copper thread, Glitter Enamel Dots

I have also spritzed some Lemon Lime Twist with the old spritzing tool and used some numbers that I coloured with my Lemon Lime Twist Marker (I had a blob of ink on my card so needed to cover it up!).

Thanks for popping by and don't forget if you would love any of these products let me know!

Gorgeous New Stamp Set!

With the launch of the new occasions catalogue that are a ton of new stamps and products to enjoy!  I loved this one as soon as I saw it and new I would have to add it to my collection.  It is called Yummy In My Tummy.  Super cute for all those kids cards I need to make.

Everything apart from the wooden number 6 and the googly eyes is Stampin' Up!  I have used some retired DSP paired with Old Olive cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Watercolor Wishes stamp set which comes with the Watercolor Wishes card making kit.  The embossing folder is also a retired one but was the best fit for this card.  The sentiment is popped up on Dimensionals.

Thanks for popping by and don't forget you can check out all the wonderful new goodies but the usual regulars by clicking on the link to my online store.

Crafty Cardmakers #175

The theme this fortnight is "Things That Go Bump In The Night".   There is a great prize up for grabs from Woodware Craft Collection as well.  I honestly have really nothing Halloween in my crafting stash - not a big deal here in Australia (as much as the retailers are trying their hardest to make it more popular!).  So my inspiration if my cat Shadow (yes he is black) who quite often goes bump in the night especially at 3am - the witching hour for him!

Here is what I have used:

Card/Paper: SU Basic Black, Whisper White, Orange (from my stash), SU Perfect Plum DP
Stamps: SU Window Dressing, SU Every Little Bit, SU Tiny Tags
Ink: Memento Black
Embellishments: Ribbon, Twine (all from my stash)
Tools: SU Chevron Embossing Folder, SU Tiny Tag Punch

We hope you can join us this fortnight for a great challenge and don't forget to check out all the awesome designs here.

Crafty Cardmakers #172

Hi everyone.  Welcome to another Crafty Cardmakers Challenge.  Marlene is hosting this fortnight and the theme is layers.  It was Father's Day here in Australia this last weekend so I have been creating some masculine cards.

Here is what I have used:
Card/Paper: SU Basic Black, Teresa Collins DSP
Stamps: SU Thoughtful Banners
Ink: Archival Black
Embellishments:  Striped Thin Washi Tape (from my stash), all other elements were cut from the DSP
Tools: SU Banner Punch

There are about 6 layers on this card and I have popped them up on foam dots to give it some dimension which is hard to see in the photo.  There is another star popped up in the centre.  

Hope you get a chance to play along with us this fortnight and make sure you check out all the wonderful creations here.
