CASEING THE CATTY #191 | NATURE'S POEM

 
Welcome to this week's CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. Our inspiration this week comes from the Nature's Poem Suite on pages 142-152 of the Annual Catalogue.  You may have arrived here from seeing Megan's gorgeous project if you're hopping along already. If you started here, welcome and please make sure to visit all the Design Team's blogs, the next button at the end of this post will take you on your journey. 
 
 
This week my inspiration came from the "you make me proud"  card below on page 152 of the Annual Catalogue.  

 
How cute is this card? The colour combination is so fresh and I love the layout!
 
 
For the background of my cards I used the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper and layered it up with ribbon, metallic thread, leaves coloured in Lemon Lime Twist ink, vellum leaves and topped it off with the sentiment.
 
 
My top version has the Poppy Parade Mini Striped Ribbon under it with "Especially for You" stamped in co-ordinating Poppy Parade ink.
  
 
While the bottom version has Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon under it with "Especially for You" stamped in Lemon Lime Twist ink. Both ovals have a Pool Party wash over them!
 
Which one do you prefer?

OSAT BLOG HOP - TIC TAC TOE

Today I'm sharing my projects for the OSAT Blog Hop! This month our theme is End of Summer Tic Tac Toe and I'm featuring the gorgeous Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper. Of course it isn't the end of summer for us here in the Southern Hemisphere but it's easy to get into the swing of things with summer on its way!
  

I've chosen the first column - Ribbon, DSP and Flowers - for my projects.
 

It's my friend's birthday today and I've created this with her in mind!

 
How cute is this mini clipboard? A piece of board has been covered in the Designer Series Paper using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon has been glued under the note paper to create a loop for the pen. Flowers and a leaf from the DSP have been fussy cut and added to the note paper.


"Just a Note ..." is stamped in Rich Razzleberry and is from the Better Together stamp set and the pieces of ribbon are tied around a Gold Library Clip.

 
The Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper is so pretty I wanted to cover as little of it up as possible! "Happy Birthday" is from the Botanical Bliss Stamp set and is stamped in Coastal Cabana. It has a Colored Doily (reverse side) attached to the bottom and several loops of Silver Metallic Thread under it. A strip of Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon, a bow in Whisper White Baker's Twine and three Clear Rhinestones complete the look!


I hope you have enjoyed my projects today!  Please use the links below to continue on the hop with us!  There'll be lots of inspirational projects - you won't want to miss any!

CASEING THE CATTY #190 | ARTISTIC IMPRESSIONS


Welcome to this week's CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. Our inspiration this week comes from the Artistic Impressions Suite on pages 127-141 of the Annual Catalogue.  You may have arrived here from seeing Peta's gorgeous project if you're hopping along already. If you started here, welcome and please make sure to visit all the Design Team's blogs, the next button at the end of this post will take you on your journey. 
 
 
This week my inspiration came from the "Happy Birthday"  card below on page 127 of the Annual Catalogue.  
This is such a pretty card!
 
 
Unfortunately I don't own everything in the catalogue so using what I had I created my version! My card base has been embossed using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and I've gone with a Calypso Coral colour combination including the strip of striped paper from the 6" x 6" Subtles Designer Series Paper. The Beautiful You stamp set has images with a similar feel to the ones in the Wonderful Moments stamp set. 
 
 
I stamped the image in Basic Black on Shimmery White cardstock and coloured it using an Aqua Painter and Calypso Coral ink. Around the outside is a wash of Pool Party.
 
 
Details like the wash over the sentiment add that something extra as do the strip of ribbon underneath it and the sequins scattered on the card.
 
Water colouring is lots of fun and I'm looking forward to sharing this technique at an upcoming class.
