Colour INKspiration CI15 – A whole lot of thanks!

I have lots to be thankful for and it’s great to pass on that thanks with colourful creations.

colour_inkspiration_banner

Welcome to Colour INKspiration Challenge number 15 and this week we have a fabulous colour palette to work with courtesy of Nicole Wilson!

The crew is kicking off with a Blog Hop this evening and it is great to have Erin Gunson join us as a guest designer. 

If you have been hoppin’ along – you will have come from the awesome Mel Pagano. What a beauty of a project – didn’t you love how Mel did the sentiment? Awesome!

A reminder that if you are not part of the Colour INKspiration Facebook Group please do join the group. It’s a place where crafters from throughout the world can share their creativity all inspired by a Pinterest Inspired Colour Swatch.

And here’s this week’s colour swatch!

What another stunning colour combo – Elegant Egg Plant, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party! Love their boldness as they contrast each other, and the fresh sense these colours create. Also thought the texture on the shutters was interesting.

I had lots of customers Thank You cards to make after having a stand at the recent New Zealand Craft and Design Show which was held here in Porirua about 10 days ago. If you follow CreativeJax on Facebook or Pinterest you will have seen some sneak peaks late last week as I was creating 50 cards! I decided this colour combo was perfect for these cards.

Here’s the finished Thank You card …

 

… and here’s what several of them all lined up looks like!

I thought I’d quickly step you through my “product line” – so here’s a photo story of the process!

When I’m making multiples of a card I tend to break it into components, work on each part and then put them all together at the end.

I did the sentiments first. Words in Elegant Eggplant and flowers in Lemon Lime Twist onto Whisper White. 

The stamps are from the Hostess Stamp Set Background Bits.

My “Thank you” is positioned a little differently than the original layout. I could have stamped in two parts by inking up one word, cleaning and inking the other – being careful to line things up. Instead, I cut the stamp in two!

I can always stamp it as intended by placing them on the block in that configuration – but this gives me so many more options that I can use quickly!

Handy being able to flip the Circle punch over to see the sentiment and punch it out in the centre.

It was then time for layering the sentiments onto Pool Party – which had been punched out using the sunburst punch. I use the multipurpose glue so that I can move the layers and get them lined up evenly!

Here’s a whole lot of Thanks!

… and lots of dimensionals!

Plenty of cranks on the Big Shot to add some texture – love this folder – the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder

My details on the back before I put layers onto the card front makes for easier stamping.

On the layers of Elegant Eggplant and Lemon Lime Twist go – a great contrast to the Bermuda Bay card base.

You can see that texture here.

A piece of Bermuda Bay3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon for each

I really wanted these to be straight and in the same place for each – not so easy when the mats are at odd angles – so I used a strip of loose card to help me position them. 

I placed the strip at the bottom of my card – then added Fast Fuse and then adhered the ribbon onto the Fast Fuse. Easy Peasy!

And last – but not least – remove the dimensional backings and stick the sentiment to the front of the card.

Usually, these go into envelopes but this month I’m using some of the confectionery bags from the Thailand Incentive Trip. 

Are those cute! They were in the Hospitality Room every day – along with a range of treats! On the last day, we were told there were still lots, o take some home! I thought of thank you cards straight away!

A great way to thank customers – without whom I would not have earned the Incentive Trip to Thailand! Of course, all these orders are not towards Thailand – but rather they are helping me Stamp my way to Alaska!

Of course, all these orders are not towards Thailand as I earned that last year. Rather they are helping me earn the 2018 Incentive – helping me Stamp my way to Alaska!

And as of the beginning of this week, I am super excited to say that I have met the criteria set by Stampin’ Up! and have earned the 2018 Incentive Trip. So I will be cruising in Alaska in July next year!

 

Now hop on over to the talented Jacque Williams – who has a gorgeous card to share!

Colour INKspiration Challenge Blog Hop – Christmas in July

 
It’s a Christmas in July kind of a day today! 

colour_inkspiration_banner

Welcome to Colour INKspiration Challenge number 14 and this week we have a fabulous colour palette to work with courtesy of Tanya Bell!

The crew is kicking off with a Blog Hop this evening and it is great to have Cathy Pinchbeck join us as a guest designer. You’ll see her creation in a few hops.

If you have been hoppin’ along – you will have come from the awesome Elizabeth Gross. What fabulous cards Liz has made this week – as usual!

A reminder that if you are not part of the Colour INKspiration Facebook Group please do join the group. It’s a place where crafters from throughout the world can share their creativity all inspired by a Pinterest Inspired Colour Swatch.

And here’s this week’s colour swatch!

Isn’t the inspiration picture gorgeous?! Loving the combo of Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate, Soft Sky, Night of Navy.

I decided these colours would be a great combo for a Christmas in July card and wanted to finally ink up my Carols of Christmas stamp set.

The Carols of Christmas Stamp set is going to be an early release set that everyone will be able to purchase from the 1st August. So if you have any coupon codes from the current Bonus Days promotion, you’ll be able to use those towards buying this set!

Or – if you can’t wait, and want an even better bargain – you can get if for FREE as part of the Christmas in July Promotion from Stampin’ Up! Join Stampin’ Up! by purchasing the Starter Kit during July and not only will you get the usual great deal of $285 worth of product for only $189, but you will also receive and Essential Gift Pack from Stampin’ Up! (2 blocks, bone folder, paper snips, snail adhesive and grid paper) 

Join Stampin’ Up! by purchasing the Starter Kit during July and not only will you get the usual great deal of $285 worth of product for only $189, but you will also receive an Essential Gift Pack from Stampin’ Up! (2 blocks, bone folder, paper snips, snail adhesive and grid paper) and the Carols for Christmas Stamp Set! That’s an extra $145 worth of FREE product! Check all the details on my Join My Team Page

Back to the card … the sentiment is one of two large stamps in the Carols of Christmas stamp set and I’ve stamped it in Night of Navy onto Soft Sky cardstock. I’ve used the coordinating Card Front Builder Thinlits to cut out the border above and below the sentiments and then mounted it onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry card. You can see in the closeup below that I’ve heat embossed part of the sentiment with the Silver Stampin’ Emboss powder. 

You can also see the gorgeous ribbon I’ve used – the silver 3/8″ metallic edged ribbon and the silver mini sequin trim. I’ve also added a few loose sequins to my card front – adhering them with Fine Tip Glue. I like using the Fine Tip Glue for small embellishments as it dries to be non-tacky.

In the close-up below you can see that I have also used some Embossing Paste – which I am loving so much! I coloured it with a couple of drops of Smoky Slate Classic Ink Re-inker, mixed it well with the Palette Knives and then spread it onto a piece of Smoky Slate card stock.

It was smooth when I spread it on the card stock, but I stamped the Sheet Music Background stamp into it while it was still soft to get an impression of music in the paste. I thought this tied in with the carol theme of the sentiment! I hadn’t cleaned the stamp after stamping this background onto the card base in Rich Razzleberry. You can see hints of the Rich Razzleberry in the paste. I did clean it immediately and very thoroughly after getting embossing paste onto the stamp though – you wouldn’t want that setting hard onto a stamp!

You can see the background – tone on tone – n the photo below.

 

And if you are wondering about the extra sparkle on the paste, I sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter onto it while it was still damp. It’s been ages since I’ve used Dazzling Diamonds and I’d forgotten how much I love it. I can see some more experimenting coming happening soon with Dazzling Details and the Embossing Paste!

And last but not least – I usually carry something through to the inside of my card and today it was the Rich Razzleberry Sheet Music.

This Sheet Music stamp is absolutely fabulous, and I’m so pleased that Stampin’ Up! has added a music stamp to the product range!

Now hop on over to the talented Lou Kitzelman to see what she has created with these colours. I love, love, love the details in Lou’s card – especially that edge!

CASE-ing the Catty – Holiday Thanks

 
CTC138 Hello and welcome to CASEing the Catty – Sunday Blog Hop.  
CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop
Whether you’re joining the Hop here at CreativeJax with Jackie Noble, or if you’ve hopped on over from the talented Julia Quinn – a big WELCOME!
 
 This week the CTC Crew is CASE-ing the Holiday Section from the 2017/2018 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalogue – pages 112 – 125
 

What great timing to be CASEing the Holiday Section as there is a fabulous Joining Promotion from Stampin’ Up! which is currently happening!

Christmas in July – Just click on the image below to see what extra Gift (valued at $145) will be in your Starter Kit if you join by 31st July.

Christmas in July

If you’ve got any questions – just drop me an email at jackie@creativejax.co.nz and I’ll get back to you!

 

I’m still enjoying the polished stone technique and have used it again in this week’s CASE of the card on page 124.

I loved how the Stampin’ Up! artist has used thin strips of cardstock on the leaf – what a great idea. I will be trying that out myself soon.

I stuck to mostly the same colours and layout but achieved quite a different look in my card.The main leaf has Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry Ink on alcohol soaked cotton wool balls which have then been daubered onto the Glossy White Cardstock to get the marbled look.

Rather than the Embossing Paste in the background, I’ve stamped in Cajun Craze on the cardbase and added some Linen Thread to get texture. 

Here’s a closeup.

I used a square piece of Glossy card stock and cut the leaf using the Leaflets Framelits. I think these framelits and the co-ordinating stamp set –  Vintage Leaves – are my favourites in the whole catalogue! That’s quite a call – but I do love them so and find they are truly a versatile set!

Here’s what I was left with after I cut out the leaf 

And here’s what I made with this negative space!

The stamped sentiments on both cards are from the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set. The word cutouts (friend and hugs) are cut using the co-ordinating thinlits – Lovely Words.These are available as a bundle in the Annual Catalogue – so that’s a 10% saving compared to buying them individually.

Lovely Words Bundle

I’ve just snipped the words out of the oval and heart shapes.

I’m looking forward to being at the New Zealand Craft and Design Show in Porirua this weekend.

 

I’ve been having a huge destash of my craft studio and I’m selling all this at a BOGO sale at the Show – BOGO is Buy One Get One FREE.

There are soooo many “favourites” in the new catty but I’ve narrowed it down and chosen to use two new stamp sets for my card.

CASE-ing the Catty CTC133 Polished Stone

 
Hello and welcome to CASEing the Catty – Sunday Blog Hop. Tonight I’m featuring a returning favourite of mine –  Stampin’ Up! Glossy White Card! 
CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop
Whether you’re joining the Hop here at CreativeJax with Jackie Noble, or if you’ve hopped on over from the talented Liz a BIG hello!
 
 This week the CTC Crew is CASE-ing the Love and Sympathy Section from the 2017/2018 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalogue – pages 86 – 101.

The card I was drawn to CASE is one chosen by other Crew members too! It’s the grey card on page 101.

The layout is so versatile and can be used for a variety of types of cards.

There is a returning favourite of mine in the 2017/2018 Catalogue – Glossy White cardstock! I was really excited to see this product back in the catalogue as there are some techniques which you really need the glossy surface to get the best results.
One of these is the Polished stone technique and I used that technique in one of my class cards last week. 
Here’s a picture from one evening class with attendees and their creations.
 
And here is a closer view of the card we did.
In this card I used three colours to make the polished stone look – Island Indigo, Marina Mist and Pool Party. I wanted to achieve a water look as I could imagine relaxing in that chair beside the water. I’ve added a couple of Clear Faceted Gems for sparkle!
I hold several classes during class week and while I often don’t make a card at each of these – this week I could as I demonstrated the technique at each class.  
The technique involves soaking a cotton wool ball in Isopropyl Alcohol, adding a few drops of ink from the re-inker bottles in your colours of choice. Then  the Glossy card is dabbed with the cotton wall ball.
The ink sits on the shiny – non-porous – surface of the glossy card and as the alcohol evaporates, the ink “moves” on the paper – leaving interesting patterns. The colours are very vivid.
 
It’s hard to see the glossy – or shiny surface in the photo above – but you can see it a bit better below,
In this card I used Island Indigo, Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder. I also didn’t put so many dabs on the glossy card so there is some white space showing.
 
The ink dries very quickly using the alcohol.
  • To construct the card, once the ink was dry, I punched a circle out of the centre using the new 2 1/4″ circle punch. (I think this punch is going to get lots of use in this house!)
  • This was adhered to the front of the card so that the circle was stuck directly onto the card with Liquid Multipurpose Glue, while the larger piece with the opening was popped up on the adhesive foam strips.
  • I embossed the sentiment (and how cool is that sentiment – “Just Breathe”? – just saying) onto vellum.To get the blue embossing, I first inked up the stamp in Versamark, then before stamping – I inked it in Island Indigo – then I stamped onto the Vellum. Before doing anything else, I cleaned the stamp to avoid any chance of Island Indigo getting into my Versamark! After that I sprinkled some Clear Embossing Powder and heat embossed it.
  • The vellum banner was attached to the my card with a half-width piece of tear tape and the gorgeous deckchair from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits was adhered over this. Placing these this way meant the adhesive holding the vellum was not visible.
  • Clear or Gold Facetted Gems were used to embellish the card.
You can see these steps below.
 
These photos also show how varied the polished stone technique can be. Some have lots of dabs of ink appled – some only a few.
 
Here are the colour combinations the class attendees could use.
Island Indigo, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder
Island Indigo, Marina Mist, Pool Party
Island Indigo, Tranquil Tide, Elegant Eggplant.
I hope you enjoyed my creations this week – I sure had fun making them! and the bonus is that I have some new cards to post! Yay! 
 
Feel free to leave me a comment in the section below – I love hearing from you!
If you live in New Zealand and would like to purchase any of the products I’ve mentioned – I would welcome you as a customer.
 

Remember –  CASEing the Catty has a weekly Challenge hosted in our CASEing the Catty Blog Hop and Sunday Challenge Facebook Group. We’d love you to share your own project that takes inspiration from Love and Sympathy section of the catalogue. And remember when you CASE – you’re using the project as a starting place – you don’t have to have the same stamp set or colours necessarily – you could CASE the colour palette – but you could CASE the layout – or some aspect of the project.

Colour INKspiration Challenge CI11 – Eastern Palace Suite recoloured

 

  My card today gives the Eastern Palace Suite a colour revamp!

colour_inkspiration_banner

Welcome to the eleventh Colour INKspiration Challenge.

The crew is kicking off with a Blog Hop this evening and it is great to have Juan Ambida join us as a guest designer.

If you’ve been hoppin along – you will have come from the awesome Kelly Kent of My Crafting Journey. What a fab card!

A reminder that if you are not part of the Colour INKspiration Facebook Group please do join the group. It’s a place where crafters from throughout the world can share their creativity all inspired by a Pinterest Inspired Colour Swatch.

And here’s this week’s colour swatch!

I just love the content of the photo – as well as this colour swatch! I mean – mmmm – coffee and macarons – what a great combo and I think Eary Espresso, Marina Mist and Soft Suede are a fab combo too!

This was one of the cards I taught at my Eastern Palace Card Class over the weekend, and was inspired by a home deco item I’d seen by Kirstin Kreis. 

The card base is half a piece of Marina Mist A4 folded and I’ve matted the Very Vanilla onto Early Espresso with just a narrow mat showing.

There’s some “random” stamping in all three colours to form a background and some 3D embellishments.

These flower-like embellishments are made from two layers. The bottom layer is Soft Suede cut using one of the thinlits from the Eastern Medallions set which has been adhered to the card front. The top layer of Very Vanilla, was stamped in Marina Mist using one of the stamps from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set and then cut with another thinlit. 

The diecut from this second thinlit often has the inside ‘petals’ forward and the skinny outside part lower. I’ve done them the opposite way with the ‘petal’ part down and stuck to the Soft Suede underneath, and the skinnier part is raised up a little. You can see what I mean in the close-up below.

And those cute wee centres are cut from one of the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper. I just added some Marina Mist colour with a sponge dauber.

Adhering something so small used to mean I would be chopping up dimensionals – quite fiddly! Well, no more of that – the oh so fabulous Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals are perfect for this task!

How cute are they! And of course so useful too!!!

As usual, I’ve carried the outside imagery through to the inside of my card.

The Eastern Palace Suite is a stunner – but I really enjoyed working in a different colour palette. I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the suite in a different context. The Eastern Beauty Bundle is a great way to get the stamps and thinlits – who doesn’t like getting a 10% discount

Now hop on over the talented  Rachael Palmieri of Stampin’ Pals to see what she has created with these colours.

CASE-ing the Catty – CTC132 – Birthday Clouds with Embossing Paste

Hello and welcome to CASEing the Catty – Sunday Blog Hop. Tonight I’ve got a great project featuring the new Stampin’ Up! Embossing Paste! 
CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop
Whether you’re joining the Hop here at CreativeJax with Jackie Noble, or if you’ve hopped on over from the amazing Monique Fielder a BIG hello!
 
I hope you enjoyed the CASE-ing the Catty Crew’s blog hop last Sunday – our first using the new 2017/2018 Stampin’ Up! catalogue for inspiration. And trust me – there is a whole lot of inspiration between the covers of this catalogue! If you don’t have your copy yet, live in New Zealand and would like to receive your own copy in the mail – please email me (jackie@creativejax.co.nz). You can also view and order online – click HERE
I love that we are CASEing the birthday section this week. It’s not my birthday – but it sure felt like it was yesterday! Look what my friendly courier left for me!!! That’s BBB (Big Brown Box) Stampin’ Up! heaven! 
It was fun unpacking all these and sorting people’s orders ready for collection and reviewing my own purchases. I had a class in the afternoon, so had to be patient and wait until later in the day to craft with some of my new goodies. But it was definitely worth the wait!!!
 
One of the products I was super excited to see in the new catalogue – and was in one of those Big Brown Boxes was embossing paste (page 201).
 
It was one of the first things I wanted to use – after checking out the complete Memories and More collection and my new Love Today Planner – more on those later!
I just had to use it my project for today’s hop and the gift bag at the top right of page 84 was a perfect to CASE! There are some new decorative masks in the catalogue too – including one with clouds – absolutely made for this CASE!
Here is my project sitting beside the original in the catty.
Rather than a bag – I’ve made a card. I have kept most of the original design elements the same – just given it a revamp – including a whole lot more texture!
 
Now – back to that embossing paste.
  • It comes in a pottle which is easy to access the paste from. 
  • In addition to the paste, you can also purchase a set of three palette knives to assist with spreading the paste on your project.
  • I’ve used the small offset trowel to get the paste out of the container and spread over the cloud mask.
  • Then to add texture I placed the flat surface of the trowel on each cloud and lifted it directly upwards. This pulled some of the paste upwards and gave me my fluffy clouds!
As I was making “happy” clouds, I have not coloured the embossing paste, rather, I chose to leave it white. Depending on your project, and the effect you are wanting to achieve, you can definitely colour the paste. Just add a few drops of any coloured ink from a re-inker bottle.
 
Here’s my card again.
  • The balloons and banners are from the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper (DSP).
  • The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Soft Sayings Card Kit. It’s easy to forget about the fabulous stamp set that is in this kit – but it is a great set with a really good range of basic sentiments (Thanks, Happy Birthday, Congratulations, Miss You, Love you etc).
  • I’ve stamped the sentiment onto vellum in Versamark and Lemon Lime Twist and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. This is a fab way to get heat embossing in any of our colours!
  • The balloon strings are made using the Basic Black Baker’s Twine
You can’t really tell in the above photos, but the balloons are curved for a 3D effect. Here are a couple of close-ups so you can get a better view.
In these close-ups, you can see the texture of the clouds more clearly too!
And if you are wondering about the edge of the vellum – it’s punched with the new Ticket Tear border punch. I can see this punch getting a lot of use!
 
So – I’ve used quite a few new products in my project – and if you are anything like me – your wish list from the new catalogue is long one.
The most cost effective way to get a large amount of product at once is to purchase the Starter Kit – and you can read more about doing that HERE
 
Another great way to get FREE product is to get your friends together and place an order large enough to earn Stampin’ Rewards. 
And Stampin’ Up! is running a fabulous Hostess promotion for the month of June – extra Stampin’ Rewards for qualifying parties!
If you’d like to hold a Stampin’ Up! Party (aka workshop) with me –  have some spaces available for June. Contact me asap.

Alternatively – you can simply group your order with the orders of some friends and place these together. You will all then share the Stampin’ Rewards and any extra rewards. Again – contact me if you’d like to know more jackie@creativejax.co.nz
 
Feel free to leave me a comment in the section below – I love hearing from you!
If you live in New Zealand and would like to purchase any of the products I’ve mentioned – I would welcome you as a customer.
 

Remember –  CASEing the Catty has a weekly Challenge hosted in our CASEing the Catty Blog Hop and Sunday Challenge Facebook Group. We’d love you to share your own project that takes inspiration from Birthday section of the catalogue. And remember when you CASE – you’re using the project as a starting place – you don’t have to have the same stamp set or colours necessarily – you could CASE the colour palette – but you could CASE the layout – or some aspect of the project.

Just click on the Join Challenge Button below and you will find yourself at the Facebook group where you can add your project to the album for this week’s Challenge.

If you’re not a member of the group – just ask to join and we will see you there!

CTC Challenge

You have almost a week to create and join in. Just add your photo to the Facebook group before 7pm next Sunday to be included in the challenge.

Also – we are looking for some new Crew Members – so if you would like to put your name in the ring – please say so when you upload your project to the page.

CASE-ing the Catty CTC131 – Everyday Memories

Hello and welcome to CASEing the Catty – Sunday Blog Hop
CASEing the Catty Blog - CTC130
Whether you’re joining the Hop here at CreativeJax with Jackie Noble, or if you’ve hopped on over from the talented Kathryn Mangelsdorf a BIG hello!
 
Well it is finally here – the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue! It seems such a long time ago that I received a copy at On Stage in April! That’s one of the big perks of being a demonstrator – early access to the catalogue & being able to order some of the goodies before they are available to the public. But it has been a long time to keep it under wraps and I’m super excited that everyone can now see the catalogue – and get their hands on the fabulous new products. If you don’t have your copy yet, live in New Zealand and would like to receive your own copy in the mail – please email me (jackie@creativejax.co.nz). You can also view and order online – click HERE
 
 This week at CASE-ing the Catty we are CASE-ing a project from the Everday Occaions Section of the catalogue (pages 18 to 67). A lot of pages and a LOT of inspiration there!
 I have been itching to use the new Memory Keeping Product Suite – the Memories and More range and when I saw the image of the dog below on page 45 I knew I’d found my project to CASE! For me it was going to be some memories of “Cats in Hats”!
 
What fun – well for us humans that is! Maybe a little less so for our furry friends!
I’ve used a few new products from the “Color Theory Memories and More Card Collection” and the co-ordinating “Color Theory Product Suite“.  

Color Theory Memories and More Card COllection

There are four card collections in the Memories and More range – Color Theory, Petal Garden, Bundle of Love and Perfect Days. If you click on any of these links they will take you to the Online shop where you can see images of all the cards in each collection – a great way of seeing these collections in more detail than you will find in the catalogue.
 
The first three card collections are designed to co-ordinate with a matching product suite – what a great way to extend the use of the cards – hence the name – Memories and More! (You can check out the other co-ordinating product suites here Bundle of Love and Petal Garden )
 
I’ve used the co-ordinating Color Theory 6×6″ Designer Series Paper Stack DSP (below) and Glitter Enamel Dots in my CASE project along with 
 
I decided to use only the Dapper Denim coloured cards, DSP and dots as a contrast to the colours in my photos. 
But if you look at the cards – the Dapper Denim ones relate to winter – not quite what I was after. But the great thing about the Memories and More cards are that you can cut them, and adapt them to the layout you are doing. Here’s some images that show the cards I started with and what I ended up doing with them.
There are two of each cards in each card collection pack which is great when you want to make matching cards and embellishments. I cut the centre out of one of the centres of the “Let’s Stay In” card, layered up with matching DSP, another card and copper Trim to create a title card that worked with my layout. Fussy cutting the “Let’s” was a bit fiddly!  
From the second Let’s Stay in card I cut off the dotty edges to use on other cards & also behind some of the words.
The title was stamped with the Labeler Alphabet and the Brushwork Alphabet stamp sets.
 
Below you can see the components I used to create one of the cards. 
Cutting one of the 3X4″ diagonally and putting some DSP behind tied in the gradient of colour.
I’ve carried that diagonal cut through to the the words I put on each of the cat pictures.
The journalling card was adapted by covering the “winter FUN” sentiment with part of a 3×4″ card. 
I’ve also popped a few Glitter dots onto some of the cards – who doesn’t like a bit of glitter!
 
I have so loved using this Color Theory Memories and More card collection and am looking forward when the courier arrives this week with the other collections which I have ordered!
 
Stampin’ Up! is running a fabulous Hostess promotion for the month of June – extra Stampin’ Rewards for qualifying parties! If you’d like to hold a Stampin’ Up! Party aka workshop with me I have some spaces available for June. Contact me.

CASEing the Catty – CTC130 – Occasional Favourite Project

 Hello and welcome to CASEing the Catty – Sunday Blog Hop
CASEing the Catty Blog - CTC130
Whether you’re joining the Hop here at CreativeJax with Jackie Noble, or if you’ve hopped on over from the talented Judy May a BIG hello! You’re in for a treat of projects – the crew are CASEing our favourite projects from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalogue. This catalogue finishes next week – along with the 2016/2017 Annual Catalogue. So – if there’s anything on the retiring list that you wish – you are rapidly running out of time – so hop on over to my online store before it’s too late!
 
It’s a hard ask to identify my favourite project from the Occasions Catalogue but I managed to choose one – a card that hard leapt out at me when I first saw the catalogue but hadn’t got around to making. It’s the comic strip card on page 49.
 
And I’ve used one of the new Hostess Stamp sets in the 2017/2018 Annual Catalogue which goes live next Thursday – 1st June.
 
The “In the City” set is full of images of buildings, vehicles and nature – both outline images and stamps to be used for colouring. The possibilities are endless. There are great sentiments too! In fact – there are 60 stamps in this set! WOW! 
 
In the City - Hostess Stamp Set
 
In the City will be available to purchase with Stampin’ Rewards of $34 value. 
 
I’ve made a wedding card in the new  2017-2019 “In Colors” which will be available for two years from next week. 
 
 
The top panel has blocks of Berry Burst and Tranquil Tide.
The middle panel has blocks of Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist. The bottom panel is Powder Pink. Love how these colours work so well together.
The bottom panel is Powder Pink. Love how these colours work so well together.
Love how these colours work so well together.
 
In the close-up below you can see the limousines and the chapel have been popped up on dimensionals and I’ve stamped the outline images inside the card too.
The card base is anoth new product – Thick Very Vanilla cardstock! Yes that’s right! Thick Very Vanilla! Just like the Thick Whisper White – it is thick enough to make a sturdy card base!
 
I’m loving getting to play with new products and I was delighted to be able to hold two Catalogue Launch Parties this weekend to introduce the new Catalogue to some of my local customers. What fun! More on those events in a later post.

Colour INKspiration – CI08 – Eastern palace Sneak Peek

 

colour_inkspiration_banner

Welcome to another Colour INKspiration Blog Hop and Challenge – where every second and fourth Wednesday of the month, a new Pinterest Inspired colour swatch will be uploaded to the Colour INKspiration Facebook Group, and the Colour INKspiration Design Team will get the ball rolling with a blog hop. You can join the challenge with your own creation – or just enjoy all the fab projects that are being shared!
I’ve been absent from the Blog Hop for a few weeks – life gets busy sometimes and the last couple of months have been for me. I’m excited to be back onboard this week!
  
 

You may be starting here – or you might have hopped on over from the talented Kelly Kent at  My Papercraft Journey  (wasn’t that pattern incredible!) – either way – WELCOME! Enjoy the Hop!

Our Pinterest Inspired Colour Swatch for Challenge #8 is:

I loved the picture and the colours for this challenge so really wanted to create something to share.

You’ve probably heard by now that there’s a new suite from the yet-to-be-released 2017/2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue that is going to be available for pre-launch purchase as a special pre-release bundle. The Eastern Palace Suite – stunning and it’s not until ou start playing with the stamps and dies that you realise how versatile this set is.

 

Trust me – you are going to want the bundle – so don’t miss out on the FREE gift you’ll get with the pre-release bundle. If you live in New Zealand and wish to order the bundle – please contact me (jackie@creativejax.co.nz)

Here’s Eastern Palace meets Colour INKspiration 08!

 

I loved making a random pattern with several of the stamp images and using this as a vertical band on my card that my diecut could overlap.

And look at that diecut! Woah – I’m loving this set already – and it’s only had one outing!

I love negative space  – and there are so many options for that with this set of thinlits!

I carried the random stamping through to the inside of the card too!
I’m looking forward to using this bundle heaps – both in card-making and memory keeping.

I will be doing a Classes-to-Go with the Eastern Palace Bundle – details will be available when early next week!

 

 

Hop on over to  Kathryn Mangelsdorf  at  Kathryns’ Stampin’ World –  where you’ll see more Colour INKspiration – and more die-cutting too!
