Welcome to CTC 184 – Delightfully Detailed
where every Sunday the Design Team Copy and Share or Selectively Edit images from a given section of the catalogue. This week we are CASEing from pages 38 – 51 of the Annual Catalogue.
This section is full of beautiful inspiration, so it was difficult to know what to CASE, but as it happens – I realised yesterday that I hadn’t created a card like I normally do when my daughter performs.
Yesterday she was staring in Into The Woods Jnr. I love being able to create an individual card that relates to the performance.
I used the basic layout elements of this card…
I used the basic layout but for mine I used the new Subtle embossing Folder as the background. I am LOVING this folder for just that bit of texture in the background without overwhelming the images on the card. And Of course – what better set to use for Into The Woods than our Rooted in Nature Bundle!
Into the Woods Card
I really like the effect of the Tree Stump stamped on Vellum. It gives a more subtle appearance on your cards. And those brilliant embossing dies to create the leaves…whose not loving those!
TheLabeller Alphabet allowed me to create whatever sentiment I wanted! Don’t you love being able to get as creative as you want!
I hope you enjoyed this weeks project. Now it’s time to hop on over to Monique and see what she has created for you all!
Colour INKspiration 35
where today get to choose 3 colours from our new Neutrals colour palette!
Stampin’ Up! ® has just had a major colour revamp, so to start off the new catalogue year at Colour INKspiration we’ve decided to feature a Colour Collection for the first challenge each month (2nd Wednesday) until we have showcased them all! The second challenge in the month (4th Wednesday) will be a Pinterest inspired pic as per usual just to mix it up a bit. This month we are starting off with the NEUTRALS COLLECTION and you can choose any 3 colours from that range for your challenge project. We are also changing the rules about what else you can add to the mix; essentially just the Basics – Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Basic Black as well as metallics.
Have you managed to have a good look at our changes to the Colour Families yet? I LOVE the changes to the colour palettes. I used to be a Regals collection girl, but now I find I fluctuate between the funky Brights Collection and the Pastels of the Subtles collection. There are so many new possible colour combinations to choose from and create.
For todays colour challenge, the 3 Neutral Colours I chose were Crumb Cake; Soft Suede and Mossy Meadow.
I hadn’t inked up my Rooted in Nature Bundle yet and I have seen some lovely projects with it – so I decided this colour challenge, with it’s earthy tones, would suit the use of the bundle perfectly!
Rooted In Nature
I stamped some of the tree in the background using the Stamp Off method before stamping the timber onto a piece of Vellum Cardstock, fussy cutting and adhering over the trees so you can still see them in the background. Another full strength Mossy Meadow Tree for the front of the timber, some Linen Thread and the card front was complete.
I love the effect where you can still see the trees through the vellum layer!
I hope you enjoyed my project tonight. Now it’s time to continue along the hop to see all the other great projects made just with Neutrals!

Hello and welcome to CTC 182. This week we are CASEing the Tea Room section on pages 13 – 25 of the Annual Catalogue.
How exciting that we now get to play with HEAPS of new goodies from the BRAND NEW CATTY!
Are you absolutely loving it?
Tonight I’m excited to be playing along. I barely seemed to have time to create lately, so it was good to get crafting for tonights hop.
There was plenty to choose from in the Tea Room section of the catalogue, but this image in particular grabbed my attention…
This card features the gorgeous Stitched all Around Bundle. I haven’t got mine yet, but I thought it would be perfect to substitute the design using the Painted Glass Bundle. So here are my
CTC 182 Tea Room Meets Painted Glass Cards:
My first card uses one of my all time favourite returning colours – Mint Macaron. The rest of the colours I based on the Designer Series Paper Colours from the Natures Poem DSP including one of our new colours – Petal Pink.
I used the Big Shot Embossing Mats to create the embossed shape on the card base. These mats are brilliant! You will be able to emboss any of your framelit shapes using these mats to create interesting backgrounds to suit any needs. The rose from the Painted Glass set is one of my favourite flowers. For this card I fussy cut the roses as I didn’t have any new Stampin Blends to match my colours for the leaves (They’re on my wish list too!)
My second card I made, as i was truly dying to make a card using the new Soft Sea Foam colour. Maybe it reminds me a bit of our old Pistachio Pudding – but I love it. I was a bit stumped at first as to what DSP to use as I don’t have much of that yet either, then I remembered our Wood Textures DSP is carrying over and would really help me achieve the subtle look I was after.
I have to say – I really love how this one turned out! I hope you do to. This bundle has so many possibilities – not just for stained glass looks!
Now its time to hop on over to Elizabeth’s blog and see what she has created. Don’t forget to hop all the way around and get some new catalogue inspiration!
