It feels great to be back for another Colour INKspiration Challenge!
You may have arrived from Jacque’s blog and her stunning project, or be starting right here, but make sure you hop the entire way around and see all the gorgeous projects created for you!
When you have finished, get creating and then play along and upload it directly to our Facebook group right HERE!
We have a beautiful colour palette for you to play with this week!
The Colours are :
Smokey Slate; Rich Razzleberry; Soft Sky and Night of Navy.
I have an upcoming class on Spinner Cards next week, so I thought this colour palette would be fun to play with to create one of the cards we will make in class. So I used the A Little Wild Bundle as this set seems like it was almost created to make gorgeous spinner cards!
The Elephant was perfect for the use of the Smokey Slate – I even cut an extra head and layered it with the new mini dimensionals for bit more effect. To give the background a bit more visual appeal, I used the Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.
I highly recommend using Fast Fuse or similar when adhering down the thread for the spinner, as you want to ensure it is stuck down firmly for lots of spinning action!
It just seemed fitting to turn it into a New Baby Card 🙂
Now it’s time to hop over to Bronwyn’s blog and see the amazing project she has created for you!
Welcome back to another week of CASEing the Catty!
This week we get to CASE our favourite Project from the Annual Catalogue! I was like…wwwwhhhhhhhhaaaatttttttt???????
With all those great projects how on earth are you supposed to choose?
Well to help me decide I went back to what caught my eye when I very first got to see the catalogue! There were two things that really stood out to me and I wanted NOW! The Foxy Friends Suite and the Baby Bear Stamp. But the project that really caught my eye was this one….
Found on Page 90, that tiny fox really caught my attention! It took me a little while to actually find where the little fox came from, but I eventually found it in the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack (slapped forehead! )
I love the layout on the box and all the layered elements, so this is what I decided to create for you this week….on a card!
It looks so adorable on a card, and I added the extra layer of white with our Layering Circle Dies just to help it stand out a little more from the Calypso Coral Background! Sooooooo Cute for a baby card – and you could make the matching gift box too.
So as I had made a ‘pink’ one….I decided I definitely needed to make a ‘blue’ one too!
I hope you too use the catalogue for your inspiration. With so many wonderful projects, it makes creating your own version extra easy! And don’t forget – this gorgeous paper stack from this suite is retiring as are the Baby’s First Framelits and the sequin trims. You only have 10 more days to get your retiring items before they are gone 🙁
Now its time to hop on over to Monique’s page and see what her favourite project is from the Annual Catalogue!
Hi everyone. Here is one more super adorable, cute, gorgeous….you get the idea….foxy card for you to enjoy. Seriously, this set is super versatile and a must have!
I have deliberately left a sentiment off this one as it can be added to suit the occasion! I’m thinking baby or birthday or thank you! I love that you can stamp the images, or punch the images, or do a combination of both!
Have I convinced you that you NEED this suite yet???? You seriously do! And those cute little flags – cut from the coordinating paper stack!!!!
What are you waiting for???? Go Have fun creating with it!
A happy hello to everyone!
I wanted to pop by today and share some of the fun I have been having with our Foxy Friends Suite. The whole suite is just toooooo cute! And the animal possibilities with that punch!!! I mean WOW!!! Have you seen what others are creating!
Well I have seen a LOT of double Z fold cards lately. So I wanted to give one a try myself. So I created two! Lol.
I left some white space on this card because I always feel that you need somewhere to write! The beauty about this one is that even when you write in the white space, you can’t see it when the card is closed. And its just too easy to create pretty backgrounds with the coordinating designer series paper stack! The next one I made, I wanted to try a couple of the other animals!
Here’s a quick view of what that other panel that you can’t see looks like on both cards…..
These are quite fun to make, and with so many possibilities, so here are my measurements for the second one so you can make your own!
Card base – 4 1/8 x 11″ scored at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″.
1st cardstock layer – 2 pieces 3 7/8″ x 2 1/2″ and 1 piece 5 1/4″ x 3 7/8″
2nd yardstick layer – 2 pieces 3 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ and 1 piece 5 1/8″ x 3 3/4″.
Smaller strip 3/4″ x 11″ and scored at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″. Layers are 1 strip 5 3/8″ x 5/8″ and 2 strips 2 5/8″ x 5/8″.
Have fun creating!!!!
Have you seen our Baby Bear stamp yet??? It is absolutely ADORABLE! I knew as soon as I saw this stamp back in April at our On Stage event that he would be one of the sets that made my first order from the new catty! And he did, and then he sat there…until the new CTC blog hop focusing on babies and kids!
I have a friend who has recently had a little boy, so this set was going to be perfect to get its first use. I used the catty for some inspiration. I loved the brown bear on the blue background on page 61 – so he helped inspire this creation.
Isn’t he adorable. And so versatile – girls, weddings, gift cards, you name it, he could be used. And because this is a triple step stamp, the colour combinations are endless. My best tip for lining him up when stamping is to focus on his bottom and the gaps under his arms. That generally sets you right!
And if you are wondering about that background…it’s one of the papers from the serene scenery stack that I used in my previous post! I did use our recently retired Little Letters for the name – but they fit too well not to!
I hope you enjoy playing with this stamp set!

Today I am sharing with you a couple of ‘Magical’ Cards that we have been making in class this week using the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set. These type of cards are referred to magical slider cards. You start with a pain black image, but as you pull out the slider, the image magically becomes coloured.
Isn’t the little chicken in this set just so very adorable! It looks like a normal – albeit a bit boring – card so far – but just wait for the magic…..
It’s hard to put into a photo as you really see the magic happen as you pull the slider. I used one of the sheets from the Wildflower Fields DSP (another FREE sale-a-bration item) and simply randomly coloured a few of those spots with colours from the subtle collection.
Here is another example using the ice cream and the Birthday Bouquet DSP.
The Honeycomb Happiness stamp set is perfect for this type of card as it has lovely ‘open’ images that allow you to add a lot of colour, making it very effective! Would you like to make one of your very own??? Jump on over to my Youtube video here.
I tell you – they are soon much fun to make and have been a HUGE hit in class this week.

It has been so nice to take a quick break from Christmas cards to create something different. This card was created for a customer order. I regularly complete customer orders and work with the customer to achieve the result they are after.
I was very happy with how this card turned out. It is my version of the card on page 32 of the 2015 Annual Catalogue. It is so sweet using the Sweet Li’l Things designer paper and Zoo Babies Stamp Set.
And I don’t know about you – but I really cannot get enough of that metallic thread. I use it on soon many projects. I LOVE it!!!!!
Welcome to our Awesome Team ‘Eureka Stampers’ Blog Hop! I hope you have enjoyed the items show cased so far and you have got some fantastic inspiration from everybody’s projects!
If you began from the start then you should have arrived from Jessica Williams fabulous blog ‘The Paper Caper’.
Well, with all of our new amazing products we have in our new catalogue, let me tell you, it was so hard to decide what to showcase on this hop! There are just soooooo many choices! But, I had to choose – so here goes –
One of my absolute must have’s in this catalogue is the ‘Something for Baby’ bundle. All those cute baby stamps with matching Framelits…what’s not to like! It makes it so easy to make cards and gift tags for someone’s special arrival, but I wanted to show you something different.
This is a ‘Block Card’ that are currently very popular and this one which I saw on Pinterest I just had to CASE it! I changed the measurements so it’s smaller and folds flat into a regular sized envelope (I find that so much easier!) You can find the original here.
My other project I thought may help you get the most use out of the new Project Life stamp sets –
‘Point & Click’ and ‘Remember This’. I am loving the photopolymer range! I have tried lots of other photopolymer stamps and have never been truly satisfied with the quality of the image you get . .. but as usual Stampin’ Up! have done their research and have found a fantastic polymer product!
So here is my take on this handy little journal / mini album that you could put photos in or extra journaling! It could be given as a gift or even slipped into a PL project pocket.
Thanks for joining me.

I had a bit of fun creating some cards using the Zoo Babies stamp set last night. I totally cased the card from Pinterest, but when you are preparing for a market, why reinvent the wheel! Lol
Then I thought about how the animals match my Two by Two stamp and thought I would give a card in a box a try, and the new DSP from the occasions catalogue looked exactly like water for the boat. PERFECT!
Keep Crafting! It’s good for the soul!
