Welcome back to another CASEing the Catty for hop for this week! Have you been creating away? Have you been using the catalogue for inspiration? If you are stuck for a layout or colour scheme or ideas for using a set, then CASEing images in the Catty may be just what you need to kick start your creative spark!
You may have come from the amazing Kelly Kent this week or be starting right here! So hop around and see what inspiration the crew has for you this week!
This week for our challenge we are creating from the Cool Treats Section in the catalogue – so ANYTHING from pages 32 – 45!
I myself have recently been playing LOADS with the Cool Treats suite! Yes, the entire suite! Well it’s so …… Cool! Lol. The stamps, the framelits, the designer paper, the sprinkles!!!! Have you tried it yet? I took inspiration from it all!
I have created a few cards with this suite, but this week I wanted to share with you a fantastic Poppin’ Card Box that I found by a demonstrator called Gemma Clarke. They are quite popular right now and with good reason too! The box POPS right out of its case when you pull it open! It’s such an interactive card.
Here’s the one I created…
and here is the other side of the box….
You can even stamp a message inside the box base or use this area to write your message on! They are fantastic for vouchers too. They are the perfect size for movie tickets!
Now it’s time to hop on over to Elizabeth’s blog to see what beautiful project she has for you all!
Don’t forget to play along by creating your project, snapping a pic and posting on out Facebook Page right HERE!
If you would like to have a go at creating your very own Poppin Box Card then take the link to Gemma’s Youtube video HERE.
Well it’s March already! That means there is just under one month left to get all the Sale-a-bration goodies you are after! LESS than ONE MONTH! Arrgghhhhhhhh….do you have all of yours yet???
One of my favourites would have to be Honeycomb Happiness. It is soon cute and easy to use – especially when you combine it with matching designer paper, such as the Birthday Bouquet as I have done in the past.
This project was a little different. I was requested to make a couple of Easter Cards. Now I LOVE easter – i am a self confessed chocoholic! But I don’t do very many Easter cards…..AT ALL! But with the limited Easter Sets we have this year, I knew that little chicken from the Honeycomb Happiness set was going to be perfect. And because it fit the brief for the SUO challenge 143 for March, I thought I would play along with that too! It’s the first time I have played along with the SUO challenges, but those of you who visit regularly know that I quite like a challenge! You can find all the info for the SUO challenges here.
And I love a card in a box for a bit of a fancy card…. so here is what I came up with…..
How cute is that! I LOVE how it turned out. I started by picking a nice floral piece of DSP from the wildflower fields DSP (another Sale-a-bration freebie with a $90 spend). I then build my box and colours around that. That’s one of the best things about Stampin Up! Everything coordinates! I featured colours Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey when building this card.
I used the Sprinkles of Life set for my little easter basket – and can you guess how I made the little easter eggs???? I used the little spoon from our new Cups and Kettles Framelits Dies. I just trimmed off the spoon tip and stamped with some mini stamps (the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp set is perfect for this, but you could use any little stamps you have!) And to save me colouring my chicken, I just stamped him directly onto some Hello Honey Cardstock. Too Easy!!!!
I hope you enjoyed these projects. Don’t forget any $90 order earns you any Sale-a-bration item for FREE!
PS – Do you have a HUGE wishlist??? Why not join the fun and build your stash! For only $169 you get $295 worth of any product of your choice. That’s $126 worth of product for FREE!!! HURRY – only until March 31st!
Well, I still love creating these cards in a box, even after all this time!
This one is something I whipped up ( yeah right!) for a custom order.
I love these ease of having matching Framelits for this set, so it really does make it loads easier to make a quick card. I think this set is SUPER CUTE!
I would love for you to leave a comment and show me some of your own creations with this set to.
Wow, two posts in two days! I’m doing well!
And that’s because I have another gorgeous creation I wanted to share with you all.
This is a special ‘card’, made for a special person, for her Big Birthday!
This version is referred to as an ‘Exploding Card’. They are fantastic for that ‘extra’ special occasion, and I can’t wait to play a little more with different versions of these!
All wrapped up in a gorgeous little present box. I added my writing to the underside of the lid. Made with Stampin’ Up!s beautiful eastern elegance DSP (which is retiring at the end of June), and using a few other goodies – spiral flower die and beautiful wings embosslits folder. My scan n cut machine cut the 60 out of our glitter paper! All in all I think it’s pretty special!
What do you think?
I am so very sad to see this all time favorite product on the retirement list! I adore the versatility of Secret Garden for Cards and decorations. Here is on of the favorite things I would make with it! Sniff, Sniff 🙁
I have been VERY busy and nearing completion of a custom order for some gorgeous card in a box invitations for a first birthday. 40 boxes equals a LOT of cutting, scoring and folding and lots of double sided tape!!! Lol.
But I am nearly there, just a few more final touches … Here’s a sneak peak for you all.
If you are ever interested in a custom order, whether it’s for one, a few or loads, then just contact me using the tab at the top of the home page, and I will be in touch to discuss your requirements further 🙂
I must say that I absolutely love the card in a box craze! I am having so much fun making different versions and different colours of the same version.
I made this one for a friends birthday. We always go out for coffee, so I thought, why not at the coffee to the card. I wouldn’t have been able to post it, so it was a good thing I was handing it to her!
Made with a retired stamp set and papers, but in our beautiful in colours!
We had our team event last Saturday. It was a great day spent with people who love craft as much as I do, and in particular Stampin Up!
One of the make and takes was this cute little Card in a Box project.
The top picture was the one we were taught using Sale a Bration Products.
The bottom pic was the one I created today for a dear friend whose daughter had a baby recently. She usually gets to see all my creations…but I had kept this one hidden until I gave it to her today…
I definitely feel another class coming on! I think it will be great for my April 3D class, don’t you!
Happy Australia Day everyone!
Just thought I would pop past and show you my effort for my latest card in a box project. I adore the dinoroar stamp set, but as it’s retired I am having to borrow this one 🙁
Hope you like it!
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!
