CASEing the Catty #179 | Favourite Kit

Sunday again!  Can you believe how fast these weeks roll around???  I’m grateful to have another wonderful week to look forward to (even if 2019 is coming faster than I’m ready for!!!).

Today I’m hopping with the CASEing the Catty Crew, and we are sharing projects inspired by the kits currently available in the Stampin’ Up! range.

It’s catalogue transition time, so most of these kits are soon to be retired.

No automatic alt text available.

Kits are great for all levels of crafters.  For the beginner stamper, they give you the supplies to make cards without having to buy the whole online store!  For experienced stampers, they are the perfect option for taking on holiday, to keep you busy while waiting around at kids sports and because they are just so pretty!

I’m sharing projects made today with the Color Me Happy Kit which was a special release together with the Stampin’ Blends.

This kit is still available in the online store and features supplies to make 4 fabulous card designs (16 cards in total) in conjunction with the Color Me Happy stamp set.

I’ve mixed & matched the pieces from this kit using the style of the bottom left design, the envelope from the top right and the birds from the top left to create a pocket style card.

The cute stamps in this set are perfect for colouring.  I’ve used Stampin’ Blends (they are my favourite!!!) but any colouring method will work!  Just choose your ink to match your colouring choice (quick tip: alcohol colouring = water based ink; water colouring = alcohol based ink).

If you think kits are just for putting together the pieces, then you’ll be pleasantly surprised how easy it is to create your own designs by mixing & matching.

Did I mention how much I love Stampin’ Blends?  They’ve been in unorderable status for a few weeks while Stampin’ Up! catch up on manufacturing to meet our crazy demand.  They’ve be back on 1st June!!!

I’m excited to share that we’ll be getting more Stampin’ Blends colours in the new catalogue! With 11 new colour pairs joining the collection, there will be 22 colours in total plus two skin tones & a colour lifter marker (Pink Pirouette retired with the current catalogue cycle).

Get ready for these special pens to return to ‘orderable’ on 1st June 2018 with some Color Revamp storage.

  1. Gorgeous creation Kelly, and for someone who doesn;t love colouring particurlly I have to say that I too love the alcohol markers. These birds are so easy to colour in too. Lovely

  2. I love the super sweet colours for your little bird, and I’m always amazing and thrilled when I see how you’ve taken a basic project and taken it up a notch! I loved this kit as it was presented, but this is so much more and really awesome!! Love it.

  3. Hello Kelly, Many thanks for your translated Freebees! I was very happy about that. Although I have a few blank forms where I can enter it myself, but have not managed it technically yet. Therefore, I would like to send you two older projects in English and again ask if you have these in your archive in German? I can not change my PDF’s. Then my archive would be updated. I printed out the printouts on thin whisper-white, so the colors came into their own. What did you print the inserts on? I once sent you the depositors in English in the attachment. I did not find the depositor for the refill ink from 2013-2015.

    Lovely wishes Petra Petra Kurth

If you have these in your archive and possibly in German, I would be very happy. What can I send you as a thank you to America then?
