Hey, hey! It’s Sunday!
And April at that! I know I say it every month, but where is this year going?
This is an exciting week for me – because the Stampin’ Up! event OnStage happens next weekend.
A whole day of fun with stamping friends – new & old. We get to see & play with new catalogue products (hello June sneak peek!) and indulge in what we love.
A few more sleeps to go!!!
This week at CASEing the Catty we are sharing projects we love inspired by the Falling in Love section of the catalogue.
I’ve been waiting to incorporate a square frame into one of my cards since seeing this cool feature on cards by some of my stamping friends. Check out Lou & Rochelle‘s gold designs.
So, CASEing the elements from this card from the top right of the Falling in Love suite picture….
I added in the frame and made this pretty card…
I love white on white (or vellum on white in this case) with a colour feature.
And I love all the layers!!!
Taking all the elements from a card into the catalogue and reordering them is a great way to transform a project and make it into something unique!
I have intentionally kep the sentiment for this card vague. Celebrate can be used for so many things from a wedding to a birthday to a promotion.
Please join us for CTC this week and upload your creation to the Facebook page.
And be sure to have a looksie at all the creations from the CASEing the Catty Crew.

Hello! Welcome to our second Colour INKspiration for the month of March.
Thank you so much for all the wonderful entries we got for the first challenge for March – #05. You can see them on our Colour INKspiration Facebook page.
Colour INKspiration #06 gives us a great combination of rich & fresh colours – Night of Navy, Pool Party, Calypso Coral & all things gold!
For me, I just couldn’t move away from the Middle Eastern luxury feel – which led me back to my favourite elephant!!!
He’s definitely around for the next 2 months – so I’m going to be making the most of him!
How cute is the gold touch on his caparison? That was inspired by this super cute pink elephant card made by Robyn Cardon.
I carried through the colours to create a fun inside of the card too…
I love splatters and have quite a few stamp sets that work well to create that bottom left to top right splatter pattern!
We’d love for you to join us on the Facebook page to see what other stampers are creating with these colours & to share you own creation.
Speaking of amazing creations (because I know yours will be), please hop on to the gorgeous Lou Kitzelman and see hers. This lady is a never ending bottle of talent!
Thanks for supporting Colour INKspiration.
We’ve been dazzled by your contributions & amazed by how many people keep joining the fun!
This creation was made for a friend who wanted a card with an “awesome” gold theme that matched in with the party invite & present she’d bought. It’s great example of how versatile most of the stamp sets can be – the sentiment is from the Flower Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set but there isn’t a flower in sight! And the love affair with Flower Patch continues. Kelly x
