CASEing the Catty #122 Falling in Love

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.

Colour INKspiration #05

Did you love the colours from last fortnight for Colour INKspiration?

We had so many people enjoying the bold & beautiful purple & yellows!!

This week for Colour INKspiration, we take a softer turn into the pastels.

Colour INKspiration #5

This trio of colours lend themselves so nicely to so many occasions!

My initial thought was a pretty wedding card…

I had the idea to create the background piece by repetitively die cutting the floral centrepiece die (hexagon shaped die) from the Window Box Thinlits until the cardstock piece was covered.

I then overlayed it on the bokeh piece of DSP from the Falling In Love DSP.  This DSP pack is perfect for this challenge!!!

Once the background was finished, I added my sentiment on an oval stitched shape and decorated with a pink flower & blue butterfly.

Sometimes finding ways to keep within the constraints of the challenge colours is the best fun of a colour challenge!


I loved the wedding card, but  I couldn’t shake off the idea of using these colours for a baby card.

How cute are these little babies from the Moon Baby stamp set?

This card for some oh-so-cute twin boys born just a little while ago.

Even though it was a traditional baby blue theme I was going for, the pink worked beautifully for a shower of hearts as they drifted down!
