CASEing the Catty #131 – Everyday Occasions

Happy Sunday – of a long weekend here in WA!

How lovely is an extra day of family time and a short week of activities!?!

More time for craft and other fun things!!!

This is our first CASEing the Catty of the new catalogue and we’re starting with the Everyday Occasions section!

No automatic alt text available.

I always love going back to the annual catalogue for ideas – because there are so many of them!!!

Today I’m going for a masculine look with a motorcycle card.

I used this scrapbook layout as my inspiration…

To create this card…

It’s not a direct translation of the scrapbook page, but instead I’ve taken the key elements and added.

All the things I loved about the layout appear in my card including the One Wild Ride stamp set, Hexagon Embossing Folder and Best Badge Punch element.

I’ve changed up the colours to black, white, Dapper Denim & Smoky Slate and used some white embossing rather than stamping.

The theme on this card was too good not to carry over to the inside and a coordinating envelope!

I was able to add a few more of the scrapbook features this way too!

I love many of my Stampin’ Up! creations, but I particularly love this card.

The grungy style is slightly different to what I would normally put together – thanks to the inspiration from the catalogue!

Guess what???  CASEing the Catty are looking to add more design team members.

To apply, participate in our CASEing the Catty challenges during June by uploading your inspired project onto our Facebook page.

Next up on our first 2017-18 Annual Catalogue challenge is the gorgeous Rebecca Scurr.

Bec has been busy planning ahead for all the wonderful challenges that are coming up!  Thanks Bec!

We’d love to see you join in!

Hey, hey! It’s Father’s Day (in the US) – JAI#316

Hey, hey!  I know lots of my visitors each day hail from the United States of America.

And today in the US they are celebrating Father’s Day.

So, I thought I’d share in the celebrations with a masculine themed card using some more new products from the catalogue release.

This is my dark & broody motorcycle card using the ‘One Wild Ride’ stamp set.

JAI#316 - Stripes. Masculine birthday card - One Wild Ride stamp set. Kelly Kent -

To tie in with the theme over at Just Add Ink #316 this week, I have accepted Patrice’s challenge to add stripes.

I was so excited to see that Stampin’ Up! have included a diagonal stripe background stamp!!!  Stripes are a great addition to lots of cards and a stamp means they can come in any colour – as many times as you like!  And, like this card – with whatever background cardstock colour you choose!!!

And, don’t fall off your chair… but I’m on a roll with decorating the inside of cards.  Nothing too elaborate, but it definitely adds a nice extra touch to the card.  Next stop…  envelope decoration!

Another new addition featured in this card is the Basic Black Baker’s Twine – in solid black!!!  There’s 5 new solids colours in the Baker’s Twine range and they are fabulous!  {But then twine is one of my favourite products!}

Hope it’s a very lovely Father’s Day in the US.  Ours is in September, so this card would be a perfect one (minus the birthday sentiment inside) for a motorbike loving Dad – if you are super organised!  Or you can pin for later!  Does anyone craft without Pinterest? Kelly x
