Welcome back to another week of CASE-ing The Catty. The crew is made up of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all parts of Australia and New Zealand.You are at the blog of Rachel Palmieri, Stampin' Up!® demonstrator. I run classes at my home studio in South Morang, Victoria, demonstrate Stampin' Up!® products and tools at parties for my customers, coach my lovely team and create cards and the occasional 3D project.
In my very humble opinion, CASE-ing The Catty for a colour combination is the easiest challenge of the lot! Any catalogue, any colour combination. You might like to take a photo of your card or 3-D item sitting on top of the page you cased, just like I have here, and enter our challenge via Facebook. W'ed love you to join us.
For my card, I've CASE-d the main colour, Island Indigo, chosen a different woodgrain and added hints of yellow & green (from the sunflowers & fruit). I could also say that I also echoed a container holding something, like the barrel of sunflowers.
It has been quite a while since I have inked up Crafting Forever, but I am making some teacher gifts and thought it appropriate. Not only does it have some fun images in it, there is a Stampin' Up!® logo stamp for any of you happy crafters out there who'd love to sell some of your creations. Angel Policy requires you to add the ©Stampin' Up! to any work sold, containing Stampin' Up!® stamped images.
Three pens is another of the images in this stamp set, and I couldn't resist adding a couple to the pot of brushes. I have another stamp set, Pieces & Patterns which matches with a current DSP (pattern paper) and the loose pencil lying on the table is from that set. Stampin' Up!® prides itself on being a company with co-ordinating products, and this is a prime example of stamp set themes matching, and one of those matching with a paper, Pick A Pattern DSP, which then lists all the colours it co-ordinates with. How easy does that make crafting?
I'm sneaking in a new box framelit which is in the Occasions Catalogue. Let me know if you want me to get one out to you, as I am ordering catalogues this week. Last night I went shopping for chocolate, to see what little treat I could sneak in there, but unfortunately the packet of the delicious Lindt chocolate I bought was too long, but the right width, and I had to eat it!!!!
On the same page as the Lots To Love Framelits Dies (page 19) are narrow notecards and envelopes. I will add them to my pre-order too and make some little cards for the box next week. Lovely Words Thinlets and Stitched Shapes Thinlets helped me add a window, and let me used some of the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate to dress it up.
These are some bonus cards using Crafting Forever. This one with pens above is a super-easy repeat pattern which looks good left plain black & white, or easy to colour too.
Another Fun! Fun! Fun! card using repeat stampings of the scissors in primary shades, and one of the Crafting Forever sentiments, I can see this card being perfect for a younger child's birthday card too.
This weeks hop is a big one, but there is bound to be a heap of crafting inspiration, (and maybe glimpses of new products as we all begin to get our pre-order shipments) so now is the time to hop over to see marvelous Mel Pagano
