CASE-ing the CTC Crew

Hi there

It is the last of the CASE-ing the Catty for this year, but we will be back next year with inspiration from the wonderful new Occasions catalogue. You may have come from Helen's Blog, but if you are visiting me you can join the trail by using the button at the bottom of this post.

For something a little different, we are finishing up by CASE-ing a CASE from one of the CTC crew! I'm casing this card from the lovely Rachel Palmieri. I love the softly coloured nutcracker image and the Pool Party and Real Red colour combo Rachel has used. 

Rachel_Falalala

I didn't end up purchasing the 'Sparkly Seasons' stamp  set although it got on the list a couple of times. I do like snow globes and it is quite a versatile set with the ballerina in addition to winter, Christmas and Halloween images. I might relent now it is in the amazing End of Year sale.  So, to my card.  I have improvised by creating my snow globe with the Sleigh Ride Edgelits and Circles Collection framelits; creating a night scene with the sparkly black glimmer paper in the background, Lost Lagoon in the middle and gorgeous Dazzling Diamonds in the foreground. I've finished it off with a wooden Snowflake element a little bow of silver cording trim.

Art with Heart Blog Hop - Colour Challenge

~AWH_Blog_Hop

Hi there


Welcome to the Art With Heart Team Blog Hop for October. This month we have a colour challenge for you.

AWH_Colour_Challenge

I have to say that I found this set of colours more than a bit challenging. I nearly passed, but I pushed outside my comfort zone and managed to come up with a couple of cards. 

You may have come from the blog of the lovely Kathryn Ruddick, but if you are visiting me, you can join the trail using the button at the bottom on this post.

For the first card, I used the Hostess set 'A Whole Lot of Lovely', stamping the cute little solid floral image all over to create a background panel. 

  Stampin Up - 'A Whole Lot of Lovely' - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

 I chose Watermelon Wonder for the base card and sentiment to bring it together. This is a very simple layout, but works well with the busy background.

Project Details
Stamps A Whole Lot of Lovely
Card stock & Papers     Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White
 Ink Pink Pirouette, Blackberry Bliss, Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder
Accessories White Organza Ribbon, Rhinestones Basic Jewels
Tools     2" Circle punch

For my second card, I have used the 'You've Got This' stamp set, water colouring the floral image in Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron and fussy cutting. I used a touch of Crumb Cake (as a neutral) in the centre of the flower as well.

  I think I prefer the second one, but I'm glad I gave it a go!

CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop - Winter Wonderland

Screen Shot 10-11-15 at 05.42 PM

Hi there

Well, another week has flown past and it is time for the CASE-ing the Catty Crew to give you some more great inspiration for your festive crafting. This week we are looking at the 'Winter Wonderland' section on pages 22-45 of the Holiday Catalogue.

You may have come from Tricia's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can join the trail using the button at the bottom of this post.

I have chosen to use the 'Winter Wonderland' suite of products that are displayed on pages 22-24 for my card today.  I have taken my inspiration from this photo on page 24. 

Screen Shot 10-11-15 at 05.43 PM

I often find with specialty designer papers that I don't use as much as I should as I'm saving it for a special occasion (which often doesn't arrive, as I've moved on, lol). So, this is a great opportunity to cut into the very elegant 'Winter Wonderland' specialty paper. 

Instead of a treat bag, I have created a card, following the layout of the sample pretty closely. I have mixed up the centre panel a bit, as I wanted my greeting to stand out a little more. 'The perfect blend of simple elegance and a luxurious touch of gold' describes the Winter Wonderland suite and hopefully my card.

Stampin Up - 'Winter Wonderland' DSP, Stamp Set - Judy May, Just Judy Designs


The gold foil makes a luxurious background and the Softly Falling embossing folder adds gorgeous texture.  I recommend that you go around the edges of the foil card with a gold marker if you have one. I use the retired gold Stampin' Dazzle marker to cover the white core and give a professional finish.

CTC51_Winter_Wonderland_Clo

This photo shows the top part of the card close-up. I have used the gold striped washi to border the panel and the black crackle design in the centre. It makes a perfect background for the greeting, which has been gold embossed and die cut with the label from the Project Life framelits. I've added one of the wooden Snowflake Elements with a gold Cording Trim bow. Personally, I don't think rhinestones suit gold as well as they do silver.

CTC51_Winter_Wonderland_Ins

 For the inside, I've finished it off with some of the gold striped washi and the lovely greeting from the 'Embellished Ornaments' stamp set, heat embossed in gold.

CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop - Gift Tags

Hi there

Welcome to our CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop this week when we are taking inspiration from the Holiday Catalogue  for gift tags. I love making gift tags as gifts for friends and if you approach it as a production line, it doesn't have to take too long to produce a set of lovely tags.  

You may have come from the blog of the lovely Kathryn Mangelsdorf, but if not, you can start the journey here and follow the trail using the button at the bottom of this post.

The first set of tags I have made using the Delicate Ornaments framelits. You can see it used on Page 15 of the Holiday Catalogue. These are very quick to make for a set of elegant tags. I think the largest ornament is the perfect size for a tag and I have made these so that they open and you can put a message inside. 

Stampin' Up! Delicate Ornaments Gift Tags - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

This photo shows how they open and I have put a simple Christmas greeting inside. There is still plenty of room to write as well.

This is a closeup of one of the ornaments, showing the matching foil and glimmer paper. I have coloured the Iced Rhinestone with colour matched Copic markets for the gold and red tags.

 Ink Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories Iced Rhinestones, Silver & Gold Cording Trim
Tools     Delicate Ornaments Framelits, Big Shot, Stampamajig, Tear and Tape, 

 

The next set was inspired by the tags on the bottom of page 8 of the catalogue.  The images on the 'Home for Christmas' are crying out to be fussy cut! 

Stampin' Up! 'Home for Christmas' DSP, Fussy Cut Gift Tags - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

 

This time I have used the Circles Collection framelits, cutting a red and Very Vanilla in the larger size which are held together with the silver cord, to create an opening tag.  Of course, you can go with just the one layer as well.

Fussy_Cut_Tags_Open

To add some sparkle, I have used Iridescent Ice embossing powder on the Pool Party circle - this is a quick way to create sparkle on any colour cardstock. Just press your die cut into the Versamark ink pad, sprinkle on the embossing powder and heat set as normal. This closeup shows it more clearly.

You need to use strong adhesive or dimensionals to stick your images and greeting to the embossed circle.

CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop - 'Home for Christmas'

Hi there

Welcome to our CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop this week, in our new time slot of Sunday evening 7pm, Australian Eastern Time. This week are looking at the 'Home for Christmas' section on pages 8 -21 of the Holiday Catalogue - probably my most favourite section.

You may have come from Rebecca's blog, but if not, you can start the journey here and follow the trail using the button at the bottom of this post.

There are so many great products and ideas in 'Home for Christmas' section and the cute little elf on the bottom of page 19 caught my eye. I have combined the water coloured image with the lovely contemporary colour combo of Real Red and Pool Party from the 'Home for Christmas' DSP.

  Stampin' Up! 'Christmas Cuties' and 'Woodland' TIEF - Judy May, Just Judy Designs.

The 'Woodland' embossing folder provides a great background for this cute elf as he trips through the forest. I used an Early Espresso marker to highlight the Birch trees and a sponge dauber and Whisper White Craft ink to whiten up the trunks, masking them off to minimise the ink getting onto the rest of the background. This also takes the edge off the darkness of the marker (although it looks darker in the photo). I added some Dazzling Diamonds sparkle for the ground and some Silver Glimmer stars hanging from the trees.  

Project Details

CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop - Designer Series Paper

Hi there

It's Friday evening and the CASE-ing the Catty Crew are taking inspiration from the new Designer Series Paper in the Holiday Catalogue.

You may have come from Jackie's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can continue with the blog hop by using the arrow button at the bottom of the post. 

My favourite DSP from the Holiday Catalogue has to be 'Home for Christmas'. I love the combination of traditional Christmas colours mixed with more contempory colours along with the super cute images of a jolly Santa and deer. There are lots of opportunities to fussy cut images from this DSP as well.

Screen Shot 09-18-15 at 06.11 PM

The card I'm sharing uses a traditional Christmas colour combo with the beautiful rich green design (I think it is mistletoe?) from 'Home with Christmas' providing the backdrop for my poinsettia flower. It does all the heavy lifting on this card

  Stampin' Up! 'Home for Christmas' DSP and Festive Flower Builder Punch. Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I've used the new Festive Flower Builder punch to create the poinsettia flower. I didn't want to overwhelm the card, so I  used the smaller of the single petals for the first 2 layers and 4 sets of the double petals for the centre. The Gold Glimmer stamens add a little sparkle. I always start with a 1" circle to provide a base for the petals and use glue dots for a quick and mess-free build of the flower. I haven't popped up the layers, but it still has lots of dimension.

The greeting is from the lovely Hostess set 'Antique Tags', coloured with Stampin' Write markers direct to the rubber.

Project Details

Card stock & Papers     Real Red, Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Home for Christmas DSP, Gold Glimmer paper

Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

~AWH_Blog_HopHi there

Today I'm getting together with some of the lovely Demonstrators from the 'Art with Heart'  Stampin' Up! team to share projects made with the fabulous products from the new Holiday Catalogue. You can purchase these products now, until 4th January 2016.

You may have come from the blog of the lovely Kate Morgan, but if not, you can start the journey here and continue to the next blog using the button at the bottom of this post.

I decided to focus on the 'Embellished Ornaments' and matching 'Delicate Ornaments' Thinlits dies for my projects today. First up is a shaker card in striking gold, black and white to mirror the 'Wonderland' suite of products.  This is not a colour combo I have ever used for Christmas, but I think it is very elegant.

Stampin' Up! Shaker Card using 'Embellished Ornaments' & 'Delicate Ornaments' Thinlits. Judy May, Just Judy Designs.

 To create the gold frame for the shaker bauble, I used the 1 3/4" circle punch to cut a circle in a piece of gold foil paper and then used the next size up framelit from the Circles Collection to create the gold frame. I cut just the 'hanger' part of the round Delicate Ornaments bauble using the framelit and carefully glued it behind the frame. It is a tiny bit larger than the bauble framelit, but I don't think it is noticeable. Here is a close-up of the baubles.

AWH_Ornaments_Gold_Closeup

The front panel was first embossed with the lovely 'Softly Falling' embossing folder before cutting the circle for the shaker with the 1 3/4" circle punch.  Then comes a 2" square of Window Sheet over the hole and the 3D foam strip that is gently molded around the circle. Now that Stampin' Up! doesn't carry the shaker frames, I use the Couture Creations 1/8" wide 3D Foam Strips; they make shaker cards fast and easy. I popped in the confetti from the Metallics Sequin Assortment and added a Dazzling Diamonds lid. Once the shaker is finished you can add the gold frame to the front and complete the rest of the details. I hand cut the Dazzling Diamonds backing for the other detailed bauble, by tracing around the thinlit die. 

  AWH_Delicate_Ornaments_Side

When attaching your shaker component to the card mat or base card, I recommend that you add the foam strips all the way around your piece as shown in the pic above. It makes for a great professional finish and prevents buckling and sagging. 

AWH_Delicate_Orn_Gold_Insid

Finally, for the inside I have stamped the holly spray in Encore Gold ink in the top right corner and added a strip of the 'Wonderland' gold striped washi to finish.

Project Details
Stamps Embellished Ornaments, To You and Yours Too
Card stock & Papers     Whisper White, Basic Black, Gold Foil, Dazzling Diamonds and Gold Glimmer paper

Tools     Falling Softly TIEF, Delicate Ornaments Thinlits, Big Shot, Precision Base Plate. Gold embossing powder, Heat gun, Dimensionals, 1/8" 3D Foam Strips (Couture Creations), Tombow, Stampamajig

 

The next card I have uses the long bauble from the 'Embellished Ornaments' stamp set in traditional Christmas colours of Real Red and Mossy Meadow. It is clean and simple and a great layout to mass produce. 

Stampin' Up! 'Embellished Ornaments' & 'Delicate Ornaments' Thinlits. Judy May, Just Judy Designs.

I have added some Cherry Cobbler ink around the edges of the bauble to give it more depth and some sparkle with the holly berries in Red Glimmer paper. This has been followed through on the lovely sentiment from this stamp set. The new Fine Tip Glue Pen was the perfect option to add the small red glimmer circles for the berries.

AWH_Red_Ornament_Inside

 To finish the inside there is another spray of holly with sparkly berries and some striped DSP on the bottom edge. 

Project Details

Accessories Gold Cording Trim
Tools     Delicate Ornaments Thinlits, Big Shot, 1/8" Circle punch (not SU), Owl Builder Punch, Dimensionals, Stampamajig, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Glue dots

 

My final card uses the large detailed thinlit from the 'Delicate Ornaments' set. The new Precision Base Plate does a great job of cutting these detailed dies and they come out cleanly and easily from the die.

This is another clean and simple layout in a regal colour combo of navy, white and silver, but would also look great in colours like Island Indigo, Real Red and Rich Razzleberry. I've added a band of the new white Glitter ribbon across the centre for contrast. The ribbon is surprisingly soft and easy to work with and you can never have too much bling for Christmas!

AWH_Ornament_Blue_Centre

I backed the die cut with Silver Foil and the small flower thinlit  in Silver Glimmer adds sparkle to the centre of the bauble with one of the new Iced Rhinestones to finish it off. 

AWH_Ornament_Blue_Inside

The inside has been finished with a  border of silver stars from the 'Holly Jolly Greetings' stamps set at the top and some silver sparkle at the bottom.

CASE-ing The Catty Blog Hop - Make a Difference!

Hi there

Tonight the CASE-ing the Catty Crew are looking at the 'Sprinkles of Life' stamp set which is this year's Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set. Stampin' Up! has been supporting this charity for more than 10 years and has contributed over $1,000,000.00. These funds support families who need to stay away from home for their children to receive medical treatment, including in Australia. For each purchase of this stamp set, Stampin' Up! donates $3 AUD to RMHC.  It's a great stamp set and a great cause, so I hope you will consider purchasing it and help make a difference!

You may have come from Rebecca's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can continue the journey by clicking on the button at the bottom of this post.

'Sprinkles of Life' is an incredibly versatile stamp set and unfortunately I only had time to make one card.  I've created a fun shaker birthday card featuring an apple tree and a bunch of apples that you need to get into the basket on the corner.  I saw this idea at Convention and have been wanting to try it out. I'm sure there is a name for these games that I remember from childhood. To add some extra interest you have to manoeuvre around the apples on the tree!

It was difficult to photograph the card due to the reflection off the window sheet, which you can see on the right hand side.

Stampin' Up! 'Sprinkles of Life' - Judy May, Just Judy Designs.

I created a taller tree by stamping a second tree at the first junction of branches. If you carefully wipe off the bottom edge of the tree after you have inked it, it meshes together quite well.

Father's Day Blog Hop

Hi there

~AWH_Blog_HopToday I'm participating with some of the ladies from the 'Art with Heart' Stampin' Up! team to present some fabulous Father's Day ideas to inspire you. We also have our brand new 2015 Holiday Catalogue available from 1 September, with some amazing Christmas inspiration for you. Be sure to contact me to request a catalogue today! 

You may have come from Claire's blog, but if not, you can start here and then follow the trail to the next blog by clicking on the button at the bottom of this post.

I have a pretty limited set of male oriented stamp sets, so I am using my current 'go to' set for male cards, 'Wetlands'.  This would suit a nature oriented guy perfectly. I have combined all of the images on a sponged background for my card. I couldn't decide where/if to put a greeting on the front, so I ended up leaving it off. I have stamped and coloured a second goose and popped it up on the stamped image. The main panel is also popped up on the Cherry Cobbler base card.

  Stampin Up 'Wetlands' Sponged Background. Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I have done a bit more sponging on the inside with the little sand pipers. As my Dad passed away many years ago, I have used a more generic greeting here, but you can add whatever sentiment is appropriate.

CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop - Everyday

Hi there

This week, the CASE-ing the Catty Crew are looking at the large 'Every Day' section of the Stamping' Up! 2015-16 Annual Catalogue on pages 73 - 110.  There is a heap of inspiration in this section and so many great cards to CASE (Copy And Share Everything).

You may have come from Julia's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can continue with the blog hop by using the button at the bottom of the post.

I'm currently in Western Australia staying with a lovely friend in the country for a few days. I bought a few supplies with me so we could do a bit of crafting and I didn't want to miss the opportunity to participate in this week's blog hop. I decided to CASE the card at the bottom of page 74 and mine is a very CAS version.

Stamping Up Wild About Flowers. Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I've taken this photo on a cute little table on her patio and you can see 'Millie' the lamb photo bombing in the background. I've made my label smaller to match the image and added the pretty floral DSP at the bottom. The paper piercing frames the label and I've added some pearl accents on the flowers. I keep thinking that it needs a touch of something else on it, but can't decide. What do you think?
