CASE-ing the Catty - Sale-a-bration Week 1

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty for this week. It is week 1 of CASE-ing the Sale-a-bration Brochure and we are free to choose from all of the amazing projects shown.

The Happy Birthday To You stamp set is one of my absolute favourite items from the 2020 Sale-a-bration brochure.

CTC261_1_SU_Sample
I selected the card above for my inspiration sample.  I love the birthday cake image as it perfect for colouring in lots of different ways. 

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday To You - Sale-a-bration 2020 | Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
I started with a Rococo Rose card base and added a layer of Crumb Cake that was dry embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder. I used a sponge dauber and Crumb Cake ink around the edges to add some depth.  Next, I  embossed a piece of Whisper White with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and then used a Stitched Rectangle Die, cutting twice to create a custom size for my cake. I matted it on Rococo Rose and popped a piece of the Pearlised Doily underneath before adhering it on the right hand side of the card.

I've used Rococo Rose & Old Olive Stampin' Blends to colour the flowers on the cake with Gray Granite for the stand and centres of the flowers. As soon as I saw this stamp set, I knew that I would want to fussy cut the cake and those sweet flowers and I popped up the cake on the embossed panel.  However,  you will be pleased to know that from 4 February, you will be able to purchase the coordinating Birthday Dies for this stamp set. The greeting from Happy Birthday To You was heat embossed in white on Rococo Rose and flagged.

In addition to a die to cut the complete cake with stand and flowers, there is also a die to just cut the 3 flowers - woohoo! You can now use those sweet flowers on lots of projects without fussy cutting. There are also some foliage dies and a separate cake stand as well.

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday To You - Sale-a-bration 2020 | Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
For the inside I have cut the 2 largest Stitched Rectangle Dies in Crumb Cake and Whisper White. I stamped another cake image and used the die I mentioned above to crop the 3 flowers. I cut away the separate flower and popped it in the corner, with the joined flowers at the base. I did cut these apart too, popping up the larger flower. I stamped a few of the little dots in Crumb Cake ink around the flowers.

While I had everything out, I made this coordinating gift tag. I've used the tag die from the Bonanza Dies on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder, with a smaller Stitched Rectangle to cut out the centre.  I popped up the tag frame on a piece of Rococo Rose that I cut to shape by tracing around the tag and then leaving a narrow border. I stamped the greeting from Itty Bitty Birthdays on a piece of Whisper White that I cropped to size with a Stitched Rectangle Die.  I stamped the birthday cake and then used the coordinating die to cut the 3 flowers, separating the 2 joined flowers to colour them. I've used one of the foliage dies fom Birthday Dies to cut some additional leaves in Pear Pizzazz.

CASE-ing the Catty - Mini Catalogue Week 2

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty for this week. It is week 2 of CASE-ing the new January - June Mini Catalogue and we are free to choose from all of the amazing projects shown.

This week I decide to christen the Timeless Tropical Bundle from the Tropical Oasis Suite

CTC260_2_SU_Sample

I selected the project sample above for my inspiration with the Hibiscus and Frangipani flowers as the main focus. They remind me of the days we lived in a tropical area and were typical flowers in the gardens as they are so hardy.

Stampin' Up Timeless Tropical Bundle - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
As you can see I've pretty much done a full CASE of the layout, changing up the colours from the sample for a brighter result.  My base card is Terracotta Tile and I added the Petal Pink layer that was dry embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder, also part of the Tropical Oasis Suite. The birthday greeting was stamped in Early Espresso on Whisper White and positioned under the opening that was cut prior to the embossing. 

Stampin' Up Timeless Tropical Bundle - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

The thing that really struck me when I was playing around with the different elements, is that there are so many options for how you can use this stamp set. You can stamp the images in any colour straight onto Whisper White; stamp the images onto coloured cardstock as I've done for the leaves; or stamp the images and colour them or any combination of the above!  I stamped the leaves in Mossy Meadow onto Granny Apple Green card stock for a bold and bright look. There is such a lot of shading in the stamp, it really didn't need anything else. The Hibiscus was stamped in Early Espresso ink and I used a combination of Stampin' Blends and Watercolour Pencils for the colouring. For the Frangipani flowers, I wanted a softer look, so I stamped first in Gray Granite before colouring. I coloured some rhinestones for the Frangipani and sprinkled a few more around.

Stampin' Up Timeless Tropical Bundle - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

I have kept the inside simple with a white writing panel and I stamped the top of the small pineapple stamp in Granny Apple Green to create the border at the bottom. The Hibiscus flower is partially stamped in the corner in Early Espresso (stamped off) and then coloured with Stampin' Blends and Water Colour pencils.

Hi there

Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty!

If you've come from looking at the lovely project on Shannon's blog, then welcome! If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today!  You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the CTC Crew by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post. 

This week, we're taking a break from the Holiday Catalogue and CASE-ing the Kids & Babbies Section of the Annual Catalogue.

CTC257_Banner

 There are lots of cute samples in the Kids & Babies Section of the Annual Catalogue.

CTC257_SU_Sample

I've taken my inspiration from the sample above, although  it may not look too much like it, lol. I've turned it from a portrait to a landscape card.

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies Bundle - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
Today, I've used the brand new Painted Poppies stamp set from the upcoming January - June 2020 Mini Catalogue (previously called the Occasions Catalogue). I started with a Rich Razzleberry card base and added a layer of Sahara Sand card stock that has been dry embossed with the Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Whisper White to leave a narrow border. I added a zigzag of Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon under my embellishment.

CTC257_Pink_Poppies_Close

I enjoyed colouring the lovely floral images from the new Painted Poppies stamp set, using Roccoco Rose and Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends markers for the flowers and Granny Apple Green Blends for the leaves. There are coordinating dies to crop the flowers and smaller leaf, although I decided to fussy cut them on the line. The greeting from Itty Bitty Birthdays was heat embossed in white on Rich Razzleberry card stock and cropped with the smallest of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I layered up all the elements onto a Nested Stitched Rectangle Die that I dry embossed first with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I  inished with some Frosted/Clear Epoxy Droplets and a tiny Silver Glimmer butterfly on the edge of the flower.

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies Bundle - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
For the inside I have a Sahara Sand mat for my writing panel and I've partially stamped some sweet flowers along the bottom. Another stamp from the Painted Poppies set is a row of poppies, but I've just used the top inch or so of the stamp to create the border. I've coloured the flowers with Light Roccoco Rose and added a dash of Light Rich Razzleberry to the centres. The greeting from Itty Bitty Birthdays is stamped in Rich Razzleberry.

CASE-ing the Catty - Feels Like Frost DSP Colours

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty!

If you've come from looking at the lovely project on Peta's blog, then welcome! If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today!  You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the CTC Crew by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post. 

CTC246_Banner
This week, we're CASE-ing the colours from the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper on page 40 of the Holiday Catalogue and taking inspiration from the layouts on the same page.

CTC246_Feels_Like_Frost_Colours
This paper incorporates a lot of colours, so plenty of options to choose from in this pack. The other fabulous aspect to this paper is that the reverse side of every sheet has a silver foil and white design that will coordinate with a lot of projects.

CTC246_SU_Sample

I've taken my inspiration from the card above, using one of my favourite designs from the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper.  I love the soft purple shades with just a touch of green and the soft blurred background. Instead of a Christmas Card, I've made a simple everyday card with a flexible greeting that could work as a birthday, get well, sympathy or friendship card. It's great to have some of these types of cards in your stash and this paper is perfect for them.

Stampin' Up! Feels Like Frost DSP - Judy May, Just Judy Designs
I wanted to maximise the beautiful designer paper, so I've gone for a large square card base (size is 13.5cm or 5 1/4") in Highland Heather and I added a white mat to the designer paper to give it a bit of pop. Can't get simpler than that.

Stampin' Up! Feels Like Frost DSP - Judy May, Just Judy Designs
For the embellishment, I started with a large oval of Vellum card stock, just to soften the background and give it more focus. I added a zig-zag of the lovely Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon to pick up the green in the paper and add a pop of colour. The greeting from Good Morning Magnolia was stamped in Gorgeous Grape and cropped with the Stitched Nested Label Dies. I shortened it by cutting 3/4 of the image first then moving the die to the length I wanted. This is a great technique to master as you get more mileage out of all of your basic shape and label dies. 

The flowers in the paper reminded me of the foliage in the Frosted Bouquet Dies, so I cut some in Silver Foil and Vellum card stock and positioned them under the corners of the greeting label, which I popped up over the top. I finished with a little popped up Silver Glimmer heart and a sprinkle of Frosted Epoxy Droplets.

Stampin' Up! Feels Like Frost DSP - Judy May, Just Judy Designs
For the inside I have a Silver Foil mat for my writing panel and I have stamped the floral spray from the First Frost stamp set on the right. It also looks a bit similiar to the flowers on the designer paper and I used Stampin' Write markers direct to the rubber with Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green. I added a narrow strip of Silver Glimmer at the base to ground the floral spray.

CASE-ing the Catty - 3D Project from Card Layout

CTC243_Banner
This week, we're CASE-ing a card layout and turning it into a 3D project. I've often turned a 3D project into a card, but rarely the other way around!

CTC243_SU_Sample

I was flicking through the Annual Catalogue and the card above on page 46 with the butterflies popped out at me. I love all of our purple shades and my Butterfly Gala stamp set hasn't seen much ink lately, so I decided to turn this layout into a gift box. 

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Gala Birthday Gift Box - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

I started by embossing a panel of Thick Whisper White with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and then used the largest of the Stitched Rectangle Dies to create the square background. I had an 'eeek' moment when I opened my Shimmery White Embossing Paste to find it had gone rock hard! If this happens to you, don't despair. Add a small amount of boiled water to the paste and work it with a fork until you get the right consistency and the lumps are gone.  I put a small amount onto a Silicone Mat and added a drop of Smoky Slate re-inker to give it a slightly grey tone and used the diamond pattern of the Pattern Party Decortive Masks to add some texture to the background.

I added the folded strip of the Tricolor Ribbon once the paste was dry and then the stitched circle in Purple Posy. The butterflies were stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink and then over stamped with Purple Posy ink for a subtle look. I used the Light Highland Heather Stampin' Blend marker and selectively coloured parts of the butterflies and then punched them out with the Butterfly Duet unch and popped them up. The 'birthday' was die cut from Silver Glimmer Paper using the Well Written Dies and the 'wishes' from the Well Said stamp set in Gorgeous Grape ink onto Highland Heather card stock.  I added lots of bling to finsh. The finished art panel was added to a layer of Gorgeus Grape card stock with a narrow border.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Gala Birthday Gift Box - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
I created the box to fit the art panel, so it is 4.5" x 4.5" x 2.75". The bottom uses Purple Posy card stock that I have stamped with another of the butterfly images from the Butterfly Gala stamp set. The stamps were cut apart so I could stamp them separately in Purple Posy ink for a subtle background. I added a liner of Gorgeous Grape card stock to extend the height of box (as I was using A4 card stock that limited the height to 1 3/4") and the lid sits neatly at the top of the Purple Posy section. It also makes the box more robust.  I was really happy with the way it turned out, but it is really hard to photograph!

CASE-ing the Catty - Woven Threads Colour Combo

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty!

If you've come from looking at the lovely project on Monique's blog, then welcome! If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today!  You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the CTC Crew by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post. 

CTC242_Banner
This week, we're CASE-ing the colours from the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper on page 14 of the Annual Catalogue and taking inspiration from the layouts on pages 12-13. 

Woven_Threads_Colour_Combo

This paper has designs incorporating all of the 2019-2021 In Colours - Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray, Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy and Terracotta Tile. I have to say that in the beginning, I wasn't a fan, but when you see it in real life, there are  some pretty designs. 

CTC242_SU_Sample
I've taken my inspiration from the card above, using the gorgeous embossed rectangular frame from the Heirloom Frames Dies & 3D Embossing Folders. I turned the frame into a shaker element for my birthday card for a special friend.

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads Suite - Judy May, Just Judy Design
I chose to start with my favourite of these colours - Seaside Spray for the card base and added some of the Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile design from the Woven Threads Designer Paper with a very narrow white border to make it pop. 

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads Suite - Judy May, Just Judy Design

I heat embossed the greeting from the Rare Blessings stamp set in white on Seaside Spray card stock for the background of the shaker element. The 1/8" foam strips were placed around the edge and I added some of the pretty Woven Threads Sequin Assortment before adding the Window Sheet over the top.  I embellished the frame with the stamped daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set and some foilage cut with the Bouquet Bunch Dies in Seaside Spray card stock and Sparkle Glimmer paper. A small Terracotta Tile butterfly on the edge of the frame is the finishing touch.

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads Suite - Judy May, Just Judy Design
For the inside I have a double mat for my writing panel and I added a strip of the designer paper at the base. I printed the greeting using my computer in matching Terracotta Tile ink so that it would fit with the die cut 'friend' I adhered underneath. If you would like to print your own greetings, you can go to my Printing Stampin' Up! Colours page that has instructions on how to do this; plus you can download my lastest Colour Chart with all the colour codes you need for your word processing program.

Beauty Abounds Especially For You

Hi there

Today I'm sharing a card that we made in class earlier this year, that somehow escaped getting to my blog. I was inspired by this card using the lovely Beauty Abounds stamp set, which is still available in the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue. I have kept the layout the same, but I wanted  my card to have more colour and pop.

Stampin' Up! Beauty Abounds - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
The Whisper White centre panel was stamped twice with the large floral spray image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set, masking off the centre area so that it didn't over stamp the first image.  The bubbles were randomly stamped over the top in Lemon Lime Twist and Balmy Blue ink and the panel was adhered to a mat of Lemon Lime Twist that had the bottom edge finished with the scalloped and stitched border from the Stitched Be Mine Dies. The greeting from the Botanical Bliss set was stamped at the base of the card front-sized Balmy Blue panel and the art panel was adhered to it.

The butterfly was punched out of the (retired) Botanical Butterfly Designer paper and adhered to another butterfly punched out of Whisper White card stock to make it more robust. I coloured it with Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. It was popped up on a stitched circle die cut with the Stitched Shapes Dies and then onto a Balmy Blue circle.  I finished with a rhinestone for the head of the butterfly and each side of the greeting.

For the inside, I have mat of Lemon Lime Twist  for the writing panel. I stamped the floral spray on the right and coloured it with Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. I finished with a couple of tiny Balmy Blue butterflies cut with the Butterfly Beauty dies.
