Fitting Florets Designer Paper

Hi there

Fitting_Florets_DSP
I wanted to pop by and remind you that time is running out to purchase the gorgeous Fitting Florets Designer Paper.  This item is available until 30 November or while stocks last. It coordinates beautifully with the early release Framed Florets Bundle, that will continue to be available as part of the 2023 Mini Catalogue offering.   

The images in the floral design in the top left of the collage above, can be fussy cut and there are 8 that can be cropped with the coordinating die from the Framed Florets Dies.

I designed the Stationery Box above with this gorgeous paper and you can see more details about it, on the original post here. Today, I want to share some card designs that I made to include in the Stationery Box.

I love these mini note cards that fit into the Stampin' Up! 3" x 3" envelopes. They are perfect to pop in with a small gift or a bunch of flowers. I've fussy cut the floral designs except for the one on the centre right, which was cropped with the coordinating die.

I've used quite a few of the designs from the Fitting Florets DSP on these note cards. The decorative oval and the smaller centre oval from the Framed Florets Dies work really well with this card size. I've embellished them with the both stamped and fussy cut images.

CASE-ing the Catty - Sending Love & Hugs

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty for this week! It has been ages since I've been able to join the Crew and I'm feeling rather out of practice, lol. After 10 months of renovations, I'm finally moving into my new craft room.  I'll share some pics after I'm unpacked and organised.

If you've come from visiting  Peta & Marvi, 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 the Crew are taking inspiration from a bundle in the 2022-23 Annual Catalogue .

CTC389_SU_Sample

I decided on the Sending Smiles Bundle for my card, using the sample above for inspiration. I think it was the textured backgound using the lattice from the Chic Dies that caught my eye, plus, I thought it would be nice for my Mum, who has been unwell recently.

I don't have the Chic Dies, but I thought the lattice (of a different kind) from the Artisan Addition Dies might work. I cropped 2 panels from Thick Basic White and then fussy cut around the design to create standalone pieces that I adhered to a panel of Basic White. If I was doing this again, I would add the Adhesive Sheet to the reverse first, but I wasn't sure how it would turn it.

I stamped the flowers and stems and cropped them with the corresponding pieces from the Sending Dies and positioned them on the lattice. I decided on the detailed 'Sending' die, rather than stamping it and then die cutting. Foam Adhesive Sheet was adhered to the reverse of the Daffodil Delight card stock before die cutting, so the greeting adds another layer of texture to card. The smaller greeting was stamped in Garden Green and cropped with the smallest of the banner dies from the Stylish Shapes Dies, cutting twice to extend the length.  I finished with a trio of Brushed Brass Butterflies.

CASE-ing the Catty - True Beauty Birthday

This week the Crew are giving the 2022-23 Annual Catalogue a little love; taking our inspiration from the Love, Thanks & Support section. There are heaps of great samples in this section to get the creative juices flowing.

CTC378_SU_Sample
The True Beauty Bundle arrived in the post this week, so I chose the card above on page 66 for my inspiration.  The lattice die is the main reason I purchased this bundle, so now I have it, I need to get the value from it! 

Stampin' Up! True Beauty Bundle | Judy May, Just Judy Designs
I wanted the lattice to be a feature of the card, so I've cropped it from Basic Black after first adding some Adhesive Sheet to the reverse (yay, I remembered!). I cut a panel of Pool Party the same size as the lattice and dry embossed it with the (sadly, retired) Subtle 3D Embossing Folder to give it a bit of texure, and then adhered the lattice die cut to it.  This makes it super easy to adhere the lattice panel to your card base and you could have a different colour behind the lattice if you wanted to. As the lattice die is almost the same width as a metric card base, I have cut a custom card base from Pool Party card stock to provide a 3mm border.

I stamped the rose image from the True Beauty stamp set in Melon Mambo ink and cropped them with the coordinating die from the Organic Beauty Dies. I created some different shades by using a spoon to massage the ink into the ink pad for a slightly lighter colour. The leaf sets were stamped in Granny Apple Green and the foliage on the left in Garden Green. The greeting from the Potted Geraniums stamp set was stamped in Mememto Tuxedo Black and cropped with the label die from the Geraniums Dies. The gold twine was wrapped in a circle and adhered with glue dots behind the label. Then it is a matter of positioning the elements. I also popped in some extra foliage in Gold Foil and finished with a tiny Brushed Brass Butterfly on the label and a sprinkle of Iridescent Rhinestones.

This week we are taking inspiration from the All Occasions Section of the Annual Catalogue.  This is a huge section and so many great samples to choose from. 

CTC372_SU_Sample

I chose the project in the photo above for my inspiration as it gave me the opportunity to try out some new products that I haven't used yet.

Stampin' Up! Hello Ladybug & Fancy Frames | Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I've stayed close to the sample project, starting with a Balmy Blue card base and using the second design in the Fancy Frames Dies set also cropped from Balmy Blue. This is a die that would definitely benefit from having Adhesive Sheet adhered to the card stock first, to make it super easy to adhere to your project. Of course, I thought of this after I had cut it, lol. The greeting from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set was stamped in Night of Navy ink on Basic White. I popped the Frame over the top of the Basic White background when I set it up in the Stamparatus to get the placement right.

Stampin' Up! Hello Ladybug & Fancy Frames | Judy May, Just Judy Designs
I've used the Medium Daisy Punch to create the Daisies and the Ladybug Builder Punch to create the Ladybird. I popped up the wings and added a vellum layer for extra interest. The black spots were created with the Classic Matte Dots. The centre of the Daisy is created with a die from the Poppy Moments Dies and I added a large glossy dot in Balmy Blue from the new favourite Glossy Dots Assortment. I added some Granny Apple Green leaves using the Pansy Dies and a little gold foliage with the Forever Flourishing Dies. I finished with a trio of new Iridescent Pearls Basic Jewels. The photo doesn't do them justice as they are very pretty.
