Fancy Friday Blog Hop - CASE The Cattie

Hey everyone and welcome to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop! I’m so happy to be a part of this fantastically talented group! If you’re new the the Fancy Friday Blog Hops, we are a group of past and current Artisans that get together each month on the last Friday of each month to bring you crafty inspiration with monthly themes and challenges. I’m so honored and excited to be a part of this talented group! Now onto this month’s focus!



This month we are challenging ourselves to CASE (copy and selectively edit) a project from either the 2019 Occasions Catalog or the Annual Catalog. I chose the to CASE one of the cards on the front cover of the Occasions Catalog that features the Dear Doily Stamp Set. This set is so elegant and gorgeous; I had so much fun creating with it. It's definitely a must-have.

Dear Doily Cling Stamp Set

Here's a look at the project I CASEd (below):


I chose this card to CASE because I love the delicate details in it's simple design. Also, I have just been in love with this stamp set, so it was a win-win.

To create the detailed texture, I decided to use the Rose Trellis Thinlits, but any detailed thinlits would do for this look. I went for the same tone-on-tone look. Then for my main focal piece, I used Soft Sea Foam Ink and Coastal Cabana Ink to stamp my floral images. I used my Starburst Punch to punch a piece of Vellum to ground my floral image and sentiment. Then I added some Gold Metallic Thread and my White Baker's Twine and main focal piece. Lately, combining cool colors with a bit of gold has been a favorite combo of mine. To finish it off, I added a few Rhinestones.


I have been enjoying using my Frost White Shimmer Paint and Aqua Painter to flick on a few splatters of shimmer. It's a bit hard to capture on film, but so pretty in person, like pearly splatters. Here's a close-up of that: 



I also made a tiny version of my card for my daughter's lunchbox (below):

2018 A-Team Reunited Blog Hop


Hey everyone! So myself and a few of the past 2018 Artisan gals thought it would be fun to reunite for a fun little hop. Can you tell that we have just had too much fun creating together and inspiring?! Well, here we are again in all of our crafty glory, lol! If you are hopping in order, you will have arrived from the fantastically talented Connie Collins. Make sure you hop all the way through so that you don't miss a single BIT of crafting inspiration!


We decided that we didn't want to confine the hop to a particular theme, but make it an "anything goes" as long as we used current Stampin' Up! products. I used this opportunity to break out a set that I haven't created with yet, and the title of this set says it all: You're Inspiring. Here's a look at the set in case you haven't seen it yet:  

Easter Mother's Day daffodil stamps

The design of my card is not too complicated but still keeps with my personal style. I used Daffodil Delight Blends to color the outer part of my flowers and added shading with some Mango Melody and a hint of Cajun Craze Blends for my centers. For the leafy portion of my flowers, I used Granny Apple Green Blends.To finish off my card, I added a few yellow sequins from the Iridescent Sequin AssortmentHere's a close-up of the flowers:


Well, this has been another amazing hop with some pretty out-of-this-world, blow you mind, talented ladies and I'm so grateful to have been a part of the 2018 team with them. In looking back, I have learned so much from them, and I have cherished their friendships. They have been encouraging and supportive through all of our ups and downs and these women will always hold a special place in my heart. Now on to you next mind-blowing inspiration, my insanely talented friend, Charlet Mallett

The Stamp Review Crew - Geared Up Garage

the stamp review crew
Hello Peaches! I'm here to participate in another fun blog hop with The Stamp Review Crew! If you're not familiar with The Stamp Review Crew , they are a group of very talented international Stampin' Up! demonstrators who get together on the first and third Monday of each month to bring you all kinds of delicious inspiration that features a different stamp set each new Monday. 


The blog hops are archived at The Stamp Review Crew blog and you'll be able to click through the hops at any time, going directly to the posts as you wish for any of the hops. Just click on the banner of this post to go to the master blog roll for this hop also. If you have already started the hop, you will have come from the lovely and creative Kelly Kent.

father's day card stamp and die set

For this hop, we are featuring the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set from the Classic Garage Suite of products. I have made quite a few cards and projects with this stamps set. It's perfect for any masculine themed project. Although, I have seen quite a few feminine ones done as well.

I wanted a more textured,, grunged up look, so I roughed up the edges on my Tranquil Tide Cardstock panel. I also wanted to feature those awesome gear dies as well, so I added those to the front.


  But one of the coolest parts about this card is the metallic Flax Ribbon that I created. Here's how you do it:
  1. Take a strip of your White Flax Ribbon and press one side down into your Versamark Ink Pad.
  2. Then, generously sprinkle your Silver Embossing Powder over the inked up side.
  3. Lastly, take your Heat Tool and melt the powder, making sure to stop heating it as soon as the powder melts. My guess (though I've not had this happen is that if you heat it too long, it is possible for the ribbon to melt or burn so heat with caution. I also recommend using tweezers to hold the ribbon while you heat it to avoid burning yourself. 
Here's a close-up of the finished product:


Super simple, right? Honestly, in the beginning I wasn't sure how it would work out. I was worried the ribbon would melt from my Heat Tool, but it turned out awesome! 

Well, that's my card for today's hop! Thanks so much for hopping along! Your next stop is my lovely and talented crafty friend Dawn Tidd! Check out her gorgeous blog and projects!
