Heart of Christmas 2019 - Week 4

http://bit.ly/2019HOC4

Hi Everyone, here we are with week 4 of our Heart of Christmas 2019.......
We are all having so much fun and making some absolutely fabulous projects, I hope  they are inspiring you to create. I know they are for me.
My card this week uses the lovely Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper found on page 42 of the Holiday Catalogue, along with the Free Skate Bundle on Page 44. I have used a Whisper White card base and a Night of Navy layer and stamped in Night of Navy ink.


I also used the Stitched Nested Label dies that I cut down for my sentiment on the front of the card.
I stamped and cut out the skate and then the blade using silver foil sheet. This is such a lovely set even though we don't have a white snowy Christmas here in Australia.

I can see myself using this skate for more than just Christmas, I think that if you know or have someone in your life that skates you could use this stamp for other occasions.


I kept the inside very simple by stamping the snow flakes and sentiment in Night of Navy ink and layering onto a Night of Navy base. If you would like to purchase all or any of the items used in this project please give me a call, email or PM so that I can help you. All Item are current in the either the Annual or Holiday catalogues for 2019.

Heart of Christmas - Week 3

https://bit.ly/2MPafZ0


Hi Everyone, here we are with week 3 of the Heart of Christmas 2019. So far we have seen some lovely cards and projects with so much inspiration for us all.
This week I have chosen to "Case the Catalogue" my card can be found on page 30 of the Holiday
catalogue. I just loved this card and I love the Brightly Gleaming suite as well.

I started with a whisper white card base and added a Pretty peacock layer before add the beautiful Brightly Gleaming DSP followed by some Gold Foil sheet that I used the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder on. I then added another layer of white before punching out the baubles using the coordinating punches that come with the lovely Christmas Gleaming Stamp set Bundle. I fussy cut the holly leaves and used the sprig punch from the Annual Catalogue to finish off the front of my card.

I kept the inside of the card very simple by just added a pretty peacock layer along with the white layer I then stamped the words and the filigree pattern of finish the inside.
I have used this Bundle so much over the last few weeks that I know it will stay with me for some time. If you would like to purchase all or any of the products used in this project please give me a call, email or PM me so that I can help you with your purchase.

 http://bit.ly/2019HOC2

Hi Everyone, here we are with week 2 of the beautiful Heart of Christmas 2019 Blog Hop. Wow there were some lovely cards and inspiration last week, I think we all are going to have some more beautiful cards and decorations again with week. My card this week is based on a card Called a "Double Gate Fold Card".


My Card uses the beautiful Christmas Gleaming Bundle, Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper and the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing folder all on page 31 of the Holiday Catalogue. I also used the Delicata Metallic ink in Copper (Page 16) to stamp my lovely holly and I used the Granny apple Green and Seaside Spray in light and dark to colour the holly before fussy cutting them out.


Once you remove the Belly Band and open the card you can see that I have punched out even more of the lovely ornaments and 1 3/4 inch circles to mount everything onto I used the Hammered Metal embossing folder to add texture to the circles and then added the Merry Christmas at the bottom to finish off the inside of the card........Where do you sign the card do I hear you ask? well...........


On the Back of the card I have added 3 Whisper White panels and stamped across the 3 panels before gluing them into place and this is where you write your message.
This card is really stunning and easy to make. All the items used in this project are available from the 4th September 2019 - 2nd January 2020 in the Holiday Catalogue, so if you would like to purchase all or any of these products please give me a call, email or PM so that I can help you with your purchase.

HEART OF CHRISTMAS 2019 - Week 1

 http://bit.ly/2019HOC1

Hello Everyone, wow has it been a year since the last Heart of Christmas Blog Hop, where has the time gone. But as I love Christmas it's a very special time of year and it makes me happy I was grateful to be able to join in again this year. Thanks to the lovely Claire Daly for organizing this event.
My first project for the year is a very simple one and you will be able to see my YOUTUBE video of this card on the 1st September 2019 when is goes live.

 I have used the beautiful "Feels Like Frost" DSP for this project and I think is comes up a treat. these papers are just to die for (Well I think they are). So I have 2 cards one in Purple Posy and Highland Heather and the other in Balmy Blue and Night of Navy. I used the Rhinestones form bother the Annual catalogue and the Holiday Catalogue they are the Pretty peacock and the Holiday rhinestones and they are perfect of this project as they match so well. I also used the layering rectangle dies to make the layers. I stamped my Merry Christmas in Gorgeous Grape and the other using the Shimmer White Embossing Powder I then finished off with the Wink of Stella to give the sparkle to the frost.


I made one of the cards as a top fold and the other as a side fold just to be different and I like both ways. I added a 1 inch piece of DSP on the side and stamped using the Christmas Gleaming stamp set. I layered the inside to match the outside as for me this just set the tone.
All the items used in these projects can be found in both the Annual 2019-2020 Catalogue and the New Holiday Catalogue that goes live on the 4th September 2019 if you would like to purchase all or any of the items used here please give me a call, email or PM so that I can help you with your purchase.

Colour Creations - Purple Posy

http://whatcathymade.com.au/art-with-heart-colour-creations-blog-hop-week-55-purple-posy/

Hi Everyone, well we are at the end of our Colour Creations Blog-Hop this is very sad as I have really enjoyed the challenge of using every colour that Stampin' Up! have in there range.
And with that said we are using the Purple Posy to finish on. What a beautiful colour it is as pale and delicate. As I don't have a lot of products in this colour only card and ribbon I had a bit of a challenge to make this card but I'm very happy with the result.

 I started out with a Gorgeous Grape card base and add then Highland Heather as the 1st layer and stamped tone on tone using the Floral Essence Stamp set. I coloured the centres of the flowers with my Daffodil Delight Blender pen just to make them show up better I then place another layer of card using the Purple Posy over this and add the ribbon at the join mark. I then stamped the flower from the Floral Essence onto another strip of Purple Posy in Versa Mark and Gold Embossed before cutting them into squares again I coloured the centres of the flowers with my blender pen before using both Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather to Aqua paint the rest of the flowers to give them some depth, I mounted them on to Gorgeous Grape square and added dimensionals to the back. To finish off the front I stamped Happy Birthday from the Wonderful Moments Stamp set and flagged the end and glued this under the bow, I added some basic rhinestones to the ribbon and wink of stella to the mount flowers.

Carrying the theme to the inside of the card I stamped the flowers again and Gold Embossed them as well as Aqua painted them I them mounted the Purple Posy on to Highland Heather to match the outside of the card.
All the products used in this project are available in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue, if you would like to purchase all or any of the project used here please give me a Call, Email or PM so that I can help you with your purchase.

http://whatcathymade.com.au/?p=3907

Hi  Everyone, This week we have the 4th of the new 2019-2021 In colours and this one is called "Seaside Spray" it's such a lovely colour blue pale and pretty all in one. I know I wont have any problems using this colour.

Today I have used the Free as a bird stamp set and DSP for this card as well as doing some water colouring.

I started my card using a Night of Navy card base and added the Seaside Spray to the top of the card after stamping the small flower for the Free as a Bird stamp set as a tone on tone I then added the DSP to the bottom of the card and place the new ribbons in the same colour to the middle making a bow. I cut my ovals from the layering ovals set and stamped the birds onto the white card. I then stamped the sentiment onto the smaller white oval and mounted them onto dimensionals I then added one of the leaf trinkets and small pearls to finish off the front of the card.

I mounted my white insert onto some more Seaside Spray card and stamped the flowers and leaves I them water coloured these as well.

Colour Creations - Terracotta Tile

http://whatcathymade.com.au/?p=3873

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all doing well? This week we have a lovely colour for you it's called Terracotta Tile I don't think I have to explain this colour as it speaks for it's self. As I don't have a lot of items in this colour yet only card stock I used this colour as my layers on my card.


I also used the Free as a bird bundle as I love this set and I made a middle pop-up easel card. I coloured my birds using Pumpkin Pie Blender Pens as this was very close in colour and I thought it looked really lovely on the birds. This is a very easy card to make and it will feature on my YOUTUBE channel during July or August and a Tutorial will also be on my Facebook Group page at the same time.


As you can see I have a little message under the flap but this is not where you write your message. I have fussy cut out some of the flowers from the set and used them as my stopper for the easel part of the card and added some clear epoxy drops the centre to finished them off.


Tadah!  This is where you write your message on the bottom. I have used the Terracotta Tile as a layer here as well, having the writing panel on the bottom of the card also give it more strength.
All the items used in the project are in the current 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue if you would like to purchase any or all of these items please give me a call, PM or email me so that I can help you with your purchase.

Colour Creations - Pretty Peacock

http://whatcathymade.com.au/?p=3844

Hi Everyone, Here we are again with another of the 2019 - 2021 In Colours and this one is called "Pretty Peacock" and it is a lovely peacock bluey/green colour. I really don't think my photo's do it justice. This week I did struggle a bit with finding just the right elements for my card but this is what I came up with (I hope you like it).


I used the nesting dies from the Free as a Bird bundle and cut out the 2nd smallest one several times and layered them onto some Silver Foil Sheet with a rather large gap between them and the glued this to a white card base (not sure the white works well) but the pretty peacock didn't look right either.
I then stamped the flowers from the Floral Essence bundle on the vellum and punched them out, I added faceted gems to the centres of the flowers to finish them off. I then stamped my sentiment using Versa Mark and silver Embossing powder I place the tag onto the front of the card using dimensionals and then punched out the smallest butterfly from the Butterfly Gale punch and added this to the tag.

 
For the inside of the card I used a Pretty Peacock layer and white and did my stamping in Pretty Peacock ink. Simple but effective. All the items used in this project can be found in the New 2019 - 2020 Annual Catalogue, if you would like to purchase all and any of the product for this project please give me either a Call, Email or PM so that I can help you with your purchase.

Colour Creations - Rococo Rose

http://whatcathymade.com.au/?p=3823
Well Hello Everyone,
Yes we are back for another 5 weeks of the Colour Creations and they are the 5 New 2019 - 2021 In Colours. To kick off the extra weeks we are starting the a beautiful dusty rose colour called "Rococo Rose" it's soooo pretty I think it will be a real winner for the people who love pinks.


I started out with a Rococo Rose card base and stamped the front of the card in the matching ink for the tone on tone effect using the "Floral Essence" stamp set (which I think I will end up wearing out) I have used this set so much that it's say NO NOT ME AGAIN!!.........lol  but I think this is one of my favourites from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. You will find this on page 107 of the catalogue and if you buy it as a bundle with the matching punch you can save 10%, so why not take a look.


I also used the Thoughtful Banners stamp set (retired) to stamp Birthday on the front of the card and the Happy is from the Merry Christmas to All Bundle (Page 68). I then stamped the other flower around the edge of some whisper white card and then stamped the leaves and coloured them in using my marker pen. I mounted the white layer onto some glitter card and then added dimentionals to this and place it on the front of the card at an angle to add a fun element.


I stamped another piece of whisper white for the insert with the other flower from the same stamp set and the sentiment also comes for that set as well.
If you would like to purchase the products used in this project please give me either a call, email, or PM so that I can help.

Colour Creations - Tranquil Tide

http://whatcathymade.com.au/?p=3778 
Hi Everyone, it is with sad heart that we are now at the end of this lovely Colour Creations Blog-Hop. This is the last colour of the current colour pallet, we may be lucky enough to be able to bring you the 5 new In Colours for 2019 - 2021. The lucky last colour is Tranquil Tide and it will be retiring on the 3rd June 2019 so sad as I really love this colour. it may be a dark colour but i still love it.
So along with the beautiful DSP that is also retiring sad times all round.
I have managed to use so product that are either new or carrying over and they are the Tropical Chic and Floral Essence Bundle. I have made another fancy fold card called a corner fold (which I will be making a YOUTUBE Video of in late June or early July) I think it is a lovely effect and very easy to do.When I stamped my flower I stamped 2 on Whisper White and 2 on Vellum to give the look of a really full flower I really like this effect as well, I then added a faceted Silver gem to the centre of the flower.
I stamped my sentiment on the front using the White ink, and as said before the leaves are from the Tropical Chic stamp set and dies.
I decided to follow the same look to the inside of the card by added DSP and a Tranquil Tide panel and then I added a small White panel for writing onto. I thought this would add a little different view to the insert.
With most of the items used in this project retiring You will find it hard to purchase them, But the Floral Essence Bundle is a joy to use and I have made so many project with it already that I think I have worn out the stamps already hehehe......
If I can help you with any of the product used in this project please don't hesitate to give either a call, email or PM so that I can assist you.

Colour Creations - Soft Suede

http://whatcathymade.com.au/?p=3756
Hi everyone, Well here we are with only one more colour after this of the Colour Creations Blog-Hop. So sad to see it coming to an end. This week our colour is Soft Suede which is a really love brown (not to light and not to dark). To me it's a really lovely masculine colour that sits so well with a lot of the new masculine stamp sets coming out on the 4th June 2019. I have used it as a kind of Sepia colour in my card along with a retired stamp set, that I know will be sadly missed by so many people around the world myself included "Lovely as a Tree".

I started out with a very vanilla card base and added a soft suede layer to the front before stamping onto another very vanilla card. other than the sun/moon in the picture I only used soft suede to make the clouds and the ground before stamping 3 layers of the trees I added some birds flying over head to finish off the front of the card along with Happy Birthday that I stamped and punched out using the classic label punch. At first I thought it looked a bit over the top with so much of the same colour but my Husband said he liked it so that was good enough for me (as his not big on compliments with my card making). Not that he doesn't like them he just isn't big on compliment in general so when he says is good I know he really likes it. Sorry about the blabbering on.

As I had used the thick Very Vanilla card I didn't need to add any layers to the inside of the card. So I stamped only half of the trees along with the birds on the right-hand side and just added a small sentiment to finish it off.  It's simple but enough. All the Items used in this project can be found in the 2018-2018 Annual Catalogue but be quick as there is very little time left to purchase retiring products like the "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set. If you would like to purchase these products please give me a call, email or PM so that I can help you with your purchase.

Colour Creations - Soft Sea Foam

http://whatcathymade.com.au/?p=3743 
Hi Everyone, Well here we are again with our lovely Colour Creations Blog-Hop and how sad is it that we are almost finished all the colours.
This week our colour is called Soft Sea Foam what a lovely colour so pretty I love it.

I used the Let is Ride stamp set and made it look as though the horse is running through the water. My card was made using a Pool Party card base the a White layer before adding a second layer in Soft Sea Foam. This is a sort of easel card with a difference as it opens like a regular card as well.

I used the sea stamp for the High Tide stamp set as I thought this looked the best a stamped tone on tone. I coloured my horse using the blender pens before adding this to the a layer for the easel part of the card.
As you can see from this photo when you pull the ribbon the easel lifts up revealing a messages at the top and bottom of the card. But it will also lay flat to post or if you would like it standing like a regular card as seen in the photo below.

All the items used in the project as in the current Occasions and 2018-2019 Annual Catalogues and will be carrying over to the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. if you would like to purchase any or all of the product used in the project please give me a Call, email or PM so that I might help you with your purchase.

Colour Creations - So Saffron

http://whatcathymade.com.au/?p=3718
Hi Everyone,
Wow here we are at week 47, this really is the pointy end of the Colour Creations Blog-Hop. I for one will be sad to see it end. I really have enjoyed making cards in every colour we have and I have loved seeing all the creations from all the other Hoppers as well. We really have had some beautiful cards and I know some of us have found some colours harder to work with than others myself included.
This week our colour is "So Saffron" and being Mother's day here in Australia on the 12th May 2019 I thought I would make a Mother's Day card, I used the Apron of Love stamp set and dies which are sadly retiring on the 3rd June 2019 for my card.
I used the Garden Impression DSP for my Apron and edging along with my oven mitt and I edged the apron in tranquil tide ink to match the strings and pocket and mounted this onto a So Saffron piece of card. I cut out the tools and when I dropped them onto my card the landed just as I have them glued and I thought they just looked prefect scattered down the right-hand side. I then stamped Happy Mother's Day using the White ink pad and place clear gem stones on the front to finish it off.
I only thing I didn't like about the stamp set is it says "MOM" not "MUM" so using a cotton tip I wiped out the top of the O to make it into a U before stamping and cutting out the oven mitt I placed this on to a foam pad before adding this to the front of the card.
I then cut out 2 more mitts and added them to the inside of the card with hearts in the matching colours and then stamped the Made with Love sentiment I then mounted this onto some So Saffron card stock and glued to the inside of the card.
All items used in this project can be found in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue (That ends on the 3rd June 2019) if you would like to purchase any or all of the items used in this project please give me a Call, Email or PM me (Australia Only) so that I can help you with your purchase.

Colour Creations - Smoky Slate

http://whatcathymade.com.au/?p=3701

Hello Everyone, how are we all doing this week?
We have a lovely colour for everyone this week called Smoky Slate, what a lovely warm gray colour this is. I have chosen to make a male card this week as I think this Colour and the stamp set I have chosen go together well.


I started off this a Smoky Slate card base and added a Coastal Cabana square topped with whisper White. I used my Stamparatus  to stamp my hats and fish hooks from the Best Catch Bundle and coloured them in using the marker pens. I stamped them and the Fish and Baskets using the Smoky Slate ink I then cut out the Fish and Baskets before mounting them onto the front of the card. I also stamped the card base using the crackle paint stamp and Smoky Slate ink. I do love the effect from this stamp. I sponged the front and the insert of the card with Smoky Slate ink to give the look of being a bit dirty.  I also cutout some of the small fishes using the dies. 

I stamped the Fisherman and sentiment and then grouped the cutout fish together and mounted this onto another Coastal Cabana layer before gluing to the inside of the card. I'm so glad that this set is carrying over from the Occasions Catalogue as I really love making men's cards.
All the items used in the project can be found in the 2018-2019 and the 2019 - 2020 Annual Catalogue or the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. if you would like to purchase any or all of the items used in this project please give me a call, email or PM so that I can help you with your purchase.

Colour Creations - Shaded Spruce

http://whatcathymade.com.au/?p=3676

Hi everyone, here we are at week 45 of the Colour Creations Blog-Hop only 5 more weeks to go. Wow where has this year gone.
Today our colour is Shaded Spruce and beautiful green colour and as green is my favourite colour I didn't find it hard to come up with a project. I chose to use the Tropical Chic stamp set and dies along with the matching DSP for this card. I also used a fancy fold to show case this card.
I started with a Granny Apple green card and the shaded spruce is in the DSP and the ink used to stamp the leaves.I stamped my leaves onto Granny Apple Green card before cutting them out and my flowers were stamped in Melon Mambo. I'm so glad that all of what I used will be carrying over into the 2019 - 2020 Annual Catalogue.
I used the layering square dies for the front of my card and the stitched rectangles for my sentiment.

I placed my Square on to dimensionals to give it more depth, but i glued the leaves on flat and then used more dimensionals for the sentiment.
I stamped more leaves on the writing panel on the back of the card. I will be writing a tutorial for this card on my FACEBOOK Group so keep an eye out for it in early May. (Probably Mother's Day Sunday) All the items used in the project are in the current 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue and will be carrying over to the new 2019-2020 Catalogue. If you would like to purchase any or all of the items used here please give me a call, email or PM me so that I can help you.

Bye for now
