Creative Cat Color Inspiration Challenge #39 December 31, 2017

Welcome to the Creative Cat Color Inspiration Challenge #39 December 31, 2017 … All entries are due by January 6th!

This weeks color range is Black, Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Sahara Sand, and Very Vanilla.

I am so loving this color challenge! Since my goal was to have a weekly inspiration challenge that would stretch our group creatively, I am searching for creative color combos. Sometimes outside the box. With that in mind I am striving to make the colors varied and challenging! 

The weekly prize winners are drawn at random from among the Creative Cat Crew members AND since we would also love to see your creative ideas we do a SECOND drawing for those who follow along!

Just submit your entry to stampingcatcrew@gmail.com before the weekly deadline.  Be sure to include the color challenge number and your name! We will post a winner on the blog each week! Just have fun & play!

Also, if you want to become a member of the Creative Cat Crew it’s super easy and you can save money on a hobby you love,  Join us here!

Stampin’ Up 2018 Occasions Petal Palette Thank You card

Stampin’ Up 2018 Occasions Petal Palette Thank You card

Here’s a Sneak Peek of Stampin’ Up 2018 Occasions Petal Palette Thank You card.  I love so many things in this new catalog!  It has been so hard to wait to share it with you!   Just a bit longer and it goes live!!

Start with an A2 sized card base in Berry Burst cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″  Score and fold in half at 5.5″.  The Whisper White layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″, this is for the front and the inside.  Stamp the leaves in Old Olive ink and the sentiment in Berry Burst.  On a separate piece of white cardstock stamp the focal flowers in Momento ink.  Cut out the image using the Petal Palette thin dies.  Then color the image with the Stampin’ Blends markers.

Lay a piece of Tear & Tape down at a diagonal across the front and adhere the berry burst ribbon, bunching as you go.  Finally pop up the focal point using dimensionals, attach the Tutti Frutti Adhesive Sequins and Pearls.  Remember to make your envelope pretty!

And here is the video tutorial:

Here is a sneak peek at the Stampin’Up! Party Pandas Step Card Sale A Bration 2018, Yay!  I absolutely love the playfulness of this set!  The black and white pandas coordinate perfectly with the colorful Bubble & Fizz paper in the Sale A Bration catalog… So many fun things coming!

Step cards are actually super easy to make once you wrap your brain around the cuts and score lines.  I also added a video tutorial, be sure to check it out below 🙂  One of the cool things about step cards is the depth you get from the different layers and height.  Just remember to make sure your finished card can fit into the envelope, it’s easy to get carried away embellishing!

Merry Christmas wishes to all & a huge Thank You!

This time of year is such a natural time to slow down and reflect on the things that are truly important in life.  And yes, I have found that over the years this list changes.  Some things are constant for me.  My faith and my family being primary.  I try on different hats and see how they fit, both my family and myself.  Sometimes I have to let things go.  Yes, even good things.

There are times when work gets too busy and my plate is too full, like everyone.  That’s where you come in.  I LOVE WHAT I DO!  And I am so thankful for everyone that supports me and allows me to do something I derive so much joy from.  Which in turn allows me to share that joy with others. 

That happens in so many ways!  My local crafting friends who I spend so much time with and are such a joy!  I also love to see the ladies who come only to a few classes a year, but when I see them it’s like no time passed at all.  Then there are folks around the country who are reading the Stamping Cat Crew blog, and around the world who are interacting through YouTube!  Every time someone takes the time to comment on something is like getting a verbal hug!  How cool is that??  

So for all of the warm fuzzies I get from you all… Thank You!  And have a blessed New Year!
