Creative Cat Color Inspiration Challenge #32 November 12, 2017

Welcome to the Creative Cat Color Inspiration Challenge #32 November 12, 2017 … All entries are due by November 18th!

This weeks color range is Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Crushed curry, Daffodil Delight, and White .

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!

Stamping Cat Crew 2017 Fall Stamp Camp

We had a great Stamping Cat Crew 2017 Fall Stamp Camp this year!  Lots of new faces, many met at the Evergreen State Fair this year!  Yay!

 

The displays were lovely, full of all kinds of samples from the current 2017 holiday catalog and regular catalog.  In the fall we try to have a full fall & Halloween idea display table and a full Christmas idea display table.  

Every year we include a table of all the current all inclusive kits available.  This year we had some new additions, like the Love Today Planner kit and the Soft Sayings card kit.

We had some demonstrators who taught for the first time this year, they did a fabulous job!  And the feedback I have had from my crafty friends has been all positive!  So looking forward to continuing in our new venue!  It was simply perfect!

Stampin' Up! Artistically Asian Sponged card

This Stampin’ Up! Artistically Asian Sponged card was so fun! I love the look of sponging, and using the Timeless Textures stamp is a perfect “water look” for the base of this card . This weeks color challenge used Pacific Point, Marina Mist, Soft Sky, Real Red and Basic Black.

I started with an A2 card base cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″.  The Real Red layer is 5.25″ x 4″.  And the White sponged layer is 4 1/8″ x 3 7/8″.  The video shows the details on how to do the stamping off and the sponging technique.  Remember to make your envelope pretty!
