Today I am sharing with you the card aimed at Casual Stampers which are those of us who have more than the basics but still not everything we think we need to create lovely cards. Again, I has been cased from the magazine we, as Stampin’ Up! Demos receive each quarter.
Thank you for joining me today as I am playing along with the Stamp ‘N Hop blog hop for November where we get to Case (Copy & Share Everything) the Annual Catalogue.
It is a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing their love of Stampin’ Up! You are able to join us if you like, but we do ask that you are a current SU! Demo & that you use current SU! products.
You may have arrived from Tracy’s blog where I’m sure you would have seen her fantastic project.
I couldn’t decide what to do for this challenge as I often use the SU! Catalogues for inspiration & often case them too. I decided to go with the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set along with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits as I needed to create a special birthday card (it’s not like I don’t have any in my stash!) You can find the card I cased on Page 157.
By clicking on the link below, you will be able to download your free tutorial to create your own card. The tutorial includes a list of supplies & measurements (metric & imperial). You may notice a bit of a difference in the layout of the tutorial as I am slowly doing updates to everything including my blog.
Thanks again for visiting my blog. Don’t forget to check out all the lovely Stampin’ Up! Demos hopping along – below the photo. When visiting, please leave a little love on their blogs.

To create my card I sponged a piece of Whisper White CS with Crushed Curry, Night of Navy & Elegant Eggplant Inks using a Stamping Sponge. This piece was then adhered behind a piece of Whisper white CS which had been die cut using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits. It was then layered onto a piece of Crushed Curry CS & then to the Base Card – Elegant Eggplant.
The large flower was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink before applying Elegant Eggplant Ink with a Sponge Dauber. The inner petals were highlighted with Night of Navy Ink using a Blender Pen before finishing off with Clear Wink of Stella & die cutting with the matching die from Eclectic Layers Thinlits.
The 2 flowers were once again stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS. The first flower was lightly shaded with Crushed Curry Ink using a Sponge Dauber. Again, the lower inner petals were highlighted with Crushed Curry & a Blender Pen before being die cut with the matching die from the Oh So Eclectic Thinlits & Clear Wink of Stella applied.
I used the same technique for the 2nd flower but this time using Night of Navy & Elegant Eggplant Inks.
The leaves were die cut with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits from a piece of Whisper White before Garden Green Ink applied with a Sponge Dauber.
The flowers & leaves were arranged onto the Card Front before being adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set& has been stamped direct onto the Card Front in Memento Tuxedo Black.
To complete the card I scattered Regals Candy Dots (retired) around the Card Front. You could easily replace the Dots with current products & colouring with the Stampin’ Blends.
I’m happy to say Jenni loved her card & hopefully you do too.
I’m sharing with you a card I created for a game we had on our Facebook Page last week. I am a little late in posting this as I had to make a quick trip to Brisbane on the weekend.
I love the Oh So Eclectic Bundle& as it was sitting on my desk from another project I decided to go with it I’m really happy with the way it turned out, especially the flowers as I’ve added Perfect Plumto the inner petals to highlight them a little. Never be afraid to play & experiment with colours. You will be surprised at how they turn out!

Thank you to every one of you who took the time to vote – it worked! Because of your votes, myself & 9 other lucky talented Demonstrators (from across the world) get to hop along with Kylie (Australia’s #1 Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator). I feel very honoured to be among this group, so thank you once again!
Last month the theme was Sympathy. It’s one of those cards that we only create if necessary & unfortunately this one is necessary. Well, for this blog hope, it is the same theme but creating a new project. I have had my card sitting on my desk for a couple of weeks now wondering how to fix a huge blunder but I think I have managed to cover it. Can you pick it? Hint – it is now covered by the 3 Facted Gems….. Love it when you can cover mistakes!

Today, I am sharing with you a card I created from a left over piece of Watercolour PaperI had used on a card a couple of days ago. Instead of wasting it, I thought it would be great to try & use the piece on something. As I had the “Naturally Eclectic” DSPsitting on my desk, it suddenly hit me that the colours matched perfectly with the DSP. Don’t you love it when this happens?
For the inside of my card, I cut a piece of the DSP, adhered a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Card to one side, layered it onto a piece of Whisper White Card before adhering to the inside of the Base Card –Night of Navy.
Do you recognize it? It is from the front of the Annual Catalogue. Not much difference, but I have managed to add my own interpretation to it. Don’t forget to use the Catalogue for inspiration.
There is a free tutorial for you by clicking on the link below to create your own card. It includes a list of supplies used on the card plus measurements (metric & imperial).
I have been playing lots with the Embossing Pastethe last few weeks – loving this stuff & also working on a couple of Creative Card Classes. One of the classes will be using the Paste, so be sure to book your spot.
I teamed the paste up with my new Oh, So Eclectic Bundlewhich only come in the post last week & has been sitting on my desk waiting & waiting.
Creative Cards are held the 1st & 2nd Tuesday of the month or the 1st & 3rd Saturday of the month….. You can find all the details on the Classes/Workshop Page.
My card today is so way out of my comfort zone with all the oranges of Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, So Saffaron & Garden Green. I am so happy with the card that I have actually decided to include it in one of the classes in the next month or so. Mind you, it doesn’t look much but it has taken me hours to finally create it what with all the playing & changing of colours, but hey that is the fun part of creating.
The flowers have been coloured & blended with my good ol’ Blender Pen. I don’t know what I would do without it. I then highlighted the flowers with a little Clear Wink of Stella. It brings out he colours so much more.
The leaves were stamped using the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink& again coloured with Old Olive Ink & Blender Pen. The Old Olive is a nice contrast against the Garden Green background.
I will let you in on a little secret, the circle was not originally on the card which meant the flowers were sort of lost in the background, so I sponged a die cut circle in So Saffron, popped them on & then onto the card. Made all the difference as it now looks like a completely different card.
I’m not gonna be mean & not share the tutorial today, so don’t forget to click on the link below to grab it so you, too can create a card.
