Sprinkles of life Rainbow card

This is my last piece of the rainbow sponging I made using the Irresistibly Floral Background Paper. It's a really quick and very effective way to create a background piece. This was a quick card to create.
The cupcake icing is clear embossed on white card ,
and has a little bit or wink of stella for sparkle.
The Sentiment is from one of the new sets in the Occasions Catalogue call Suite Sentiments. It is a great set with lots of sayings that coordinate with a whole range of stamp sets.

You can find the colour palette at the Colour INKspiration post here (click on the image below)

thanks for looking, Liz

Shameless CASE of Design Team Member Kelly Kent and her gorgeous cactus!!

I was lucky enough to receive a gorgeous handmade Birthday Card last year from Kelly Kent- one of the Design Team Members at both CASEing the Catty and Colour INKspirtation.

You can find the facebook pages for each of these groups by clicking on the icons below.

Kelly was a display stamper at Brisbane ONSTAGE this year and had the
 Oh So Succulent set to play with before we all saw it.
I loved her card and have shamelessy CASE'd it.

 This is Kelly's card:

and this is mine!

 I used one of the panels I made in my Sponge and Splash technique when I was creating for the Colour INKspiration challenge using the pastels. I made a whole stack of background pieces and Kelly's cactus seemed like a good way to use one of them. You can read my technique notes on that post here
 - click on the photo.

and here they both are, side by side!

I hand cut a freeform 'pot' and rubbed it with the stylus from behold for a bit of shape, then sponged it with Wisteria Wonder ink using the sponge daubers
The Oh so Succulent stampset and matching framelits are beautiful, and the framelits make it a dream to create. There are loads of pinterest samples around. Do check out Pinterest for more ideas. (Kelly and I are both on there)

Thanks for looking,
I have one more rainbow panel to share another day,

CTC#111 Sale-A Bration - such an exciting time of year!

Welcome to the CASEing the Catty bloghop for this week where we are taking inspiration from any of the fabulous projects available in the new Sale-A-Bration catalogue.
I wasn't sure where to start so thought I would have a go at one of the kits!

I cut up one of the cards to make this cute box

The kits come with everything to make a sweet set of 8 notecards.  They don't however, come with the pool party ribbon - I added that in, was well as the enamel dots, and the paper doily( in the two I designed different from the set).
I made up half copying the pattern but had a play with some other stamp sets in my collection for  two of the others. One of them  I even turned inside out so that the spots are on the outside.
made following the pattern
This kit uses colours from the Subtles range, so if you purchased some subtle pens, some subtle card and some subtles enamel dots or coordinating ribbon you would be well on your way to spending $90 and earning the kit for free.
made playing with things I already had
I added the Lace doilies, the petite petals flowers, the enamel dots and I coloured the white baker's twine with So Saffron ink here.

I cut up one of the cards and used an extra piece of Pool Party Cardstock (18 x 18.8cm) to create the box. I will say that it is a snug fit and the envelopes are on a little angle- so a set of 4 in the box is plenty. The dimensions are in the photo below if you would like to make your box the same size as this one. It is 3 cm deep. If you used two of the pockets joined together you would have quite a deep square box.
The kits are great but you can certainly play with all the elements and make them your own. have fun!

Next on the blog is Kelly,

But if you go back you will find Kathryn

If you would like to show us one of your creations inspired by the fabulous Sale A Bration kits you can load your photo onto the Facebook Page here.

If you get lost you can find the full crew here.

thanks so much for looking,

Simple Happy Birthday with Lift me Up

A quick card today using a leftover watercolour piece on my desk.

the Lift Me Up set is great for quick cards because there is so much detail in the image that you don't need much else to dress it up. It's the star of the card.
I used the marker to rubber technique to an up only part of the sentiment for the front, and the other half of the inside!
this is a mix of

 The paper is from the Cupcakes and Carousels paper pad, it is just so easy to work with.

Thanks for looking, Back to the craft room now preparing for my next class!
