Social Stamping - Brights!

The Social Stamping with Kelly Kent blog hop is back for 2021. Our theme this month is Brights! 

I can't wait to see everyone's take on this. I've known about the hop for so long and been tossing ideas around only to find myself making the card today. When will I learn?? There are so many ways to use the theme, but today I've gone with colouring and believe it or not I actually used every one of the Brights colours.

I've stamped the wild flower image from Dragonfly Garden onto Whisper White (because I still have some) using Granny Apple Green ink. Then I've used all but 3 of the colours in my Stampin' Markers for the flowers and leaves while not being too fussy so little bits of white still showed. I've added the greeting from A Touch of Ink in Pacific Point, then I've embossed this piece with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. This was matted onto Gorgeous Grape cardstock and attached to my base card of Thick Whisper White with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The dragonfly was stamped in Pacific Point ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the Dragonflies Punch. I've used my Wink of Stella pen and coloured the wings with Bermuda Bay ink and added it to the front using a Stampin' Dimensional.

See if you can work out what Bright colour went where:

Actually I CASEd myself for this card. I made the card below at a recent class and it was a favourite of a few attendees, it was so easy to create - stamps, ink and paper (maybe a punch to help out). A bit off topic as it was Very Vanilla card and Early Espresso ink.

Next up we have the lovely Mandy and a less colourful palette choice I believe:

#CTC306 CASE a Glitter/Sparkly Project


CASE a Glittery/Sparkly Project - Bring on the Bling

I've decided to use the image 2nd from the right on Page 80. The heat embossing was my target for the sparkly aspect, although I opted not to do any for my CASE.

For one more week you can choose the Oh So Ombre DSP as your free Sale-a-bration item with qualifying purchase.
I've cut strips of the Blackberry Bliss Oh So Ombre sheet with the dot pattern and adhered them to a panel of Whisper White which was then added to a base of Blackberry Bliss.

I've diecut a Rectangle Stitched Die from the plain Blackberry Bliss Oh So Ombree sheet and added Bokeh dots with my Whisper White Craft Stamp pad and a sponge. I'd punched circles using 1/2", 3/4" and 1" onto scrap card for my stencil.

The butterflies were cut using the Butterfly Beauty dies with Blackberry Bliss and Whisper White cardstock which were adhered together and trimmed to become single butterflies. The greeting is from A Touch of Ink stamped onto Whisper White card using Blackberry Bliss ink..

We would love to see your take on a Glittery or Sparkly project from the January-June mini catalogue. Just add it to our Facebook page using the link over on the right.

Next on the hop we have Judy and her delightful project:

#CTC305 CASE Sale-a-bration Donkey Sketch

CASE the Donkey card on page 5 of the Sale-a-bration 

Use this sketch to help you

My base is Night of Navy. The mat of Sahara Sand has been embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing folder. Onto that I've added three envelopes diecut using the Snails Dies in Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo.

I've stamped a snail image from Snailed It in Black Memento ink onto Whisper White and coloured with Stampin' Blends, then diecut with the Snails Dies and added Stampin' Dimensionals to the bottom half and Multipurpose adhesive to the top half so the snail ended up being even on the card. The greeting is also from Snailed It and trimmed to add a word to each envelope. The mushrooms were added in lieu of bling.

Just don't ask where my inspiration came from as it is obviously a very random take, but the three colours of my envelopes are close to the stripes. There is a focal critter, and the rose is now a mushroom. That's what I love about the CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenges - rules are very loose!!

We'd love to see your take on the Challenge this week. Please add your card to our Facebook page using the link over on the right.
