Casing The Catalogue – CTC110

By | February 14, 2017

Hi there

Last month I participated in another challenge site – Casing the Catalogue – which is run by Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.  For this challenge they were casing pages 4 – 7 from the new Occasions Catalogue.

I don’t have any of the stamp sets from this suite but decided to use the layout from the floral card on page 6 and change the stamp set.   I also changed the orientation of the card.

I’ve used the single stamp ‘Stylized Birthday’ along with the flowers from Mixed Borders.  The flower stamp is an outline stamp so I coloured in the flowers with Rose Red, Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive and Crushed Curry ink.  I find for small images like this I prefer to use a Blender Pen rather than an Aqua Painter.  My ‘go to’ black ink is Memento Black and I used this to stamp the sentiment.

The card base is Rose Red which I ran through the Big Shot with the Fluttering Embossing Folder.

Don’t forget to use the catalogues as inspiration for your cards – they’re a great resource.

Well tomorrow I’m off to do my First Aid refresher course 🙂  Enjoy your day.
