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.
