Hello Sunday visitors – the end of the weekend rolls around so fast, doesn’t it??
CASEing the Catty blog hops are always a great way to finish the weekend. Hopefully you found some craft time in yours – and maybe joined CTC#189 by sharing your project in our Facebook group..
There’s still 24 hours to participate in last week’s challenge (CTC#189), or you can start the week by creating for challenge #190 – pages 127-141 of the catalogue, featuring some of the samples from the Artistic Impressions section of the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue.
As always, the pages are filled with wonderful inspiration. This Beautful Day sample on page 134 caught my eye…
I love the layered look of the front of the card. I swapped the flower for the butterfly and changed up the colours to create this card…
The butterfly part of the card was created by stamping & black heat embossing the middle butterfly first. I also created a mask using copy paper which I placed over the first butterfly before stamping & black heat embossing the two butterflies either side. I love the strong & shiny look of the black embossing powder. It’s so lovely to have it back in the catalogue!
I coloured the butterflies using an Aqua Painter in Blushing Bride, Rich Razzleberry and So Saffron, and added a shadow above the butterflies in Crumb Cake. The butterflies also got a splash of Wink of Stella at the end!
Using snips, I cut the bottom edge from the butterflies and added DSP to the inside of the card.
As this was a card for a brand new team member who signed during the July recruiting special, I changed the sentiment to ‘hello’.
This is a set you’ll want to own – it’s called Another Wonderful Year and is filled with pretty fonts & great sayings!
August is a great time to work your way through some of your Annual Catalogue wishlist – you’ll collect Bonus Days vouchers for every $90 you spend. See all the details here.
Don’t forget that we’d love for you to join us for this challenge. All the action happens in our Facebook group. Click here to join.
You’ll also want to continue the hop to see what the other design team members have created using the Artistic Impressions pages as inspiration.
