Hello! Thanks for joining us for the first CASEing the Catty of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. It’s always fun to have new inspiration!
Join us as we choose any project to CASE from the Artistic Expression section of the catalogue – pages 106-159.
I’ve chosen a card from page 158 showing the Lined Alphabet stamp set & dies.
What caught my eye in this sample is the triangle lines & the ombre colours of the ‘baby’ across the middle. I used those elements to create a birthday (or other celebration) card using a Mint Macaron tone.
The Mint Macaron started with the DSP choice – I had the Mosaic Mood DSP on my table after creating the Tri-Fold Pocket Card for our team hope on Friday. That card (you can see it here) used a lot of DSP, but it didn’t use this particular pattern – which I love! So that become the card base.
The next step was to add the triangle features – which in this case are actually more of a hexagon – using the Stitched Nested Label Dies. The colours are Very Vanilla, Soft Sea Foam, Mint Macaron and Lost Lagoon. Lost Lagoon is actually a retired colour – but I needed a darker tone to complete the ombre effect – and Lost Lagoon is a favourite of mine! I wish it had been one of the returning colours during the revamp of 2018!
Once I had my triangle peaks of colour, I added the butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set – a returning favourite into the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. It goes perfectly with this DSP, having a natural mosaic effect!
The butterfly is stamped in Lost Lagoon ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and then coloured using Stampin’ Blends – Light & Dark Soft Sea Foam and Light & Dark Mint Macaron. The middle segments have been given a touch of sparkle with the Clear Wink of Stella pen.
The card is finished with a sentiment -T”time to celebrate!” from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. I’ve stamped this in Lost Lagoon ink and then punched it out using the Classic Label Punch. The pointed edges of this punch shape worked beautifully with the styling of my card!
So much love for the DSP in this catalogue! I’m going to need extra supplies of my favourites so I can keep making cards!!!
