Thanks for joining me for another week of CASEing the Catty.
This is one of my favourites cards to design each week because the catalogue is full of so much inspiration!
With May almost upon us, the theme this week is CASEing the Catty to create a Mother’s Day card – or conversely, taking a Mother’s Day sample from the catalogue and turning it into something else!
If you’re able to join us for the challenge this week, or to see what everyone is making, head over to our CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge Facebook page where all the action is!
What inspired me this week?
I’m still having a last play with some of the retirement sets!
You know that old addage – you don’t know what you’re missing until it’s gone? I feel like that about some of our stamp sets.
I haven’t used them in ‘forever’, but now that they are going to retire, I feel like I didn’t get enough use out of them!!!
Picture Perfect is one of those sets – it truly is stunning to use!!!
So, out it came for CTC#126.
I was inspired by the elements of this box. I loved the black, white, pink & gold colour theme.
I used these elements to create a card. It features a mix of ‘old’ & ‘new’.
On the retirement list is the Picture Perfect stamp set, Oh So Succulent stamp set (love that Mother’s Day sentiment!), Pop of Pink DSP (for the black & white effect), and Blushing Bride sequin trim.
I’ve also used Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist (new In Colors) for the flower & leaves.
The mix of old & new also includes some of the retiring sequin trim & a comparison to the new ‘tiny’ sequin. You’re going to love the new version!
I carried the colour theme to the inside of the card too…
The ‘you are made of wonderful’ sentiment goes so well with the Mother’s Day theme!
Next up on the Mother’s Day CTC#126 hop is the talented Elizabeth Gross.
Thanks again for visiting, and don’t forget to join us on Facebook.
