CASEing the Catty #133 – Love & Sympathy

Welcome to the CASEing the Catty blog hop, which takes place every Sunday.

This week we’re CASEing (Copying & Sharing Everything or Copying & Selectively Editing) the Love & Sympathy pages of the catalogue.

No automatic alt text available.

There’s lot of inspiration tucked away in these pages – and lots of gorgeous projects to start your creative journey.

I was intrigued by the cut out portion of this card…

And decided to recreate it in pinks with a dragonfly theme!

The base is shimmery white.

Using the dragonfly outline die, I cut a dragonfly from the edge of the card and from a separate piece of shimmery white cardstock, I cut the largest detailed dragonfly die.

I adhered the large dragonfly to the inside of the card.

Then, using a retired washi tape (using my jeans first to desticky it a little), I created a mask around the edges and coloured the middle rectangle with my Aqua Painter in Sweet Sugarplum ink.

The final step was to add the embellishments to the front of the card – mini dragonflies, washi tape, sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous & bling – new rhinestones & glitter enamel dots.

I am loving the new washi packs that come in similar colours.  I’ve used the pinks today, which is the Basics Pack 1.

I kept it all in the pink theme, because this card is going to someone who loves pink!


Now it’s your turn to join our weekly challenge!

All the action is over on Facebook.

If you’re interested in a design team opportunity, we’re taking applications in June and looking to add quite a few more design team members to expand on our already awesome team.

Speaking of awesome design team, next up is the gorgeous Liz Gross

Getting Fancy with Wetlands

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a Wetlands card with you.  With all the new catty things on my shelf, I’ve been neglecting some of the old faithfuls.  So just in case you missed them too …

The starting point for this card was seeing a beautiful card by my friend Narelle using this style of gatefold (tutorial for a gatefold card here).  I then added in the Wetlands wading birds and proceeded to cover them up with more wading birds on a belly band, creating layers of colour.  The background watercolouring is a technique called Colour Blocking.  It is achieved by colouring in a clear block with Stampin’ Write Markers which is spritzed with water before stamping onto Very Vanilla cardstock.  I intentionally left this card sentiment free so it can be used for any occasion.  I used from the  ‘water drops’ DSP from the Moonlight Stack in keeping with my theme (though realised once it was stuck down that I would have preferred it up the other way!).  I had a great time cheating on the standard C6 card with this funky gatefold version.  A little more cardstock (though if you use 12×12, you’ll get two cards from 1 piece), but a great finish.  Kelly x
