Here I am back with my regular blog spot with the Caseing The Catty crew. Welcome if you are starting here with me or if you have hopped over from the talented Peta.
Today we are featuring our favourite projects from the Occasions catalogue. Like last week, how do you choose a favourite when the Stampin’ Up! catalogues are filled to the brim with amazing projects. So I went back to the first thing that caught my eye all the way back in November when I first saw the Occasions catalogue.
This card here, featuring the Perennial birthday stamp set. I think it was the drama of the black ink against those lovely bright colours. I like a bit of drama.
Here I made my own version copying the sample closely. I always admire projects like this, where the stamps are pieced together to create a gorgeous arrangement. It wasn’t as hard as I first thought it was going to be, I just stamped around in a circle so to speak in Basic Black Archival ink. I prepped my sentiment first, and used that as a guide as I stamped my flower arrangement.
Once finished, I grabbed an aqua painted and used it like a paint brush, rather than flooding the project with water. Picking up some ink from the lid of my ink pad and painting to colour my stamps. I wasn’t too fussed if I went outside the lines here and there either.
I stamped a few extra pieces, which I fussy cut and adhered with some dimensionals.
I had a little play with these stamps to create a more simplified card, but still bright and fun.
I used several of the flower and leaf images to create a little scene like they popping out of a flower box. I love that sentiment beneath the main one too. So sweet.
Next up in the hop is the lovely Megan Lenske.
After you’ve enjoyed the awesome hop with the team, I’m looking forward to seeing your CASE over in our challenge group. Be sure to load up your creation by 6pm next Sunday night, May 6.
Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
