Stampin' Cat Marbled Bloomin' HeartStampin' Up!

This weeks CTC Challenge is to CASE the Love & Sympathy section of the 20107/2018 Annual Catalogue.  I found it difficult this week as there’s so many beautiful cards in this section.  I didn’t know which one to CASE!

CTC 133

I decided to case the “Love is in the Air” card on page 88.

Stamping' Up!

I’ve CASEd the design but changed the colours.  I thought this card would look great in some of the new In Colours.  I used Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig for my flowers.

I love how you can see through the Bloomin’ Heart.  The new Marbled Background stamp looks amazing in Pool Party ink.

I die cut a Heart out of my card base then attached a beautiful Blooming’ Heart behind it.  I die cut another Blooming’ Heart out of Whisper White then used the small butterfly die from the Butterflies Thinlits to cut a butterfly out of my heart.  Then I attached that to a Powder Pink butterfly.  So the pattern on my butterfly is the same as the pattern of the heart.

The sentiment is from Number of Years stamp set.  If you look really closely you’ll also see some Silver Metallic Thread behind the butterfly.

I love the Challenges at CTC.  I’d never really noticed this card in the catalogue before.  I like how this card turned out so much everyone will be making it in my  class this week.  I hope they like it as much as I do.

Thanks for stopping by.
