Welcome to this week’s CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. This week our inspiration comes from the Graceful Glass section, pages 164-179 of the Annual Catalogue. You may have arrived here from Rebecca’s gorgeous creation, thanks for continuing on with me. Make sure you visit all the Design Team’s Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.
This is the last week we’ll be CASEing from the Annual Catty for a while. Next week we’re into the new 2018 Holiday Catalogue. I can’t wait to get my Christmas Cards started this year.
This week I’ve chosen to CASE the card on page 172 of the Annual Catalogue. I’ve used the same colours but different stamp sets. That’s what CASEing the Catty is all about. Take your ideas from the Catalogue and use what you have to re-create them.
I wouldn’t have thought to put these colours together but I think they really work well together.
The card base is Tranquil Tide then I’ve added a layer of Coastal Cabana that’s been stamped with the background stamp Hardwood, I’ve used Coastal Cabana ink. I’ve made 3 banners in different sizes in Tranquil Tide, Grapefruit Grove and Water Colour Paper.
The Tranquil Tide banner has been heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder using the same Hardwood background stamp. The flower is from Love What You Do and has been stamped in Tranquil Tide ink then I’ve used an Aqua Painter to colour the flowers using Grapefruit Grove ink. The sentiment is from Varied Vases and I’ve added some Grapefruit Grove 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.
Marvi, my assistant, was on hand for the photo shoot. I think he liked my card this week as he didn’t try to destroy it.
