This week at Case-ing the Catty, we are tackling the Artistic Expression section of the catalogue. This is a huge section with so many amazing cards to choose from. I might have to do a few more for next week as well!!
Seeing as it was so large, I decided to do two cards. (I also couldn’t decide!!) For my first card, I chose the Hope card on page 117 as I love the Striped Scallop thinlits but I don’t use them often enough and I haven’t used my Watercolor Words set yet either.
Here is my version. I went with Soft Sky as the base, Cherry Cobbler for the sentiment and Garden Green and Lost Lagoon for the flowers and petals.
I lightly stuck down the scallops with random glue dots. I also added some sequins instead of rhinestones as I have recently discovered the Metallics Sequin Assortment in the catalogue. There are white, black, silver, gold and clear sequins in 3 shapes!!
For my second card, I decided to case the card on page 133. I like the look of the stitching but there’s no way I’m getting out my machine just for that!!
So I got my trusty real red marker and drew some lines around the word once I had stuck them on. Lucky we are not aiming for perfection!! lol. I should mention that the Layered Letters Alphabet is so easy to use!! The letters stamp really nicely.
I also used the Alphabet rotary stamp to do the sentiment. Lesson to be learned. When creating a word with the rotary stamp, do not take a short cut and start part way along the stamp. You won’t have enough space!! Ask me how I know!!!
I hope you like my cards this week. To continue on the hop, you can visit Rebecca B here.
