Each week, at Case-ing the Catty, a group of talented demonstrators get together and CASE (Copy and Share Everything) from the latest Stampin’ UP! catalogue.
This week, we are up to the Colour Collections and in particular, we are looking at the latest 2015-2017 collection.
When I first saw these colours, I wasn’t particularly taken with them however after playing with them at convention and then receiving my pre-order, I have fallen in love with some of them and like the rest. You can guess which ones I love!!!
I decided to continue in the theme of Case-ing the catty and went with the box on page 22. I decided to turn it into a card instead.
See the box on the left, kinda cute, isn’t it! Choose Happiness is a stamp set which I didn’t notice at first but is slowly becoming one of my go to sets. I made two versions of this card (well actually I made a mistake and then decided to make two! LOL).
On the first card, I stamped the birds randomly using Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder and Crushed Curry. On the background, I stamped the leaves on Tip Top Taupe (say that fast three times!!) cardstock using Tip Top Taupe ink. I also stamped the sentiment in Tip Top Taupe.
So on the second card, (which is what I meant to do in the first place!!) I stamped the bird on a piece of scratch paper and then onto the cardstock. I think the technical term is second generation stamping. Fancy, I know!
I hope you like my cards this week. Please let me a comment and let me know.
