We only have one more week to go at Caseing the Catty before we finish up for the year. Don’t worry, though, we will be back again early next year with the new Occasions catalogue!!
We are caseing the Christmas Trees featured in the 2015 Holiday catalogue this week. I thought I would have no trouble choosing a project but when I sat down to create, I was a little stumped!! I eventually found a card that I could case, on page 28, which features the Season of Cheer DSP which I somehow managed not to order!!
So I decided to have a go at creating my own background. I have used the Thick Whisper White card stock, which I love, and did a wash of Pool Party using my aqua blender. I let it dry and then stamped the tree from Project Life Hello December 2015 stamp set in Old Olive. I love how it turned out!!
I then stamped the poinsettia from the Reason for the Season stamp set in Old Olive and using the matching flower stamp, stamped the flower in Cherry Cobbler (Gotta love two step stamping with polymer stamps!). It was a bit darker than I intended so I did a second one in Real Red. I did two of each colour then hand cut them out.
I inked up the sentiment using markers and cut it out with my favourite die, Lots of Labels. I added a piece of the White Glitter ribbon (which is retiring, so make sure you get some as it is soo sparkly!!)
This is the Cherry Cobbler version.
And here is Real Red.
I hope you have been inspired to try to make your own background even if you don’t have the DSP.
Next up on the hop is the talented Julia Quinn.
Happy Christmas Hopping
