Welcome to Caseing the Catty, although this week, we aren’t technically casing the catalogue! We are casing the flowers of the Ornate Garden Suite which is a bundle that is going to be a part of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue. But you can purchase it from now! It’s a lovely suite with 2 stamp set and 2 dies, designer series paper, ribbon and gems.
So you don’t need to have this suite to be able to join in. You just have to be inspired by the flowers of the suite. I had a look at the gorgeous Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and was inspired by the daisies on one of the sheets.
I decided to grab out my daisy stamp sets, Daisy Lane and Daisy Delight. After checking out the stamps, I went with Daisy Lane as it included the smaller daisy. For my colours, Stampin’ Up! are having a Keep Stamping challenge, and for the first challenge, the colours were Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Mango Melody, Terracotta Tile and Bermuda Bay. You don’t have to use all the colours so I went with Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight and Grapefruit Grove.
I then stamped my own background and layered it with Coastal Cabana. I added a Mint Macaron ribbon (cos that’s all I had) and then stamped the small daisy and punched it out twice. I really love the look of the layered daisy. I added a gold faceted gem for the middle. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I don’t know about you but I’ve been wanting to send cards this week to friends to cheer them up and I’ve found that 99% of my cards are birthday ones! So it’s time to start making cards with different sentiments.
I used the Stitched Label framelits for the sentiment.
Next up is the lovely Peta and her kitty, Marvi.
We would love to see how you’ve been inspired by the flowers of the Ornate Garden Suite over on at our Facebook group.
