Welcome back for the second time tonight!! I’m back with Caseing the Catty as always at 7pm!! We are casing the colours of the Playing with Patterns DSP. There are a lot of colours in this fun pack of paper – Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy, Purple Posy and Whisper White.
So after I realised that I had created a card using the wrong dsp, I whipped up another one in the same layout in the right colours!!
I’ve used the Peony dies and created 2 flowers in Calypso Coral. Now these flowers are a little difficult to put together but once you know how, it’s easy!! Here’s an picture to show how.
So there are 4 pieces of the flower. On the top left image, you tuck the smallest piece into the next sized piece. Then turn it over (see the bottom left image) and make sure the 2 edges line up. Then glue together. Repeat for the next two layers, tucking into the slot and lining up the back. I hope that helps!!
Onto my card, I’ve used a piece of the Play with Patterns DSP for the background. I cut a strip of whisper white and cut the edges using the Stitched Nested dies. The sentiment is in Calypso Coral and is from the Tasteful Touches stamp set. I also stamped a couple of leaves in Coastal Cabana from the Prized Peony stamp set and cut out using the Peony dies.
So in case you were wondering, here’s my other card, using the colours of the Artistry Blooms DSP.
I used the Artistry Blooms DSP for the background and I also embossed it using the Subtles embossing folder for a bit more texture.
Next up is the lovely Peta.
We would love to see your creations using this colour combo so please share over on at our Facebook group.
Welcome to the ESAD 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue blog hop!!
I’m so excited to play with my new goodies. I am loving the new Peony Garden Suite. The colours are just so pretty!! They are Basic Gray, Gray Granite, Petal Pink and Whisper White. And the matching Peony Garden DSP is stunning!!
So I started off with a base of Gray Granite and added a piece of the DSP. I then cut a stitched rectangle from the DSP as well. I inked up the flower from Prized Peony using markers (I love this technique!) in Petal Pink and Old Olive and cut out using the Peony dies.
The suite also includes Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon and I added a piece across the card. I then added the flower and the sentiment which uses the Tasteful labels dies and the matching Tasteful Touches stamp set. I am a big fan of the stitched dies but I have to say I really love the embossed dies in these Labels dies. I added a couple of the clear Elegant Faceted gems for a bit of bling.
I was excited to see that next up is my SU travel buddy, the very talented Bronwyn Eastley!! I can’t wait to see what amazingness she has created.
Here is a list of everyone in the hop today, just in case you get lost.
I’m so excited to share some of my favourite new goodies from the brand spanking new 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue!!
This week, we are casing our favourites from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue.
My new catty order has been shipped (yay!!) but not here yet, so I’m sharing a couple of projects using the goodies I received on pre-order.
I love the Onate Garden suite which has been available since April. I’m casing the Thank You card on page 64.
I’m really enjoying the World of Good Specialty DSP and the new brass foil. So the base of my card is Cinnamon Cider (one of the new in-colours). I’ve added a piece of vellum under the foil which I’ve cut out with the Ornate Borders dies. I used Mossy Meadow cardstock for the piece behind the sentiment. I also stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Mossy Meadow (which apparently needs to be re-inked!!)
I couldn’t stop at just one card this week!! I just purchased the Tasteful Touches bundle which includes the Tasteful Touches stamp set and the Tasteful Labels dies. I really got this bundle for the dies as there are so many great labels to use. But I’d seen a few cards done using the stamps so thought I would get both. The In Good Taste DSP is part of this suite and it’s fabulous!! It has lots of great textures including wood, tiles and fabric.
I like the cards on page 123 so I decided to case the blue tile card on the right hand side.
I have cased this fairly closely. I’ve used the same dsp but I’ve used a different die and stamp for the sentiment. I also did my flowers in Crushed Curry. I don’t have the In Good Taste Elements so I used scalloped lace trim.
I love this DSP!! I need more!! (Luckily, there’s another pack in my order that’s on the way!!)
Next up is the lovely Shannon. You are going to love her creation this week.
