Welcome to a fun week at Caseing the Catty!! We are trying a few different challenges and this week, we are casing the colour scheme from the gorgeous Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.
This DSP is just so pretty and I love all the colours together.
Whenever I do a colour challenge, I always get out the cardstock in all the colours and see what inspires me. I didn’t want to use the Pressed Petals DSP (well, actually I did but I wanted to try something different).
I just got the Band Together stamp set and the co-ordinating
Detailed bands dies. This stamp set features a really large flower which is
great for colouring. I fussy cut my flower and coloured with Old Olive and
Rococo Rose blends.
I layered up with Crumb Cake, Night of Navy and embossed a piece of Pear Pizzazz with the 3d Layered Leaves embossing folder. I cut the band in Daffodil Delight. The centre piece does come out but I needed something to stamp the sentiment on.
Next up is my lovely friend across the ocean, Sandra.
We would love to see what you create with this colour combo! Share it over on at our Facebook Group.
It’s been an exciting, but full-on weekend!! I’ve been to the Onstage Local event in Melbourne with my fellow demonstrators! Onstage is held every 6 months with an Onstage Live event for 3 days (which is in Utah this time), and local events held throughout the world on the same weekend. Oh and it’s only for demonstrators, so if you want to come in April 2018, you’ll need to join up and become a demo!!
I also had the privilege of being asked to do a presentation of a bundle of products that are coming out for the 2018 Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues. You’ll have to wait until Tuesday to check them out!!
So this week, we are casing a Colouring Project from either the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue or the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. I decided to go with the Annual Catalogue since it’s been a while that I had a look through it.
With the arrival of the Stampin’ Blends, I also purchased a few of the colouring stamp sets. I decided this week to case the Hey You card, on the left on page 169 but I decided to use the other stamp in the set, the Good Vibes stamp.
I stamped firstly on Whisper White thick A4 cardstock, using Memento Black ink. I started off by colouring the word, Good Vibes using the Bermuda Bay pens as that’s one of my favourite colours! I then coloured the flowers in all the other colours! I like bright, what can I say!!
I then embossing a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock using the Layered Leaves embossing folder like the sample. I added a piece of Pear Pizzaza shimmer ribbon and a bow. I was actually surprised at how quickly this card came together.
Next up on the hop is the lovely Angela.
I’m off to bed now as I’m stuffed from such a big weekend!!
This week we are casing the Thanks section, pages 126 – 131, of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.
As I was flipping through this section, as soon as I saw the card on page 129, I knew which one I was doing for today! I love the Eastern Palace bundle, especially done in light colours.
I have cased the card on the right hand side. Now having said I like it in lighter colours, I’ve gone with a darker colour, Tranquil Tide! I love this colour and haven’t used it very much.
I used the Layered Leaves embossing folder. It’s one of the new 3d dynamic textured impressions embossing folders (try and say that fast!!).
I kept the same circle from the Eastern Medallions thinlits as I love these circles! I used the sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set and stamped it in Tranquil Tide on Vellum. I also used the matching Eastern gold vinyl stickers.
Of course, my new favourite gold accessory, mini sequins, has made an appearance again!!
Next up, is the amazing Kelly Kent!
