You Make a Difference for Graceful Glass chapter CTC#193

Hello and Welcome to CASEING the CATTY Sunday Night Blog Hop!

Our challenge is to use the Stampin' Up! catalogue as inspiration for projects and then to encourage you to join in the challenge with us too!!

This week, we are CASEING (Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit) from the Graceful Glass chapter of the Annual Catalogue.  This is the last chapter of the Annual Catalogue and what an absolute beauty!!  It's full of some amazing inspiration and gorgeous images.

Eventually, I decided to share my inspiration from the Share What you Love suite on page 176.  This is a beautiful page and the suite has some lovely images and wonderful sentiments.  

The first project to catch my eye was the lovely card on the bottom left of the page.  I thought this sentiment would be perfect for a scrap page (I'm really on a mission at the moment - so I can really see a Scrap Page Title in almost everything!!!  teehee).    

This title was created by stamping every letter individually using the Making a Difference stamp set.  While it takes a little bit of time, it's actually quite easy to stamp the words because the font is sooooo easy to work with AND the stamp set is photopolymer and so lining up is a breeze!! The embossed panel in the background of the title has been swiped with the Whisper White ink pad to highlight the embossing, but it's a bit tricky to see in the photo.  

The second lovely element on my page was inspired by the card directly above the original inspiration on the left of the photo.  Can you notice the two tone stamping on the sentiment?  It's been inked with Petal Pink first and then some Calypso Coral sponged over the bottom half of the sentiment.  My flag behind the doily is a little narrower than the original - this is all I have left of this DSP!!  I've just LOVED the designs and colours, but especially, I've loved the card stock weight of this DSP.  It's perfect for cards, book marks, gift boxes - everything really!!

My tiny bit of journalling was inspired by the 'hello' card illustrated right in the very centre of the layout on page 176.  I've added a lovely Stitched Label shape for the journalling panel.

I've also been inspired by the total photo layout, and added some Wood Textures DSP, some Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut DSP, and some pearls behind my photos and feature embellishments.  I've been sharing lots of inspiration for scrapping using the catalogue in my last few posts - and I've really loved the process of using lots of card ideas on each page!!!

Up next is the lovely Rebecca sharing her fabulous project inspired by the Graceful Glass chapter!  Be sure to hop around the whole team, there is an amazing array of gorgeousness to inspire you and to help you look at the catalogue again and again!!

You are always invited to join the challenge with us too!!  It's easy to add your photo to our facebook challenge page and you'll see lots more ideas there too!!  

Until Next Time,
Happy Stamping,
Love Julia   x
