Ombre inspiration CTC#265 Week 2

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop CASEING the Catty!!

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE from our Stampin' Up! catalogues which are full of amazingness!!

This week we are sharing our inspiration from the 2nd Release Sale-a-bration catalogue.  I've been inspired by that sweet Lovely Lipstick card in the middle at the bottom.  

I've used the same colours and layout, but my main inspiration comes from the gorgeous ombre detail in the centre of the card.  On the original this is supplied by using Stampin' Blends, but I have used an inkpad and Stamparatus.  I've stamped the top image, moved the Stamparatus leaf down the hinge and then WITHOUT REINKING stamped the image again and again all the way down the card.  The images is one of those super useful background pieces from Label Me Bold.  

My feature images are from the totally adorable Little Ladybug!  

The inside of the card features simple stamping.

This is one of the cards for our class learning about the Stamparatus.  It's a simple but really effective technique!!

Up next on our hope is the wonderful  Tina.  

We love it when you join in the fun with us too.  You can easily add your project inspired by the 2nd release Sale-a-bration Catalogue onto our facebook challenge page.
