Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY.
To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit and we love to CASE from our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues (CATTY).
This week, we are CASEING a sketch!! Open your Annual Catalogue at page 58 and check out the geranium card - this is the sketch!!
My card is one of the ones that will be in my Embossing techniques class next week. I've used the Hive embossing folder, then added white ink using a blending brush, then stamped it with Soft Suede ink and Ranunculus Romance stamp set and then also distressed the corners a little using my fingers.
Having the 2 part embossed panel as per the sketch really made this more interesting I think - and I certainly would not have thought to do this without this fun challenge!! Originally I had the embossed pieces go right to the edges of the card as per the sketch, but it just didn't work for me!
The embossing was done on Kraft cardstock, which I've also used with the Ranunculus dies. The other stamping and die cutting was done on Very Vanilla cardstock, stamped using Soft Suede and coloured using Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends. I've also flicked a little Soft Suede ink using a water painter!!
Inside the card is some simple stamping and a bit of colour. Now it's time for you to keep hopping around to see lots of brilliant ideas with this great sketch.
|Up next is the amazing Michelle and her equally amazing Pokemon card that couldn't be more different than mine!
