Welcome to another week of fabulous projects at with CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge crew!
This week we are getting all romantic with the beautiful Floral Romance section of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. Expect to see lots of pretty florals and soft colours, but also some bright and fun creations as you hop your way around this week.
This week I’ve combined a few elements that caught my eye in the catalogue pages, particularly the colours of the card at the bottom of this image.
That combo of pinks and green, the butterflies (I can’t get enough of them at the moment!) and the white space of the other two cards led me down the path to creating this card.
The butterflies are stamped with black ink then I used sponge daubers to add Granny Apple Green, Lovely Lipstick, and Calypso Coral. The sponge daubers are a great way to quickly add colour to the butterflies, and because you colour outside of the lines (see below) you end up with a coloured edge when you punch it out, rather than the white edge, which I think is a very pretty look.
For the base fo the card I’ve used the Floral Romance colour palette of Petal Pink and Whisper White. The white has been run through the Subtle Texture EF and I love the texture this gives it but also the way it softens the colour so it’s more of an off-white.
The other elements from the example cards I took inspiration from are the green ribbon (woven Lemon Lime Twist ribbon for my card) and the white embossing on a black panel for the sentiment. White embossing is always a winner in my book!
So while the card I’ve ended up making with is quite different from the ones that gave me my inspiration, you can see where all the elements have come from. This is the beauty of CASEing, especially with all the stunning examples Stampin’ Up! gives us in the catalogue. When you’re stuck for ideas it’s the best place to start – sometimes it can be as simple as copying the layout but changing the paper or stamps used, but it can also be the colour palette, the shapes, the elements used, a technique, or the way layers are put together.
So please play along with us and share your own CASEd creation on our Facebook page via this link.
And for lots and lots more inspiration keep hopping along through the crew’s projects this week. There’s so much to get inspired by and lots of CASEs to CASE!! Next up is Shannon Kissane with one of those beautiful romantic creations I was talking about.
