Happy Sunday, stamping friends! Thanks for being here on the second stop of this week’s CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge Crew Blog Hop. I hope you’ve just popped on over form Shannon’s beautiful creation, if not then make sure you hop all the way back to her by following the link at the bottom of everyone’s posts.
This week we are CASEing the colour scheme of the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper collection in the new 2019-20 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. Full disclosure, this is not my favourite DSP in the new catty, but the colours in the DSP that we are using for our inspiration this week are absolutely fabulous – Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Pear Pizazz, Rococo Rose, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla.
As usual I couldn’t possibly stop at just one card and have created four to share with you (I actually got completely carried away and made even more, but I’ll only make you look at these four!) They use various feature stamp sets and all have sentiments from my favourite new stamp set for the week, Praiseworthy Prose. It is such a nice stamp set which would look equally good on the front or inside of a card.
This first card uses the gorgeous new In Color colour Rococo Rose, which I am so in love with, paired with Merry Merlot, Soft Suede, and Crumb Cake.
The flowers are stamped with Abstract Impressions in the four feature colours. I love this stamp set for being able to create beautiful floral images without having to line everything up perfectly. You can quite randomly stamp the images and layer colours and it looks great. Perfect for when you have a ten-month-old baby on your lap grabbing at everything, as I did when I was stamping this.
The next card features the gorgeous Beauty Abounds stamp set and a palette in Night of Navy, Soft Suede, and Crumb cake.
This card uses all the neutral colours together and they work so well. When SU! did the colour revamp last year they shifted Night of Navy, Mossy Meadow, and Merry Merlot into the Neutrals collection, because people tend to use them as neutral colours.
The feather stamp is from the Hugs from Shelli Paper Pumpkin kit – the stamp set from this kit is one I will keep using because it is so lovely. I especially love this feather.
The last card I want to share with you is actually the first one I made and probably my favourite. It uses another retired stamp set which I will not be parted with – Petal Palette. I stamped the large leaf figure in Crumb Cake, then Soft Suede, then Blueberry Bushel. Ok, so I’m straying a little from the prescribed colour palette, but I just thought the brighter blue of BB would work well with what I had in my mind.
On all the cards I have stamped the images and sentiment first on normal weight Whisper White, then embossed it with the Subtle Texture EF. I love the way this adds some, well, subtle texture, and it softens the Whisper White. Each card also has some of the Linen Thread on it.
All of these cards are being sent out as happy mail this week to give some special people a paper hug. Make a card, send a card!
Next up on the hop this week Julia with a beautiful card that really celebrates the neutrals in this colour scheme. There’s a lot of creative possibilities with this palette so we would love for you to create something and share it with us on the challenge Facebook Page as well.
Thanks for stopping by,
