Welcome to the last CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop for the 2018-2019 Catalogue! In a few days the new catalogue will be live and we will all be able to order as many of the new products as we want – so exciting!
But – for this week, we are opening the challenge right up and CASE-ing anything you want from the catalogue. Pick absolutely anything, a colour combo you like, a card layout you like, be inspired by your favourite suite – anything!
Tonight I am case-ing a card layout shown on page 82 in the Twinkle Twinkle suite, shown in the below image. It is the pink one in the centre.
The card layout is a simple one, and is perfect for featuring double sided DSP (or patterned paper). I have used the Tropical Escape DSP, and cut a regular sized panel piece, and then just cut a strip off the side. When I stuck the two pieces of DSP down, I just flipped one of them over – so easy!
The stamped image is from the retiring Postcard Pals stamp set, a set containing three lined images that you can then colour however you like – I used Stampin’ Blends. The sentiment is stamped on granny apple green cardstock to match the card base. (The sentiment comes from the same stamp set as I was going for quick and simple).
Once I was finished I decided it needed something more, I had a scrap of blushing bride cardstock on my desk so I slid in a randomly cut piece of it, slid it in behind the stamped panel and decided to call it done! I have been trying my hand at scrapbooking lately, and what it has taught me is to not completely glue down elements until you are 100% sure you like where it is, that way you can (as I did on this one) slide in other elements behind them to create additional layers.
We would love to have you join in this challenge to say a final farewell to this catalogue – click the link below to go directly to our facebook page.
