Hi Everyone, and welcome to this week’s CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. This week we have one of my favourite styles of challenges – A sketch challenge! Absolutely anything goes – just base it (loosely or otherwise!) on the sketch. Feel free to flip the sketch if you want, or interpret it in a non-standard way – we don’t mind at all!
Page 130 is where the inspiration card comes from, but I have also included a ‘layout’ style graphic to help you with the sketch. My card tonight came together really fast, and uses one old and two new stamp sets.
If you have followed my blog for awhile, you would know that Dino Days is one of my favourite stamp sets. I was over the moon when it carried over into this years catalogue. I love how many cute and fun Dino’s you can create in a whole range of colours. And they are all smiling – how can they not make you happy!
I have teamed the Dino with a piece of DSP from the Forever Greenery pack – this paper pack is gorgeous – A beautiful combination of multiple shades of green, including the new Just Jade. I have teamed the ‘greens’ with Calypso Coral to give a nice contrasting pop of brightness. The rectangular panel was created using one of the stamps in the Pattern Play stamp set. This is the set that is bundled with the oh so popular Playful Alphabet dies. To be honest – I ummed and aahed about whether to buy the bundle or just the dies…..but I am so glad I got the bundle. I am using this stamp set on everything – creating my own DSP panels, decorating envelopes…everywhere! You won’t be disappointed buying the bundle – I guarantee!
Finally – the sentiment comes from the new stamp set ‘From All Of Us’. I love the fun fonts in this set – perfect for kids cards.
I hope you have enjoyed this card, I would love to see what you come up with for this sketch challenge. Just upload a pic of your project to our facebook group so we can all be inspired.
