CTC #87 - Artistic Expressions

Welcome to week 87 of the CASEing the Catty blog hop, this week we are looking at the Artistic Expression section of the catalogue which runs through pages 92 - 157.  That is a lot of pages to be inspired by, and choosing an inspiration project was not an easy task as so many of my favourite stamp sets can be found in this section.

I was finally drawn to the lovely set of cards on page 121 using the Playful Backgrounds stamp set.

I only made three of the set taking rough inspiration from the set in the catalogue, and utilising the wonderful new in-colours.

The first is this card using Dapper Denim, I double stamped the striped image to get the two tones of blue on the card. The sentiment is from Tin of Cards which you might have noticed that I have been using a bit lately.

This next one also uses the Tin of Cards sentiment, and the truly wonderful Sweet Sugarplum. I think this is my faviourite of the new in-colours, such a pretty dusky purpley pink. Adding some sequins gives it just a little bit of bling.

My final card is in Peekaboo Peach which is really vibrant, I thought this one would make a really fun birthday card and added gold sequin trim and gold ribbon.

I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week by adding a link to your project to the main challenge page using the link above.  Each month we look at all of the entries and choose a winner.

Time to hop on over and see what the wonderful Bronwyn has created.
