Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, where utilse the projects within the current Stampin' Up! catalogue to inspire our own projects each week. We also invite you to join with us in the challenge each week by using this inspiration in your own creations and uploading a photo to our Facebook page.
This week the challenge is to take inspiration from the Annual Catalogue, and re-create it using Holiday Catalogue products. If you don't have products yet from the Holiday Catalogue you have to check it out as there are so many beautiful ones that will make your projects pop!
As soon as I saw those hot air balloons I knew my new Christmas Gleaming Bundle from page 31 of the Holiday Catalogue would be perfect. I totally love this bundle, in fact all of the products on page 31! I initially thought that I wouldn't use another ornament punch but the intricate patterns and the two different sizes in this bundle are just amazing and my favourite thing from the whole catalogue. As you can see I have used a few of the products from the Brightly Gleaming Suite, including the Brightly Gleaming DSP for background and banner, as well as the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder on the main panel, which you can see much better in the next picture.
Keeping with the colour scheme of the DSP I used Pretty Peacock, Night of Navy and Mossy Meadow Blends to colour the ornaments. The tops I coloured with Dark Crumb Cake and then used a blender pen to add just a little bit of sparkle by dipping it into Champagne Shimmer Paint, which of course doesn't show up well in photographs!
