CTC #260 - Lovely Lilies

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, where utilise 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 we are taking our inspiration from the projects in the new 2020 Mini Catalogue, just pick any of the amazing projects to inspire your own creation then post a picture of it on the CTC Facebook Page.

I was inspired by this image from page 24 of the catalogue, I have been trying to use my DSP more often rather than hoarding it and I think this is why this card stood out to me. I also like that the sentiment is present but that the flower is more of a feature on the card.

For my project I decided to use the Lily Suite of products from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue rather than the Peaceful Poppies Suite used in the original.  I love that in the SAB you can earn framelits, stamp set, and DSP that all coordinate perfectly together.  I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and embossed with White Embossing Powder to make the sentiment pop. The paper piecing on the die cut lily was a little fidley but I love how the Lovely Lipstick and Melon Mambo go together and create the background to the lily stamped in the same colours.

This is a very special stamp set as the photo-polymer stamps are reversible, meaning you can stamp the lined image in one colour, then clean and turn the stamp over to add a solid colour of a similar shape.  The images are not designed to line up perfectly but work really well with the impressionistic patterns on the DSP. 

I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week, just use the samples in the new Mini Catalogue to inspire your creativity, then post a picture of your project to the CTC Facebook page.

Time to hop on over and see what Rachel has created this week.

Happy Stamping
