Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop . Challenge, where we take our inspiration from a section of one of the current Stampin' Up! Catalogues.
This week we are being inspired by the Sweet Soiree section of the Occasions Catalogue, pages 10 - 14. This section has such a pretty suite of products, with flowers and cakes and lots of sparkle and silver!
I took my inspiration from the image on page 10 of the catalogue, the right hand card in the photo above. I really liked the layout of this card, although I made quite a few changes with the colours and images I used.
I was itching to use my new Petal Palette stamp set and this was the perfect opportunity. If you visit my blog regularly you will know that I often go through phases, I think I am in my Razzleberry Phase at the moment as I have been drawn time and again to this beautiful colour. I started by stamping my images in Rich Razzleberry before colouring with Stampin' Blends, for the flowers in Rich Razzleberry and Pink Pirouette and Old Olive for the leaves. I think stamping in a non-black ink gives the overall finish a softer look.
There are lots of little details on this card that I missed on my initial glance at it, one of these was that there was a stitched circle layer behind the other images, and one of the others was the little strip of DSP along the right side of the main panel. I made mine by cutting a thin piece from the Painted with Love Specialty DSP, choosing a segment with Rich Razzleberry and gold.
The sentiment is from the lovely set from the Lots of Happy Card Kit stamped and embossed in Gold on a 1" strip of vellum. I made a second banner in Basic Black to layer behind the vellum and attached the two together with a staple in the left side. I coloured the staple with the dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends so that it was more gold than silver to coordinate with the rest of the card.
I used the remainder of the strip to decorate the inside of the card.
