CTC #227 - Retiring Bundle

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, where we take a look at one of the sections of a current Stampin' Up! catalogue and use the projects within it to inspire our own creations.

This week we are taking our inspiration from projects in the catalogue made with the retiring bundles.

I was inspired by this image from page 10 of the Occasions Catalogue, featuring products from the Floral Romance Suite. I am sure it is no surprise to those of you who have visited my blog recently that I am going to really miss this suite of products!

As usual when I keep to a fairly similar layout to the original card I do like to switch up the colours just a bit. Although I was tempted to use more of the gorgeous Floral Romance DSP, I decided to switch it up and use three of the patterns from the All My Love DSP also from the Occasions Catalogue which will be retiring soon.  To keep me from getting too sad about all the retiring DSP I added sentiments, both printed and die cut, from the Well Said Bundle which will be carrying over into the annual catalogue, though not as a bundle. For the Happy, I used a sponge dauber to add colour to the top half to give an ombre look which also helped it stand out against the two different DSPs I used. Instead of die cut leaves I added a fussy cut flower and leaves cut from the same DSP to add to the sentiment. 

I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week, just use the samples from any of the retiring bundles from either 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 Rebecca has created this week.
