CASE-ing the Catty - CASE a Bundle
June 04, 2023
Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty this week.
If you've come from visiting Peta & Marvi, then welcome! If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today! You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the CTC Crew by clicking on the button at the bottom of the post.
This week we are taking inspiration from the Bundles listed on pages 155-160 of the new 2023-24 Annual Catalogue. I always make a point of looking at the Bundles pages as you get another sample project and a better look at the coordinating dies and it can be easy to miss things in the body of the catalogue. There are some great new bundles in this year's catalogue, but if you don't have them yet, no problems; CASE-ing is about taking inspiration from the colours, layout, technique or type of product used in a project. It's about what inspires you to create your own project.
I love the eyelet border die in the Darling Details Dies that allows you to thread ribbon (or card stock) for the broderie anglaise look, which seems to be making a bit of a comeback in clothes as well. Plus, the two lovely frame dies in the same style, which can be used as is, or cut into pieces for borders or trims under sentiments etc. There are also 22 stamps in the coordinating Darling Details stamp set, so lots of possibilies .
I started with the Bubble Bath card base and cut the border separately from Bubble Bath cardstock. I threaded two rows of the Sweet Sorbet 1/8" Metallic Woven Ribbon through the ribbon slot. This ribbon is much closer in colour to Berry Burst, so it works well with Bubble Bath. At the top I added a piece of the Bubble Bath designer paper from the Bright & Beautiful 6" x 6" DSP pack.
I stamped the flowers in Fresh Freesia and Berry Burst ink and added the detail layer with Versamark ink and heat set with white embossing powder. Although not apparent in the photo, it adds another layer of texture to the card. The stamped foliage is in Granny Apple Green and Garden Green and the detailed die cut foliage in Garden Green. Once all the pieces were stamped and die cut it was a matter of layering them as desired. The large Berry Burst flower is popped up on Dimensionals. I wasn't happy with my original plan for the sentiment and decided to stamp the birthday greeting directly onto the background paper and then added the fussy cut 'friend' at the bottom right. I finished with 3 Daffodil Delight Glossy Dots as a contrast to the pink.
