It's that time of the week again when the CASE-ing the Catty Crew bring you inspiration from the Stampin' Up! catalogues. This week we are giving you a sneak peak of products from the 2015-16 Annual Catalogue that will become available on 2 June 2015. One of the perks of being a Demonstrator is to get early access to new products!
I find there are some stamp sets that jump off the page at you and 'You've Got This' did it for me. It has a fabulous sketchy background stamp that will be great combined with other sets and the flower image is wonderful to colour in whatever is your favourite style.
I've taken inspiration directly from the catalogue by stamping the sketchy background all over a piece of Whisper White card stock in my favourite Soft Sky ink. The flower stamp was heat embossed in Early Espresso onto Shimmery White card stock and then water coloured with an Aquapainter and ink pads in Calypso Coral. This works so well and I prefer the look to watercolour paper when fussy cutting the image . I also love the subtle shimmer that still shows through. At the bottom is a strip of the new Tip Top Taupe Dotted Lace Trim topped with Calypso Coral seam binding ribbon and white Baker's Twine. I attached this panel to a base card of Soft Sky.
This is the inside of the card, with the flower image partially stamped in the corner with Tip Top Taupe ink. This colour is my new favourite neutral and it coordinates beautifully with all of the Subtles Colour Collection.
There are lots of other ways to use this beautiful stamp set and I will be back to show you more soon.
