CASE-ing the Catty - Graceful Glass


Hi there

This is our last week (for now) in the Annual Catalogue, as we will be starting to look at the fabulous new Holiday Catalogue from next week. This week however, we are taking inspiration from the Graceful Glass section of the Annual Catalogue on pages 164-179.

If you've come from Sandra's blog, 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 buttons at the bottom of the post. 

I have been busy for the last few days prepping and running a class, so I left it to today to make my card. I had selected the card above for my inspiration, but it led me on a merry dance. I do not have the Bouquet Blooms Bundle used in this sample, but had in mind exactly what I would replace it with. Well, I got there eventually and I'm reasonably happy with the final product. Unfortunately I ran out of natural light as the afternoon became very gloomy in Melbourne.  We've had our allocation of sunshine for now, it seems. So here it is:

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Bouquet - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

The base card is my favourite Balmy Blue and I've stamped the leaf from the 'Share What You Love' stamp set on 2 sides in Balmy Blue ink. For the art panel I have used thick Whisper White and embossed it with the 'Subtle' embossing folder to add interest and texture.  I added the cute scallop trim from the Bouncing Baby Framelits to the edge.  Next came the die cut wreath in Crumb Cake, using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.


I've used the 'Beautiful Bouquet' stamp set and coordinating Bouquet Bunch Framelits to stamp and die cut my cluster of flowers and leaves and arranged them on the right side of the wreath, popping them up at different heights.  I cut a few strips of whisper white and using the Stamparatus, stamped a set of flowers in each colour, so I could play around with the placement. The greeting from 'Varied Vases' stamp set was popped under the flowers. I added some tiny rhinestones to the little blue flowers and popped the silver and white twine bow underneath one. 


For the inside I have a double mat, with a strip of Crumb Cake striped designer paper at the bottom. I've added a little cluster of flowers in the corner, from the leftover bits and pieces.
