CASE-ing the Catty - So Much Love

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty challenge! 

If you've come from visiting Peta, 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. 


This week we are CASE-ing the projects on page 1 of the 2020-21 Annual Catalogue. 


The So Much Love stamp set arrived in the post this week, so I decided on the Misty Moonlight project in the centre of the photo. I've cropped out the image so you can see it more clearly.

I'm pretty time poor at the moment, as I'm working on another project, so I burnt a little midnight oil to make this card. I've been working with Purple Posy and had the colours on my desk, so I decided to go with it once I selected the soft striped design from the Playing with Patterns paper pack and covered the front of a Whisper White card base.  I like the layout, so I've kept pretty close to it.

I've used Light and Dark Purple Posy to colour the large flower from So Much Love with some Light Highland Heather for the highlights. To keep it soft, I used Soft Sea Foam for the leaves. I left the fussy cutting to the morning light as I didn't want to chop through those very fine stems. I found the large foliage spray from the Birds & More Dies in my 'bits and bobs' tray and snipped it into pieces and positioned it around the flower.  The 'happy' letters are  layered onto a 1 inch strip of Whisper White and I used the Banners Pick a Punch to shape the end. I found a piece of Highland Heather embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder in my scraps and die cut the letters using the Playful Alphabet Dies. I added the 'birthday' from the Well Written Dies under the banner and finished with some Purple Posy sequins I picked out of the Woven Threads Sequin Assortment.

For the inside, I have a Purple Posy mat for the writing panel. I stamped the second of the floral images from the So Much Love stamp set in the corner and coloured with the same Stampin' Blends. I finished the stamens with my White Gel Pen.

Absolutely stunning!! LOOOOOVE your colouring. Gorgeous card. Brilliant fussy cutting.

Michelle Strazds

Lovely colour palette and that DSP is perfect. It adds interest to the background but lets the flower and sentiment shine.
