CASE-ing the Catty - Favourite Retiring Stamp Set
April 11, 2021
Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty!
If you've come from visiting Lauren, 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 taking inspiration from our favourite retiring stamp set.
Page 52 of the 202-21 Annual Catalogue has projects using two of my favourite stamp sets. As I love colouring, the line images in the So Much Love stamp set are fabulous for lots of different methods of colouring.
In addition to farewelling this lovely stamp set, I have a little sneak peek for you. I received some of my new 2021-23 In Color products on Friday, so I decided to use Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends to colour the image. I don't think my photo does justice to the clear, vibrant pink that is Polished Pink.
I used a Soft Succulent card base and added a layer of Basic White that was dry embossed with the Tasteful Texture 3D Embossing Folder. Next is a layer of Sahara Sand paper with the text design that was cropped with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.
I've used the scalloped label from the new Scalloped Contours Dies cut from Sahara Sand and I stamped the dots image from the So Much Love stamp set over it. The greeting from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set was stamped in black and cropped with the smallest Stitched Rectangle Die. The coloured and fussy cut flower was popped up over the background elements, with a small bow in the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon to add softness. I finished with a single rhinestone, coloured with the Dark Polished Pink Blends marker.
For the inside, I have a very narrow border of Sahara Sand and I've stamped and coloured a partial image of the smaller flower in the bottom corner.
