Another Friday, another CASE-ing The Catty and this week we are CASE-ing the kids section, pages 39-48. You may have started here with me, in which case you have a delightful lot of hopping to do as you check out all the design team blogs, or if you came here from Stasia's blog, you won't have quite as far to go.
At convention we received the stamp set I Think You're Great and we made three different Make And Takes over the 3 days. One of them used the floral-like stamp which we inked, and then daubed with a darker shade in the centre. I decided to make a row of images using this technique and style it like the chosen design. Mint Macaron is the main colour, and Lost Lagoon was daubed into the centre. Those two shades really go nicely together, and a tiny accent of Hello Honey gives a bit of a 'lift'. I'm sure Watermelon Wonder would look great too. The sentiment is from the retired Itty Bitty Banners, cut with Bitty Banners Framelits (they're still in the catalogue). There was a scrap of white Jute Ribbon on my table which I thought added interest, even though you can hardly notice it, along with some white Bakers Twine.
I've had more free time while school has taken a two week winter break, and I couldn't stop myself from creating another version of this card using Guy Greetings. I bought this stamp set mainly for the sentiments and the tool image. However, after a recent outing with a family member, it became very apparent that he has a 'thing' for hats. We had just exited Flinders Street Station, the main rail station for Melbourne. It is quite historic, and has some rather traditional shops beneath street level. One of these is a men's hatter and a comment was made about the nice hats but how expensive they are. I might have to sneak back to check it out sometime!
From The Herd was another of those stamp sets with very handy sentiments, in particular it's a really nice 'Happy Birthday' sentiment. The font is almost the same as Guy Greetings so they paired up here, beautifully! Even with the close-up I've taken, you can't see that I fussy cut three hats, sponged the edges and raised them on half Dimensionals. I'm using sponge daubers so much lately, might have to pop some more on the next order!
If you are thinking of ordering in my online shop, the Hostess Code for this month is 6J7FYB24.
It's time for you to pop over to check out Tricia on the blog hop. Are you looking forward to a creative weekend?
