Hello again, so glad you've dropped by to check out what's happening at CASE-ing The Catty. This week the assignment is to CASE Going Global, pages 38-39. It was exciting to see this great suite of products introduced to us by Stampin' Up!®, but unfortunately this masculine set is NOT carrying over into the Annual Catty. If you have men to make cards for, it might be a good idea to take one last look at pages 38-39 to see if you need the stamp set, paper stack or embossing folder.
I decided to share some of the NEW papers coming in the Annual Catalogue (1st June is the big day), but use the Going Global stamps. The design is based on the Black card on the left, above. The paper I've used is from a Designer Series Paper Stack, 6 inches square, called Playful Palette. It co-ordinates with four of the New InColors, and goes really well with a stamp set called Painter's Palette. I've been having so much fun with these unusual colours & patterns, I've nearly used half the pack already!!
My friend Kathryn Mangelsdorf was one of the designers who used Painter's Palette for display items at Stampin' Up!® Sydney Onstage last month, and she inspired me so much, I ordered the stamp set straight away. Her name will link you to the blog where Kathryn shares her projects. No doubt you'll meet her as you proceed around this blog hop too. For my Going Global card, I cased a very similar one on page 38, and changed the paper, the ink colour is the NEW Emerald Envy. Instead of ribbon, I used a silver foil banner.
Not content with that, I busted open another 12" X 12" pack of DSP, this one is Affectionately Yours, and it is bright and fresh, in new InColors plus some of last years like Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush. I took two sheets, and cut 2 pieces 5 inches by 3½ inches from each, flipped one and used coordinating card for the sentiment strip, and behind the DSP. There's the two colours I mentioned earlier, and NEW Flirty Flamingo, plus So Saffron for the last one. That piece had so many possible accents, so I just chose something that matched the other shades. I've embossed a piece of Crumb Cake with one of a pair of folders which is part of that range also. I love this folder because there is space for stamping of a banner between the two sprays of flowers. The other embossing folder is very cute too, a couple of flowers and leaves, and the embossing is not at all subtle.
