Hello and welcome back to the CASE-ing The Catty Blog Hop. We are lucky enough to have three new members of the Crew start here this week. You may have already seen their posts, as I am following Deb Speijers, and she follows Krissy Buck, who follows Kelly Kent. Welcome ladies, it's great to have you on board. This week we are CASE-ing from pages 66 to 91, a very large chunk called Everyday Occasions. There are many gorgeous stamps through this section, and that means lots of samples to CASE.I've settled on Pop Of Paradise, and I'm sure the rest of the crew will have lots more to inspire you.
I'm crazy about this Pop Of Paradise stamp set now, after not being all that impressed with it initially at Onstage. It is possibly just the sweet, summery feeling it gives off, who knows. I CASE-d the thank you card on the far left in the picture, almost exactly. I stamped the three pineapples, raising the centre one on a Dimensional, after fussy cutting it. However, I've substituted Painters Palette DSP for the Pop of Pink DSP, and Blushing Bride Glitter paper edges the stamped panel. It's the Blushing Bride Glimmer paper which has given the 'cloudy' look to the photo, I've had several attempts to improve it, but this is as good as it gets!
Have you tried the copper embossing powder
yet? It is a gorgeous shade, rather like rose gold, and I've used it with Blushing Bride for flowers, and it also looks great with copper pineapples. Again, this card is the result of playing with new products and mixing Emerald Envy and Mint Macaroon together, along with Affectionately Yours Washi tape, and some Timeless Textures splatters.
Hope I've helped get your creative juices going and now you are heading off to Jackie Noble over in New Zealand
