Welcome to another week of CASEing the Catty and tonight I am celebrating as I am finally allowed to leave my house after 14 days of quarantine after returning from Sydney where I visited my mum and family. You don’t realise how many things you take for granted, like just being able to jump in your car and head to the shops to buy a loaf of bread when you are running low. (And just to get 5mins peace to yourself seeing as you’ve been stuck in the house with two young kids while trying to both work from home, get kids to do school work and everything else they need which never seems to end!).
This week we are CASEing a Sketch from page 72 of the Annual Catalogue. Whether you have hopped on over from Rebecca’s interpretation of his sketch or are starting here, make sure you keep hopping around to get lots of ideas and interpretations of this sketch.
So I kept all of the elements in the sketch, however I did need to move the sentiment up a little so that it wasn’t covering my image.
I started with an Early Espresso card base and then added a mat of DSP from the In Good Taste DSP pack. I love all of the textures in this pack. I stamped the images onto Shimmery White Cardstock and then coloured them with Bumblebee and Smoky Slate inks and Blender Pen before fussy cutting them out and adhering them to a Stitched Rectangle of Shimmery White cardstock.
The sentiment was stamped onto Crumb Cake cardstock in Soft Suede ink and then cut out using one of the dies from the Hippo & Friends Dies. I added a piece of Linen Thread and my card was done.
Next up is Rachel with her take on the sketch. I love how everyone takes different ideas from the one sketch. Keep hopping around to see all of the design team’s interpretation of the sketch.
What will you make using this sketch? You can use any stamp set, DSP, embellishments etc that you like. We’d love to see what you come up with so make sure you add a photo of your project to our Facebook page by clicking the image below. Will your creation be chosen as this week’s Crew Pick?
Until next time, happy stamping
