Welcome to another week of CASEing the Catty. I had a lovely day yesterday catching up with some people at a card workshop run by Maple & Oak. Sometimes it is nice to just have some time out to chat and create with others who enjoy doing the same thing. I am a lot less rushed today and have this blog written with plenty of time to spare. The kids go back to school tomorrow! Woo hoo! This week we are creating a project using the colours from the Heart & Home DSP. These are Pale Papaya, Garden Green, Misty Moonlight, Fresh Freesia, Cinnamon Cider & Basic Gray.
I think these colours are well suited to floral cards, but as you know I’m not really a floral person so I looked through my box of new goodies that are still sitting here untouched to see what might work best with these colours. I decided on the Kite Delight stamp set (which may not be everyone’s first choice of stamp set from the new Mini catalogue, but I tend to get some that aren’t the most popular ones) and ended up deciding to use Fresh Freesia, Misty Moonlight, Pale Papaya and Basic Gray in my card. Here is what I came up with …
I started with a Misty Moonlight card base, added a layer of Fresh Freesia so there was a small strip either side of the central white panel. I stamped the kite & sentiment in Fresh Freesia, the kite tail in Misty Moonlight (stamped off), the sun in Pale Papaya & the clouds in Basic Gray. I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the clouds, kite & sun but you can’t really see it in the photo. I decided to keep the card simple. #simplestamping.
Next up is Peta with her creation using these colours. Keep hopping around to see everyone’s creations.
What will you come up with using these colours? Will you make a floral creation or will you make something a bit different? Either way, we’d love to see it. Just add a photo of your creation to our Facebook page.
Until next time, happy stamping
