Welcome to another Sunday evening and another CASEing the Catty Challenge. First of all I want to wish all the mothers and mother figures out there a very happy Mother’s Day. I hope you were able to share a lovely day with family. And for those of you who no longer have your mother here with you, I send you lots of love and hope you can take some comfort in the wonderful memories that you shared.
This week we are CASEing the brand new 2022 – 2023 Annual Catalogue which went live on Tuesday. That means that you can now order any of the wonderful goodies in this catalogue. With so many wonderful projects in the catalogue to choose from, it took a while to pick which one I was going to case. I only have a few products from the new catalogue, so I ended up deciding to case the card on the far right of the image below which is on page 93 using the Botanical Layers stamp set. When I first saw this stamp set in the catalogue, I loved how you could layer the different stamps to create a lovely background.
I started with a Basic White card base and then started layering the various images from the Botanical Layers stamp set around the edges using Night of Navy, Evening Evergreen and Shaded Spruce. I then got my Blending Brush and some Soft Succulent ink to add some ink to the background so that it wasn’t white, ensuring I added more and less ink in different sections to give it some depth.
The sentiment comes from the Good Feelings stamp set which can be found on page 18 of the new catty. This was stamped in Shaded Spruce ink onto Soft Succulent cardstock and then cut out using the largest hexagon die from the Beautiful Shapes Dies. I raised the sentiment on Dimensionals™ and added some sprigs underneath from the Sunflower Dies in Shaded Spruce, Soft Succulent & Evening Evergreen.
Next up on this week’s hop is my fellow Adelaide Hills demo Kathryn with her favourite from the new Annual Catty.
We’d love for you to join in this week’s challenge. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have any of the new products yet, just case a project using whatever products you have. Don’t forget to add a photo to our Facebook page of your finished project.
Until next time, happy stamping
