Welcome to another CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge blog hop. This week we are casing the July – December 2022 Mini Catalogue which went live on 1st July 2022. I was hoping to have some of my new goodies from pre-order to share with you for this challenge but Australia Post had other thoughts on that and decided to send my box of goodies on a little holiday to regional SA instead. Hopefully next week I’ll have some new goodies to play with and share with you.
As I flipped through the catalogue I came across the window card on page 54 which you can see in the top left of the image below. I loved the texture of the embossing folder with the focal image front & centre so decided to case this card using the products I had. One of the mums (and their family) from school are moving interstate at the end of next week so I decided to make this card for her.
I started with a Polished Pink card base and added a mat of Polished Pink that I’d run through the Bricks & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. Before adhering it to the card base, I used some White Craft ink and a sponge to put a little of this over the top to make some of the bricks stand out a little more. Hopefully you can see that in the photo.
I then used the Oceanfront stamp set to create the scene on Basic White cardstock and framed it using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I had trouble finding a suitable sentiment in my current stamp sets so I used this one from the recently retired (only 3 days ago) On The Horizon stamp set. This was heat embossed with White Embossing Powder onto Melon Mambo cardstock to stand out a little against the Polished Pink background.
Next up is Peta & Marvi with their creation for this week. I can’t wait to see what everyone has made this week as I think we’ll get to see quite a few new products, which is always exciting. Make sure you keep hopping around.
Even if you don’t have any of the products from the new catalogue (like I didn’t), it doesn’t mean you can’t join in this week’s challenge. Use a layout, technique, colour combo etc from a project within the new mini catalogue and don’t forget to share your project on our Facebook page.
Until next time, happy stamping
Wow, your version of this card is fantastic! The ocean scene was such a great choice for a view from the window. I hope that your BBB turns up soon!
