CASEing the Catty is a weekly* challenge that is hosted on Facebook. It’s a great challenge to join if you don’t have your own blog, you just post your photo to the group as your entry. If you like visiting blogs, never fear, the design team has a blog hop to showcase the crew’s creations.
(* I thought it was a fortnightly challenge so I’m too late with my entry – definitely living up to my blog’s name! But I decided to share the cards I made anyway)
I follow the blog of one the crew, Siobhan Fitsimmons – Hightrees House of Cards and when I saw her post the latest CASEing the Catty challenge I knew I had to join in. I love these cards featured in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. (I was surprised to read though that Siobhan was not a fan of these colours!)
I decided to get out the retired Follow Your Dreams stamp set and Chase Your Dreams dies to make my card for this challenge. The first card ended up with only the sentiment being stamped so I made another card while I had the inks handy.
My first card features feathers cut in each of the colours – Blushing Bride, Gray Granite, Mint Macaron, Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam. They were mounted using Dimensionals on a Whisper White stitched rectangle and layered on Gray Granite, which was embossed with the Bricks and Mortar 3D folder. The sentiment was stamped in Gray Granite.
The feather were embossed with the Subtle 3D folder and brushed with Wink of Stella for some sparkle. And a few rhinestones to finish off.
My second card features a dream catcher stamped in Gray Granite over the other challenge colours. This image is from Ecelectic Expressions, a well loved Sale-A-Bration stamp set. The sentiment was also stamped in Gray Granite, and cut with one of the Tasteful Labels dies.
The Soft Sea Foam layer was embossed with the Subtle 3D folder, and the Blushing Bride panel was embossed with one of the Wrapped in Texture folders. Finished with a few pearls to add some shine.
Do you like to work with one stamp set or bundle at a time? Or mix and match across a few different sets?
Are colour challenges a good source of inspiration for you?
