Hello from the Magenta Tiger,
This week the ‘CASEing the Catty’ Crew are showcasing Christmas inspiration featured in the New Stampin’ Up! ® Annual Catalogue (pages 26-37) – CASEing The Catty 82. My entry this week for the monthy challenge is inspired by the gorgeous Christmas Wreath Card on page 32 (without the Christmas theme).
My card base is a piece of Shimmer White Cardstock (11.5cm x 22cm ) folded in half. I’ve embossed a piece of Crumb Cake (10.5 cm x 10.5cm) with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder then dabbed a little Crumb Cake ink over the card stock with a Sponge Dauber.
I’ve stamped the wreath from the Circle of Spring Stamp Set in Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Ink onto Shimmer White Cardstock. Shimmer White Cardstock or Watercolour Paper are the best surfaces for Watercoloring. I’ve watercolored the flowers in Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty flamingo and Peekaboo Peach with my Aqua Painter. and the leaves in Mint Macaron. The Wreath has been cut out in the Big Shot using the Wreath dies from the Wonderous Wreath Framelits. This framelit created the Christmas Wreath on page 32. The Peekaboo Peach bow was stamped and then cut out using this same Fraemlits set.
The Crumb Cake banner was created using the Banners Framelits. My ‘Thank-you’ sentiment is from the Circle of Spring stamp set and has been stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink. I’ve added a Gold Metallic Enamel Circle and some 1/4″ Gold Natural Trim for a little sparkle.
Thanks for stopping by, Love Fiona xxx
