2018-2020 In Colours

ARE YOU IN?

The next stop on our colour caravan is the 2018-2020 In Colours!  Call me Clover, Grapefruit Grove, Blueberry Bushel, Pineapple Punch and Lovely Lipstick, these colours are bouquet of hues that lend well to any project.



With so many new colours in the collections, it might be a little overwhelming to become familiar with each one.  Making a small swatch of the cardstock colours is a great way to make a quick guide to all the colours.

CASEing the Catty Animal Outing - #CTC183



This week at CASEing the Catty we are featuring the Animal Expedition Section from page 26 to 37.

You maybe starting here so welcome or you could have come from Angela Meiritz-Reid.

It's Sunday night and I have only 30 minutes ago said goodbye to my Card Class ladies, who  enjoy using lots of new products from the Annual Catalogue, and I could not go passed the cute animals from the Animal Outing stamp sets.

I decided to use the card to the left for my inspiration but stamped the kangaroo and koala as my centrepoint in Early Espresso and then used the watercolour pencils and my Aqua Painter to colour them.  I masked the kangaroo and then added the grasses in Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green and layered it onto a circle of Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight Double-Stitched Ribbon.

Stamp Set:  Animal Outing, Healing Hugs
Cardstock:  Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz

CASEing the Catty Graceful Garden - #CTC182



It's the Queen's Birthday long weekend here in Adelaide and I have a couple of free hours last evening to create, this week at CASEing the Catty we are featuring pages 13 to 25 in the Annual Catalogue.

You maybe starting here so welcome or you could have come from Angela Meiritz-Reid.

Whilst looking through the pages, the card using the Graceful Garden stamp set stood out, so I pulled out this stamp set that I have had since the last catalogue but it had not seen ink until last night.

I have cased the card with the same colours and really enjoyed using clear embossing powder on the watercolour paper and then water washed with the Aqua Painter and Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist ink.

To create the roses, I again water washed the Melon Mambo lightly and then when the paper was still a little damp stamped the image in Melon Mambo which then bleed a little which created a lovely wash look.  I then repeated this with Berry Burst.  I created the leaves with the same technique with the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist and Garden Green.

Stamp Set:  Graceful Garden
Cardstock:  Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White, Watercolour
Ink:  Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo, Berry Burst, Garden Green, VersaMark
Accessories:  Heat Tool, Clear Embossing Powder, White Embossing Powder, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Flourish Thinlits, Aqua Painter, Silver Foil Metallic Enamel Shapes (retired)
