Hello and Happy Friday! This week over on the Sisters in Stamping blog I asked my fellow designers to find a card in the Annual Catalog to CASE. I really loved the card on page 41 that is on the right (see below) and decided to use the Beautiful You and Beautiful Promenade stamp sets along with the Stitched Nested Labels die collection.
I just really love the simplicity of this card layout and wanted to give it a try with stamps instead of DSP (although it is gorgeous in the sample on page 41).
I used stampin' dimensionals to pop up the top card stock layer and you can see it better at this angle. I stamped the large roses image and leaves in both corners using Seaside Spray ink on the card stock - I really like the tone-on-tone effect. I left the focal image inside the frame super simple, just stamping the detail image with black ink and using the scribble image to "color" the dress with Blushing Bride ink.
Here is a close-up of the cut flowers and sentiment. I used Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz and Seaside Spray ink for the flowers that I cut out and attached below the sentiment. The sentiment is from the Beautiful You stamp set and is stamped with black ink (I really love my Memento Tuxedo Black pad). I added a little bow tied with linen thread for a little added texture (earn a pack for FREE with your qualifying $50+ order placed via my online Stampin' Up! store using Host Code JZHZZWE3 through July 30th).
Here is another look at my card. For even more fabulous Catalog CASE card ideas and inspiration from the Annual catalog please hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to see what my fellow designers created last week.
