CASEing the Catty Challenge CTC472 – Take to the Sky Suite

Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge, Header

Welcome to the Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge Blog Hop CTC472. Today’s challenge is to CASE a project from the Take to the Sky Suite in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. This suite was the first one I purchased from this catalogue. I loved that it was a masculine themed suite and i really liked the DSP which had some tags and individual images which could be used on projects.

Today, I’ve CASED a technique which is demonstrated on Page 36 of the catalogue with the repeated die cuts used to create an interesting background.

I used the Heartfelt Hexagon punch to create the background, punching out several shapes from Basic White Cardstock, Then I embossed them with the Layered Florals 3D Embossing Folder. These were adhered to a Basic White matte layer.


To replicate the centre DSP panel in the original card, I added another embossed punched hegaxon on top. I coloured the background of this shape with the Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend. Then I coloured the flowers with Lemon Lime Twist and Peach Pie Stampin’ Blends adding some lighter shading with Granny Apple Green and Calypso Coral Watercolor Pencils.

Instead of having this as an inlaid panel, I mounted this on top of the shape underneath, adding Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it more depth.

The cake from the Attention Shoppers bundle was coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I felt this image looked a bit lost on it’s own so I added some flowers and leaves around it. The floweres were die cut from the Unbounded Beauty Designer Series Paper while the die cut leaves were lightly watercoloured in Lemon Lime Twist for an organic look.

A bow, coloured with the Dark Peach Pie Stampin’ Blend, brings my little cluster of elements together.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog. Next on our hop is my friend Rochelle Blok who will have some beautiful inspiration for you.
