It is Thursday and time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. This month it is CASE the Catalog for inspiration. Every week a new sample is chosen from the 2022-23 Annual Catalog as the inspiration. You can be inspired by the layout, colors, stamp set or a combination of the items. This week the inspiration sample can be seen on page 39 of the catalog.
How will you be inspired? I was inspired by the layout. Instead of strips of Designer Series Paper I chose to stamp a background.
I used a stamp from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set. I stamped the image in Blushing Bride, Pool Party, and So Saffron. The flowers are from the Cottage Rose stamp set and cut out using the Cottage Rose dies (together they are the Cottage Rose bundle ). The Cottage Rose flowers were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and highlighted using a So Saffron Stampin' Blend (Light). The Pear Pizzazz leaves were cut using the Cottage Flowers dies.
The sentiment is from the Sending Smiles stamp set and heat embossed using white embossing powder. The Sending dies were used to cut the sentiment out. When you purchase both the stamp set and the dies together as a bundle, you save 10%. This bundle is one I use often. The flowers are beautiful and there are so many sentiments perfect for so many different situations.
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created,
