Casing the Catalogue

December 28, 2014

Today I am going to share with you a set of cards I made using the gorgeous stamp set Lotus Blossom from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

020I cased this set of cards from the catalogue just to showcase how gorgeous this stamp looks in many different colours.  There is a three step stamping process to create the blossom and you start with the darkest image (which is the smallest image) first and work towards the lightest (which is actually the largest image).  I stamped my flowers using the following colour combinations – Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise and Soft Sky, Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloup and Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum.  The stems are stamped using Old Olive and Pear Pizzaz.  You stamp the first stamp with the darkest colour, the second stamp with the lightest colour.  You use the lightest colour for the third stamp but stamp onto scrap paper first.

021I stamped the flowers onto Whisper White card and then added the greeting from the Wetlands stamp set using, Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise, Calypso Coral and Elegant Eggplant.  The images are attached to card in the same colours.  The Gold stripe Fancy Foil Designer Vellum is attached to scored and folded Whisper White card.  Before attaching the image panel to the card front, I wrapped two of them with the Gold Baker’s Twine and tied a knot.  The other two image panels are wrapped with the Gold Sequin Trim.

022Inside the cards I stamped the flower using the same colours as the card front.  I attached a narrow piece of Gold stripe Fancy Foil Designer Vellum to Whisper White card and then a co-ordinating piece of card which has one long edge punched using the Scallop Edge Border Punch.

023Don’t they look gorgeous?  I bet you can’t wait to get your hands on this beautiful stamp set!  Well beginning 5th January, this stamp set will be FREE with a qualifying order.  If you don’t have a demonstrator, then contact me to find out the details.

Bye for now,

Kris
