#Throwback Thursday...


This feature is designed to help you use your Stampin' Up! catalogue to its full potential. Along with showing you all the lovely products available to buy, the catalogue is filled with great ideas showcasing the stamps along with new techniques and colour combinations. In an effort to give you more inspiration on altering projects to fit the products you already own and to show you just how versatile your stamps really are, CASE the Catalogue is here...

If you are interested in what CASE the Catalogue is all about or if you are wondering what a CASE even is, please check out my previous post here.

Today I am showing you a CASE from a catalogue which you might not actually have... It's the Spring summer catalogue which was available between January and May. While you may no longer be able to purchase from this catalogue I always advise my customers to keep hold of past catalogues, because they can still provide serious inspiration! The 2016 Spring/Summer catalogue was no exception and there were so many great ideas that I didn't actually get a chance to try them all! Luckily a load of the stamp sets are still available so I can still try them now.

Today's CASE comes from page 13 of the catalogue and uses the very popular and amazingly versatile stamp set "Balloon Celebration". I say versatile because this project didn't use the stamp set in a way you might expect. No balloons at all...

Now I have to admit I am a bit of a sucker for dandelions, when I was small I used to love blowing them into the sky and making wishes! I really wanted to stay close to this project for my CASE today and decided to keep the dandelion and watercolour paper but change the colours a little.

I thought I would go a little stormy with the colours. I used a combination of blue shades with a aqua painter to make the background and finished it off with some white craft ink and a dauber to give it a bokeh effect.

I used Versamark and White embossing powder to make the dandelion. I will admit this is a bit of a fiddle as its hard to see where you have stamped with the Versamark to line up the next dandelion stem, but I think the overall effect is lovely and worth the effort. I actually think the imperfection makes it better!

I found the perfect sentiment for the card in the "Weather Together" stamp set. I didn't want the sentiment to take away from the design and felt that this really finished the card off. I really love this sentiment and am so glad I found a card to use it on.

If you like the above card and would like to make it or something similar yourself at home with a group of friends for free, then please read my party page here and check out my Facebook page for a great offer and competition which is running for the whole of September and October!
