CASEing the Catty #131

Hello everyone!

Just a short post today to share a card I am entering into the CASEing the Catty Challenge #131, it's a facebook challenge group so you don't even need to blog to take part! Each week the challenge is to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit)  the amazing inspiration we have right at our fingertips in the big, beautiful and shiny brand new, Stampin' Up Annual Catalogue that has just come out June 1st (my copy not so shiny anymore as it has been read & re-read SO many times!).

This week we had to use the Everyday Occasions section, pages 18-67, that's a lot of inspiration! What caught my eye was the cute-as Piggy card on page 48.

 I loved the look of the background and had to give it a go. Here is my take on it!

I am really pleased with how this turned out. Instead of the hearts I have used stitched shape squares, if you haven't already got the Stitched Shape Framelits, you need to get them. They would be my most used product, it's amazing how much difference a little stitched outline can make to your finished project.

My project uses one of the new In Colours, Lemon Lime Twist, it's one of my favourite colours now as it makes everything pop when it is used. My photography skills haven't shown it in the best light here so you will just have to take my word for it. As for my colour combo I have used Perfect Plum, Smoky Slate & Whisper White along with the Lemon Lime Twist. Did I dream up this combo? Nope, Stampin' Up did all the hard work for me. When new In Colours are brought out they put together an In Colour Combination chart and show you how all the new colours can go with the core Colour Collections. I had completely forgotten this until I was reading Kelly Kent's blog post this morning, thanks Kelly as I was a bit stuck! I had started with Perfect Plum and was struggling to come up with a colour combo that I liked, your post saved the day!!

The inside needed some attention too, I used up some of the trimmed off squares from the front and pulled out another new stamp set Label Me Pretty, it is so easy to use with it's matching punch.
