CTC190: Artistic Expressions Section

I’m back today playing along with CASEing the Catty Challenge, CASEing the Artistic Expressions Section of the Annual Catalogue.  I chose this card from pg 140.2018_AC_P140A

I tried recreating… the only major thing I changed is the die cuts, I swapped the Eclectic Expressions Thinlits for the Petals & More Thinlits.

I started off my card with a Lemon Lime Twist card base, I stamped the leaf from the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set in Lemon Lime Twist.  I sometimes stamp twice without re-inking.  I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the flamingo, the body and legs I stamped in Melon Mambo, the body I stamped in Flirty Flamingo and the detailed stamps, I stamped Memento.

I then took the leaf and stamped over the flamingo in stamped off Flirty Flamingo.  I stamped the sentiment in Memento. I cut out a scalloped square and cut out the middle with a normal square using the Layering Squares Framelits. I adhered the scalloped frame with cut strips from the edge of a sheet of Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Taking the Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker from the Bright Collection of Stampin’ Write Markers, I spritzed my card.

Using the Petals & More Thinlits, I die cut the leaf and the flowers from Whisper White Cardstock.  I adhered the flower to a piece of Vellum with Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue and let it dry, before fussy cutting the flower.  I adhere the flamingo piece to the card base with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I tore of a section of the die cut leaves to make it smaller.  I adhered the leaves to the back of the vellum with Tear & Tape Adesive.  I then use Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card,  I added on some Stampin’ Dimensionals to help secure the flowers in place.

Until next time… Happy Stampin’,

Lauren
