Catalogue Inspiration #2


It’s Thursday today so that means another Catalogue Inspiration!  Each Thursday, I post a card I have made that was directly inspired by a sample in the Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalogue.

Here is my catalogue inspired card for this week.  I hope you like it – it will be one of the projects we make at my 6th Annual Christmas Card Class:


Here’s the card (found on page 110 of the catalogue) I was inspired by:


As you can see, this week I used the same stamp set, Lovely as a Tree, for my sample and pretty much kept the layout the same.  I did change the colors used to Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Kraft and Bashful Blue.  Some of the other changes It took this card “up a notch” I think.  For instance, I embossed the large tree using Old Olive Craft ink and Irridescent Ice EP.  I also texturized the Olive background with the Perfect Details Sizzix Texturz plate and of course, sponged with some Creamy Caramel ink for added dimension.  I changed the ribbon bow to a mini library clip to hold the sentiment and added a bit of Chocolate Chip scallop to the layout as well.

I love the addition of the button on the tree in the catalogue sample but haven’t come up with an alternative yet.  If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them because I still feel something is needed on the tree.  I would also like to see any samples you come with.  Hope to hear from you!
