Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop | Theme: New 2019 Holiday Catalogue

Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop. This month we will be sharing projects created using products (or inspiration) from the new 2019 Holiday Catalogue. The full line up below will guide you through all the projects.

Sadly I don't have any new Holiday Catalogue goodies yet, so for my creation today I have taken inspiration from a card in the new Holiday Catalogue and CASE'd (Copy And Selectively Edited) it to create a version of my own using products from the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue.

Unfortunately I can't share a picture (yet) of the original card in the catalogue that inspired my version, however if you are lucky enough to have a copy of the catalogue already.... or can wait till the catalogue goes live on the 4th September to check out the original, you'll find it on page 45.

The original card was a Christmas themed card and as you'll see below, I have turned my version in to a Masculine Birthday / Any Occasions card.

My card ties in with the latest Aussies Who Love Stampin' Up! #AWLSU037 Masculine Card Challenge that started earlier this week. I am excited to finally be able to share it as my Admin Inspiration creation for our new challenge :)

The colours used in my card include Call Me Clover, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede.

My card base is Granny Apple Green and I have layered a piece of Early Espresso cardstock on top that was run through my Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

I partially cut out a Stitched Nested Label using some Whisper White cardstock. Using the Let It Ride stamp set I created my little scene. The horses were stamped first using Early Espresso ink and then I created a little mask for the horses (by stamping the image on a post it note and cutting around the horses), so I could then stamp my forest in the background without stamping through the horses. I have used Call Me Clover and Granny Apple Green inks for the trees. The horses were coloured in using Soft Suede Stampin' Blends.

The sentiment was made using the alphabet stamps from the Make A Difference set and stamped in Early Espresso ink on a small scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock.

I attached pieces of Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon and Call Me Clover Grosgrain Ribbon to my card base using double sided tape, before adhering my Stitched label scene over the top using some Mini Dimensionals. My sentiment was added last using a little Multipurpose liquid glue.
