Aren't these such original titles? "Catalog Inspiration 1." "Catalog Inspiration 2." I promise tomorrow will not be CI 3!
Here's my second "Catalog Inspiration." The original is on page 114. Here's mine…
I changed the green circle to Gable Green. I wasn't looking at the catalog when I made it, so my circles lined up differently. I like the way the catalog designers had the circles going all the way to the corner better than the way I did it, I think.
I also changed the sentiment, and I added texture to the front of the card. Oh – and I stamped the little flower from "One of a Kind" on the circles to add a little depth to the card stock. (I love using those artsy terms! What it really means is, I thought the circles were a little blah, so I stamped on them.)
This is actually more of a CASE of "r2mckinl"'s card here. I loved the colors she used.
Here's the complete supply list –
Stamp sets: Pick a Petal, One of a Kind
Ink: Rose Red, Chocolate Chip, Taken with Teal, Gable Green classic; White gel pen
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Taken with Teal, Whisper White, Gable Green card stock
Accessories: Crafter's Tool Kit, Big Shot, Stampin' Up! Backgrounds I texturz plate, Circle Scissor Plus, stampin' dimensionals
That's it! It was super easy once I figured out what I wanted to do. I'm not totally pleased with my "faux stitching." It's actually worse than my real stitching, if you can believe it. To me, it just looks like holes punched in card stock with lines connecting them. (Which, really, is what it is…..)
Gotta run! My very patient and sweet hubby is waiting for me to watch a movie.
