Sweet Soiree

Hi Crafters!

Yippety do-da Yippety Day, my oh my what a wonderful day!! Do you what today is? That’s right.. it’s Stampin’ Up! 2018 Occasion & Sale-a-Bration Catalogue release day!!

One of my absolute favourites from the new Occasions Catalogue is the Sweet Soiree suite.  Featuring stunning florals, silver metallic designs and a gorgeous array of embellishments, this suite will have you creating elegant designs in no time!

Since I first saw the front cover of the  catalogue, the card made using this suite captured my attention.  So today I finally sat down and CASEd it, changing a few minor things to suit my preferences.  Here is my completed card:

I opted for a Flirty Flamingo cardstock base, and layered this with watercolour card.  The trick with using watercolour cardstock is to wet your cardstock initially with an aqua painter, creating a base on which you want to use as a rough guideline for where you want your colour to run/ be present.  Then gently add your desired ink colour, in my case this was Flirty Flamingo & Peakaboo Peach, using your aqua painter.  Start lighter initially and build your colour up to your desired level, ensuring you don't use too much water.  

The beauty of this card is that it uses a range of the framelits and stamps in the suite, and can be used for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and engagements.  I really liked the dual-coloured flower that was on the original catalogued card - to get this, I stamped the flower with Daffodil Delight, and then used a finger dauber to gently dab some Crisp Canteloupe around the edges.   

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my card today, it was a real pleasure to see it come together :)
