For instance, I was inspired by THIS card on page 157 of the Annual Catalog using the All for Baby bundle:
Using the Cactus Cuties from the January-June Mini catalog, this is my project inspired by that one:
It was surprisingly easier than I imagined! Here HOW TO:
- On a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of basic white card stock, mask off the card at 1.75″ using washi or painters tape. Use a blending brush to add Pale Papaya ink to the first panel, getting lighter as you move up the card. Repeat and mask off the Papaya side AND farther down the card at 3.5″ for Soft Succulent. Then mask the first two colors and blend on Misty Moonlight.
- Lay the mask over the card front and use a sponge dauber to color the pattern over the same colors. You may want to keep a mask over the other sections so you don’t get the colors mixed, but I just eyeballed it! It will help to tape the mask down on your desk so it doesn’t move and your card under the mask.
- Stamp and fussy cut cactus. I used the punch only for the flowers.
Isn’t that just FUN? I had a blast making this card, truly!
Now you can now move on to Annette’s post to see how she was inspired by the annual catalog to create her project with the Symbols of Fortune suite from the January-June catalog. I hope this helps you look at the catalog as an Idea Book every day.Product List
