Bloomin' Caty CASE

This is a simple watercolour card we made at some of my recent workshops, if it looks familiar it's because it's a direct CASE from the Occasions Mini Caty. I really rarely do that kind of thing but I was soooo in love with the card I knew it would make it into my repertoire! I did change it up a bit, I did not have the pretties kit at the time so I went for a more rustic hemp to tie on the image, and I added some bling down below by embossing the word 'bloom' in silver EP bellow. For some reason I cannot recall, I didn't use the spiral punch on my sample piece but my students did and it looks great. Another thing I added was to stamp the bee from this set tone on tone on the blue paper, it just adds a touch more whimsy! I really think Stampin' Up! did a great job at putting together this stamp set besides simply being gorgeous it has all the elements you might want to make cards. For the two main images, one is long and narrow while the other one is square so there is sure to be an image to fit your lay out. The definition and the script-like word "Bloom" work really well together and then you have a bonus bee to through in for an added touch. This set is a real joy to work with!
