CASE-ing the Catty #3 – Birthday

Wow – week 3 already of the CASE-ing the Catty (CTC) challenge – time flies when you’re having fun.

 

So challenge # 3 looks at the Birthday section of the catalogue – with the idea being to browse through pages 42 – 59 and find a project that you would like to re-create.
The challenge site says: You can directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combo, embellishment, just to name a few examples, as a springboard for your own creations.

I used the layout of the “Thank You” card on page 46 as inspiration for my card, but rather than a “Thank You’ sentiment I substituted the cupcake and other stamps from the Cupcake Party stamp set. This is a brand new set which I had to mount to make this card – yay – I always find it so exciting to put the first ink onto a set! Cupcakes are very dear to our hearts here. Beth makes and decorates cupcakes for morning tea / supper after my classes. So we were really pleased to see the new stamp set which matches the Cupcake Builder punch and just love the dotty pattern on the liner – too cute!

I chose the bright Beach House washi tape (Real Red, Crushed Curry and Pool Party) to add the accents which meant I could match it perfectly with another of the new Baker’s Twines – Crushed Curry! Colour co-ordination is one of the many things I love about Stampin’ Up! products.

I wanted to add a sentiment to the card and stamped it onto the washi tape in Black Stazon. You can see that I added glitz to the card – I used 2-way glue pen to adhere some Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter. We sometimes have edible glitter on our real life cupcakes so I had to add some to this one too!

And inside there is another tasty cupcake and a little more washi to carry the theme through.

I am enjoying the CTC challenges and look forward to playing along.

    Thanks Alison – I sort of forget about washi which was one of the reasons I chose this card to CASE.
