Well February sure disappeared before I knew it!
What better reason to blog again, than to participate in the CASE-ing the Catty (CTC) Challenge! I love the Stampin’ Up! catalogues and love that CTC is all about CASE-ing the awesome projects that are included in all the catties.
You can check out the CTC Challenge page by clicking on this image.
It’s Challenge #21 and this week the challenge is to ‘CASE’ something from the Every Day section of the Occasions Catalogue (pages 18-33).
You can CASE (copy and share everything) a project and put your own twist on it, or use a sketch/layout, colour combo, embellishment, just to name a few examples, as a springboard for your own creations.
The design team have provided some super inspiration – check out their projects on the challenge page.
I’ve chosen the frame on page 18 of the Occasions Catalogue as my “springboard”. I’ve drawn a heart around it in the picture so you can see which item I mean 🙂
I loved the whole piece of Painted Blooms DSP in the large frame and loved the little flags on the small frame, and then I read the underlined text on the page and the plan for my CASE was hatched!
Here’s the result
The Painted Petal Suite is simply Scrumptious – and that’s hefty praise coming from someone who is not really a flower person – I know – shock horror!
I just love how this all co-ordinates – of course that’s the intention … but I can still be impressed … can’t I?
I used the Spring Flowers Embossing Folder to give my frame an ‘aged’ look, hung my banner on the Painted Blooms Cotton Twine and stamped some flowers from the Painted Petals stamp set on the inside of the card.
Did you notice the two colours in my sentiment? I used one of my favourite Stampin’ Up! items to achieve this – my Stampin’ Write Makers. It so easy to colour directly onto the stamp with the Stampin’ Write Markers and get all sorts of cool effects.
I was so happy with how this turned out that I decided to make some more and use them as my thank you cards for those who have ordered with me last month.
It’s like a garden of thanks!
