Welcome to this week’s CASEing the Catty Blog Hop, it’s been a busy night with this being my second Hop for the night.  This week our inspiration comes from the Kids & Babies section, pages 80-91 of the Annual Catalogue.   You may have arrived here from Jackie’s gorgeous project, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you visit all the Design Team’s Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.

CTC 187

My assistant Marvi chose the card I’m CASEing this week.  While I was looking through the Catalogue for inspiration he decided to sit on it.  Well, there was no moving him so the card on page 88 is the card I’ve CASEd.  That’s his ” I’m not moving, Mum” face.

I’ve CASEd the card on the left, here’s a better look at it.

Annual Catalogue page 88

I’ve used a similar colour scheme, Calypso Coral, Grapefruit Grove and Pear Pizzazz.

My Grapefruit Grove layer has been embossed with the new Tufted 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I’ve also inked up the embossing folder to create the same pattern behind my sentiment.

The sentiment is from the Detailed With Love stamp set and punched with the Pretty Label Punch.  The flowers are from Petal Palette.  I’ve added a vellum banner and some Calypso Coral 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon behind the sentiment.

Some Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and a Faceted Dot finished my card off nicely.

Hello and welcome to my blog.  It’s a busy Sunday evening this week as I’m taking part in two Blog Hops tonight.  For the first hop I’m hopping with 18 other talented ESAD members from Australia and New Zealand, showcasing Stampin’ Up!

For the month of July Stampin’ Up! has a promotion on their DSP, Buy 3 and get 1 FREE!!!   You have a choice of 10 fabulous new DSP’s from the current Annual Catalogue.  Included in the promo is Nature’s Poem, Twinkle Twinkle, Under the Mistletoe, Animal Expedition, Best Route, Petal Promenade, Tranquil Textures, Garden Impressions, Tropical Escape and my favourite, Wood Textures.

I’ve used two of my favourite DSP’s, Animal Expedition and Wood Textures to create this double easel card.

My inspiration comes from Patty Bennett and her Tropical Chic card.  I’ve changed her measurements to suit Australian A4 card stock.  If you’d like the measurements please send me a message and I’ll email them to you.

 I’ve layered Animal Expedition DSP over Shaded Spruce card stock.  My card base is Grey Granite.  One of the many wonderful things about SU products is the co-ordination.  Did you know the Animal Friends Thinlits co-ordinate with some of the animals on the DSP?  That’s right, you can just die cut them straight from the DSP!!!

I’ve used the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies on some Wood Textures DSP then stamped the “Happy Birthday” from the Detailed With Love stamp set on some Whisper White card stock.  I’ve cut around my sentiment then adhered it to the back of a Wooden Frames Element.  The leaves are die cut from Animal Friends Thinlits in Shaded Spruce and Lemon Lime Twist.

Don’t you just love those cute little frogs sitting on a tree branch?  I’ve been making a few cards with animals on them lately and Marvi, my assistant, has been keen to help.   My poor Kangaroo and leaves didn’t stand a chance lol.

This week my inspiration comes from the “Happy Birthday” card on page 70 of the Annual Catalogue.

Annual page 70

I’ve used the same stamp set, Perennial Birthday, but I’ve used it in different colours.

I’ve layered the Graceful Glass Vellum over a Thick Whisper White card base then added a layer of Coastal Cabana card stock behind my stamped images.

I’ve embossed the greeting in White Embossing Powder on Blueberry Bushel card stock.  The flowers are stamped in Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, Pineapple Punch and Blueberry Bushel.  I’ve also added some Pineapple Punch 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.
