Hello again!

It’s Sunday night so that means it’s time for another CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop.

This week the crew will CASE (Copy and Share Everything) from the Petal Passion suite in the Occasions Catalogue on pages 22 – 27.

If you follow my Facebook Page then you would see I have been playing A  LOT with the Petal Palette Suite.  I absolutely love it! But tonight I thought I would pop a few more pages in and focus on the Charming Cafe Bundle on Page 25.

I know I say it a lot, but this bundle really caught my eye and I had been waiting (not so) patiently to purchase it for my ‘collection’.  I am a bit of a sucker for a fancy framelit and these were no exception.  What really grabbed my attention was how easily the framelits work together to make a multi layered or dimensional card.

Charming Cafe

I began by creating a bit of a quirky card CASEing the image above.  However, I wanted my Chairs and tables behind the cafe window, so I added an acetate layer to my card.  I need the stamp-a-majig to line it up properly in my window – which ended up being quite fiddly as the acetate kept moving when I tried to move the stamp-a-majig.  Not for the feint of heart I tell you!

I didn’t mind the overall affect, but I was very impatient with my acetate as I used Momento Ink on it hoping to colour the brickwork, but it took far too long to dry and as you can see – it smudged and didn’t dry at all – so if you wanted to do this you could use the archival ink and colour from the back of the image.

Never mind…you live and learn and at least I had my colour choices right now, so on to my next project…the one I really wanted to create.  A diorama card.  I have made a few of these over the years and we all know I love a 3D card, but this set really just lent itself to creating one of these so very easily!  The framelit that cuts out the seats and table whilst leaving the base intact does all the work for you for this card!  I even pinched a couple of birdies from the Flying Home Stamp set! Shhhh. And colouring is sooooo simple with the Stampin Blends to really make your project pop!

Now I LOVE how this one turned out! I guess you could say I ended up CASEing myself! Lol!

 What do you think?

Unfortunately I cannot find the You Tube video I used a few years ago to create a Diorama card, but I am giving away the tutorial with any order placed with me during March.  And don’t forget – March is the LAST month to get any of the FREE Saleabration items with a $90 or $180 purchase!  Don’t miss out!

Now it’s time to hop on over to Monique and see what she has created for you all xx
