A BIG hello to you all and welcome back to another week of CASEing the Catty, where every Sunday night the design team creates a hop focusing on a selected section of the current catalogues to CASE (Copy and Share Everything)!
The best bit is that you are able to play along too! All you need to do is CASE a design from the selected section and then upload your photo to our Facebook Group right HERE before the next challenge! Simple. I do hope you can play along!
This week is CTC 163 and we are back to CASEing anything in the Saleabration Catalogue!
Saleabration is the BEST time of the Stampin’ Up! Year because you can earn FREE, yes FREE, products for EVERY $90 spent on orders! If you don’t have a catalogue then contact your local demonstrator, me, any of the girls on the hop, or simply download a copy from the sidebar to see all the amazing freebies on offer!
My CASE this week focuses on the image on Page 8 of the catalogue – which is in fact, the image on the far right above!
I really wanted to cut – yes cut – my Painted with Love Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP). It’s no good leaving it in the packet and hoarding it you know!
This paper is absolutely stunning. It’s thicker than normal, making it ideal for more sturdier crafts such as boxes and packaging, as well as for the usual paper craft uses like cards and scrapbooking. The metallic golds with the pinks and purples is a beautiful combination – really – you NEED to get this paper!
I have also used the super cute Party Panda’s Set that you can choose FREE during Saleabration and created two cards.
PAINTED WITH LOVE PANDA’S
The Designer Paper sheet that I used grades from purples (Rich Razzleberry) down to lighter pinks (Calypso Coral and Powder Pink), so I started with a ‘Pink’ card. I used our Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate for the background as it added to the gold without covering the gorgeous layers of the DSP. For this card I stamped the sentiment Love You from the Party Panda’s set, in rows across the rectangle I created with the Stitched Shape Framelits.
I REALLY like this second card! The Rich Razzleberry in the DSP is just gorgeous combined with gold. This time I punched a LOT of little hearts from the Cookie Cutter Punch and adhered them with tombow to my base piece for a very cool effect! It’s a bit like creating your own embossing folder!
I haven’t labelled the insides yet or attached a sentiment, as I thought they would be good for Valentine’s Day or birthdays!
I would love to hear which one you prefer!
Now it’s time to hop on over to Megan’s page and see what she has CASEd this week!
