Hello and welcome to another Sunday Night Blog Hop with CASEing the Catty. We are inspired each week by our awesome Stampin' Up! catalogues - and this week we feature the Cupcakes and Carousels chapter of the Occasions Catalogue - pages 8-13
And I wanted to have a go at this great quick and simple card on the left of page12. I love the idea of the quick and simple projects illustrated in the catalogue, and this card looks super cool!!
I don't own the Super Duper stamp set they've used in the Catalogue,
I've substituted in Birthday Bright (which coincidentally is featured on page 13)
and I made 4 cards, all the same, and all a little different!!
I've used the same colours illustrated in the catalogue, and also tried to emulate the layout as much as possible too.
As the stamp set Birthday Bright doesn't have the little starry shapes illustrated in the catalogue project, I've add in a couple of images from: Balloon Celebration, Perpetual Birthday Calendar, and some gold and bermuda bay sequins.
Which is your favourite?
My teenage daughters declared their favourite to be the card with the sequins - they like the way I've coloured the balloons on this one too.
I think my favourite is the card with the bermuda bay 'happy birthday' greeting.
And, use this awesome link to add your project into our facebook challenge for the week and show us your fabulous project inspired by the Cupcakes and Carousels chapter of the Occasions Catalogue.
