Hello and Welcome to Handmade by Julia Quinn and our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY.
To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE from our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues.
This week, we are CASEING from pages 161 to 167 of our Annual Catalogue which feature our Bundles Collection. And there's a bunch of great inspiration!!
I stopped at the first page - 161 and the project featuring the Brewed For You Bundle - I've CASED the layout, and the idea for using a bottle.
For my background detail I have some of the stunning Sun Prints designer paper which works well with my colour scheme of Starry Sky. Placing this feature piece right on the left edge of the card is something I would never think to do ..... but I like it!! And I was surprised I would when I decided to CASE this layout!!
I love the way the Vintage Christmas stamp set coordinates with the Vintage bottle punch. I have adjusted the layout of the greeting though (from the one in the catalogue), as I wanted more of the bottle to show. That's because I tried this cool technique of adding clear embossing all over the bottle to create a glassy surface - doesn't it look fabulous!! I was inspired by Anna who used the same technique on her project here.
Inside the card features some simple stamping using the Very Best Occasions stamp set along with the Vintage Christmas stamp set (which I've used for a birthday card!!)
I hope you keep hopping around everybody to see all the amazing projects we share.
