There’s nothing like a weekly blog hop to make you realise how quickly the weeks roll around. Hello March!!!
This week at CASEing the Catty we’re celebrating the Gingham Gala suite and subsequent pages of the catalogue.
Gingham isn’t usually my go-to favourite, but it’s growing on me! I loved the brightness of this card on page 34 of the Occasions Catalogue.
I used strips of Gingham Gala DSP across a landscape Whisper White thick card base and added a cupcake centrepiece
I’ve translated lots of elements from the original card into my version – the gingham DSP, use of white twine, flowers & Grapefruit Grove sentiment. They are now just in cake form!!! There’s so many options in the Piece of Cake stamp set, I feel like I’m still creating with new cakes for each card.
I’ve used the colours from the Gingham Gala suite to create the cake elements – Highland Heather for the swirly frame, Grapefruit Grove for the cake and coordinating flowers with Stampin’ Blends.
Although I’m generally a ‘straight’ kinda girl when it comes to adding pieces to my cards, I loved the wonky overlapping effect of layering the DSP. This came about because I cut the DSP into 1″ strips without doing the maths – and then they didn’t fit. I wasn’t cutting them again, so I just added them all on top of each other!
There’s more to this challenge than Gingham – be inspired by pages 34-37 of the Occasions Catalogue and share your projects with us on the CASEing the Catty Facebook page.
Thank you for hopping with us today. The next fabulous design team member is visit is Siobhan Fitzsimmons with her beautiful butterfly creations.
Have a great week! I hope it involves lots of stamping!
