Hello and Welcome to our CASEING the CATTY Sunday blog hop.
We are a design team focussing on the Stampin' Up! catalogue so you see the projects and ideas with new eyes every week. We Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit (CASE) from our catalogues every Sunday night and invite you to join in the fun too with our weekly challenge.
This week, the challenge is all about the Best Route chapter - pages 52 - 65 in the Annual Catalogue.
I took my inspiration from page 61 and the Apron of Love stamp set and coordinating framelits.
I love this frame and I'm totally in love with all those gorgeous utensils in this set!!
This little duo is a gift and coordinating card for my dear friend who turns 50 next week. Originally we were going to be together for her birthday, but we are no longer making the 10 hour drive to go camping with her now, so this will have to be posted.
The frame is made from card stock - actually the white card that comes in the back of the DSP pack. The card was cut to be 11 1/2" x 11 1/2" and then scored at
3/4", 1 1/2", 2 1/4", 3", 8 1/2", 9 1/4", 10", & 10 3/4" on both sides.
5 1/2" x 5 1/2".
Each of the little pieces of the Petal Promenade DSP measures 2" x 2".
The card to accompany the gift was inspired by the lovely card pictured also on page 61.
I've changed the size up to 5" x 5" to coordinate with the frame, but basically it's the same. The colours I've used are: Fresh Fig, Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake and a little Petal Pink for the hearts. I've also embossed the apron with the Subtle embossing folder to give it more texture - it now looks like a linen apron!!
Every time we do this blog hop I'm amazed at the incredible inspiration from everyone on the design team, and I know you'll be inspired too.
We love to share the fun of the challenge with you, so please grab your catalogue, check out pages 52 - 65 and get creating, then add your project to the lineup on our facebook challenge page.
Until Next Time,
Love Julia x
