Caseing The Catty is focussed back on Sale-A-Bration again this week. With so many lovely ideas in that little catalogue, I’m sure we’ll be back again soon. Welcome if you have just joined me from Rebecca’s blog or if you are starting here with me.
Today, I have a quick little share with you and a great little tip. But first up my inspiration came from this project in the Sale-a-bration catalogue.
Those panda’s a really cute but I went for a different set today. It’s one of my new favourites… Birthday Wit!
Here I have teamed it up with Bubble and Fizz DSP pack, which is a Sale-a-bration exclusive. Love the colours in this pack of paper. I used two different patterns to create the flag ends. I didn’t want to cover up the pattens to much, so I left off the backing circle, which appears behind the panda. Instead I used the bubble speech stamp in the set which gives that same effect. I felt it needed a little more Calypso Coral to match in with the Sentiment, so I added another thinner flag across the top.
When deciding on the widths of my flags, one needed to be wider than the Triple Banner Punch’s widest one at 50mm. Normally I just reach for my paper snips and do these manually. However, I had this idea the minute I saw the Tailored Tag punch in the Occasions catalogue. I knew I would be using this punch for creating flag ends too.
Sliding in my paper, cut to a width of 60mm, I aligned the sides to the width of the punch and pushed my paper in about half way through the face and punched. Wa-la… it worked, flag end to a wider size strip! I was pretty pleased.
Next up in the hop is the clever Peta Stephen.
After you’ve enjoyed the awesome hop with the team, I’m looking forward to seeing your CASE over in our challenge group. Be sure to load up your creation by 6pm next Sunday night, February 18th.
Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
