Stampin' Up Australia - CASE-ing the Catty #25 - Baby Card - Celebrate Today


Welcome to this week's CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop! Welcome from Jackie Noble's page.

This week the challenge is all about CASE-ing from the Baby pages of the Occasions catalogue, or being inspired by some of the projects from our Design Team. 

CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything.  This whole blog hop is about using the current Stampin' Up! Catalogues to help you create.  Sometimes crafters need a springboard to just get started and the catalogues are certainly a demonstrator or customer's best resource.

Here's my card..

I used the Sweet Dreams DSP with the Celebrate Today stamp set and made a cute hot air balloon instead of a word bubble. I kept the Sweet Dreams Designer Button and put it on the other side of the card. 

I stamped off the Hello Honey balloon so that the base was a shade lighter. I then did a full stamp with the little starburst stamp over the top. 

The Balloon Framelits make life easy - the balloon and 'B-A-B-Y-!' banner were a cinch! These can be purchased as a bundle with the coordinating stamp set. :)

Here's the original inspiration:

I'm playing along with The Paper Players this week who are all encouraging us to use die cuts on our projects. :)
