CASE-ing the Catty - Mother's Day


Hi there

It's Sunday night and the CTC Crew have lots of inspiring Mother's Day projects for you this week. 

You may have come from looking at the lovely project on Julia's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can start your journey here and continue by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.


This week,  I have taken my inspiration from the gift bag shown on the right in the photo above, from page 42 of the Occasions Catalogue.  It uses the 'Special Reason' stamp set and coordinating 'Stylish Stems' Framelits dies and I've translated the layout to a soft and feminine card. I'm sad that these products are retiring at the end of May, but the bundle is still available to purchase, at the moment.

I started with a Very Vanilla card base, using some of the new thick Very Vanilla card stock that will be available in the 2017-18 Annual Catalogue. A layer of the bokeh design from the 'Falling in Love' designer series paper forms the backdrop for the layers of embellishments.

The'Petal Burst' embossing folder used on the banner works well with the floral elements and I have offset it to the right. The stamped and die cut flowers were layered over the banner with the greeting label sitting on top. The large flower was inked in Blushing Bride and a sponge dauber was used to add some extra colour around the centre, before stamping. The open flower was die cut from Blushing Bride Glimmer paper.

This closeup shows the detail in the stamped and die cut leaves and the pearl embellishment on the glimmer flower and greeting label. The greeting comes from the 'Circle of Spring' stamp set, which is also retiring. It has a great set of small-ish greetings that work well with circles and small label die cuts. The leaves were stamped in Crumb Cake and the open die cut leaf is in Soft Suede.

For the inside, I printed (from my computer) a verse on the writing panel in Soft Suede colour first (you can find my chart for printing Stampin' Up! colours here) and then added the strip of Copper washi at the bottom. The small flower and leaves in the bottom corner  finish it off.

Beautiful!! One of the things I love about your cards is how you finish them on this inside. I never paid much attention to that until I started looking at your cards. Now I try to do a little something inside as well.

Patty Stanley

Love your card and the sweet verse inside, and I especially love that you shared your chart for printing SU colors as I print a lot of verses too? Are you a member of SUDOL? (they are a group of Stampin'UP demonstrators that share lots of charts, products and ideas) They would Love Love this chart!

That's so pretty - it will make the Mum feel very special. Love the glimmer flower - that really sets it apart. I didn't realise there were 2 different leaf dies - they look great together. Beautiful card Judy
