At Caseing the Catty, we have made it to the very last page of the catalogue!! This week, we are caseing the Make a Difference section of the catalogue which features the Sprinkles of Life stamp set.
$3 from the purchase of this cute set goes to Ronald McDonald House Charities to keep families together and surrounded by love when their children are receiving medical treatment far from home. What a great cause!! If you don’t have this set already, you need to get it today!!
There are 4 cute cards featuring this set. I decided to make the tag and turn it into a card.
Since we no longer have the Colour Coach to suggest colour combinations, I have been using My CreateInk, to help me out. All you have to do is pick a colour or two and it will bring up lots of different suggestions.
I decided to use a sheet from the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper stack and that started off my colour combo with Crushed Curry. My CreateInk then suggested Smoky Slate, Night of Navy and Soft Sky.
I found that I had some crushed curry baker’s twine so I tied a cute bow and added it to the top of the tag. Don’t you just love that you can make your own tags with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch!
I stamped the bottom of the basket, flowers and sentiment with the new Basic Gray Archival ink pad and stamped off as I wanted a slightly lighter gray. I then dug out my blender pens (which I seem to be using a lot these days!!) and coloured in the basket and the flowers. I’m very happy with how my basket turned out. Who knew I was arty like that!! Not me!!
In keep with the original tag, I punched out a vellum circle and also curved the birthday sentiment strip. I cheated with the banner at the end and used my triple banner punch to make a nice even banner. Really, I can’t even do little ones even!!
After a brainstorming session with one of my stamping buddies, we decided on the placement of the flower. Who knew it was such a decision!!
Here’s a close up of the flower basket.
I hope you like my card and are inspired to buy the Sprinkles of Life stamp set to help support Ronald McDonald House Charities. Oh and I forgot to mention, but there is a fabulous matching punch, of course!!
