I’ve had a fun weekend out at Stanthorpe as my youngest niece is turning 18. We had a family weekend of celebrations! I made her a chocolate raspberrry layered cake. It was delicious! And happy birthday my sweet girl!!
We have a fun case this week!! We are casing the animals of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue.
There are lots of cute animals cards in the catalogue this year!! It was hard to choose but I ended up going with a combination of the cards on page 54.
I decided to mainly case the card at the top but I also took the idea of creating your own background from the bottom one.
Firstly, I had to check what animal stamp sets I had. Of course, you don’t have to use an animal set but I thought I would. I only have the Free as a Bird set in my current stock (I do have a couple of keepers from ones that have retired). I was going to use an oval to cut out the middle but I went with the Stitched Nested labels dies instead. I stamped the background which is Just Jade cardstock with the leaves from the Free as a Bird set.
I stamped the birds in Memento Black and then coloured using mainly the new In-colour blends, Cinnamon Cider, Misty Moonlight, Magenta Madness, Just Jade and then Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie. I even used the colour lifter to lighten up the tummies of the birds.
The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays set.
Next up is the lovely Sandra in New Zealand.
We would love to see your creations casing the animals of the catalogue so please share over on at our Facebook group.
