This month’s “Around the World on Wednesday” blog hop is a super fun theme! We need to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) a card from either the Mini Catalogue & Saleabration brochure OR combine the two. For my card, I’m combining by using a layout in the Mini Catalogue, with a stamp set & DSP from Saleabration.
The card that I based my design can be found on page 34 of the Mini Catalogue:
I chose the “Thanks a Bunch” stamp set & “Day at the Farm” DSP from the Saleabration brochure to combine them with the card layout in the mini.
While the Subtles DSP used on the original card looks great, the pattern that I used from the “Day at the Farm” DSP really stepped up the game!
Once I cut out, layered and adhered the pieces from the DSP to my crumb cake card base, it was time to stamp the carrots.
Two-step stamps have ALWAYS been my favourite images to use, and the carrot images are no exception. I wasn’t sure about the “Thanks a Bunch” set when I first saw it, but I’m really glad I got it! This set is going to be ideal for scrapbooking my garden and canning photos and I think it would also be super cute for kitchen decor, recipe books, and gift packaging home-baked goodies (carrot cake, carrot muffins, etc).
I couldn’t decide which sentiment to use on my card until I noticed the sayings in the “Way to Grow” stamp set! That’s when I realized that the “On the Farm Bundle“, “Thanks a Bunch” and the sentiments from the “Way to Grow” sets all work together perfectly!
Aside from the carrots and the sentiment, there’s no other stamping on my card – so easy! See that little bunny??? It’s cut from a teeny die from the “On the Farm Dies” collection!Product List
The card that I created today looks quite different from the original card that I cased from the mini catalogue, but the layout design is virtually the same. Quite often I will use card samples in our Stampin’ Up! publications as the starting point for my inspiration, usually tweaking the design as I go, and switching out stamp sets, papers, colours, etc. Today’s card is a great example of that, and I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed creating it. Creating this card also reminded me of how versatile our DSP is, simply by cutting and using select images from the patterns onto our cards.
I encourage you to give this month’s AWOW theme a try, by caseing a card from the Mini catalogue or SAB brochure and/or combining inspiration from them both, as I did.
