CTC#333 CASE SALE-A-Bration

The CASE-ing The Catty Crew are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from Australia & New Zealand who take inspiration weekly from the catalogues. The catalogues are a fantastic resource and we love to inspire you to seek inspiration there too.

We are CASE-ing the SAB catty this week, and it is amazing how much inspiration is in there. I turned to near the back, page 14 in fact and the Delicate Dahlia stamp. It sparked my creative juices and I decided to try the design using sunflowers.

There are a couple of stamp sets with sunflowers, and initially I was using Jar Of Flowers. This stamp has been neglected of late, so it probably enjoyed seeing some ink today.

I was quite happy with the card, although there was only one stamp to use and it was difficult to not stamp in rows. The strips were already cut from preparing cards and card fronts, so I chose a few colours that suited and glued them to the card.

There are a number of the leftover circles from Picture This dies lying about my craft table, so I stamped a sentiment from In Symmetry onto one, as the original card had a round label.

Wondering what it would look like if I stepped the card up a little, I fetched the Sunflower dies I have. They are kept inside the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp case, and with the 2 different sized flowers and some leaves, it was more similar to the Dahlia stamp. I changed the orientation for the second card, and used less scrap strips, but added diecut pieces and some loosely woven ribbon.

Stitched So Sweetly dies have some beautiful labels, and this is one of the smaller ones. These are both quite simple cards to make, a casual stamper with minimal experience should be able to manage them.
