CASEing the Catty Challenge 132 – Birthdays

I decided to play along with another CASEing the Catty Challenge. This week it was birthdays.

When I first saw the Cool Treats stamp set I fell in love with it. Who doesn’t love some ice-cream on a hot summers day??? So this is the card that I took my inspiration from….

Now I know it is not summer but I wanted to have a play with the new in colours and the Cool Treat set lent itself perfectly to this.

I used Lemon Lime Twist, Sweet Sugarplum and Berry Burst as the main colours. I really love how the Lemon Lime Twist pops against the Berry Burst and Sweet Sugarplum. It just adds a bit of freshness to the card.

 

CASEing the Catty Challenge 131 – Everyday Occasions

This week I decided to play along with the CASEing the catty challenge. I was inspired by two different cards in the Everyday Occasions section of the brand new Annual Catalogue.

The first card that I liked in the Everyday Occasions section were these cards. I loved the strips of paper that were used to create an effective thank you card.

 So I created this card…….

I used Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo to create the strips. I love the bright, fresh colour combination.

The second card that caught my eye was from one of my all time favourite stamp sets – Pretty Kitty. I just adore how cute those little kittens are.

I changed the colours and the ribbon choice to create this…..

 

I sued Blushing Bride and Basic Grey cardstock. I copied the layout but changed the kitten and sentiment. I added silver metallic thread to compliment the card.

I love how both cards turned out. Similar colour schemes but completely different looks!!!!
