Bron’s 60th Birthday Blog Hop # 4

CASEing the Catty, a Page in the Sixties

Today I am joining Bron Eastley’s 60th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop. We’re a group of stamping friends that are celebrating Bron’s 60th Birthday in 2022 with six blog hops, over six months, with six fun themes!  This is the forth Hop and the theme for our projects today is – CASEing the Catty, a Page in the Sixties.

CASEing from the Catty is such a great way to start a card or layout. I often tell crafters that the Catalogue is not just a Catalogue – but a source of inspiration and ideas.

I myself, often use the Catalogue when looking for Colour combinations, Embellishment ideas or layouts.

For this Blog Hop I have put together 3 cards.

From Page 61 I CASE’d this card.

Here is my version:

I used the Hues of Happiness DSP and the In the Moment Stamp Set (Ohh love that Stamp set).

The next two cards really pushed the boundaries of my comfort zone because they both feature bright and bold colours.

On page 62 you will find this packaging idea that I used for inspiration for my next card.

Here is my version:

I used Parakeet Party card as the base, Hues of Happiness DSP with the Plentiful Plants Stamp Set. Then finished it with the Tahitian Tide Metalic Woven Ribbon and Daffodil Delight Glossy Dots.

Page 65 features this mini card. I used both the layout and the colours to make a card.

Here is my card

I used the new Splendid Thoughts Stamp set and Splendid Stems dies – that just happen to be on Page 65 of the new Mini Catalogue (July-December 2022).

This was really fun! I think I will go off and CASE a few more cards from the 60’s pages. While I am doing that – you can head off to the next Crafter in Bron’s Blog Hop. Next up is Cathy Proctor. Click the link below to visit Cathy’s Blog.
