Happy Birthday (Hand-Penned Petals / Nuts About Squirrels) – CASE the Catalogue

by Kylie

Hi everyone, the samples in the Stampin’ Up!® catalogue are always so inspiring to me. I find they are not only helpful when the mojo goes missing, they sometimes remind you of a technique you might have forgotten, or one you might not have tried yet. So today I am sharing another card which I’ve CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) from the new Sale-A-Bration catalogue. It features the wonderful Beautifully Penned 12×12 Designer Series Paper. The paper pack contains 12 sheets (4 of 3 double-sided designs) and as well as having the nice penned illustrations, the papers also feature basic black and white designs. We are going to use three of the paper designs on our card today and we are going to use the technique of stamping directly onto patterned paper.

To start, select the papers from the Beautifully Penned Paper pack you want to use. We are using the scallop design as our background and we’ve diecut a scalloped border with a die from the Penned Flowers die set. We have used a dark flower paper for our next layer and this as die cut with a Stitched Rectangle die. Next up with used the dot paper and stamped with one of the flowers from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set. This was then die cut with the coordinating Penned Flowers die. Colour them with your preferred colouring medium.

I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Basic White cardstock and then die cut it with a die from the Tasteful Labels die set. I used the Nuts about Squirrels stamp set for my sentiment.

All that is left is to assemble the card. I also added some of the gold embellishments from the Expressions In Ink Ephemera Pack to add more interest, as well as the Pale Papaya & White Ribbon.

Here’s the card…

The Beautifully Penned 12×12 Designer Series Paper pack is so fun to create with and so versatile too. If you choose it as your free item when you place a qualifying order, please share what you create with us. I’d love to see what you come up with.
