Case-ing The Catty #6 Kids

I am really enjoying CASE-ing The Catty because it pushes my creativity a little bit further. The card I've CASE-ed is on page 86 of the Australian catalogue, using Boys Will Be Boys stamp set. I liked the way they'd used the Chevron Border Punch, an arrow and star to draw the eye to the sentiment.

I wouldn't have thought to use washi tape at the bottom of the panel, but I'm glad I did as it ties the colours together beautifully. I expect I'm not the only one who buy pretty things, and then just hoards them!
I've added a lot more punched pieces than I'd have normally done AND I'm very pleased with the result.

I make a lot of cards for kids, but I haven't many current 'kid-type' stamp sets. This time I pulled out a great 'any occasion' stamp set,  Pictogram Punches. I bought this set as soon as we were allowed to, because I love the versatility. I like having more stars, hearts and flowers to punch out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, I like the moon to go with stars (makes a super-cute baby card) and I love the vase of flower stems, even though I haven't used that stamp yet.I used Stampin' Write Markers to ink up the  star sentiment, Momento black ink for the birthday greeting. 

Something To Say is another stamp set I ordered very quickly and I have used quite a lot already. It also has the stars, hearts and flowers that match the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, and the Happy Birthday sentiment I used here. There isn't a lot of stamping on my card, it was a good opportunity to use punches and frramelits. I actually used the August Stampin' Up! promotion for Big Shot and Bundles topurchase my Star Framelits and a NEW Bright and Beautiful stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue. If you buy the Big Shot in August you can choose a bundle (there's four on offer) for free, or if like me, you already have a Big Shot, you can purchase one or more of the bundles at 15% discount. Check that offer out here.

Now I'll wait to see what you CASE from pages 82-93 of the catalogue, and don't forget to share!
If you're in Australia, don't forget you can shop for Stampin' Up! products 24/7 and they are shipped to you very quickly via Australia Post.

Have a good weekend...
