Sweet Sayings For your Birthday CTC 162

Welcome back to another week of CASE-ing The Catty. The crew is made up of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all parts of Australia and New Zealand.You are at the blog of Rachel Palmieri, Independent Stampin' Up!® demonstrator. I run classes at my home studio in South Morang, Victoria, share Stampin' Up!® products and tools at parties for my customers, coach my lovely team and create cards and the occasional 3D project.

It's a shame I couldn't justify racing out to the shops to buy a cake stand to use like my inspiration picture. It's a small picture on page 11, of a Powder Pink card with a large circle cut from the centre.

Kind of close so far, although my circle is off to the right. I displayed Sweet Soiree DSP behind the circle, and then I pulled Sunshine Sayings from the shelf and cut Congrats in silver foil, stamped 'on one more year' for the banner crossing the circle.

Finally I turned to my new Petal Palette supplies and embossed with one of the pair of TIEF in that suite, and diecut the leafy branch from the glimmer paper in the Myths & Magic Suite.

The other side of that gorgeous piece of paper is equally lovely, in a different way, so I continued on to make a quick birthday card using a special quick and easy technique. This card was more exclusively using Petal Palette with the embossing folder, the sprig of leaves and the label die all coming from that suite.

 I've inked up one side of the embossing folder before rolling a piece of thick Whisper White through the Big Shot. The uneven inking is what you should expect, but look how it has shown up those small spots surrounding the flowers on the embossing folder. Now you can do this in reverse too, and you'll have coloured flowers and a white background.

 The sentiment on the outer of the card is Sunshine Sayings, as is the splash of paint both inside and out, while the longer greeting inside is a favourite of mine from the fabulous Picture Perfect Birthday!

Please go on to check which project the very talented Sandra Collett has CASEd.
