Anyone For A BBQ? CTC197

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. This week the design team are focusing on pages 28-35.

In an effort to be organised, I am creating a little ahead of time although with a little further thought I would have made this a Happy Anniversary card! The sentiment from Sitting Pretty is perfect for an anniversary card. My hubby and I celebrated 41 years of marriage last Friday, so we gave ourselves a weekend away on the coast.

 I made really good use of DSP for the card with Wood Textures for the background and the 2018-2020 In Colour DSP for the BBQ apron. Both of these are in 6" by 6" packs containing 48 for the Wood and 40 for In Color.

 Apron of Love is the stamp and Apron Builder Framelits are the dies. You can buy them bundled together for a 10% discount through to June 2019. There are dies for baking utensils as well as the BBQ set.

We do enjoy a glass of wine, usually while we cook dinner, so I stamped a single glass from Half Full, for a splash of colour (and humour?)

 Can you see how the red card from Timeless Tidings inspired my card? I decided not to put anything along the right under the banner but I liked the banner with the flagged ends facing into the card, and lowered a little from the top.

Now you can head on over to the remarkable Rebecca Scurr
