Sparkle On Your Birthday CTC#232

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 we are CASEing Artistic Expressions, pages 106- 159 of the new catalogue.

My CASE was selected from page 110 and used It Starts With Heart bundle, including the stamp, dies and embossing folder.

 I really like the texture provided by embossing folders, but frequently forget to use them, so this time I doubled up and used two, -  Corrugated on the Lovely Lipstick, Button, Button on Whisper White.

The colours are bright and bold on this card, the contrasts add a lot of fun! These images are a pleasure to colour and the dies help to make them stand right out.

Happy Birthday is a sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays, You make everything sparkle is included in It Starts With Art. The Happy Birthday stamp was positioned first on the Stamparatus and step-stamping was used to stamp it at regular intervals down the side of the card.

I thought I could stamp both together, but the 'sparkle' stamp didn't butt up close enough to be even. By positioning it later on the Stamparatus plate, it was a perfect fit to also step-stamp down the side of the card.

You may have come from Siobhan before this, but if you have started with me, just click on 'next' and continue around the blog hop to Kelly Kent, who is bound to have something fabulous to share.
