Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects CASED from the annual catalogue. If you CASE a project it means you Copy And Share Everything. If you would like a copy of the 2018 – 2019 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.
This is the card (back left in the photo below) that I decided to CASE from page 91 of the annual catalogue, changing the colours and some of the design elements to match a special project I’m making.
When I’m not paper crafting I also love to sew. And the birth of a new baby is the perfect excuse to make a new quilt.
My youngest sister-in-law is just about to give birth to her very first baby (it’s a little girl) and I can’t wait to meet her. I’m making a quick, easy and cosy flannelette quilt for her in soft grays, pinks, and whites, with just a touch of Pool Party aqua (one of my sister-in-law’s favourite colours).
Please excuse the pins and loose threads in the photo below…I’ve just assembled the quilt sandwich layers, ready to finally quilt it all together.
Once I finish quilting it (and I’d better get my skates on as she’s due in the next couple of weeks!) I’ll wrap it up and present it with my matching CASEd card, which I made using a fantastic new punch bundle called Little Elephant bundle.
Check out the teeny tiny details, such as the punch for the elephant’s ears and eyes, and the little bird stamp!
I really loved the striped DSP used on the card in the catty (it’s from the Twinkle Twinkle DSP pack) but the colours didn’t quite match my quilt. So I used my Stampin’ Up! trimmer to cut 1cm strips of Basic Gray, Smokey Slate, Whisper White, Powder Pink and Pool Party card stock and layered them horizontally over three vertical strips of tear and tape.
Ta da…my very own custom striped DSP!
The little elephants were stamped and then punched out and layered on top of Powder Pink and Whisper White card stock that I had cut using the layering squares dies.
Did you spot the little Pool Party bird on top of the smallest elephant? And the layered elephant ear on the largest elephant? I just love these little details!
I used the same “Hello little one” sentiment stamp as the original card in the catty for the front of the card, but I’ve also added in the lovely “Welcome to the World” sentiment from the Baby Bear stamp set for the inside of the card.
And the final touch on the card is a little bow made from the Whisper White bakers twine.
Here is a photo of the card and the quilt together…I can’t wait to see my newborn niece all snuggly and warm, wrapped up in this quilt!
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented, Kimberley Hern.
