Welcome to Bronwyn’s fourth Birthday Blog hop! You should have come to me from Chantell Randall.
We’re a group of stamping friends who are celebrating Bron’s 60th Birthday in 2022 with six blog hops, over six months, with six fun themes! Tonight we are CASEing the Catty from a page in the sixties (i.e. any card from pages 60-69 in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue 2022-23). I’ve decided to CASE the hedgehog card on page 61 – top right in the photo below.
I loved the way this card combined the Happy Forest Friends DSP with the gorgeous Happy Hedgehogs stamp set. The tree DSP works really well with the hedgehogs and makes them look like they are in the woods.
I’ve made my card 3D by making a fancy fold that I found on YouTube created by an overseas Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, but I’m not sure what this fancy fold is called? It was really fun to make and I altered the measurements to fit our Australian A4 cardstock.
Here’s what it looks like laying flat.
A lot of the elements on this card are images fussy cut from various DSP designs in the Happy Forest Friends DSP. The colour scheme of Calypso Coral and Soft Suede that I used to stamp and colour the hedgehogs and the large mushroom are inspired by the DSP.
My youngest niece just turned 4 last week so I made this card for her birthday, using the Alphabest stamp set and more fussy cut images to personalise the inside of the card.
The Best Label punch (part of the Alphabest bundle) was the perfect size to punch out the “Happy Birthday” sentiment on the front of the card from the Penguin Place stamp set.
Next up on Bronwyn’s Birthday Blog hop is Vicki Arrowsmith. I can’t wait to see what Vicki has created today!
If you live in Australia, you can find and purchase these products in my Stampin’ Up! Online Store.
I’ll be back tomorrow with the Heart of Christmas blog hop and then again on Wednesday with the AWH Colour Creations blog hop, where we will be showcasing Blushing Bride.
Until then, wherever you are in the world, stay safe, stay calm … and keep on crafting xxx
