Hello friends! It is Thursday and time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. This month the challenge is doing something a little different. Instead of alternating between a sketch and color challenges we are CASEing the Catalog. What does that mean? We are creating a project based on a sample in the 2020 Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalog. This week's challenge is to case the card on page 18 of the catalog.
Isn't that a pretty card? I decided to us a bundle I hadn't inked up yet, Whale Done which is part of the Whale of a Time Suite. I thought the contents of the suite were so cute that I used the number 154126 (which I call the YES to it all number) and ordered the whole suite. I do not do that very often but every part of this suite I really liked.
Most of my project today uses the Whale of a Time 6" x 6" DSP.
The turtles were fussy cut out from the DSP. Fortunately they are easy to cut out. The cute whale was punched from the DSP using the Whale Builder punch. I stamped the sentiment from the Whale Done stamp set on a piece of the Whale of a Time DSP in Pretty Peacock ink and cut it out using a die from the Layering Circles.
Inside you can see a peek of another turtle cut from the DSP on a strip of DSP. This is pretty typical of how I finish up the inside of my cards.
Just a reminder that this month is Bonus Days. What does that mean? For every $50 USD you spend 1 July–3 August 2020 (before shipping and tax), you’ll get a $5 USD Bonus Days coupon code that can be used 4–31 August 2020. SUper cool right?!
