CTC #262 - Week 2 - CASE the Koala

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, where utilise the projects within the current Stampin' Up! catalogue to inspire our own projects each week. We also invite you to join with us in the challenge each week by using this inspiration in your own creations and uploading a photo to our Facebook page.

This week we are taking our inspiration from this cute little koala card on page 34 of the Mini Occasions Catalogue.

Here is a look at the basic sketch of the card, your's doesn't have to be exact, but used as a guide to your card.

I was inspired to use the lovely Peaceful Poppies suite ... again!  I just love these poppies. I have used a couple of new elements from the suite though, the cute little headers on the outside panels is cut using one of the dies, and the bright ribbon was achieved by coloruing the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding with a Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends marker.  Once I had made the panels I decided they looked to crisp and white so splattered some Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green on them in line with the DSP.  I was really happy with how this turned out, what do you think?

I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week, just use the sketch from page 34 to inspire your creativity, then post a picture of your project to the CTC Facebook page.

Time to hop on over and see what Julia has created this week.

Happy Stamping
