CTC #112 - Cupcakes & Carousels

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty, this week we are taking our inspiration from the Cupcakes & Carousels section of the Occasions Catalogue, p 8-13.

I took my inspiration from this card that you can see on page 10, I liked the colours and layout of it, and wanted to use both in my creation.

As you can seek the sketch shifted a bit over the course of my creating, but I did stay true to the colours used, I do like how they go together. This is my first inking up of my new Oh So Succulent stamp set, and I had fun playing around with which colours looked best.  I love these little succulents, as well as the framelits that they bundle with, I can't wait to show you the 3D one I made.  The sentiment is stamped with one of the great sentiments in Layering Love and cut using the Layering Ovals framelits.

I like adding some coordination to the inside of the card, and for this one I simply stamped one of the succulents in the corner. 

We have moved the challenge to Facebook, so if you would like to join in just follow the link above. If you are not yet a member, join the group to be added.  Each week we will be having  "most popular" card and a "crew choice" awards to give out.  Don't forget to add your picture to the album for this week to be in the running for one of the awards.

Next on the hop is Elizabeth, pop on over to see which project she was inspired by.

Happy Stamping


  1. Such a pretty interpretation of the catalogue pic. I like a fresh, clean look like this.

  2. Your card is so beautiful. You're right, those colours look fabulous together. You're tempting me to get the succulents.

  3. Such a pretty card Monique! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Oh what a lovely card. So nice!

  5. I like that you cased the colours from this card, I forget that you can do this and I also recognise the layout was inspired by the image as well. I like this large sentiment with the oval feature.

  6. Lovely card, Monique. It is a really nice colour combo.

  7. The colouring of the succulents is great. Thanks for sharing
