Well, here we are, another Sunday and another Caseing the Catty challenge. I’ve made it again this week after a few weeks off, yet again. These coming weeks/months I may be a bit hit & miss with my creations and sharing them with you as I’m dealing with a lot of family things in the background which isn’t giving me a lot of time to create. Between flying back and forth interstate, to keeping things going at home, something had to give. I will join in as much as I can and look forward to sharing more projects with you.
This week we are casing a project from either catalogue which uses an Embossing folder. I love how embossing folders give such a great effect to a card with minimal effort. I decided to case the little piggy Oh Happy Day card that is at the bottom middle of the image below which uses the Rain or Shine Suite. I hadn’t used this suite yet so thought I’d stay with the same suite for my card.
I started with a Balmy Blue card base and then cut another card front in Balmy Blue which I ran through the Raindrops Embossing Folder to create this lovely rainy background. I then cut out one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies for my central panel and stamped the bunny jumping in the puddle. I then also stamped the turtle, flowers and clouds from the Playing in the Rain stamp set onto scrap white cardstock and then coloured all of the images in with Blends™. Don’t you just love when there are coordinating dies? I used the Playing in the Rain Dies to cut out the various images so that I could layer them with Dimensionals™ to give some extra depth.
For the sentiment, I ended up using one from the Sending Support stamp set that you may have just picked up as a freebie in the recent Sale-a-bration promotion. I thought it was perfect for this card, making this card just right for anyone going through a tough time to let them know that you are there for them.
Next up is Peta with her lovely floral card which features an embossing folder. Keep hopping around to see what all of the design team came up with this week.
Do you love embossing folders? Which is your favourite? Why not create a card this week using one and share a picture of your creation on our Facebook page? We’d love to see it.
Until next time, happy stamping
Love it! Such a great rainy embossing folder. It gives a great subtle effect.
