Hello and welcome to your second stop (if you’re hopping along in order from Rachel’s post) on this week’s Case-ing the Catty Sunday Challenge crew blog hop. Once again we are Case-ing the Sale-A-Bration releases (now with three collections plus the coordinating products). I’m amazed at the creativity of this group and how even after several weeks SAB themed hops everyone is still coming up with gorgeous and inspiring creation.
This week I’ve double Cased two projects. One is from the first SAB brochure that uses the Gingham Gala paper and the Organdy Ribbon Pack (which sold out in the first month of SAB but if you’re super quick you can grab a pack now as they are available – while stocks last! – again). I was also inspired by this beautiful card that Anne Barker made for our team meeting last week (we always do a card swap). It uses the SAB stamp set Home To Roost and I just loved the black and white gingham (from the Butterfly Gala DSP – also a SAB freebie) with the pop of red.
I’ve combined the colours of Anne’s card with the layout of SU!’s to make this card.
I just love this black and white gingham, although it was hard to cut into the beautiful butterflies on the reverse side. But I think it goes so beautifully with Mr Rooster. I loved the wrapping of the ribbon as per the catty example, so I’ve done the same with some Real Red ribbon.
My colouring of the rooster was inspired by this handsome devil I photographed a couple of weeks ago (turns out I have a thing about chickens, but I won’t bore you with a bombardment of them). I love the brown and blue with the bright red comb. My stamped version has a Bermuda Bay tail because I really liked the contrast it provided.
And yes yes, I know, roosters do not lay eggs, but allow me some artistic licence for my photography, ok??!!
We love to see your Cased creations as well, so join in the challenge by posting your project to our Facebook wall via this link.
Next up is Shannon’s gorgeous picture of a card, hop along to her next and then keep hopping along to see the whole crew’s projects.
Thanks for stopping by,
