CTC 170: Stampin’ Up!’s Hanging Garden

Published by under cards | Mar 18 2018

Hanging Garden card from www.simonebartrum.com. Products from Stampin' Up!. Welcome to the CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop! This week I’m using the Hanging Garden stamp set.

CTC 170 Caseing the Catty Blog Hop

The CTC Crew are turning to pages 28-35 of the Occasions Catalogue for inspiration. We can use the layout, the colours, the stamps, or any other element as the basis for making another card.

I was drawn to this card on the bottom left corner of page 28 and chose to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) it this week.

I used both the layout and the ‘trio’ theme as inspiration, but instead of 3 containers of fruit I used 3 hanging baskets from the aptly named stamp set Hanging Garden.

Both cards use the Sale-a-bration Tutti Frutti Cards & Envelopes as the base, and coloured hanging baskets.

Some coordinating cardstock and ribbons finish these quick and easy cards. This is a great go-to layout, and is the perfect way to display the hanging baskets.

You can see the full list of products used to create both cards by scrolling down to the bottom of this post. Remember Sale-a-bration is still on, so it’s a great time to add a few extra stamp sets to your collection and get a free gift too.

My baskets and flowers were coloured with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers, but would also look great using watercolour pencils, markers or ink. Remember, when colouring with alcohol markers you’ll need to stamp the image in Memento ink to keep the stamped lines sharp. If you are interested in gathering the full set of Blends over four months, then check out my popular Blends Club here.

This is such a fun stamp set! I loved colouring in those pretty hanging baskets and will definitely be colouring some more.
