As I turn the pages of a new Stampin' Up!® catalogue, my eyes are now tuned in to look out for designs to CASE. I have done this for a few years, jotting down page numbers in a notebook, and referring back to them when I run out of inspiration. This year I began the list while I was still away on the Gold Coast, attending the 2015 South Pacific Stampin' Up® Convention.
The sketch that really jumped out at me is on Page 46 and uses Pictogram Punches, which was already on my shelf from last year. I've used this stamp set a lot already, and look forward to another year of fun with it, now that it is definitely in the catalogue again. You might wonder about the pink dot beside the stamps name. When I get my new catalogue, it is time for stocktake in my craft room. I mark the catalogue in some way (this year, pink dots) to show stamps, dies, punches etc that I already own to avoid doubling up.
I decided to make my card for a new baby boy, and chose some paper from the retired paper stack, Winter Frost. I think it is in the now-retired Coastal Cabana but with Silver Fancy Foil Vellum over the top, it looks very close to Pool Party. I used a white doiley (or two!) some retired Pool Party satin ribbon, white Baker's Twine and White Jute Ribbon and layered them all. I fancy that it has a soft fluffy look, much like a baby's blanket.
I love the vase and flowers included in this stamp set, you can see a Mother's Day card here.
