Urban Underground, pages 46-49 is the section of the Occasions Catalogue we are CASE-ing this week at CTC. Sometimes it is a real challenge to get inspiration and at these times it is great to have a Stampin' Up!® catalogue to refer to. It doesn't have to be the same stamp set, or even the same colours.
For my card today I've used the layout of the card featuring the large 'DAD' on the front. I've replaced the stamp set featured here with Carousel Birthday and Balloon Adventure, which are both in the Occasions Catalogue. Imitating the design, there are three images stamped across the central panel (tents from Carousel Birthday).
I've used scraps of the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP along with another scrap of Flirty Flamingo, which was sprayed with Melon Mambo re-inker in alcohol, before being rolled through the Big Shot in that amazing folder, Hexagons Dynamic TIEF. It has a very dramatic 3-D effect which is hard to pick up from photos.
Perhaps you can see the texture better in this shot, side on. A sentiment from Balloon Adventure has been added at the far right. I couldn't resist adding some balloons and some Enamel Shape embellishments. They match the colours of the inks and papers so it is easy to pick which to add. You'll also get a glimpse of the inside of the card finished with Whisper White, another strip of DSP and a stamped balloon from Balloon Adventures.
Another view of the inside shows the second sentiment from Balloon Adventures, along with a stamped balloon.
