March 2016 Hop Button ResizedThanks for hopping over from Di’s blog – this month we are ‘CASEing’ the Catty.  CASE is an acronym for Copy And Share Everything, and I chose the Number of Years sample at the bottom of page 10 of the Occasions Mini catalog as my inspiration.

Actually, we worked with this set in my monthly Technique class this past week when we were studying dry-embossed ribbon.  Here’s my favorite card from the class: 3-1-16We started with an 11 x 4 1/4″ card base of Whisper White thick cardstock and layered it with the pink striped DSP from the Birthday Bouquet pack.  The top layer is regular Whisper White that measures 3 5/8 x 4″.  Using the Number of Years Photopolymer set, we stamped the leaves twice in Old Olive and accented them with Blushing Bride, Rose Red, So Saffron and Pool Party flowers from the same set.  The ‘Happy’, ‘th’, and {again} were all stamped in Pool Party, and the 29 was stamped in Crumb Cake on Whisper White cardstock.  The banners and numbers were die cut using the coordinating Large Numbers Framelits die set.  The numbers and banners were popped up with Dimensionals, and the card was accented with some (retired) Old Olive satin ribbon, Blushing Bride flowers punched with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, a bit of a Paper Doily, and some Pearls.

I love that the Number of Years set is so versatile and can be used for birthdays, anniversaries, milestones in school years to name a few.  I’m also crazy about the font used in the set – so sweet!  The stamp set and coordinating Large Numbers Framelit dies come as a bundle as well and will bring you to within 75 cents of a Sale-A-Bration award!  Doesn’t get much better than that…

Thank you so much for stopping by today – now it’s time to send you off to see what Kathya has worked with.
