CASE-ing the Catty #32 - Sneak Peek Week - Sprinkles of Life!

There are not many sleeps until the 2015-16 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue goes live & we can all order some of the stamps, inks & supplies that fill our wishlists, woohoo!  :)

So this week the Crew at CASE-ing the Catty are CASE-ing from the new catty & showcasing some of the fabulous products that will be available.  You can hop your way around all the blogs to see some beautiful sneak peeks.  We have added some new members to the CTC Crew, so now there are even more projects to inspire you.

How amazing was Alison's project?  :)  At the end of this post you will find a link to hop to the next blog.  You can also find a full list of participating blogs on the CASE-ing the Catty blog (here).

One of my favourite products this year is the Ronald McDonald House Charities set called Sprinkles of Life, it is totally adorable & gives stampers so many options.  I have gone with a cupcake:-


If you have a new catalogue already, you will find this set & the tag that inspired my card on the inside back cover.  

As well as the stamp set, I have used some DSP from the new 6 x 6 inch paper stack called Cherry On Top & a 2015-17 InColor cardstock called Tip Top Taupe.  I have also used two new punches -  the Tree Builder (to punch out the cupcake frosting) & the awesome Banner Triple punch (to create the fishtail ends on the sentiment banner).  ♥ it!

One of best things about having new products is that they inspire you to have another look at items you already have in your stash, & this sentiment from Remembering Your Birthday worked beautifully with this new imagery:-


You can't really see it in the photos, but I added some teeny tiny pink flowers to the cupcake wrapper.  I coloured the candles with ink & a blender pen, then clear embossed them to make them look waxy.  I made some slits in the icing to tuck in the candles & added some sprinkles to the frosting.  Yum!  :)

Love that you have added this to a card and I am thinking this is my favourite stamp set in the catalogue and it's so great that the money goes to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Helen, this is so beautiful! There's something about a luxurious satin bow that makes a card even more special. I really do love that about your card. This stamp set is so fabulous and I love that you made an elegant subtle card with it. :)

Lovely, lovely pink cupcake. Perfect with that sentiment, and so pretty in those soft shades.

The colors you've used are both subtle and stunning, resulting in an elegant card.

Thanks for sharing your inspiring card.

Such a soft & pretty card Helen. Everything I have seen with this set has been bright, but your soft subtle interpretation is so pretty. I love the little cut outs for the candles, so clever!
