Hello and welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!  We are glad you have joined us and look forward to spending time with you as we share inspiration with you from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog by switching things up a bit thus our theme of CAS(e) the Mini Switcharoo.  So sit back and enjoy your favorite cuppa as you enjoy your trip Around the World on Wednesday!

Today's Project

With the CAS(e) the Mini Switcharoo we each picked something to CAS(e) - Copy And Selectively (E)dit - from the new 2022 mini catalog; however, we could not use the same colors or products.  Two of us did select projects created by one of the Stampin' Up! Concept Artists who won the Master Stamper contest during OnStage@Home in November so these two team members could use the same products and/or colors with their projects.  I cannot wait to see how everyone interpreted this fun challenge!  

Here is what I chose to create by selecting a project on page 18 of the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog.

Project Details

I could not resist using the Driving By Sale-a-Bration Cling Stamp Set for this fun challenge as this adorable VW Bug (yes, I love "Herbie the Love Bug" plus a dear family friend from my childhood had a yellow one) was perfect for coordinating with the new Hello Ladybug Stamp Set.

The Hello Ladybug flower cluster was stamped repeatedly with Real Red ink along the outside edge of the Real Red cardstock layer.  The ladybug wings were stamped with Daffodil Delight ink onto 1/2" x 4" strips  of Basic White cardstock scraps (perfect size for two sets of wings) and punched with the coordinating Ladybug Punch.  The wings were attached to a 2-3/4" x 4" piece of Basic White cardstock with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  Basic White cardstock scraps were used to even up the layer.  TIP:  Stamp the wings in opposite directions matching the direction of the punch....  stamped it on the wrong side?  No worries... just flip it over and stamp again correctly.

The daisies were stamped with Memento and Gorgeous Grape inks and the center with Daffodil Delight on Basic White cardstock scraps.  The VW Bugs were stamped with Memento and colored with Stampin' Blends Markers,  The fussy cut daisies were adhered with liquid glue and the fussy cut VW Bugs were adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.  TIP:  Stamp the car top along the edge(s) of your cardstock unless you want to fussy cut the packages, too, for another project.  Stamp the daisies on your Stamparatus foam mat or your piercing mat for a solid, full coverage image.

The Hello Ladybug sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink onto a 1/2" strip of Gorgeous Grape cardstock and heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.and layered with slightly larger Basic White cardstock layer.  The sentiment layer was adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The inside layers were replicated to compliment card front leaving plenty of room to write a quick note to a special recipient.  The envelope front and flap was stamped with cluster flowers used for background layers.
