Welcome to the first Around the World on Wednesday hop for 2022. I'm delighted to be part of this international team that hops on the second Wednesday of every month with a theme to inspire you. We're 'around the world' because we have people from every country that Stampin' Up! operates in.
This time, our theme is 'Switch the Mini Switcharoo'. The January-June 2022 Mini Catalogue is our inspiration. Our mission was to choose a sample from the catalogue and then switch it up: make it using different sets, colours, or even techniques.
The catalogue is always a great source of inspiration - great layouts, interesting colour combinations and use of various techniques. If ever you're stuck for inspiration, it's always worth a look through for an idea.
I liked the layout of this card on page 22 which uses the Crane of Fortune bundle.
I used the layout to create this card with the Ranunculus Romance bundle.
I've switched out the stamped and die cut crane for a stamped and die cut ranunculus, coloured in Flirty Flamingo and Soft Succulent. I've used foliage from the Ranunculus dies.
Instead of the DSP background, I've used a plain white, embossed with the new Hive 3D Embossing Folder.
I've used some of the Simple Marbleous DSP, free with a purchase of $110 or more during Sale-a-bration to create the floating background for the flower.
I've switched the base and sentiment for another neutral, Basic Gray, and cut the sentiment with a Stitched Rectangle die.
Next up is the ever wonderful Leonie Stuart in Australia. I wonder what she's switched up for us?
If you get lost along the hop, here's a linked list of participants.
