Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge Caseing the Catty.
To CASE means to Copy And Selectively Edit or to Copy And Share Everything!!
We use our inspiration filled Stampin' Up! catalogues to jump start our creative ideas each week for our challenge.
To kick start our NEW Stampin' Up! catalogue, we are CASEING from the Artistic Expressions Catalogue - the biggest chapter of all!! There are so many amazing projects featured on these 53 pages, that there seems to be endless inspiration!!
Eventually, I decided on this great little teaching box on page 130 to use as my inspiration.
I just love that our Catalogues not only show us amazing products and stunning ideas, but there are lots of little gems in the pages showing great techniques - including this one featuring heat embossing.
My card is very simple - gold embossing on the edges with an embellished greeting using the Story Label punch (cut in half) under the greeting. I'm featuring our new In-colour Pretty Peacock as well as the lovely gold foil.
We learnt this card at one of my recent classes and everyone loved the stunning simplicity of the gold.
Inside the card features more leafy images and another greeting from the Bloom And Grow stamp set.
My simple card became the inspiration for a lovely card for my gorgeous friends celebrating a fabulous milestone!! I've used the (now retired) numbers framelits and the (also retired) Banners for You stamp set. The finishing touch is the gold embossed envelope!!
I hope you've been totally inspired!! Up next is Rebecca's pretty green card!!.
We would love for you to join in the fun with us too!! Grab that new catalogue, and check out the Artistic Expressions chapter and be inspired!! Then share your creativity with us too!! It's super easy to add your project to our facebook challenge page. You don't even need to have a blog!!!
Please head over to my online store if you wish to see these products in more detail - and you can place your order anytime (if you're in Australia) while you're there (even if you're in your pyjamas!!)
