Stampin' Cat CTC143 Lovely as a Tree

Hello everyone and welcome to another CASEing the Catty Crew Blog Hop.  We are a group of demonstrators who love to take our inspiration from the amazing Stampin’ Up! Catalogues.  Each week we choose a different section of the Catalogue to CASE.  It really makes you look at your catalogue, I mean really look at it.

Last week I shared a picture of the bushfire that had me pack up and leave my house.  My wonderful friend Megan commented that I didn’t show you a picture of my car all packed up.  So here it is.

Bushfire car packed

A girl’s gotta get her priorities right.  Big shot, packed.  Stampin’ Trimmer, packed.  Holiday Catalogue Pre-order, packed.  Pro Hart painting, no room to pack that lol.  Of course Marvi, my feline assistant, was the last thing to go in the car before the police told me to leave.

Anyway…………this week we are CASEing the Artistic Expression section of the catalogue pages 132-181.


I’ve chosen to CASE the card on page 137.

Annual Catalogue page 137

I’ve made two versions of this card.  One using my favourite Wood Textures DSP.

The other version using some new products from the 2017 Holiday catalogue.

Both cards have been stamped with a beautiful tree from Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set.  I’ve heat embossed both of the trees, one in white and one in gold.  The sentiment is from Butterfly Basics.

The new 2017 Holiday Catalogue is live on the 1st of September.  That’s only 5 more sleeps.   Contact me if you’d like a copy.   If Marvi hasn’t eaten them all I’ll post one out.
