Your Friendship CTC#233

Welcome back to another week of CASE-ing The Catty. The crew is made up of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all parts of Australia and New Zealand.You are at the blog of Rachel Palmieri, Independent Stampin' Up!® demonstrator. I run classes at my home studio in South Morang, Victoria, share Stampin' Up!® products and tools at parties for my customers, coach my lovely team and create cards and the occasional 3D project. This week we are CASEing a layout from page 36, and there are plenty of choices there to inspire!

Of course, page 36 features the very popular Magnolia Lane Suite, including Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and I do not own it at this stage, which is a good thing as it means I need to substitute another stamp. Free As A Bird ended up being my choice, used to CASE the striped card on the right of page.

The original card has 2 layers of designer series paper with vellum in between, and so my first decision was which paper to choose. Initially I was going to use a different one, but really, the front and reverse of the same piece is a logical way to go. Since I'd chosen the floral bunches, I used just the flowers on my label, which echoes the shape on the card I CASE-d.

Again, as I don't have the Magnolia Lane bundle, I pulled Seasonal Layers dies from my drawer to cut the bottom of these papers. I've been away visiting my grandchildren this weekend, so I rushed to finish and now I need to go finish the inside off.

Join in and CASE from page 36, then ask to join our challenge.

You can keep on hopping, and see  Michelle's project, let me just hint, it is a great card featuring yachts.

June Customer Thank You Cards

I've made a bunch of these as 'Thank You ' cards for my June customers. I won't write in them so you can use them yourself.
Daisy Lane is the stamp set, and Woven Threads is the designer series paper.

As an extra bonus, if you purchase the Daisy Lane stamp set(#149325 - $40 or the bundle which includes a medium Daisy Punch # 151118 - $61.00) during June, I will email a PDF with projects using this set, designed by Australian demonstrators including me. One lucky customer will also receive this card (below), ready to use yourself.

Parcels & Petals

Parcels and Petals was still on my craft table when I had some more me-time today, and I'd enjoyed the challenges so much yesterday, I came up with another card, which is quite different.

The Stamparatus, our stamp positioning tool,  is very handy for a card like this, as the hinges allow you to move the plate down a step, or in the case of this stamp, two steps, for even stamping.

Freshly Made Sketches gave me the layout for the card. The arrangement of strips has been altered and an extra one added in, but I moved the panel toward the right of the card like in the layout. The colours are from The Paper Players challenge, and it was an extra challenge to try brayering the colour on, as I haven't done that much before. I'll do it more now I think.
