More Of What Makes You Happy CTC#17

Each week at CASE-ing The Catty we turn to our Stampin' Up! Catalogues for inspiration. We'd love it if you joined us in CASE-ing The Catty too!

This week we are seeking inspiration from the Occasions Catalogue, the Valentines pages. You can copy exactly, use a sketch or layout as an inspiration starter, or maybe a colour combination to create a card, scrapbook page or 3D item. Your card or project doesn't need to be a Valentine, just share in your write-up which sketch or colour combination inspired you.

Our challenges close at 5pm Thursday (AEDT)

  • Create a new project for the challenge
  • Mention CTC in your blog post and link back so others can join us
  • Mainly SUO products (retired or current) to be used for these challenges

For my card, I CASE-ed page 7 of the Occasions Catalogue and that crazy Wood You Be Mine?
picture at the top of the page. It has a hardwood background, totally suitable for a woodcutter, but I chose the gorgeous Happy Heart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder in Cherry Cobbler. I used the last of the Hello Life sentiments that I stamped at my Team Leader's, so now I have to decide whether to order Hello Life stamp set too. I certainly like this huge sentiment, and paired with the "you can never have too much happy" sentiment from Yippee-Skippee makes a perfect match.

I don't usually remember to use Washi Tape, but I buy enough of it, so very glad to remember to put some on here. I echoed the small banner at the bottom of the woodcutter card,with gold foil and instead of twine I went big and used  the lovely, soft (retired) Cherry Cobbler tulle.

On the inside of the card, I used a sheet of paper from the Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack, the Yippee-Skippee sentiment and a couple of Pictogram Punches hearts. There are hearts in the Hello Life stamp set, but since I don't own it...yet, I've had to improvise.

What inspires you from the Valentine section of the Occasions Catalogue? Will you share it with us in the CASE-ing the Catty Gallery?

Hope to see you there...
