A World Of Thanks-CTC83

Catalogue image page 42
I'm back again with CASE-ing The Catty and this week we are checking out pages 38-43 of the catalogue, and we're saying thank you. The card I've CASE-d (copied and shared everything) is not a new stamp, and I have already used it a lot. However, it is always fun to see a new idea to inspire. I decided to ink up A World Of Thanks with the Bermuda Bay Ombre Stampin' Pad (page 180). Flourish Thinlet Dies have been having a workout through my Big Shot today. I made a bunch of cards with all different Flourish pieces along with sheet music DSP, for a special customer order. There is a lovely ornate detail to these dies, and the paper releases from the dies quite easily with the help of the die brush. The die brush is a 'must have' if you are keen on using dies like these, or Swirly Scribbles thinlets.

After placing the strip from Flourish Thinlet Dies across in place of washi tape, I tried a number of the flowers and leaves I'd cut earlier, but decided this one looked best. When I cut extras of thinlets, I keep them in a spare stamp case. You can find three sizes of these on page 183 of your catalogue, which reminds me, I need to add one of each size to my next order too.(You get four cases at a time). The other thing that these are very useful for, is keeping partly finished cards all together, or even for taking supplies away for a crafty weekend, they pack so neatly!

A twist of gold metallic thread is secured under the banner, which has a 'thanks' from Cottage Greetings. There are some Bermuda Bay sequins scattered over the card to finish it off. Thank you for reading my blog post and I hope I see you again next week.

Next you'll be visiting Julia Quinn who always has a lovely project to share

  We'd love you to join in the challenge to CASE a card from the birthday section of the catalogue and link your blog post to our page here. You don't have to make a birthday card, unless you really want to, just CASE a project you see on pages 10-25. Change up the colours, use different stamps anything goes. We are looking for some new designers for the CASE-ing The Catty crew, so if you're an Australian or New Zealander Stampin' Up!® demonstrator, this might be fun for you.

Cheers, Rachel


  1. I love your card and I really love your tip about using the stamp cases for unfinished projects and packing projects in to go away. Clever clever you! Thankyou so much for your amazing inspiration!

  2. Rachel, I love those colours, it just stands out so much more than the catty sample and those thinlit dies finish it off so nicely.

  3. Great storage tip Rachel - not sure I could buy enough cases for my unfinished cards or ideas in progress cards!!!!! Glad youCASEd this card, I love the stamp and the thinlits do look great. How do you like the ombre pads?

  4. Lovely card Rachel. I like that you've used the Bermuda Bay Ombre stamp pad for the background, nice touch!

  5. This card looks great in your thank you version Rachel! And so cool to see the ombre ink pad in action! Kelly x
