CASE-ing Christmas - CTC82

Are you enjoying the new Stampin' Up!® catalogue? Have you ordered yet? I'm guilty on both counts and with all the lovely projects being shared I'm having to use a lot of self-control to hold off ordering yet again! This week at CASE-ing The Catty we are CASE-ing the Christmas section, pages 26 - 37. 

I decided to CASE the green card with another
Christmas card in Cherry Cobbler, and the centre card with the sentiment inside the partial circle with a fun birthday card.
 Everything for this card has had to be substituted, although I could have used Crushed Cucumber card. The Textured Impressions Embossing folder is Lucky Stars #135817, but  Sparkle #141468 would also work very well. The designers used some new Foil Acetate #141653 on page 175 of the catalogue which I probably wouldn't have noticed it if I wasn't CASE-ing the card and trying to find products. Instead, a banner cut from patterned vellum has filled the gap. Although I do have the Oh What Fun! stamp set, for some reason I couldn't find it when I wanted to. Christmas Messages is another retired stamp set I've kept, and it came in handy today. One of the Lots Of Labels Framelits provided a tag for the sentiment.
The birthday card features Affectionately Yours SDSP . I really like all the papers in this suite, and have happily cut into all the sheets. Watermelon Wonder was cut with the retired Starburst Framelits, which are still available on the clearance rack in my Online Store for $27.57. Might be worth adding them on to your order of new catty products. After embossing the larger flower with copper embossing powder onto Blushing Bride card, it is quite easy to hand-cut with snips. I've wound the new copper metallic thread six times around the top of the card and tied. If you are planning to shop with me, the current Hostess code is ZGGAABEE

Next up you are heading to Julia

We'd love you to join us, CASE the Birthday section (pages10-25) and link it at CASE-ing The Catty. We're looking for a couple of new memebers for the Crew, it might just be you.

Cheers, Rachel


  1. Great CASEING of the catty. I love the way this blog makes us look at the catalogue in much more depth! I hardly noticed these cards at all before! And look how great they look with your colours!

  2. terrific use of the layouts and great way to show the lovely new Affectionately Yours DSP. Nice bright projects Rachel.

  3. Rachel, you have really displayed that the designer series paper work for all occasions. The dsp just make the sentiments pop.

  4. Isn't it frustrating when you can't find a stamp set or embellishment when you need it! I love your CASEs taking two from the same image was a great idea.

  5. Rachel, I love your version, especially how you have used two themes Christmas and Birthday, certainly gives me some inspiration to improvise, that you can make do with what you have on hand. TFS
