Rose Wonder CTC#129

We are Case-ing our favourite project from the Annual Catalogue, which is really difficult, like picking which of your children is your favourite. You may have just arrived here from Kelly Kent, but if you are starting here, don't forget that blogs are full circle and you can check out what all the design team selected by pressing the next button at the end.

Rose Wonder is a beautiful stamp set with some wonderful sentiments and I CASE-d a card using this on page 133 of the almost retired catalogue, to make my version.

Stampin' Up!® Catalogue Sample

I was searching for something fun for my ladies to make at our next stamp class. It is often hard to decide on something which will challenge them without overwhelming and so I've made a plain sample of white on white, and then my attempt at CASE-ing the other catalogue sample.Again, I glued white to the base, and then I had fun with re-inkers and an Aqua Painter. Also used the speckles from Touches of Texture. I know I will be using Touches of Texture, and probably that particular splatter stamp a lot now that Gorgeous Grunge is retiring. Bonus is, there are some lovely flowers included in the Touches Of Texture stamp set.

I decided not to stress too much when I couldn't cleanly remove all the pieces from the die as it hadn't cut right through, I just went with what I had. Really, the problem was not using the Precision Base Plate which is suggested for more intricate dies.

If you get lost along the way or a link is broken you can get back on track here.

We always love to see what you are crafting too, so what is your favourite project from the Annual Catalogue? You can link to our Facebook site here if you'd like to share.

Now head on over to see what the talented Rebecca Scurr has made.

Happy Crafting, 


  1. WOW - your CASE is AWESOME! I LOVE the white on white, but the coloured one is totally wonderful too!! So so beautiful!!

  2. That Rose is gorgeous isn't it! And just perfect for weddings! Love your CASE Rachel !

  3. Lovely cards, Rachel. The white on white is just so elegant -love it!

  4. Both gorgeous Rachel. Two very different looks. I'm fascinated that you colour after adhering the cutout. I've never done it that way but it's a lovely effect. Will have to try that, thanks for the lesson. And I know what you mean about classes!
