It's a New Catalogue! CTC 181

 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.

Two of my daughter-in-laws have birthdays early in June, so it seemed sensible to make variations of cards, using the same stamp for the girls. Mary Fish's Various Vases stamp set and punch was not immediately on my wish list, even though I love my garden, and picking vases of flowers for the house. It didn't take long for me to change my mind though, and now I seem to be using it so much!

I CASE-d the card from page 13 of the catty with minor changes. The tulip is probably my least favourite flower so I left it out. Love the other flowers though, and think the one far left is like a mini  version of Love What You Do.

It's always nice to add a little more to the inside, so there are stamped flowers and sentiment, accompanied by a punched vase. Of course, it's nice to stamp the envelope too.

Mint Macaron is always a colour I associate with this D-I-L, she seems to really favour it. I allowed my creativity run away with this card, so it ended up not being a CASE of anything!

That's a positive effect of CASE-ing The Catty I think, you begin with almost a straight out CASE for the first card, and something totally original for the next.

Another stamped envelope for this birthday card, the finishing touch. I hope you have a copy of the new catalogue, because it is your turn to CASE anything in the new catalogue and join our Facebook Challenge page.

Time for you to head off to check out lovely, talented Rose Packer's project or you might like to go back to see what Liz has created.

If you're placing your order for items from the Annual Catalogue, you may add the host code to your order (if its less than $250) to receive a gift from me.
