CTC #221 Needlepoint Nook

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. This week the design team are focusing on pages 38-41 of the Occasions Catalogue, from which you can order 3rd January - 3rd June 2019.

Although I have used Needlepoint Nook paper here, and the embroidered flower stamps, I cased the design above left, and just moved the sentiment band to different positions. The sentiment is from Incredible Like You, a stamp set which matches with one of the most beautiful kits I have ever seen.

When I stamp flowers, I always stamp a few extra and put them in little plastic tubs ready to use on other cards. Sometimes I cheat just a little too, and slice a flower in half to use each side of a sentiment strip, like I did above. Do you like the navy version or the black and red one best?

This black and white check paper is from the Botanical Butterflies DSP, a SALE-A-Bration freebie with your $90 order. Pretty good deal getting a $19.25 pack of paper for free, don't you think?

What will you CASE from pages 38-41 of the Occasions Catalogue? Make sure you share it here on our Facebook page.

And now its time to pop over to my dear friend Julia Quinn, her project is bound to inspire.

You can shop for supplies if you live in Australia, and use the Host Code for your order under $250 and I will share the benefits with you. Remember that shopping until the end of March earns you a SALE-A-Bration reward for each $90, you will be asked to select that if you qualify before completing your order. Click on any of the following products and it will take you to that item in my store.
