Favourite Occasions Big Shot Project CTC175

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.

You'll have probably realised by now that a Big Shot is an essential tool for paper crafting. In the time that I have been a demonstrator the number of dies and Textured Impressions Embossing folders has grown and grown. Petal Palette has been a stand out in the Occasions catalogue and with relief I can tell you that it will also be in the Annual Catalogue.

Essentially, I have CASE-d an entirely different Occasions sample, using the colour palette from the Hold On To Hope Bundle and transferring it to my Petal Palette project. Its the card on the top right of the title picture in Bermuda Bay and Lemon-Lime Twist.

I water coloured a piece of paper with Tranquil Tide and Lemon-Lime Twist and used it to back the negative space left after cutting a black sprig of foliage out of a card front. A bird has perched on it and the roses below are blooming beautifully.

This card is sentiment-free at present, but once I find a suitable recipient, I'll know what to add.
Next person to hop to is the talented Julia Quinn

Although we are based in the South Pacific, we welcome anyone to join us in CASE-ing the Catty with Stampin' Up! products. You don't have to be a demonstrator or even have a blog. You pin your CASE to our Facebook wall. Pages 36-43 of the Occasions Catalogue this week.
