Wishing... CTC174

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.

CASE-ing Hostess sets and Memories and more this week. I've been really busy this week planning a fundraiser for May and recovering from a painful back that may or may not have occurred in Sydney so I hope you don't think I'm too lazy picking up another of the previously water coloured images of the well from Bright Wishes and CASE-d the Cozy Cottage card. 

I actually CASE-d it so closely, it's probably fortunate I did use a different image! There's the Crumb Cake card, the water coloured art piece, label with sentiment, linen twine bow.

As for differences, I used a strip of paint chip DSP (which is somewhat lost as its mostly covered) and had to add the lacy piece from Petals & more Thinlits dies. Surprisingly, the sentiment fitted on its matching banner label. I couldn't find my True Gentleman buttons (they're carrying over, but the stamp isn't) so I placed a couple of die cut leaves under the double bow.

 Because we lost the paint sample effect behind the main art piece, I've added a strip down the inside, #loveitchopit. The race is on to use retiring paper before I stock up on new loveliness!!!

You know how we love you to join our challenges? Well, what are you going to share this week? You just need to tap the icon, head over to our page and pin your pic on the wall.

  1. Brilliant colouring - this is a gorgeous image and layout for an art piece. I love the linen thread detail. And I hope your back improves quickly for you.

  2. I just love your colouring on this set, Rachel. Amazing job for such a great stamp set.

  3. Beautiful card Rachel and your colouring is fabulous. I love the paint sample effect on the inside of the card.

  4. Great having those bits lying around for days when you need a bit of help. Love what you've achieved and hoping for a speedy recovery for you.

  5. Hope you start feeling better soon. I love your CASE this week, the little details, like the twine, are so beautiful and work really well.

  6. What beautiful colouring! So much detail. Hope your back is feeling better.
