Many Happy Tomorrows CTC#242

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 we are CASE-ing Woven Threads colours, and layouts from pages 12-14.

Last week I covered a notebook using this paper, but still decided it was the perfect way to go again for this challenge. After all, what easier way to use the colours of Woven Threads DSP, than by using the paper? The inspiration for both my card and box originated from 3 of these boxes, each wrapped in a different strip of DSP, stacked and tied with a variety of ribbons and trims. 

Still channelling the patchworker within, we have strips on the card, repeated (not quite the same order) on the box. I haven't been as lavish with the various ribbons, but the mini Braided Linen Trim suits the washed-out hues of Woven Threads DSP.

Colorful Seasons stamps & Seasonal Layers dies were still on my table from my mid-week project for Colour INKspirations so I used flowers and a large sentiment from this combo, along with a label and sentiment from Parcels & Petals for the box.

Seaside Spray may be a little too light to use as an ink for stamping sentiments perhaps. More braided linen trim made it onto the inside of the card above a strip of DSP.

Now you are heading to my friend (and sometime travel-buddy) Tina in South Australia. Her card in a single colour is a beauty!

We would love you to CASE from pages 12-14 and share it here on our Facebook page,

16 August - 16 July
