Memories Of Christmas Gleaming CTC#247

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 asking you to CASE a Holiday Catalogue Punch project. I did use the pair of bauble punches, but kept it simple.

I really like that Stampin' Up! has included 2 stamp sets which can be used with these punches, in this Holiday catalogue, but at this stage I only have the Christmas Gleaming stamp, which you can purchase as a bundle with the 2 punches at a 10% saving. The alternative co-ordinating stamp set, Memories Of Home, can be found on page 33 of the Holiday Catalogue. 

The artists did a great job using the christmas tree to stamp all over the background of the card. I did a small amount of stamping on the corners of the card front and the inside of the card and mainly relied on a piece of neutral DSP from Come To Gather DSP. Although this paper is for Thanksgiving and Autumn, it has good colours and reverse sides for other events. With the buy three packs, get the 4th free offer for September, it's a good time to buy some new DSP, just to ring the changes.
Soft pastels seem to suit this gentle background, and Stampin' Blends give a great result, once you've practised with them. Remember to imagine light is falling, I always seem to choose top left. You may be able to see that I've used a lighter hand with colour there and into the centre. I also applied Wink Of Stella, but it has proven difficult to capture in photographs.


I'd love you to choose my online shop to purchase from, and use the Host Code when asked at check out, and I will send you a gift, along with a handmade card. The items listed below were used in my card above, and link to that item in my online shop.

You may have arrived from the lovely Rose Packer, but if you started here you can progress to the talented Sandra and go right around the hop till you reach Rose.

We also invite you to CASE a punched project and share it on our Facebook Challenge.
