CTC#262 Week 2

Welcome back to week 2 of CASE-ing The Catty, case-ing the sketch from page 34 of the mini catalogue. The CASE-ing The Catty 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, create Craft By Post classes, coach my lovely team and create cards and the occasional 3D project. 

I really like this sketch and had intended participating last week until I found out my husband had arranged a coastal mini-break to celebrate my retirement. That didn't leave me any time for creating or blogging, but was a really nice way to celebrate this new stage of life.

Best Dressed designer series paper is cut just a little wider than the Painted Labels die, cut 3 times in thick Whisper White and the big swirly die from the same set has been cut from black card. 

Glittered Organdy ribbon in black adds a touch of glamour, you'll find that in the annual catalogue. Bloom & Grow was a favourite of mine after the Annual catalogue was released in June, but it has been gathering dust while new favourites arrived to take it's place. It was good to dust it off and colour the flowers for this card, which no doubt will find its way to someone soon.

There is always so much inspiration in these catalogues, Now it's your turn to show what you can do with a little catalogue inspiration. Add your work at our Facebook challenge here.

Next you will have to check out my friend Judy May's project
