CASE-ing The Flowers CTC#272

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, create Craft By Post classes, coach my lovely team and create cards and the occasional 3D project. This week we are CASE-ing flowers from the new Annual catalogue.

Mid-week when I do my creating for the blog, my order was still sitting in Sydney, so I decided to CASE the Catty by using the picture on page 21 of the 2020-2021 Annual catalogue to inspire me. I even thought to grab the daisy, but it becomes more original once you change up the stamp set, and I do love Painted Poppies. See those cheeky daisies leaning over in the background? They were my main point of inspiration.

Flowers For Every Season DSP has such vibrant colours and patterns, and initially I was using the other side of this sheet which has a Bumblebee pattern resembing poppies, but the bright, zany stripes won in the end.

We have a very small selection of twine in this year's offering, but the tried and true Linen Thread is still available, and it has been included on the inside of my card.

 The amazing Rebecca Scurr follows me this week, let's pop over and see her creation.

There is always so much inspiration in these catalogues, I'm sure that is why CASE-ing the Catty is so successful! Now it's your turn to show what you can do with a little catalogue inspiration. Add your work at our Facebook challenge here.
