Hello friends, I hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend as we celebrate a long weekend here in Melbourne for the King’s birthday. I’ll take any holiday I get! For today’s CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge CTC 473 we are CASEing a project which features a bundle from Pages 57-73 of the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue.

To CASE means to Copy and Selectively Edit a project which means you can copy the project as is or be inspired by elements of the project to make it your own. Each week the CASEing the Catty Crew share inspiration through our blog hop and then through the week you can submit your project to our FB group.

I’m CASEing this project from Page 62 of the Catalogue which uses the Pocket Thoughts Bundle.

I’ve copied the layout and the repeated pattern on my card by die cutting the Perennial Postage die from Basic White Cardstock. On these I stamped the plants from the Attention Shoppers stamp set and coloured them with Stampin’ Blends.

I then masked the plant with some Masking Paper and blended Pool Party ink around the plants, followed by stamping of the Drizzling Droplets background stamp. This technique is a CASE of the card as well where the sentiment has been masked, although I didn’t realise this until after.

For the sentiment I wanted to bring in a pop of Melon Mambo but the Cardstock was a lighter shade to the DSP strip I had added at the bottom of the card. So I coloured the Cardstock strip with the Dark Melon Mambo Stampin’ Blend, heat embossing the sentiment in White on top of it. This coordinated much better.

A bit of Linen Thread in Copper clay was added under the sentiment to tie in with the centre stripe on the pots. This is a part of the Natural Tones Linen Thread which is not in our range as yet and is a sneak peek of some upcoming product – yeah coloured Linen Thread!

We really couldn’t have timed this challenge any better because until the 30th of June we have a sale on our stamp and die bundles. Products that are bundled are generally discounted by 10% however until 30th June you can get an extra 10% off the bundled price. During this sale you can also get 10% off any Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine helping you use those dies.
