CASE-ing the Catty | CTC #469 | Case the Mix & Match Section

  Hello there stamping friends! Welcome and thanks for joining me on my blog today. Today I'm participating in a blog hop for CASE-ing the Catty, to kick off the new challenge for the week.

 To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit. And this week we are CASE-ing from the new Mix and Match Section in the Stampin' Up! 2024 - 2025  Annual Catalogue. Found on Pgs. 18 - 21.

 The Mix & Match Envelopes & Ephemera give you a quick and easy option for crafting that gives you a personalised creative experience as opposed to a kit where you follow step-by-step instructions that guide you though the crafting process.

Today I've used the Basic Gray card in the middle above as the basis for my CASE-d card but used the Country Woods Suite for my card as opposed to using the Mix & Match Envelopes & Ephemera. I really loved the layout of the card and CASE-d that for my card, keeping the bones of the design.

I've started with a Basic White card base and layered Basic White on that embossed with the beautiful Eyelet 3D Embossing folder. I've turned my piece of cardstock over so the embossing looks indented into the cardstock. I only did this because I added some blending of ink on the other side and did't like it but didn't want to waste the cardstock so I turned it over. Waste not want not right? Ha! Looks good either which way you have the embossing.

I've kept the banner piece like the original but this is where things are changed up. I've layered a circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies under the banner and over top added some stips of Country Lace DSP and the leaves and flowers from the Country Flowers Bundle.

I've used Stampin' Blends to colour the flowers and also added some smaller flowers from the Country Birdhouse stamp set to the floral cluster.

Stampin' Blends Used
Flowers - Light Peach Pie, Light and Dark Petal Pink, Light Summer Splash, Light and Dark Pool Party, Light and Dark Boho Blue, Light Balmy Blue
Leaves - Light and Dark Gray Granite

 I've finished the card off with some Mossy Meadow leaves, Linen Thread, some Basic Gray Pearls, and the Happy Birthday Sentiment. 

I really love how you can use a card as a basis for your card and it ends up with a completely different look. The beauty of CASE-ing really!

There are lots of AMAZING creations from the rest of the CASE-ing the Catty Crew so be sure to make your way around the whole hop to get inspiration from the CTC team.
