CASE-ing the Catty | CTC#473 | Case a Bundle Pgs. 57 - 73

 Hello there stamping friends! Thank you for joining me on my blog today. Today I'm participating in a blog hop for the CASE-ing the Catty Design Team, to kick off the new challenge for the week. If you've come here from Julia Quinn's blog welcome, if you've started here with me also welcome.

We are about CASE-ing the samples from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue with a different theme to CASE each week. To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit. This week we are CASE-ing the Bundles found on Pgs. 57 - 73 of the 2024 - 2025 Annual Catalogue

My cards today are a combination of 3 different samples in the catalogue. I've taken inspiration from the square card and the landscape card above that use the Layers of Beauty Bundle.

I've also taken inspiration from the square card sample above that uses the Hearts & Hugs bundle. Put the elements from those three cards together and you get my cards for today's blog hop.

I've used the Layer's of Beauty Bundle for my 3 cards. I love that this bundle has stamps, dies and decorative masks that when all used together make beautiful creations. I've only used the stamps and decorative masks today for my cards.
I've used the decorative masks to colour in the floral image. I love colouring on Crumb Cake cardstock and I love how the Stampin' Up! Ink colours look so different when used on Crumb Cake Cardstock.
On all three cards I only used one colour of ink.  As I added each layer with the masks the inks grew darker thus creating the layers of shading. Some inks give a better effect than others.

 Each card has been layered with Crumb Cake Cardstock, Country Lace DSP and Basic Black Cardstock. I've used the Faux Stitching technique on them all by piercing holes in a line and then ruling over them using a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. This then looks like you've added stitching but with about half the effort. Also with the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker I've flicked some black ink splatters. 

I've finished each card off with Black & Very Vanilla Large Check ribbon, White Baker's Twine, Embossed Happy Birthday Sentiment and some Opal Rounds.

I hope that I've inspired you with my take on CASE-ing the Bundles from the Annual Catalogue. Try an see how you can incorporate the samples in the catalogue into your projects. You'll be surprised at what you may be inspired by!

 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.

 Next up on the hop is the lovely Michelle Strazds with her CASE a Bundle creation. Keep hopping around to see all of the design team’s creations.

 We would love to have you join us over at our Facebook group to share your creation CASE-ing a project from the 2024 - 2025 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue and join in this weeks challenge. You don't need to have a blog to join in!
