CASE-ing the Catty | CTC#475 | Case Country Woods Suite pages 48-49

 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 Selectively Edit. This week we are CASE-ing the Country Woods Suite on Pgs. 48 - 49 of the 2024 - 2025 Annual Catalogue.

I've made quite a few cards with this suite already. You can check them out HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. So with that I wanted to CASE some of the design elements in the gorgeous samples but with using a different bundle.

I really loved the little catalogue sample note cards that were stamped straight on the Country Woods DSP. So that is what I've done here today using the Layers of Beauty Bundle. The DSP almost gives the stamped image a textural look without adding more layers.

I've heat embossed the floral image using black embossing powder and then using the Layers of Beauty stencils added layers of colour. For the flowers I used Bubble Bath, Petunia Pop and Berry Burst and then for the leaves I used Summer Splash and Shy Shamrock.

Because the Layers of Beauty image is such a feature the card didn't need much else to finish it off just  some basic ribbon, trim, embellishments and sentiments.

I hope that I've inspired you with my CASE of the Country Woods Suite and the stamping straight on the DSP, which I don't do much of but I really like the look of.

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 Rochelle Laird-Smith with her amazing Country Woods CASE.

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!
