CTC 217: The Good Things

Published by under cards | Feb 23 2019

What’s CASE-ing The Catty? CASE stands for “Copy And Share Everything”. It means we use the ideas and inspiration from one project and apply them to another to create something altogether new. Each Sunday evening at 7pm AEST/8pm AEDT the CTC Crew kick off a new Challenge using the Stampin’ Up! catalogues as inspiration.

This week’s ‘CASEing The Catty’ Sunday Challenge has us looking at pages 24-33 of the latest Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalogue.

These pages feature dozens of great cards, gift packaging and even scrapbook pages.

I was inspired by the bright and bold box on the bottom of page 24.

In particular, I was inspired by some of the design elements including the central vertical ribbon, the bow at the top, patterned background and the central image/sentiment.

Using those design elements, I made this:

This card features a Basic Gray card base, a panel from the Petal Promenade designer series paper pack (still a favourite), a sentiment from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and pretty Petal Pink/Whisper White variegated ribbon. A panel of vellum adds some softness.

To continue on the hop for more inspiration, just click on the Next button below and you’ll be on your way to see what Shannon has made for us this week. 

Would you like to have a go at this week’s challenge? To join in, you can either directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combination or something similar, as inspiration for your own creation. Then simply take a photo of your project and upload it to the latest challenge album in the CASEing The Catty Challenge group on Facebook. Each challenge will end at 7pm (AEST) on Saturday before the next challenge is posted. We pick some winners each week, but most importantly it’s a fun way to get out of your creative comfort zone and try something new. 

Happy stamping,

    Oh this is a marvellous way to use those frame panels in this DSP. I love the vellum flagged ends too under this lovely greeting. What a gorgeous card.
