CASE-ing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop

Happy Valentines Day



Love is in the air this week, as the CASE-ing The Catty crew get in the mood for Valentines Day.

This time we’re taking inspiration from any of the current catalogues, so I went for the cute Groovy Love card on page 20 of the annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

You can see the original in my catalogue on the right, and my version on the left.

CASEing the Stampin' Up! catalogue - this time we took our inspiration from page 20 of the annual catalogue


I used some pretties from the Occasions catalogue including the divine Blushing Bride glimmer paper and the Love Blossoms Embellishment kit.

Now I’d love to extend an invitation to you to join in the creativity this month. Simply look to one of the Stampin’ Up! catalogues for inspiration, make a card with a Valentine theme, and share your link with us!

    oh I much prefer your version Simone. Such a lot of lovely details, the seam binding tied through the heart is just perfect. Must get the Annual Catalogue out for another look! thanks for the inspiration.

    Aww thanks Liz 🙂 And yes I’m guilty of not looking at the Annual Catalogue as much with so many shiny new things in the seasonal catalogues. But it’s well worth revisiting the annual.

    Gorgeous!! And the Blushing Bride is so wonderful on this card! Along with the beautiful enamel dots too. I love your version!

    Thanks Julia. The dots came in the embellishment pack – I love them too! It’s a little difficult to see in the photo but those dots actually have glitter in them. Gorgeous up close.

    Awesome CASEing, Simone! Love your elegant take on the funky original. Beautiful card. 🙂

    What a lovely case Simone. I too prefer your card to the one in the catty. The love blossoms embellishment kit looks to have some great little additions in it. I might have to do a bit of shopping after the hop ?

    I love your card!! Especially the shadow box effect! And I love the colours you have used, so lovely.

    I think hearts are a huge theme for this week’s hop, just means love. I love all the embellishments and textures of this card. Happy Valentine’s Day.

    This card is so stunning Simone. I love it!
    Yours should be in the catologue, it’s even prettier than the one on display.
