CASEing the Catty #87 Artistic Expressions


Can you believe it’s the end of the weekend already???  But, that means it’s time for another CASEing the Catty blog hop.

Every Sunday night at 7pm (AEST), the CTC Crew will share lots of great ideas with you from the latest Stampin’ Up! Catalogue. They will either directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combo, embellishment, to name a few examples, as a springboard for their own creations.

This week, the Crew are sharing ideas inspired by the Artistic Expressions section of the Annual Catalogue (pages 92-157).  This section is huge, so we’re going to see lots of amazing designs.

I am showcasing the layouts you see in this picture from page 129, but using other stamp sets from the catalogue.  I also changed up the colour combinations.

For my CASE of the top photo I used the hostess stamp set “Gift of Love” (page 201).

And for the bottom photo I used the Wetlands stamp set from page 133.  I just love this stamp set – it’s easily one of my all-time favourites.

Doesn’t it look stunning against the water scene from the Serene Scenery DSP???

  1. Kelly these are just lovely. You are making it harder for me to not put Wetlands on my next order, it goes so well with this DSP.

  2. I have to say your gift of love card is so pretty with the colour block background. I didn’t even notice it in the catty, but your card really makes it pop. OMG, that wetlands card is simply stunning!

  3. Lovely work Kelly! Love the sentiment and feminine take on the first card, and I think your second CASE beats the original by a mile. Fantastic & inspiring use of the serene scenery DSP, it just gives the card extra dimension and warmth.

  4. I love that with our blog, we see the projects in the catalogue in different ways – your cards are gorgeous and I totally love the burlap and linen thread detail – something I’d never noticed in the Catty!! Your cards are both wonderful, but I really love the wetlands on the DSP – this looks amazing!!

  5. Wow! Your stamp set choices with the layouts have turned out beautifully. Great ‘CASES’.
