I hit up the catalogue this week for a card using the Coffee Cafe stamp set.
Do you ever use your catalogue for inspiration?
CASEing refers to “Copy And Share Everything” or “Copy And Selectively Edit”.
When I first joined Stampin’ Up!, the Annual Catalogues were marketed as ‘ideas books’. And it’s such a good description.
The pages are filled with ideas for colour combinations, layouts, techniques & other ways you can use your Stampin’ Up! supplies.
This gorgeous photo shows so many ideas for the Coffee Break Suite…
Cards inspired from the catalogue can either be a direct copy of what you see, a mix of elements or a starting point for your own creation.
My finished card used the layout at the right of the catalogue photo, the DSP background from the card above it and added some copper heat embossing & woodgrain textured embossing (which I have realise as I write this, is not longer current!).
If you already love using the catalogue for inspiration, or if it’s a new concept to you, you might want to join our CASEing the Catty Facebook page.
Each week we select a catalogue category or theme and set a challenge for you to ‘CASE’ the catalogue.
I find my best creations often come out of challenges!
