A super excited HELLO to everyone tonight from the CASEing the Catty Team for hop CTC 131!

Why so excited you may ask?????

Because it’s NEW CATALOGUE TIME!!!!!!

Thats right – the Brand new Stampin’ Up! Catalogue has just begun and we have a whole year ahead of us to CASE the gorgeous new projects!  And you can join in too. We have made it super simple! Just make your own creation and upload it to our Facebook Page – right to the wall – no album necessary! Its that simple!

So take the hop…be inspired….and upload your own design HERE!

This week we get to CASE anything from the Everyday Occasions section of the catalogue on pages 18 – 67.

Thats A LOT of pages to choose from! Do you know how hard it was to narrow down! Lol.

But eventually I did!  I chose to showcase some of the items from the gorgeous new Wood Words Suite. I have been using it so much since I got it!

And I have two cards to show you, both CASEd from different projects in the catalogue.

My first card takes inspiration from the card in the image above.  I have stamped the flowers for the background and heat embossed with white embossing powder directly on to the Wood Textures Designer series Paper.  I then used the new copper trim to make a ‘mesh’ over the image before stamping and adhering the sentiment and heart in the new Fresh Fig colour.

It’s a bit hard to see the mesh effect of the copper trim but you create it by cutting a long piece of it and then cutting it down the length to ‘open’ it, as it’s like a tube.  Then just spread it and adhere pieces to suite your card.  Here’s a close up…

Such a quick and simple card where the background does most of the work for you!

My second card was based on these images …

I have this stamp set and I love these cards, but have yet to make them … but for today’s challenge I changed it up a little … you see, I had so many little pieces of the Wood Textures DSP left after making 17 little crates for my Launch this weekend, so I tried to replicate this look using those scraps!

I think its a great way to use up all of those scraps!
