We are back for CASEing the Catty 161 where we get to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) from the Saleabration Catalogue this week! ANYTHING from the Saleabration Catalogue. That leaves a lot of scope you know!
Have you got your copy of the new catalogues yet? You don’t want to miss out because Saleabration allows you to choose FREE products for every $90 or $180 spent! So make sure you contact your demonstrator for a copy!
This week I decided to CASE this lovely card on the front cover of the catalogue –
Although, I have to be honest, I didn’t really like the colours in this image. So that was the task I set myself – Copy the card but change up the colours. I pictured this card more with black and white tones, with just a hint of colour to lift the flowers. So this is what I created –
I started with a Basic Black base and added a layer of Petal Passion Designer Paper (5 3/4″ x 4″).
For my second layer I stamped the flower from the Amazing You Stamp Set (FREE) in versamark, on another Basic Black Layer (5″ x 3 1/4″) before heat embossing with our Clear Embossing Powder. I then stamped the ‘rays’ in versamark in the centre of this piece and heat set with Silver Embossing powder. A couple of wraps of the New Silver Baker’s Twine finished with a bow, and then the whole layer was popped up on dimensionals to finish it off.
The flowers were created by stamping in versamark onto Vellum Cardstock and heat setting with White Embossing Powder – so much embossing today! Lol. I then coloured the back of the images with our Stampin Blends. You couldn’t see the colours on the black like this though – so I then adhered them with some tombow to Whisper White Cardstock, before fussy cutting each flower and adhering to the card. I added a few other elements before using the Celebrate You Thinlets (also FREE) to cut the ‘Amazing’ sentiment. This was so easy to adhere using the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets!
I’m really happy with how this card turned out, and dare I say – I prefer my colour combination 🙂 And even better, the stamp set and framelits are products that you can choose for FREE during Saleabration !
We would love to see you create your own work of art by CASEing something from the Occasions Catalogue and posting a picture of it on our Facebook Group – HERE. You have until next Monday to get your entries in!
Now it’s time to hop on over to Jackie Noble and see what she has created this week!

Great CASE, Mel. Can’t wait to get those thinlits.
Thanks Judy. They really are lovely!
I love a good black and white version of a card, and yours is just beautiful. The softly coloured flowers are the perfect accent to the harsh black and white.
Thanks so much Monique xx
