Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Sketched Birthday - CASE-ing the Catty #3


At CASE-ing the Catty this week, we are exploring the Birthday chapter of the catalogue. 

CASE - The acronym stands for COPY AND SHARE EVERYTHING. The latest Stampin' Up! ® Catalogue certainly encourages crafters to do just that as it is jam packed with amazing, inspirational projects.

The idea is to feature a section of the Stampin' Up! ® catalogue each week using the projects in the catty as inspiration.

You can directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combo, embellishment, just to name a few examples, as a springboard for your own creations.

Here's a Badge to paste to your blog:


  •   Create a new project for the current challenge (no back linking)
  • Mention CTC Challenges in your blog post and link back to the challenge blog so others can join in on the fun.
  • Let us know what project you CASED and make reference to the page of your country's catalogue where you got your inspiration. 
  • SUO products (retired or current) may be used in your projects for CTC Challenges. 

So let's go!

For my card, I was inspired by the card on page 51...see below....the card designer for the catalogue used Giggle Greetings which is very cute, but I don't have it! (yet), but I do have Sketched Birthday and I thought the piece of cheese in the original could be a slice of cake on a plate!

I used the colour palette from the original inspiration photo and used the basic layout too. I am a little bit in love with the Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder....such a fun way to add texture to a background. 

Materials used (click through to see the item in my store):


  1. Lovely fresh, clean use of the catalogue card for inspiration Alison. You've made the bright shades POP! This card has inspired a few of us,LOL!!!

  2. Love the gorgeous choice of colours and the addition of the DSP. Great CASE-ing from the Catty.
