Stampin' Up! Australia - CASEing The Catty - Stampin' Up! Nordic Noel Santa


At CASE-ing the Catty this week, we are exploring the various Christmas Cards of the new Holiday 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. 
    • Only Stampin' Up! products (retired or current) may be used in your projects for CTC Challenges. 
    So let's go!

    I decided to CASE the "Get Your Santa On" card on on page 30 of the Holiday Catalogue.

    Here's what I made:

    Isn't he cute!!!?

    Rather than a Sahara Sand base layer I layered my card onto Whisper White with a mat of Garden Green. The DSP is from Nordic Noel - a fun patterned paper pack from the 2014 Holiday Catalogue. The Nordic Designer button and Real Red Satin Woven Ribbon are also from the Holiday Catalogue. 

    I rounded the top left and right corners of my DSP and Santa layer with the Project Life Corner Rounder Punch

    Santa from "Get Your Santa On" is coloured with Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities, Smoky Slate Blendabilities and the Skin Tone Assortment Blendabilities. I coloured his cheeks with the 'Naturals' marker and his face with the 'Nude' marker. 

    You can't see it in the photo, but I put some Dazzling Details sparkle on the pom-pom on his hat for some added bling. :)

    I hope you like my card, and please play with us at CASEing the Catty.....get ahead on those Christmas Cards! :)
