Stampin' Up! Australia - Cheerful Critters Birthday - CASE-ing the Catty #18


Welcome to this week's CASE-ing the Catty!

Today the challenge is all about CASE-ing from the Birthday section of the Occasions Catalogue.

CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything.  This whole challenge blog is about using the current Stampin' Up! Catalogues to help you create.  Sometimes crafters need a springboard to just get started and the catalogues are certainly a demonstrator or customer's best resource.
So check out the Valentine's section of the Occasions Catty and find a project that you would like to try.  

There are lots of ideas but here's a few to help you get started -
  • CASE a sketch or layout
  • Try a colour combo 
  • CASE an embellishment and use it on your own project

Most importantly, have FUN!

Guidelines -
  • Create a new project for the current challenge.
  • Mention CTC Challenges in your blog post and link back here so others can join in on the fun.  Please ensure that you link up your blog post, not your whole blog.
  • Mostly SUO (Stampin' Up! ® Only) products (retired or current) to be used in your projects for CTC Challenges.
  • Have fun and inspire others!
I decided to CASE the Cheerful Critters Birthday card from page 14. This card is for my brother's birthday....hence my handwritten "DUDE!" on the front. :)

 Here's the original:

Instead of the yellow stripe, I decided to use the brick wall paper from the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack and made it look like the critters were popping out from behind a wall. :)

Instead of the watercolour wash of the original, I used the Irresistibly Yours DSP from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue and sponged it in Soft Sky to create a starry background. 

I hope you like my card. If you have been inspired by it and would like to support my creative business, all the supplies may be found at my online store or by clicking the links in the recipe below. 

Be sure to visit the rest of the CASE-ing the Catty Design Team and see what they have done this week. We would love you to join us and link up your projects to our blog. :)
