Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Mosaic Madness - CASE-ing The Catty


At CASE-ing the Catty this week, we are exploring the Thanks 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. 
    • 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 "So Grateful" journal on page 153 of the catalogue....I liked the colours that were used (Mossy Meadow and Crushed Curry) and the fact they used Naturals White Cardstock .....gives me an opportunity to step away from Whisper White which is the card stock I am most addicted to. :)

    I'm also submitting this to The Paper Players challenge this week since they are all about "Happy Fall Y'all" cards and even though we don't have fall in Australia, the colours on this Thank You card are autumnal and warm and make me think of autumn days in the Northern Hemisphere.

    Here's the example from the catalogue:

    ...and here is my version....

    This is more collaged and layered than my usual style but I like the expanse of the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder on the Naturals White card stock, with all the detail in the lower third of the card. It feels lovely too in real life with the burlap, the soft chevron ribbon, and the Typeset DSP providing gorgeous contrasting texture. 

    I stamped my envelope with a matching stamp from Mosaic Madness....LOVE the look of Mossy Meadow on Very Vanilla....it is striking and warm. 

    Do you stamp your envelopes...you should....it is fun!

    Hope you like my card. Just click on the links below to order these supplies. The 'THANKS" sentiment is retired but I have put a substitute in the gallery for you.
