Caseing the Hostess sets CTC#203

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Caseing the Catty Blog Hop and challenge.

To CASE is to Copy And Selectively Edit or even Copy And Share Everything.  So, our design team encourages you to CASE from our Stampin' Up! catalogues - which are chock full of amazing projects there to inspire you!!

This week, the challenge is to CASE any of our Hostess Sets from the Annual Catalogue or the Holiday Catalogue.

My CASE is inspired by this beautiful card on page 226 of the Annual Catalogue.  When I first saw this gorgeous stamp set Very Vintage (hostess set), I thought it would be great for scrapbooking - especially this lovely greeting featured on this card..... and so this challenge enabled me to create that thought!!!

My page is a very close CASE of the card - I've only added a bit of extra stamping to cater for the larger size of my project, and added a couple of extra fussy cut bees. 

These colours are so quiet and beautiful - and so easy to work with!!  They are Crumb Cake and Soft Sea Foam.

Very Vintage has some truly beautiful images, and I love that it also coordinates with the Darling Label punch too!!

Keep hopping around the whole team - you'll see some more fabulous inspiration from the Hostess Stamp projects!!

And please join in the fun of our challenge and add your projects inspired by the Hostess Sets into our lineup on our facebook challenge page!!

Until Next Time
