It's a new Catalogue and it's snowing!! CTC244

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY.

To CASE is to Copy And Selectively Edit or to Copy And Share Everything.  We love to CASE from our Stampin' Up! catalogues.

No photo description available.

With the launch of our new Holiday Catalogue this coming week, we are CASEING from the front cover!!  I've been inspired by the super cute snowman card with the trees.

I've used the same colours of Real Red, Coastal Cabana, and Shaded Spruce.  I've kept to a very similar layout too.

This project was totally designed around having a play with the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint!  You put a teeny tiny amount (this is important!!) in thin lines, and then hear with the heat tool to see it puff up!!  My first attempts had way too much puff paint which did puff up but then when I touched it the puffed up bubble burst and more paint spread everywhere!!!  So, less is totally more!!

I've created the same card in two different orientations - which one do you think works better?
My cards feature the fun stamp set Perfectly Plaid and the coordinating Pine Tree punch.  

Up next on our fun hop is the lovely Rebecca and her beautiful wreath card.  Make sure you keep hopping all the way around the team - there's some beautiful inspiration being shared for you!

We love you to join in the fun with us too!  Create your project inspired by the catalogue cover and add it to the lineup on our facebook challenge page.


  1. Oh it is snowing indeed! The puff paint looks like fun. I love the colour combo here and those embossed trees. I like the orientation of the landscape version but they are both winners :)

  2. Great colour combo, Julia and the embossed trees look super. Thanks for the tips on the puff paint too, as I haven't tried it yet.

  3. Thanks for the tip about less is more with the puff paint. I’ll have to remember this when I have time to play with it. I first liked the landscape but think I’ve changed my mind to portrait. Both look great!
