Welcome to the New Year! CTC#260

Hello and Welcome to a New Year!!  And a New Challenge with CASEING the CATTY!!

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues and then challenge you to do the same!!! This year, we are going to run the challenges for 2 weeks so you'll have plenty of time to get your entry onto our facebook challenge page!!

For our FIRST challenge for 2020, we are CASEING any project from our wonderful new amazing Mini Catalogue.  It's just awesome with 75 pages of awesomeness!!  

I have chosen to CASE the Painted Poppies bundle image from page 4.  I've changed the orientation of the main image and chosen a completely different colour range.  

My base card is Very Vanilla, and I have stamped all the images using our new Saddle Brown stazon, coloured them using Stampin' Blends in Old Olive for the leaves and Light Mango Melody and Light Daffodil Delight for the flowers.  

Under my floral cluster is some Old Olive Vellum and Daffodil Delight for the die cut swirls which I cut in half so you could see MORE of the swirls on either side.  The greeting comes from a great Sale-a-bration stamp set - Sending You Thoughts.  

The centre of the card uses some more great images from both stamp sets! I really love a monochromatic card, and this one is just lovely I think!! 

Up next of our first hop this year is the super lovely Rebecca and her stunning poppy card.  
Make sure you keep hopping all the way around the team and you'll see lots of amazing inspiration to get you CASEING from our new Mini Catalogue.

Please join in the fun with us this year!  You can add your project CASED from our Mini Catalogue here on our facebook challenge page.  

If you still need to get one of our new catalogues, please contact me so I can send one to you.  You can also see the PDF here.
