CTC#358 Embossed Inspiration

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

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything, and we love to CASE from our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues (CATTY).

This week, we are CASEING an embossed project from any catalogue!!  Embossing can mean 3 different techniques - you can emboss with a folder using your die cutting machine, you can heat emboss with embossing powder and a heat tool, or you can use embossing paste in many different ways!!  

My project is a simple tag/bookmark which I've used for the name tags on the kits for my Retreat Day this weekend - so I made 24 of these!!  

I've cased the lovely embossed card on page 8 of the mini catalogue.  I used the super sweet Gingham Embossing folder, inked the folder using my balmy blue ink and then ran my cardstock through my die cutting machine to create a lovely tone on tone effect which shows up the gingham pattern beautifully.  

I've then used a bunch of the gorgeous Pierced Blooms dies with Bumblebee, Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party cardstock.  The greeting was stamped using the lovely Blessings of Home stamp set and Balmy Blue ink on Shimmery White cardstock.  This lovely die for the greeting also comes from the great Pierced Blooms dies.  

The tag itself was punched using one of our great tag punches  - the Delightful Tag Topper punch.  My finishing touch is the sublime sheer Pool Party ribbon - swoon - this is just gorgeous ribbon!!  

Up next is the super awesome Sandra and her great project.

You are invited to join in the fun with us too and add your project to the line up on our Facebook challenge page here.  


  1. That's a whole lot of detail packed into a tiny space Julia! Love the dedication - that would have kept you out of trouble for a while making so many. The background sets the flowers off well and makes the greeting pop.

  2. The gingham embossing folder looks great. You’ve been busy making that many for the retreat. I’m sure everyone loved them.

  3. I love how you have transformed the catalogue card into a bookmark. Just gorgeous!
