Hello everyone. It is time for another Stamp Off Challenge with Buffy, Jackie and me. This time our challenge is to “CASE The Catalog”. This is where you pick an creation from any Stampin’ Up!® catalog and make your own card using that creation as a basis. As a disclaimer (I seem to have a lot of those lately), I choose the card I wanted to CASE (Copy & Share Everything) but once I started it went downhill from there. So this is the card I chose to CASE:
It is on page 12 of the 2021 July – December Mini Catalog.
Here is the card I made:
Ok. I already know they are not really close because I got carried away but there are some things I did the same as the Stampin’ Up!® card. Their card used an embossing folder for the background. I used a die from Stitched Snowflakes. They used Copper Foil and I used Blushing Bride cardstock but they are both pink, right? Sort of. Kind of. I also used Pool Party and so did they! I used the same sentiment as they did and I even embossed it using Silver Embossing Powder as they did. So that is close CASEing, right?
To make this card I used the Merry Snowflakes Bundle. This includes the Merry Snowflakes stamp set and the gorgeous Stitched Snowflakes Dies. If you purchase them in a bundle you can save 10%. The first thing I did was to use a die in this set on Pool Party card stock that cut out the background snowflakes. The die itself is only an inch or so wide so I had to do it several times to cover the entire piece of cardstock. Here is a close up of what the background looks like. It just makes the snowflake patterns without using out the shapes.
Isn’t that pretty?
After I did the background I cut out all the snowflakes in Smoky Slate, Blushing Bridge and Basic White card stock and adhered them together using Multipurpose Glue. Originally I was only going to do the one snowflake but I just needed more so I added the other two larger ones. Of course, that lead to some blank spots so I had to add the Blushing Bride snowflakes too.
Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink, sprinkled Silver Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.
Now, let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie CASEd from the catalog. Perhaps they did a better job than I did!
Susan, this is beautiful. I love your muted colors and the way you got carried away with those snowflakes!
I LOVE all your snowflakes, and that background is perfect! It’s definitely a CASE, and, don’t tell, but I like your card better. 😉
More snowflakes is always better! (like more cowbell?) You were the only one to share the card you cased, so you get extra points for that, too! 🙂
