CASE-ing The Catty #143 – Artistic Expression

Welcome to this week’s CTC challenge – Artistic Expression. We’re taking inspiration from pages 132 – 181 of SU’s Annual Catalogue. This time around I chose to CASE an awesome colour combo on page 149. Love it! …

I really wanted to challenge myself even further and feature a stamp set I have not used in a long time. Sitting Here Stamp Set is greatly under appreciated in my craft room, so that one was the perfect choice. Here’s what I came up with…

As you can see, I’ve stuck with the crumb cake base just because it’s so effective. My main feature is also black, although stamped not die cut like the butterfly.  Then following the original, I have used whisper white and gold for the accents and sentiment.

I hope you have enjoyed my project this week. It just so happens to be one of my new favourites! Next up we have Angela’s amazing project (you will LOVE this). Alternatively, hop on backwards to visit my Stampin’ Up upline – Liz.

Thank you for checking in this week, be sure to come back next Sunday for the launch of SU’s 2017 Holiday Catalogue!! That one is not to be missed!

  1. Just brilliant. This stamp set is very underappreciated in my craft room too – and I would love to CASE you – I love what you’ve done with this card and I think these colours and layout have been a brilliant way to breathe new life into this stamp set. Thank you!!!

  2. Oh that’s lovely Krissy. Brilliant work . White on Crimb Cake is always stunning but the gold and black are a great extra. Beautiful fussy cutting of the swing. I agree with everything Julia said too. Love it

  3. This is such a gorgeous card, Krissy. I love the leaves stamped in the background and the touches of gold. Your swing looks very inviting!

  4. Just WOW!!!!! This card is stunning! I absolutely love it! You’ve really bought that swing to life and I love the background and all the extra touches! Just gorgeous!!!!!
