CASE-ing the Catty - Love & Sympathy

Hi there

This week the CTC Crew are looking at the Love & Sympathy section of the new Annual Catalogue on pages 86-101.

You may have come from visiting Rebecca's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can start your journey here and continue by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.


It has been a difficult week for us, as we had to put our beautiful silver Bengal cat Artie to sleep, after he had a stroke. Our pets become part of the family and their passing brings much sadness. This card is for everyone who needs a little extra TLC this week.

I'm CASE-ing the card above from the 'Whole Lot of Lovely' suite on page 86 of the Annual Catalogue. I love all the products in this suite and I've only managed to use a few of them this week.  I look forward to coming back to this suite soon.

Stampin' Up! Lots of Love for CASE-ing the Catty - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I wanted a softer feel to my card, so I've used Basic Gray for the 'sending love' greeting, rather than black. I stamped the 'love' again and fussy cut and popped it up on the stamped image. I used a combination of markers and ink pads to stamp the rest of the cute floral elements that surround the large greeting. This stamp set is perfect for using your Stampin' Write markers to get the detail you want.


I adhered the art panel to thick Whisper White card stock before adding some of the new Pool Party Shimmer ribbon around the top, with a little string of the new Mini Sequin trim in gold. I popped up the whole panel onto the Powder Pink card base. This is my first use of this colour and it is very pretty and I love it with Pool Party and grey.    


For the inside, I have a Pool Party mat and some of the lovely new washi tape from the Basics Packs at the bottom for a simple and sweet finish.

I am so sorry to read about Artie. He is a beautiful cat! Our fur babies are so much a part of our families. I hope your memories can comfort you. I agree about the gray being a softer color.
