CASE-ing the Catty - Card from Aug-Dec Mini

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty challenge! 

If you've come from visiting Kathryn, then welcome! If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today!  You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the CTC Crew by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post. 


This week we are CASE-ing a card from page 36 of the August-December Mini Catalogue, which you can see in the banner photo above.


I've chosen the card above, that I've cropped out so you can see it better. I have previously CASE-d the snowflake shaker card from this collection and you can see it here.

Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Garden Bundle - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

I've created my card using the new Dragonfly Garden Bundle which is one of two in the Dandy Garden Suite from the upcoming 2021 January - June Mini Catalogue.  Attendees of last weeks annual Stampin' Up! OnStage event were able to purchase these products in advance of the normal preporder period. I chose a design from the coordinating Dandy Garden 6" x 6" paper pack and added it to a Blackberry Bliss card base. The banner was cut from a Calypso Coral design from the same pack.

I've stamped the greeting from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set with Blackberry Bliss ink and cropped it with my Stitched Rectangle Dies and added a mat of Blackberry Bliss. In keeping with the rustic garden theme, I added the twine behind the popped-up greeting panel. Using the new Dragonflies Punch, I've cropped the large Blackberry Bliss dragonfly from a sheet of the designer paper. I roughly cut it out and then adhered it to some Whisper White with Tombow first, to make it more robust. The smaller dragonfly on the opposite corner can also be cropped with the punch. At the bottom of the banner, you can see one of the Ladybug Trinkets, also from the suite. They are soooo cute! They are a brass colour, but I've given mine a light coat  of Pumpkin Pie with my Stampin' Blends just to see whether they can be coloured.

For the inside, I have stamped the large line image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on the right in Mossy Meadow ink. The imagery in this set is really fine. I added a piece of the Bumblebee designer paper at the bottom and fussy cut the tiny Calypso Coral dragonfly, also from the same sheet of patterned paper as the large dragonfly.

So beautiful, Judy. I love the way this DSP looks in the background. Lots of lovely details here but I love that you've coloured the little ladybugs, that's a great tip.

Julia Quinn

Oh My. Your card is sooo lovely! These new stampset work a total treat with the layout! So clever.

Michelle Strazds

I love your card. I love how you have used the colours in the background DSP for the other elements in your card. They all work together beautifully.

Rebecca Scurr

One of my friends loves purple and I love how your card really highlights all the purple in the DSP. I think I'll be casing your card for her birthday!
