Hi there

Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty for this week.

If you've come from visiting Julia, 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 button at the bottom of the post. 


This week we are taking our inspiration from the Take To The Sky Suite on page 36 of the 2024-2025 Annual Catalogue


I've chosen the card above for my inspiration project. I like the layout with the layers and contrasting colours and patterns of the designer paper.

I thought the lovely Mediterranean Blooms DSP with the bold blue and white patterns and contrasting citrus colours would work well with the layout. I don't have any of the other products in the suite, but you can do a lot with Stampin' Up!'s gorgeous patterned paper. I started with a card front sized piece of Navy of Navy cardstock and added a layer of the small lemon and olive print. Next up is the small Night of Navy print and I added it to a Night of Navy mat with a narrow border. For the tag, I have a piece of Thick Basic White that I dry embossed with the Distressed Tile 3D Embossing Folder. It is similiar to some of the tile patterns in the paper and the distressed look is very European, lol. After trimming the corners I added it to a Night of Navy mat with a narrow border to add pop. I think matting your layers does add a more finished look to the card.

I used the tag hole and ring die from the Perennial Postage Dies to add the hole to the tag and I've threaded a couple of strands of Linen Thread through and knotted it. The lemon image has been fussy cut from the paper and I adhered it to Basic White cardstock first, to make it more robust. The left side of the image is popped up on 1mm foam pads to account for the height of the layers on the other side. I cropped some sprigs from Old Olive cardstock with the Painted Lavender Dies and cut them into pieces and popped them around to fill out the image. The greeting from the  Layering Leaves stamp set is heat embossed in white on Night of Navy cardstock and then fussy cut and popped up.  As I don't have the coordinating Opal Rounds Assortment, I coloured a few Pool Party dots from the Glossy Dots Assortment with a Night of Navy Stampin' Blends marker. The finished panel was adhered to a Thick Basic White card base.

For the inside, I have a Night of Navy mat for the writing panel with a strip of the navy print at the bottom. I fussy cut an image from the edge of the Mediterranean Blooms paper and adhered it to the edge of the writing panel.
