STAMP 'N HOP November Blog Hop : Casing the Annual Catalogue

This month we are all CASE-ing a project from the Annual Catalogue, meaning we Copy And Share Everything, or Copy And Selectively Edit.  Whichever way you choose, we are inspired by something we have seen that we liked to create in our own way.   As I'm still currently working on Christmas themes, I've chosen Mistletoe Season stamp set #146768.

p94 Annual Catalogue - my CASE inspiration

I know there are some wonderful new designs in the Autumn/Winter catalogue but these Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper #146921 in the Annual Catalogue are really gorgeous., so I stocked up in the summer promotion ready for my series of Festive Retreats.

This card I just changed the ink colour to Shaded Spruce and then a different DSP to coordinate.

Of course, the sprig branch, outline ribbon and inner ribbon stamped off, were all created using my Stamparatus #148187.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Stamparatus and customers are loving it too.  The ore they use, the more they want one themselves.  I've had a variety of people buying, including those helping those with unsteady hands and even one registered blind person, who got on really well with it and is now making cards for Blind UK.  Inspiration to us all. ‎

I hope you have loved my card CASE today.  Make sure  to visit all the Demonstrators taking part in todays 'hop' and their wonderful creations.

  1. Love your case's Sandra especially #2. TFS

  2. I love this blog post. My elderly dad has a Stamparatus now and loves stamping. Brilliant card too 😊

  3. Perfect card to use a stamparatus. I am happy you are having such a success using this tool. I have it but don't use it that often. Thank you for the reminder.
    I like your take on the card. Shaded Spruce is my favourite dark green colour.

  4. I too love the Stamparatus. Honestly, I never learned how to line up stamps by hand. I started stamping with a different brand of stamp tool and I LOVE this one. It's like version 2 with all the extra things it can do for us!

  5. Love this card Sandra #simplestamping at its best

  6. A pretty colour combo, thank you for sharing x
