Happy Fancy Friday!  The team and I are CASEing the Catalogue this month.  If this is your first time joining us, welcome!  We are a group of past and present Artisans who love to craft together and bring you inspiration on the last Friday of every month.

The project I have CASEd (Copy and Selectively Edit) can be found on page 23 of the Occasions Catalogue.

I like the whole layout and composition of the gingham card, it's clean lines and lovely layers are so my style, so I brought all of those same design elements to my card.  I also liked that they had stamped on the background DSP, something I never think to do, so copied that element as well.  That's where the similarities end.

I needed to use the Nine Lives stamp set as I don't think it has seen any inky love yet, and I am a cat lover!  How have I NOT used this yet?!!  I used my Watercolor Pencils to colour my Blue Point Birman, but didn't add any water.  I love that I can use these pencils either way!  More bang for your buck.  I think this card is going to have to go to my Mum.  She's another cat lover and I know she will be tickled pink!

I love CASEing the catalogue as there is so much inspiration in that one book!  Speaking of inspiration, the multi talented Cathy Caines is up next in the hop.  That girl always blows my mind with her awesome creations!
If you want the supplies to recreate my project, I would be delighted to be your demonstrator.  Click on the pictures below to shop my New Zealand store 24/7!
