CTC Blog Hop – Something awesome that caught my eye!

Hello there

Welcome to this week’s CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop where we draw inspiration from the Stampin’ Up! catalogue to create a project to share with you!

You may have come from Judy’s Blog or be starting the hop here – either way – hope you have fun seeing what the Crew has created.

CASE means Copy and Share Everything – and there is plenty to copy and share in the catty.

Our brief this week:

What project really caught your eye the first time you flicked through the Catty?  CASE it!

A somewhat tricky brief as my eyes were in overload as I flicked through the catty! There are just so many awesome projects in the new Annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue released yesterday (2 June) it was hard to choose one that leapt out.

That being said, my choice was sort of easy as one set has special meaning for me – Awesomely Artistic. This set was given by Stampin’ Up! as a gift to Demonstrators at the recent South Pacific Convention who held the title of Manager. This was how it was presented:

Such a beautiful gift from such a wonderful and generous company.

Here is the card from the catty which I decided to case – it is on page 125.



So … I CASE’d the card itself and the wrapping of the stamp set when it was given as a gift. Here’s how it turned out:



I’m not really a pink sort of girl (shock horror I know!) but I must say I have taken a fancy to Rose Red at the moment. It pairs so well with the Wild Wasabi Seam Binding and earthy tones of the Burlap Ribbon. The Early Espresso is a great contrast colour.

Love the crinkly threads that you get when you pull some strands from the Burlap ribbon – they add interesting texture when included as an embellishment in their own right. And isn’t the burlap stamp a great element to have as a stamp – lots of potential uses there!

As usual – I like to carry the card’s theme through to the inside of the card which you can see in this close-up picture.


I think we will see a lot of the Awesomely Artistic set in the coming months. I love the variety of the elements in the set. It will work well with lots of other sets as well which is always a bonus!

If you get lost along the way – just head back to the CTC Home page HERE to see a list of all the participants. Do have a look at all the blogs – the projects will definitely get you inspired!


I’m off to Hawaii tomorrow morning for three weeks vacation with hubby! We are meeting up with some friends who are already there.

I have packed some Project Life Card Collections and an album as I am hoping to catch up on my Project 365 album. But no cardmaking things are coming with me so I may be getting withdrawal symptoms by the time I get back!

Not sure if I’ll get to post here while I’m away – but keep an eye on my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/creativeJax) to see what I’m up to!

Until next time

    Ooh! I’m so glad that stamp set is on it’s way to my place as your card has inspired me to not take too long to ink it up. Such a beautiful CASE.

  1. Gorgeous Jackie and adding the burlap is a great idea too.,

    That is really cool! I like the burlap stamping too. 🙂

  2. Jackie this was one of the cards that caught my eye too. Love, love, love your card, hope my set arrives this week!!

  3. Rose Red is a colour I have just discovered lately after ignoring it for so long. I love it teamed with Wild Wasabi on your card.. Great CASE Jackie, & enjoy your trip to Hawaii!

  4. Great colour combination and this stamp set is definitely on my wish list.
