Where did the week go?? It’s Sunday and time to Case the Catalog. Remember “CASE” means “Copy and Share Everything” or “Copy and Selectively Edit.” Whenever I need to get some inspiration or not sure where to start with a project, the first thing I do is turn to my paper copy catalogs. I do NOT go to Pinterest, You Tube, Instagram because I’ve found when I do that I get sucked in and end up wasting some precious stamping time! That’s why I love the concept of CASEing. Find a sample you like, and make it your own!
Today’s CASE comes out of this card from page 33 of the July-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog:
And, here’s my card!
Here’s a side view so you can see the dimensions – I popped up the entire Picture This layer, as well as the images and sentiments that extended into the negative space. TIP: when you are adhering a layer to the popped up section that extends into a the bottom layer (like the “Hey, Crazy Cat” or the broom) you’ll add a dimensional on the side adhering to the bottom layer, and liquid glue to the section you want attached to the popped up part. (clear as mud?! Ha!)
The best part about the Picture This dies? You get two cards out of one run through the Emboss & Cut Machine! Take the three stitched rectangle negatives, and make a 2nd card:
After all…two crazy cat Halloween cards is better than one!
