CTC#170 CASEing Tutti Fruiti and showcasing Papers

Hello again and welcome for another week of CASEing the Catty. ( Number #170 can you beleive that?)  I have been inspired by a sketch layout on page 28 of the catalogue this week - I'm on a mission to use up some of the lovely papers I have so I always study the catalogue for layouts that help me. I have also been inspired a post on the Stampin' Up! page recently by Rhoda MacPherson, one of the Artisan Design Team Members of 2018. Here's part of what she had to say

I hope you’ll join in and try a paper challenge of your own. Just use one main stamp set,
one basic layout, and three very different papers and see what you come up with!
Why not share it with the hashtag #SU1to3paperchallenge so we can check it out and be

I chose the layout in the card at the top right.
  • a full panel of DSP for the card front
  • a piece 6 cm x 9.5cm cut with a shallow flag end on one end
  • a piece of twine/ribbon tied around the right edge of the flag
  • a focal image adhered onto the flag
I used two of the papers from the Tutti Fruiti paper stack and one from the specialty foils and since I was asked for some gender neutral baby cards it was a perfect occasion to use theA little Wild set - which sadly hasn't had much use even though I've owned it for a while.
It's just so super cute.
Here's the 3 different versions.


And since I'm all about using up paper I make a point of using some on every envelope too - sometimes as a liner but often I just add onto the flap at the back

If you have lots of paper in your stash - and what self respecting paper crafter doesn't? - then maybe you'd like to incorporate elements of both the #SU1to3paperchallenge and the CASEing the Catty challenge and join us on our Facebook page. We love to see what you create inspired by the same pages of the catalogue.

I have another post from yesterday where I have used the same 3 to 1 paper idea and you might like to see that here.

With only 2 weeks of Sale A Bration left you might add some Tutti Fruit (6x6 paper stack) paper to your next order- as well as all the fruit images on one side the reverse has loads of geometric designs which are just so bright and versatile.

  1. Liz your 3 cards are super cute. I love the concept of the paper challenge, I think it would be a great idea for a class.

  2. Your cards are gorgeous, Liz. I'm sad to say my set hasn't seen ink yet,

  3. Love your 3 cute baby cards, Liz especially that foil frenzy one! What a great idea to join the 1to3 paper challenge.

  4. Just brilliant! I wanted to CASE that card too, but changed because it was too tricky for me to achieve!! Now, I'm inspired again, and will definitely give it a go! Thankyou! I love what you've done, and the 3 x 1 challenge sounds fabulous!!

  5. Oh my goodness Liz, these are gorgeous!!! What a fabulous collection of cards.

  6. Three gorgeous cards Liz. Love the idea of using the same layout to achieve three different looks x

  7. What fun cards Liz - the diagonal DSP appeals to me as it lines up with the angle of the bear head! Great challenge and might have to give it a go as well

  8. How cute are your cards!! The colouring of your bears is simply amazing!! Love the idea of using up some DSP too.
