CTC #276 - CASE The Animals (and Birds)

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, where utilise the projects within the current Stampin' Up! catalogue to inspire our own projects each week. We also invite you to join with us in the challenge each week by using this inspiration in your own creations and uploading a photo to our Facebook page.

This week we are taking our inspiration from the Animals of the Annual Catalogue, so any project that features critters is perfect for this challenge. 

Figuring that birds are critters too, I was inspired by these images from page 85 of the Annual Catalogue. One of the things I love about this image is the three versions of the same card, and how they have progressively stepped up. 

I also loved the monochromatic look of these cards, so decided not to change much about the original at all in my CASE.  The images are coloured using water colour pencils, these are great for adding soft colours to a project, especially when you don't add any water!  And now we have two sets of colours there is lots of scope for shading and depth of colour. 

I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week, just use any samples from the Annual Catalogue that uses animals (or birds, or fish!) to inspire your creativity, then post a picture of your project to the CTC Facebook page.

Time to hop on over and see what Julia has created this week.

Happy Stamping


  1. Lovely, Monique. The postage stamp punch is the perfect size for these birdies.

  2. Great card. Love the monochromatic look and elements.

  3. Your case is just gorgeous! Love it all.

  4. Doesn't it look great in Cinnamon Cider! I love the bird on the postage stamp punch.

  5. Such a pretty card, Monique! I love the softness that the watercolour pencils have given the bird image.


I love reading your comments, thanks for taking the time to write them.
