CASEing the Catty - #CTC296 Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper Step It Up

It's Step It Up at CASEing the Catty this week taking inspiration from the Mini Catalogue.  Creating comes in three categories of Crafters - Beginning, Casual and Avid!

You may have started the hop here, welcome or you may have come from Siobhan Fitzsimmons.

Earlier in the week I fussy cut out the white poinsettias as I wanted to use them as my centrepiece of the card.  I have used the Whisper White note cards with a strip of the green Designer Series Paper on the left hand side.  

Beginner Card - The Designer Series Paper is stuck down onto the card base as it the Sentiment

Casual Card - I have layered a piece of Whisper White cardstock up on dimensions on the card base and I have also popped up the poinsettia and added a gem and also the sentiment is raised up and I used the banner punch to give a further detail.

Avid Card - I again layered with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and then added some wonderful Plush Poinsettia Speciality Paper as a background.  I added the Beaded Pearls to the centre of the poinsettia and then made a feature of the sentiment with the Tasteful Labels Die and then added some ribbon on the edges.

  1. Three gorgeous cards!! I need to do some fussy cutting of those pretty flowers!

  2. Love love love your cards. Love these flowers and paper. Love all the white. Love the bling on the avid card. Love the layout. It's all amazing.

  3. A great set of cards. I love all of them but do like the textures, layers and elements of the avid card.

  4. Kathryn, these cards are simply beautiful. I didn't purchase the Poinsettia stamp as I already had a couple, but every time I look at this one I think I should have. I love your progression from beginner to avid stamper. Beautifully done and just right. Have a wonderful December and enjoy the season! Penny
