CTC287 – CASE a Leaf project

Well here we are for another Sunday evening and another week of CASEing the Catty.  Welcome and enjoy this week’s hop.  Today we are CASEing a leaf or tree project from the Mini Catalogue.

I chose to case the card in the bottom right corner of the image below, which comes from page 46 of the August to December 2020 Mini Catalogue.

To start with I cut a 4″ x 8″ piece of Whisper White cardstock and folded it in half to make a 4″ square card.  I then repeatedly stamped the santa hat image from the Little Treats stamp set in Real Red ink over the front of the card and another on a scrap piece that I then cut out with the coordinaing dies.  Added a strip of vellum, a piece of Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon and the sentiment.  A quick and easy card.

I then decided to make a second version using the floral image from the same stamp set but this time I inked the image up using Rococo Rose & Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Markers so that I could get the two colours on the one image.   The sentiment comes from the Seaside View stamp set and was heat embossed on Rococo Rose cardstock and cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I then decided to make a third card which is probably closest to the original.  I heat embossed the Butterfly Gala stamp set images in White Embossing Powder onto a Mint Macaron card base.  This one was slightly larger at about 4 1/4″ square.  I then heat embossed one onto Highland Heather cardstock and used the Butterfly Duet Punch to punch these out.  The sentiment comes from the Hippo Happiness stamp set.

So three different cards, using 3 different techniques. Which one is your favourite?

Next up is Rachel.  I’m looking forward to seeing which projects the design team has cased this week using leaves/trees.  Make sure you keep hopping around as well to see what everyone has come up with.

So what will you come up with?  We’d love to see what you create so please share it on our Facebook page.

Until next time, happy stamping



  1. Your trio of cards are all so wonderful, but I think my favourite is the second one. The multicolour image is lovely – you must have been very patient to colour each one every time you stamped!
