ShowCASE Sunday: Smitten Mittens

Where do you find your inspiration?

Lately, I’ve been turning to the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog…it may be small but it is MIGHTY!

Fifty-five (55) pages packed full of great ideas!

  • color combinations
  • card layouts
  • nifty ways to use products in ways I may not have thought of

Stampin’ Up! has done the work for you…feel free to CaSE it!

The image that we are working with today is on page 51. Incidentally, if you do not have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator or a catalog-please let me know as I would love to pop one in the mail for you and earn your business.

For ShowCASE Sunday, page 51 in 2017 Holiday Catalog from Stampin' Up! For details click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #smittenmittens #handstamped

One of the reasons this image was chosen is because of the versatility but also because I love the layer of vellum and it’s ability to tone down the images in the background designer series paper.

It is amazing what a layer of translucent vellum can do for a card, it adds a touch of softness while simultaneously allowing the focal point to take center stage.

Bravo Vellum Cardstock! Bravo!

I would encourage you to try this on your next card and see what a difference it makes.
