Around the World Blog Hop: CASE the Catalog Challenge

Welcome to the Around the World Stampin' Up! Blog Hop. I'm so excited to partner with my friends all over the world to share inspiring projects with you. If you followed our Around the World Stampin' Challenges that we did last year and the year before, you know how incredibly talented these demonstrators are! You may have come over from Martha Lucia Gomez's blog. If not, be sure to visit all of them until you come back through Kristine's to mine again. The list is at the end of this post.

This month, we are "CASEing the Catalog". CASE stands for Copy And Selectively Edit. I love that our catalog is also an idea book -- full of samples that are meant to be copied and inspire your own creations.
My cards were inspired by the Foxy Friends card on page 56 of the 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog. First, I copied the card exactly as it was shown. It's so much cuter in person than in print!

Stampin' Up! Supplies: Foxy Friends stamp set, Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, Smoky Slate ink, Basic Gray ink, Basic Black ink, Calypso Coral ink, Thick Whisper White cardstock, A Little Foxy Designer Paper Stack, Fox Builder Punch, Smoky Slate 1/8" Stitched Ribbon, Rhinestone Jewel Accents
 
Then, I switched up the colors and designer paper and used a different image from the same stamp set. I used this card as a make and take for several of my workshops and team meetings last month. I love showing people that you can copy ideas right from the catalog. You don't have to create original designs to enjoy stamping!

Lastly, I changed up the stamp set and colors completely and used the same layout to make a card.
