Plentiful Plants Catalog CASE + International Highlights Winners Blog Hop

Whether you are a regular visitor or just hopping by, welcome to Julie's Stamping Spot! I'm so excited to be participating in the Top Ten International Highlights Winner’s Blog Hop May 2021 hosted by Kylie Bertucci! First, I want to thank you for taking the time to vote for my card in the gallery a couple of weeks ago. There were so many amazing projects and I am honored to have my card receive so many votes! 

The theme for this month's hop is Thanks. For this month's card, I turned to the new Annual Catalog for inspiration. Each time there is a new catalog, I challenge my team to "CASE" the Catalog. Have you heard of CASEing? It's an acronym that essentially means "copying". Some people design it as "Copy And Steal Everything" or "Copy And Share Everything". I prefer to define it as "Copy And Selectively Edit" -- meaning, take the elements you love and make some selective edits to make it your own. 

In this instance, however, I straight up copied almost EVERYTHING about the card from page 80 of the Annual Catalog! I love it just the way it is and the only thing I changed was the sentiment. There is definitely something about creating samples from the catalog that make them come to life! Here's my card:
I love this little trick from the catalog to clip the plant holder and customize the die cut! I never would have thought to do this on my own! There is so much creative inspiration in the new catalog!

I stamped the inside of the card too! I can't wait to play with this bundle some more!

Watch me create this card -- and see more cards that I've CASEd from the new Annual Catalog in the replay of my Thursday Night Stamp Therapy Facebook Live from May 6:
