#CTC276 CASEing the Animals from the Catalogue

How are you going the interpret the challenge this week? Lots of animals in the annual catalogue for you to CASE or put your own twist on. The crew would love to see you play along after you create your card, post it to our Facebook page using the link over on the right.

I've turned to page 41 and the Playful Pets suite for my inspiration:

The Playful Pets DSP and Pampered Pets stamp set has some very quirky little characters - each with relatable personality traits! 

I've used a base of thick Whisper White. Onto that I've added a layer of Basic Black . A strip of Playful Pets DSP is adhered to the left hand side. The right hand side has a piece of cardstock, Basic Gray for the cat and Sahara Sand for the dog which was embossed with the Old World Paper embossing folder. The greeting is from Pampered Pets, stamped in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock and diecut with a Stitched Rectangles die.

The dog was stamped in Memento black ink onto Basic Gray cardstock and diecut using the Pets Dies. I've used the same dies to cut the paws out of the (retired) Hearts Doilies and added a scrap of Basic Black behind to make the paws pop. Shame the doilies retired as being in Real Red and Flirty Flamingo I'm sure they were meant to remain with this suite. The dog's collar has been coloured with my Chalk Marker and a tiny dot onto his eyes.

The cat was stamped in Memento black ink onto Sahara Sand and diecut with the Pets Dies.

Time for you to hop over and see the cute card our friend Peta has created with the same suite. I had a feeling she might be won over with the cats, but with two dogs and two cats, I have to remain with a boot in both do and cat camp - one of the few people who can't decide. Love them both (although they do have their moments)!!


  1. These are super cute, and I agree - the doilies are a perfect fit
