Beautiful You - CASEing the Catalog

Hey crafters!

I wanted to share StamperMan Russ's card from last Friday Night Stamping, along with the card from the catalog that inspired it.

And here's the card from page 20 of the annual catalog that he CASEd:

You see - a completely different stamp set - different style. He took the stamped panel on the right and used Designer Series Paper. And he used the Stitched Nested Labels Dies, the same as the catalog sample, for the "arrow" piece. As he worked on assembling his pieces, he decided to move the accent strip to the right side and lay it over the die cut piece. Then he colored the dancing woman with Stampin' Blends and "fussy" cut around the image. 

It's a very different looking card than the catalog sample, but having the basic layout done for you makes unleashing your creativity easier.

Thanks for stopping by,
