The Catalog is More than a Shopping Tool | A Little Lace Tutorial

It’s fun to look through a brand new catalog to see all of the new stamp sets, embellishments, dies and more, but did you know the catalog is an amazing idea book that can get your creative juices flowing?!

This was the case for me with the A Little Lace bundle. I really like this stamp set AND the coordinating die, but I was struggling with ideas. It was also love at first sight when I turned to page 42 and saw this card.

Stampin’ Up! has this wonderful acronym: CASE.

C = Copy
A = And
S = Share
E = Everything

That means anything you see in the catalog or any projects you see posted by a demonstrator like me are intended to be copied. You can make your card exactly like the one you see in the catalog or on my website, or you can use it as a jumping off point and add your own flair or tweak it a bit based on the tools and supplies you have available to you.

So for today’s card, I did a little CASEing and I love the end result. I also discovered a few tips that make this card even easier to recreate.

  1. Start with your heat embossing, that way if you make a mistake, you can start over without losing all your work.
  2. I made a separate post with tips on cutting intricate background dies. Those tips apply here for sure.
  3. Use liquid glue applied to a sponge or similar tool to add glue to the back of your lace piece.
  4. Tie your bow while it’s still attached to the spool. This makes adjusting it so much easier.

I hope you have fun CASEing this or other cards from the new catalog. I would love to see your creations! Feel free to post a link in the comments below, share them on my facebook page, or send them to me in an e-mail.

Most of all, I hope you find joy in creating as you spread kindness and encouragement with your scraps of paper!
