Learn how to stamp off for card making in today’s CASE the Cattie video! And if you’ve got paper scraps, this layout is perfect for using them up!
CASEing Cards is Fun!
One of the best parts about CASEing someone else’s cards is you get to do whatever you want with her (or his) design!
- Different paper.
- Your OWN stamps!
- Neat embellishments.
How fun is that?
Every week I love to show you how to copy a design from a current Stampin’ Up! catalogue! And I use whatever I have on hand. Never what the artist used! Just so I can give you tips on how YOU can make it too with something you already own! Click here to see more about CASEing!
We’ve already got 19 episodes of our CASE the Cattie series! Take a peek at the ones that interest you on my YouTube playlist clicking here.

I wanted to talk a bit about what “stamping off” means in card making…this is one of the four cards I shared with you!
Some really pretty colours inspired by the wonderful 6″x6″ paper, Tidings of Christmas.
I matched up the colours in the paper with my stamped snowflakes so everything coordinated.
Judy H. is getting that card in her mailbox soon too. She simply took a guess at which design I was going to be creating and her name went into the wheel!
How to Stamp Off for Card Making
While today’s card is a bit more muted, I also shared one with more traditional Christmas colours with different snowflakes, a black and white flower design and one made with the Artistically Inked stamps and paper.
Check out the video to see how different they look!
Here you can see the muted colours of ink you can achieve just by stamping off!
Take a peek at the original card I CASEd from page 54 of the 2021 Stampin’ Up! July to December Catalogue! It’s the one second from the left. So that make 5 cards in total to give you some ideas!

So NON-traditional Christmas colours, yet still traditional! LOL! I wonder how great it would look if you swapped out one of the colours and replaced it with the Cherry Cobbler?
