Want to CASE the Cattie again and find out how to use masks to stencil pretty handmade cards? Then let’s get started!
What’s a CASE?
My weekly live video series called CASE the Cattie is designed to show you exactly how to make items from the amazing Stampin’ Up! publications. You can see I’m up to Episode 14 so youcan find them all by clicking right here.
To see them live, all you need to do it head on over to my Facebook page every Thursday at 11 am MT!
Maybe you already know what page of the catalogue I used as my inspiration for this card?
I picked this card to CASE because of its irregular shape and size. And since it showed a fun technique I haven’t shared before that I thought might come in handy if you have the masks and never use them!
Here are all three currently available to purchase. At only $11 for 4 designs, they are an inexpensive way to add lots of variety to your card making.Masks to Stencil Great Designs
How to Use Masks to Stencil
When I CASEd the catalogue card that I made for you, I used bolder colours than the one in the catalogue. It still shares lots of the same design elements so you can see a few of my tricks to figure out the card.
I changed up the theme too from summer, to fall, to winter and here, to a birthday. It’s neat to see the versatility of one design!

When I asked in the video, it was a toss up between this card and another of the 3 ideas for your favourite. It’s hard to go wrong with the ombre-like colouring.
If you’re wondering where that sentiment comes from, it’s the Sale-a-Bration free stamp set. It’s full of fantabulistic greetings all suggested by Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.
There’s a little bit of everything here so it makes it a handy set to have, at an unbeatable price!
Get a group together with orders of $375 (CDN), it’s automatically yours. Or if you’ve got a huge Wish List yourself and you want to splurge, it comes to you free too with a $375 order!
