Today we’re going to CASE the Cattie and answer the question what does stamping off mean in card making!

What’s a CASE?

Copy And Share Everything is what CASE stands for. It means we can look at ANY design we see and make it with our own stamping supplies. To find out more, click here.

It’s what I’ve started to do every week on my Facebook Business page. And I’d love for you to come join me live every Thursday at 11 am MDT. Click here to see my page now.

Today is episode 5. Can you guess what page of the catalogue I used as my inspiration for this card?
