Today, I’m blog hopping again with the lovely ladies from Australia, and if you think I misspelled the word catalog, I didn’t! In Australia, it’s spelled catalogue. I’ve learned so many fun words from my friends “down under”.
In this blog hop, we are Casing the Catalog (okay, I’m back to US spelling). If you haven’t tried this, it’s a great way to get your creative juices flowing. CASE means Copy And Share Everything, and Stampin’ Up! encourages you to use their designs for inspiration. To Case the catalog, you simply pick a sample, and re-make it using different colors, stamps, etc. to put your own “spin” on the card. What you end up with may look nothing like the sample, and that’s ok, too!
I live in the Bluegrass State (hence the name Bluegrass Stamper), the Commonwealth of Kentucky, where we have been making Bourbon for over 200 years. We even have a Bourbon trail, where you can visit the distilleries and sample their wares.

Here’s my take using the Whiskey Business stamp set.
