Welcome to the Pals Feburary 2018 Blog Hop. Our theme this month is “Case the Catty”. The Stampin’ Pretty Pals will copy or remake projects from any of the current Stampin’ Up! catalogs and brochures. After all, who doesn’t CASE (Copy and Share Everything) once in a while. You may be just starting or hopped over from another Pal. In either case you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
My idea of casing a project is not necessarily re-creating the project but just being inspired by it. And that’s exactly how my card came about. The Celebrate You Thinlints on page 17 of the Sale-a-bration Catalog has such great examples of using the “celebrate” thinlit. This is such a great collection of sentiment thinlits, that it’s hard to believe that you can earn them for FREE during Sale-a-bration!
Here’s the details
- The card base is Whisper White thick card stock.
- The next layer is also Whisper White thick card stock of which I cut the thinlit four times.
- I added two thin strips of Emerald Envy card stock to this layer and then glued it directly to the card base.
- Next, I gave my Big Shot a real work out by cutting the sentiment out 8 times in the following colors: Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Pumpkin Pie, Peekaboo Peach, Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist, Dapper Denim, Tempting Turquoise.
- For the bottom die cut, I glued it in the card base cutout, then offset the coordinating color just a bit. I really like the effect this created.
- This fun sentiment from the Super Duper stamp set available in the Annual Catalog was just perfect for the inside. The little starbursts are also from this set.
- Ok, so you know I had to jazz up the envelope too! I used the same method as I did on the card and cut the thinlit out of the envelope flap and then glued a piece of Whisper White card stock behind it on the inside of the flap.
- Using Lemon Lime Twist card stock, I cut the thinlit again and glued it in the cut out envelope. I know I could of just cut the thinlit and glued it to the envelope flap but I think it would get torn in mailing. This way it’s flush with the envelope and there are no loose ends to pull up.
I hope you enjoyed this project and will take a look at the Stampin’ Up! catalogs next time you’re looking for ideas and inspiration…they are chock full of them!
