CASE-ing the Catty #309 – Many Messages Bundle

Happy Sunday, crafty friends! Hope you are all fine & dandy & well. It just so happens that today is my birthday. Yes, there was a party – a Frozen themed party at a water park which I had to escort my four-year-old to. I’m hoping there’s a cake for me later!

A great way to celebrate my birthday is to join in the Case-ing the Catty blog hop tonight, where we have a heap of inspiration to choose from in the bundle section of the January-June Mini Catalogue.

I’ve chosen the Many Messages bundle to CASE. I’ve been having a lot of fun with his bundle since it arrived. I’m a huge fan of small sentiment strips generally so this is a great collection of different sentiments, and being able to stamp and then cut out a whole sheet of them at once is just next-level awesome.

I had a bit of fun making this card by using the die a little differently. After cutting a page of black on white cardstock sentiments, I took the negative left by the die and used that as a stencil to blend onto another piece of white cardstock, creating the front panel for my card.

The rest of the card is pretty simple – I cut the front panel with a Stitched Rectangle die (I find it hard to make a card without at least one of these somewhere on it). I layered this with some pink and white card layers and the whole thing is on a Melon Mambo base card.

I chose a few of the sentiments from Many Messages to pop onto a Vellum Stitched Circle – because why have just one when you can have more?? A little white twine and voila – card done!

All the work was in the blending and that was mainly just fun – and a breeze with the new Blending Brushes from Stampin’ Up!

Next up this week you’ll be returning to Rebecca, keep on hopping along to see all the crew’s fabulous creations.

Thanks for stopping by,

Siobhan.

    How totally clever to create a stencil with this die!! ANd the sponging is sublime. Too too too clever and cute! You’re such an inspiration!

    What a great idea! Love how the background looks, and then using multiple sentiments on the vellum brings it all together.

    I hope you had a lovely birthday and did end up getting a cake. What a great idea to use the blending brushes with the negative image of the die. I love the multiple sentiments too
