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.
