Pals Blog Hop – CASE the Catty


Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for February 2016! We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month we are CASE-ing a project shown in a current Stampin’ Up! catalog. After all, with the Annual, Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs available right now, there is much inspiration to choose from. We hope you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below. The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.


I chose to CASE (copy and share everything) a card from page 133 in the Annual Catalog. I just love the simplicity of the design, as well as how it showcases the Larger Than Life Alphabet & Numbers stamp set. This is a great set for home decor projects or making a statement on cards. It’s perfect for making monogrammed notecards. I used Shimmery White for the card base and I stamped the Watercolor Wash stamp image in Blushing Bride. To make the word “love” really pop, I heat-embossed it in black, which also hides the Glue Dots I used to adhere the vellum to the card base. “You” was cut out of Gold Foil Sheets using the Hello You Thinlits and adhered using the fabulous Fine-Tip Glue Pen (a must have). And that’s it! A quick and easy card that really makes a statement for your loved one.

Thanks for visiting! To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!

  1. Julie the use of the Watercolor Wash stamp is perfect. I haven’t used that stamp yet as I’ve been a little intimidated but you make it look so fresh and easy.

  2. I couldn’t agree with you more on this card. One of the things that makes a statement to me is the Big Bold letters against the soft pink background. Screams both strength and beauty. Great Job Julie!
