CASE the Catty – Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals February 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 project today is a CASE of a card on pg. 21 of the Annual Catalog with a little Paper Pixie twist!

Here’s the card from the catalog:

For the background of my card, I used the ink “smooshing” technique that I learned from Kristina Werner. I just love this technique and the effect! And instead of using Gold Glimmer Paper and ribbon, I opted to use a Pool Party layer for a different look. For the final touch, I splattered some Wink of Stella onto the background – swoon! Here’s a closer look:


  • Pool Party card base – 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded at 5-1/2″
  • Pool Party layer – 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Thick Whisper White layer – 3-3/4″ x 5″

Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today! Tonight is my Weekly Wednesday Facebook live on my Facebook Page at 8pm EST. Click HERE to set a reminder. I hope you can join me!
