CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop - Saying Thanks!

Hi there

It's Friday evening again and time for the CASE-ing the Catty Crew to bring you more inspiration from the Stampin' Up! catalogues. This week we are looking at the 'Thanks' section on pages 13-18 of the 2015-16 Annual Catalogue.   Saying thank you is such a small but important way to help build a kinder and gentler society and what better way to do it than with a beautiful handmade card!

You may have come from the blog of the lovely Kathryn Mangelsdorf but if not, you can start here and hop over to the next blog using the button at the bottom of this post.

There are lots of new thank you sets in the catalogue and my card uses a stamp from the 'One Big Meaning' set show below, which I love. It has a great combination of small and large sentiments in different fonts that should suit any style of card you want to make.

Stampin' Up! One Big Meaning Stamp Set

I have taken my layout inspiration from the card on the bottom left of page 16 of the catalogue. I recently  received my 2015-17 In Colour Background Stack, so it was a great opportunity to try out one of the lovely new designs on the bottom section of the card. I have chosen Watermelon Wonder in the tiny floral design - it's so cute! The flower spray is from another new set appropriately called 'Wild about Flowers' and I have stamped it in Tip Top Taupe with Watermelon Wonder flowers. It is photopolymer set so it makes it a snap to line up the flower heads.

Stampin' Up! Wild About Flowers and One Big Meaning

To add some extra pop I have layered the die cut greeting onto a Bermuda Bay mat and added the Bermuda Bay Thick Baker's twine. You can also see I have stamped a matching envelope.

It only takes a couple of minutes to finish the inside of your card when you already have everything on your craft desk. I have used a Watermelon Wonder Mat to contrast with the white base and rounded all the corners. This is my first card made with the new THICK Whisper White and I LOVE it! It was so much easier popping up the front panel with this sturdier card stock.

I love both the sample & your fabulous interpretation, Judy. The palette you have used makes those flowers absolutely "pop". Stunning! :)

Julia Quinn

This card is beautiful, and the colours are lovely too!!

Alison Barclay

Stunning as always! The Watermelon Wonder DSP looks so great against Whisper White. The stamped flowers are gorgeous too. :)


Love this card - so pretty


Your card is just gorgeous Judy. Watermelon Wonder is my new favourite colour so you had me won there but the pop of Bermuda Bay is amazing!

Rachel Palmieri

Such a beautiful card with all that detail, just perfect with the DSP too.

Kathryn Mangelsdorf

Love the new Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe combination, the in colours are really growing on me. I think I have now added another stamp set to my growing wish list.


What a lovely card Judy. How great is it that new DSP is a perfect match for Wild About flowers! oh & I love your paper piercing & corner rounded matting.
