CASE-ing the Catty for the Pals Blog Hop


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 lineup 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.


For my project, I chose to CASE a card on Page 16 of the Occasions catalog, using the Bloomin’ Hearts Thinlits Die and Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set, shown here:


Because I’m a fan of black and red for Valentine’s Day, I changed up the colors of my card using a Basic Black card stock with Rose Red flowers and patterned paper from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack. The heart is cut from Whisper White card stock.

I used a VersaMark pad to stamp flowers on my card base and then embossed them with Clear Emboss Powder.

Red sequins from the Brights Sequin Assortment and Basic Pearl Jewels completed the card, which is heading to my daughter in Texas!

  1. Denise, your card is gorgeous! I would never have thought to use black cardstock and you showed how perfect it is for Valentine’s Day cards. Just lovely!
