Making a CASE for You’ve Got This!

Youve Got This Sympathy Card Stampin Up Mary Fish StampinUp Blog

You’ve Got This stamp set went straight to the top of my wish list when I spotted the simple & pretty sample in the new Stampin’ Up! 2015-2016 Annual Catalog on p. 113.  Not only did it convince me I needed the stamp set, I couldn’t wait to recreate the look with a CASE (Copy And Share with Everyone).

With the sample in mind and a few tweaks, today’s card took 5 minutes to make.  Who couldn’t use a little more artful simplicity in our busy lives?

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • To give this CASE a fresh look with minimal effort, I opted to use Bermuda Bay Ink for the flower and sentiment.

  • To frame the look, I added a Sahara Sand layer and a Bermuda Bay card base.
  • For a softer background, I “stamped off” the Sahara Sand ink/background stamp on scratch paper once before stamping it on the Whisper White layer.

  • The Stampin’ Up! Hexagon Punch was used to create the flagged ends.
  • I used one of the new Classy Designer Series Buttons and a piece of Linen Thread to add a simple WOW!  A Glue Dot keeps it in place!

  1. Mary, your card is just so beautiful, this lovely image needs nothing to shine on it’s own but the stamped background in Sahara Sand really draws your eyes to the beautiful flower without overpowering it. I love the beautiful detail of the pretty button and linen thread bow.

  3. Thanks so much, Maria and Frenchie. Your sweet daily comments always brighten my day!

  4. GREAT CASE card my friend. My favorite touch is the ‘Classy Designer Series Button’ and a piece of Linen Thread……That little touch totally completes your card.

  5. I LOVE THIS CARD! It is so pretty. I am wondering why you choose to use the hexagon punch for the banner instead of the new Banner punch?

    • Hi Judy: I used the Hexagon Punch so that I could flip it over and see exactly where I was cropping on the end. I had already stamped the sentiment. The Banner Triple Punch would work as well but when you insert it, you can’t see the end (a “blind” punch). It works best for creating a banner first and THEN stamping.

  6. I’m sold – love your card.

  7. Looks like flower is embossed. So pretty!

  8. Such a pretty card!
