On the CASE: A Big Thank You

Oct 24, 2018 | Gratitude, Thank You & Thanksgiving Cards | 0 comments

This is seriously the perfect thank you for anyone!

For today’s CASE, I dove back into the Annual Catalog to find the perfect all-purpose thank you design. And I found it in A Big Thank You. If you need a masculine thank you, follow today’s directions to a “T”. Or, change up the colors to create a design that’s just right for the recipient! If you have a Stamparatus, you’ll even get to try out a fun technique – the “step-down”.

For On the CASE with Ann & Nicole (October 2018 - A Big Thank You - 2018-19 Annual Catalog). Featuring, A Big Thank You stamp set, Thank You Thinlit die, Stamparatus.

On the CASE Notes

(your step-by-step guide)

  1. Score your card base at 4″. Fold and burnish the edge with a bone folder. Adhere the Crumb Cake panel to the base. Set aside.
  2. Adhere the multipurpose adhesive sheet to the Night of Navy panel. Diecut the “Thank You” sentiment. Use the Precision Base Plate for best results.
  3. Set up the lines image on the Stamparatus. Be sure to have the plate aligned to the right so you can “step-down” the notches.
  4. Stamp in Pool Party first. Move the Stamparatus plate down one notch and stamp again. Repeat this for a total of four lines.
  5. Clean the stamp and align it just below the first Pool Party line. Re-adhere to the Stamparatus plate and repeat the step-down process in Pear Pizzazz.
  6. Repeat the step-down process one last time, this time with Mango Melody.

***Nit-picky details: I left my piece of cardstock slightly larger than the finished size so I could keep a magnet in place the whole time. After I was finished stamping, I cut it down to the proper size.

  1. Adhere the finished panel to the card base.
  2. Adhere the diecut sentiment to the card base.
  3. Stamp out the rest of the sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White. Snip out the words.
  4. Pop up the sentiment using a small piece of Foam Strips.
  5. Add a Whisper White Baker’s Twine bow.

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

Difficulty Level: 2 out of 5 – There is a bit of technique to this card – it’s not just a stamp & stick! I was grateful that I have a Stamparatus, because it made quick work out of the striped background pattern. This “step-down” technique is definitely a fun one to try! I love that the colors in this card are totally interchangeable. You can use any color set you have on hand – not just the colors from the CASE. Go monochrome, bright, neutral or regal – any combo will work! The diecut and simple snipped sentiment really help to make the stamped background shine.


We hope our projects today inspired you to try CASE-ing the catalog too! We’re “on the case”, looking for the hashtag #SUontheCASE on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Google+ & Pinterest) and if we find one of your projects, we’ll share it, like it, repost it – we’ll do it all!

We’ll be On the CASE again in 2 weeks!

AECP: Create a Rotating Stamp Design

Today’s technique is going to blow your mind!
I have been a fan of the rotating stamp style, like Concord & 9th’s Turnabout ™ stamps, for a while now. It’s just so cool how you can turn the paper 90-degrees, stamp the same image, and end up with a filled-in design that looks like wallpaper or wrapping paper!

AECP: Double Stencil Technique

Let’s go next-level with stencils!
Stencils are pretty popular right now, and there’s so many ways you can use them. I was inspired by my latest Altenew Academy class to see what new and innovative way I could use them for my latest project.
