On the CASE: A Big Thank You
On the CASE: A Big Thank You
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”.
Don’t forget to leave a comment at the end of the post to qualify for my monthly giveaway!

On the CASE Notes
(your step-by-step guide)
- 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.
- Adhere the multipurpose adhesive sheet to the Night of Navy panel. Diecut the “Thank You” sentiment. Use the Precision Base Plate for best results.
- 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.
- Stamp in Pool Party first. Move the Stamparatus plate down one notch and stamp again. Repeat this for a total of four lines.
- 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.
- 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.
- Adhere the finished panel to the card base.
- Adhere the diecut sentiment to the card base.
- Stamp out the rest of the sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White. Snip out the words.
- Pop up the sentiment using a small piece of Foam Strips.
- 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!

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!
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.
Welcome back for another Festive Friday!
