On the CASE: One Big Meaning

Apr 11, 2018 | Gratitude, Thank You & Thanksgiving Cards, On the CASE | 0 comments

About a year ago, Ann and I had this great idea…

We thought it would be fun to take you on a journey through current Stampin’ Up! catalogs where we CASE the projects and give you all the details to recreate them.

It is truly amazing that we’ve been at this for a YEAR already!

I thought that in celebration, it would be fitting to share a thank you card design as a way to say “thanks” for going on this journey with us.

We are both excited to continue to bring you this featured segment on both of our blogs – hopefully for years to come!

For On the CASE with Ann & Nicole (April 2018 - One Big Meaning - 2017-18 Annual Catalog). Featuring, One Big Meaning, Pinewood Planks DTIEF, Hearts & Stars Elements. For more details including tips for CASE-ing this card , click through. #pmretreat #stampinup #thsnks #thankyou #handstamped

On the CASE Notes

(your step-by-step guide)

  1. Score your card base at 4 1/4″. Fold and burnish the edge with a bone folder.
  2. Adhere the large Naturally Eclectic DSP panel to the card base.
  3. Stamp the sentiment in Emerald Envy on the Whisper White strip. Using your Stamparatus will help ensure a perfect impression!
  4. Emboss the Soft SKy panel with the Pinewood Planks DTIEF
  1. Adhere the DSP strip to the embossed Soft Sky cardstock panel.
  2. Adhere the large wood heart to the Soft Sky panel.
  3. Add Linen Thread and tie in a bow off to the left.
  1. Adhere finished panel to the card base, at an angle.
  2. Adhere sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Adhere final small woodcut hearts.

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

Difficulty Level: 1 out of 5 – Whew! I needed a quick and simple design this week – and this One Big Meaning card delivered! This was a very straightforward design – perfect to use as a demonstration card, or even as a make-and-take. The little bit of embossing, and the use of the woodcut hearts make the card look much more difficult than you’d think!


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!

On the CASE: Perennial Birthday

I found a chameleon in today’s CASE! Today’s CASE file caught my eye almost instantly. I was so glad that the Perennial Birthday stamp set carried over as I’d only used it with the kit (retired) that accompanied it last year.

On the CASE: Colorful Seasons

Looking for a versatile set for any season? Look no further! For today’s On the CASE, I dove back into the Annual Catalog to revive a fan favorite from last year – Colorful Seasons!

On the CASE: Eastern Beauty

It’s time to explore another CASE file! So put on your super sleuth hats!
I thought I’d pull out a huge favorite from last year’s catalog to show you how this year’s new colors really take the set to a new level.
