Vertical Greetings

Welcome to the Pals February 2018 Blog Hop. Our theme this month is “Case the Catty”. The Stampin’ Pretty Pals will copy or remake projects from any of the current Stampin’ Up! catalogs and brochures. After all, who doesn’t CASE (Copy and Share Everything) once in a while. You may be just starting or hopped over from another Pal. In either case you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

I was thinking about exactly what card I wanted to CASE. And decided on a card in the occasions catalog . I love the bright colors and the gradient look with the heat embossing!

In my interpretation of the card, I completely changed the colors.  I did used the technique with the blends to create my background . And the card was turned on its side . And instead of a white card base with a little texture added by stamping .I used the Tutti-Frutti notecards available during Sale-A-Bration .

I love these patterned notecards and envelopes!  I love even more that they are FREE with a $50 purchase.  Yeppie!!!!

  • The gradient background was created with Stampin’ Blends . I used Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay, and Pool Party. This technique is very easy to create .I just simply colored on Whisper White paper each color using the brush tip and overlapping the colors .
  • After the background was created, I stamped the flower-pot from Vertical Greetings with versamark. Then I heat embossed it with copper embossing powder.
  • The just because was heat embossed in while on Night of Navy card stock
  • The final touch was adding the Night of Navy and Calypso Coral Enamel Shapes

The Pal’s Family BLOG Hop

Welcome to the Families First Pals Blog Hop for April 2017.  We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects that are all about our families. This is a great time of year to think about what to make for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or upcoming graduations. And, family vacations are just around the corner… how would you want to remember those special family moments? We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up 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.

This months blog hop is all about family! And what is more family than the family vacation.  The Glamper Greeting stamp set is a throwback to the great family adventure!

Glamper Greeting


This set is perfect for any style of stamping…from watercolor to adding all the little details to just the basics.  Paired with Designer Series Paper, I went with just the basics.   The Urban Underground has a awesome geometric paper that reminded me of mountains! This was the perfect place of our little camper family to visit!!!

Urban Underground

I have really enjoyed this paper! If you do not have it, you really should!!!


The black and vanilla dots are on the back side of the “mountain” paper!!  To pull out the color in the graphic design I added a layer of Delightful Dijon behind the camper and the designer series paper. Not only does it bring out the color it adds a little fludness to the card.

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!
