Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!! We’re on the backside of the big freeze – supposed to be 70 on Friday! I’ll take it – it was so nice to have liquid water in the horse buckets and troughs this morning! We Deatherage’s don’t care for cold overmuch!
I spent some time today cutting Designer Paper to put my catalog shares together! And – I had a helper!!
He did a bit of “helping” the previous night, too – I’ll show you that in just a second…
My card for today uses the new So Detailed Thinlits and the So In Love stamp set. With a bit of Succulent Garden DSP. Take a look-see:
The layout is inspired by the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.
And my color palette come from the Color Throwdown challenge:
I started off with a piece of Old Olive paper from the Succulent Garden DSP and I SNAILd it to a Melon Mambo mat. Then I pulled out the So Detailed Thinlits and cut one of the larger dies from Basic Black. Using Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue, I adhered the die cut to the bottom of the card front.
Next up, I cut a Whisper White oval with my Ovals Layering Framelits and adhered it with Liquid Glue over the So Detailed die cut. Then I wrapped some Melon Mambo Thick Baker’s Twine around the panel a few times, criss-crossing it over the white oval and securing it in the back with scotch tape. In my picture, my twine is a bit catty-wompass. Soon I’ll show you that it doesn’t even matter!
My sentiment is from the So In Love stamp set. Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Old Olive Card Stock. Then I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to add two leaf images in Old Olive around the sentiment. I cut it with another oval and matted it on a Melon Mambo scalloped oval.
Then I popped it over the baker’s twine with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On the inside, I stamped several of the flowers from the So In Love stamp set in Tuxedo Black across the bottom of a Whisper White panel. Using the Melon Mambo Watercolor Pencil and a Blender Pen, I lightly colored the flowers. Then I matted the panel on Melon Mambo and Whisper White.
I SNAILd it into a Basic Black card base. For the front of the card, I first SNAILd a piece of Whisper White directly to the card base, then I popped my card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the So In Love flowers in Tuxedo Black, colored with the Melon Mambo Watercolor Pencil on the front…
Et Voila! The So Detailed Thinlits have 3 gorgeous dies in the set – and they all three cut wonderful delicate shapes. You’re going to want to have these in your tool chest! I kind of love how this card turned out – and hope you like!

P.s. Oh yes. I mentioned that Finn had “helped” me a little more. And that my catty-wampus baker’s twine didn’t matter. Putting those two clues together, I suspect the next picture (it’s disturbing – your children shouldn’t see it probably!) will not be overly surprising.
