What? Expecting something else?? 😉
Okay – Happy HAWWWWMP Day!!
My card today is a CASE of the catalog. Cuz…I was playing with a challenge that called for CASEing the catalog! So…since it was focused on the Woven Threads suite…that’s what I used! Along with…the Here’s a Card stamp set. Take a look-see:
The layout for this one is from the interesting sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches!
And – as I mentioned…TGIF Challenges asked us to take inspiration from Page 12 of the Annual Catalog!
I started with some pretty paper from the Woven Threads DSP and matted it on Seaside Spray for the card front. I took a second design and embossed it in the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. Then I brushed the panel with some Celestial Copper Delicata Ink – using a wedge of Stampin’ Sponge.
I cut that panel in half length-wise and then cut both those pieces in half width-wise. I used Liquid Glue to adhere the pieces to the card front…
…and then trimmed the excess.
Then I used another piece of Sponge to brush some Frost White Shimmer Paint across the brick pattern.
I used the Heirloom Frames die to cut a Seaside Spray frame. Then I lightly misted the frame with water using my Stampin’ Spritzer, then I embossed the frame in the matching Heirloom Frames 3D Embossing Folder. I brushed the frame with a little more Frost White Shimmer Paint – and lightly creased (“mitered”) the corners.
On a Sahara Sand panel, I used my Stamparatus to add a sentiment from the Here’s A Card stamp set in Early Espresso. Around the sentiment, I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment from Woven Heirlooms in stamped-off-once Sahara Sand. I also used stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile to add the flourish all around.
I brushed a little more Frost White Shimmer Paper over the sentiment panel and adhered it with Liquid Glue. I adhered the frame with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
With Glue Dots, I added Bird Ballad trinkets in the two opposite corners.
I used my Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blend to color some White Solid Baker’s Twine and tied a double-length simple bow. I also tied a double-loop bow with Linen Thread. I used Glue Dots to adhere the two bows in the corner.
With a few little dabs of Liquid Glue, I added a few Woven Threads Sequins – and the card front was done!
On the inside, I used my Stamparatus again to stamp a Woven Heirlooms sentiment in Early Espresso on a Sahara Sand panel. I added some more little flourishes in stamped-off-once Sahara Sand in the corners – and brushed a little more Frost White Shimmer Paint (we’re talking really dry sponge, folks!!) across the panel. I also added a few more Woven Threads Sequins.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Seaside Spray panel and into my Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a couple more (full-strength) Sahara Sand Woven Heirlooms flourishes on the front…
…and some more Woven Threads DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I love this cut-and-then-emboss set that you get when you buy the Heirloom Frames Dies and 3D Embossing Folders (yes – you get all of it in one pack!), don’t you? And the fonts in the bundled Woven Heirlooms stamp set are simply stunning! And – if you’re in the market for lots of different kinds of sentiments – you won’t go wrong with the Here’s a Card set! I hope you like!

We have the answer from yesterday’s question…
Interestingly – Finn has NOT made any attempt to “figure it out”. Fingers crossed that that lasts – our “fence” is not exactly “permanent”!
