Lighthouse Point Casing For The Pals Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, the theme is “CASE the Catalog” so the Design Team chose a card from the new Annual Catalog and has CASEd it with their own creative twist. We really hope that you are inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

My favorite bundle in the new annual catalog is the Lightouse Point bundle found on page 100. Above, I included a photo from that page of the projects Stampin Up! has provided to inspire us. I chose for the hop today to do a bit of casing from the card on the lower left in green. I kept the layout and sentiment but decided I would love it in Balmy Blue! 
I took a white base and added some Balmy Blue ink to the middle of the base by blending with my blending brush. I then cut a circle out with the Stylish Shapes dies from a piece of Balmy Blue card stock. I ran the piece through the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder for texutre. I stamped the lighthouse on white card stock in Smoky Slate and then added the Black stripes. I stamped the light on white card stock in Crushed Curry and the sentiment in Black ink and cut it all out with the Lighthouse dies. I even cut the ladder looking die in Crushed Curry with the same dies. I finished off with some black matte dots. 

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on July 13th. Our theme will be “Create Your Own Background” when our Design Team creates a background using any technique they wish, such as stencils, stamping, watercolor, embossing but not DSP.

Until then, have fun in your craft space!

Hope you have a bright and beautiful day!

  1. Very pretty card. What encouragement to someone struggling!

  2. Beautiful color shift Windy! Terrific fun to see how you put your own stamp on this CASE Pal!

  3. Gorgeous card! I was a wee bit disappointed that there was no hint of purple in the sky :)

  4. I fully expected a purple lighthouse but the Balmy Blue is lovely!

  5. Very pretty Windy! It looks great in Balmy Blue and the embossed background is really a nice touch.

  6. I love your change in color and how you embossed the cardstock. It's gorgeous they way you did it.

  7. So pretty - and I actually like your color combination better than the catalog. Beautiful!
