Sunshine Blossoms In Bloom | Stamping with Large Sentiments

Sunshine Blossoms In Bloom | CTS396 | #MCC28

Welcome to Tuesday stampers. So today I am sharing a project I originally crafted a few week’s ago. The challenge from the CASE THIS SKETCH Blog was to use a LARGE SENTIMENT. So I couldn’t resist to play along, as it was going to the theme for this week’s Mystery CASE Challenge. I hope you enjoy the project. It was so bright and cheery! Something we all need a bit more of these days.


Hey there stamping friends, if you are new here to the Stampin’ Show & Tell Blog WELCOME! I’m so glad you popped over to take a closer look at this project. I typically share a new project Monday through Friday, and have a weekly Mystery CASE Challenge theme we focus on as well. Here is today’s project.

This card project was inspired by the CAS(E) This Sketch blog challenge #396. As soon as I saw the image of the sketch I knew I had to pull out my newest stamp set Ridiculously Awesome and use one of it’s large sentiments!


Let’s look at the sketch and then take a look at my Stampin’ Show & Tell Video Demonstration. Remember, you can always visit the CASE THIS SKETCH blog directly from this link or the sketch links back to their post as well.

Watch as I take you through this quick and #simplestamping project from start to finish. You will see just how easy it is to craft.


#Simplestamping Card! Yes, this definitely qualifies as a SIP [stamps, ink, paper] card. It’s one layer of cardstock and no fancy embellishments. I don’t think this project really needs anything added. But remember, when you make your own version, do as you wish!

“It’s your card, make it your way!”

Why did I use the Stamparatus? I pulled out the Stamparatus for this project, since the blooms image was very large and I wanted to be sure to get a nice clear image. With the Stamparatus, if needed, you can always repeat your stamping before you take up your cardstock. Plus, I can always create duplicate cards if I wanted to quick and easy with the image all set up to just stamp, stamp, stamp!

You Are Wonderful | Stamping with Large Sentiments

You Are Wonderful | Stamping with Large Sentiments | #MCC28

It’s Monday so it’s time to kick-off this week’s Mystery CASE Challenge. This week our theme is to stamp with LARGE SENTIMENTS! Yes, I know some of you love them, some of you hate them! But let’s stamp with them and see what we can create.

Today I let the sentiments really be the focal point of the project. I featured the Rooted In Nature stamp set. I enjoy stamping with all the images, but I really have always enjoyed the larger sentiments. [THINKING OF YOU] and [YOU ARE WONDERFUL] Watch the Stampin’ Show & Tell Video Demonstration as I construct the card.

Stampin’ Show & Tell – You Are Wonderful | Stamping with Large Sentiments

So you can see it really is a simple stamping project. I picked a piece of the Plaid Tidings DSP [patterned paper], and the coordinating colors of cardstock and ink.

Keeping it to Rich Razzleberry, Purple Posy, and Whisper White, so that all the colors worked together seamlessly. I stamped with the Rich Razzleberry Ink, but did some stamping off on the leaf images to lighten the color.

The sentiment tag was die-cut from the Tasteful Labels Dies collection. I love the way it is not only curvy cut, but also has a beveled embossed decorative edge as well.

Materials & Measures:

  • Rich Razzleberry Cardstock – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
  • Purple Posy Cardstock – 1 7/8 x 5
  • Plaid Tidings DSP – 1 7/8 x 5
  • Whisper White Cardstock – 3 3/4 x 5
  • Purple Posy Cardstock – sized to fit the die-cut for the sentiment of choice
  • Whisper White Envelope

So now it’s your turn to stamp a project. Grab a stamp set or even a die-cut that features a large sentiment. Decide if you are going to stamp a background like in last week’s Mystery CASE #mcc27 [see the project here] or if you might use a sample of your patterned paper collection. Then choose your colors and cardstock layers.

Snap a photo of your project and share it with us. I know I enjoy a good Show & Tell of projects. You are welcome to send me an email with your project photo, my email is listed below. Or if you want to share it on Facebook, join us in the Stampin’ Show & Tell Time with Susan Facebook Group and post it there.

Here’s to the start of a great week everyone. Enjoy your stamping time, and don’t over think it! Sometimes the simple cards are as wonderful as the intricate cards.

Happy Stamping,

Butterfly Shaker Card

Original Posted February 2017

Today I am sharing an ARCHIVE project card that was probably the first shaker type card I shared with my customers. This week for our Mystery CASE challenge, I have challenged you all to try your hand at making one of these yourselves.

You can watch the video for this project, and if you missed yesterdays post, go back and see that video as well. They take time, and bit of planning, but they are not impossible. Good luck!

Butterfly Shaker Card – Stampin’ Show & Tell Video

Materials & Measures:

  • 100# Whisper White 4 ¼ x 11
  • Whisper White 3 ¾  x 4 ¾ (qty 2)
  • Window Sheet 3 ½ x 3 ½ 
  • Whisper White Envelope

Tips & Tricks:

  • You need to make a window cut out for the top of your shaker card.
  • So cut out the butterfly die, and then back that piece of cardstock with the opening in it with a window sheet.
  • Then encircle that cut out shape with the dimensional strips to create a pocket to put your sequin or other filler in the window.
  • Seal the “pocket” with a backer piece of cardstock.  You need to create an envelope for your “shaker pieces to live in”.
