Cue the Confetti for CAS(E) This Sketch

I may need an intervention to keep me away from the amazing papers in the pack of Picture Perfect Party 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Papers. I love the photographic papers in this pack – and the colors and patterns on the opposite side are pretty great, too! I couldn’t stay away as I made this quick-and-simple card for this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge. Here’s my card:

Picture Perfect Birthday, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, CTS255

And here’s the banner for Donna Mikasa’s sketch challenge that inspired my simple card:

CTS255Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Party Fun. Oh, the fun you can have with the products in Stampin’ Up!’s Picture Perfect Party Suite – paper, stamps, inks. This suite has it all!

I wanted to showcase the punch, so I found a sentiment that fits on it. “Cue the Confetti” – a gorgeous mix of print and script font – was perfect! I couldn’t help but to pair it with this amazing paper. Here’s a look at the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set:

  • Wink, Wink. I’m no fan of confetti or glitter – I adore the shine and color of both, but I heartily object to the mess they typically create. Why, then, does this project feature both? Well…the confetti is obviously contained on this printed paper. Love that! I thoroughly applied shine to this Berry Burst band with a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. The sparkles dry into the paper – and done! This isn’t the kind of glitter that will rub off on everything you own – and it looks great! Take a look at how shiny (and clean) this band is:Apply Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to cardstock for a sparkly finish, Stampin' Up!, Brian King
  • Versatile Shape. As I mentioned above, this card started with the Tailored Tag punch – I love this fun hexagon shape! One of my customers said that she wouldn’t need the punch because she doesn’t send Father’s Day cards (the punch is bundled with the True Gentleman Suite). If you think like her, I encourage you to consider all of the sentiments you can nestle inside this fun shape – it’s certainly not limited to the stamps it’s paired with in the catalog. Here’s a look at the Tailored Tag punch:

  1. This one is so simple and fun! That DSP looks amazing. I can’t wait to start using it when my order comes. Thank you again for the great ideas!

  2. Love this DSP, the sparkle and what you did with this card, Brian. This punch is growing on me. Thanks for being an enabler! lol! I hope you weren’t impacted badly by the snow. Enjoy your day!

    • It’s a wonderful punch, HJ! I hope you decide to get it – so many great ways to showcase this fun shape. Thanks for your comments! The snow was manageable this go-round.

  3. Keep “bringing” the party paper. I love it. The tag punch is such a multi-tasker. Perfect for the sentiment.

  4. Wink of Stella is always a favorite for ‘glitzing’ isn’t it? Love the card, such great paper.

  5. Great job casing the sketch Brian. Such a fun card!

  6. Super cute and simple! Love it!

  7. I agree a Brian this paper pack is awesome, I had to order another just from seeing all the fun ideas!

  8. I am CASEing the front of the card and inside putting “It’s your birthday, celebrate” or whatever I choose. Maybe adding a teeny plastic flat bag of confetti just for fun. I have a supply of “CELEBRATE” postage stamps for the envelope too. Thanks for a quick and fun card. I could even put some coordinating cardstock scraps in the shredder to make the confetti!

  9. Super fun take on the sketch, Brian! And I’m loving that amazing photographic patterned paper–so awesome!

  10. Beautiful card Brian. This paper is amazing and it makes it easy to build up your birthday card stash.

  11. Love how you have the DSP working for you! Fun card! I am about to do this sketch and see if I can get the new Beautiful Peacock (SAB) set to work for me.

  12. I never considered these papers until I saw your card. Great use of color and lots of fun!

  13. Fun card, Brian! Love how you used confetti and glitter, without using confetti and glitter.

  14. Super fun take on the sketch, Brian!

  15. I came over because I couldn’t think how you had attached all that confetti…I still can’t believe it is a patterned paper…you are right…truly amazing!

  16. I love this card and it the winner with my vote. So the confetti is actually the paper design? Wow!

  17. I love the use of wink of stella. I haven’t tried it yet but I LOVE sparkle and glitter. I’ll have to try that. Thanks!

  18. Cue the confetti, cue the fun! And bonus points for not having to deal with actual confetti all over the place!
