The Sale-A-Bration continues…with a color challenge! This month’s ICS Blog Hop is all about Sale-A-Bration, plus we’re using specific colors. We could use any of these five colors: Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay, Dapper Denim, Night of Navy, and Island Indigo for our projects. I used all but one (Dapper Denim.) I used the Amazing You stamp set and the coordinating Celebrate You Thinlits Dies – both are available for FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration (only through March 31!)

ICS Blog Hop color challenge 02-2018

I used a technique whose name I can’t remember to save my life. I glued different colored strips of card stock to a larger piece of CS, then die cut from that, so the die cut words are multicolor. Tell me what you think!


Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Crumb Cake card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Night of Navy CS cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Island Indigo CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Bermuda Bay CS cut to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Crumb Cake CS cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Crumb Cake CS cut to 3-3/4″ x 3″
  • Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, and Night of Navy CS cut into 1/2″ x 3″ strips, a few of each color
  • Optional: Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside

Stamped with the Amazing You stamp set:

  • “celebrate” in Crumb Cake ink onto the Crumb Cake CS layer

Die cut using the Celebrate You Thinlits:

  • two words from the strips of CS (see below)
  • NOTE: I used the Precision Base Plate on the Big Shot to cut through the layers with the Thinlits Dies.

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Night of Navy CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • Island Indigo CS layer glued onto the Night of Navy CS layer
  • Bermuda Bay CS layer glued onto the Island Indigo CS layer
  • stamped Crumb Cake CS layer glued onto the Bermuda Bay CS layer
  • 1/2″ strips of CS glued onto the 3-3/4″ x 3″ Crumb Cake CS piece (this is what I die cut the words from above)
  • die cut words glued onto the stamped Crumb Cake CS layer
  • Optional: Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
