It’s time for another CASE-ing Tuesday project! If this is your first time here, welcome and please be sure to join my email list! Have you been over to the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group to see the project we are casing (copy and share everything) this week? If not, here’s a look at the project and the sketch:
I love that we have sketches because it really helps you in the design process whether you are new to the craft, have a creative block or just don’t have a lot of time to create something. This week I was especially glad to have the sketch as I have a lot going on in the studio and have family here visiting from out of state. As you can see, I pretty much followed the picture verbatim; I just changed up the color and papers.
I started by choosing my piece of the Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP and then my color of cardstock. I went with Blushing Bride, as it is one of the coordinating colors. I cut out a piece of the Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the same die as the sample and then cut my DSP with the smaller die. I inked my stamp first with Versa Mark and then in Blushing Bride so that I could emboss to make the sentiment stand out a little more. By inking first in Versa Mark and then in any of our inks, you are able to emboss with clear embossing powder as the Versa Mark keeps the ink wet for a longer period of time. I sprinkled on some Clear Embossing Powder and just as I was hitting it with the Heat Tool, I thought to try some of the Shimmer White Embossing Powder over it. It did give it a little bit of sparkle. Next I stamped the snowflakes on either corners in the same method, but used only the Shimmer White Embossing Powder. Since I was going with the pink look, I took a piece of our Silver Metallic Edged Ribbon and colored it with the Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Marker, one of our alcohol markers. When it dried I thought it looked very close to the Blushing Bride cardstock. I cut my piece of vellum cardstock to the measurements of the sketch and glued it down with Snail. Normally with vellum the Snail adhesive shows, but it’s going to be covered so it works for this. I then wrapped the ribbon around the card base and tied it in a bow. I used Mini Glue Dots to glue the DSP to the Sparkle Paper, added dimensionals and glued it to the card front. Since it didn’t have enough bling with the shimmer embossing powder and glimmer paper (lol) I added some of the pink rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones pack. I LOVE those rhinestones!!! So what do you think?
I love how it turned out! Here’s a look at the inside:
Now it’s your turn! Create your take on today’s sample and share it with us over on the FB Group. You can create it as is or put your spin on it, it’s all up to you! If you aren’t a member of the group yet, no problem, just request to join. We would love to have you play along with us!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!
