Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! If this is your first time, welcome and be sure to join my email list for all the scrappy news in my neck of the woods. Have you been over to the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group yet today to see what we’re casing (copy and share everything)? If not, here’s a look at the sketch and this week’s sample:
I love that we have sketches! It really helps when you create quickly, especially if you’re crafting mojo is in a slump. I mostly followed the sketch measurements, but my sentiment strip is a little larger at 3/4″ x 2 1/8″ because the sentiment I chose was too large for the measurements in the sketch. I chose the new Rise & Shine Sale-a-bration stamp set that became available today. It is so cute!
I started by choosing my DSP, which is from the Magnolia Lane pack. I few years ago we had another coffee themed DSP pack and this piece of DSP reminds me of one from that pack. I cut my strips to size, 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ and then layered them on my Thick Whisper White card base. Next I stamped my cup image in Garden Green ink and the flower in Rococo Rose ink. This stamp set is one of the reversible style stamps, which means you can flip the stamp over and stamp it in the mirror image. How cool is that? After I stamped it, I cut out with the cup die from the Cup of Cheer Die set. Remember that one from the Holiday Catalog? It’s baacckkk!! lol To follow the sketch, I cut a circle of Whisper White cardstock with the 2 1/4″ circle die from the Layering Circle Dies and then cut a coordinating scalloped circle in Rococo Rose cardstock. I glued them together and added it to the card front with dimensionals. Next I added the cup to the circles with dimensionals. I stamped my sentiment in Early Espresso ink on a scrap of Whisper White cut to fit and added it to the card front with dimensionals. Then to finish it, I added some rhinestones.
For the inside I masked a portion of the sentiment so that I just had the “but first” portion, and then stamped it in Early Espresso ink. I then stamped the “coffee”, also in Early Espresso. I added the steam image in Sahara Sand, but stamped off first.
I really love how it turned out! Now it’s your turn! Create your take on today’s sample. You can create it as is, or change it up a little or a lot; it’s all up to you! That’s the fun part of casing! Then share it with us over at the FB Group. If you aren’t a member of the group yet, not a problem! Just request to join; we would love to have you come over and play along.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great Tuesday!
