Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday and welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a good start! Have you been over to the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group yet today to see what we are casing (copy and share everything)? If not, here’s a look at the sample and the sketch:
Isn’t that an adorable card? I love the new ice cream set, but I was cleaning my studio from last Friday’s Stamp Club classes and the Lots of Hearts stamp set was sitting there, so I went for it!
I did follow the measurements in the sketch for my card,but I added an inside layer of Whisper White cardstock that measures 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ for the sentiment. I even used mostly scraps and left over pieces for my card which is always a plus. I went with a Poppy Parade cardstock base and chose a piece of the new True Love DSP for my first layer. I love that the entire pack of DSP is in black and white, it just gives you so many possibilities! After I trimmed my layer, I took out one of my new Blending Brushes to add some Poppy Parade ink to the layer. I have never used one before and I have to say, I have a new favorite tool! It was so easy!! After I colored my layer, I attached it to the card base with some Stampin’ Seal adhesive. Next I cut out my stitched rectangle and stamped the sentiment from the stamp set in Tuxedo Black ink. I then took a scrap of Whisper White (which is no longer available, but I have a ton to use up!) and stamped the flower image, also in Tuxedo Black. I colored the leaves with my Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Marker and the flower petals with my Light Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers. These are Stampin’ Up!’s version of alcohol markers and I absolutely love them! They come in almost all of our colors with a dark and a light version. So easy to coordinate! After I colored it, I punched it out with the solid heart from the Heart Punch Pack set and then attached it to a scalloped heart punched in a scrap of Poppy Parade cardstock. Next I added some adhesived to the back of the stamped rectangle and added some of the Glittered Organdy Ribbon. I then attached it to the card front with dimensionals, added the heart with more dimensionals and then sprinkled on some rhinestones.
For the inside, I kept it simple. I just stamped the sentiment in black and the heart in Poppy Parade ink, just enough to tie it all together.
And don’t forget to decorate your envelope! Even with just a simple heart ties it together with the card.
Clean and simple, my favorite kind of projects!! So what do you think? Now it’s your turn! Create your take on this week’s sample and share it with us over at the FB Group.
