Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! If this is your first time visiting my neck of the woods, welcome and please be sure to join my email list to keep up on all the scrappy news around here. Have you been over to the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group yet this morning to see what we are casing (copy and share everything)? If not, here’s a look at the sample and the sketch:
I love that we have sketches! It really helps when you’re creating as it takes all of the guess work out when trimming your paper. Here’s a look at my take:
I had to giggle when I was getting ready to create this post. As a blogger for the FB Group, we get the sample info early so that we have our samples ready to go on the day of the challenge. Well, I looked at the sample and wrote all the measurements down and then proceeded to create my card…not realizing how closely my take is to the original! But what is even more important about my take, is the entire card, including the Linen Thread and the Coastal Cabana card base, is created from scraps! I started by choosing my stamp set, Pretty Perennials. We used this bundle a couple of months ago for my Scrap Club and everyone loved it. Since I haven’t used it since, I thought this sketch was perfect for it. I used Highland Heather, Coastal Cabana, So Saffron and Early Espresso inks. The pink you see is actually one of the new In Colors, Polished Pink, that I grabbed in error. So there’s your sneak peek! lol I took my Basic White layer that measured 3 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ and just stamped my images randomly in the inks I mentioned. I then cut them into 1 1/4″ wide panels so I could determine where my sentiment would go, which is stamped in Early Espresso. Next I took a scrap of the In Good Taste DSP and trimmed it to the measurments in the sketch. I added some Stampin’ Seal on the back of each side so that I could attache my piece of Linen Thread around when I wound it around it, and then attached it to the card front. I add my panels over that layer with dimensionals and added some of the clear Elegant Faceted Gems. My double bow of Linen Thread is attached with a Mini Glue Dot.
For the inside, I stamped the same random pattern across the top and added my sentiment in Early Espresso ink. I love how large the “happy” is!
And don’t forget your envelope! Again, I repeated my random pattern using all the soft inks. I just love the look of this combination!
Now it’s your turn. Create your take on this week’s sample and share it with us over at the Facebook Group. You can create it just like the sample or change it up a little or a lot, it’s all up to you. That’s the fun part of casing! And if you’re not a member of our group yet, no problem; just request to join. We would love to have come and play along with us!
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great Tuesday and have a chance to get inky!
