Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! Can you believe it’s the last week of September already??? This month has flown by! So have you had time to check out the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group yet this morning to see what we are casing (copy and share everything)? If not, here is a look at the sample and sketch for this week:
Pretty cute card! And as you can see, I really changed it up this week. I followed the measurements for the sketch except I added a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer and I changed my sentiment layer to 1 7/8″ x 7/8″ to better fit my sentiment. My card base measures 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/4″ and I chose to change it to a landscape style.
I wanted to use the Best Witches stamp set since Halloween is coming and that piece of the Gingham Cottage DSP is the perfect piece! Since I was using a scrap Basic Black card base, I wanted to brighten it up a bit, so I chose to add a Pumpkin Pie layer. Next I stamped my image and colored it with Smoky Slate, Highland Heather, Pumpkin Pie, Parakeet Party, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake and SU900, one of the new flesh tone Stampin’ Blends Markers. After I colored the flames under the cauldron, I added some Wink of Stella to flames and the bubbles. I started to put everything together like the sample, but on a whim, I changed it up. I added a piece of the Glimmer Paper in Very Vanilla. When it shimmers, the Parakeet Party really brings out the green in the glitter. I attached my glimmer layer with Stampin’ Seal adhesive, then added my colored image and sentiment layers with Black Dimensionals. I had my September Paper Pumpkin sitting on the desk, so I thought the star embellishments were perfect.
For the inside, I added a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Basic White cardstock that I stamped the sentiment, also from the Paper Pumpkin kit, in Memento and the stars in Parakeet Party inks.
And don’t forget to decorate your envelope! The extra piece of DSP leftover from the piece I trimmed for the front of the card was the perfect remnant to add to the envelope flap.
Doesn’t that tie the whole project together nicely? This is definitely my favorite way to decorate envelopes! 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 like the sample or change it up like I did mine. That’s the fun part of casing – you get to create your way!
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope I was able to inspire you and that you take some time get inky today. Have a great week!
